Avoid Westinghouse TV
1 Star Review     

Strengths: I bought this TV 14 months ago because of the display picture in the store and the affordable price.

Weakness: TV had a poor image from day one; claylike appearance of faces especially close up. Scenery looked great though.

After just over 14 months, the picture is completely gone. Phoned tech support and was told the problem is with the screen, which is more than 80% of the cost of the TV. We now have a TV with sound, but absolutely no picture. Didn't expect to pay close to $600 for a TV that would only last a little over a year; live & learn! Won't be buying any Westinghouse product again.

DO NOT BUY WESTINGHOUSE!!!!! Buyer beware!!!!!
1 Star Review   By member bakerelem - Jan 6, 2009   

Strengths: NONE noted at this time!

Weakness: TV died after only a little over a year!!!!

This TV DIED after only a little over a year. Westinghouse would DO NOTHING!!!! because it was over a year. Other TVs that I have owned lasted decades. I would expect a brand new TV to last longer than this one did. Absolutely no support from Westinghouse!!!!!! DO NOT BUY WESTINGHOUSE!!!!

MINE IS BROKEN
2 Star Review   By member loobahood8b - Oct 20, 2008   

Strengths: Good image quality, interface, looks classy, plethora of inputs

Weakness: Westinghouse's customer service. My monitor showed latent signs of vertical banding (generally, a manufacturing defect) and they refuse to acknowledge the problem.

It'll work great until it breaks. Get an extended warranty. If it sounds like a great deal, then chances are it is too good to be true. I won't be buying from Westinghouse again just because their customer service is too poor for electronics of this cost and caliber.

Not worth the hassle
1 Star Review   By member AME1234 - Jul 13, 2008   

Strengths: Decent picture when it works.

Weakness: Picture blinks off and on when trying to use HD formats. 1080i format makes TV picture fail all together. Can not find sources when switching from one to the other and shuts it self off.

I am about to return this TV as the over all performance of this television is not living up to what it was supposed to be. It says that it supports all HD formats but if you attempt to watch a Blueray disc in 1080i format, the TV blinks off all together. Now i have called Westinghouse about this issue and they have told me that i have to pay to return it and for all shipping costs. I have had this television for less than 3 months and already its costing me more than $400 extra just to repair it. Take my advice and spend hte extra and get a better brand. I am now about to sell this one and get an Aquos from Sharp. I really hope this one is better.

good value LCD TV
4 Star Review   By member flyingtigerace - Mar 6, 2008   

Strengths: good picture quality, especially for the price; nice appearance unlike those TVs with glossy/shiny bling bling cheap plastic rim; QAM tuner is sensitive.

Weakness: The contrast is lower than a typical Samsung which sets the standard for LCD, in my opinion; HDMI doesn't seem to accept PC input without noticeable degradation.

I told myself not to expect too much from a Westinghouse, but I was pleasantly surprised when I saw it next to a Samsung and a Sony at BestBuy. The Westinghouse had a slightly darker image, but it was also 30% cheaper. There is a slight buzz from the speakers due to poor noise reduction circuitry, but it is not audible unless you put your ear near them. Overall it's a good value.

why I chose the Westinghouse over the other brands 32" LCD TV
4 Star Review     

Strengths: Compaired to the Sony and Samsungs sitting right next to it on the shelf...hey it looked as good if not equal...plus it was several hundred $$$$$ less in price

Weakness: I really have not found any.

Westinghouse might not have the name recognition for TV's or HDTV's as Sony, Samsung and many other's I looked and did a comparison on....but I found the picture to be bright, vibrant, actually a real surprise to me. I have been researching my choices for a month or so before actually going to a store and making my purchase. The Westinghouse looked darn good and the price was really easy on the wallet. I suggest you give it a look.

Westinghouse 32
4 Star Review   By member RayLeeMo - Dec 11, 2007   

Strengths: Great HDTV picture, hitting the TV mute also mutes the home theather (a problem with a returned Insignia unit)

Weakness: Built in side control labels not visible from the front-can't read when the TV is in a hutch.

Have had no problems with the unit. The HD has been great. Use the audio output to drive a small Fisher home theather unit. Good Dolby and Dolby Pro Logic (5.1) sound.

had to return this tv
2 Star Review   By member amlong - Nov 25, 2007   

Strengths: cheap price

Weakness: audio issues

bought this tv because it was on sale at best buy but after having it on for about 2 hours, the audio started to go off and come back on. after turning the power off and back on, the audio came back for a short time then went out completely. i had to return the tv for an exchange. the new one seems to be working well, but it has not been very long so i may or may not have problems with this one as well. we will see...

Power problems
2 Star Review     

Strengths: Price point

Weakness: Power issues

Purchased 1 month ago. Was pleased until set had problems powering up. Had to unplug TV one time to get it resolved. Now the problem is back and unplugging it then plugging it back in are no help. Set will not power up. Waiting for response from Westinghouse on a resolution. In searching the web, others seem to have had the same problem with other models. Very sad. The price was very good, but if it does not work, what's the point. Taking it back to BB for exchange.

returned it for audio outs
2 Star Review   By member idsullymichaels - Jul 20, 2007   

Strengths: seemed fine and affordable

Weakness: audio outs don't work

returned it (2 of them - tested the second - exchange - while in the store) The audio outs to the home entertainment system didn't give any strength of signal. have heard it is a problem with the model - admit that I didn't try the digital sound hook-up (think it has one) I did the RCA jacks.
