our Verdict

This Insignia LED TV has enough features for casual TV watchers. It offers rich color detail, good viewing angles, and okay motion handling. But if you’re a movie enthusiast, you might not be satisfied with the lack of 4K support, no access to the Internet, inability to process HDR content, mediocre sound, and hazy black levels. Gamers should look elsewhere, as this TV doesn’t have HDMI 2.1 ports or VRR support. If you’re a PC user who just needs a screen for work, the Konka H3 Series is a better choice.
