Are Insignia LCD TV's any good?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
It seems like the Insignia LCD's are much cheaper AND don't cheat on the component/s-video in like the other brands in my price range. What I'm looking for a 50" 1080p LCD TV that has at least 2 component and 2 s-video AND can use all four inputs. On the other brands, they cheat and a component and s-video share one connection, so if you plug in a component, you can't use the s-video. Suggestions? I'm trying to keep the price under $1500.

if you can, hit up a consumer report. Insignia is BestBuy's budget brand. I dont know if they're bad or not, but they seem alright

Under $1500? That's a pretty big budget for 50", you can go with pretty much anything short of those stupid overpriced LED ones.

Why don't you get something really worth that money like a Samsung LN52B630, and use one of these if you have problems?

If you are looking for a decent tv from BB, this is what I recommend. I got the 47" 240hz and it is great. It is still listed in the top 10 right up there with Samsung and Sony. Has a lot more features also.
