The pice is rightPosted .
I purchased this TV about 2 Months ago to replace a HD Hitachi 51" projection tv. The price of $749 with a the 2 year warranty sounded good but the name Insignia was a little scary. The specs looked good and after spending 2 weeks of researching I was ready to buy. The store didn’t have one display but they did have a smaller version with the same chassis and it looked good. When got home I hooked the TV up to the COX cable HD converter box. I was amazed by the bright color and sharpness of the picture right out of the box. My wife walked into the room and I heard oh my gosh that’s beautiful. I programmed the cable box into the Insignia universal remote and we were channel hopping in no time. We did do some tweaking to the color and that was all that was needed. The Audio was basic stereo sound but it has lots of volume. Later I hooked up the Sony blue ray DVD player into one of the HDMI inputs. I ran the audio (via fiber optic cable) from the DVD player into my surround system and the picture and sound was excellent. Then I hooked up the Magnavox DVR and it works just fine. Then came the XBOX.. I wanted to use the component cable so I could run the digital audio into the surround system via another fiber optical cable. The audio was awesome and the video was perfect but the TV would shuts down 30 to 60 minutes. So I removed the component cable from the back of the XBOX and tried a HDMI cable. Doing so I lost the fiber optic connection because it’s on the component cable. The first time it worked just fine but after that it wouldn’t recognize the XBOX. (NO SIGNAL) The only way I can make it work is to turn on the XBOX on and shut the tv off for about 30 seconds and then turn the tv back on and it will then recognize that the XBOX is on. Sometimes this occurs with the cable box. Other than the XBOX problems this TV is a good buy.I would recommend this to a friend

Volume prompt on screen will drive you crazyPosted .
If you are like me you enjoy adjusting the volume as you watch shows or adjust for commericals. With this TV it will drive you crazy because the volume adjustment prompts a generic instruction screen, as if you need instructions for handling the volume up and down buttons. This manditor prompt appears right in the middle of the screen for 5 seconds and can not be disable. I tried every configuration and read the manual from top to bottom. Someone in UI development obviously missed the option to disable visual feedback for volume adjustments. I even contacted the manufacture and they do not plan to ever update this software or change. This despite ever other TV I have every owned having a basic bar view or diable option.No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This was a great buy for the moneyPosted .
This was our first flat panel tv so I did a lot of research beforehand and I paid a lot of attention to the reviews here, so I thought I'd address a few issues. Yes, the sound quality is standard, but why would you have a nice tv and no surround? We also experienced the sound delay when we first hooked it up to our existing surround sound, but after routing the dvr directly to the tv and then the tv to the receiver, that was solved. We also experienced the "jerking", the "ghosts", and a few other viewing issues but took the advice here, lived with it a few days and then learned and tweaked the settings. Now it is perfect! Just change your viewing mode according to the type of movie/tv viewing. (sports, tv, fastg action movie, etc.) To help with the "soap opera" look that some mentioned, adjust the backlighting. All of this can be done from the tv remote, which is a plus. Also, I was able to program all of our devices on the tv remote (direct tv dvr, dvd, reciever) which is a first for us (LOL) A word of advice; learn to program the macros, all of our components come on in order and with one push of the power button....it makes life way easier ;) (I think my husband is actually bummed that we now have ONE remote) The picture quality is absolutely outstanding and looks great even in our brightly lit living room. The angle of the viewing is awesome too, you can sit almost at a full 90 degree angle and see the screen. A plus for when you have a lot of company over. The reason(s) I didn't give this tv a 5 star rating is because of the stand (we didn't want to wall mount it) it IS a bit flimsy and the cord placement in the back is to the side, instead of straight down the back. This is a bit of a problem because you can see cords hanging down. (a problem from a chick's point of view, doesn't bother my husband LOL) Were I had planned on building a custom stand to hide cords, I might look for one that has brackets to mount the tv on, route the cords straight over to the middle and hide the cords straight down the back. (hope that makes sense) Although, I have to say, I love the extra ports on the side of the tv, makes it convenient when hooking up our pc or projector. (but I plan on going wireless with those anyway) All in all, a great buy and value for the money.I would recommend this to a friend

Oustanding ValuePosted .
I recently purchased this TV and must say that I am very impressed with the TV when compared with the price. As other reviewers have mentioned, the TV video settings must be tweaked in order to get the best performance. I found three notable things that drastically improved my opinion of the quality of this TV when compared against the default settings out of the box. First, when watching sports in HD, it seems imperative to reduce the Sharpness setting all the way down to 0. The default setting is 55 and this produces blocking and pixelation around all the players, especially during the action. Turning this down to 0 reduced these artifacts considerably. The video settings can be different for each input and I did not find the sharpness to be an issue with DVDs (don't have a Blu-ray player yet) so I left it on for the DVD player input. Secondly, when watching DVDs, as another reviewer has mentioned, the DCM feature causes the movies to look a bit odd. I was much happier when switching DCM to Off for the DVD input and others have said, it must be off for gaming as well. Finally, DCM seems to be necessary for the audio to be in sync with the picture when using a surround sound system with a cablebox. I found that when I was testing the settings and had DCM Off or Low for my cablebox input that the audio was off by a half second or so. When I switched DCM to High, the audio matched right up and the picture quality was still good. This did not seem to be an issue while watching DVDs as the audio was still in sync with DCM Off. After making these tweaks I feel that this TV is an incredible bargain and with the addition of the 2 year warranty, I am extremely pleased with this purchase. Hope this is helpful.I would recommend this to a friend

Good for the pricePosted .
I bought this TV primarily because I bought a new PS3 and wanted a decent HDTV to play it on. Plus I wanted to watch sports in HD. The picture quality is not outstanding, but I think it's adequate if you're not looking to spend a ton of money. Standard def TV channels look pretty terrible, but that's probably going to be the case on more expensive TVs as well. My PS3 games, BlueRay movies, and even DVDs look very nice. Screen blur is somewhat noticible if you're looking for it, but it's a pretty insignificant problem in my opinion. Also, I bought a surround sound package, so I don't notice the TVs sound problems that others have mentioned, but before I hooked my surround sound up I thought the TVs sound was fine. I should mention that my Wii games not only looked pretty bad, but also suffer from lag between the time I press a button and see a response on screen. However, if you buy component cables for the Wii, reset your Wii resolution settings to 480p, and put the TV on game mode (button on the side of TV) while your Wii is plugged into a game port (component 2), these problems become almost non-existent. Furthermore, if you want your PS3 to perform optimally it must be plugged into game ports (HDMI 4 or 5) and the TV must be in game mode. Otherwise you might have some problems. Finally, I might just be dumb, but when I go to the main menu and try to make adjustments, all of my adjustments return to default if I change the channel or cut the TV off. I can't figure out how to save my settings adjustments and its very frustrating. There may be an easy solution to this, but I haven't figured it out.I would recommend this to a friend

Great BargainPosted .
I bought this to replace a 40" Samsung 720p that's about 3 yrs old now. I've wanted 1080p for some time now, and for the price, this TV was a steal, especially when you consider I paid about $1400 for the Samsung! $800 for a 46" 1080p is just awesome! Picture quality is better than the Samsung (which I'm sure has a lot to do with the 1080p). You do have to tweak the settings, but such is the case with any TV. So far I'm very pleased with the video quality. Sound is fine for my needs as the TV sits in a small living room, but even with that, I do find that I need to turn it up quite high sometimes. So if sound is a major issue for you, either look at a higher priced TV or look into a second party sound system. Blue-ray and PS3 games look awesome on this TV! As others have said, you do need to turn the DCM off, but I think it looks weird turned on for TV/Movies, so we just leave it off all the time. Overall, I think this is a great buy and definitely comparable to the big names in most ways...except this has a 2 yr warranty vs the 1 yr that the big names offer! My only complaints are really that tweaking the video is always a pain, though that's how it is with any TV. I also wish it had a swivel stand like my Samsung does. But you can't have it all! Overall, this TV seems to stand up to the big names pretty well, but at a price I can live with! Let's face it, for $800, if my TV goes out once the warranty is up in two years, it won't hurt near as bad as the 1 yr warranty on the $1000+ TVs! By then LED's will be less and what I'll want anyway!I would recommend this to a friend

Great Budget HDTVPosted .
If you read other reviews on this TV you will hear people talking about the sound being tinny, and other items that I think are a little too harse. If you realize there are more expensive tvs but if you don't want to spend the extra money this is a fantastic tv. I am an electronics enthusiast and was going to wait and save for a Samsung which does have a better picture which is obvious. But I am completely happy with this tv. I don't worry about the tv sound as I have mine running through surround sound as most buyers will. But just for tv the sound is fine. If you compare any HDTV to a conventional tube tv you will be happy with any HDTV as long as you have an HD signal. If you are worried about the brand tv I suggest you do like I did and go see for yourself and make this purchase. You will not regret it.I would recommend this to a friend

Outstanding picture when viewed in H-DPosted .
I didn't want to go over a thousand when buying a H-D tv so I wen twith this and also bought a PS3, well let me just say I have never seen a tv so crisp and clear when I watch it in hd, I was watching the Phillies game on it and I felt I was there,then I put a game in the PS3 let me tell you I was blown away at how good the picture was,now how long it will last is to seen I hope a long time.The buttons on the remote are really tiny and hard to see, I wasn't impressed with the regular non hd channels like they were kind of grainy but most of theose channels are in hd anyway so I'm not worried, I was watching a blue ray movie on it and I wasn't used to the vividness and clarity of the picture it seems flawless it's almost like I miss watching it on a regular tv. There are also a good number of imputsI would recommend this to a friend
