Purchasing a television is a pretty big deal. With so many variables, factors, and technologies behind these increasingly powerful visual devices, figuring out which one is right for you can be quite a task, isn’t it? I am not an expert to offer you any advice on buying TVs; I still make do with a Sony Trinitron, purchased nearly a decade ago and it seems to be doing a fairly decent job. But whenever I visit an electronics store and get surrounded amidst a plethora visual devices— LCD, LED and Plasma—I get a feeling that the telly in my living room is rather small and somewhat obsolete. Plain speak, it’s time to upgrade to something bigger and more advanced.

While the research for my own purchase is ongoing, Taiwanese display technology major AOC, widely known for its range of LCD monitors, LCD TVs and all-in-one PCs, sent us their new full high definition TV for a product review. And believe me, evaluating the LE42K09D device was a good learning experience to me at a personal level. The TV has been with me for the past couple of weeks and I am quite pleased with it so far. This ergonomically designed TV is a super slim television on a thin mount. It comes with 120 Hz Motion Boost and 10 Bit panel with 16.7 million colours that brings to life intricate video scenes and gives unmatched clarity to fast sporting sequences.

The test unit came to us neatly packed in a rather large cardboard box with all the specifications detailed on its sides. The TV comes in a 40 mm profile and piano-black finish adding elegance to its looks. Setting up the TV was simple. To assemble the stand, you just need to install four thumb screws in the base. Then just plug everything in, and you’re done. The channel setup was also quite easy. The included remote is designed to control the TV only.

The TV features a contemporary design and fits perfectly into any home environment and décor. I connected the cables, plugged in the Tata Sky set-top box and also connected the TV to my Sony music system and its associated speakers for enhanced sound effects.

Quite frankly, I was overwhelmed by the AOC device’s all-round performance. The picture is bright and colourful,
