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

Guys for 300$ this tv display is awesome...

I tried running a 1080p hd video via YouTube...the picture looked very vivid and crisp...

trust me you would not be disappointed with the investment....

I realize that this is a budget LED TV and there's no other 50" LED TV you can get for this price, but with that being said it's not even worth the $300 IMHO. I got one for $299 and I brought it back the same day. As others have stated the colors are poor. Even when you manually adjust them there's pretty much two options - washed out or too dark. There were bright spots in the lighting. I noticed a lot of motion blur and I don't think it was the 60hz because I don't notice it on my other 60hz TVs. The build quality is terrible.

I'm not low-end TV hater - I'm very impressed with my $99 Seiki from Sears.

I was finally able to find this for $350 at another Target near me. I tried cable and a blu-ray and don't have a huge problem with colors. Honestly as you said its a budget TV and you get what you pay for. If you want something perfect (or close to it) you are going to pay a lot more.

I got one for $299.99 at Wilson, NC. I agree that is not the best TV, but certainly not the worst for $300. Does anyone know the best color settings for this?

Got mine for $348.
I lowered the contrast and brightness then the sharpness to soften the look a bit.

Thanks! Did the same and the colors look so much better than the factory settings. One of the things I noticed is that after the TV warms up (10-15 minutes), the colors look so much better.

This tv has a coaxial out and my soundbar has a optical in. Which one do I use?

Ignore the TV and run the optical out from your AV source directly to the soundbar.

Thanks for the reply. I have computer that connects to the tv using a vga so I think the converter would be the be eeasiest way for me. My ps3 is also connected to tv using an hdmi cable.

just a little confused on which one...

I was in the same boat. I bought this Coaxial to Optical Digital Audio Converter [amazon.com] and it works great. It's a tiny little thing, but it works. If you want to buy from Mono you want the Coaxial to Optical.

EDIT - Make sure you pick up a coaxial cable [amazon.com] if you don't have one.
