I would recommend this set to a friend with certain reservations.

Summary: PRO 1) Good price for a 32 in LED 2) Very light and easy to hook up 3) Pretty good picture straight on and eye level 4) Pretty good picture with non HD sources. Have yet to try it with our HD source 5) Good on screen controls 6) Nice cosmetics CON 1) Bad sound. Reminds me of an old AM radio. I had to dig out our old Sony SAVA system and run audio out to audio in and bypass this audio mess.
Summary: So far so good i have the TV for about 2 months and the only problem i've found (besides the poor quality of the sound) is the remote control.. or maybe the IR receiver... it's so difficult to turn the volume up from more then 3' away from the TV. I mean it's almost impossible. Yeah i did try to configure the remote from my cable system.. THE SAME... IR receiver got serious issues. besides this, the quality of the image is really good considering the price of the set.
Summary: The TV itself works great, especially at this price point. The speakers are crap, but I can live with that or get external speakers as others have done. The remote is the problem. It's horrible. You have to be right next to the TV for it to work, I tried new batteries. I went out and bought a Universal Remote (GE 24950 from Amazon) and it didn't help a bit. It wouldn't take any of the codes for Westinghouse, so I had to "learn" the remote.
Summary: 1} The picture is great quality. The side vision is not that great, about 140 degrees, my guess. But in my use, straight is good for me. If you hang it in a wall cornerner, you may never see this issue. Very light, can be hung with picture frame hangers. 10 pounds I think. Hard anchors in sheet rock with no problems. 2} The remote is very hard to use. I need to push the buttons really hard to make them work.
Summary: I first noticed this television at Target when I saw the word LED and realized the the very inexpensive price ($429). The television looked pretty good on display, and was very thin. I decided to check if they had it on Amazon, and yes they did. However, the model number was different and it was much cheaper here. I'm guessing that the Target model (LD-3257DF) was specifically made for them, and on the website it lists that the model adds a QAM tuner.
Summary: Pros: - Very good picture quality. - Great value. Cons: - Speakers are horrendous. - Changing channels takes nearly two seconds per click. - Sometimes I have to click the remote twice to get it to function. Other Thoughts: - This is a great buy at the price point. - Ideal use would be for a computer monitor.
