I don’t get many opportunities to talk about TV / DVD hybrids, those somewhat rare television sets that come with an included DVD player built right into the television’s fuselage. So when I do get a chance to talk about one, like today’s review target, the Insignia NS LDVD32Q 10A, I’m always pretty excited.
The Insignia NS LDVD32Q 10A is a thirty two inch 720p LCD television with a built-in DVD player that will play DVD, DVD+r, DVD-r, DVD+rw, DVD-rw, CD, CD-r and CD-RW. It also includes a sixteen watt speaker system, a PC input, three HDMI inputs, an S-video port, two component video ports, two composite video ports, and one RF antenna input.
The Insignia NS LDVD32Q 10A is LONG on utility. I mean, come on–not only will this sucker easily handle your upscale gear, with plenty of HDMI ports, it’ll also handle your old stuff AND plenty more besides, plus save you some shelf space with that built-in DVD player. The problem here is that sound and image quality seem somewhat mediocre, probably owing to the 720p format.
But considering that Best Buy only wants about four hundred thirty bucks for it, you could definitely do a lot worse. I’ve seen more than a few cases where you’d pay much more and get much less than this has to offer, so I can say that the Insignia NS LDVD32Q 10A is a bit of a mixed bag, but still pretty nice.
