Better Than Sony, Samsung, LG In This Price Range.
by Abhishek on 2014-10-24
I bought this TV from Vijay Sales at 28000. I am going to directly write its pros and cons without wasting much time.
1. Full HD resolution (1920x1080). I didn't find any Full HD from Sony, LG, Samsung at 28000. Most dealers selling 32 inch HD ready Sony R422B 2014 model which is a waste of money because it is HD ready and 32 inch. So its Better than Sony, Samsung and LG in its price range.
2. Plays all video formats like MP4, AVI, MKV etc. Full HD 1080p videos are playable with awesome clarity. Plays videos recorded from my phone in MP4 format via USB drive.
3. Has all necessary ports like HDMI, VGA, AV etc. Audio out is present for Home Theatre speakers.
4. Can be used as a PC monitor either via VGA with PC audio jack or HDMI. Played call of duty series on this TV and graphics are mind blowing. Games played are COD MW 1,2,3 and Black OPS. Game clarity depends on your GPU resolution.
5. No need to buy HD set top box. I am using airtel SD box and clarity is good on it. Picture is clear and I didn't find any reason to upgrade to HD box.
6. UI is good and easy.
7. Got 5 years warranty with this TV and videocon customer service is good. After calling to customer care, I got call from installation department within 2 hours. And you get extended warranty after telling the serial number to customer care, they will send you a warranty card via courier within 10 days.
1. You have to invest 3000 rupees extra in voltage stabilizer to protect it from power surges, but company doesn't say that it is compulsory. Its your decision whether you want to buy it or not. If voltage doesn't fluctuates and their is proper earthing in your home then no need to buy stabilizer.
2. Separately purchase wall mounting bracket if you want to install it on wall because with default wall mounts we cannot put our hands on back of tv. Wall mount bracket cost only 500 rupees. I prefer table top position as it keeps the tv cool and its air vents are not blocked.
Verdict: Overall this a good product at 28000 40" FHD TV. SAMSUNG, LG ,SONY cost more than 40000 for 40 inch FHD TV. Be an Indian buy Indian products.
Be Indian, Buy Indian. The TV just works fine like any other imported TV

I owned a Samsung 40 inches 5 series LED TV before this. I bought that TV in Oct. 2011 and around Feb 2104 the TV's panel got black patch. I tried to contact Samsung etc. who then told me that panel is gone and it will cost a whooping 25000 to replace the panel.
I waited for 3-4 months thinking whether to get plane replaced or get a new TV, but later I decided that I would go for a new TV as it would give me warranty as Samsung was only offering 3 month warranty on the panel replacement, so I decided to go for new TV.
Fortunately after doing survey in market everyone was pushing me towards Samsung or LG but the prices of those TV's were still high. I then went to Croma and they had these Philips brand and Videocon also with Samsung / LG, so after checking a lot I decided that I would go with Philips 40PFL4958 model which had the maximum warranty of 3 years. That TV was being offered for 38500 to me but I decided to check online and got a price quote of Rs. 32500.
I decided to wait for Diwali and then Flipkart's Billion sale came and I managed to get the same TV for Rs. 27990 but as it happened with everyone else, Flipkart cancelled my order and price of the TV went back to Rs. 35000 on Flipkart. I did'nt knew what to do and then Flipkart emailed me that they will get me same or better TV, but they did'nt and finally they offered me Rs. 9000 as wallet cash as apology (I wonder if any shopkeeper would have done this).
Anyways, the price of Philips TV was now Rs. 35000 and I had Rs. 9000 in my Flipkart wallet so I was kind of stuck with Flipkart to buy my TV and I then again started looking for something else. I kept on checking and checking and finally I zeroed in on the Videocon 50 inch. LED TV. I went to Croma again and checked the TV, the rep. at Croma boasted the warranty which Videocon also increased to 5 years. He said a company only offers warranty when they have confidence in their product. Thats is, I decided to order the TV from Flipkart.
The additional benefits I got by ordering from Flipkart was that they picked my old TV in exchange for Rs. 10000 (For which no shopkeeper was giving more than 5000). They offered extra 5% discount on the price of Rs. 49900. Extended warranty and Cashback of Interest component. So eventually I got this 50 inch LED for almost half the price than mentioned. I don't think this deal could get any better than this.
The ordering process was simple, It was very quick of Flipkart to deliver the TV and old TV was also picked at the same time. The Videocon was fully sealed and somehow Flipkart even managed to deliver the TV to me on Sunday (which is great). And on the next day, Videocon's rep was at my door to install the TV and within an hour the TV was mounted and everything was done. Everything was included in box like Table top, Wall mount etc.
Now about the TV, its huge :). Works better than my old Samsung 40 inch. LED. Somehow the Samsung was slower when I used to flip channels and Videocon is faster. I don't know why but Videocon TV switches between different screen resolutions much quicker than the old Samsung TV. As some people have said in the reviews the sound is low, I don't find it so. It works almost same as my Samsung maybe a 28-30 difference but nothing major.
The clarity is good, I don't feel that it is any lower than any of the samsung or LG. I have noticed that when you compare TV's in a shop side by side then some look brighter, some darker, some sharper but when you get the TV at your home and start looking it for a while then you feel that all are same. There is so less difference that eventually you will not even know the difference. Hence I am satisfied with the picture quality of the TV and I don't see much difference in what I used to see in my Samsung or what I see now in the Videocon.
Final words: Its an Indian brand and it just works. Offers better warranty at very lower price. What else do you want ? Also you're helping your country when you're buying from an Indian mfg.

Value for money TV, especially with the 3 year warranty at stores
by Nimish Gupta on 2014-08-11
I ended up buying the TV from a physical store, as Flipkart does not offer the 3 year warranty on this TV (which physical stores do - available as an "Extended Warranty" card from Videocon stocked by the physical store). The TV itself is the standard product at this price range, with 2 HDMI ports and a single USB port. The USB port was able to play the latest formats including 1080p content without any issues. The picture quality is fine, I had to increase the color from 55 (default) to about 70 to make it match the picture of the Samsung TV this one replaced. The one big complaint I have about this TV is the sound quality - it's pathetic, very hollow sounding and the volume itself is exceedingly low when playing back from USB. Other than that one drawback (resolved by hooking up the TV to the home theater system we already had), I'd recommend this TV to anyone looking for a large screen (50") at a value price.
Edit - adding this section on 27-Jan-2015
We've had the TV now for a couple of months, and are still delighted with the picture quality. It's awesome, and the sound is excellent when there's a 2 channel sound feed (like from the Tata Sky HD box).
The problem with sound is when there's a 5.1 channel sound feed (typically from a downloaded high resolution movie). The other problem with the TV is that the subtitles are small, and the software does not allow the subtitles size to be increased or color changed.
The USB port still manages to play all video formats thrown at it - so full marks to Videocon on that front. That being said, with the Micromax 50B5000FHD 126 cm (50) LED TV available at 15K cheaper (but with only 1 year warranty), Videocon might no longer be the best option if you're looking for a "Value for Money" deal...
Videocon (MADE IN INDIA) VKC50 Inch LED - Theatre experience
by Kusum Khanna on 2015-02-11
Writing this review after using the V-LED for the past 2 weeks.
Was very skeptical about buying this LED at first due to the brand and its quality. Visited many local shops – Vijay sales, Reliance, Kapila, Better deals, Sargam etc. which have not criticized the TV since all looks same at this 50 inch size because all are 1080 FHD. The little difference seems to be on the looks, some has given steel edges to give their product a premium look but for a hefty price difference of Rs. 20000. The bluerays worked the same for all the brands, if we watch it from a proper distance.
After all market research, we put and an order on 22 January 2015 at flipkart because of HDFC and exchange offer, since local dealers were not providing any of the offers. When we received it, its carton indeed seemed to be very large, however, have gotten so used to it after putting on the wall on the same day and now seems good watching from a distance of 12-15 feet.
V-care / Flipkart provided us the next day service for un-boxing and putting it on the wallmount. The three years warranty / AMC was also completed by Videocon on the same day and computerized AMC numbers for three years provided to us. The additional two years AMC would cost around 15K bucks and it was provided free of cost. Its great.
The LED price is good (VALUE FOR MONEY) and brand support is EXCELLENT (in bold). The build quality is excellent and edges are same as of Samsung, LG etc. The display is nothing short of fantastic & watching a 1080p movie is an incredible experience with the dual speakers.
Bottom line – The Videocon VKC50 LED TV is simply exceptional and looking at the specs the fact that it’s a Videocon (MADE IN INDIA), I didn't find it too hard to justify the price to the better half. One should go for it if you're looking for this type LED at approx. 40K price and extended warranty as a BONUS. DEFINITELY go for it if you want to theatre experience at your home.
Good Buy, Perfect value for money

I bought this Videocon 40 Inch Full HD LED TV for 28,000 from flipkart(After having applied banker offer of 15% discount). I ordered it on sunday 3pm and flipkart delivered it to home on next monday 9:30 AM. Wow what a fast delivery it is!.
Flipkart itself raised a service request for installation , Videocon installation team came after 30 hours from TV delivery for installation which is free of charge.
TV picture quality and sound quality both are good. If you attach external speakers then it will be further nice as all flat TVs have inbuilt problem of sound. I'm very happy for having bought this TV. I saved at least 23,000Rs as compared to bigger brand like Samsung.
All these electronic items go absolete in every 6 months as still more TVs to come such as, ultra slim, Ultra HD, smart TV and curved TV. With this speed in the revolution my plan was to spend very less money and get bigger TV and flipkart helped me.
Thanks flipkart for amazing speed in delivery.
best at this price with warranty

I had Sony bravia smart led 3D TV of 40" I did not found the use of smartness and the 3d of a TV. I wanted to buy another TV for my parents now I decided to spent on big panel rather than extra useless features. in 50" you will rarely found a big brand TV with out useless features. I went to a local showroom and found two best TV with great clarity (HD CONTENT) one was Videocon and another was onida I choose Videocon because it was slimmer and having 5 year complete warranty. I HAD A LITTLE ISSUE ABOUT THIS BRAND BUT THINKING ABOUT MAKE IN INDIA CAMPAIN OF OUR HON! PRIMINISTER I THOUGHT MAKE IN INDIA CAMPAIN WOULD BE SUCCESSFULL WHEN INDIAN BUYER WILL TRUST OUR INDEGENOUS BRANDS.
NOW THINK WHAT MORE A COMPANY CAN DO TO SELL HIS PRODUCT.
I BOUGHT THIS TV FROM A LOCAL STORE IN 49000 RS AS FLIPKART WAS NOT DELIVERING THIS PRODUCT AT AGRA
Very happy with the services

This is the best deal if you are looking for a 40inch TV. I ordered it on 9th Sept and on 12th morning I had it installed. Super service by Flipkart. The customer care guys are helpful (as after every call, you are directed to a feedback call).
About TV, except the audio which is not at all digital, the deal is worth. I had my home theater which I have connected to it and its simply awesome. Picture quality is also good. Guys, if you are looking for a 40' LED in 30k budget, this is the best deal.. go for it. Thanks,
Great VFM, Superb picture quality and equally bad sound quality
by Sushant Raut on 2014-08-04
I bought this for Rs.28500 with some freebies...
1. Superb Picture Quality, Equally good to top brands. Good Sharpness
3. 3 Years Warranty
4. Value For Money
5. 1080P Video Playback from USB. Most Formats are Supported.
6. VGA/PC Port and Composite in and out
7. SD Up scaling quality is good
8. Fast UI and easy navigation
9. Fast reading from USB
1. Really bad sound quality.
2. No Headphone Jack output. I am figuring out how to connect amplifier to this TV as there is no headphone jack. If somebody has tried to connect using composite audio out then please let me know, if it is working. I have not tried that as of now.
Initially I was about to purchase Toshiba/Samsung TV, but when in store saw this TV, really stunned by picture quality. So I decided Sound quality can be enhanced but there is no alternative to picture quality so bought this TV. But now figuring out how to connect to home theater, hope it works with Composite Out and hope it has HD ARC (Audio Return Channel). Will update once I try out this,
Giving 4 star due to bad sound quality and no headphone jack.
Best TV in its price range and Good quality
by Vijayendra Chaturvedi on 2014-11-18
I have been plannign to buy a 50 inch tv for quite some time and was looking at VU but it went out of stcok everywhere and then zeroed in on this tv after visiting several physical stores. I found this TV only at one retailer and was impressed with the quality. No one except Flipkart was giving 10k for my existing LCD tv hence went with Flipkart. Bought the TV on 8 Nov and got it on 10 Nov as promised. Amazing Flipkart delivery as the delivery happened within the sceduled time.Videocon guy came only on Wednesday for the installation after several calls. Have used the TV for 1 week now and hence writing this review.
The TV is sleek and is very good for its price. You need to have a HD connection (which i do) to get the best as a normal SD connection on such a big tv might not look all that great. I read about the sound quality by some users but on my HD connection, i found the sound to be absolutely fine. The sound is a bit low ( as mentioned by someone) when playing through USB but i have a soundbar so no issues there. USB plays pretty much all the standard ovie formats. The TV reads flawlessly from my 500 GB hard disk.
I dont think you can compare this to a Sony Bravi engine and i think it wont be fair also to do that considering the price. I went with the buy India campaign like few others did and i am happy with my choice. I wanted a 50 inch tv for the world cup next year and with an HD connection, i am ready. Its a value for money tv for sure.
