  • PROS
  • Videocon Directly Digital Broadcasting ready or in-built set top box.
  • Free to record digital content onto a physical drive
  • CONS
  • Even with Soen Sound speakers, sound isn't good enough.
  • Remote cannot access TV's settings menu when display source is other than the internal set-top box.

Verdict

An undeniable positive of this set is just one remote to control TV and built-in Videocon D2H connection. So to access settings with other set top boxes you have to use the hardware buttons. At Rs. 40,000 this is an average performing television, with some interesting features.

Videocon DDB VMA40FH17XAH TV detailed review

The Liquid Luminous Technology claims to offer more natural colours, a system that reproduces 95 percent of what the eye can actually see. It has non-traditional tri-colored phosphorus LED which increases the colour reproduction range. Visual quality is good, nothing extraordinary, though. The Videocon TV is equipped with Videocon Directly Digital Broadcasting (DDB) technology, which translates to a set top box built inside into the TV. You just need to plug in the RF (antenna) and power cable, voila you are ready to watch your favourite show.


Display brightness is also around 417.16 nits against the claimed 450 nits. The display has a built-in blue filter to reduce the strain on human eye which actually works. The audio is not so good despite the built-in Soen Sound speakers. If you don’t want to miss out on your favorite show, then you can record it via Digital Video Recorder (DVR/PVR) provided. Just plug in a spare hard disk or pen drive in the DVR port and you’re good to go. But recorded content is locked to the TV. 

An undeniable positive of this set is just one remote to control TV and built-in Videocon D2H connection. So to access settings with other set top boxes you have to use the hardware buttons. At Rs. 40,000 this is an average performing television, with some interesting features. Other options to consider are LG 32LF560T and VU LED43D6535.
