This TV is downright incredible for the price. As a TV it gets good reception, has a fine picture and reasonable speakers (along with both analog and digital optical outputs), and tunes broadcast channels very well even with an unamplified antenna. The menus feature a surprising amount of options, and the on-screen displays for channel info, signal strength, and program description are all useful, especially for first-time to cord cutters. The remote is small and light but has good construction and functions, and the IR receiver doesn't need careful aiming.
The Insignia also serves brilliantly as a secondary (or tertiary) monitor for a desktop computer setup. I haven't tried gaming on it, and it's probably inappropriate as a primary display, but it's perfect for extending your desktop, or watching TV while you compute. NOTE: The "720p" display actually has a native 1360x760 panel, so if you're using this as a monitor you might want to force that resolution (in a configuration file if, say, you're using it with a Raspberry Pi, for which this is an awesome low cost, small-footprint solution). The native resolution adds a little desktop real estate and gives a much sharper image for text.
Also of note, the 19" size is kind of perfect for cramped spaces, and it weighs next to nothing, so it's portable and compatible with even the flimsiest of TV mounts like the one I had laying around--I'm not using the included detachable feet.
I had looked all over for something that would fit a crowded battle station, and was only finding 24" TVs that wouldn't fit, or low-res (or exceedingly expensive) <14" specialty displays. The 19" Insignia is one of the only displays I've found that fills that gap in the market, and it happens to do so for less than you'd pay for virtually any other option. All without any real compromises. If you can't tell I'm stoked on this product. The MSRP is low enough to justify consideration, and it's impossible to dismiss this TV at the sale prices I've seen lately.
