    Good performance, so/so visual design

    Posted
    EDK15

    My main use for this television is as a computer monitor and at small intervals, an ACTUAL television set. I found this set to be comparable or even cheaper in price when compared to an Insignia-brand model of the same size and features. I've owned my set for a year and it's performed well every day. The picture quality is great, the speakers are clear (especially for built-in speakers), and I haven't experienced any issue with any of the ports (I connect to my PC using HDMI). I find the colors are correct and bright to my eye, and the images are tack-sharp. Here are some cons. I noticed the television images are cropped further than usual and changing the aspect ratio doesn't help (images included). Operating the controls via rocker buttons (why?!) on the body is confusing, and after year, still gets me. The menu design is horrible, using kiddie-designed clip art. And the placement of the RF connector makes it awkward to say the least. Overall, this television is a solid choice, and although there are some visual cons (especially the cropped television image), it is overall a good TV that competes with Best Buy's "house" brand.

    It gets the job done

    I bought this to replace my 10 yr old standard 20 in TV before it could break on me. The size is decent since I don't have a large living room. The picture is clear and I like the different picture options you get by just hitting one button. The downsides are that the antenna is not as strong as the one on my old TV. I hooked up an indoor antenna and it only picked up the station down the street (which the old TV, oddly, did not) but it didn't pick up any others. And if the volume is 1/4 or so of the way to max level and whatever you are watching has a lot of bass tones, the speakers start sound tinny and have a vibration to it. I can hear it just fine the lower volume, so it doesn't happen often. Also, the AV connectors are a little touchy or maybe my cords are old. When I initially hooked up my DVD player, it didn't recognize it right away. I had to unplug and then plug them back in. I then tried connecting the VCR (yes, I still go old school) with a separate cord and I had to wiggle and make sure each connector was very snug before it recognized that cord. Now, I just switch the plugs on the back of the players rather than switch the plugs on the back of the TV. I do not have a player with HDMI yet, so I cannot comment on that feature.

    My parents had a crappy 20" Element flat screen on a cabinet in their basement in front of their treadmill. Besides being smaller than most computer monitors, the sound output crapped out a couple months ago - neither the internal nor external speakers cold be heard without tons of static. Over Black Friday I saw that this TV was only $80 (plus tax), so decided to get them an upgrade for Christmas. Hooked it up a couple days ago. The setup took all of 5 minutes, the picture looks good (from cable TV) and the sound was much better than their old TV (even when it was working). 32 inches isn't great for your primary set, unless you live in a telephone booth, but it's perfect for their use. The only negative was mounting the plastic feet on the bottom with the 4 screws, The mounting holes weren't tapped, so it was a little rough to get the screws started in the hard plastic (threaded metal inserts would have been better - but probably would have upped the manufacturing price of the set by 25 cents). All-in-all everyone is pleased with the set - especially for the Black Friday price.

    This is my first purchase of a flat screen, ever. I bought it to replace an old 1981 28" tv that I thought was blurry due to its age. This 32" LED is at least 5 times MORE blurry then my old tv. I use Mediacom and the cable box only has coaxial connections. That means I have to us the RF connection on the new tv. The picture is very blurry to the point you cannot read any text on the screen. Stationary text (like when the mediacom channel flip bar is open) is blurry and has ghost images and smeared like white/gray colors around the text. This is also appearing like that on normal cable channel viewing. I tried the "filter" that connects to the coax port that mediacom had put on my old tv to see if it would help but it changed nothing. I read about motion blur and know this is just a 720 with 60hz but did not expect to not be able to even read any text on screen. The picture looks like you are watching an old VHS tape from the 80's that is worn out. I switched back to my old Tv and the picture is actually BETTER than this LED one. I do not know why the picture is so much worse on this LED than on an old 1981 tv. I will be contacting customer service to see what can be done to clear up the picture. If there is no way to clear up the picture, I would consider this tv junk. I can get old tvs at garage sales for $10 that would be more clear than this. The picture reminds me of how the screen looked when your antenna was not right so you had ghost images and blurriness. Not something that should be showing on a cable signal on a brand new tv.

    Dorm Room TV

    Bought this for my daughter as a TV for her dorm room which is equipped with a cable outlet. We connected the TV, did the channel search and no channels were found. Repeated several times with no luck, even when changing options for the search. So, I called the Westinghouse Customer support number. I was disconnected 3 times once I chose the correct call option and then had to repeat call until I was able to reach a service agent. The agent was helpful and she told me this TV will not work unless there is a cable box since it does not have a QAM tuner. Not good. Prior to purchase, there is no way to know which tuners this tv has since it is not noted on the box and Best Buy's website does not list Tuner options in the Specifications section of the product details. End result is that the TV will be returned and exchanged for an Insignia or low end model Samsung which have QAM tuners.

    Do NOT buy from this company! My tv went out , after only having it 3 months. It has a 1 yr warranty, but Westinghouse , makes u pay postage to get it fixed! Not to mention, u have to mail it to Ontario, Canada!! So not worth it! I emailed them my pics for the tv, they claimed" we still didn't get ur email" bs... They want you to pay for everything, so you see it's not worth the hassle , and you will not spend the money to fix your tv. ( Bc it would be cheaper to have it done locally) I have found other owners of this brand of tv, and they have similar experiences. Pls look up this brand b4 you buy! Westinghouse is garbage! Don't waste your money!! You see a frozen "W" your tv is completely gone and its trash!

    Westinghouse 32" 720p TV - Very Nice

    This is a great smaller, lower cost TV if you don't need or want a Smart TV. The 720p gives excellent picture quality. It's very hard to see the picture quality difference between 720p & 1080p on a TV this size, so you can save some money over buying a 1080p one . The input versatility is better than most other similar TVs - It has 3 HDMI inputs, Not just 2, it also has a combo Composite / Component video input, not just Composite and it also has a VGA input to connect your computer! The picture quality is great, however the sound quality is not so good, but that's to be expected on most TVs of this size. It's fine for most viewing. It should be possible to connect 2.1 "powered" computer speakers to this TV since it also has a Headphone audio output jack. I have not tried that yet, but it would be a lot cheaper than a Soundbar with subwoofer!

    Discovered after I got this TV to my mom's house (gift) that it only had 2 HDMI ports and not the 3. Westinghouse on-line manual showed 3 which BestBuy listed. Westinghouse agreed to send a new TV within 3-5 weeks and ended up taking 10 (didn't return the 1st one because she doesn't live near BestBuy and I don't live near her to get it/return/get another/take new one to her). Finally received the replacement and it also had only 2 HDMI ports - and they now advise that some batches with this model # went out with 3, they had tech problems with people returning them for repair so changed them to 2. They're supposed to be fixing their website for this model and notifying BestBuy - not holding my breath on that one! Again, BestBuy did not make the mistake - it's all Westinghouse. In addition the USB slot stopped working on the 1st TV within a month. They are letting us keep that TV and the replacement one - hopefully it will last longer before breaking!

    Bought as a Black Friday special so sale price had importance in decision making. Great picture but lousy sound. No complaints about the picture, even viewing from wide angles. Audio output rated at 12 watts but is hardly room-filling. Extreme distortion in any setting other than 'Standard', even at volume levels below the 'optimal' indicator. Long warm-up time. About 5 seconds elapsed before Westinghouse logo appears, often causing repeated pressing of the Power button to make sure it was on which actually turned it off again. Power LED and IR sensor are not embedded in screen frame but are in a little plastic extension sticking out of the bottom of the frame making the bottom uneven. The IR sensor seems to be recessed too much causing remote control operation from an angle to be hit or miss, and is sluggish even from directly in front. Having 3 HDMI inputs, as well as Composite, Component and PC inputs, is a bonus. However, it would be nice if it would 'skip' unused inputs when selecting the source. A unique feature is 'source blocking' where a particular source input can be 'blocked' without entering a password. Maximum resolution for PC is only 1366x768, but then again, it is only a 720P HDTV. Overall, it is a good TV for the price.

    My first impression with this television was great until i began to have problems with it. After the first year, my television couldn't turn on and off or I couldn't turn the volume up and down with the remote. The television has no buttons on it which makes it worse. I called the customer service when I noticed the problem and they made me press remote buttons in the camera to see if i saw a light. I saw the light and they told me that there was a problem with the television, and there is nothing they could do to help after a year. They don't fix the television or anything so I'm out of luck and have to buy a whole new tv, because the volume is loud and won't turn down at ALL! My friend also had the same problem with this company. My father has a older television (SHARP) and no problems. Never dropped television, it has been in the same place since I got the television. Shouldn't have a problem like this... never again, and DO NOT make the same mistake my friend and I did.

    Not Bad for the Price

    I got this on sale for $99 so it's hard to beat that. Screen is big. 32in diagonal is plenty big especially if you use full aspect ratio on the setup. Easy hookup and simple setup. Picture is ok as is, but I only have the antenna coax going into my cable box so hooking an HDMI cable would probably improve the pic quality but it's still ok. Sound is not bad if you set it up with the base turned up to max. Otherwise your best bet is a sound bar or external powered speakers. It's a good buy at $99 and maybe an "ok" buy at $149. My only complaint is that the legs (stand) are as wide as the screen which made finding the right position on my console a bit of a challenge. I wish the thing had a centered stand instead. 4 of 5 stars.

    I have always purchased Westinghouse TV’s for myself and I love them, they seem to last forever. None of my family buys this brand and their tv’s always die or have problems. Anyways, the only reason I give 4 stars is because it gives off quite a bit of heat as opposed to my old Westinghouse (which still works after almost 9 years, I just couldn’t fit it in my car when I moved from Florida so I gave it to my roomie). Also, you can turn the brightness down but it really is still kind of bright, just not as clear. Regardless, for the price, you can’t beat it. I’m excited to see what channels I pick up with an antenna when I get one. The digital tuner in my old Westinghouse was amazing so I hope this one is close to being as good.

    We bought two of these in June 2016 when they were on sale for $119. One to use as a monitor and the other as a TV for the kitchen. The TV has every sort of connection slot you'd want. I'm using the old old VGA cable that was on the monitor I replaced with one of the TVs. The picture is great anyway. Sharp, bright, and letters aren't fuzzy. However, the one in the kitchen, while hooked up to a digital HD cable box via HDMI isn't. Words have a fuzzy halo around each letter, the programming for adjusting the picture is limited and we're unable to get it better than it is. Maybe a different cable would help, don't know and don't want to spend the money on one. Both TVs have good sound, multiple connections, can be wall mounted, and are so lightweight they can be picked up and moved with one hand. On the bottom right are volume, channel, menu, source, and power buttons so we can lose a remote and still use the TV.

    The picture is really clear considering its only 720p. Elated about the 3 HDMI ports. It was a great sale as well!! The tech who helped me with this product the second time around was extremely helpful. I bought 2 of these at first and connected the first one no problem, connected the second one no problem but when I went to turn on the second one the screen was broken - fortunately the Customer Service at Best Buy were extremely helpful in helping me replace it - didn't care for a newer/fancier model was happy with that one, and the technician helped me get it. Thank you!!!

    Somewhat Lacking in functions.

    Posted
    steveNSD

    OK, this would get a 5 star rating based on price & picture BUT! It is sorely lacking in ordinary functions.. those off the top of my head are as follows: * NO TIME NO CLOCK * NO GUIDE other than what you are watching at the moment, cannot scan forward to see what program is next. UNBELIEVABLE! * NO ASPECT change if you are connected to say a Youtube video and want to make it appear in cinema. no option, no can do.. * Freeze frame, pause of picture or whatever you want to call it. AMAZING! * REMOTE unit is so small, must have been designed for ages 8 and under, sure doesn't fit an adult finger tips, keys too close together, my android phone is as easy to use. I'm sure i missed something but be warned that it is sorely lacking in common accessories, not "bells and whistles" but BASIC functionality.

    Quality HD TV works with Xbox One

    A quality TV with the right amount of HDMI ports. Works well with Xbox One. Only complaint is the remote isn't 100% responsive when turning on and off the TV. In addition, pressing power ON button will take 10-20 seconds before the TV turns on. This delay makes it seem like the TV isn't working at first. I have even seen where the press of the ON button on the remote or the TV doesn't work; I had to press it again and wait patiently. In comparison, a Sony HD TV takes 5-8 seconds to power on but doesn't have any delay in response from the remote. Overall, a great budget TV that delivers a good picture.

    A friend bought this while with me for her son's room. She was cutting the cord at her home and had to upgrade from the CRT TV she had in his room. This Westinghouse was a good price (and happened to be part of a Flash Sale while we were in the store!). Nothing too stellar here. It fit the bill for her to hook up a Playstation and a ROKU. She was able to set and hook up all by herself. A selling point that I liked was on a display of this size (32" @ 720p) there were three HDMI inputs. However, that's about the only frills offered. For a child's room or as a secondary display in the house, especially if you have set top boxes or game systems already, this is a fine buy.

    Honestly, this was a purchase out of convenience and price. My family TV went out on Christmas day, and I picked this up because it was cheap and it would give us something to watch. I would recommend this tv to anyone on a budget, who doesn't need more than 720p. It runs 60fps with no lag whatsoever, and very little gaming input lag. Also an unadvertised feature, if an input it 1080p, it will downgrade the signal to a crisp 720p without much loss. Only caveat would be that if all HDMI ports are being used, there is a chance of distortion on some of the inputs, but that's easily remedied with a splitter or partially unplugging one port. Could bring it back, but I can live with it for the price.

    Bought this television for my daughter for Christmas. After looking at many models on display in the store, I found this t.v. to have many optional inputs that would be "handy" for my daughter (i.e. USB, multiple HDMI, etc). I was NOT satisfied with the volume levels on the .t.v.'s on display but found this t.v. had a much louder volume level which did not require a sound bar. This t.v. does offer 2 different sound bar output options. The color and picture quality is great. Another great option was that the t.v. already had the size of screws needed to attach this t.v. to a wall bracket (which the particular wall mount bracket I had bought, did not have the exact size of screws).

    No Digital Channels

    Posted
    Will

    This TV will NOT receive digital channels when connected directly with the cable from a cable company. You must use a DVR or some type of sit top box, hooked up with hdmi or other hookup, to receive digital channels. Spent a lot of time scanning for channels because it appears it should display the number of digital channels it locates. Finally called Westinghouse Support and they informed me that the TV is not capable of displaying digital channels when hooked directly to a cable from a cable company. WOW, I have a flat screen from 2005 that has the same capabilities of this new Westinghouse TV!!
