VU K160M is the cheapest 32 inch LED TV available in the market. Build quality is average and TV has decent look with black colour border on all the four sides. Sound quality is not very good and same is the case with picture quality. Overall, a good option if looking for a very basic TV with average picture and sound quality.
The VU K160M has an average picture quality. Colours are quite saturated out of the box and remains same even after calibration because there are very less options available to adjust the picture quality. Colour uniformity is very poor and bright clouding is visible across the entire TV screen with severe flash lighting at one corner.

The K160M does not get very bright hence picture will look washed out in a well lit bright room. Also the peak brightness remains same with change in window size thus small highlights in the picture will not pop out when viewed in a brightly lit room.
This feature is not available in K160M.
We have not measured the viewing angles but the screen looks good when seen from the sides hence suitable for living rooms.
The TV has poor sound quality. The sound is not very clear even at low volume and gets worse when increased to higher levels.
The VU K160M has a decent build quality and its black colour gives a good look. The TV has enough connectivity options for a basic user and the performance is good if used as a PC monitor via HDMI cable. However, TV has poor picture and sound quality. Also the TV is not very good for watching movies because of judder and poor contrast ratio.
Overall, the VU K160M is a very basic TV at rock bottom prices and is recommended only if budget is a major issue.
