Summary: Well, after buying a Westinghouse 40' LCD 8 months ago, I am now on my SECOND REPLACEMENT tv under their "warranty" and this time they sent me a brand new one (not refurbished). Plugged it in and all I got was a distorted picture and red squiggly lines across it (in every mode). The first time my original Westinghouse went out was 4 months after I bought it..
Summary: I bought this at Walmert online brand new and it just went kaput. I can't believe it! I read the reviews and it looked pretty decent. It was cheap at $260ish and thought it was a good buy...PLEASE DON'T BUY THIS FOR YOUR OWN GOOD. It's seldom used at my uncle's thinking it will be sufficient, so wrong.
Summary: The tv looks very good, it is very slim and looked great in my bedroom but, after 24hrs of using it it just went black!, the tv was on stand by and i just couldn't take it out of it, i had to turn it off for a couple of minutes and then was ok but happened to me 3 times in 2 days so i decided to return it. Amazon's customer service was awesome they sent me a total refund and gave me $20 dlls as a gift for the inconvenience. Thumbs up for Amazon!
Summary: Before you buy a Westinghouse TV, do an Internet search for "consumer complaints Westinghouse TV". There is a problem with these TVs where the screen will go black and you have to turn the TV off and on a few times to get it to go back on. I thought I might have a bad power supply, but there are sites full of complaints about these TVs, all with the same problem. At first I could turn the TV off and on and the screen would come back on, but now my TV is totally dead.
Summary: + Picture quality on HD channels is amazing. + Set is thin and lightweight - Sound is awful. Highs are piercing, bass is nonexistent. I've heard it can be fixed with external speakers and an amp. Factor that into the cost of the TV if you care about sound quality at all. - Lag time when changing channels is long. - Remote hardly works. Has to be lined up perfectly, and no further than ~4' from the set. Sound can be rectified with external speakers..
Summary: I got this TV because of its features and amazing prize. I was really happy with it, but after 3 short weeks of using it the tv stopped working. The tv had sound but would only show a blue screen. No picture what so ever. After doing some online research I discovered that I was not the only one having this issue with Westinghouse tvs.
