    NOT OK 4K

    Posted
    TBDISSATISFIED

    4K is not OK with Westinghouse ABSOLUTE WORST PRODUCT I’VE EVER PURCHASED: BUYER BEWARE! I’m certainly NOT a whiner, but I’m going to whine a little bit about Westinghouse. I purchased this TV at a reputable national retailer and it lasted 4 weeks and 6 days. I simply stopped turning on. I consulted technical support to try and solve the problem, but was told to exchange the unit. 4 weeks and 6 days is just a few days past time for the retailer not to honor its in store exchange policy so I contacted Westinghouse customer support to troubleshoot and initiate the warranty process. Westinghouse made the process sound very simple: Take a picture of the front, back, serial number on the unit and original receipt of the TV for approval by the Westinghouse warehouse team. That was easy. I then explained that since I expected my TV to work for more than 5 weeks, I discarded the original packaging. I asked if they would ship my new unit so that I can use the box of the new TV to send the old back. I was told that this is common and I should receive the TV within a few days of the pictures clearing the warehouse quality check. What happened next is comical. I got an email from Westinghouse stating that they cannot locate a technician in my area to uninstall the old TV and install the new one… I live in a major metropolitan area. They’ve got to be kidding. Besides, I’m just unboxing it, turning it on and sending the old one back. Then they tell me that, I would have to locate a box, pay for shipping and insurance on the product on its way back to their California warranty return center and had to do so within 30 days. This sounded a little like getting a company to honor a rebate, so I emailed back to ask if I really have to be burdened with all of this labor to exchange this faulty product. To which they replied, yes and provided me with the shipping instructions. I’ve spent a week trying to locate box and a shipper that can come to my home to pick up a box of this size (as it doesn’t fit in my car and exceeds residential UPS/FedEx weight and size limit). This morning, I received an email from Westinghouse stating that my warranty case won’t be honored because I failed to contact them within 7 days of their shipping instructions. I’ve never in my life felt so upset at a major (or relatively minor) manufacturer over how they treat customers of their faulty products. You are a fool to purchase a Westinghouse anything. Pay a little extra, because you’re likely to have to pay much more later for your bad decision.

    An Excellent UHD 4K Smart TV

    Well, how do I start? First off, this was an excellent purchase. As an avid user of all streaming media, and having my own YouTube Channels, and editing Music Videos, I needed something at a UHD 4K level that wouldn’t drain my pockets. After days of research and comparing different Makes and Models under the $500.00 price tag, this was an excellent buy. Considering Westinghouse has been in the industry for over 130 years, and was the first company to introduce the Quick-Start TV’s. (The older tube TV’s had to warm up before being able to show a picture.) I knew this was the choice to make, and after receiving my unit, I was not disappointed. I’ve seen some reviews with negative ratings only because they’re not doing what they’re supposed to do. You don’t buy a new car without adjusting the rearview mirrors or adjusting the drivers’ seat. Same goes with high-end TV’s. You just don’t “plug and play” with factory settings. Every environment has different lighting surroundings, as well as acoustic reflections. My advice is this, adjust the Levels of your Bass and Treble in the Audio, and adjust the Brightness, and Color in the Picture to your liking. Set the Sharpness two to three notches less than the full setting. Make sure your Screen Temperature is set to Normal, not Cool or Warm. If I say any more, I’d have to charge you. Yeah, do some work. You’re investing in a product that you’re supposed to enjoy for years to come, make it worth your while.

    Even the Manual says it freezes

    Posted
    cd23

    I was very impressed by this tv because the picture quality seemed great and it was such a steal....but I soon realized that it really was too good to be true. On the third day of having this tv, I pressed the power button on the controller to turn it off, but the tv just went black and was obviously still on. I tried other buttons and even tried my Comcast controller, but nothing worked. After reading the manual, I found out that (and I quote), "The tv may freeze up during use. Disconnect the power cord from the power socket for a few minutes. Reconnect the power cord and try to operate again as usual." WAIT....WHAT? If it explicitly says this in the manual, why is this not in the description of the item for customers to clearly see? This freezing continued to happen every time I turned the tv off, which meant I had to unplug and plug it back in every time I used the tv. I had read reviews before I purchased, and thought that the bad reviews were few and far in between, but the freezing is an actual thing! I went back to Best Buy, even though it was a couple days after the 15 days allotted to return or exchange an item, and they allowed me to go ahead and exchange it since it was such a new tv. A+ rating for Best Buy customer service, F rating for Westinghouse quality and the lack of warning by Best Buy online. You get what you pay for.

    Very bad television

    So I have never been one to write reviews, but I felt the need to warn other people after the terrible experience I just had with this tv and the manufacturer. I bought this TV last December and at first it looked great with all the colors and design. 2 months later, the TV screen started going all back every now and then by itself, I thought that could have been just random. But then things got worse and the TV screen would go black, green, red and yellow and sometimes you'd see some horizontal lines. So I called Westinghouse customer service to activate my warranty for either repair or exchange. Now I must tell you that the WORST customer service I have ever experienced. They did everything to stall the process with very bad communication and nonsense requests. At the end, I even had to pay an additional $50 to recycle the TV before my warranty request was granted. Then, ay they said they didn't have a replacement in stock and they would refund the original price minus the taxes in 4 weeks or so. I will never be buying a Westinghouse TV again, I should have known better and listen to other negative reviews here. But I learned my lesson the hard way. Please do yourself a favor and don't buy this TV. You will just eventually regret it, especially if this happens to you after their one year warranty has expired. THIS IS A TIME BOMB that will go off soon or later.

    Great bargain and... No HDR

    This would be my first 4K TV purchase, but it will certainly (unfortunate for me) not be my last. I was not yet educated on the idea of HDR (High Dynamic Range) which is now the industry standard for 4K TVs. This model DOES NOT feature HDR. It was not until I plugged my PS4 Pro into it that I would learn one of the key features in upgrading my home entertainment would not be available for me to enjoy simply because this is an older model. That being said, my 3 stars rating does not reflect the absence of said feature, due mainly in part that at the time of purchase I didn't even know HDR was a thing. The first thing I noticed was that the factory presets are all off: the default picture is grainy and dark. Once you get into the settings, increase the picture brightness, decrease the contrast, and boost the color - then the picture "pops" in that ultra high def way. I upgraded from 1080p to 2160p, and it is a noticeable difference. The remote seems to have a rather annoying input lag and horrendous range. I have to be pointing directly at the unit from no less than five feet away. The other issue this TV appears to have is the device handshake is slow, and usually requires turning the TV off, then on again in order to display what you are connected to (like a PS4, or computer display) without seeing "No Signal." I have been used to my console turning my TVs on and off when they are turned on, and vice versa. Although there is a setting on the TV for that, there appears to be 0 compatibility with whatever device I am connecting to. The other issue is the sound quality from the TV speakers. Unless you have output to home theater speakers, you will be very disappointed. Overall, great picture for the price, but lacking in almost every category. I know if I spent maybe $200 more, I would get something more to my expectations. I would only recommend this to a friend if I knew they needed a bargain without being reasonably impressed.

    A good budget 4K

    Posted
    Martez

    I bought this during the Black Friday preview sale for $249. Didn't see many reviews for it so it was a bit of a gamble but I gambled on a Westinghouse 1080p back in 2007 so I figured I would try my luck again and worst case scenario I was out $250. Westinghouse came through again though, this TV performs very decently. Picture quality is nice and vibrant and 4K content is eyepopping. Gaming also runs nicely too, I haven't experienced noticeable input lag that seems to plague other 4K sets. My score is mostly based on factoring in the price; it's probably a 3 star TV overall but the price pushes it up since it's a bit of a bargain. There are not a huge wealth of menu/video options, you are limited to the Smart apps that come with the TV; they are garbage, slow, and probably out of date but they do give you access to 4K content if you don't have another device to do it. It will also play 4K video files and music/photos via USB. The menu/remote is a bit finicky but I just got used to it. Sometimes the sound does not come back after unmuting the TV and it has to be turned off and back on. The TV also does not have HDR which is the feature that many will say is the real game-changer in 4K (it still looks beautiful though). The TV stand legs have a wide stance so that is something to consider as well; we had to come up with a whole new setup to accommodate it. As with any big tech purchase, I urge you to look closely at the specifications and ports/features of the TV to make sure it has everything you need. Is 240hz important to you? HDR? High quality speakers? Keep looking. This won't be a TV for everybody, but it does get the basic job done. Considering the price of other 4K sets and the problems in important things like picture quality or input lag for gaming that many other budget sets have, I'd recommend this set as long as you aren't expecting perfection in the entire package. It will competently play 4k and 1080p content as well as games, and that's honestly all I was hoping for at this price. For this house, it's tiding us over until we get a proper HDR set in the future when prices drop and will make a trusty secondary TV.

    Great Value & Picture

    I got this TV for the Black Friday price of $299.99, with home delivery included. It was easy to assemble and setup. The factory setting has to be adjusted for picture (brightness/contrast/color etc.) to your liking. The one thing I would have liked to know prior to buying was the distance between the 'legs' - it is ~42 inches, so a stand of at least 45 inch width is desirable. (I had to make arrangements for a TV stand, as my current one was not wide enough). The WiFi was very easy to setup and works very well - my router is near the TV so that may help. The TV comes with six installed apps (Netflix, Vudu, Pandora, YouTube, Toon Goggles & AccuWeather) again something I would have liked to know before hand, but could not find online. New apps cannot be installed, so make sure you can live with the apps above. I have tried out the Roku stick and Chromecast on the TV - both work as advertised. The third HDMI input comes in handy for this. The audio is surprisingly rich - I have a 42 inch Westinghouse which has horrible tinny audio, and I was prepared for that - but for this I can make do without a soundbar. (set Surround to On to get better audio).
