Was looking to trade up from my old big clunker of a tube TV to a new streamlined flat screen, and after all the investigating (there were hours of it) I decided on this Westinghouse 40'. It was the cheapest in it's category, and out of all the stores and web sites I tried. The only other place who had it for $299.00 was Best Buy, but on Amazon I got to save myself the $20.00 in tax ( I live in Taxachussetts). I have had it for over a month now with no issues so far.
What's not to like?
The Vizio is very easy to set up. It is, quite literally, plug and play. And within a very few minutes of filling in on-screen answers, the wi-fi was working and Netflix was playing. The remote is small, as are the keys (for my somewhat large fingers). But everything is clearly labeled, which makes it is easy to use. The learning process for the remote is short. I only had to refer to the 'Quick Start' guide once.
Easy to stream movies & series with Internet Apps
As mentioned in the beginning, it's a good HDTV with bunch of useful features. You'll watch TV, series and movies no problem with this. And if you run out of them temporarily you can get more with Internet Apps. Thus there's always something entertaining when you fire up this TV :)
Easy set up very clear picture in HD
So easy to use and set up, crystal clear picture if you are watching anything HD. This isn't even for sale yet here on Amazon but I bought this at a local dealer yesterday and it is perfect. Apps work great. We have amazon prime and i am watching a movie as I type. We got the 50in and could not be happier.
Good overall image quality
The design of the Sony KDL-46EX645 has seen a little bit of an update compared to Sony's previous line of HDTVs. The new bezel is metallic in color and has a new finish that actually makes it look quite attractive. The stand, on the other hand, is a fairly standard black rectangular design.
Aesthetically beautiful, Well rounded features
Overall, we really like the Sony KDL46EX645. We feel it has a good combination of features for its price. It's a good choice to be the main TV in your home.
Impressive HDTV / Monitor
Overall, this is one very impressive unit. Not fair to compare it to the output & features of my plasma display. This has 2 HDMI (one with audio return) and 1 USB inputs, not a smart TV - but perfect for my purpose. If you want the smart & network connected features, all you have to do is connect a inexpensive networked blu ray player and you are there. My Panasonic plasma has never seen a network cable, the blu ray player provides all the Viera features.
Great TV/ Great Price
This is a very nice TV at a nice pricepoint at $598. The picture quality and audio quality are both above my expectations. Barely anyone can tell the difference between 60Hz and 120 Hz, and I don't feel that paying the extra is worth any more in picture quality. Vizio is a quality company, based in California. This TV is to replace a Samsung 52 in LCD that stopped working (flickering continuously on-off) in past weeks.
Rugged, waterproof and weatherproof
From where I sit, an outdoor TV must meet two essential criteria: It must stand up to the elements, both natural and not-so-natural, and it must produce bright and beautiful images on even the sunniest days. Sunbrite's 5560HD met both qualifications with ease. Furthermore, the 5560HD looks great without regard for its intended use, even at night when fine details are much easier to see.
Hanging out with this TV was terrific fun, and not just because I got to throw things at it.
Can weather up to 122 degrees F
A $1495 retail can get you a high-definition HDTV with all the bells and whistles you'd want, but leaving it outdoors - no way! The SunBriteTV Model 3260HD All-Weather Outdoor LCD Television may have a small screen size (32-inches) but what it lacks in display width, is made up in usability in the great outdoors. Say goodbye to that couch, already!
Can't beat it for the size and price!
This Hitachi 40" television is great. The picture quality is super. The sound is great also. I'm on a budget and after doing a month research on various televisions until I decided on this one,I'm well pleased. Now will it hold up? I hope to get many years of good service out of this television. The price is the best compared to other televisions of the same size. I would recommend this tv to anyone.
Best big-screen lcd TV value
Is an outstanding value highly accurate color and very good bright-room performance, deep black levels with great shadow detail,Out-of-the box the picture of the Magnavox 50MF412B/F7 is excellent,the quality in picture and sound exceeds any of the more expensive brands.
The main trouble with judging TV sets based on their contrast ratios is that there are no industry standards for these ratios.
Great TV at an excellent price!
All in all I am very happy with this TV. I specifically wanted to get a "non smart TV" for the fact that I already have all of the apps and functionality I need with my XBox, PS3, and Apple TV. I was really happy to find such a high quality TV without all the frills. I was more than happy to pay a couple hundred dollars less for a quality TV set without the "smart" capability. The fact that it has 3d capability was a really nice extra that seemed almost "free" considering the price tag.
