    This TV is a good value for the money. Unfortunately, it's being discontinued for a model that misses the mark, so you should get one while you still can. Here are some of the features that it has that are important: 1. A headphone output (Most TV manufacturers have dropped this feature in the last couple of years, which is moronic). 2. Two HDMI inputs 3. Discrete infrared commands (VERY IMPORTANT). This feature enables you to control it with a universal remote or control system, allowing single-button access to inputs, "power-on" and "power-off". Keep in mind that ti's own remote doesn't have these commands, but a programmable remote or more elaborate control system can make the TV function without having to toggle through inputs or on and off commands. 4. On this model, the cabinet is thin and the shape is linear. With the new model, i'ts got an ugly appendage that hangs down about 3/4" from the bottom of the TV for the infrared sensor. The shape of the back is also ugly. .The whole cabinet is really ugly and irregular on the newer model, making it unacceptable for any application , such as a rack-mount in a commercial application. Fortunately, they got it right with this model. 5. Reliability has been good. I've bought and installed around 40 of these TVs for commercial applications, and only had one fail within two years. That's pretty good for an inexpensive TV.. 7. It has VESA mounting holes. That means it can be mounted on a bracket or an articulating monitor arm. This is particularly helpful if you want to use it as a computer monitor, mount it to a wall, or in an equipment rack for an industrial application. . 8. This TV is ideal for a desk-top TV/computer monitor, a kitchen, a dorm-room, or a commercial application.

    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.

    Great SOUND for 19"!!

    Posted

    I needed a small tv with a good picture and better sound, for the size of the set. What I GOT was a tv with a terrific picture and EXCELLENT sound (I specifically searched the reviews for comments about the sound before buying). Can you imagine happily paying only $69 for a small tv, then being forced to spend hundreds on speakers or a sound bar, just to make it usable? At some point, consumers need to put their collective foot down. I don't know about you but if decent sound is sacrificed to make for a thinner tv, that's a trade-off I'm not willing to make. I get why people might want a huge sound system for the one tv in the house where the game is always on, but I know I don't want a bunch of dust-collecting boxes and gadgets wired up to every single tv in my house. I don't have the space for it, don't want to pay for all that, and I especially do not want to CLEAN all that. None of that is a concern with THIS set, however. If you want a great little set that offers a lot for a great little price, well, here you go. I'm considering purchasing at least one more. Such a great deal.

    GREAT Kitchen TV

    I've been using a 7 inch portable TV as a kitchen TV for the last few years but decided I needed something bigger. I like to have the news on in the background while drinking coffee in the morning or cooking dinner at night. This 19" TV is the perfect size! Overall I am happy with the performance and would recommend it, but it's not perfect. The picture quality is very good but not exceptional; I spent about 30 minutes adjusting the settings but just couldn't get it to be realistic. I ended up using the "Movie" setting which seems to give a warm look to skin tones and colors that aren't overly saturated, although there is still a very bright backlight on black images. The TV seems to be angled a bit forward, it looks like the top is leaning forward more than the bottom. My major gripe is the sound; it's loud enough for the kitchen but at higher volumes there is a noticeable buzz and vibrations, and the sound settings are useless. No matter which setting I choose (movie, news, standard, etc.) the sound is basically the same but maybe a little higher or lower pitched. The speakers are on the bottom of the TV and that seems to detract from the quality and overall volume. I wish the speakers faced forwards instead. I'm using the TV connected to an amplified antenna and I'm getting a lot of over-the-air channels. There are also a good selection of alternative connection options, such as cable, RCA, composite, USB and HDMI. Overall this is an excellent kitchen TV and I'm very happy with it!

    Bought this for a 19" kitchen counter-top replacement TV that had served me well (an Element brand from somewhere else) First I had a hard time getting the picture to show after hooking up to my non-DVR cable box. After calling my cable provider & getting it to finally show channels, the default picture had a border all the way around the image , over 2 inches on left & right ...making the picture screen now approx 15" instead of the 19". I could zoom in and fill out the screen with the remote ...but it was at the expense of distortion & or losing some of the broadcasted image. Lastly ...the image quality was poor even considering my cable input was not in HD. My previous Element TV was better, IMO. Finally, I decided I was not going to settle for this inferior quality & decided to get a 24" Samsung LED TV Model #UN24H4000AF from Best Buy for a meager $30 more. There was absolutely no comparison between the two that the Samsung didn't blow the Insignia away in every way! Get the Samsung! You won't regret it!

    Perfect little HDTV!

    Posted

    I just ordered a 2nd Insignia 19" HDTV for my garage / back patio area. I currently bought one of these a month ago for my office which I use to watch local TV while working (TV has built-in digital tuner) and also have a Chromecast connected to it when desiring to stream (I use to stream Netflix /WatchESPN/ FoxSportstoGO/ VUDU/ etc) TV works great! This is also the 2nd one I have purchased Open Box from Best Buy website for $58.99 w/FREE SHIPPING!!! Comes just like brand new and saved me $20. TV has HDMI jack for cable/chromecast/roku, etc and also has built in tuner. All you need is rabbit ears if wanting to take advantage of the built in tuner for free local channels. (no converter box needed) We have Direct TV at our house with 4 large HDTVs connected up. We have a few other rooms such as my office / back deck/patio which I like to watch games on when at the grill, relaxing, or smoking cigars. All you need is Wifi internet and a streaming device to watch games with you this route. TV is very light (less than 10lbs) enabling easy wall mount with just screws or ability to move this TV from room to room. Probably will take one of these TVs camping with us this summer to entertain the kids at night. Sound quality is similar to the older 13" tube style TVs, not great but not awful. (you're not smart if expecting surround sound quality from this little guy) Has bottom firing speakers for stereo sound. Also comes with nice little remote. Couldn't be happier. May purchase yet a 3rd little TV at this price point for our downstairs Wet Bar. TV has removable speaker stands too.

    I wanted a TV for the kitchen and this was the best I could find for the money. It's hard to find a small TV these days and even harder to find one that's decent. For $80, this one will get the job done. Pros: Minimal color shifting when viewed from sides and from above. VESA mount. Handles input up to 1080 @ 60Hz (native resolution is 1366x768). It's pretty light. Has two HDMI inputs. Has digital and analog audio outputs. The screen has a matte finish so there are no reflections. Cons: Significant color shifting when viewed from below. Built-in stand does not tilt. No VGA input and component/composite input is shared. The power supply is a wall wart. A standard plug with a transformer in the TV would be better. Neutral: Sound could be better. It's not horrible like my 39" Seiki but it could be better. The picture makes it look like the buttons stick out from the side of the TV. They don't. The buttons are not visible when viewing the TV from the front. I wish there were more options for small televisions. I know there are 15.6" and 17.3" 1920x1080 IPS panels because there are lots of laptops that use them. Seems like there would be a manufacturer putting them in televisions by now and selling them as premium units for $200-250.

    Wife and I wanted a larger tv for the kitchen, nothing smart or fancy, just for the news at dinner when we ate at the bar. We could have paid an outrageous amount but didn't want or need to. Connected it in five minutes with a spare HDMI and it is perfect for our needs. Super picture, surprisingly good sound for so small and inexpensive a package. Gave it four stars as I had to fabricate a small device to allow it to sit on the cable box, you can see it in the picture. The provided stand stinks and will only work in certain circumstances. Other than that much better than the old, far more expensive Sony it replaced.
