There is some awkwardness when you see Micromax written on a screen that is larger than seven inches. Yes, there is a Micromax that is larger than a tablet. Yes, Micromax now has a television.
We were excited to test how this popular Indian phonemaker’s entry into televisions would pan out. And we were not all that disappointed. At least, there is nothing bad about the unit that we test. In fact it is good enough to be recommended to anyone who wants a large screen LED and is not really bothered about getting a big brand home.
The unit on the whole is quite thin and neatly de- signed. It is easy to set up and took us about 20 minutes to unbox and install. As the white Micromax homescreen comes alive, you realise that the 1080p Full HD LED screen is very clear – it is actually a zero dots LED panel. The viewing angles are very good, though we though the bezel could have been thinner. You can play around with the picture with a handful of preset modes. The zoom is also good and gives you multiple options, which can be handy when the broadcast stars to pixellate. The sound is very loud and is again aided by a set of presets. The TV also has a good built-in media player, which can be accessed through
the DMP button on the remote. For video, it gives much more controls than the average nonsmart television models. It can also open picture as well as some types of text files. The TV also accommodates a lot of sources, including three HDMI, two USB and a VGA input. But all this is pretty standard in most television sets these days.
While there are no surprises with this LED TV, it is among the cheapest available in the market for this size. Buy this if you want a good picture and the regular movie player functions. You can get the brains for the television separately.
