If you want awesome picture clarity and a TV that lasts long unlike other brands, just go for it !! Sound clarity is very good, however, don’t expect a home theatre-like experience with surround sound and thumping bass. It is adequately loud and clear, which is good enough for most people.
Display, viewing angles and Sound quality is good. But would suggest people to get a good soundbar for good cinematic experience. (always recommended for any TV).
The TV comes with smart features. It has a dedicated YouTube and Netflix button on the remote. It has apps like prime, zee, yup, Eros now, etc. I want to install a Hotstar app but not sure if it is possible.
The only issue is the smart tv interface is too laggy. I guess the RAM is not sufficient enough. Other than that playback happens super smooth which depends on a good wifi connection.
So for a 43″ TV 38k is a bit high considering Chinese competitors like one plus giving at a much cheaper cost. But I paid a premium for a non Chinese company, Sony, which is also a made in India product and I have not qualms about it.
I would like to point out 2 things though:
1. The TV doesn’t support the 5 GHz band. It only supports 2.4 GHz, which MIGHT cause some buffering issues while using the inbuilt OTT apps on TV. However, while testing out apps on TV (2.4 GHz band), I did not have any issues. It might be because my Wifi router (with 300 Mbps speed) is kept right below the TV. However, you can feel the issue of slowness at 2.4 GHz, when you start using the pre-installed browser on TV to open ‘Hotstar’. (Yes, Hotstar doesn’t come with the TV and nor can you install the app).
I am anyways using the Amazon Fire TV stick which supports the 5 GHz band. If you are planning to use one too, you shouldn’t worry at all.
2. It is very difficult to insert USB drives/ HDMI cables once the TV has been wall mounted. Personally, I did not like this, but most people can live with it.
