GOTY 2010 - Entry Level HDTVs

The market has been flooded with Full HD TVs that are now priced pretty competitively. This of course means that the common man can now experience truly great home entertainment without having to feel that deep void in his pockets. So here’s a look at our top 3 entry level HDTVs.

Philips-24PFL5555/V7First Place
Philips has launched this 24 inch LED TV pretty recently and it definitely looks like a winner to me. This TV has features like Full HD, contrast ratio of 200,000:1, USB and two HDMI ports. It also has built-in 10-watt stereo speakers (2 x 5w) and an eco-mode which shows that Philips is doing its bit to save the environment. Priced at Rs. 25,500, this TV is the most expensive of the lot, but quality does come at a price and according to me, the price is right.

And we have a winner!

Mitashi LED TV – First runner up
If you want great colour reproduction and excellent black levels at an affordable price, this is definitely the TV for you. This TV is really slim, looks good and is simple to operate as well, which is what makes it a winner. This TV also has some pretty neat features such as Full HD, USB slot, PC connectivity and an LED backlight. Priced at Rs. 20,990, it’s a pretty good deal for those who are planning to go in for their first flat screen TV.

Great colour reproduction and black levels

Benq-MK2432 Full HDTV – Second runner up
This is actually more like a monitor which has the capabilities of a TV, But has several advantages over TVs that cost the same or even more. It has 1080p playback, 10000:1 contrast ratio and input options like HDMI, DVI and composite S-video etc.
