Insignia NS-L26Q Review – 26-inch LCD HDTV

Originally Reviewed on June 13th, 2013

Up for Review: Insignia NS-L26Q 26 LCD HDTV.

The NS-L26Q is a small, yet incredible HDTV offering the best of what a TV of its size can offer. It comes in a relatively thick bezel and rightly justifies the value for money. The rounded base adds a beauty feature to the otherwise mediocre looking TV. The Insignia logo is etched at the base of the TV’s panel and looks extremely gorgeous. The TV comes in a matte black finished cabinet and has a stand that doesn’t swivel. Boasting a LCD display screen, the TV yet produces amazing pictures and breathtaking sound. The deep black panel of the TV also provides incredible contrast and minimized reflections so that you enjoy each single image with heightened clarity and color purity. The set is small but is no less than its brethrens in technical specifications. Add HD-capable antenna to receive over-the-air high-definition broadcasts, where available. Optional set-top box required for high-definition cable or satellite programming.

Attributed to this, the TV delivers a cinema-style entertainment experience. The 3:2 pulldown technology also accounts for the accurate reproduction of film-based sources. The set boasts high brightness (450 cd/m²) and incredible contrast ratio (2500:1) for an arresting viewing experience. Added to it, the wide 176° horizontal and vertical viewing angles of the TV makes every seat feel the best in the house. The 3D Y/C digital comb filter delivers state-of-the-art detail and color enhancement.

Not to forget mentioning about the sound features, two 5W stereo speakers come with a sound leveller to provide a lush soundscape. The TV has a unique ultraslim design (3-3/5″ deep) which makes the TV ideal for wall mounting (with optional mounting kit, not included). The PC video input at the rear end of the TV lets you connect your computer to experience high-resolution images. Two HDMI inputs provide an uncompressed all-digital audio/video link for the highest quality connection and they support copy-protected HD broadcast content. The set also includes 2 composite video (1 side, 1 rear), 1 S-video (1 rear), 1 component video (1 rear), 2 HDMI (1 side, 1 rear), 1 PC (rear) and 1 RF (rear). V-Chip parental controls give you the option of blocking undesirable material that you don’t want your kids to see. The TV is designed to use less energy and meets strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Department of Energy. Also added to these are some other useful additional features like trilingual (English, French and Spanish) menus, closed captioning, sleep timer, channel labelling and auto zoom technology. gives Insignia NS-L26Q 4/5 stars!
