IT'S NO LONGER a brand that means QUALITY!!!
JUST a name to sell inferior products.
And that's the truth.

and drink spring water
Anything else and your will be ill.

Honestly ...who are you 2 guys with such proclamations!?
Just fast opinions based on nothing....
Seems Westinghouse LCDs do get good reviews: just check other video and buying sites to see the opinions.......................

Lajim1000 got a defective one and knows little and was told to buy an amplifier by someone who wanted to sell an amplifier.
Lajim1000: Please return the unit for one that works before your return period is over.

i stare at these's tv's 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. i've put them with antenna's on hd and sd. i've had customers ***** me out for selling them the westing house because they were not happy. every other one we sell gets exchanged for a higher end tv. our displays break every other week and we need to send it out to service. we've compared it on the same signals on hd and sd to different tv's.

you base your opinion on other people's opinions (or you call them reviews). how are opinions on this forum different from "reviews" that random people put on a place like where anyone can write reviews. i base my opinion on the fact that i've seen many different versions of westing house tv's...and they all have been horrible. what do you base your opinion's on? other people's more thought out opinions?

Pro: hd pic great, sound good, options on remote great, viewing angle good, portability great, standard tv broadcast good, outputs and inputs great. Paid 899 at best buy and got what I expected.

Let's approach this differently
by Dan Filice / July 4, 2006 3:05 AM PDT

You say that you bought an amp and the sound is still problematic. How are you using an amp? Are you bypassing the speakers in the TV? If you are still using the TV speakers, how is your amp hooked up? If you have separate speakers hooked to an amp and you are not using the TV speakers and you still have audio problems, then it's not the TV. I would hook your cable to your VCR "IN", then take the VCR audio "OUT" and plug those into the amp. Hook separate speakers to the amp and listen. Do you stil have an audio problem? At this point, you have bypassed the TV speakes entirely and if the problem still exists, then the problem isn't your TV.

Westinghouse is no longer a quality product. Take it back while you can!

Worst TV I have ever owned. Once on after 20 minutes, it starts jumping for 2-5 minutes. Westingshouse has been very little help.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
