Amazing TV - great pricePosted .
If you are looking for a good tv without worry about brand names, this is a good tv for you. The picture is beautiful - connected my computer and the pic looks great. My Xbox360 games looks incredible. The most important thing was the price! for $398 with 4yrs warrant - you can't beat! Also this tv is the same grade of Olevia, Dynex, Vizio, etc. The screen is made by L.G. but the frame is store brand Best Buy. Do your self a favor. Keep your money or don;t spend your hard money on a expensive brand tv... you know in less than 2yrs it will be worth less than 1/2 price.. that's why it's good to buy generic.... with 4yrs warranty!I would recommend this to a friend

Believe the hype. And read this.Posted .
This is a second Insignia TV for our apartment. The 37" (diagonal) size of the set hits a sweet spot with the space we have available. Tried 40" - too big; tried 32" - too small. Just like the porridge, "just right". LOL Now, on to more detailed information that you can use in the real world: 1. I do NOT work for BB. This is not a freebie shill. I *have*, however, been a loyal customer since 1997. And yes, the associates, regardless of which store I go to (from Thunderbird to Paradise Valley to Norterra) have been spot-on, and great to work with. 2. With the shout-out to the employees done, let's roll up our sleeves and get to brass tacks. On the outside, you will NOT see a "big hitter" name - remember that, for future reference. You're not paying for a Sony, Samsung, Pioneer, Mitsubishi, etc. But the aesthetics of the set, turned off, would lead you to believe that you have. The piano black gloss bezel looks great (but, like any bezel, is probably prone to fingerprints). That's not a fault of the company or the build. That's just something that happens. No loss of rating for that. 3. All the specs that are listed here, and on the Insignia website, state 1400:1 contrast ratio. Maybe they misplaced a zero, because it looks more 14K than 1400. Black levels are impressive, and I definitely advocate the use of the THX Optimizer (and definitely using the blue filter glasses for the color and tint adjustments) for the set. You will NOT regret it. I will post my settings later in this review, so that you can use those as a baseline for your own liking, or just run from them. They're all done under the "Custom" setting for picture. (Obviously.) On a related note, and despite no listing in the specs online, this set does have a backlight adjustment, in the Advanced Video section. Tailor it to your liking, and your energy consumption needs. 4. Moving forward, the initial setup was straightforward, and very efficient. I have a Cox digital cable DVR and run the signal via RF to the set. Even so, and without the added clarity of HDMI (from an HD DVR STB) the picture still looks quite good. VERY little grain, despite the cable connection; maybe I'm just fortunate to have a good, clean copper line. Who knows? I'm certainly expecting even more eye-popping visuals when I add a Blu-Ray player to the mix in a few days. Standard DVDs from my Panasonic SC-HT900 (using Monster component cables) provide a very rich picture, even at the baseline 480i. There *is* a small hint of grain there, but that's to be expected, stretching a pic from 480i to 1080i. No deduction there. 5. The set has 4 HDMI connections (one of which - HDMI 1 - also allows for analog audio throughput if you're using a DVI connector from your source - such as I am, when I hook up my Macbook Pro (2008 Santa Rosa 2.2GHz C2D) to it. But more to the point, the HDMI upconversion looked fantastic. From there, I downloaded and played the Iron Man 2 trailer in 720p, to get a better idea of the look of fast-moving images in 720, since this is a 60Hz set, not 120Hz. Don't worry about that - I've heard more headaches than hurrahs for 120Hz refresh. Most times, people who hook up computers or consoles turn off the 120Hz compensation - so why bother, for now, paying a premium? The technology needs to get better. 60Hz is fine for this point in time. On point, the Iron Man 2 trailer looked absolutely stunning - and keep in mind, this is a QUICKTIME file, not MPEG2 or AVCHD (BD-MV). But it looked FANTASTIC! PS: Mickey Rourke is gonna be one bad, bad man. LOL ...Moving on... 5. Onscreen display and controls - easy to use, easy to navigate, but just a tiny bit slow. This could be due to having the IR sensor in the lower right corner of the set, rather than in the middle bottom. Not a major issue. I was able to set the Cox DVR remote up in a jiffy - codes for that remote, and others, are included in the documentation now. Nice touch. The onscreen menus and size of font are adequate, and easy to understand. 6. On-board sound - I am not going to pass total judgement on this aspect of the TV, because in today's home theatre environment, it's all too commonplace to either simply bypass the TV sound and route to a home theatre from the starting blocks, or run it to a soundbar. You have two options to do the latter with this TV: L/R RCA (standard), or, if you opt to buy a more upscale soundbar, you can hook it up via the SPDIF output (remember to switch from RAW to PCM). I have done neither, but simply outlined how, because I am routing the audio from my Cox DVR to the home theatre, and the TV sound doesn't even come into play. For this review, that's in all due fairness. I will leave the true review of the TV's sound to others who use it expressly. For that reason, I will say this: when I did check the sound on the TV at initial setup, it sounded adequate, had plenty of onboard tweaks, but still sounded a bit less than full and rich, overall. Not that you have to take the volume to lofty heights to just hear it, but if you truly listen, you'll know that this TV (and no TV, to be 100% honest) is going to be relied upon for sound, wholly and of itself. Ever, in any home theatre setup worth its salt. This, in and of itself, was my ONLY qualm with the TV. So take that for what it's worth. Overall impressions: got the TV for $595, tax included, and it is a spectacular buy, at that price point. The included 2 full years of warranty (parts, labor, AND A LOANER IF THEY CAN'T FIX IT IN ONE TRIP - oh, and the loaner IS ANOTHER 37" 1080p!!) is a GREAT step forward in the game. Most other manufacturers only go as far as one year, and do NOT include a loaner in those cases. NICE. Thank you Insignia, and thank you, Best Buy. Maybe other companies will take note and follow suit.... LAST SECTION: TV settings - for verbatim use, or for use as a springboard to your own preferences.... drumroll, please.... PICTURE Mode: Custom Brightness: 50 Contrast: 50 Color: 64 Tint: 0 Sharpness: +2 Advanced Video: Aspect Ratio: Wide Overscan: (greyed out) Color Temperature: Normal Backlight: 24 (of 30 - mathematically a 20% drop) Noise Reduction: High Advanced Contrast: Adaptive Contrast: On Dynamic Contrast Ratio: On From these settings, you can use them, or tweak them to your own personal liking. For those of you who have other settings that you'd like to post, do so. The greater amount of information, the better the community. Excellent TV. Excellent warranty. Fantastic price. Marginal sound (only if you use the onboard - pipe the sound to a HT or soundbar for best results). I would definitely recommend this TV to others. My wife's mom has the 32" little brother to this set, and she loves it, too. So they must be doing something right. Happy New Year to all! (Especially me! LOL)I would recommend this to a friend

Was leery at first… but now I’m convinced!Posted .
Where to start? I was actually in the process of buying the 37” LG 720p. However; they could not find the last one that showed being in inventory. So for the same money they offered to put me into this model which really wasn’t a huge deal since they were the same price to start with. I prefer to have the Name Brand over Store Brand, but the assured me that I would like it and that if I didn’t I could bring it back and get the LG when it was restocked. #1 – First I was pleasantly surprised by the packing. I know, cheesy that I was impressed with the packaging right? But I haven’t purchased a new TV in some time and found the tabs you remove from the bottom of the box to be very ingenious in design, allowing one to just lift the top of the box off exposing the TV to simply be lifted and set in place. #2 – Remote is very nice quality and seems to function all of my devices very well, though I do wish the remote had a backlight. On the other hand my Cable remote does not control the TV very well? It does the basics so I guess I’m just nitpicking here. It will power the unit but will not control the input selector. I’m sure that there is a better code I could be using for the Cable remote but I have yet to do any real searching for the answer. #3 – Included Accessories are a bonus as well; in the packaging was standard Audio Cables, Component Video Cables and a nifty remote control holder. I know Big deal right? I’m not aware of any others that provide them with the TV so it is worthy of mentioning. #4 – The TV menu is okay, I find it poorly thought out and executed. It’s not that it is difficult to navigate, but the process of “Move – Enter – Adjust – Menu – Move – Enter – Adjust…” is just so 1990 in thought process. Once you get use to it’s function it’s not as bad as I’m making it sound, but none the less it is irritating to me and this is my review based on my opinion. #5 – The Picture Quality is Sub Standard via a plain old Standard Definition Cable Set Top Box or piping the cable directly into the sets tuner. If you do not subscribe to some form of HD or Digital Programming you may be disappointed as I was. Now, on the flip side of this I upgraded my set top box to an HD version and the TV just came to Life! Vivid colors and great picture via the HD cable box and the PS3 just plain Rocks in the 1080P mode. Although a 120hz frame rate would be nice! I may have seemed harsh or critical of the set until this transformation with the HD programming, but remember this is not the TV I went to buy! Now I can say with 100% confidence that this TV will not be going back to be replace with the LG. Even the non HD programming looks better now so I’d have to say that the set reproduces only the quality of the signal it receives. In all fairness I did not check the picture via the built in ATSC tuner, so please don’t judge the sets poor picture quality via the Standard Cable as that is not the sets fault. #6 – Audio function just plain sucks! This is a bedroom set for me so I’ll live with it or hook up external speakers. #7 - Over all Performance… After a week of putting this thing through the PS3 / HD cable ringer, it has surpassed my every expectation when it comes to the picture quality. I would rank it up there with the Samsung I have in the living room but at a Fraction of the cost. Like I said before the Audio/Speakers just suck; yes they work and are adequate in what I am using the set for. Would I suggest you Stay away from this TV Set? No way, give it a try and see for yourself. Worse comes to worse you take it back and get a different one? With the 2 Year warranty and loaner program it is a solid purchase that I am now glad I did.I would recommend this to a friend

Great featurers, terrific picture, arn nice HDTV !Posted .
We purchased this TV as a second TV and were looking for something in this size, 1080P, and also needed the "legacy" inputs for older standard DVD players (NTSC and S-video), so that we could connect them and also an older camcorder. Well, this set has 4 HDMI inputs for the here and now, and also component and standard A/V inputs with S-video to boot! The set needs some adjustment in order to display the best and most accurate picture that it can, There is an "Eco" mode that comes close but still is a bit too high on color, brightness, contrast, etc. I used 2 "calibration" test DVDs ( Avia and Video Essentials, to set the TV up. Then popped in my personal reference DVD of Sea Biscuit to do some real world fine tuning. I also applied the same basic adjusts to each input including reception of digital TV off our antenna. For those who care, here are some good initial settings after running the set for a day or two. In the "Custom" setting for "Picture" adjust : Mode Custom Brightness 63 Contrast 39 Color 44 Tint G3 Sharpness +6 Advanced Picture Settings : VERY IMPORTANT Aspect Auto Overscan "ON" Default Color Temperature Warm Backlight 12 to 14 Most Important for long life and accuracy Noise Reduction Off Advanced Contrast Adaptive Cont. OFF Dynamic Cont. Ratio OFF With these settings, you will get the most That this TV has to offer. If you need a bit more color, brightness, or contrast for a particular input (DVD, satellite, cable, etc), then just increase what you need to no more than + 2 or +3 over these values. The remote also has a "Picture" button to let you quickly step through all the pre-programmed picture modes, plus the "Custom" one I just mentioned. If you need a bit brighter display during the daytime, use "Eco" mode. It at least keeps the backlight level down to a 50% level. The lower you keep this setting, the better. At night , or in a normally lit room, keep the TV in the "Custom" mode. The only negative I give this TV is color accuracy. particularly green/yellow blends. It isn't a deal breaker especially for this price point and a 37" 1080P HDTV, and to most people, you won't notice what I'm talking about here :) . All in all, this set can't be beat in this size and price range. And , it comes with a standard 2 year warranty, best in it's class! The remote is very easy to use, although buttons are a bit small.I would recommend this to a friend

Just the right sizePosted .
Shopped for two years. I am part of the over 55 crowd. Basic question was size. I wanted to replaced my old tube set, a 27" RCA of 20 years (bought at Best Buy). Found a web site www.screenmath.com that explains difference between old and new wide screen format. Take old format screen size (diagonal measurement) and multiply by 1.22 to get new wide screen diagonal for equivalent screen HEIGHT (it was 16.2"). In my case 27"x1.22= 33" but I wanted a 2+" Higher screen height (18.5")so went to a 37" wide screen diiagonal. There are pcitures on the web site with calculated values in a chart for the differnet old diagnonal sizes with screen HEIGHTS. Ran a 42" plasma and LCD by Panosonic through its paces using Best Buy's over the air roof antennae. Also the 42" Insignia. Some differences but a smaller size would make for a sharper picture. Glare with the plasma but I also wear glasses which doesn't help the cause. My room size 10'x12" with the T.V. wall on a slanted bias. 37" just right for me. 42" would be a bit overwhelming as only 10' from the screen. Set up was only a few minutes after removing the RCA. I read the box instructions of how to open it. Squeeze the four plastic clips and just lift the box top off. The T.V was completly assembled on the stand. Thank you reviewers in letting me know in advance that the remote is under the bottom corner styrofoam. Hookup to the Toshiba DVD player was easy and their first Toshiba code worked on the Insignia universal remote. I used the analog audio out to a Pioneer tuner for additional sound. But the sound by Insignia was more than adequate. I use the Pioneer tuner for Netlix movies and its remote as it also contols a CD player and cassette tape deck. I am stictly over the air with all HD channels (17 of them). I just love that remote and the picture quality. The 178 degree field of vision is all one needs vs the 155 degree on my 19" Insignia bought last February. We use the Energy savings format as the screen is quite bright. The two year warranty and 18 monthsfree financiing was used the last day of July when I purchase the HDTV. I am not expecting to be disappointed. Still cannot believe the nice sound and picture quality.I would recommend this to a friend

Incredible YVPosted .
Had this TV for 2 weeks, and could not be much happier. It features great picture quality, good sound, lots of inputs/outputs PICTURE: Amazing images in HD (1080p 1080i), the people come to life, almost 3D. Good images as well in (720p 480i). Regular analog broadcast NTSC is a dull, but this is not the TV, it is just a reflection of the low quality NTSC signals. I've not seen any slow response nor blurs when object moves fast. Contrast is great, no dark backgrounds. Just about only adjustment I made to picture was to increase the sharpness thru the menu. SOUND: Good sound, but I wish I could say the sound was a perfect as the picture image. It just seems dull at times, a little bit muffled. I've adjusted equalizer settings and this helped some. I suspect this is because of low quality of sound with regular analog NTSC, as the HD channels sound much better. As I said the sound is good, but I wish it was perfect. I plan to connect TV to Home Theater system using the digital optical signal. REMOTE: Great Universal remote, not overcrowded with buttons. Dedicated buttons for quick changing video size, selecting sources like HDMI. The remote also allows you to control the DVD player, Auxiliary devices (stereo). Also you can adjust the keys on the remote, for example when using remote for DVD player. you can change the Volume buttons to change volume on different device (TV, Stereo). Also remote allows you to custom program remote buttons, I used this to reconfigure the "Guide" key (for the guide screen of your digital TV provider only), but since my cable is analog and does not have digital TV guide, I programmed the remote to go to the TV channel with scrolling TV guide). My biggest complaint, is it is a little slow to scroll thru channels (almost a 1 second delay), so if your as impatient as I am, you need to type channel number often. The Favorites menu is a bit quicker to scroll. Overall an unbelievable TV for 499 with 2-year warranty, most TVs only come with 1-year.I would recommend this to a friend

Great Budget TVPosted .
I helped set this up for my aunt this weekend and figured I'd throw in my two cents about this product. I had to convince her to purchase at Best Buy, as opposed to Walmart, so that I could get my Reward Zone points, but also because I like Insignia. I have a Vizio in my bedroom and it has the WORST color banding I've ever seen on an LCD TV. Sweet Jesus. My aunt's budget was quite tight, so I immediately thought of the Best Buy brands: Insignia and Dynex. I own several products by the two manufacturers and I've never had a problem with them. They are consistently more affordable than the Sonys and Samsungs. I don't own an Insignia TV myself, but if you look through my other reviews, you'll see that I have found myself setting one up for another person before. In any case, like I said before, the great price attracted me to this TV while I was researching. At 37 inches diagonal, this TV lies smack in the middle of the HDTV sweet spot. The size is perfect for my aunt's small living room. Moreover, we couldn't purchase a TV too big for the trunk of my small SUV. The box was somewhat fatter than even TVs larger than it, but it still fit beautifully into my trunk. Unboxing went smoothly. The design of the box was clearly well-planned, and unsnapping some plastic pins made sliding the boxtop off easy. I've seen many videos on Youtube of people struggling to open TV boxes every which way, only to pull the TV out upside down or something. This Insignia's box design was really neat. I'm not a manual/instuctions kind of guy, so I set the TV on the stand I had just finished assembling immediately. I plugged in the cables and the power, but when I went for the remote, I realized that all I had was its batteries. Combing the room and floor produced nothing, so I checked the box again. For some reason the remote was put in the top portion of the box that I had slid off. I suppose I was caught up in the novelty of the design, but I don't know why it was placed there, and not at the base of the box where the TV was resting. I could have easily thrown the box out and lost the remote. Anyway, I readjusted the positioning of the TV before finally turning it on and discovered that it could swivel! Definitely another cool design idea. My aunt has Over-the-air service, and the HD signals were beautiful. I tweaked the display settings a bit still, just because I love tinkering with these kind of things. I was happy and my aunt just phoned me to convey her happiness with her new set. "It's so clear," she told me. I'm thoroughly content that I got her to replace her 20-year-old tube set for this Insignia. I would recommend this product and will always consider this brand when on a budget.I would recommend this to a friend
