LG 28MT49S-PZ

Rating: 4.9

LG 28MT49S-PZ

An excellent TV that can partially replace a computer. The fact is that despite its small enough size, it is still endowed with support for the Smart TV function. This means that most of the largest online cinemas have customers here. Also, the user will be able to install additional applications that are in the corresponding online store.

The 28-inch screen installed here can boast only HD-resolution. However, with such a diagonal, it seems quite sufficient. And much more important is the fact that the display is made using IPS technology – this speaks of the maximum viewing angles. The sound is output here using two 5W speakers. If this does not seem enough, then no one will prohibit connecting an external speaker system using the optical output.

Of course, you can watch more than just online content with this TV. The product has support for all digital TV standards – from terrestrial DVB-T2 to satellite DVB-S2. At the same time, the device received two TV tuners, which allows you to connect the same number of antennas. And there is also a USB port to which a flash drive or external hard drive is connected. Of the other connectors, a pair of HDMI sockets should be distinguished, allowing you to connect both a laptop and a game console at the same time.

The TV turned out to be lightweight and energy efficient. A pleasant bonus can be considered a light sensor, which allows the system to automatically adjust the brightness of the backlight. In a word, this is a very good device, the main drawback of which is a fairly wide frame.

Advantages

  • The display is made using IPS technology;

  • Built-in two independent TV tuners;

  • There is a light sensor;

  • Smart TV available;

  • All digital TV standards are supported;

disadvantages

  • Only HD resolution;

  • The cost reaches 16 thousand rubles.

  • The number of connectors is not large;

  • Low speaker power;

  • Very wide scope;

Samsung UE28J4100A

Rating: 4.8

Samsung UE28J4100A

Another 28-inch TV in our ranking, with a familiar design. He, too, was not released yesterday, in connection with which the buyer will find a fairly wide frame. The South Korean manufacturer also saved on resolution – the user will watch an HD picture. Unlike LG, Samsung does not have access to IPS panels. As a result, the budget creations of the South Koreans get a screen, the viewing angles of which cannot be called maximum. Nevertheless, they are not minimal, most often buyers do not complain about this factor. And it is much more important to them that the refresh rate of the display is brought here to 100 Hz. This is most pleasing when connecting a TV to a powerful computer, when you can run a modern game with maximum FPS. However, when watching TV, the high scan rate is also noticeable. However, it should be noted that for a satellite dish, the buyer will need a receiver, since the list of supported digital TV standards here is limited to DVB-C and DVB-T2.

Like the previous model reviewed, this TV offers two HDMI ports and one USB port. There is also a headphone jack, which is useful if a child or, say, a spouse is sleeping nearby. For the worse, the product is distinguished by the presence of only one TV tuner. That is, the buyer will not be able to connect two antennas to the device at the same time – he will have to make a choice between the 'cable' and the 'spear'. The device includes two speakers with a total power of 10 watts. This is the standard for such small TVs, so the buyer will definitely not complain. If you want to improve the sound quality, you can use the optical audio output by connecting external speakers.

It remains to add that the TV with its stand weighs only 4 kg. This parameter was achieved due to the rejection of advanced components – a large amount of RAM, a powerful processor and others. The downside of this solution is the lack of Smart TV. If you want to watch content on the Internet, you will have to connect a laptop or a special console. Such a TV costs about 14 thousand rubles.

Advantages

  • Compact size and weight;

  • High-quality assembly;

  • Among the connectors there is a headphone jack;

  • Decent sound quality;

  • Screen refresh rate increased to 100 Hz;

disadvantages

  • Wide display bezel;

  • No Smart TV;

  • Only one TV tuner is built in;

  • The resolution is 720p;

  • Not the widest viewing angles;

Thomson T28D21DH-01B

Rating: 4.7

Thomson T28D21DH-01B

Quite good 28-inch TV, which is recommended by the manufacturer for installation in inexpensive hotel rooms. However, it got into our rating thanks to its ideal home use. Yes, the resolution of the screen installed here is only 1366×768 pixels. But on the other hand, the matrix is ​​capable of boasting maximum viewing angles – distortions in color rendition are almost invisible. But even more, the product is able to please with its sound. The fact is that two speakers with a total power of 16 W are used here – very good for a TV with a 28-inch screen. If, for some reason, you want more, then the device has a coaxial audio output, which is used to connect speakers or a soundbar.

Unlike most TVs reviewed in this rating, Thomson T28D21DH-01B has three HDMI connectors at once. This allows you to connect a game console, action camera and laptop. The latter can be useful for watching online content, since there is no Smart TV support here. However, it would be strange to see her on TV for 9 thousand rubles. Instead, the product received support for digital TV standards DVB-T and DVB-C – the user will need a receiver only if a satellite dish is connected. Some indignation from the buyer can be caused by the USB port, which is present here in a single copy. But quickly enough you realize that a larger number of external drives will definitely not be connected to such a TV. Much more important is the fact that there is a headphone jack that really comes in handy. And the product is also endowed with a light sensor, which you generally don't expect to see on a budget TV.

Advantages

  • Very low cost;

  • Decent build quality

  • The screen has wide viewing angles;

  • The speaker system cannot be called low-powered;

  • Headphone jack is not forgotten;

  • There is a light sensor;

  • Built-in three HDMI sockets;

disadvantages

  • Only one TV tuner is built in;

  • The display does not have the highest resolution;

  • There is no Smart TV;

  • No support for digital TV satellite standard;

BBK 28LEM-1056 / T2C

Rating: 4.7

BBK 28LEM-1056 / T2C

Another HD TV. The Chinese manufacturer specializes in very cheap devices, but this model cannot be called such – for it in Russian stores they ask for at least 10 thousand rubles. Of course, for that kind of money, it's silly to wait for a device with Smart TV support. If the Chinese had installed here Android, it would have shamelessly slowed down on such a “hardware”. But I would like to get a decent set of connectors. And the manufacturer listened to this desire – he endowed his creation with three HDMI sockets and one USB port. Thus, in addition to the TV, in the children's room there can be SNES Classic Mini, Sony PlayStation 3, and even a video camera socket will remain. By the way, there is also a VGA-connector here, which is necessary for connecting a computer.

Otherwise, this is a typical 28-inch LCD TV that sells for relatively little money. The sound is output here using two speakers, each with a power of 8 watts. To connect speakers, you can use the S / PDIF connector. The use of headphones is also available, the corresponding jack is not forgotten. Only one TV tuner is intended for watching TV, plus the product does not support the DVB-S2 standard, in which satellite operators broadcast. However, the vast majority of buyers will have enough support for terrestrial and cable digital TV standards. It is also impossible not to notice that the installed display has maximum viewing angles. Or close to the maximum – from some angles you can still notice certain distortions in the color rendition.

In a word, BBK 28LEM-1056 / T2C can be bought for installation in a children's room or anywhere in the country. This is a miniature TV, 100% fulfilling the funds invested in its purchase.

Advantages

  • Very wide viewing angles;

  • Affordable price tag;

  • Minimum power consumption;

  • There is a headphone jack;

  • A large number of HDMI jacks are built in;

  • Good sound quality;

disadvantages

  • Satellite TV is not supported;

  • There is no Smart TV;

  • Only one TV tuner;

  • Only HD resolution;

Akai LES-28A67W

Rating: 4.6

Akai LES-28A67W

The TV, the body of which is painted in a color other than black, should also have got into our rating. Our choice in this case fell on the Akai LES-28A67W. This model has a white color – this applies to both the body and the stand. The device is on sale for 12 thousand rubles. The amount seems to be small, but for this money the manufacturer has already managed to provide its creation with support for Smart TV – a function based on the operating system Android. Of course, you shouldn't hope for the perfect operation of applications – in some cases insufficient processor power and not the largest amount of RAM are noticeable. The connection to the router is carried out either via Wi-Fi or via an Ethernet connector.

As you might guess, the screen of this TV has a resolution of 1366×768 pixels. The viewing angles are maximum, but the response time turned out to be very long – it is equal to 8 ms. This suggests that the device is suitable for watching TV, but not for using it in tandem with any modern game console. Although the manufacturer still provided his creation with three HDMI connectors, so you can connect a lot of all sorts of additional devices to it. And on the case, you can find two USB ports, which are needed primarily for using external drives. A coaxial speaker output and a headphone jack can also please. Both connectors may well come in handy. The first is due to the insufficient power of the built-in speakers, and the second is with a sleeping child next to it.

Like other budget TVs, this model has only one TV tuner. And here, unfortunately, there is no support for the satellite standard DVB-S2 – if you have acquired a 'dish', you will also need a receiver. But everything is in order with the support of other digital TV standards.

Advantages

  • Smart TV available;

  • The body and stand are painted white;

  • Small size and weight;

  • Viewing angles are close to maximum;

  • You can connect headphones;

  • The price tag is not high;

  • There are three HDMI sockets and two USB ports;

disadvantages

  • One TV tuner is used;

  • Smart TV works with brakes;

  • The total power of the speakers is 12 W;

  • TV does not understand satellite TV;

Thomson T28RTE1020

Rating: 4.5

Thomson T28RTE1020

This 28 inch TV is painted in the usual black color. Some buyers will immediately be intimidated by a wide enough frame. But you should not expect a modern appearance from a TV that is sold for only 9 thousand rubles. As well as not wanting to get a screen with a very high resolution – here this parameter is 1366×768 pixels. The matrix, however, is of a very high quality. Buyers do not complain about viewing angles, and the response time of 6.5ms is not excessive. In a word, the TV received a relatively good 28-inch display, which allows you to put the device even in the kitchen.

This product is primarily intended for watching television. For this, it is endowed with a TV tuner that supports the DVB-T2 and DVB-C standards. But you can connect additional devices to the device, for which two HDMI jacks will be used. But, as it seems, more often Thomson T28RTE1020 buyers play content from a USB flash drive, for which the corresponding port is intended. Continuing the topic of connectors, one cannot fail to mention the support for a VGA cable, with which the image is transmitted from an old computer. In a word, no one prohibits the use of this TV as a monitor. It also has very low energy consumption, which is also good news. To find fault, perhaps, only the speaker system. It consists of two 5W speakers. If you want to enjoy not only the picture, but also the sound, you will have to connect external acoustics to the coaxial connector.

Advantages

  • Minimum weight (3.7 kg);

Shivaki STV-28LED20W

Rating: 4.4

Shivaki STV-28LED20W

Another representative of our rating, painted in white. This is perhaps the cheapest TV among those that are endowed with two independent TV tuners. In Russian stores, they ask for 10-11 thousand rubles for this device. As usual in such devices, the socket of the second TV tuner is intended exclusively for connecting a satellite dish. As a result, the user gets the opportunity to watch both terrestrial (or cable) and satellite TV. Very comfortably!

The picture is displayed here with a resolution of 1366×768 pixels, which is quite enough for a 28-inch diagonal. It should be noted that the manufacturer used a non-standard matrix. Its viewing angles are wide, but not maximum. A distinctive feature of the display is a short response time of 5 ms. This allows you to recommend a TV for watching movies, including those with a lot of action. It is also quite comfortable to play on such a screen. By the way, up to three devices can be connected here via HDMI. The TV also includes one VGA connector and two USB ports. The latter are needed only for connecting external drives. This model does not recognize the periphery, since there is no operating system here.

It remains to add that as a speaker system, the Shivaki STV-28LED20W has two built-in speakers, the total power of which reaches quite acceptable 16 watts. In short, such a TV looks like a worthy purchase if the device is required for a children's room or other small room. In the kitchen, the viewing angles may not seem wide enough. And why is there a TV in the kitchen with two TV tuners and a lot of connectors?

Advantages

  • Built-in a pair of independent TV tuners;

  • Narrow frames;

  • Affordable cost;

  • Headphone output is not forgotten;

  • A very large number of connectors;

  • All digital TV standards are supported;

  • The screen is capable of boasting good response time;

  • Good sound quality;

  • Atypical white color;

  • Small size and weight;

disadvantages

  • Low resolution;

  • There is no Smart TV;

  • Viewing angles do not reach the maximum;

Conclusion

This is the ranking of the best 28-inch TVs. Now you just have to decide on the desired functionality of the device, as well as the amount you are ready to part with. We hope you will not be disappointed with your purchase.
