    TV is good except...

    Posted
    Jonny5

    ...I've had this tv for about 2 years, and the other day the menu screen started popping up on its own. This started happening more frequently until finally I couldn't get it to go away. I ruled out the remote as a problem, and when I researched it I found out this is a very common problem with insignia TVs. The physical buttons on the tv set (as opposed to the remote) were acting up. I took the tv apart, removed the circuit board for the tv buttons, cleaned them, and reinstalled. This fixed the problem for a couple days, but then the input menu started popping up and continuously scrolling. It would either do that, or the volume would crank up to 100 by itself. I opened the tv again and just disconnected the circuit board to the buttons. Now the TV works great, but it can only be operated with the remote. That's fine with me, I never used the buttons on the TV anyways. So if you buy an insignia TV (it's cheap and has a good picture, so I wouldn't advise against it), and this problem happens (which from what I've read, there's a decent chance it will after about 2 years), this is an easy free fix. This is the only problem I've had, other than that the tv is great. It's cheap, so remember you get what you pay for. If you're mechanically/electrically inclined, this is a non-problem and worth saving hundreds of dollars not buying a more expensive tv.

    Fantastic TV for the price

    As others have noted, you may be getting a 1080i TV instead of the 720 that's listed: that's what I got. VERY bright, you might want to turn it down a little. I'll join the seemingly somewhat common complaint that even at max volume, the volume is a little low. When I watch something with my wife, it's normally at 80+ on a 0-100 scale. Sadly my A/V receiver died and I haven't had the time to swap in my older one yet, so I can't run my DVDs through my B&W speakers right now and get REAL volume with movies. I bought this TV two weeks ago just before I had surgery as I knew I'd be laid up for a couple of weeks. The TV it replaced could not play HDMI material without problems, and the price of this one was amazing. I could not have asked for a better deal. Aside from the volume, I do have a minor complaint. If you have an Apple TV connected and you turn in the ATV, the TV is smart enough to sense signal on that HDMI port and turn itself on (remember to program your ATV to control the Insignia's volume, it's easy). And when you tell the ATV to go to sleep, the Insignia turns itself off. Bueno. But if I turn on my DVD/Blueray player on the other port? The TV doesn't turn itself on. Granted, the Panasonic player is a bit older. Also, the input select menu doesn't let you select an HDMI port that doesn't have signal, so if you're planning on watching a DVD after watching something on the other port, you have to make sure your player is powered up before changing the source. The remote is quite nice, no complaints there. And the TV will turn itself off in about 13 minutes after you turn off your HDMI source. Finally, I'm not to keen on one aspect of its physical design. I don't like the two spindly legs on each side of the TV, I much prefer the style of a large pedestal foot in the center. I don't have a lot of room where I have my TV, and it makes me very paranoid when I have to pivot it out to do anything with the cables. With the big central foot, I knew exactly where I was in relation to the edge, with those tiny little feet, I'm very paranoid about the TV falling off the shelf. But I do love this TV. Highly recommended. Great for a 10' viewing distance, very lightweight.

    Dead Pixel Paradise

    I was really looking forward to having a larger TV in my bedroom for a next to nothing price, but as the saying goes, "you get what you pay for." Which is exactly the story for this television. Purchased the TV yesterday and put it up today. Went through the configuration of setting everything up and the picture was fine. Switched over to satellite to configure the picture and one pixel after another started turning red. This happened until I had a red line going through the middle of screen horizontally. Thought maybe my HDMI cable was not plugged in securely, nope wasn't that. Thought maybe it was the satellite box, so I switched to the blue ray player. To my surprise, the red line was still there and other pixels began dying. At this point I decided to turn off the TV and let it sit for a few. Turned the TV back on and things started looking ok, but as soon as I thought things were good, pixels began dying again. So, as much I would love to give a good rating here, I cannot. I understand I purchased a less than quality TV, but I really thought the picture would last longer than 15 seconds. Taking the TV back today and going with a name brand model. Sorry Insignia, I really wanted to like you.

    Perfect Television for the Price

    I have a few of these TV's installed in my outdoor living area, I chose the less expensive Insignia 39" TV because I was worried that with the TV's being installed outside that they may get ruined by the weather and I didn't want to spend a lot of money on what could wind up being a disposable TV. I installed them near a 65" D Series 4k Vizio to create an at home sports bar feeling where I can watch multiple games simultaneously on Football Sundays. The difference between the Insignia TV's and the 4k TV when watching Sporting Events is negligible and the Picture Quality for watching Sports is perfectly fine for a 39" Television. They have been installed and exposed to the elements now for over 6 months and I have determined that the TV's are protected from the Elements. Even though I now know that there is no risk of damage from the weather and that I can use any Model of TV that I want, I have decided NOT to replace them because these Insignia TV's have far exceeded my expectations of what I would be getting for the price.

    I bought this set for the bedroom where it is rarely used - but I wanted something that 1) could be used for occasional use and 2) was narrow enough to fit in a 36" wide space in my armoire. Most 40" sets are a hair too wide, but this fits and was a major plus for me. While it is a 720P set the picture is actually quite sharp when using it for normal viewing. It may fall short as a computer monitor, but I am not using it for that. There are plenty of inputs, including enough HDMI for the BluRay player and a Fire TV and also analog audio output for headphones or basic powered speakers such as PC speakers for improved sound. However to my surprise, the sound is not bad in a small room. One key feature I like is the ability to adjust the video settings for each input including small details like aspect ratio and various fine tune settings such as noise reduction and the like. I have had many lower cost sets that did not have these settings to begin with, and when they were included they were going to be the same for all inputs. Here they can be memorized for each input.

    I was replacing an older 32" Toshiba in our bedroom and wanted something a little larger. Was able to purchase this 39" Insignia on sale and so far it functions just fine. Not a lot of inputs/outputs, but enough for our bedroom use. Had to adjust the color some to tone down the over-saturated skin tones. Picture looks very good considering the price point paid. Only negative is the poor sound volume and quality. But truthfully, I have not heard any current Flat-Panel HDTV's who's speakers provide anything more than something temporary to use until you connect a decent sound bar. In this case, I am using an older stereo receiver, with a pair of book shelf speakers, connected to the headphone out jack. Gets the job done just fine. Bottom Line: A decent entry level 720P HDTV considering the entry level price point, when used for a bedroom TV.

    GREAT TV FOR THE PRICE

    Back in 1965, a family down the street was proudly showing off what was then the largest color television sold. It cost more than many new cars. The Insignia's 39 inch screen is both larger and sharper than the best tv of that era, at a tiny fraction of the price. The Insignia's picture looks great when you sit directly in front of the screen. At an angle, the colors wash out. Voices sound full and natural after using the audio menu to add both bass and treble. The volume gets just loud enough for a dorm room or a bedroom, but in a living room you will need to plug in a powered speaker to get room filling volume. It is the perfect bedroom or dorm television and would be fine in a small condo or apartment as the primary television. Our living room television is twice the size of the Insignia and cost five times its price but I am happy to do most of my tv viewing with the Insignia.

    IT incenses me that TV manufacturers have for some un-known reason, gotten away fro the center, round swivel TV base that was so practical for two major reasons; 1- it enabled for a simple swivel making the TV visible from so many varying positions within a room and 2- enabled the TV to fit on some many more surfaces. Given that these newer TV's have spread legs seriously limiting the stands in which they can be placed, shame on the TV manufacturers. This TV* has a 26.5" leg width which is better than most and which allowed me to buy it. Everything else about it is excellent as well. *Insignia™ - 39" Class - LED - 720p - HDTV

    This is a basic tv. Very good for bedroom or den. It is easy to set up has a very good picture with good color and has no additional bells and whistles that would be a hindrance to your cable controller. I easily paired it with my Xfinity controller and it does everything. It is not a smart tv but if you need that just add a cheap roku or google etc for a few bucks. I like the color and the picture quality but the sound is soft. Plenty of volume for a bedroom or small apartment but not for a big area. Sound quality is good volume is a bit weak. Nevertheless 5 stars because of value for money and general quality. A super price too.

    I rent audio visual equipment for a living. I move these types units around in their original packing and find them very road worthy. Despite their low cost in comparison to professional monitors I have used them with multiple major corporate customers with zero complaints. In the 20 units I’ve owned only one failed and was quickly replaced by the nearest store to my customers location. I can’t beat the light weight and simplicity to deploying these units. Very pleased and will continue buying this product!

    Ever since we put in a pool and spa, my morning ritual is to have my spa turn on at 4 am and I'm in it by 4:20. I have YouTube TV and a Chromecast, so I needed a TV for my spa. Since I've already destroyed 2 TVs over the past 3 months (1 I hit with an errant football throw and cracked the screen. 2nd the wind blew it into my spa. Seriously I had to fish it out by it's cord. Was funny if it wasn't a waste of $180), I wasn't looking for anything super fancy or high rez. So for a 39" TV 720P mainly outdoors for $130, it works perfectly. It's not too glossy for when the sun is out for the glare.

    This TV was an upgrade to a large 32” CRT in a large bedroom. The on sale price point made the timing perfect. The smart sister unit was not needed because it was being used with a Verizon STB and a signal limit of 480. It was paired with an Android TV box with an output signal of 1080. To complete the theatre effect the Insignia 2.0 Channel Soundbar (NS-SB216) was added. The only sound issue noted was the inability to program the FiOS hand controller for volume. The issue was not with the TV but the Verizon equipment. A work around was found on the Internet. Overall perfect setup.

    Volume is a HUGE issue

    I was given this TV by mistake when I went in to buy another Insignia tv. I did't realize it was the wrong one until I had it all set up. I was disappointed in the picture until I realized they had given me a 720 rather than 1080 tv I requested, so I'm OK with the picture as a 720 set. The volume however is a big issue - I don't think you should HAVE to buy a soundbar to get basic sound you can hear from the couch which is about 5 feet away from the tv in. small bedroom. Even if this had been the actual tv I asked for I would have returned it due to the volume issue.

    I bought this for my production studio. I needed something larger to relieve eye strain and other body ailments caused by viewing anything on a screen smaller than 17" (inches). It works well when working in a digital audio workstation, especially when using virtual sliders and knobs, and while performing precision automation tasks on individual tracks. This was very affordable and I would recommend it for anyone working in the same profession, no matter the skill level. This was a very budget friendly purchase and I will seek this brand out in the future as long as it remains budget friendly.

    Picture quality isn't as good as the name-brand TVs that cost 2-10x as much, but it's better than other TVs I've seen in this price range. What surprised me most was the sound quality. Bass is powerful, range is great, and there's plenty of volume to fill a room. It won't beat a proper sound system, but it's a huge improvement from my last TV and good enough I've started listening to music with it. The glow-in-the-dark buttons on the remote are a nice touch too.

    This is my 1st big screen TV. The picture is great. I have learned since our TV's have changed to flat screen some of our channels on most TV's the sounds can be lower. I will invest in a sound bar. I wish the companies that make TV's would include a package that has a sound bar in them as a option so I don't have to figure out that I will also have to buy a cord to connect it with... Whew all the decisions that baby boomer's have to learn about that I wish I didn't have to learn.

    I purchased this TV for my parents for their spare room. The quality of the TV exceeded all expectations. I got it for a great price and couldn't be more pleased. They love the TV and it suits their needs. Not a smart TV, but they have a Roku player so it's fine. I think the picture quality and sound is better than their Living Room TV that cost almost $300 more. The sound is definitely better... Will purchase another set for my spare room.

    Very good tv for the price. I'm completely happy with it. I had a bedroom rca 1080p tv that decided to stop working and wanted to find a replacement and didn't want to pay a lot. This one fit the bill. This one is a lot smaller but prefect for my bedroom. Very light easy to hook up and we'll worth the money. I'll be coming back to best buy another tv around tax time

    Bought this TV recently on a whim and I am not disappointed at all! Threw in a Roku with it and have an amazing viewing eperience! The specs say 720p at 60Hz but my Roku detected it as 1080p at 60Hz and so does my PS4 so score! Sound is decent and gets pretty loud, perfect for a small bedroom or smaller living room. Colors are great although I can’t speak for bright sunlight performance, it does handle some sunlight extremely well.

    Traded this TV in for the 1080p version, for only $50 more. There was hardly a distinction on the box that indicated the TV was 720p in the first place, and I don't know why anyone would want to buy a blurry 720p television, anymore; especially considering that the 720p version is not even a Smart TV. For $50 more, just go ahead and get the 1080p Smart TV. Furthermore, I tried to write a positive review for the 1080p version, but for some reason the system will only allow a review for this one.
