Insignia NS-37L550A11 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.

Best-Seller This TV is not a top best-seller at a national store including Amazon, Best Buy, Sears, and Wal-Mart. – Insignia NS-37L550A11 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 Electronic inputs are not available on the side of the TV. Devices such as DVD players and video game players must be connected in the rear.
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 Employs blur reduction technology that increases the frame rate to 120 Hz (120 frames per second). The picture should be crisp and clear for sports and action movies.
THX Like most HDTVs, this is not THX certified. THX certification generally indicates that the TV will have high-quality picture performance. – Insignia NS-37L550A11 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 This Insignia HDTV is not Wi-Fi capable. You cannot wirelessly connect to your home-based internet network.
Internet Internet access is not available with this TV. You cannot view streaming internet videos, widgets, or applications that are available with many brands.
DVD Player Like most televisions, this Insignia TV does not have a built-in DVD or Blue-ray player. Most consumers purchase these items separately.
Depth This Insignia television has a thin profile with a depth of only 3.5″. Slim TVs are attractive and more suitable for wall mounting. – Insignia NS-37L550A11 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 are rated at 24 watts of total output power, which is less than average. – Insignia NS-37L550A11 Review
HDMI Provides 4 HDMI inputs so that you can connect a cable box and other devices such as a DVD player, video game console, and PC.
