dont go in for samsung, terrible service and higher failure rate.
I have both Samsungs and Sonys.
Sony is a more reliable brand and is zero maintenance usually.
Ive used Sony after sales once and they were very polite and replaced a part even though I was a few days out of warranty
With Samsung, all my Samsungs have some problem or another and the technicians are usually clueless and quite rude, Ive stopped buying Samsung products for the same reason .
Since you dont need Smart Tv, Sony is a no brainer imho
I have this one-
SONY BRAVIA KLV-40W562D FULL HD SMART LED TV: Amazon.in: Electronic
bought it a while back for my dads office.No niggles whatsoever

Thanks kkn13..that confirms SONY is the best and I was bent on SONY since my wife was pitching for it from beginning..but I dont need SMART TV..which model can I go for..Also does SONY can play downloaded movies from net like .mkv format or .avi format ?

Will Gaffar market in Delhi be a good place to buy this TV (They give bills for imported TVs for an extra 3k) ..
Also I heard TVs in Delhi shops are cheaper than Gurgaon because of tax..please advise

Its tough to say what formats a TV can play
I have 3 Sonys and all play different formats
.mp4 is the most common and will play
.avi is unlikely but its still possible on some models for some reason, small chance
.mkv may or may not play

I wouldnt depend on the TV USB port for playback though, all TVs have half baked functionality but no harm in trying , maybe you can take a movie on a pendrive and try it on a demo unit in a store first

For playing Movies, I suggest getting a WDTV box or Raspberry Pi 3 or an intel compute stick
I think Raspberry Pi 3 is the best option
just use Kodi with Pi3 and a Class 10 sd card with a 2A power supply and youll be set (around 4k totally but miles better than Smart TV or Non-Smart TV Media playback)
WD TV is also good but its tough to buy and a bit pricey if you find one
I got my WD TV for 4.5k from Dubai

As for where to buy, Im not familiar with Delhi but you should check out prices everywhere(call and ask some shops) and availability, then take the final call
