Research shows this is currently $250 LOWER than previously reported prices. The next cheapest available is from Tiger.com[tigerdirect.com].
Shipping looks like approximately $17.10, making this an great deal for anyone who doesn't live close to a Micro Center. If you have a Micro Center near you the total, with tax and shipping, is approximately $530. This is still the cheapest 50" 120Hz LED currently on the market from any manufacturer.
Shipping has been turned off, but price dropped by $50. Now $250 cheaper than Tiger.com
Wife and I are looking into moving into a bigger place and are going to need another TV. I bought a 47" Westinghouse 1080p 60Hz LCD in 2008 when I was living on my own and its what we use now, and it's still going strong. It has a couple of little quirks here and there, but the picture is great and I've not had any crazy big issues with it.
I would prefer a Samsung TV, but for the price, I am perfectly happy with the quality that Westinghouse pushes out to their products. Money is kinda tight while we make the transition.
Bought an open box LED Westinghouse (LD-4695) from Best Buy last month for the bedroom; and so far we're happy with it.
As a heads up though, one weird thing, is that you need to contact Westinghouse, to get a code to be able scan for QAM or over-the-air. The automated system actually worked when I called them having my serial number ready. So it wasn't too big of an issue.
Just wish I could find out how to get to their service menu so I can calibrate it.
If the name isn't Sony, LG, or Samsung, they are most likely sourced in China and assembled in Mexico. This goes for TCL, Vizio, Coby, Haier, etc..
As much anecdotal evidence as people would like to offer, there is very little difference between these brands. Even the low end Sony, Samsung, and LG are Chinese panels. They are bought at factories like Rizen, Konka, CMO, etc.. by the lowest bidder and put into production.
Things like interface, customer service, and design on these low end sets are usually the only quantifiable difference.
