Great sound, picture not so much

Today, 4K Smart TVs have become extremely affordable and can be bought without much fuss. While high-end Smart TVs from premium brands like Samsung, Sony, and LG still cost a pretty penny. Some brands like Blaupunkt, Xiaomi and Realme offer value for money TVs that you can buy without spending a lot. Blaupunkt Cybersound 43CSA7070 43-inch 4K LED Smart TV is such a good option, currently available on Flipkart for Rs 25,999. Also Read – Google to open new office in Pune later in 2022

Blaupunkt Cybersound 43CSA7070 Review: Design, Build

Blaupunkt Cybersound 43CSA7070 has a thin plastic frame and slim bezels, which give it a modern look. The TV set has a sturdy construction and one caveat that may arouse the interest of a few – the Blaupunkt Cybersound 43CSA7070 is manufactured in India.

While the TV manages to offer a seamless viewing experience, without the disturbing edges. At the bottom is a silver-colored strip that does stand out and is a design feature that I personally like. The strip consists of the company logo and just below that is the module consisting of the status light and IR receiver.

The TV comes with three HDMI ports, two USB ports, Ethernet, optical audio output, an antenna connector and a single composite AV input, which must be used with a three-way RCA adapter.

I mounted the TV on the wall along with the given VESA mount, and as I installed the unit on my own I found it to be quite sturdy. The body did not move much, and the excessive load on the panel also left no traces.

One point to note is that the TV has no buttons to operate it, meaning if you lost the remote you wouldn’t be able to operate it.

Small remotes with fewer buttons have become a big trend these days. However, Blaupunkt has gone the other way by pairing a large remote with many buttons. The remote consists of a numeric keypad, a D-pad, hot keys for Netflix/YouTube/Google Play/Google Assistant and playback buttons. With this remote I felt much more in control and personally would like to see large remotes with lots of controls make a comeback.

Blaupunkt Cybersound 43CSA7070 Review: Display and Performance

Blaupunkt Cybersound 43CSA7070 has a 43-inch Ultra-HD display with support for the HDR10+ format in combination with a refresh rate of 60 Hz. The TV also comes with support for Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby MS12 processing and DTS TruSurround.

It’s a little disappointing to see that the TV doesn’t come with support for Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos, as competitors like the Realme Smart TV 4K do offer the support for a similar price.

Apart from all these specifications, the television can provide enough brightness, brightness and color rendering for a normal user to consume any kind of content. While the 4K content looks pretty amazing, bundling the TV with a games console like the PS5 will disappoint you a bit, as the refresh rate is a maximum of 60Hz.

While the television offers a fair amount of brightness and clarity. If you’re from a higher range you might want to reconsider, as the TV falls a bit short on peak brightness and clarity of Ultra HDR content.

If the content was consumed in the morning, with sunlight hitting the TV directly, brightness took a big hit, with the TV showing a gray cast. In dark conditions, the TV performed properly.

The colors were sometimes lacking, with the blacks being the most inconsistent, sometimes gray, sometimes black, and sometimes a dark shade of blue. HDR performance was also a bit inconsistent. Mostly, I liked the color science of television, which made all the colors look a little brighter than usual, making them eye-catching.

As for the sound quality, Blaupunkt Cybersound 43CSA7070 features a 50W quad box speaker system, all of which fire downwards. The speaker set tends to get loud and has great tuning. While I’d suggest getting a soundbar along with the TV at this price, I’d recommend using the speakers on the TV.

As for the Google Assistant capabilities, the TV manages to accurately capture every word and respond quickly to the questions. The smart assistant makes the navigation experience a bit easier, as you can just ask it to do whatever task you want the TV to do. However, I feel that this feature is more of a quirk than a necessity for many.

Blaupunkt Cybersound 43CSA7070 Review: UI

Blaupunkt Cybersound 43CSA7070 runs on Google’s Android TV 10 operating system, which feels fairly familiar if you’ve used Android TV devices before.

Like most smart TVs running Android TV, this one also comes with the Google Play Store, which allows users to download and access a whole host of apps like Netflix, YouTube Music, and more. You can also download some games.

The user interface is quite easy to navigate and there isn’t a huge learning curve.

Blaupunkt Cybersound 43CSA7070 Review: Verdict

Blaupunkt Cybersound 43CSA7070 has some kinks, but is a solid offering for the price. While the television may not get bright enough, the sound makes up for it. This is one of the best sounding TVs I’ve heard in this price range, and it has a decent display that you won’t have any major problems with.

While the television is a good overall package, it falls a bit short on the screen portion, with the competition offering much better screens at comparable prices. You can check out the Mi TV 5X and or the Realme TV 4K if you want better picture performance.
