Pros

  • Crisp 1080p resolution detail, high brightness, better design than the Tyagi 3788

Cons

  • Contrast is slightly low for BD/gaming content, no 100hz

Bottom Line

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.

Would you buy this?

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.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
