Welcome to a review of the Insignia D310NA15 LED 720p 60Hz HDTV Series. There are 3 different sizes in this series, the 28, 32 and 39 inch screens. If you are in the market for a low budget TV for a guest room, office or kitchen space, this model will fit the bill. It is compact and light weight, with a streamlined design, sure to please. Set-up is easy with detailed instructions and menus in English, Spanish and French. Outfitted with 2 HDMI inputs, 1 USB input, an audio out, coaxial digital output and more, you have plenty of different options for connecting necessary equipment such as a Blu-ray or DVD player, cable box, gaming console, AV home theater receiver, external speakers, headphones and more. The user friendly manual will help best guide you on how to set up your system. The MHL input allows you to connect a Smartphone or tablet to stream videos, pictures and music, but the purchase of a MHL cable is needed. With the addition of a Roku stick, connected to the MHL input, the variety of channels available to you increases dramatically. You will have access to thousands of channels including Netflix, HBO GO, Hulu Plus, Pandora, and Amazon Instant Video, to name just a few.

The remote control is simple and easy to use. With the click of one button, the menu button, you can change your settings and place your TV in “game mode” for example, and the TV will be optimized with the best settings for game play to enhance your gaming experience. The part number for the remote control is NS-RC4NA-14.

With 720p high definition, you can enjoy realistic, images with vibrant color and clarity. The contrast ratio of the 3 different sizes is different, all according to screen size. The larger the screen, the higher the contrast ratio. The contrast ratio aids in defining the contrast between the light and dark areas of the screen to further enhance picture quality excellence. The 28 inch screen has 8 watts total power in the 2 speakers while the 32 and 39 inch screens both have 10 watts total power in the 2 speakers. They are all equipped with DTS Sound Technology to deliver crisp, clear, natural sound with deep, booming bass. Generally speaking, most flat panel screens audio output is adequate but not the absolute best in sound quality. However, with all the connections available, you can simply attach a soundbar, external speakers or a home entertainment system to boost the sound and make it more like the sound you enjoy in a movie theater. This series delivers excellent performance and the price is right, definitely worth looking into.

Welcome to a review of the JVC LT-42EM73 42 inch 1080p 60Hz LED-LCD HDTV. Looking for a large screen TV that has plenty of features, high definition resolution and a low price tag? This model by JVC, although not a Smart TV, has the most important features necessary to enjoy TV viewing with excellent performance. This large screen TV has a very slim design, with clean lines, and is easily placed on a stand or mounted on the wall. With wide viewing angles, you can watch TV from almost any vantage point in the room. Equipped with 2 HDMI ports and 1 USB port, there are plenty of options for connecting external equipment. A VGA port is available for connection to a PC for those wanting to use the large screen as a monitor. There is also a headphone output to listen to the TV or music without disturbing others.

The part number for the remote control is RM-C1240.

With 1080p high definition resolution and a 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, you will enjoy stunning picture quality with clarity, vibrant colors and enhanced contrast ratio.

This model has 2 built-in speakers, each with 8 watts capacity. Although perfectly suitable for TV watching, to achieve surround sound like a movie theater, most users will connect a soundbar or receiver to enhance the sound and deliver more clean, crisp sound with more depth and clarity.

The other 2 models, the 40 inch and the 48 inch screen TVs both have 60Hz. Each model has 2, 10 watt speakers, and while the sound is ok, as is customary with most thin, flat panel TVs, most users prefer to add a soundbar or receiver to create a true home theater system to enjoy movie viewing at its finest.
