I paid about $600 for TV and had it LESS than 2 years. The Walmart return time was expired (30 days on electronics), the Westinghouse Warranty expired (6 months). Cost to repair $235, and repair person said it will probably go out again in a couple of years, due to a manufacturer defect. This was a TV that was rarely on; maybe 2 or 3 times a month. While it was working it was fine, didn't have the best sound quality, but we just purchased an inexpensive reciever and hooked up to some high quality speakers that we already had; no complaints. Then one day it just stopped coming on. Very disappointed on the $ that I wasted on this TV; will never purchase electronics from Walmart again.
Since we all use portable generators in one form or another I thought it may be a good idea to pass on the latest scam I uncovered involving Westinghouse Portable Generators to those new to Small Cabin living that demonstrate \"if it looks to good to be true it usually is\".\n\nHere are the facts on this latest scam using an old US company name to sell cheap Chinese products of which I am 100% confident after in depth research and speaking to Westinghouse and their Support Supplier (Billious) that the reviews have being \"Stacked\".\n\nI called Westinghouse Corporate and yes this is a legit sub division of Westinghouse Electric Company, now sit down and get ready, I called 10 of their Dealer Support numbers (From their own site) for my area and beyond (that Westinghouse shows are their authorized service centers) and 100% said they either never heard of them or or NOT providing factory support for Westinghouse products, this is a typical Chinese (Dumping Ploy), like All Power, Powerhouse, ETC and on, they just grab numbers from a phone book and claim them as their support centers and it gets even better.....replacement parts are either non existent or you have to be a service dealer to get them from \"Billious\"....see where this is going...it's called a brick wall and what happens when people buy PRICE and not Product!\n\nBilliou's is the service and support supplier unfortunately they ONLY sell to Support Dealers and if you are not a registered Support Dealer and you need a part you are S.O.L. to make matters worse even they are having a hard time even getting parts to get to dealers and service centers that DON'T EXIST!\n\nBest advice.....AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE, this is NOT the same Westinghouse company we grew up with., think Maytag, Whirlpool, Speedqueen, Lakewood, Pelonis and the list is endless of former US companies now in Chinese hands but still using their recognized names.
