best 40 inch led tv in india

40 inch televisions are just the right size for modern homes and to this purpose we’ve put together a list of the fifteen best 40 inch (40″) LED TVs for this month available in India. Fifteen, because we were having a hard time deciding on the top 10. The list includes all 40″ LED televisions (they don’t make plasma and LCD anymore) with a minimum screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels (full HD). These include both smart and non-smart TVs from the leading brands in India. Also, not to make things too confusing for you, we’ve only covered models up to Rs 50,000.

Lastly, some new models from Sony and Panasonic have been released with just 10W audio. We decided to skip those.

You can also check the top ten 42-43 inch LED TV in India, top 50 inch LED TV in India, as well as the top LED TV under Rs 25,000 in India. The list covers both smart TVs and non-smart ones. So here goes the list of top 40″ LED televisions for this month.

Suggestions:
If you usually use a TV for only normal TV viewing, 1080p TVs are more than adequate. Given the lack of 4K content, spending the extra money for a resolution that you won’t even use doesn’t make much sense. Also, for a 40 inch TV, 1080p is apt.

In case you do want a 4K TV, go for one with HDR. Now, HDR might not matter on a 1080p TV, but it sure does matter when you’re getting a 4K TV. No, it’s not got anything to do with the resolution, just that buying a 4K TV without HDR doesn’t make sense. If you’re future proofing, why not do it properly? Most of the 4K content supports HDR too.

As for the decision between smart and non-smart TV, we’d say the cheaper smart TVs from domestic brands don’t usually have all the apps you’ll need (no Amazon Prime or Hotstar). In that case, you’d likely buy a Chromecast or Fire TV. So getting the smart TV would be, well, not that good a spend of the extra money. Still, if the difference isn’t too great, you can consider getting the smart version.

Also, look for TVs with HDMI ARC if you plan to plug in a home theater system. Otherwise, you’d be stuck with 2.1 support on an aux cable.

Lastly, the refresh rates are more of a market gimmick. The two rates that are usually standard are 50/60Hz and 100/120Hz. Everything above is generally a lie (sort of).
