Insignia NS-BRDVD


It's likely to be at least another year before new Blu-ray disc (BD) players reach the magical sub-$100 price that seems to trigger mainstream adoption, but some of today's players deliver practically pristine audio and video quality at increasingly...

Inexpensive. Good Blu-ray picture quality. Solid multimedia file support

DVD upconversion quality lags behind other players. No network option (Ethernet)

It's not as skilled at upconverting standard DVDs as some of the other players we've tested, but the Insignia NS-BRDVD is an otherwise-capable Blu-ray playerand it's a great bargain.

Insignia NS-BRDVD


For me, this unit couldn't be better. In my HD DVD history, and owning over 250 HD DVD's, I probably viewed a special feature 5 times. My needs are basic. I want to watch a movie in Hi-Def. I want great digital surround.

A bare bones 1080/24fps player that gets the job done without the bells and whistles. I picked it up for $229 from These are the units that are going to make or break Blu's future success

See Pros. Die hard aristocratic Blu fans will bash this unit for being cheap

I'd like to tell you all to not be fooled by the brand name. Most of us want to say we have the big brand names because we have been made to feel bad about having a "non" big brand name item. this unit has the same panasonic chipset in it found in more...

Bitstreams DTHD & DTS-HD-MA out to my Onkyo 805 receiver; great video, and it's DIRT CHEAP! (price wise)

not a real problem unless you don't have one, but, to get HD audio you need a modern A/V receiver with HDMI 1.3

Insignia NS-BRDVD


I was given the Insignia as a Father's Day gift from my kids. We got a better than average deal on the machine at Best Buy.

deep color, DTS-HD MA, Dolby TrueHD, easy setup, simple to use

no analog outs (i guess, i use hdmi), not the newest profile
