This review is from: Westinghouse 40" 1080p 120Hz LED HDTV - EW40T4FW
Has a cluster of bright, bad pixels, came with wrong screws for stand, TV channel scan does not find any channels while other TV finds several from the same roof antenna, refurbished by third party (not manufacturer) who don't return my calls
The TV arrived in the original packaging the next day after it was ordered.. Product, even though it was refurbished, was in great physical condition - no scratches etc. No paper manualwas included, just a CD recorded by refurbishing company with the pdf manual
on it. CD was thrown in a plastic bag along with 5 mloose, metal screws that scratched the disc. Insted all 5 screws being the same kind, they were of 3 different kinds so I could not attach the stand. I tried calling the customer support line of the refurbisher (note included in the box) and left 2 messages with them, but they did not return my calls. TV turns on but it has a cluster of several bad (bright) pictures in the middle of the screen. I imagine this was why the fist owner returned it. The refurbishing company (not the manufacturer) instead of refurbishing it deemed it good enough and shipped it to me (poor quality control). TV also does not find any TV channels while other similar TV hooked up to the same roof mounted antenna finds several. This may be another part that is broken, or it may just be a less sensitive "tuner" used in this model TV. If I was to return the TV, I would have to pay return shipping. The store only charged me few dollars for shipping it to me, but I it would be around 60 bucks for me to return it to them. I will speak to the store people and will update this review if they will offer me a good solution.
My advice is to stay away from refurbished goods that are not refurbished by the original manufacturer. Those 3rd party guys don't typically deliver quality services. If the issues are not resolved I will not buy from this store anymore.
