Insignia NS-32LB451A11 Review » Key Feature Ratings
Price The cost of this LCD TV is $17 per inch of screen size. This is less expensive than average and is priced in the bottom 30% of new TVs.
ENERGY STAR ENERGY STAR qualified. This HDTV uses about 40% less electricity than standard televisions.
Efficiency Estimated annual energy use is 4.4 kWh per inch of screen size. This TV is ENERGY STAR, but it is less efficient than your average ENERGY STAR TV.
Design Incorporates 6 key design features that make a difference. This HDTV has an average number of key features.
Best-Seller This TV is not a top best-seller at a national store including Amazon, Best Buy, Sears, and Wal-Mart. – Insignia NS-32LB451A11 Review
Resolution Designed with 1080p resolution, the highest definition available. Provides nearly twice the resolution of 720p, and allows you to fully utilize 1080p videos or programming.
Side Inputs Includes side inputs that allow you to conveniently plug-in some devices without having to reach behind the TV.
LED Does not incorporate LED backlighting. LED technology is more expensive, but it saves on energy and allows the TV to be significantly thinner.
Local Dim Local dimming technology is only available on LCD televisions with LED backlighting.
Frame Rate Uses a standard 60 Hz (60 frames per second) which is adequate for many programs and movies, but you may experience slight motion blur during fast action scenes.
THX Like most HDTVs, this is not THX certified. THX certification generally indicates that the TV will have high-quality picture performance. – Insignia NS-32LB451A11 Review
DLNA Not DLNA certified (Digital Living Network Alliance). DLNA promotes interoperability between electronic devices, which makes sharing digital content easier and more convenient.
3D This Insignia television is not 3D ready. 3D TVs allow you to view 3D content from select video games, Blu-ray discs, and programming, but are much more expensive.
Wi-Fi Wi-Fi capable with either a built-in receiver or external adaptor. Allows you to wirelessly tap into your home wireless internet service instead of using ethernet cables.
Internet You can access internet videos and streaming content via widgets and applications. A wide variety of internet content is available, but you don’t have browser search capability.
DVD Player Includes a built-in Blu-ray disc and DVD player. Blu-ray offers high image quality with 1080p resolution so that you can make the best use of your high-definition TV.
Depth This TV is thicker than average with a depth of 4″. If you plan to mount it on the wall, you may consider a thinner model. – Insignia NS-32LB451A11 Review
Frame Standard, multiple-level design with some space between the screen and the bezel. Single-level designs can provide a seamless look that is preferred by some consumers.
Speakers Speakers provide 20 watts of total output power, which is about average. – Insignia NS-32LB451A11 Review
HDMI Provides 3 HDMI inputs so that you can connect a cable box and two other devices such as a DVD player and video game console. Do you need to connect a PC as well?
