Summary: We purchased this tv from Walmart. Not purchased through Amazon. I would not buy Westinghouse brand again. It seemed like a great deal at the time, but after 2 years it lost the picture, but still had sound. We purchased a new backlight inverter from shopjimmy.com, and we will be fixing the tv ourselves. We will be saving a lot of money doing the work ourselves. The parts cost us $90. We looked at several Youtube videos on how to fix it. Youtube was very helpful.
Summary: We bought this TV in 2011 and have not had one problems. Picture is great, colors are great, and I was suprised the sound was so good with the factory speakers. All we do is watch TV and movies so can't give you any data on the other inputs. Best of all, it's MADE IN THE USA!
Great TV, great price. Used model and no problems at all

Summary: Purchased this TV last year for a Black Friday special and it was a used model. Shipping was professional and folks who delivered were great. Had absolutely no issues in the delivery or the product itself. Unbelievable picture, been going strong for over a year now without a single problem. For electronics, especially TV's I like to wait 6mos to a year before submitting a review unless there is a major equipment failure.
Summary: The picture went out on this TV two weeks of use or about 15 hours of use. Called customer service and it was fixed under warrenty as they sent a technician to our home to put in the replacement part. The tehnician pointed out how cheap the capacitors are in this TV. After the first fix the TV worked flawlessly for about 8 months then started acting up again. On the ninth month the screen went black and all we get is sound.
Summary: We have had the tv since October, 2011, and it is performing well. Video and colors are crisp, and sound is good. It's hooked into our entertainment center, and dvd's and streamed movies look good. A good value for the money. After we had the tv for a few months, another family member bought one from Amazom, and they are very satisfied.
Summary: Me and my sisters bought this for our mother since her projections tv went bad, we got her this since it was a good deal, and its being going completely bright green on the screen a few times already! Google Westinghouse Green Screen, it seems alot of people are having the same problem with this brand. Go to reliable brand.
Summary: Do not purchase the used models of this TV from Amazon (other anywhere else for that matter). Please read the following for why. I'd be very careful purchasing either one of these TVs. I can assure you at least 1 of them is returned as I was the one who returned it. I'm also fairly confident the other one was also returned. When I purchased my TV there had been 3 of these TVs available used. By the time I purchased mine there was only 1 left.
Summary: First off let me start by saying that I'm not going to review LED vs LCD vs Plasma. Let's all assume that you've done your research and settled on an LCD. Since you're going that route, I can't deny that this TV is a great buy. I've had it for about 3 months and I am pleased every day. The color looks great, the resolution is just as expected and the value was awesome.
