    GREAT GREAT tv!

    Posted .

    If you're considering this tv, get it! The picture is perfectly crisp, clear, saturated and beautiful. The sound quality is great. Better than any other TV I've ever had actually, even big big brands. I LOVE this tv and you CAN NOT beat the price. AMAZING deal! UPS did Crack the screen, but I brought it over to best buy and they let me exchange it right there rather than making me make a claim with UPS, etc. Took 15 minutes. Next time I'll have best buy deliver or ship to store/ store pick up. But trust me, this tv is wonderful. You will not regret it!

    A Great Un-Smart TV

    Posted .

    This TV is great at being what it is, a TV with no added brain. To get three HDMI ports makes it wonderful for plugging multiple peripherals that are used, today. I would have gladly traded one of those ports for a component I/O panel, however (you'll be working with composite, at 480i; will not look good on a PS2). The 1080p is gorgeous; my Shield pops on it. For what it is, one of the best TVs I've ever seen.

    I bought this TV for my daughter whom moved back home from school.Very low price... $179.00. Good picture, sound, etc. Nice, small easy to use remote. Easy programming. Easy to mount on the wall, too! Sure, you can find a better one, but serves my purpose well.

    Older tech, bad viewing angle, bad whites, blacks!

    Posted .

    Picked this up today for $199.00 and spent the first 3 hours screwing around with every possible setting (very limited settings and no color driver controls at all). Viewing angle is the worst I have ever seen, whites are pinkish and multi-colored, blacks have that weird negative, reflective ghosting look and everything dark falls off into oblivion with no details visible. VERY disappointing. This TV screen also has that weird look when solid color areas or transitions, especially grays and whites appear to be made of many other colors, not just one. I had a computer monitor that did this about ten years ago. This is old technology (maybe TN) and most certainly not IPS or other newer tech. When I look at white areas I don't expect to see whisps of reds, greens, blues, etc mixed in there. Next, off-axis viewing is so bad it looks almost as if it becomes reflective. To check this out more, I switched to an unused input so I could see a uniform black (dark grey) screen. I sat 6 feet away and leaned my head left and right. The only place you see absolute black is dead center vertical and horizontal. However, even sitting in one spot, dead center, 6 feet away, the left and right screen edges were already noticeably lighter (see attached photo). Moving farther right or left (and up and down) the screen actually looks washed out and purple or magenta... CRAZY!!! I cannot handle it. I am returning this horrific thing tomorrow morning. Best Buy should consider throwing these in the trash instead of reducing the price!!!! So, in conclusion, I cannot recommend this TV to anyone at any price!

    Glad i got the replacement plan

    ive had it for about 4 or 5 months now and its developed bad shadowing right across the middle of the panel. Other than that the speakers weren't too bad for a cheap flat screen and the response time was decent for gaming.

    Loving it

    I went to Best Buy and got this as a birthday present to myself. I looked and compared it to other televisions, but ultimately decided on this one due to it's price and quality. I also talked to a Best Buy team member who said the screen was made by Samsung, so of course I would be going with this one. It works wonderfully. The picture is perfect. Also, if you're into playing video games like my fiance and I, you can actually read all the words. I love it so far.

    I was looking for a lower cost TV due to some upcoming career movement. My main goals were a better picture and a little more size (I was upgrading from 26", 720p.) This has surpassed my expectations. Very clear picture, instructions, menus, and the three HDMI ports is one more than most lower cost TVs. Hooked up with no issues and the over the air reception is quite good. Staff at the Albany Best Buy were very helpful too. If this is the right size for you, I highly recommend this TV.

    We bought this for our grandson he needed a TV. The price on this TV. And name brand was unbelievable. Our grandson could not believe the size of it and how beautiful it was. Now he is so happy he can play his x box games on a really nice TV. We were so happy as his grandparents we made him happy. He just loves it. He is enjoying it everyday especially that he plays x box games all the time and the screen is huge compare to what he had. We did not even hesitate to buy it because the price was a great price and the tv is a really nice tv. Glad we made our grandson happy and that makes us happy. The picture on the TV is so clear , sharp and the colors r so bright. Thank you again best buy for your prices and your beautiful tv's never bought this name brand before but I will buy another one with same name it is an excellent TV LOYAL CUSTOMER AS ALWAYS.

    Nice little TV...

    |
    Posted .

    I recently moved in with my cousin and they had a 42" Hisense already in the room I occupy. No matter what I tried my Roku and Panasonic Blu-Ray player made a horrible buzz when connected via HDMI. At low volume it was very noticeable so it had to go. I picked up this TV after reading a few reviews and decided it would fit the bill. Not disappointed in the least. Perfect for a smallish bedroom (10'~14' square). Puts out decent sound for the purpose it serves and the size of the room. Plenty of picture settings to tweak to your liking. A nice feature is discrete/independent video modes for each source input. If you stream mainly HD content via your Roku player on HDMI 1 and tweak the settings to your liking it will change to those settings when switching from HDMI 2 which you may have set for viewing SD DVD's. It may not seem like a big deal but it really is a nice feature. The picture quality is really quite nice, all things considered. I stream HBO, Amazon, Voodoo and Netflix as well as content from Sling TV. I also have all of my Blu-Rays ripped to my computer and stream those through Roku/Plex as well. I wouldn't build a home theater system around this TV but that is only because of its size. If I was stuck in a 10 foot square and this was it I would be more than happy to have this as a main source of viewing. I don't give out 5 star ratings unless I'm totally blown away by something, hence the 4 stars. It's a great little TV and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a solid viewing experience in a small space. I would give it 4.5 stars if I could. I try to watch a lot of different content before posting a review and focus on content I'm familiar with. This TV will not disappoint. One side note for people looking for super cheap TV's...don't buy anything that doesn't have a good four to six months worth of reviews. It's just not worth it. I'm talking to you, Black Friday type shoppers.

    Very Nice TV

    Don,t be put off by the price thinking it is too cheap to be any good. Sure there are better looking TVs of this size with better picture quality however for the money it can't be to beat. And sure there are cheaper tvs in places like K-mart,with names you never heard of, but picture quality doesn't come close. This tv has an really amazing picture for the money. If you are looking for a TV for the a bed room or a extra room this one should be on your short list . This set was purchased as a gift for my sister. She could not be happier. She said, when people come over they often ask,"what kind of TV is that, what a Samsung?" Also don't be put off by the brand name. This is 2nd TV of this brand I've purchased from Best Buy. Bought a 19 " for myself to mount on a kitchen wall , replacing a 32" Samsung (Samsung which was really too big for the look I was tring to achieve ) Not disappointed looks great. The tv is turned on and off maybe 15 times a day had it over 2 years no problems. Believe me this is the perfect gift that doesn"t break the bank but will really be appreciated by the person that receives it. It is a really a nice 40" 1080 basic TV. Go to Best Buy look at one and you will agree you just don't have to spent a ton of money any more to get a good tv with a clear picture with deep contrast. If you think the picture is so so after seeing the tv in the store its because of the other really hi end tvs you'll see at best on the way to the display of this tv. It's called markieting. This set really shines when you get it home It is easy a 4 1/2 stars. Did I mention for the money it is a excellent value? Please don't judge this review by my subject verb aggrement just look at the content, I'm a more of a listener than a talker and I just woke up from a nap :-). It's spot on. Watch for it they go on sale quite freqently.

    Excellent quality and value

    Posted .

    This is my second Insignia flat screen TV purchase. The first one has been incredibly reliable and continues to be used on a daily basis. When you compare the features of Insignia TVs to brand name competitors, you will find the Insignia product often times have more HDMI connecting ports as well a better performance specifications. This 40" was on the daily deal for $179.99 and I didn't hesitate to pick it up at this amazing price. The picture is crystal clear and it was very easy to set up. The menu is very easy to navigate. The only downside is the feet they now provide on all flat screens no matter what brand. I miss the center mounted pedestals that all TVs had up to this point. I'm not sure why this is a trend now. Maybe a safety thing? In any case don't hesitate to buy this great TV. It is a winner!

    Great TV for great price

    Posted .

    Have bought multiple Insignia LED TV's from Best Buy before and this one has the largest screen of them all. The picture quality and sound are very good and the TV is easy to set up. The price is great. It has 3 HDMI ports (which should be the bare minimum for any new TV). I use it for both cable and over-the-air (OTA) TV. The tuner for receiving TV signals with an antenna is good and it finds all the channels in my area, but the TV does not have a program guide for OTA signals. The signal strength indicator is basic (only shows 0%, 25%, 50%, 75% or 100%). You cannot add any channels manually (only auto-search which erases all old channel data). Other negative for me is that the remote with this TV is smaller with less buttons those for my older Insignia TVs. Especially miss the 'favorites' button for the OTA channels since I use it a lot to switch OTA channels more easily. Luckily I found out that I can use the remote from my older Insignia TV's so I just ordered an extra one of that model remote online. All in all, (especially now with the older model remote) I am very happy with this TV. I give it 4 out of 5 stars. Would give it an extra star if it had a program guide for OTA signals, better signal indicator, a function to manually add channels, a way to preserve previously found channels during an auto-search and a better remote with more functions (the older model remote is just fine).

    Wonderful TV!

    Posted .

    Got this for the sale price of $200. What a steal of a deal. I am thoroughly satisfied with this TV. The picture clarity and color surpoasses what I had hoped for. I don't give a hoot nor a holler if it is a house brand for Best Buy. You may or may not get a sharper picture/better color rendition on a well known name brand TV but you will pay several hundred dollars more. For the price I paid coupled with the great picture I would highly recommend this TV to anyone. The sound is adequate-not bad and not mind blowing. I also purchased the Insignia sound bar and that brings a more movie theater like feel to the entire experience. Also purchased the 5yr extended warranty for the TV for a very reasonable price just to be on the safe side. I can't imagine that anyone would not be happy with this product not only for the price point but also for the way it performs. It is definitely a winner!

    Excellent value!

    I was able to get this 40" Insignia HDTV for about $229 new in the box! It gets more stations than my old set, even with the same antenna hookup. Insignia is considered a bargain brand, but this one seems to outperform other brands that are well respected, and at a much better price. It also has better features than some of the others that I considered too. It's a great way to get antenna TV for those budget conscious cord cutters that want to save by getting rid of cable or dish.
