I guess, Flipkart is where you going to place order..

Between the two, my vote is for Micromax.. Vu is 10K expensive than Micromax for 5 inch... VU had Edge Lit where as Micromax is Direct LED... Not much of difference without local dimming feature...

I suggested one of my friend to buy Micromax 50B6000 model during the big billion sale (Oct'15) and got it for 31.5K with 3 yrs warranty (was promotional offer)..

I took a good look of Micromax TV @ my friends place and i felt money well spent...IMHO, the TV is very good...

Even if you choose to buy either of the products, make sure you get extended warranty as you would be covered for 3 yrs...

thanks fr replying. yes i will be using flipkart. the newer vu model is direct led and is having a 60hz respone time. i have checked micromax 6000fhd at reliance digital its good bt i felt tht thr nt much diff btw 42 and 50 incher in temrs of viewng pleasure. thts y i was inlined towards more bigger option. money spent is nt an issue as long as is within 45k. and it sgonna be a atleast 5-6 yers investment so i was hinking on a biiger option. bt as per u said i will be keeping in mind micromax also.

I am also in same position as you, was looking at both Micromax 50 inch and VU 55 but i am planning for VU as it is the most value for money 55 inch TV and 50 inch does not look that big nowadays. Moreover, VU gives us the option to extend warranty to three years by paying 5k for this model and we can buy this within 90 days which is an excellent option.

Yup, i have nearly decided to for VU 55 inch, buying next month, so have some time to discuss. The response time given for this model is the best in the VU TV range, rest you can try to demo the TV if you live in any big city with your PS4.
