    Best Buy? More like Bad Buy!

    I came across this great deal on a 50" TV for an upgrade in my new home. Didn't know much about the Westinghouse brand, but the reviews appears reliable enough. So, I bought the TV for a great price and received the first one two days later... with the screen shattered. I proceeded to contact BB to request a replacement, which arrived yesterday ( a shipping delay of four days compared to the original product). To my joy, the screen was not pulverized and I proceeded to install. Fast forward, there is an error in the HDMI input that every time I turn my television off and back on, I lose signal to the television. To troubleshoot, I brought my old TV back into the room to double check is wasn't my peripheral devices, and the everything worked fine (just on a smaller screen). My two cents... avoid this TV. Spend the extra money. I am about to return this second television for the refund, choose another online vendor (amazon), and pay more for a TV and be happy about it. You have failed here Best Buy, and you have lost the confidence of a lifelong purchaser who just loves to come to your brick and mortar locations to play with goodies. I am breaking up with you!

    My fiancé and I just got this with my student deals discount yesterday. We set it up last night and we LOVE it! The only reason I gave 4/5 stars is because the sound is very sensitive. It goes up extremely loud, which might be good for some. On ours for everyday watching, we have the volume set very low so it wouldn’t be the best choice, necessarily, for background noise. Westinghouse is an awesome brand. It’s durable, sleek, and lasts forever. The trim on the edges of the tv is very small and minimal, making this look even more sleek. This is the absolute best deal I’ve scored in a while. No more squinting at the tv to read (we had a 40” prior to this tv), so 9” was PLENTY big enough for our living room. You just can’t beat this price for a Westinghouse. Plus, Best Buy will price match. We looked all over to find and even cheaper price and this one came out on top. Thanks Best Buy! This is a great purchase!!!

    I was able to pick up two of these units for $150 each when Best buy had them on sale a few weeks ago. I use them excusively with Zwift, hooked up to my Apple TV. The colors and detail aren't as good as my current Samsung 1080p TV that I bought a few years ago, but for the price I paid, only $150 each, they are an awesome value! I wanted a cheap large TV for my Zwift setup (road bike and treadmill), and these TVs worked out wonderfully! The only small issue is, the sound takes a few seconds to turn on, when the TV first turns on, or you switch the video source input. This is not a deal breaker of course, but what do you expect for only a $150 TV? I would definitely buy these TVs again, even if they cost $200 each. Great value for what you get! By the way, it's a huge bonus, that I can connect them to my Windows computer, using the VGA input, built into the TVs.

    Ok. You know what you are getting at this price point and you expect it to do its job and have a semi decent picture. This tv does its job and is great if you are looking for a low budget, semi-larger tv. I would highly recommend this for a bedroom tv. If you are expecting to use this as a primary tv, don’t be disappointed when it’s not what you expected. It was easy to set up, easy to mount and the hdmi ports work well for external streaming devices. Grab this while you find a sale and it’s a steal. Great for a garage tv, mounting in an garden tub nook, or spare bedroom. The sound is actually pretty good with the internal speakers in a bedroom. Pretty good picture for the money and a younger teen will be satisfied with having a larger tv to show off in their room.

    The TV worked OK, except for the sound which was cutting off sometimes every few minutes. It would cut off for a fraction of a second and then come back. I bought one westinghouse tv and had to return it because of this sound issue. Then, we exchanged the unit for a different tv of the same brand, but the new tv kept doing the same thing. I had to return the second one and will be buying another brand.

    Everything I could ask for at this size for only 150 bucks. This is my 2nd Westinghouse TV and they’ve made some improvements—the remote on this TV works better and feels better than the one for the larger TV I bought last year. Others mention sound but I don’t think it’s any better or worse than the built in speakers on most flat screens. Using this one in my bedroom and was happy it has a dedicated sleep timer button, many new TVs don’t.

    A 5 based on the price. I bought this as a punt because I could not choose which high end 65 inch to buy and this fit in my trunk. Eight months later it is still my primary TV. The picture is great but I did add a sound bar. I am not a videophile but I do watch a lot of tv, play bluray and even run my laptop through this screen.

    Tv was great for the price. Remote is very cheap so I recommend buying a universal remote. The sound is very loud and even on the lowest setting is still loud on some channels, or so my spouse says when trying sleep and I’m watching news. Tv is not a smart tv but that’s ok since I use he antenna and a fire stick

    OK your not going to buy this as a reference theater system but for a bedroom set like I am using it for it is more than a deal for the price. Like others have said the lowest volume is slightly louder than expected so if you want to fall asleep with it on as background it might take some getting used to.

    The quality of the TV is very good for a 49in, especially at the price I paid. This was definitely a big upgrade for me, going from a 32in to this. Audio quality is really good when turned up at least halfway. Anything below half and the audio is not the greatest, might just be my setup though.

    The power cord was not connected and could heard rattling around inside the unit. We couldn't even turn it on to be able t say anything more about it. We returned this for a refund and went back to Vizio. Their TVs are better packaged for shipping and the cord gets plugged into the TV, avoiding the possibility of this situation.

    I bought this TV on sale. The sound and quality are good for the price, I use it in a bedroom. It is NOT a smart TV like a Roku TV but I have a firestick and it works great with it. If you only have cable it would be fine. If you stream video factor in cost of streaming device.

    It’s a nice little tv has a nice picture. I bought it for my elderly father in law after his tv died. The only thing I noticed is the sound isn’t that great but that’s fixable with a sound bar. I definitely don’t regret purchasing it especially for the price I got it for!

    Ordered one and picked it up in store. Plugged everything in and the tv worked great.....for 5 minutes. Now it only shows a blank screen no matter what button I press. Very disappointing. Will be returning as soon as I get the chance and not going back to this brand.

    I purchased this as a spare television for the man cave. It works perfect and looks awesome above the bar! Not that you need two TVs in one room, but it's a great little television for a side room. Picture is Great, Sound is okay, but for the value you cannot be it.

    This TV was a replacement for us after our toddler threw a toy and broke the screen of our previous 55 in Insignia. Speakers are much better than last TV. No need to connect to sound bar. So far, we are satisfied.

    I am so mad at myself for not getting the TV that I wanted on Cyber Monday(Westinghouse - 50" Class - LED - 2160p - Smart - 4K UHD TV with HDR). It sold out quickly. I chose this one as a second option and it is a pretty good TV. No complaints so far.
