Customer Reviews

Great TV, Good colors.
The second time this happened the TV was off and would not turn on from the remote or the power button on the side of the TV.
I still recommend buying 1080p; once you see a full 1080p movie on this LCD you will never want to watch anything else again.

Ok I was going to write a long story about how I got here but who really cares.

The bottom line is this unit completely rocks. I compared it to the Sony SXRDs and the JVC 1080P ILAs - both are 1080P displays but will not accept a 1080P signal. The picture is incredible - truely like an 8 megapixel photo in HD. Even Home Theater Mag rated its performace (96) higher than the Sony (94), JVC (92) and all the DLP (< 90) units in its 2/2006 HDTV face off. But remember its a monitor not a TV so you'll need to either have a cable box, sat receiver, computer or external tuner. Actually this is one monitor which you can hook everything up to since it has 5 HD inputs. I've only found one weakness - sometimes when switching between sources it sometimes looses sinc and goes pink - but its easily fixed by switching again to another source and back.

I have had the chance to test out the 37inch westinghouse, 37 Sceptre, 42inch Sceptre and the 42

westinghouse. I bought all these 1080p monitors and kept only 2 of them. Hopefully my experience will help someone to make a right decision about their future purchase..

First I got the 37 westinghouse.

It was great as a monitor but while watching video it had motion blur due to slower response time

and you could see the video had noise and was not sharp or cleaned up. If you want to buy for monitor only and not to watch video then you can get this unit.

Then I got the 37 spectre

which is also 1080p. This was a very good monitor. Black levels were good but it had video tear

or jitter when I used to watch video with DVI input i.e from the computer.(no it was not the

computer problem) I connected it to 3 different high end computers and the problem still

persisted. I had to return it as it developed problem on left hand side of screen where the there

was a chunk screen started to flicker within a few days. I got an replacement for it after 3 weeks. It worked for 45 days and it developed a blue vertical line which stayed on permanently. When I called

sceptre they wanted me to ship it back and they said it would take 4-6 weeks to fix it, they said it was an panel problem. So I dont know if I was unlucky or if the build quality is bad. But the video from HDTV cable box was very

very nice. Sharp no motion blur no jitter. Jitter was happenning only with 1080p video source

through DVI. What I am talking about is that when watching video the top half of screen seems to tear from bottom half which gets very annoying.

I received a Westinghouse LVM-42W2 on February 23rd and was instantly amazed by the size and image quality. I use it exclusively as a computer monitor and I was blown away, not only by the beautiful graphics, but also by the high resolution (1920 by 1080 is a lot of pixels!) The colors are vibrant and my movies look fantastic (although you become much more aware of the visual defects of lower resolutions movies and DVDs.) Although I do not use most of the connectors, there is an ample supply of them for all types of video equipment from video game consoles to satellite TV.

I was also initially pleased by the user interface. I used to have a 37" Olevia 537 (which is a 720p set) which took about 15 seconds to turn on. You would press the power button and get absolutely no feedback (the screen stayed completely black) for fifteen seconds. In addition, my PC would "forget" the resolution after each reboot. With the Westinghouse LVM-42W2, all these little annoyances were swept away. It takes about 4 seconds after I hit the power button for the screen to come alive, and there is an immediate, tv-like beep when you hit the power button, to let you know that it's coming up. The menus were also very clean, making use of the high resolution of the screen to present clean and crisp menu options. The image quality is absolutely superior to the Olevia panel.

Switching between the different inputs is a snap. The remote control has five buttons, labeled DVI, VGA, YPbPr, S-Video and AV, which allows you to instantly switch between the various inputs. Strangely, pressing the DVI button repeatedly cycles through the two DVI inputs and the single HDMI input. I imagine that the YPbPr does the same for the two component inputs.

I am very happy with the Picture quality in analog, digital, and HD, the remote and menu could be better, but will use my Harmony 880 anyway.

To fix the Power Lock-up issue call (866) 287-5555 - Westinghouse Technical Support.

Inform them that you are having a "Power Lock-up" issue with your set and that your current Firmware is 1.xx. Tell them you have read that the latest Firmware 1.19 corrects this issue and that you would like to be updated to the latest Firmware.

They will take your information and have someone contact you from one of their Third-Party support organizations (such as IAI) to arrange a time to come out to you check out the set and perform the upgrade.
