Pros & Cons

Pros

Awesome. I bought this for my kids room. At first I was upset upon taking it out the box because when I seen the power cord it reminded me of the power cords for boom boxes back in the 90's. To top that I could not find an insert for that plug. I was so frustrated I started to google where to find the plug in on the tv itself. My husband goes.. Whats wrong.. I said there is no plug in for the cord.. He sits down in front of the tv and I kid you not within 2 seconds he found the dam insert. Super calm n collected.. I had spent 15 minutes slowly looking at every part of the flippin tv. An he just finds it instantly. I was relieved and grateful If he hadn't been home I don't think that tv would be working right now. I would of put it back in the box! Super mad. Lbs. The tv is great. Beautiful picture great sound easy setup. The kids love it. Just note.. The plug in for the power cord is on your left of the tv, nestled in that box area.. The actual insert is inside of that at the top. If your anything like me.. And aren't used to looking that hard for a plug in.. You will be happy to know that ahead of time. 😊

Unbelievable what you get here for the money I paid! Now, sure.. there will be some oddly enraged people who will find something not perfect with this TV, but what seems to happen is that none of them actually paid any attention to how much they paid. 1. There is hardly ever a reason to rate any TV 0/1 stars if you paid $100 for it and it has a 32" color- (hell, LED!) screen, FireTV, a remote, WiFi, a frame and stand.... I could go on.. but I'll stop there. It wouldn't even matter if the TV doesn't turn on, and you had to return it to get a replacement, still at least 3 stars. 2. The TV is actually really nice!. After I switched the display settings to Movie and turned off all the edge enhancement and noise reduction shenanigans, the picture is wonderfully crisp (again.. keeping in mind that I paid $100, and it has only 720P resolution.. as stated in the description). 3. I absolutely LOVE the menu and "live pause" feature! It's way better than my $2K+ Samsung TV. Responsive, better remote, I can pause live TV! (OTA- Digital Antenna- Amazing reception) 4. Setup was a breeze, no problems.. zip.. nada. 5. It has three HDMI ports (+1 compared to my main TV) 6. It has a USB port that can power my amplified OTA Digital Antenna, how convenient is that? 7. It has a Optical Audio Out, which perfectly connected to my unused Sony soundbar, yay!.. yes, the out of the box sound, rather expectantly, sucks balls. 8. I had no issues at all to cast YouTube from my phone directly to the TV, super smooth, no stuttering or connectivity issues. Yeah.. so I love this TV already, which fits my personality.. as it was F'N $99 !!! C'mon man. Ridiculous. The FireTV stick alone costs half as much if I buy it by itself.

Buy it with a bit of advice to you. The tv took about 10 minutes to set up, then another 15 to do passwords and updates. The picture quality is great, and the sound is more than I expected. I am still getting used to the stereo quality. I am very happy with it. Here is an update: The audio was out of sync with the video. I looked online to find an answer, but what they had did not apply to this model. I called customer service and the fix was easy. Unplug the set, hold the power button down for 40 seconds, then plug it back in. Now sometimes the remote does not work as well, so here is that procedure: Turn off TV, remove the batteries from remote, push all buttons two time, put the batteries back, turn tv on, then hold the home button for 2 seconds. I don't know who comes up with this stuff, but that is the way to do it. I hope the web helps you to find this.

Cons

Horrible experience. I purchased my tv in March. It always acted kind of funny & made me reconnect to the WiFi every time I turned the tv back on. However about a month ago, (after only having the television for 2 months) the tv stopped responding to the remote entirely and would not connect to the WiFi at all, as this is a smart tv that means it does absolutely nothing. I went through all of the troubleshooting with BOTH the manufacturer and the seller. I have been trying to get it fixed for almost a entire month now. They sent me a new remote, they have sent me through every single trouble shooting and other step. Amazon told me I just contact the seller (Best Buy) and they tell me They won’t or can’t do anything and tell me to contact the manufacturer (Insignia). This product is supposed to have a 1 year manufacture warranty, I also have a 4 year protection plan. I am absolutely regretting ever purchasing this TV.... I have been put on hold and transferred back and forth between these companies who are both refusing any responsibility or decent customer service.

Buy only if directly connected to your router. This is my review of both the Insignia 32 inch smart Amazon Fire software that comes with theTV . Although I have only had the tv a few days,so far is has a good picture and excellent sound. However if you are think that this tv is going to operate on the internet wirelessly ,probably that ain’t going to happen because the software and the ability for it to discover wifi is horrible. I can stream movies any where in my house from my computer. My house has 3 floors. My router is on the top floor. This tells me that any connection issues are not the fault of my router. Before buying the Insignia I bought a Toshiba smart tv with the same Amazon fire software as the Insignia tv. Both tv’s were in the same room as the router. At first both tv’s had the same problems and the same error messages-no internet connection. I returned the Toshiba, at the advice of Toshiba tech support, After reading the reviews on the Toshiba, many of which had the same complaint, I then bought a Philips Roku tv which worked perfectly but had no browser and no ethernet. Finally I bought the Insignia; Result: same problem and same advice from Insignia tech support as from Toshiba. “Take it back to the store” Of course it took some hours of testing to finally diagnose the real problem. Finally once I hard wired the tv via ethernet it worked perfectly Bottom line: The tv is good so far but the software and tech components used to discover wi fi ,suck. Also do not depend on tech support for real answers. Unless you can connect the tv directly to your router ,DON’T BUY A FIRE TV.

Does not pair with tv. Remote does not pair up with tv and best buy customer service was very unhelpful in resolving the matter.

Get this on Amazon.
