Possibly the cheapest Full HD 22" TV currently available
Good pricing for a full HD TV, plenty of connectivity options, good looks, low power consumption
Backlight bleeding, layout of the ports could have been better, colors aren't accurate, basic menu
Expert Rating :
Ok, so Moser Baer isn't exactly winning the crowd with its TV line up. The past few models that we reviewed were easy on the eyes but only when the TV was switched off. It just seemed to lack basic features like decent color reproduction and easy to use menus. Today we have a 22-inch TV from them, which is priced very attractively, but that's not what got us interested. This 22-incher is possibly the first to sport a full HD resolution at this price point. Furthermore, it's also packed with features like two HDMI ports, USB 2.0 port along with other ports you'd expect from a TV. This would make an ideal second TV for the bedroom, or for those staying in rented apartments, it can serve as your monitor as well as TV. You can also hook up your consoles to it.
Design and Build
The Moser Baer looks presentable and you won't be ashamed to display it in your room or workplace. The entire TV sports a glossy finish in the front including the stand. The build quality is good, although the panel seems to be tilted a bit towards the front and there's no way to tilt it back. It's a very minor issue though.
There aren't any buttons in the front except for the IR sensor and the speaker grill in the bottom.
The buttons are placed in the right side and just behind it we have the side ports, which include HDMI, headphone jack and USB port that supports audio and pictures only. Below that we have a master power switch.
The rest of the ports like HDMI, VGA, PC-audio in, one Component and two Composite-in jacks, one Composite-out, S-Video in and the TV in jack are at the back. The layout of the ports makes it very inconvenient when you're connecting something as you can't see the ports.
Overall, the TV has all the ports one could ask for in a 33" TV, which is good, but the real test is yet to come. Let's see how it performs.
