Here’s Part 2 of our Real Reviews LED TV Buyers’ Guide with Devita Saraf, CEO of Vu Technologies. After answering some basic questions about LED TVs in Part 1, Devita addresses common issues and concerns, and tells us briefly about 3D TVs and Smart TVs, referring to some of the latest models in the Vu range. (The post contains 4 videos)

I’ve heard LED TVs tend to overheat, especially in humid climates. Is it true?

Devita tells us that LED TVs are indeed sensitive and susceptible to moisture, something to keep in mind if you live near the sea or have damp walls. However, she says, proper and regular maintenance can ensure these factors do not affect the life span of your TV.


Is a 3D TV worth the investment?

Even if you end up buying a 3D TV, how often are you going to use it?


What exactly constitutes a Smart TV and what are the options I have?

In the video, Devita informs us that less than 1% of Indian consumers who’ve bought a Smart TV actually end up using it. But that’s because most Smart TVs don’t really offer seamless connectivity. Saying this, she takes us through some smart TVs in the Vu range that address this gap. Vu boasts of having the first TV with inbuilt Windows 8, Apple, Linux or Android operating systems – and that too on a 55-inch screen!


Do LED TVs have an expiry date? How long can I expect an LED TV to last?

Depending on how well you maintain your TV, Devita says LED TVs can last up to 7-8 years.

    Its more than a week after their service engineer has visited & till date my LED TV is out of order due to Power supply Unit not working. After reading reviews regarding VU technologies service, I am some what convinced that its an use and Throw product. Expecting some response from Top management in this matter.

    Parita, sorry to hear about your experience. Perhaps it will help VU if you state what exactly went wrong with your TV and where you are based.

    I am extremely unhappy with the service of Vu Tv. i bought Tv last month but certain functions like USB connection and Internet are not working. I have booked complaint but no satisfactory response yet. It is most difficult to contact Vu. It is published on website that the service is available from 9 AM to 9 PM , 365 days but it is not true. They work from 10 AM to 5 PM with holidays more than any state govt holidays. It is impossible to get service if you are working person.

    I have purchased Vu 55K160GAU 140 cm (55) LED TV from flipkart on 30-06-2015 and suddenly after 10 months TV is not getting switch on and I made a complain on VU customer care on 19th April, 2016 and I received the complain number VU1986 and the next day i.e on 20th April one of the engineer visited my place to check the TV and he said that there is some problem in the part and we need to order the same which will 2 to 3 days and its been a week now and I am calling on VU customer care frequently to know the status but I haven’t recieved any update till yet. Request you to please check the same on priority as the TV is not in function from past 1 week now or if it going to take some more time than please provide me a back up TV till the time TV gets repair.

    Request to please take the issue on priority as I am waiting since very long.
