Summary: Ended up settling for this one after problems with 3 others from local store. Figured it would be alright since Westinghouse used to be a good quality brand. First thing the clock was a spazz. Set the date & time, turn it off and back on and not only would the time be wrong but the date would change. Every time I turned it on the date would be anywhere from a couple weeks off to several years ahead or behind.
Summary: I bought this TV at Best Buy, and about a year later half the screen began going dim intermittently and then one day it just refused to turn on. Apparently this is a very common issue with Westinghouse televisions...a ribbon cable that runs from the motherboard to one half of the LED edge lighting along the bottom of the TV screen becomes abraded and shorts out on a strip of aluminum the LED light strip is attached to causing the TV to not turn on. Awesome.
Summary: Purchased this TV 13 months ago. It was a great TV while it lasted but it just shut off one day in the middle of a show. It wouldn't turn back on. After replacing the power supply it still doesn't work. Pretty unhappy that my $500 purchase is now an ugly wall decoration. The Insignia I purchased in 2009 however is still working nice. Will never purchase this brand again.
Summary: Make a TV, make it cheap (although I wouldn't consider the price tag at $ 500 cheap!!!) , sell to easily fooled consumers and when the public outcry becomes big enough the company executives close shop and walk away grinning with billions in their bank accounts! This company has no pride nor has it integrity and does not back up their products! Do NOT buy a TV from Westinghouse unless you only need for a year (or less) !
Another Westinghouse ld-4655VX landfill contribution
25 July 2013
Summary: Had this big screen tv for two months. Powered off and would not start up again. The power supply was extremely hot and it is apparent that this either failed or the tv did something to make the power supply fail. If you're looking for something that is a mediocre tv at best, and expect a functional operating life of little more than a D-cell battery, this is the tv for you.
Summary: I purchased this Westinghouse LED 46" TV back in December 2011 for a great price of $550. It was a nice price, but turned out to be a bad 1-1/2 year investment. The picture was great, but the sound is subpar. The TV stopped working in July 2013, and of course no warranty in effect. Back when I bought the TV, there were really no reviews on the set, and I always check reviews before I buy, so you have been warned.
Summary: I purchased this TV 13 months ago and it started to have issues with the picture at the 6 month mark. There were discolored patches and weird halo effects. it was resolved when the tv was turned off and then on again. I called for a service tech to repair the issue and nothing was done. The tech told me that tv's just weren't made to last long and he didn't really see an issue and fixed nothing. He didn't even open the tv up and look inside of it!
Westinghouse LD-4655VX -- WARNING - Don't Even Think of Buying!
Sonja Jones, Amazon
25 February 2013
Summary: My wife and I received a Westinghouse LD-4655VX TV for a Christmas present. Just after the warranty was up (by 2 weeks) some of the edge lit LEDs went out. This was a $550.00 TV, and lasted 54 weeks. I called customer service and was given a Case#, and was told that someone would call me back within 24 hours. That was 5 days ago. I have called back 3 times, and I might as well been talking to my cat.
Summary: Originally bought at Sam's Club January of 2011. It worked well enough for 10 months, although it always took around 15 seconds between the time the power button was pressed and the time the logo would appear on the screen. There was no other indication that the television set had been turned on. No light or nothing. However, beginning of November the set just up and dies. Refuses to turns on. It took 3 months to get a replacement through Westinghouse.
