Insignia NS-L46X-10A Review: 46” LCD HDTV
Up for Review: Insignia NS-L46X-10A LCD TV. The audio is perhaps the most unique feature of this HDTV. With all the brands vying to provide the best in sound quality possible, Insignia revels by providing the Audyssey audio technology with SRS TruSurround HD. The result is a truly entertaining experience of a lifetime. The intelligent sound system can differentiate between the sound levels in every scene and automatically adjusts the sound so that you get a uniform audio and are oblivious of the fact that technology is doing the good job for you. There are two 12W speakers which provide a really electrifying sound effect.
This is a model from the Advanced series of Insignia and has quite a few features which were not present in the older models. The outer design is not much different though with an austere front bezel having the sole light blinking to indicate that the power is on. All the ports are either to the side or the rear of the TV. There is scope for mounting the TV on the wall and with the display of 46”, it is sure to look a good sight amid the pictures on the wall. Being Energy Star qualified makes it ideal for use in any home. It accounts for a substantial decrease in electricity bills.

The Insignia NS-L46X-10A has 1080p display resolution which is the best that any manufacturer can provide. It causes the pictures to be reproduced in the ultimate clarity and crispness. And with 120 Hz refresh rate, the pixels are bound to be replaced faster than any eye movement. This makes sure that there is no lagging in the scenes and the action scenes are a treat to watch. Be it the sword fight between the Jedi warriors in Star Wars or your favorite contestant in the Formula One championships; they will all fleet by without any artifacts affecting the scenario.
The connectivity is as usual very good. There are as many as 5 HDMI for connecting high definition devices. There is also a PC input which can be used to convert the HDTV into a computer monitor. The video quality is further optimized with 15,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. This makes sure that the black levels are very good. The viewing angle of 176 degrees is also enough to allow you to sit anywhere in the room and still get a good view. The pictures at the edges are also pretty decent. With so many improved features, it is but natural that the price tag be a bit more at $999.99 MSRP. Nevertheless, it makes a good investment.
