DEAD/OOS


Was walking though Target yesterday and noticed the Westinghouse 50" LED 1080p 60Hz TV [target.com] was on limited clearance for $299.99 (reg $599.99 previous sales for $499.99)

Talked to the guy at the tech department and while there were none out front he said there were a few in the back and the deal was live (Sawmill Rd/Dublin OH location)

Might be worth checking out to see if other stores had the same offer

Took mine back today. Just couldn't deal with the reds being pinkish most of the time.

For anyone wondering they do refund the warranty also. I had bought the Target 3yr warranty and received a full refund.

Wish I wouldn't of had any issues but after 2 sets with the same issue I just couldn't pay for something that had those issues.

Took mine back too. The color picture was disappointing even compared to my 4 year-old budget Sharp. My eyes were actually getting adjusted to the terrible color processing after watching the TV every day.

Trying to figure out if I want to keep this. Picture doesn't even compare to Samsung 720 plasma. Why is picture so terrible?

Odd, maybe I have just had horrible HDTV's before this or maybe I just got a really good Westinghouse? I have none of the pink issues that others are experiencing, the picture is crystal clear and it works great for gaming with my PS3. Oh and they price matched with the receipt someone else posted in here for $299 so I was able to get my $50 back (the local store had it for $349) and then was able to add the warranty at the discounted $30 price. :shrugs: I am actually pleased with my purchase overall and give kudos to the OP for finding it for me, got the last one in stock in Vegas.

I am not sure if I got the bad TV but the favorite option freezes the TV up. I added few channels to my favorite and the moment I select the next channel from my list the TV goes freezes, its won't power off, nothing, no response at all. The only option is disconnect the power cord and reconnect, very annoying.

Also the surround option makes my speaker sound horrible, seriously, it sounds like the speakers are busted. Without surround option its OK. Any other having the same problem ?

I just don't know if its only my TV or its a known issue.

The favorite channel option also freezes my TV so I stopped using it. Also, did you notice that the "recall" button doesn't work for digital channels? It works for analog channels. Other than these problems, I haven't had other issues and I still think the TV is great so far.

I was able to grab one of these at the $299 price, and it doesn't appear to have the pink coloring issue. I'm still going to run the calibration dvd through to help get it tuned up, but I'm happy overall with it.

I was able to sell my older Olevia for $150 on CL in just a few hours, so my net cost on this thing dropped even lower. I'm happy so far (and bought the extended warranty too just in case.

Well, I see the 50-inch Westinghouse has just gone up from $449 to $599 online. I'm wondering if this slick deal is now seriously dead......OR.......if it's getting ready to drop back down to $399, $349, or even $299 again to get rid of remaining stock. Seriously, the price of this TV has been all over the map for the last several weeks!

Now dropped to $499 online. As soon as I have a chance, I'll check the price at one of the local Target stores . . . probably sometime tomorrow.

Checked my local store today, and the TV is the same price as online ($499). Supposedly "On Sale" for $100 off the retail price of $599.
