Seems like an inexpensive 50" 1080p family friendly budget or starter set. FWIW I believe Insignia's. are made by Hisense now recent mfr change 2010 I think .That would likely be an improvement over TCL or whoever made them before.
it might be a bit better than the earlier Insignia's
If it has a decent panel it might not be bad at all price is good .specs are not bad

Cnet reviewed an 60Hz model insignia 50 Oct. 2012 they seemed to think it was real good for the money .
Here is what Cnet says although they reviewed a 60 hz model they might be similar
"It's about as bare-bones as a TV can get, but it also has stellar user ratings -- and ships for free.
I think the most telling "feature" here is the user reviews: nearly 100 buyers rated the Insignia 4.7 stars out of 5 on average. That's a pretty rousing endorsement in my book."
I had a late 2009 mfr Dynex( Insignias and Dynex are same mfr.) in the B room had to replace some power supply capacitors
Feb 2013 .for what it was the picture was OK on HD not very good on SD though as compared to my new Toshiba it's good on both .
The capacitors for the Dynex Only cost be about $9.00 including shipping for some decent 105° low esr Panasonic's from Mouser.
It has been re proposed as a 2nd PC monitor for web content consumption on one of the PC.s and replaced by a new Toshiba in the b/room
Keep in mind this is a weekly deal at BB so the link will expire but they may keep these on special at or near that price they sometimes do that for a good while.
