Good for the price 06/17/2013
This review is from: Westinghouse 40" 1080p 120Hz LED HDTV - EW40T4FW
Obviously the first pro is that it's cheap. For the specifications you're buying, you can't beat this price. The video quality is good when using HDMI cables with HD devices. There are plenty of inputs to choose from, also.
I have another, off brand TV, of the same size and specs but this brand seems to have better video quality then the similarly priced competitors.
The cosmetic design is attractive in my opinion having a brushed aluminium look around the screen. This TV overall is a nice, thin width which is nice to see for modern TV's.
There were two problems I ran into when I first set up this TV.
The first issue was in order to receive audio out from any of the RCA or Component inputs, the "Audio In" jack on one specific input HAD to be used. In example, I was hooking my Nintendo Wii up to this TV with an improved definition (5 pin Component) cable (made by Nintendo®) into the HD (5 pin) Component input. No sound would come from the Wii out of the TV's speakers until I switched the Audio L and R to the other RCA (3 pin) input while leaving the video in the other Component (5 pin) input. It seemed no matter what device I tried to make work the Audio In had to be plugged into the standard RCA input. This is strange because when you select an input with the TV remote, it didn't matter which input you chose sound ALWAYS played out of the RCA input while the video would be from another input.*(see Other Thoughts)
The other issue I ran into was with the audio settings themselves in the menu. Right out of the box the settings were set to the wrong things. I know this because whenever I turned the volume up past about 1/4 of the way on, the bass would bottom out and become scratchy and unable to hear. I fixed this, however, by turning off all the sound effects options so no real harm. This was just unprofessional in my opinion to have been sent straight to the customer like this. I'm sure many non-tech savvy people would not have thought to go deep into the menus and by trial and error resolve this major concern.
*I figured this was an internal issue unresolved from the refurbishing process and thought it would be a huge hassle to do an RMA. Not to mention I would be out a TV for several weeks if they even did accept it.
Overall a good TV for the price.
