4 out of 5 eggsWestinghouse

Pros: Cheap, large display.

Cons: Had to jump through hoops to get 1900x1200 via dvi to HDMI. To do this download and install moninfo (google it) once installed start the software and select file from menu and creat INF. Save the inf file you created and go to device manager and updater driver using the manual "Have Disk" option. I named the INF file I created Westinghouse LN26. Go into the monitor menu and select DVD/HDMI option. You may have to select and alternative resolution and simply switch back to 1900x1200. It works like a charm after that and the colors using the HDMI are so much more vivid and sharper that what I was seeing with the VGA cable.

Other Thoughts: DVI/HDMI fix -

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Despite being a TN panel, this screen is very clear, with bright colors and good contrast. There's no light bleeding around the outside edges at all. I use this for both my Xbox 360 and my PC, with the PC hooked up to the VGA input and the Xbox hooked up via HDMI. While it would be nice to have more than one HDMI or an extra DVI connection, I still get a good analog picture through the VGA cable at 1920x1200.

While the trend has been to equip all the new LCD's with glossy screens, this screen has the older style matte finish. The glossy screens always look great at the store in person, but once you get them home and see how much glare they pick up, they don't seem like such a great idea. I have this screen next to a window that the sun shines in all day and have absolutely no glare on the screen at all on the brightest days.

A full 26 inches of glory for a reasonable price is a great deal. It's perfect for gaming, sound production, video production, and watching movies.

Cons: The buttons on the side are terribly placed. I found that half the time I tried to switch inputs to play my Xbox that I would hit the power button instead. I got used to where they were after a while but I'm still aggravated by it.

The built-in speakers are worthless. Unless you're using them for for basic Windows use, you're better off ignoring the fact that they're even there. Then again, most built-in speakers are worthless.

Other Thoughts: I picked this monitor up for $320 after tax when it retailed for $499.99 over a dispute with my experience at Best Buy. I wouldn't pay over $400 for this particular screen, but anything less than that I'd consider to be a good deal.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: It looks pretty when its off. Good thing New Egg lets you return this for a replacement.

Cons: The Unit arrived in a non-functional state. It appeared to have been returned once. The serial number was 524DB74500508. Using a Mac Powerbook 1.25Ghz, and the DVI to HDMI connector there was no signal. With the VGA cable, it would briefly flash on when the Detect monoitor command was activated but wouldn' stay on more than 0.3 seconds. My Dell laptop wouldn't connect with it either. The monitors built in menu wouldn't display, then I realized with a lot of light on the unit, a ghost of an image like a black and white LCD image on an old palm pilot would appear, but was unreadable. Clearly there was something profoundly wrong with it. The manual is TERRIBLE in all five languages. It's very hard to disassemble the base if you need to return it. If I could switch brands I would. I alm especially irritated it seems previously opened. If you get a DOA one, check the serial number with the one posted here.

Other Thoughts: Very poor is not low enough. There should be a DOA or non-functional rating too. Very poor implys it works a little, just very shoddy. This didn't work at all. The only bright spot appears to be I can get another one, lets hope that isn't messed up too. Unfortunately I can't get a different brand. I never want a westinghouse again.

4 out of 5 eggsNice picture, not easy to set up

Pros: Amazing huge screen, vibrant color, attractive unit. I am successfully running 1900x1200 with the provided DVI - HDMI cable.

Cons: Not easy to set up. I *thought* the HDMI input wasn't working, but its actually just really hard to get it set for digital input -- there is no auto-sensing of input. Reduced brightness does cause noise to come out of the integrated speakers. Muting the speakers via the monitor config menu. remedies this problem. Menu system is a little clumsy and requires some trial and error to figure out. Instruction manual is awful.

Other Thoughts: How to configure for HDMI input: Plug in HDMI - DVI cable on both ends. Boot up computer, set it for 1900x1200, go to monitor tab & make sure you are set for 60hz refresh rate. (Having a VNC connection or some other remote desktop is very helpful for this)

(Button numbers are top to bottom, 1-6) Press button 6 to turn monitor on. As soon as the screen lights up, press button 5 to get the input selector. Press button 4 to change from analog (default) to digital. Press button 5 again to save/exit. You have to do all this pretty quickly, it took me a few tries.

But, all things considered, I'm very happy with this monitor so far. All the cons above affect very little around day-to-day use and are only minor inconveniences at setup time.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor

Pros: Great contrast and color. Comes with cables for both inputs. I've owned a Westinghouse 17" monitor a few years back and it worked great so I am familiar with the brand. It doesn't weigh a ton, very light monitor for LAN'ing. Size impresses my friends.

Cons: Switching from HDMI to Dsub is a pain, have to use menu. There might be a shortcut but I haven't bothered to find it, used to using the buttons on the right side of the monitor. Wish the stand enabled for height adjustment, I like to look straight and not down. Minor flaw imo.

Other Thoughts: HDMI works like it should. It's 1920 x 1080, not 1920 x 1200 (or whatever the horizontal rez should be for the 1200 vertical). Saw some people complaining about the former resolution, it's HDMI. Dsub works fine at that resolution but HDMI is a totally different format.

I use a 4870 ATI card and the picture is flawless, no "stretching" at 1920 x 1080. ATI card has a way of making sure this "stretching" doesn't happen. I'm sure nVidia cards can do the same thing.

2 out of 5 eggsFlawed HDMI input

Pros: Big, bright, TN panel keeps it inexpensive but color banding will show in some cases and viewing angle is limited. Design matches the other Westinghouse monitors from the same series well (19", 22", 24").

Cons: HDMI input will not work correctly at 1920x1200 resolution for me in Windows Vista or Windows XP. I have tried both ATI HD4850 and Nvidia 6150 and neither works. At 1920x1080 the screen looks pretty normal except for the "stretching" taking 1080 vertical pixels to 1200. When set to 1920x1200 @ 60Hz, the monitor looks horrible and the information menu incorrectly shows 960x1200 as the input resolution.

When I called Westinghouse support about this problem, they insisted that the monitor is "plug and play" and they couldn't see how there was a problem with the HDMI input. They suggested I just return the monitor to the store and try another one, there are no firmware updates or display drivers to try.

Another con is that the built-in speakers make a buzzing noise as you lower the brightness. Worst at 0, no noise at 100. This can be solved if you turn the speakers to "mute" in the menu, most people won't be using them anyway.

Other Thoughts: I did try with several different HDMI cables, since some folks online said they had luck with that. A Monoprice DVI->HDMI and a DVIgear heavy-duty HDMI 1.3 cable using the ATI HDMI adapter.

I believe I am having problems since the firmware version is 001. The only success stories that I have found with HDMI at 1920x1200 was with firmware level 000. Why Westinghouse "broke" this functionality in a later release of their firmware is beyond my comprehension.

Probably would have been perfect if they had included a DVI input in addition to the HDMI one. Most consumer HDMI devices only support up to 1080p anyway, which would have worked fine.

Check out the thread on Hardforum. I ignored the advice there and thought I could get it working on my PC.

4 out of 5 eggsResolution Problems?

Pros: If you set it up right you'll get a great picture

Cons: Need to edit driver files to make resolution come in correctly.

Other Thoughts: When I moved from my 8800's to 9800 gx2s i got blurry display that looked out of focus or too "sharpened." I spent hours trying to figure it out and i finally did. The card recognizes the monitor as a TV instead of a monitor and somehow that screws up the display. (I use a DVI-D->HDMI cable). So you need to edit a file when you install the drivers. This is for NVIDIA only!:

Start the driver setup
after the files unzip stop the installation
open the folder containing the unzipped files
find nv4_disp file
find the line [nv_softwaredevicesettings]
insert the line under the above line:

HKR,, OverrideEdidFlags0, %REG_BINARY%, 5c,85,80,51,00,00,FF,FF,04,00,00,00,7E,01,00

the first 4 digits/letters are the EDID for the westinghouse 26" (5c,85,80,51)

if your monitor is different search google for your models #'s EDID.

5 out of 5 eggsFollowup review

Pros: I noticed many reviews recently complaining about hdmi. All I can say is that I have had this for four months with no problems, no whine, and running at 1920 x 1200 HDMI on a new system with 8800 GTS with beautiful picture. I am using separately purchased DVI-HDMI cable from other site for pretty cheap.

Cons: Will have to wait and see as to long-term reliability in a relatively untested brand (unlike my usual Samsung). The default brightness is WAY too high for such a large screen -- this may be causing the eyestrain mentioned by some. I lowered to 50% or less immediately and it looks perfect and I have never had the problems mentioned.

Other Thoughts: I use this purely for gaming, especially TF2, with no problems. Make sure your settings are to digital rather than analog as DVI/HDMI will NOT work if you are set to analog and you will need to use a VGA cable until you change this setting. For all I know the included cable may be junk.. I never even tried it.

3 out of 5 eggs1920x1200?

Pros: good value for a tight budget, Good picture and color, didn't notice any ghosting in games, the monitor itself looks very appealing... It work well except for an issue I'll cover later. When you unwrap this you will be very happy about the size of this thing.

Cons: Bought it from BB for 20 bucks more... just for the piece of mind and because of the eggs pixel policy. This thing absolutely does not work in 1920x1200 using the HDMI port. period. The customer service guys will act like it should, but they should know it doesn't. exchanged it only to get the same result with another unit. One westinghouse guy tried to tell me my HD3870 might not support 1920x1200... please. then they said it might be video card-monitor incompatibility... not worth my time. Everything else worked fine and looked great.

Other Thoughts: I washed my hands of this piece of junk... it's the principle of the matter. Just tell me i have to use VGA to get 1920x1200 resolution (didn't test the vga). all drivers are up to date, even tried other vid cards... same result. In my opinion a monitor should just work... you know, like they used to? Other than that it's a great unit, I just couldn't get over the fact that a 24" monitor can't display it's NATIVE res with the an HDMI port! anyone that gets the hdmi port to work in 1920x1200 post how you did it here so I can regret returning this otherwise great monitor.
