AF­FORD­ABLE LUX­URY

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - REVIEWS -

Let us be prac­ti­cal, not all peo­ple can af­ford a high-end LED tele­vi­sion. That does not mean you can­not af­ford an LED. Take the AOC 21-inch (54.6cm) Full HD LED TV, for in­stance. It looks like a com­puter mon­i­tor and is thank­fully priced like one too. This is no gi­ant screen, for 21 inches is still good enough for small house­holds on a bud­get.

This TV is ul­tra slim with the ports on the left side and the con­trols on the right. The re­mote is full-fea­ture and there are sep­a­rate source but­tons for HDMI, USB and so on—hard to find even in top-end TVs. There are no smart fea­tures here, but there is USB movie and loads of con­nec­tiv­ity op­tions, in­clud­ing one with a PC. The pic­ture and au­dio con­trols let you cus­tomise the pic­ture, which we found a bit too heavy on the colour on SD sig­nals. In HD, the pic­ture is crisp and clear. But make sure your TV is set up at a height not much above or be­low the line of sight as the ver­ti­cal view­ing an­gles are quite nar­row.

The me­dia player is easy to use and reads pic­tures, video and mu­sic files with ease. There is not much de­lay in get­ting even large files started and the ar­row keys let you fast-for­ward and rewind. There are ded­i­cated me­dia but­tons be­low to play/pause and skip to an­other file. The au­dio is loud and clear, good enough for the screen size. Ex­tras in­clude zoom and sleep but­tons.

So if you are look­ing for a small­ish LED TV for your home, of­fice or shop, AOC seems like a de­cent op­tion.
