Great Price, Excellent features & performance @ LED 40 Inch full HD TV by Micromax, delivered by Flipkart:
by Santosh George on 2014-11-29
User Review of Micromax 40T2810FHD 101 cm (40) LED TV, (Full HD), brought from Flipkart in November 2014.
I brought Micromax 40 inch LED TV from Flipkart around 3 weeks back. I was able to exchange our old CRT TV 29 inch in working condition (Philips brand) for Rs.2,000.
Flipkart arranged TV delivery before time, product was well packed, well handled in a Big Van. Once I placed my request for TV installation, Flipkart arranged Sunil Kumar for the TV Installation at our Bangalore South West location within 2 days’ time. I was satisfied & very impressed with the job done during TV installation and demo process. Sunil was able to handle all my questions and was patient enough to explain in detail. I must have asked around 20 questions & I was satisfied & impressed in the whole process.
I had checked this TV’s performance at retail outlets, prior to making a decision. I found the visual, audio performance of this LED 40 inch TV at par or better than top 5 well established brands. Pricing is just right for a common man in India, the made in India tag makes it better and makes me proud too.
I would suggest following under User mode for best results:
Backlight 80, Contrast 65, Brightness 45, Colour 40, Sharpness 25.
Colour depth, contrast, & brightness are adjusted under user mode for best results. Volume levels are more than desired, well balanced, clear and loud. If you have a home theatre then you can plug audio output and enjoy 2.1 or 5.1 or 7.1 speakers. You can give PC/laptop output to TV via 2 HDMI or AUX. I have not yet checked the DVD output. TV feels light on hands when you lift it.
Suggestion to manufacturer, if the back/rear side audio, video buttons/plugs can be moved to left or right side closer to tv frame, so that it will make it easier to plug or unplug cables.
TV frame is elegant with a 2 cms of steel frame at bottom, overall good looking n smart feel, tv remote feels light in hand and works smoothly. I am using HD STB box from dish TV. HD channels like Discovery HD, National Geo HD, TLD HD, Colours, History, Star Sports HD1, HD2, Sony Sports HD, TEN etc... comes alive in true colour and great details…real Full HD. It feels like you’re watching movies or sports in a real arena/stadium.
Suggested TV viewing distance is 8 feet and behind…
The other non HD channels look average if viewed from a distance but if you move closer to the screen .. say 2-3 feet you will feel it looks very blurred. This problem does not persist in the HD channels though, but you won’t get a better TV in this price range.
Overall thumbs up...definitely recommendable and great product by Micromax and delivered by Flipkart. You can take a decision with full confidence & eyes closed to buy this product.
Don't take away the exchanged product before installing the new one
by Rahul Chowdhury on 2015-02-23
Don’t maintain a customer care to say - I am sorry for the inconvenience
- I have recently ordered Micromax 40T2820FHD 101 cm (40) LED TV from flipkart which get delivered on 14 the fed as expected but installation never done.
1. Installation need to get done at heart of Kolkata (One of the Major city of India)
2. Have dropped mail on it [Ref id : 150221-047660]
3. Called customer care [Ref id : 37407097] – 90 % of the calling time they say I am sorry for the inconvenience rather trying to resolve the issue and get work around
4. No communication done from their end till I ask for something.
My point - why you sell a product when you don’t have that proper support. Come to US. Look at Amazon. Even with USPS delivery service they are better than you. Please avoid such situation where you have nothing to say rather “I am sorry for the inconvenience”.
It was a gift to my family for world cup.I have exchanged my old TV
Have you ever think not to take away the exchanged product before installing the new one. I think you are more busy with revenue and marketing and hard to have time to think the very basic things.
If there is any blocking to post it in flipkart site I will post it on social media with all hash tags and help others to open their eyes.
My Review as a Techie (critic review
by Hitesh on 2014-11-13
Here is the review after using it for some days. (I will keep updating this as time passes to keep you guys informed, if flipkart allows )
First the goods:
1: Picture quality is quite good, almost at par with Samsung, LG.
(have to keep the brightness on a bit higher side, for better results)
2: Runs all files, which I have tried. (I mean all formats of movies), if someone is not able to play any type of format, most probably he is missing something in terms of settings.
3: Sound is ok on higher volumes.
Now not so good things:
1: The sound is just ok, good, ,, but not too high when playing movies from pen drive/hdd, (Can't hear the dialogs of some movies properly) so may need to attach external speakers for loud sound. (But this issue is with many LED TV's, even with Samsung)
Now the thing which Micromax really needs to improve upon to get going and to zoom: (I mean the bad things)
1: The quality of remote is not good.The buttons are not up to the mark.
2: There software is not good enough :
i: The subtitles are very small in font. We get to stain eyes reading them. (and we get to read them, because the volume is not up to the mark)
There is no option of increasing font size of subtitles. (My 4-5 years old Samsung LCD TV has this option)
ii: No option to change the position of subtitles.
iii: No option of changing the timing of the subtitles (my old Samsung LCD has that)
iv: There are some other small software issues I found within 2-3 days, but that can be managed.
I have asked the customer care of Micromax, for the font issue. I had very less hope.
And I was right, they don't even understand what I am talking about.
So unless someone technical or from software updation team, from the company, knows the issue, something may be done.
There technician also came, but he also had no clue about it.
I request Flipkart to work with micromax to resolve my issues.
Also I am planning to buy a 5.1 ch speakers or a sound bar to attach with it. (weighing the prons and cons options for both).
I will keep updating here, as it progresses. Suggestions and questions are welcome.
Worst Support by flipkart
by sandeep kanchan on 2015-02-04
Got this TV a week back and i am still not able to use it.They was a defect in this tv so asked for a replacement.Since then i have not update from flipkart.Just keep getting mails stating "Issue will be resolved withing this date" and when the date nears again get a mails saying the same with another date.Basically they keep extending the date and dont solve the issue.biggest disadvantage of buying product on flipkart no one takes Ownership to resolve customer issue.You are just dependent on emails that makes no sense.
Rating for the TV 5 star
Rating for flipkart support 0 star.
I had a tough time uploading my reviews also.Guess flipkart have some kind of an algoritham in the backend to prevent customers from uploading bad reviews.I am Trying to submit this for the 3rd time

good TV on its range,
nice display to see,
i will recommend to buy this product,
only thing that i did not understand wt is difference between model no: 40T2810FHD and 40T2820FHD
by Nilanjan Choudhury on 2014-10-17
I purchased this TV last week from a local showroom. I wanted to see the picture/sound quality and then buy.
Picture: very good. You require the HD set top box for best results. Picture quality is cool.
Sound: Even though i saw some bad reviews, I found the sound output quite good, better than Videocon or LG (32") in the showroom.
Build quality: Build quality is good and the design is also quite OK.
I have some doubt about the service part, as they have tie up with Panasonic in this area for service support.
Asked many dealers nearby, and they say they have not received even a single compliant for Micromax LEDs and people even went for repeat purchase.
Overall, Great VFM...shall keep posting
Installation service is very worst
by Shailesh Parab on 2015-01-13
I have received this item on 4th Jan'15 till now installation is pending ,, ur customer care guys just promising to wait one more day & its more than one week now .. any prompt action can u take
by jai ganesh on 2014-10-28
Product is delivered on time. Picture quality is good. Television sound is not as expected of good quality but ok. Installation service information and update from flipkart is poor and no proper response. Micromax also does not give much support for Installation as the customer care is always busy and it is not available 24/7. If you plan to buy bigger size tv more than 32 inches and do wall mounting of Tv then you have to do it for your self

RECEIVED A DEFECTIVE MICROMAX LED TV.....FLIPKART YET TO REPLACE IT!!!
I received a brand new 40" micromax led tv, and it gets automatically switched off after every 5 minutes. Requested flipkart to replace it. Request not yet fulfilled.
Not happy...spent 24K...yet received defective tv.
A basic 40'' LED TV at an awesome price.
by S.K on 2014-10-06
Got this just for gaming, works perfect, and it's almost a steal at this price.
Though the sound output is lil low, but hey at this price no complains.
