I would like to start my review by commenting on the other review. I viewed the TV at Costco and it is, in fact, NOT the same TV. It has the same specs, but is not in fact the same model number. The TV at Costco had a much more dull, inaccurate color to it as well. I think this is the difference between this tv and the UW40TC1W.

On the TV itself: The TV's picture is really good for the money. I am using a Dish Satellite with a Joey Hopper and it looks great. I use it in my bedroom and lie about 8-10 feet away (head to screen). I hooked up my BR Drive and the picture was clear and crisp (not vivid or exciting like a Samsung, but still very good). (Make sure your input is set to 1080p--I was watching 480p until I realized there was a difference in my Dish Joey settings).

Pros: Price, picture, size, LED, 120Hz, 1080p, calibration presets

Cons: Basic remote, lackluster feature set (hard to adjust and calibrate picture, but see above), not smart TV, and no "smooth motion setting"

Overall, the TV is priced right, but not a 5 start TV at all. Given the price, I can only knock one star. It is what it is and it's not trying to be anything it isn't. See cons.

Update: Wanted to add that I have not attempted to mount this. The TV is breaking in some and looks better every week to me. I have used it with my HP DV7 to play Bluray and they look pretty darned good. I also hooked it up to my desktop via my GTX295 and enjoyed COD4 and BFBC2 with lots of immersion. I have always wanted to play on something this large. Paired with the GTX295 and an HDMI cable, games look great with little screen lag.

Side note: I received the TV with absolutely 0 dead pixels or any other cosmetic issues. I might just be lucky, but in the some 12 devices I have owned with flat panels, only my PSP had a single dead pixel. I feel terribly sorry for those with as many as 5-6 with any given brand, but no issues at all here!

Verified Purchase
I purchased this TV on 11/26/12 (that's Cyber Monday, if you're keeping track). It arrived a couple days later, and everything in the box was in good shape and worked perfectly.

The Westinghouse UW40T2BW is a no-frills TV, so there's very little to set up. I connected my Apple TV to it and everything worked great. The picture and sound quality are surprisingly good for a budget TV, and the thin bezel puts the focus on what's *on* the screen instead of what's around it. The TV is slim and weighs less than 30 pounds, making it ideal to mount.

About that. Amazon describes this TV as VESA 200mm x 200mm--it isn't. It's a non-standard size, and the molding in the back makes it even harder to properly attach a mount. I tried three different mounts, and the one that ultimately worked was the Sanus AMF112-B1. (I had to purchase it at Target, but if you can get it on Amazon, all the better.) The mount is adjustable for non-standard sizes, and includes spacers, which you'll need to use.

I'm very happy with this TV and would recommend it to others. But if you're going to mount it, save yourself the headache, learn from my experience, and get the Sanus AMF112-B1.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My first HDTV was a Westinghouse, and I was thrilled! It was around 8 years ago, and things have changed quite a bit. Standards are higher and prices are lower. With so many companies trying to get our attention, can Westinghouse still compete in the low end market?


My first impression of this TV was, "This is a Westinghouse? It looks fancy." The bezel is nicely understated and pretty thin, and the TV is very slim considering the low price. Compared to the Seiki TV I recently reviewed, this TV looks like it is from the future. It does not look like a $1000+ TV, but it doesn't look cheap.

The USB port can't be used for pictures or movies. It is for firmware updates, if the TV ever needs them, and would most likely be used only by a repair technician. The port does provide the 5V signal if you need it for a peripheral such as a USB Wii sensor bar.

The Westinghouse I bought 8 years ago was built like a tank. When it recently died, I took it apart and it was full of thick metal. Similarly, the stand was very heavy duty. The stand for the UW40T2BW is pretty flimsy in comparison, though I think it will hold up decently. The TV does easily wobble and needs to be somewhere very stable, though there is an included hole to screw it to the furniture if that is an option. My TV stand has a glass top.


If you want chromaticity diagrams of the standard color spaces, I have uploaded them to the image gallery. If you don't know what they mean, the gist is that the color reproduction is pretty standard to better than average for a low end TV. However, some areas look a bit blotchy. This is probably not the panel's inadequacy, but some sort of processing that is done to the picture.

I almost didn't buy this set after weeks of research leading up to Thanksgiving. The other negative reviews that I read convinced me I should fork out for a more expensive set.

I am sensitive to issues others had with dead pixels or problems, but I had no such issues and can only comment on the tv assuming that you get a unit with no problems.

The picture is extremely vibrant and rich. Do I notice some differences with higher end sets in terms of sharpness? Sure. Is there minimal increased motion blur. Sure. But, honestly, I had to really, really, really focus on the screen and stare for hours to notice anything at all.

Additionally, if you are hooking up to a computer, like I did for 1080p gaming in Assassin's Creed 3 and Hitman Absolution, the screen has a special setting for super fast response times for pc usage. Max resolution is also 1920x1080. My games looked amazing in this setting and I was so happy.

I purchased this set at Micro Center in Cambridge for $299, although the deal here is good too, although local chains might have even lower pricing.

Many of the parts for this set are made by the same factory as Toshiba. To get a set in which you definitely notice a difference in screen quality, I honestly think you would have to spend $700-800.

Given I got a TV that, sincerely, I believe is 90% as good for half the price, I am very happy and justify five stars based on quality for the price.

I am a big audio/videophile person, but given how inexpensive this was, I thought I would give Westinghouse a try and I'm really happy I did.

Two more little notes: I had to play with the brightness/contrast, etc, to get the screen to look its best.
