Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This Westinghouse is one surprising TV. It delivers great performance in a slender package and at a decent price point.

What works well?
###########

++ TV is ultra thin, and attractive, with a really unobtrusive bezel with a nice knurled finish.
++ Setup was a breeze. Fasten the base using 4 screws, connect your input devices, and power up!
++ Uses a faster refresh rate of 120Hz to reduce motion blur.
++ Default picture settings were more than adequate.
++ The control menus are very intuitive (except for a couple of picture controls found in the Power Settings menu).
++ Impressive array of connection options. You have a coax input, a VGA input, 2 HDMI inputs, and even a composite video input.
++ Excellent remote design. There are a ton of hard buttons for common uses - which means less hunting through menus. You can pick the input, turn on CC, change the aspect ratio, display the program guide, mute audio, and more, just using these hard buttons.

So what doesn't work well?
##################

-- Sound output is its Achilles heel. As with most other flat panel TVs, you really need an external amplifier.
-- Its controls provide only a limited range, which is a problem if you are really picky about your picture.
-- No component video input.

Conclusion
########

Overall, its picture impressed us - right out of the box. Colors were natural, black levels looked spot on, and even the color temperature looked just fine. We are using this in our fitness area, where it works great. Given what it delivers, this is definitely a 4-star product. Slightly better audio and more video control range would have made this a truly exceptional TV.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Overall this Westinghouse LED TV seems like a pretty decent TV. The picture quality is quite nice. The sound is not quite where It should be. Wouldn't say it's bad but it sounds a bit tinny and voices can be low while other sounds are loud. The speakers are rated at 10watts each.

One odd thing has to do with the physical screen depth. It has a very thin profile on the upper half as most LED backlit TVs do, but the lower half ends up being quite fat because of the speaker housings. The top is about 3/4" thick, while the bottom balloons out to 2-3/4". This may not sound like much but if you planned to mount it to a wall and wanted a very flush look, this set is not for you. Not a problem if mounted to the table stand, however. The listing claims a 'super slim 1.5" edge profile, with a Maximum thickness of 1.5" for an easy fit in any space or on any wall'.

My son noted that it comes with a very primitive remote control. It has all the functions you might want, but it will only control the TV (not other devices as some do) and it is not an example of good ergonomic design. It also feels quite flimsy and may not hold up well to heavy use. It'll do the job, but not much more.

While on the subject of remotes, my son has used one of the well regarded Logitech Harmony universal remotes and has setup many different devices on it in the last 3 or 4 years with not a single bit of trouble. With this Westinghouse TV however he was unable to get the Power button to function at all with theHarmony 600 remote. All other functions from the original remote work just fine when programmed into the Harmony, but not power, which quite obviously is a very necessary feature.

Bought this last month at Costco. Great deal. Super light and thin. Seemed like a great TV for the price. And then tonight, for no discernible reason, the TV screen light fanned out and the left side of the screen became dimmer than the right side. Nothing seems to fix it. Like part of the picture tube or whatever LEDs use to project the image blew out. Thank heavens it's still within Costco's 90-day return window but too quick for a TV to act up.

I've had this tv for about 6 months and it's great! No problems, no worries. One thing I would mention though is that Target also sells this TV, I got it on sale for $330, so there are better prices around (normally I think it's $370).

We bought this TV at Costco - actually we bought two, thinking the first one was just a lemon. If you read the review from 10/1/12, the reviewer nails it. It is as if there's a ghost living in the TV. It turns itself on randomly. It raises its own volume - all the way up - randomly. And when you try lowering it, the TV fights against you and the remote to keep the volume high. It also keeps defaulting to the cable menu, several times a day, so you have to keep resetting your cable choices. At first we thought it was a faulty remote, so we took the batteries out of it...and the TV continued doing all of these things without a remote.

I had Costco and Westinghouse on the phone one day. The Westinghouse rep said she had "never heard of these problems", which is ludicrous considering several reviewers here have complained about the same problems. After returning the second one we bought, Costco told us that many of these had been returned with the same complaints. Its a shame because it has a nice picture and decent sound. You're better off spending a little more, like we did, and getting a better TV. We ended up with a 42" Sony Bravia, 120 Hz like this one. Much better picture and sound - no problems whatsoever. Do not buy unless you don't mind being driven crazy by your TV.
