    decent camera, a little disappointed for the cost

    i have searched high and low for a good point and shoot that has a little more advanced group of settings. after playing with, buying and returning, and reading reviews of/for a handful of cameras i landed on this one. while my purchase was not hasty, i had become weary on my search and was running out of time to replace my broken camera before an international trip. the camera i actually wanted was the same brand and a similar, but different model, but i couldn't have it before i left, so i kind of settled here. the settings are great, the ease of use is fantastic and so far i have not had any issues with battery life. i have not been able to test the waterproofing beyond torrential rain thus far though. my biggest - i guess my only, so far - complaint is that while the pictures look fantastic on the camera, they lose a lot of quality when transferred to a computer. i had reviewed my photos on the camera on the plane ride home and thought i had some great printable ones. to my dismay, when i opened them on my computer i didn't have a single print-worthy photo; the clarity was reduced 5-fold and the light capture was much different. i am not an advanced photographer, but i travel a lot, so have a lot of practice. perhaps my issues are due to my shortcomings, but my husband, who is rather advanced in photography - both film and digital - tends to agree with my finding. overall, i would say this is a good scrap booking camera. a great step up from entry level, and is so far functional to my liking. perhaps, if you are similar minded, you may want to just spend a little more money on something a little higher end.

    Great cable, but the packaging....

    I had to purchase a new cable for my daughter's iPhone 7. I would have preferred to spend a few extra dollars and get the Insignia 6' cable. However, since I don't own/use an Apple products, I wasn't sure if the 6' cable would work. You see, the packaging for the Insignia 6' listed Apple products up to the iPhone 6, while the Insignia 4' packaging listed the iPhone 7. Because I live twenty miles from my Best Buy, I didn't want to purchase the wrong cable, and the associate I worked with at the store wasn't very helpful. Let me be clear, the CABLE works great. I would rate the cable as 5 stars. However, the experience of purchasing this cable removes one star. This was a rare time that I did not have a positive experience at a Best Buy.

    Great for my son, who is HARD on cables.

    So, my eight year old loves his tablet, but is extremely hard on headphones. We've destroyed kid headphones, adult headphones, cheap headphones, spendy headphones... These went on sale, so we figured we'd try headphones without cables. BINGO. My son loves them, the sound quality is fine for his tablet uses and music sounded great to me, but I'm not a super audophile. The volume was good, the charge has lasted him a reasonable long day of road tripping, I have no complaints. These are basic, but some of the little things like the magnets that retain the earbuds inside the body of the headset while not in use are nice. I may score a pair of these for myself, but I just prefer over-the-ear phones to earbuds. Overall, I think these were right on the mark, and if they last - they were well worth the money.

    Purchasing oem lightning cables is always a hit or miss prospect. These were offered as a 5-pack for $29.99 which is a great deal. The price made me suspect about the quality so I was surprised to see they were (MFi) certified. The cables have a quality feel to them and work with both Apple chargers and Oem chargers. The cable is bit stiffer than the original apple lightning cable but It's not overly stiff. The connectors appear to be quality and are not over sized like some other oem lightning cables I have seen. I am glad that I picked up the 5-pack as it gives me a few spares which always comes in handy with teenagers. If you need a replacement or extra MFi certified lightning cable this is a great option at the price.

    Right Length, But Didn't Fit Lifeproof Case

    While Apple cables suffer from being too short (1m) or too long (2m) for many applications, this cable seemed like it would be just right for use in a car or night stand. It was right next to the Lifeproof case that was also purchased at the same time. As it turns out, that particular case, in trying to be waterproof only allows a narrow Lightning cable to pass through the hole for the connector. This cable didn't fit. Only Apple cables would fit, since their connector is the thinnest on the market. I would have preferred to keep this cable, but I had to return it to get the only brand that would work for the case, so now I have the too-long 2m Apple cable. If I had a different case or didn't have a case, I would have kept this cable.

    Better than OEM.

    My fiance got this as a replacement cable, and it seems sturdier than the original OEM included with iPhone 5 purchase. It works great when connected to any USB outlet adapter OEM or other brand (we have a generic double USB port car charger, and single port plug-in Belkin, and Apple charger). Color is black as pictured, which is a minor change. Cord length is approximately 1in longer than standard OEM USB cable, but not long enough to cause worry over getting a short in the cable. Other than the "Insignia" logo stamped near the lightning adapter, the cable looks rather bland / generic, which could be useful when travelling (especially overseas). as thieves wouldn't necessarily know what type of device the cable belongs to.

    This TV was purchased to replace a 37" LCD Toshiba flat screen that abruptly died the other day. I only needed a slightly bigger screen for my mancave so this was perfect. The price was right. I have only had it for 2 days but first impressions are it is an excellent upgrade. Definite pluses are: - It weighs about 1/3 of what my old TV did at just over 16lbs. I couldn't believe how light it was. - Smart TV features. I had to use a Roku 3 with the old one but now all of those features are built in. - Speakers - much better built in speakers - Integrated Sony features. It is much easier to work with my PS3 since they are both Sony products - Picture quality

    Great for 6-7 Months

    This cord is very affordable and words great for about 6-7 months. It unfortunately does not last much longer after that because I have returned this product to the store for a replacement a few times. When the cord is manipulated, the power often stops working (this is at the end of the cord lifetime). The good thing about this product is that it is a product of Best Buy so they are able to replace the cord every time it breaks. All cords break eventually, but this one is great because as long as you return it within 1 year of purchase, you can get a replacement cord. For this reason, I continue to repurchase this product.

    Better than the extremely inexpensive Amazon cords

    I've owned probably 100 charging cords in the last 10 years - I keep them everywhere in the house. A good number of them were purchased online costing $10 or so for 3 very long cords. I needed this one in a pinch on vacation and after using it - I've noticed my phone actually charges about 10 times as fast as with the cheap cords. I'm guessing the cheap ones just aren't to spec, certainly not Apple certified. I still think $10+ for a short cord is overkill, so it doesn't earn the last star, but it is certainly great cord that does what it should.

    Cable but its not apple and that matters

    For those of you who are like me and put your cables through the daily abuse be aware that when you're getting a new one some things matter and some things don't. I went through both my apple cables and needed a new one ASAP so I picked this one up only to find that it didn't work with my Otter case. So in order to charge my phone I have to remove the case first. Annoying to say the least. Other than that complaint I was happy with the length and utility of the cord. Besides its less than sleek phone plug which didn't fit in my case, it was exactly like an apple cord. If you don't have a case on your iPhone then you don't need to worry!

    Great Lighting Cable!!!

    I have purchased my fair share of lighting cables for my iPhone and I think the Insignia - 4' Lightning Charge-and-Sync Cable - White is excellent. The Apple brand lighting cable that comes with your Apple devices is good but the added length of the Insignia one is helpful and the cord material does not lend itself to getting torn/cut as easily as the Apple brand does. The only issue I have had with the Insignia cable is that when I have it plugged into my iPhone to charge in my car AND I have an audio cable plugged into it for sound, there is a bad audio feedback. I have not noticed this with my Apple brand cable.

    Great charger so far

    I have had IPod, iPad and now iPhones. The original iPod ipad chargers were great no problems, but the lighting chargers constantly stop working. This is my 6th new lightning charger in 2 years I find that ridiculous because they aren't cheap. I have tried a dollar store one and it worked for a week, so I have bought 5 Apple chargers. This is the first insignia charger I have purchased and have high hopes that it will be better than Apple's. I think it is just another way Apple is just finding to continue to make money off us consumers. If Insignia's works longer they have my future business.

    Replacement charging cable for iPad/iPhone

    Our charging cable for one of our iPads wore out, so we tried this replacement, not from Apple but from a 3rd party, and were very pleased how sturdy it is. Is seems much more durable than the original cable, so we expect it to outlast that cable. The nice thing: this cable was $5 less expensive than a replacement from Apple. This is the 2nd cable we've replaced, using this 3rd party cable, and both are still in great shape. A good buy and we do recommend this cable when your iPad or iPod cable needs to be replaced.

    After forgetting my charger on a road trip I stopped by a local Best buy and was amazed at how many different chargers there were for my phone. Trying to decide which one was the best a Best Buy associate recommend and suggested this one because it came with a lifetime guarantee and free replacement if it stopped working at no charge and that buying one from an IPhone Apple wouldn't. This charger just made perfect sense and works perfectly.

    Excellent length but needs a design change

    Having a 4 foot(48") charging cable is nice because Apple cables are only 39" long. Price is also feasible. Quality of cord is thicker than Apple's and seems to be more durable. One major issue is the size of the plug "body" that goes into the phone.....THIS CHARGER WILL NOT WORK WITH LIFEPROOF PHONE CASES...... As the plug "body" that goes into the phone is too large to fit thru the port in the case for IPhone 6 or 6 PLUS. Gave this to my son, because it will work with iPhone 5 LIFEPROOF cases.

    Decent cord, easily degraded, top-class company

    I had to return this product after 4 months of use. The cord was degraded, showed signs of wear, and eventually would not hold a charge with my phone. I called the company and they handled the situation really well, i'm impressed and very pleased. I was able to exchange it at my near-by Best Buy, and get a brand new one under Insignia's limited warranty. I would still stick with the apple stock charger if you can, but Insignia is a great company and I am overall pleased!

    I purchased this cable after other cables I bought elsewhere failed a coupld weeks after purchase. These are more expensive than the other cheap after market cables but these are guaranteed by Best Buy for a year. The only issue I ran into was 1 cable doesn't interact with my Ram 1500 Media USB as the other does. Granted the Ram system is flakey but there's definitely a difference. If not for this minor issue I would have given the cables 5 stars. But this product. Definitely worth it.

    okay choice but did not fit in my Lifeproof case

    I purchased this cable when I got my iPhone 6 and got a Lifeproof case at the same time. Although the cable was certified by Apple as "For iPhone" meaning it matches company specifications, the Lightning connector end is a bit fatter than the cable that came with the iPhone. So the cable is NOT useable with the Lifeproof case since it does not fit in the charge port and removing the case to charge is not an option. It also does not fit my wife's Lifeproof Nüd case for her iPhone 5S.

    First of all, it's white! I mean, a lot of cables are white, but this baby? It's pure white like a unicorn wearing goose down in the new fallen snow. Also, and I don't mean to be vulgar here, it charges the HECK out of my phone. That thing goes from 60% or 70% to 100% EVERY TIME! Did I mention that it's white? Seriously, run -- don't walk -- down to Best Buy and pick up one of these cables. You have no idea how incomplete and empty your life is without one. Oh, by the way, it's white.

    It's a cable, it works. There are a few differences from Apple's cable. It is longer (nice) but the cable is stiffer (not so nice, but no biggie). The plastic molded around the Lightning connector is larger than that of Apple's connector at 5.5 mm by 9.4 mm compared to 4.8 mm by 7.6 mm for Apple's. If you use a case on your device check that the clearance around the Lightning receptacle is large enough. All in all it is fine if you need a second cable.
