Design and build
The rear panel of the TV is made out of polycarbonate. The plastic quality seemed sturdy which felt quite smooth yet durable. A bump in the rear panel is provided for all the ports. The TV has three HDMI ports, 2 USB Type-A ports, an antenna port, an AV port, a display audio port and a LAN port on the right of the bump. While the port to connect the power chord is placed on the left side. The rear bump also seems convenient as the ports can be easily accessible even if the TV is fixed on a wall.
Bezels on the front panel are also very minimalistic. Except for the bottom part, the bezels which are placed around the other three edges of the screen are very sleek and almost invisible. The thicker bottom panel also has the company logo on it. The sleek bezels offer more screen real estate which improves user experience while watching content at higher resolutions.
Aiwa has used the Crysta Vision Technology (CVT) in this TV to improve user experience. The TV features a quad-core processor which works with the CVT to enhance its picture quality. The details that are shown on the screen are also sharp and accurate. However, in some cases, the panel takes a few seconds to adjust the picture quality while running 4K videos.
The TV also offers a 178-degree viewing angle. We have practically tested the viewing experience from multiple angles and the panel didn’t disappoint us. This picture quality doesn’t deteriorate from tighter angles. You won’t see any black areas in the panel even if you watch it from the side or at angles above 90 degrees.
We tried playing 4K videos on YouTube on the TV and it offered satisfactory output. The images looked sharp and clear at the highest picture quality the TV supports. The Ambient Light feature of this TV was also working fine. Even if bright sunlight falls on the screen while watching, The TV will optimise the picture quality according to its surroundings and adjust itself to offer better viewing conditions.
The 4K picture quality seems decent and matches the standards of the products that are available in the market. While watching various content on the TV, the images weren’t just smooth but were also pleasing to the eye.
Blacks on this TV are also very accurate and the panel doesn’t show much greyness during darker shots. The panel also supports anti-glare technology which allows users to watch content on this TV without eye strain.
This product runs on Google TV out of the box and will allow you to select different picture modes. The picture settings menu in the TV will also help you to set different options like brightness, contrast, sharpness and more. All the features of the latest Android TV version are included in the TV.
Aiwa has experience in delivering fine-tuned sound quality on its devices. The sound of this TV was also dynamic and satisfying to the ears even at lower levels. At higher levels, the TV’s in-built speakers were loud enough to be easily hearable inside a standard living room without the need for an external speaker setup.
You can also connect your gaming console or laptop to this TV using an HDMI cable. With lag-free and good picture quality, it will offer a decent overall experience.
In this price range, the picture and sound quality along with the smart features delivered by the TV seem quite appealing. There are TVs from other brands that are available in the market at this price segment that offers a nearly similar viewing experience. However, this TV gives other products cut-throat competition. The product can be easily recommended to consumers who are mainly planning to use this TV to watch content. You can go for it if you are looking for a good 4K UHD TV with reasonably good sound quality under Rs 50,000.
