Resolution Equipped with 720p high-definition resolution. While this is not the highest resolution available, it may be adequate on smaller TVs or if you don’t need to connect a PC.
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 LED technology is only available on LCD televisions. It is not designed for use on Plasma TVs.
Local Dim Local dimming technology is only available on LCD televisions with LED backlighting.
Frame Rate This TV has a 600 Hz sub-field drive. Plasma TVs have near instantaneous pixel response times and excellent viewing of fast moving video.
THX Like most HDTVs, this is not THX certified. THX certification generally indicates that the TV will have high-quality picture performance. – Insignia NS-42P650A11 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 2.8″. Slim TVs are attractive and more suitable for wall mounting. – Insignia NS-42P650A11 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-42P650A11 Review
HDMI Only 2 HDMI input(s) is available. One or two HDMI inputs may not be sufficient. Do you need to hook-up a cable box, video game console, DVD player, or PC?
