At A Glance

Gorgeous giant packs in more inputs, more screen controls, and more extras than other 30-inchers.

Its price is right, but the Insigia NS-LCD52HD-09 displays unexceptional picture and lacks extras.

The Vizio VF550XVT carries a reasonable price, but its image, sound, and extra features don't add up to a very good HDTV.

Won�t accept 1080p inputs--not a big deal when such sources don't exist, but image quality was just okay.
