Cool Operation , Great Picture, Audio IssuesPosted .
Replaced a dead (2-year old) Philips 19 inch LCD with this Insignia. What drew me to this model was the LED backlighting, 1080p resolution and unlike other manufactures that also offer LED sets with 22-inch screens, I can adjust the panel at a 100% vertical orientation (no slant) and was exactly what I needed. However, my stand does sag slightly to the left as looking at it from the front. Fantastic picture using digital sources. With analog signals it’s average but as can be expected. I did have to make menu adjustments to give an agreeable picture on digital or analog. Each input has it’s own picture settings. The remote control has very mushy buttons, which I did not care for. I found universal remote codes to match with Orion in my case. Menu’s are easy to view and navigate around for the most part, but are very slow in responding when going from a selection. Dealing with "favorite channels" is not logical (not in a straight row). You are forced to move back forth over the 2 rows after 5 entries. The owner’s manual is printed in gray ink, so was a hard read for me. Included power supply is under-rated for the product. It’s power rating is 40 watts at 12 volts which figures at 3.33 amps. The provided external power supply is only rated at 3.0 amps, I’m guessing for the reason it also runs very HOT! Also use of the power supplies plastic rear holder makes for almost impossible access to the input jacks. Audio emits from 2 rear mounted speakers, which gives for difficult hearing. But much worse contains excessive hiss, at lower “late night” levels say below 5 setting. I increased the Treble setting to somewhat help offset this, but is no cure all either. Only one HDMI port and no digital audio output at all which limits the usefulness. For me a most useable and pleasant LED set, but not without major disconcerting bugs along the way.I would recommend this to a friend

slim and light weightPosted .
I was happy to replace my 13 inch TV/VCR combo in my bedroom with this sleek new LED TV. The form factor really improves the look of things and opened up space on my dresser. The picture is great. The speakers are a bit tinny. For movies, I use external speakers through my bookshelf system via the headset jack and mute the TV speakers. The sound is great that way. I am not happy with the menu layout or the feel of the remote. The remote buttons are squishy and the response is varied. As mentioned in other reviews to get to the sleep timer, you must go through several menu options and there is no way to see where you are at one its started. There is a better selection of increments than I've had on my past tv: 5, 10, 15 , 30 , 45 , 60, 90..... The wake up timer is poorly designed, having to set year, month, day, time each use and there is no option to choose input or channel (my old 13 inch 12 year old TV could do that). I use over the air signal - I have not been happy with the way the channel search works. You can't manually tune. There is no "add on" option so you can only do a full scan each time - making it difficult to keep old stations while trying to find the right antenna position for new ones. I could do much better tuning with my insignia converter box - I might break it out just to find stations again. I've lost channels that I could get with my old insignia converter box/analogue tv setup using the same antenna. I would bet that the TV would be great with cable, etc. (I am just too cheap to pay for it). The favorite setup was time consuming and was wiped out when I rescanned. The guide option lets you see a single channel's upcoming shows with a description one show at a time. You must tune to a channel to see the guide for that channel. I use the TV mostly with my Roku Box and my DVD player. Both pictures look great and I was able to label the inputs (although there were lots of label choices, Roku was not in the list). I may try one of my game consoles on it. I would recommend this tv to someone who wants the slim form factor and an energy star label . I would not recommend this if you are dependent on spotty over the air signals or want to depend on the TV as your alarm clock.I would recommend this to a friend

Great TVPosted .
This TV stands out in the store. It has a very clear picture and the design is simple and clean. Everything is absolutely great about it. I subtracted one point only because the power cable has a dongle with a very short wire that is attached to a power converter. The converter is much thicker than the TV and the wire is only about 4 inches long. The big ugly converter box is impossible to hide when hanging this tv on a wall. I modified it by splicing in some extra wire and it is now perfect in every way.I would recommend this to a friend

Value AND Quality - a pleasant surprisePosted .
I purchased this primarily for usage in my bedroom. I currently own a Sharp Aquos 37" LCD TV in my living room, and this has a comparable picture, along with a better quality of sound! After researching models, I walked in expecting to purchase either an LG or a Samsung TV. However, this caught my eye, and this was a gut purchase. It turned out to be a sound one. The picture quality is terrific, and the quality of sound impressed me as that has been an issue with past LCD TV's. TV was light and easy to assemble. It was light enough that I wondered if it were durable, but product isn't flimsy or cheap. However, with the 2 year warranty that automatically comes with the TV, I feel confident in my purchase. The design is simple, yet sophisticated. Set up was very easy. If I had to pick an area in which I would give it lesser ratings, it would be the features of the TV itself...seemed somewhat threadbare. However, as an overall purchase - value without sacrificing quality - this gets 2 thumbs up. In addition - I researched this brand for TV's 27" or less on consumer reports dot org, and the model they tested BEAT Panasonic, Samsung, & LG in their ratings! It should be noted however that all Insignias are not created equal, and some were better than others. I recommend comparing in person before purchasing any Insignia, but this one is wonderful.I would recommend this to a friend

Overscan Issue - but great ColorsPosted .
Overscan zooms the picture, so a little of top, bottom, right and left will go over the edge. This functions is off in s-video input, but is always ON on HDMI 1080P input, where it's grayed out in the menu, so it can't be changed. This flaw is many times reported in the technical help forum by many users. Only few reported being able to switch overscan OFF with some tricks on the computer video card end of the setup. This is a problem when using this TV as a computer monitor, and makes it actually useless as a computer monitor. It might be, that engineering made a tiny mistake, by not activating overscan in s-video, where it might be needed, and activating it on the HDMI input, where it should not be needed. Otherwise, the colors are great, as expected with LED backlight, and the viewing angle is pretty much 180 degrees horizontally. The lighting shows a little bit of unevenness, but not noticeable in normal TV viewing. S-Video input upscaling is very clean. Normal DVDs through s-video look excellent. Sound from small speakers must lack bass, but using a separate amplifier and large speakers works out nicely, since there is no noticeable image processing delay.I would recommend this to a friend

Good ValuePosted .
I bought this TV as a dual-role display - TV and computer monitor - and it performs both roles very well. Given its high resolution, it functions perfectly as a monitor as well as a television. With VGA, component, S-Video, composite, coax cable, and HDMI inputs, I've been able to hook up my cable TV (coax), laptop computer (VGA), and desktop computer (HDMI via DVI adapter) with no problem - you can have them all plugged in simultaneously and simply switch between inputs with the remote when you want to move from computing to TV watching. The image quality is fantastic. For my purposes, I just couldn't see any reason to purchase a single-purpose monitor capable of 1920 X 1080 resolution for nearly the same money as this display which also has a nice TV tuner built in. One disappointment is that you can not have the TV in a P-in-P window while computing like I can with my old Samsung monitor. There are only 2 things I don't like about this display: 1) due to the very thin design, you have to deal with 2 compromises. First, the speakers are very small and the audio quality is lacking in bass. I use the headphone out jack into my computer speakers when I care to have better sound. Second, the power supply for the display has to be external in the form of a laptop-like AC adapter - a cable plugs into the wall, into the boxy little converter, and a cable with small coax plug for the display. Not a major issue, just a bit of a pain. 2) because this was meant as a TV, the bracketry for the base does not allow for the monitor to be tilted backward for proper viewing angle right out of the box like a purpose-built monitor would. I had to grind down two tabs on the bracket that locked the display in a purely vertical orientation. This is a quick and simple mod for anyone with a grinding wheel, file, or other abrasive tool but be sure to torque down the nuts properly (I didn't use a torque wrench but I'd say its on the order of 30ft-lb) so the display doesn't flop backwards when you've completed assembly. Without modifying the base, I could never use this display as a computer monitor due to the viewing angle that results from the vertical orientation. If using this as a monitor is what you have in mind, be sure you can cope with this - modify the bracket, lift the display up to eye level, etc. If you just want a TV, no worries. In either case, this display is a great value for these reasons: - low price - flexibility - image quality - much better than average warranty periodI would recommend this to a friend

Overscan is NOT a problem.Posted .
I think this is a good TV and monitor. The main reason I'm writing is that I read a few erroneous reviews that dissuaded me from buying it initially. But after trying out the cheaper Dynex LCD TV (which was OK, but not 1080p, so it wasn't great as a computer monitor) I took that back and tried this. As far as not being able to adjust the overscan in HDMI, that information was just wrong. It's there in the Advanced Video options in the PICTURE Settings. Turn it off and you'll get a better picture. I'm using it with my MacBook Pro and with the overscan option selected in the COMPUTER's display options, you get a nice full screen. With a little tweaking you'll have a very nice computer monitor. Secondly, with regard to using this as a computer monitor, the stand does swivel enough. Someone mentioned having to carve down his base joint to get an angle. You can get a decent angle as is, you just have to tilt it back. It's slight, but should be sufficient for most users. I appreciate the gentleman's ingenuity, but his claim deterred me and I would've saved myself an extra trip to Best Buy had I not considered it.I would recommend this to a friend

Great second 1080p TVPosted .
I've got this tv hooked up to a split cable line and I get a lot of channels with great picture quality. Because I'm in the bedrooom watching this one, the remote is an issue because it doesn't light up. I can get a speciial one or try an older RCA I used for the tv I replaced. Probably no fault of the tv that channel labels are strange, so some time is required to select channels for fvorites and give them a recognizable label. If yo9u hook it up like me, be careful to screen channels for resolution. There are duplicate channels with verying resolution, e.g. Channel 7. My next move is to hook a blue ray player to it to resolve channel surfing issues. I usually watch a samsung 46" in the living room so the adjustment is not so hard with this tv and I can stop sleeping on the couch :) I also have an HD video cam and viewing my 1080p videos on this thing is easy. Some people complain about the sound, but I find myself turning the sound down alot so as not to disturbe other membersof the house. Besides, I got skullcandy if I need to get close-up and loud!I would recommend this to a friend
