Design


Micromax T7260MHD Design

Curved : No

The t7260mhd is an average looking TV. The branding at the bottom of the television frame and its plastic borders gives the TV, a slight cheap look.

Stand

The stand holds the TV well but is not of very good quality. Also the stand has a wide footprint.

Borders

The borders have an average width and are made up of normal quality plastic.

Back
Micromax T7260MHD Back

The back of the TV is fully made of plastic. The TV is thick, thus the backs looks bulky and unattractive. If wall mounted, the buttons at the bottom are easily accessible but the rear inputs will be hard to reach.

Thickness

Max Thickness : 3.5" (9.0cm)

The TV looks very thick when viewed from the sides. If wall mounted, it pops out and looks odd.

Build Quality

The TV is not of good quality. The plastic gives a cheap look and from the outside not looks durable.

Picture Quality

The Micromax T7260MHD is a budget TV with sub par picture quality. Movie performance is bad particularly in a dark room because of poor contrast ratio, low colour gamut coverage and judder, thus picture looks washed out. Bright room performance is also not good either because the TV does not get very bright and handle the reflections moderately well. The TV is not good for watching sports because of poor motion handling and bad gray uniformity. The VA panel of the TV has a bad viewing angle and it lacks high end features like local dimming and HDR.

Contrast Ratio

Black : 0.060 cd/m2
White : 121.245 cd/m2
Contrast : 2004:1

The VA panels usually has very good contrast ratios but this is not the case with Micromax T7260MHD. The TV has blueish blacks which are not very deep and due to this the contrast ratio is very low.

Peak Brightness

Peak 2% Window : 200.9 cd/m2
Peak 100% Window : 202.0 cd/m2

The TV has low peak brightness as a result, the bright room performance is not good. The Micromax T7260MHD is not good at highlighting the small details.

Viewing Angle

Panel type : VA

The TV has a bad viewing angle. When viewed from the sides, picture loses lots of saturation and contrast resulting in a completely washed out image.

Panel Uniformity

Max Colour Dev. (50% pattern) : 2.5
Avg Luminance Dev. (5% pattern) : 16.37%

The television has decent colour uniformity. Max deviation is 2.5 which is not very noticeable during normal TV viewing. Unfortunately, luminance uniformity is bad. The center of the screen is brighter than the right & left hand side screen.

The screen appears dirty with a dark patch visible in the middle of the TV screen. There is some banding visible on the left hand side. The blacks are not very deep and appear blueish.

Native Resolution - 720p

720P content looks good. The image is sharp and clear.

Reflections - Bright Room

The reflections are well handled. However, bright room performance is average mainly because of poor contrast ratio, low peak brightness and low gamut coverage.

Local Dimming
Micromax T7260MHD local dimming

Local Dimming : No

The local dimming feature is not available. However, there is a feature called Dynamic Backlight control which dims the entire backlight based on what is shown on the TV screen. We turned this feature OFF as it dims the entire screen instead of dimming a specific portion.

Gamut Coverage
Micromax T7260MHD sRGB gamut coverage Micromax T7260MHD adobe RGB gamut coverage

sRGB gamut coverage : 84.95%
Adobe RGB gamut coverage : 62.98%

The gamut coverage is very bad and the colours are not even sufficient for SDR content. Due to this, picture looks pale and lacks liveliness.

The controls are located at the back of the TV, on the bottom right hand side. They provide basic operations, such as accessing the TV menu/Power off, changing channels and the volume.

The TV consumes a bit more power. The readings are taken after calibration.

Conclusion

The Micromax T7260MHD is one of the cheapest 32 inch TV. The picture quality is slightly better than the competitor VU K160M but the overall performance is bad. The TV is not good for watching sports, movies and even TV shows. Going with the build quality, the TV does not look durable. It is suggested to spend another 4-5k and go with LG LH516A, for a better picture and sound quality plus a durable long lasting product.

Overall, this TV is recommended only for a low budget.
