Sony was and is still one of the most respectable manufacturers of home appliances out there.

The KLV-43W662F is a full HD LED Internet TV from Sony with some great features hidden up its sleeve.

Display

The display on this device is a 43-inch full HD Trilluminous panel with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

The main USP and the feature that makes this product the best-LED TV in India under Rs.50,000 is obviously the Trilluminous display.

If we compare this display which can show up to hundred shades of a specific colour, the Trilluminous display can show up to thousand shades of the same.

This increases the colour accuracy of the TV that beats the competitor display by leaps and bounds.

The screen is very bright with accurate colours, thanks to the X-Reality Pro engine.

This panel has a colour gamut of about 96% which is impressive in this price point.

The native refresh rate of this display is 50Hz but Sony’s motion flow technology enhances it to about 200Hz.

Refresh rate is the number of times the display refreshes in a second. The higher the number of refresh rate, the better the TV will be. With increased refresh rate, the fast moving frames will look more smooth and enjoyable.

In terms of pure display quality, we would choose this model over any other competitors on this list to be the best-LED TV priced under Rs.50,000 in India.

Smart features

Apart from the display quality, Sony touts this TV as an internet TV.

It has 12 pre-installed apps including Netflix, YouTube as well as photo sharing apps like 500px.

There are dedicated Netflix and YouTube buttons on the remote which can be used for one-touch access to these services.

Connectivity

Sony hasn’t skimped on the number of ports on this device.

There are 2 HDMI ports for connecting devices like Blu-R ay players, set-top boxes etc and 2 USB ports.

There is an RJ 45 port for wired connectivity along with WiFi.

There are two 5 W speakers on this device.

The letdowns..

The display panel is a semi-gloss one which reflects a lot of light off the screen.

So when placed under bright lights, there might be blind spots on the screen and this may hamper the viewing experience.

Final thoughts..

We think the Sony KLV-43W662F is irreplaceable when it comes to the natural colors and excellent contrast ratio that the Trilluminous panel inside this TV.

With the 200Hz interpolated refresh rate, action scenes and sports seem so much smooth and additive to watch.

Best LED TV under 50000 : Buying guides
You’re clearly confused about your next TV purchase and need a piece of advice, right?

Well, we have it.

Take a deep breath and go through the article.

We will make you understand the basics and guide you through the jargon like a breeze.

Let’s look at the factors that you need to consider while buying a LED TV under Rs.50,000.

1. Price

Half a lakh is definitely not a bad choice.

Spending such an amount means you are serious and interested in spending some quality time in front of the TV.

For Rs.50,000, you’re going to get some best in class features and a stunning display to look at.

2. Display

First things first. No OLED panels.

Yes, you’ve heard it right.

OLED panels are so damn expensive to manufacture.

OEM’s still don’t find it profitable to include one in this price bracket.

So all you have to cherish is a good LED panel with edge lighting. And a pretty good one at it.

3. Resolution & Screen size

This is a tricky part. Resolution and screen size is interdependent.

You should only choose a 4K screen if you are aiming for a larger display.

Otherwise, a full HD display would suffice.

However, choosing a display size of minimum 43-inch is better, if you ask us.

There are TVs available up to a display size of 55-inch with 4K resolution.

Models like 43-inch LG 43UJ632T 4K TV priced at Rs.52,750 is a good choice having a perfect resolution with suitable screen real estate.

4. Contrast ratio

More the contrast ratio, better will be the overall brightness of the display.

Most of the LED TVs priced under Rs.50,000 comes with a respectable contrast ratio upwards of 100000:1 stretching even up to a staggering 600000:1.

5. Refresh rate

Many people who buy a LED TV for a budget of Rs.40,000 and above double it up as a secondary gaming monitor.

Leaving the resolution/display size aside, the most important factor for a gaming monitor is its refresh rate.

Serious gamers hate to see dropped frames in between.

Most of the LED TVs priced under Rs.50,000 comes with the standard 60Hz refresh rate.

Models like Sony KLV 43W772E and Samsung 43K5300 comes with interpolated refresh rates of 200Hz and 100Hz respectively.

6. High Dynamic Range

HDR support is important if you are the one who loves to watch native 4K content on the TV in its full glory.

Many games are also launching with the HDR capability which will increase the overall immersive experience.

Models like the Mi Smart TV 4 and LG 43UJ632T priced at Rs.44,999 and Rs. 52,750 respectively comes with HDR support.

7. Connectivity

At a budget of just under Rs.50,000 Smart TV is the way to go.

No matter if you’re interested in it or not, just go for it.

No one knows what future has in store for you.

Most of the LED TVs come with a minimum of 2 HDMI ports and 2 USB ports.

The Vu LEDN50K310X3D, a 50-inch 4K LED TV priced at Rs. 44,999 comes with 4 HDMI ports and 3 USB ports.

Wi-FI connectivity is a standard feature in all models.

Bluetooth is one added functionality that you must decide whether to have or not.

8. Speakers

You’re already spending close to Rs.50,000 because you absolutely enjoy having stunning visuals.

To have a completely immersive viewing experience, we would recommend you to invest in a decent home theater or speakers.

The speakers that come with these TVs are not up to the mark.
