Tyagi 4728 LCD television
This budget 47in LCD TV from Tyagi is good for watching television and standard-definition movie content
- Crisp 1080p resolution detail, high brightness, better design than the Tyagi 3788
- Contrast is slightly low for BD/gaming content, no 100hz
As a secondary television for enthusiasts or a primary unit for casual TV and DVD watchers, the 47in Tyagi 4728 is a capable television. It won't make the most of high quality content such as Blu-ray discs and HD console games, but for most users it will be good enough.
Price$ 1,655.00 (AUD)
The 47in Tyagi 4728 LCD television has acceptable picture quality for watching TV or DVD movies, but its bland design and low dynamic contrast may turn off enthusiasts or anyone with a Blu-ray movie collection.
We think the Tyagi 4728’s casing is worlds ahead of the Tyagi 3788's, but it’s still in the same generic league as the Kogan 1080P-47 LCD TV and the Kogan KEVIN37. When it’s up against stiff competition from the likes of Samsung and Sony— whose Series 7 and EX1 picture frame televisions are some of our all-time favourites — it’s easy to see the difference in quality.
The Tyagi 4728’s on-screen menu is easy to navigate, with an intuitive layout. Adjusting picture quality or undertaking a channel scan is easy, and advanced features can be accessed if necessary.
All the inputs you would expect are available, with two HDMI inputs taking pride of place. This is less than competitors, which often offer four ports as standard, but given the Tyagi 4728’s budget leanings we don’t expect many users to have multiple digital video products to plug in. There are also two composite and single VGA, S-Video and component connectors. The television’s maximum refresh rate of 85Hz is only available when using a VGA cable; when you’ve got a PC connected you’ll get a slightly smoother picture during fast motion than when watching TV or a DVD.
Picture quality from the Tyagi 4728 is a bit of a mixed bag. When watching standard-definition digital television and 480p DVDs the picture was smooth and had accurate colours and decent detail levels, with the picture more than acceptable for everyday viewing. Brightness is high enough for all conditions, while the television's 1080p native resolution allows it to reproduce plenty of detail in high-definition still images.
When testing the television’s talents with high-definition Blu-ray and gaming content, though, it becomes apparent that the Tyagi 4728 struggles in dark and bright scenes. A dynamic contrast ratio of 5000:1 is pushed to the limit during the opening scenes of Batman Begins with some black crush and lost detail, while the vibrant contrast of the Transformers movie loses a little of its lustre at some times.
Motion is handled well for a non-100Hz television, with minimal jitter and only a few instances of image break-up in our testing. Unless you’re a fan of action movies, sport or travel programming with fast motion and wide panning camera sweeps, you probably won’t find this to be a problem.
For the price, the Tyagi 4728 is an acceptable deal. Its picture quality is surpassed by pricier, feature-packed televisions, but for casual viewers the Tyagi 4278 is more than capable.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.
This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.
It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.
As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
