Westinghouse LVM-47w1 1080p LCD Display Review
3 Star Review  audioholics.com - Oct 4, 2007

1080p seems to be the most recent “Holy Grail” of the AV community… but how do you get it without hocking your car and taking out a second mortgage? (we don’t recommend either and, in fact, if you’re thinking of either of these options, please seek help immediately) Westinghouse broke all the rules when it introduced it sub-$2,000 42” LCD display in the beginning of 2006. At the time, MSRP was $2,799 and the street price quickly fell to around $1,800. The company also offers a 47-inch version of this TV, the LVM-47w1 for a (current) street price of just $2500 - you see the attraction here, no? As prices dropped gradually amongst the competing LCD and plasma panel TV markets, Westinghouse decided to simply give the competition a kick in the pants and really “get the party started”. Since the 47-inch LVM-47w1 is simply the bigger brother to the 42-inch LVM-42w2 this review will be targeted at seeing the larger display performs exactly the same and/or overcomes any of the shortcomings of the 42-inch model.

Westinghouse LVM-47wi LCD TV
4.5 Star Review  hdtvsolutions.com - Mar 9, 2007

Make no mistake, the LVM-47w1 is a working man's TV, which has no pretensions about being a videophile's ultimate reference monitor. But when it's displaying HD content, it does a fairly convincing job of impersonating one. Give it SD material and it becomes much more pedestrian.

westinghouse 47 inch lcd short lifespan
2 Star Review   By member trout54473 - Mar 3, 2009   

Strengths: tv is excellent when it is working no complaints

Weakness: short lifespan

My brother bought a 42 inc westinghouse lcd. I went over and checked it out and i was very impressed. Week later I went and got a 47 inch for my home. 6 months later we were both experiencing screen freeze and power issues. We both had to unplug and reset the tv occasionally. This went on for about a year. Last month his tv made a loud popping sound and went completely dead. This week my 47 inch went black and will never come back. Either a big coincidence or these lcds just don't last.

worth the price ( dont ever buy a tv without a warranty for 4 years)
4 Star Review     

Strengths: connections available quality(read below)

Weakness: auto input is crappy and useless some reliability issues remote is weak

Ok so here's the long story. I had a friend lend me his lcd tv he bought since his condo wasnt going to be ready. The TV was a Sceptre 46 1080p with built in scanner he bought for 1300$. So I get the jones when I have to return the tv and go back to my old one, xbox games suck now that I dont have my baby. I run out and buy the cheapest 1080p 46 or above tv I could find.I will say that that tv was better than this one for a couple of reasons but this one does have some perks itself. Ok so it doesnt have a tuner, I have cable with digital now, a hdtv tuner is the same price so no biggie. The first one I bought had one component port bad and the other one had lines in it when not displaying anything but it looked superb when it had anything on screen. The one bad component port could have been giving interference so I took it back and swapped it for the same. This one was fine, I loved the cable management and right now I have quite a few things hooked up to it. Right now I have 2 xbox 360s(one hdmi- not hacked, one composite- hacked), 1 xbox for media center(composite), 1 wii(reg video),and one 1 pc hooked to it. No need for the video switches and all that. If it breaks I bought the 4 year home service warranty for 179$ but I dont care what you buy you better get something thats over 1 year no matter what or be happy with it working only for a year.

Bought 2 Units and Both Went Bad - Avoid This Model
1 Star Review   By member mexiace - Jan 15, 2008   

Strengths: Low Price Point - Average Picture

Weakness: Terrible Quality - Avg Picture - Bad Customer Service

I bought 2 units from Best Buy in November of 2006. Both units are now bad as of Dec. 2007. One unit is experiencing 5 secs of a solid color (changes all the time) intermittently. The other one has developed some lines in the background that are very noticable. Called Westinghouse and they told me I am out of luck since they were both 1 month out of warranty. Avoid this model if you can.

5 Star Review   By member riseofnations - Jul 14, 2007   

Strengths: Price, huge size, color reproduction, 1080p

Weakness: remote

Have been using this TV for about 6 months now. I wrote a review before but somehow wasn't posted here. :? Anyways, I've been very satisfied with this TV. No complaints at all except for the remote that acts out once in a while. But that problem's gone now that I switched to a logitech harmony remote. I have it connected to my pc, dvd player and a samsung tuner. I don't own an hdtv player yet, but all the dvds look great with upscaling. The games look awesome.. sometimes I have to move my head side to side to look at what's going on the screen.. lol. I think these are replaced by a newer model now, but if you find one of these, get it. It's a great monitor.

LVM47W1
5 Star Review   By member Huskymaniac - May 13, 2007   

Strengths: VERY Sharp picture. Shaper than Sony or Samsung. GREAT price.

Weakness: Some "blurring" on moving items. Not sure if it is the firmware or panel but it isn't a big deal. The color does change slightly at extreme viewing angles. Speaker seems to get distorted at times.

The weaknesses might cause me to rate this at a 4.5 stars but that isn't an option so I leaned toward 5 stars. The speaker isn't a big deal because I use surround sound. The off angle color shift is slightly annoying but not major. The "blurring" on scrolling bars on ESPN and such are also not a big deal. Given the speed to the refresh this is probably a firmware artifact which will likely be dealt with on firmware upgrades.

5 Star Review   By member prionprotein - Apr 16, 2007   

Strengths: 1080P, price, display size

Weakness: wash out

I really like this tv. For the price, I really can't complain about anything. Love the 1080P movies that I watch with my hi-def player. The screen is huge, but after having it for a while doesn't look too big.. lol. The colors are great, good contrast, blacks are nice. Only problem I noticed is that the colors are washed out if I view from the sides. Other than that, this was a great purchase! Highly recommended

3 Star Review   By member roggan - Feb 15, 2007   

Strengths: 47", 1080, price, DVI

Weakness: washed out colors, banding, dead pixels

This is a good display if you can find a unit that is not defective. I've been unlucky enough to get it with banding, and dead pixels even after exchanging it a couple of times. I found one with just a few dead pixels that I can live with. The price is one of the most attractive things about this monitor. Also, the ability to display 1080p and 1920 x 1080 resolution from my computer is a huge plus. The unit does have very limited view angles and the colors become washed out if you're watching unless you are sitting right ahead. But for the price, I'm happy with it.

Strengths: Huge, 1080p, clear, cheap

Weakness: lack of tuner, remote sensor, speaker, washed out color

I got this TV a month ago and I am pleased with it. It was a lot cheaper compared to other brands. All my hi def movies look great with my blue ray player. I also use it for my PS3 and the quality of games is cool. The only thing I don't like is how the color is washed out when viewing from an angle. You have to be sitting straight in front of it to appreciate it's color. But you don't notice this unless you keep on swaying your head back and forth :p Overall though, this is a great TV for the price.

4 Star Review   By member bacteriophage - Jan 30, 2007   

Strengths: 1080p, 47", DVI, HDMI inputs, price

Weakness: no TV tuner

Bought this monitor a few weeks ago and I really like it so far. This was my first big screen TV and I upgraded from a 20" widescreen monitor. I use it primarily as a PC monitor and this thing is huge + awesome!! It really shines as a TV monitor. The text and images are sharp on 1920 x 1080 resolutions and my games with AA + all other eye candy turned on look amazing on it. I wish it had a TV tuner so that I wouldn't have had to buy a separate tuner for it to watch OTA HDTV channels. The TV quality through my HTPC was horrible which is to be expected since it was an analog signal, at a low res plus this monitor is so big. But as I said I use it as my monitor and I am very satisfied with the image quality it produces as a monitor.

Large LCD monitor for a nice price
4 Star Review   By member scottnsamantha - Jan 9, 2007   

Strengths: Price, 1920 x 1080 resolution, large number of inputs

Weakness: No TV tuner, poor remote

I bought this monitor from Best Buy 2 weeks ago and have been very pleased with it so far. Setup was easy especially with all the inputs this monitor has. I am very impressed with its ability to support the 1920 x 1080 resolution when connected to my PC and the color and clarity when tuned to HD programming is great! The remote is poor and I cannot find a code for the TV so it can be controlled by my DirecTV remote. The monitor has one dead pixel but it is not noticeable. These are minor weaknesses and I can live with them. My big concern has to do with its long term reliability. It comes with a standard one year warranty and I am not a big fan of purchasing extended warranties. There are other manufacturers which have come out with similar models at a similar price (Vizio & Philips to name two). I have 30 days in which to decide if I want to return it to Best Buy. I may consider buying a different LCD HDTV from Costco which has a better return policy if something goes wrong.

5 Star Review   By member charlesl - Dec 27, 2006   

Strengths: Excellent color, great viewing angles, no dead pixels, great price, easy setup for cable users

Weakness: Remote is marginal, Stand is not easily removeable, Audio is average.

I hooked my Westinghouse LCD up to an HDTV Cox Cable box and a Sony XBOX. The color settings were almost perfect from the factory. The colors are bright and true. The viewing angles are excellent both horizontally and vertically.

Very impressive
5 Star Review   By member usblades - Dec 18, 2006   

Strengths: Excellent PC monitor wide range of connection types Hi def tv through component is amazing

Weakness: Remote looks likes its from the 80's Styling not the best

I bought this tv after reading various reviews and months of scouring. I dont purchase anything inless im 100% sure this is it and it was the same with this tv. Read good and bad reviews and heard some horror stories but once I saw the screen in Best buy and messed with the settings I realised how good the picture can be. Purchased it with a 4 yr protection plan so i dont need to worry bout that. Hooked it up to my PC and xbox 360 and can honestly say it is by far the best picture ive seen. The colors are awesome and the clarity is sharper than my dell 30". They say you get what you pay for but this is the best $2k ive ever spent. Wait till you see hi-def on it. Amazing.

absolutely amazing!!! unbeatable prize
5 Star Review   By member jorgegaribay - Dec 7, 2006   

Strengths: excellent pic quality, black levels are awesome, HD looks spectacular

Weakness: none other than the remote, but it's a non issue for me

I got this a week ago from my local Best Buy for 1,699 and I love it, did a lot of looking before I got this one. I had the 42" 1080p model 42w2 which looks identical to this but I returned it to the store and waited for this larger one. no dead pixels, one of my worries and I love it, even SD channels looks great, but HDnet and all HD channels look awesome. I considered sony and sharp before I purchased this, but at double the price, no thanks. one last thing, the sound out of this tv monitor is excellent I have my cable box hooked up to the HDMI connection and the sound and bass is excellent.

Weakness: Power Cord socket is very touchy,for those who have power problems. The remote is good for setup only, get a nice all-in-one.

Sony is #1,Samsung #2 but both pricey,WESTINGHOUSE has no tuner so I bought one for $150,because I now get all the local hd stations which are really clearer. Total price for both w/tax NY 8% $2050 which is great.Also its $7 more a month for digital cable but with the quality picture its needed. If your picture is bad its because that is what your giving it.

Westinghouse 47" 1080p LCD TV
4 Star Review   By member cassius582 - Oct 27, 2006   

Strengths: Great Value, Great Picture, Many Inputs, and 1080p resolution

Weakness: Crappy remote, exterior style is not as good, only one hdmi input, unable to adjust picture in detail from menu

I had to wait 2 months for this tv as it was on backorder from just about every store. Finally got it from crutchfield, and it was delivered to me within 2 days of getting it in stock. Best value of a 47" 1080p lcd tv for under $2700. The picture on this thing if fabulous and I just love the various inputs and picture quality. Wish their was more hdmi inputs, but still its nothing serious. It has not hdtv tuner, but then again, that is something I didn't need since I have a cable tv box anyway. This also looks great as a computer monitor as I have a HTPC hooked up to it and it is just fabulous.

Great price for bleeding edge technology
4 Star Review   By member eagle17 - Aug 14, 2006   

Strengths: Incredible monitor for a PC. Great price. Very Good picture quality

Weakness: Some vertical light banding due to backlighting (common on most LCD TVs). lack of tuner or cablecard qam tuner.

I took a chance on this set not for the price but because it was the only 1080p LCD I could find in stock. (at 46" or higher). I am extremely happy with this set. after hooking it up to a computer through DVI I can honestly say it is the best Picture Quality I have ever scene. I have had this set for 3 weeks now and can say it has blown away all of my expectations. I have used with comcast mot6412 through component set to 1080I(hd on demand movies are better than the blueray movies I have played on this). Also a sony up-converting dvd player through HDMI and this was also amazing with newer movies. The last device I have used is an XBOX 360 and the games are just incredible but I can not tell the difference on this set from another lcd at 720p.
