I was skeptical. Was looking for a TV to replace a 40" Samsung I've had for about 7 years. The Samsung was top of the line, full feature 1080p, 120Hz which I paid about $1,500 for, and I really liked the picture and sound quality but unfortunately it did not last as long as I expected. After 3 years I started having problems with it due to under spec capacitors on the power board which I replaced twice. Needless to say I am not too happy about that purchase.
Anyway, I wanted a replacement that had the same features and a bit larger, but after just buying a house recently my budget is tight. The TV is for a downstairs den and used mostly for sports viewing, occasional movies and gaming, so wanted full HD with the 120 Hz refresh rate. Looked for several months until this one popped up during a search. $348 for a TV this size and with these features is as low as you can get.
This is my first Westinghouse product and I was skeptical but the price was good and to be honest, after almost always going top names on electronics such as Sony, LG and Samsung, I now think that you overpay for the name as from my experience the quality is not much better and not worth the premium.
Another TV I was looking at was the 50" Sceptre. I bought a 32" Sceptre for my son 2 years ago and have had no problems with it and it seems to be good quality as well. So I would recommend that brand as well, for the budget conscious. The price on this Westinghouse was just too good to pass up though. So far I am very happy with my purchase.
