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

Let's hope so. Even though a lot of Slick Dealers have reported problems with color balance on this TV, if it returns to $299, I'm gonna take a chance on one . . .

I coulda picked up on for $349 a couple of weeks ago. I held out for $299, and now I may have missed out on the deal altogether.

Decided mine is going back, the picture is quite bad compared to my LG. Hope they accept returns over 30 days old.

I really havent had any issues with mine. i agree it isnt the greatest picture in the world, but even at 399, it is still a good deal for a thin led. here are some pics i just took on my phone. the stuff that i could complain about most people wouldnt even notice.

Looks like you have the "pinkish" issue at times too. I can see the pink where red should be in the second picture. Glad you like it though. I had to take mine back cause I couldn't deal with that issue.

I had to get something that could be wall mounted. I was changing from a 55" projection. At the same time, I bought a custom couch, a new center channel speaker, and had to repair one of my surrounds, so I had to cut the budget on the TV. I figured I can get a better model at the end of the year, or just leave this one when I sell this house in a couple of years.

So I contacted Westinghouse about the issues we've been seeing hoping they had a firmware update that would give a better range of control over the picture quality. I ended up sending some pictures of the reds and blues "popping" more than others and whatnot and they just sent me a prepaid FedEx label for me to send in my TV so they can replace it. No clue if it will be the same model or something better but will keep everyone posted on the results. Just an FYI if you aren't totally happy and can't return it - this may be an option!

edit: In case anyone is still following this thread I sent my TV back (had to pickup a shipping box from Home Depot since I had just thrown mine out) and they sent me a refurbished set of the same model. I had requested a smaller one with backlight dimming but they called and said they didn't have anything like that available. I ended up selling it on CL for about what I paid for it and got a manufacturer refurb Vizio 42" that meets our needs perfectly.

They told me they will send you the same model. I called in and sent pictures and that's what they were going to do for me so I choose to return it to Target and get a refund since I had already tried 2 sets and both had the same issues with the colors. Was no need for me to try a 3rd. Good luck though.

Seems my blacks are having the most problems. Colors not an issue so much. Wreck it Ralph looked great and 300 looked like crap.

Limited availability at a couple of stores near me, too. But at $500, I'm not interested. At $300, it's probably worth it.

Well, I checked again yesterday at the one store near me that still shows limited availability, and the price is still pegged at $500. I'm beginning to think that this deal is permanently dead. We missed it! I thought it might come back as the stock of these units dwindled, but I guess not...
