Best Buy to Sell "Value" Version of 32-Inch LCD & Blu-ray

Best Buy to Sell
It may not have 120Hz motion processing and a contrast ratio higher than 20,000:1, at least not compared to a similar model made by Sharp, but it will be a few hundred less dollars. Best Buy has decided to sell a 1080p LCD with Blu-ray disc player under it's Insignia store brand and even though reviews say not to expect a lot in the way of loading times or audio support, it is a very good deal for the 32-inch LCD. It has a built-in HDTV tuner, is ENERGY STAR qualified, and a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. It features PC video input, 2 HDMI inputs, a built-in Ethernet port, and 3 audio outputs.

The Best Buy website says the product is "coming soon" and lists the price at $699. They also offer a two year parts and labor warranty.
