    1. Budget - 25k
    2. Display type and size - 32 or 40 inch
    3. Primary use of Tv/monitor - watching Prime Video, Netflix, Hotstar TV (mostly football), Occasional use of laptop, Movies from USB (rules out Sanyo just for this.
    4. Ports Required - Minimum 2 HDMI
    5. Preferred choice of brand - Open to all
    6. Any TV/monitor in consideration - BPL 40 inch with Firestick, VU 39 inch with Firestick or LG 32inch Smart
    7. Any other info that you want to share. - TV will be in a 10 x 10 ft room and the viewing distance will be 5-7 feet.

    I have zeroed in on BPL (22k + 4k) , VU (20.5k after 10% discount +4k) & LG (25k) but can't able to decide which one to go for.

    My Pros & Cons:

    BPL:

    Pros - 40 inch, Trusted Brand, Amazon Service, Free installation with wall mount.
    Cons: Not displayed in any showroom to see the demo & clarity, No IPS display, Poor sound. ( Have a Logitech z623 to connect so not a big issue)

    VU:

    Pros - 39 inch, IPS Display, Free installation with wall mount.
    Cons: Not sure of the brand and it's after sale service. Not displayed in any showroom to see the demo & clarity, Flipkart Service.

    LG with webos3.0 :

    Pros - Smart Tv, Wireless Display (WiDi), Supports all the apps i need like Netflix, Prime Video, Hotstar. Reputed Brand, Can have a demo at local store.

    Cons - 32 inch , and cant think of any.


    Please help me decide and let me know if the infos i mentioned above are wrong.

    Buying a smart TV is a bad choice if you are on a low budget. A non-smart TV with Chromecast or Firestick does almost the same at a very lower price.

    Display is nice! perfectly fine.
    Sound is below average. But no complaints when on cable TV.
    Playing anything on USB/miBox has LOUD music and explosions, and barely audible dialogues. But this is the problem about almost ALL tv's IMHO

    Videocon used to import/manufacture panels for Philips LED TVs a few years back & I have found their picture quality to be good enough for the price in 2014.If one wants to get a cheap LED TV which is available in tv showrooms for demo then videocon is the only option.I don't trust any brand which I can not demo & don't recommend to buy a TV based purely on online reviews.
