LED from India or Abroad ?


Hi Mates !

i am really confused & not able to take a decision on the following -

1. Should i buy from Abroad ? I have people across the globe ( Dubai/Singapore/USA ). So i was thinking to get it from either of these mentioned places. But the problem is -

a. I need screen size 46". Price of 46" is high abroad as well. Even i have to pay for extra weight & customs ( on 35K + amount)
b. No warranty !

So, i need you advice on this, would buying from abroad really worth ?? here is what i am looking for -



Size: 46"


1. Budget. : 40k if buying from abroad. Upto 50k-55k if buying from India

2. Viewing distance : 8-10 feet approx.

3. Input Sources: Media player & 1 TB HDD (1080p movies)

4. Preference for TV: LCD TV/LED-LCD TV/Plasma : only LED

5. Preference for brands : Sony/Samsung/Panasonic/VU/Sharp/LG

6. Willing to purchase it from the grey market? : No.

7. Ambient lighting conditions of the room : Well Lit

8. Any other feature you are looking for such as 3D support on the HDTV, DLNA capabilities etc: 3D a must


Guys please suggest on which model to look for, need to buy asap !

Re: LED from India or Abroad ?

My juju and sister just ordered a 46" Bravia HX729 from TigerDirect, for just 1000$ (+82$ tax).

This too was due to a 500$ discount code. You won't get a 3D LED 240Hz TV for anything near this price in India.

Infact, not even in USA.

You'll only get a 32" on your budget.

His mom was not keeping well. I have tried to contact him but the usual happened. Cannot blame him though. Was stressed out last week with his mother's health. Wait till he sees your message and I hope you're not in a hurry.

US itself. Unfortunately it's very hard to find 100-240V and NTSC/PAL TV's here.

I was giving you an indication on pricing.

Re: LED from India or Abroad ?

Bro, My advice would be to buy it from India only.
My Brother-in-Law went to Thailand and bought a 32" LED TV for himself. The TV worked great for about 1 month then went Kaput. When Samsung guy came, he told that it was out of warranty and the expenses for repair would be around 12k/-. Better to buy it from India and get Full Warranty...

I know, getting the same to India is full of problems. But the price is irresistible !!

Good price, can buy on EMI as well. What other option do i have in this price range from other vendors ?

I know man, tht risk is always there, but the price for 46" is very high in India !!

Re: LED from India or Abroad ?

Why spend so much on a 46 "LCD tv when you can get a 50" Full HD 3D ready plasma for that same amount of money.

It is a known factor that EDGE LED lit LCD are pathetic for 3D and have average Color accuracy, also they will have back light bleeding and uniformity issue.The only LCD that has decent 3D are the ones from LG.

I am not sure about the newer Sony & Samsung LCD's but the 55" ex720 that we have has strictly mediocre 3D picture quality so choose wisely.
