We just reviewed the Acer I series smart TV by the company and already the brand is out with a new series of TVs before the Christmas season. We played with the latest Acer H Series smart TV for over a week to understand what this TV is made of and whether the price tag of Rs 34,999 for this smart TV is justified. We find out in the Acer H Series Smart TV review below.
Acer H Series Smart TV Review: Design
The Acer H Series Smart TV is very easy to set up and users get a pair of sturdy metal legs in case they want to keep it on the table. However, this time there is no wall bracket available in the box, which was a bit strange as all the previous models of Acer TVs we reviewed were. Moving on, it is very easy to set up and within 15 minutes you can screw the metal legs, battery the remote control and start the device.
– Notice –
A remote similar to the Acer I series can be found in the Acer H Series Smart TV box. You can pair the remote with the TV with Bluetooth and at first, the TV will ask you to do so. Hold the remote control within 1 meter of the TV for easy connection. Then you can move it around up to 30 meters to access the TV. The remote is well designed and has all the necessary keys, including shortcuts to Netflix, YouTube, Disney Plus and Amazon Prime Video.
The Acer H Series Smart TV we are reviewing is a 50-inch 4K display. Two other models are also available – 43-inch and 55-inch (these also support 4K viewing). The smart TV is almost frameless and has few borders at the top and sides. You get a thick silver border at the bottom, which adds to the show and also sports Acer branding. This also hides the 60W speakers that drop down behind it.

Turn the TV around and you’ll find plenty of connectivity options. These include two USB 2.0, one USB 3.0, AV, Ethernet, three HDMI and one 3.5mm aux port for headphones on the right side. The power port can be found on the left side of the back panel. The back is made up of plastic and seems sturdy enough to be mounted on the wall.

Acer H Series Smart TV Review: Performance
Let’s move to the most exciting part of the Acer H Series Smart TV review. But first, let’s quickly talk about some of the technical specifications of this thin tube. 4K smart TV has a 64-bit quad-core Cortex CPU 55 with up to a clock speed of 1.3GHz. This is partnered with a Mali G31 GPU and 2GB of RAM as well as 16GB of storage. The configuration is good enough for future upgrades. If, perhaps, in the coming years Android 12 is announced for TVs, you would be able to upgrade easily, without the need for additional storage.
In terms of internet connectivity, there is the Ethernet port as well as dual-band Wi-Fi. Which is great for a faster internet connection and buffer-free viewing. The 60W RMS sound is tuned by Dolby Atmos and Dolby vision is also present.
Talking about which, the viewing experience on this smart TV is amazing. We loved the time we spent with him. The TV supports 178 degrees of viewing angle, which makes it perfect for large rooms and can be enjoyed with the family. The colors are vivid, and the picture is sharp. Thanks to the high contrast ratio, you get deeper blacks and much nicer colors. We found no ghosting on the screen, even in fast-paced sports events or action movie scenes. This is also aided by the MEMC engine of this TV, which renders frames for a much smoother viewing experience.
The Android TV 11 OS supports all the OTT apps and the popular ones like Netflix, Prime Video etc are already present on the device. More can be downloaded from the Play Store. Thanks to the 2GB RAM in this smart TV the OS experience was free for us. Acer H Series Smart TV didn’t hang even when 3-4 OTT apps were open in the background.
The sound does perfect justice to the brilliantly bright LED screen. In the price bracket, users usually get 20-30W speakers, but with 60W, you will get a lot of good sound vibes for you in a virtual surround sound setup. As we said, the sound is tuned by Dolby Atmos so that the virtual effect can be felt through the speakers. The settings menu is filled with good options for the users to customize the screen according to their viewing preferences, too.
In operating mode, the TV consumes 120W of power, which is typical for this segment.

So, at a price of Rs 34,999 is this TV the right choice for you? We should start by saying that Acer India TVs have come a long way and from the first TV we reviewed last year to the Acer H Series Smart TV, there has been a solid upward trajectory. There are so many improvements, not only in the build quality but also in the picture and sound department. The great effort put in by the Indkal team and the shows of its engineers. If you are looking for a large 4K smart TV, you can easily pick up this Acer India TV at an affordable price.
