Question Lcd Tv

Hey ya'll I am looking at maybe upgrading my tv. Keep catching crap from the G/F about my tv being old. I was looking at maybe picking up a Westinghouse. Are they any good?

Westinghouse - 37" Flat-Panel LCD HDTV LTV-37w2
1366 x 768 resolution; HDMI-HDCP input; black/silver cabinet; 16:9 aspect ratio

Thanks for the advice and help. Slim

Well, my son got this one six weeks ago and so far its been nice. Westinghouse 42" Flat-Panel LCD HD Monitor Model: W4207. He first bought a 42" plasma but took it back the next day for this one. You can notice a little bluring (not sure what to call it) during fast moving images but I think that is normal for a LCD. Hope that helps a little.

Maybe you should give her crap about the girlfriend being old.
I like the Sharp, Panasonics and some of the LG's. check out the link and do a LCD tv search.

make sure its progressive scan, widescreen. and if the cable company starts broadcasting 1080p then your tv would again then, be out of date!

.

make sure you have more than one hdtv/hdmi ports also. I have a panasonic which I do love but it lacks additional ports. I believe new models do.

Westinghouse is a piece of ....! Don't buy it. I work with LCD/Plasma TV's. You get what you pay for. Don't buy it off the Internet, way too many scams going (B-stock, line rejects, etc.), unless the manufacturer lists the dealer as an authorized outlet.

Some days will stay a thousand years, some pass like the flash of a spark.

I bought that exact TV a few weeks ago. I did tons of research and it seems this tv is the best bang for your buck. Also asked others about it that weree also looking. We seemed to come to the same basic conclusion. That specific TV seems to be the best thing going at the moment. Best buy had them for $999 a coupoe weeks ago. They went back to $1200 sicne then though.


It's native support is 720P, but it can display 1080i(I think it looks better in its native 720P though). I saw other TV's displaying 1080P and I couldn't tell the difference. I couldn't care less about keeping up with the jones's stuff.

I use it with my XBox 360 in 720P. Its quite amazing.
