Price: Rs. 45,000

With every other manufacturer jumping aboard the LED bandwagon, Onida too recently stepped on board when they launched their new Svelte series of LED TVs. Is it competitive with big players? Let’s find out.
The new Svelte series come with what Onida calls I-Care technology, which is toughened glass bonded with the LCD panel. This is also further coated with a UV protective film that serves two purposes; one of reducing reflections and the other being protection from UV rays. The glass can also withstand a great deal of force, so if you have kids in the house, this will be added advantage.
Onida's entire Svelte lineup features,
·        1920x1080 resolution dual
·        USB2.0 ports capable of playing back DivX HD
·        Surround Sound
·        SRVe Image Engine
·        Contrast ratio - 300000:1
·        Output - 300W
·        Display - LED LCD screen
Design: The TV is fairly slim with a completely flat front. The stand looks unique and attractive.
The TV is capable of displaying very good colors with good blacks. There wasn't any major backlight bleeding either despite being an Edge-lit LED LCD.
The menu system is very easy to operate even for a novice user and the buttons on the remote respond well.
Along with the standard color options, there are options for Noise Reduction, Flesh Tone, Dynamic Contrast in the Advanced menu.
There isn't any Eco mode however.
In a fully lit room, reflections are still a problem when a dark image or scene is displayed. This is due to the glass panel on the screen.
The TV has various sound modes including an equalizer and a Surround sound option. The sound is certainly loud enough for a medium sized room. The clarity of the sound is just about average.

Although this is good TV with above average performance, it is not competitive enough compared to other brand’s TVs available in the market. At about same price we can get LG 32LE5300 which has the same features of the Onida like DivX HD support, 1080p, etc. In addition to that it also features 120Hz TruMotion, Ambient light sensor, IPS panel, Eco mode and has a total of four HDMI ports.
