Awesome steal deal for 1080p (Full HD) Smart viewing
by Gaurav W on 2015-11-05
I bought this 40" LEO40FAIN LED TV for Rs. 33,990/- directly from Onida company (after a month long research, both online & offline stores) as it is based in Mumbai and currently Onida offers 2 years additional warranty till Diwali, thus a steal deal. I have been using it since 2 weeks now and below is my experience so far:
- Budget Smart Android TV with 1080p (Full HD) resolution
- Have compared viewing quality with Samsung/LG/Sony & only Sony have bettered by bit rest offers same quality.
- Multiple connecting ports availability including 3 X HDMI and 3 X USB
- TV Sound seems to be far better than LG/Samsung/Sony. Volume is clearly audible in 12 X 10 room size no need for external speakers
- Smart remote is something innovative and appreciated move by Onida, only issue is operating range which I find it difficult to operate beyond 3 meters
- Slim & light chargeable with QWERTY remote gets you wow feel when in hand.
- Thin bezel or as good as no border at all
- Calibrated legs stand and Wall mount bracket (with installation) is free by company. I recommend to go for wall mount as it improves sound quality.
- Can play almost all media file flawlessly including HD videos
- Absolutely no issues faced while connecting to WiFi, if you have router at home
- Full web browser is based on Chrome so it easily accesses all sites you want to, facebook feels awesome on big screen.
- Non HD channels shows vertical blurred lines randomly on screen but is manageable if you adjust Sharpness from display menu
- No placeholder for remote charging near TV, so have to be careful it does not drop on floor during charging. Once fully charged it can last for almost 8-10 days.
- Cannot expand internal memory through Micro SD card
- Need high speed internet connection to play YouTube to avoid buffering
- Onida demo guy does not explains all features of TV and answers to your query, so its better you do some homework and create a list of your query before installation is scheduled.
In nutshell, it’s still a steal deal for Full HD Smart TV lovers. I would recommend it to my friends & relatives.

The product is awesome..
I am using it for the past 3 months...It works Just fine as mentioned....
only bad thing is u can't play YouTube **purchased** movies on this TV, so u need to mirror it from ur smartphone to play...something wrong with this section...maybe they can fix it in next update of Android...
Amazon was great in delivery as usual but the product is average

Amazon was great in delivery as usual but the product is average. Picture quality is just ok, in the name if smart TV you have compatibility issues for hooking up even your samsung phone. The So called air mouse [the smart remote] is horrible. some of its functions stopped working & the mouse is not covered under warranty. Replacement costs a whopping 3800/-. Service support has been awful. Right from installation to mouse...... we had tough time.... on the whole A BIG NO............
by Amazon Customer on 2015-11-11
Product OK....almost all features are available...
But WiFi (network) is too slow..no bluethoot ...... Disk Space less!!
And a big problem.. the screen got spoiled, the dark colors on tv are seen as RED color which looks very bad... Mostly it's a shipping mistake.

Onida come back with bang,excellent clarity, super speed and reliable, with all latest android version,it is same to like smart phone only screen is different.and also very Quick service and installation from ONIDA CARE, after calling approach you within 10 hours.remote is very slim and charge with any smart phone charger.and important thing is reasonable price of TV.if you go to another brand same future TV we will cost extra 15 to 20 thousand rupees. I am very very satisfied about this product.
Bang for your bucks :-)

I hardly review products that I buy online but trust me I am amazed with this product ,I have been using this smart tv from past 1 week even though I brought this from other website , the performance of this TV made me to write a review
Firstly let me tell you one thing ONIDA had made huge impact with their products before and trust me it hasn't failed now ,I belive they have procured best electronic parts for this machine.
Now discussing about pros and cons
Excellent display and exceptional depth in blacks which gives very good picture quality even in SD channels (am using airtel HD+ connection)
Very good reduction in dots /noise over picture that is even not HD
Smart remote with air cursor and smart charging technology ( battery free remote)
Good responsive android operating system (even though it's smooth over large extent of my operation ,would it be great with 2gigs ram)
Bang for your bucks you would never disappoint after buying this one.
Like every electronic device even this has some cons
1. Build quality is okay but not impressive
2. Sound quality is okay but could have been much better
3. Lack of customizations/ animations when operating remote or while opening any apps .
4. Lack of good customer care/ service from onida.
5. Refresh rate is just 60hz so you might have to compromise on fast moving objects in the frame .
Having said that this display panel is one of the best under 50k price range from any company and this is almost their with bravia engine but is equal to some full hd panels made by lg or Samsung under 60k range .. Play any full HD content by going to near by offline store and compare with other company panels out there and get amazed with this TV.
Although some might argue that one can get 4k TV from MMX brand but the 4k panel from MMX is just not great as it is just a number game from MMX but to some extent I agree that refresh rate is good in MMX 4k model (100-120hz) which makes fast moving picture crisp and smooth so that one cannot miss that action.for megood display matters more than some make up 4k display which looks so artificial and make u think twice of what you see on that screen.
Finally I recommend this TV for its value for money proportion and for good quality as well.
superb picture quality .... Junk remote control(WITH SOLUTION)
by DaddyCool on 2015-10-20
Totally worth the money considering that others are selling inferior things at 50000 rupees. You can go to any store in the market and see tvs from 40 to 70 k all with similar picture quality..... this is way cheaper and far better.
This has a remote with a keyboard(really wow) and the remote charges through a usb cable from the tv itself....they could have given a place to keep the remote in place when it is charging.....also a rolling button like a blackberry would have made this a lot more easier....all said it is the best tv you can buy for this money and a very advanced one too... GO FOR IT.
A few days after using it, the remote can not pair with the TV and OK botton on it not working, amazon/ seller are ready to replace entire unit....I still think it is a great tv for the money.....
some more days gone by....no contact from the customer support.....the remote control of the tv is not pairing/ ok button not working...
After some more days....
Even after my repeated requests to amazon...no one from onida contacted me...or visited me for the demo...
The tv is working fine...I have a DEN cable connection now and it works well...not using too much of the smart functionality (not really smart to do that...)...well the service on this one is BAD....Nobody has come to check the remote control...no one came for demo...
The remote control is ok but required me to learn on my own, that you cant be too fast with it and you cant press too many buttons too quickly....the pairing occurs only when you press volume+ and volume- together, stand very close to it and once it is paired, the green light stops flickering...now you can type but be slow....
6 MOTHS AND THE REMOTE IS JUNK...I HAVE THROWN IT...
YOU WILL THANK ME FOR THIS SOLUTION: THE WIRED MOUSE WORKS LIKE A CHARM WITH THE TV...I had initially thought of buying a Logitech harmony remote or another remote with airmouse but that wont be necessary...attach you mouse and throw the remote. solved.

Compare to other brand it gives all the android feature which is require....and most important that IT IS INDIAN BRAND OF TV...indian brand things is always low cost and good performance...
channel up and down is worst. if one time press it skipped 4 to ...
by Manikandan on 2016-01-07
Remote is the Main Problem.. every to going to menu and change in settings. No shortcuts. remote is working with the 2 feet distance perfectly. in HDMI2 - HDMI CEC and ARC (Audio Return Channel) available. But if i On it that setting not saving permanently. If turn of the TV this setting also goes to OFF mode. Each time we need to go to setting and Turn it on. In cable tv, channel up and down is worst. if one time press it skipped 4 to 5 channels.

I have used it for around 8 months and can safely say that I am very pleased by my choice. I was veri sceptical in choosing Onida but they have done remarkable job. This is not just another smart TV which hangs in every thing. It is proper android TV, having good interface, Superb remote(which doubles as pointer), good picture quality and very smooth working. The only issue is it takes lot of time in booting but I guess that is the price you have to pay for a smart TV. Inbuilt speakers are OK nothing to boast about. I use my 5.1 so that works nice for me. Best art of this TV is its remote and good interface. it never gets stuck. I have never used MHL so cant comment on that and screen mirroring also sucks, but never really felt the need of it. Overall it is a superb product from ONIDA which should have got more marketing.
