Deal Details

Yes, I know there are a million Best Buy clearance threads today, and they are for TVs, but I think this one is actually a good deal for a 42" LED TV. Reviews are 4.2/5 stars (12 reviews) on Best Buy's website. I just jumped on it online for store pickup. Obviously, YMMV as with all B&M/clearance deals, but worth a shot.

**Edit: don't forget 5% cash back with Chase until 12/31/2012**

Picked one up at Clarence, NY last night. I did not inquire if they had any more.
So did I, they had a few left they said!

Anyone getting backlight bleeding on the edges? Is this normal?
I have a tiny bit, but it's very very minimal IMO.

Quote from larken View Post :
This TV only has 160 degree viewing angles according to here:
http://www.insigniaproducts.com/c...l%20lr.pdf

Is this true? That indicates TN panel but I doubt they made them at 42".
Viewing angle seems perfectly fine to me... I can stand directly above the TV and look down, and still see the picture relatively clearly.

Try a few Samsung codes

thanks for the idea, the Samsung codes didn't work, but I forgot to look under the more codes option under Insignia, code 12049 worked great, I have volume, power, and input controls, and when I press the DTV &TV on and off buttons they work with both devices at the same time.

Best deal I've seen since the Seiko 47" for $350, I'd say go for it if you are planning on getting a ~40" and don't mind the 3d.

Just got the HD settop with HDMI. Popping sound and sound issues have disappeared. Backlight bleed doesn't seem as bad, but can't really tell. Screen looks good. Think this is a keeper.

Don't know it's here: Firmware [insigniaproducts.com]

It says "Fixes overscan not saving issue"

But i'm not sure if there were any previous firmware updates that changed anything or if this is the only one.

Thanks OP for this thread. While I could not get the 42" Insignia in my area, BB had a 37" Dynex (720P) for $199. Picture quality is surprisingly good, sound quality is like an AM radio from 40 years ago.

If someone in the CA bay area bought more than one that they don't mind selling, I would be very interested - rather, I'm desperate bounce

Thanks Smilie
