whats up guys. im shopping around for 42" lcds. im looking to keep it under $1000. at best buy, they have their insignia 42" tvs for around $700. im just wondering if anyone knows weather or not they are any good for gaming? (xbox 360, ps3).

I have an lcd tv hooked up to my 360 right now and it works great for gaming. I don't see a reason why that wouldn't

thanks for the reply. this particular tv im looking at has a 60hz refresh rate. im wondering if thats "good" for video games. ???

I wouldn't trust that brand. But it's up to you.

although i appreciate the reply, im hoping to hear from either insignia owners, or people who have similar tv's, and/or who know a lot about them.
again.. im wondering if 60hz refresh rate is fine for xbox360 gaming? the brand itself gets good ratings and the prices are great. side by side, the picture seems just as good as tvs twice the price.
im just wondering, based on the specs in the link i provided in the first post, if this particular tv would be good for gaming. thanks.

I have a 42" Insignia 1080p TV (looks slightly different than the one pictured though) that I bought 8 or 9 months ago for $700 and I have no complaints at all. HDTV and Xbox 360 games look great.

hey LarsCS. thanks for the info! my friend has a 37" insignia (720p). im gonna try out the 360 on that this weekend. but its nice hearing from someone who owns the same tv im looking at!

all i got to say is u pay for what u get that brand u are looking at is bestbuys kinda in store tv the sec's look ok but i would stick with sharp for lcd i have used em and lovem 60Hz is great for gameing but if u can wait a while maybe a year the 120Hz tv will be cheeper and thoes babys are soooooo sweet at gameing its up to u no matter witch tv u buy be happy with it and stop looking at others coz you'll keep your self up at night hopeing u got a good one if looks good to u and does what u want it too then enjoy
thats my 2 cents lol

insignia tv's are made by lg.. best buy buys the tech for cheap and slaps their name on it. every best buy brand is just something else rebadged

I just bought an Insignia 42" 1080P tv and today was day 2. The tv no longer works. I didn't even have a chance to get Dish Network HD installed yet.
