The Insignia F30 is a budget LCD TV that generally offers poor picture quality, including for gaming, movies, and use in dark rooms. Its performance is also poor when viewing in bright rooms, making it less suitable for environments with lots of light. Sports content is rated fair, so it can be passable for watching games. It has low sound quality and doesn't support advanced HDR formats like HDR10+ or Dolby Vision. However, it provides good upscaling of lower resolution content and has very good input lag, which is good news for casual gaming. With only three HDMI ports, connectivity is limited. If you're on a tight budget, this TV might suffice, but if you can afford to spend more, consider a different model for a better viewing experience. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Sports:
3.1
The Insignia F30 TV has a fair reflections handling which means it might not be the best for well-lit rooms where glare can be a problem, and its motion processing score indicates it may struggle with fast movements often seen in sports. Although the TV has decent gray uniformity and is satisfactory from different viewing angles, these factors don't entirely compensate for the other limitations in a sports-watching scenario.
Cartoons & Animaton:
3.0
The Insignia F30 TV displays colors poorly straight out of the box, which can result in cartoons and animations not looking as vibrant as intended. Moreover, its limited color gamut and volume mean that it cannot produce a wide range of colors, making the images appear less lively and rich.

Tom's guide

Michael Gowan | August 2021
"Still one of the best bargain TVs. The best feature remains its quick and responsive implementation of Fire TV OS and all the goodies that come with it. Having Alexa inside the Insignia 4K Ultra HD Fire TV Edition brings a lot of value, from voice control of TV functions to access to your smart home devices."
