>> Hi, I'm Matthew Mascoviack, assistant editor at CNET.com. And this is the Westinghouse LVM47W1. This is a 47 inch LCD TV with a 1080P negative resolution. Which means that it can display 1080I and 1080P sources without scaling them to fit the picture. This is a relatively inexpensive LCD for the size. And that reflected in the styling, which you can see is kind of bland. It has a dark gray frame around the picture and the silver on the outside. And you can see at the bottom, actually the speakers are pointing downward instead of firing out. Now while the styling is bad, the remote is kind of actually worse. As you can see, it's pretty looking and the volume buttons aren't really set off aside which makes it very difficult to navigate by feel. But bad styling aside, the features on this TV are actually pretty good. Around back, you'll see that there are three digital inputs, one HDMI and two DVI. And all three of these inputs are 1080P capable. There's also three analog HD inputs, one VGA PC style input and two component video inputs. The PC input is actually capable of accepting a 1080P source, so that's really great for Xbox 360 owners with the HD DVD drive which only outputs 1080P over VGA. Now, on to performance. This performed a little bit better than we expected. It's about above average black levels for an LCD. And the color decoding was decent. But where it really shined in performance was as a computer monitor. All the text and images that we looked at were especially crisp and we would highly recommend it for that purpose. As a TV, its relatively inexpensive set and it's not the best performer. But it does have a lot of HD inputs and it's a pretty big screen for the price. I'm Matthew Maschoviak and this is the Westinghouse LV1046W1. ^M00:01:59 [ Music ]
Panasonic's 54-inch TC-P54G10 offers superb image quality, plenty of features, and great value, making a strong bid for your big-screen buck.
Perfectly acceptable image quality and a well-integrated DVD player make the Westinghouse VK-40F580D a solid choice for people going the combo route.
The Westinghouse Digital Photo Display DPF-0701 has some intriguing features and is fairly simple to use, but we've seen photo frames that offer sharper image quality for the same price.
While the image quality of the Westinghouse LTV-40W1HDC didn't blow us away, its well-integrated DVD player should be a boon for kids.
With picture quality decent enough to satisfy most viewers, the affordable, fully featured Vizio GV42L HDTV is one of the best values among big-screen LCDs.
The 58-inch Panasonic TH-58PZ700U plasma HDTV offers superb image quality, although it costs more than just about any rear-projection big-screen TV.
The HP LC4776N HDTV has 1080p resolution and a good selection of inputs, but its middling picture quality and features make it difficult to recommend.
For Alltel customers on a budget, the HTC Wildfire is a very affordable and decently featured Android phone, but it comes at the cost of screen quality and processor speed.
Decent image quality and a well-rounded snapshot feature set make the high-performance ultracompact Canon PowerShot SD450 one of the better choices in the current Digital Elph lineup.
The Westinghouse W4207 might not include a tuner, but for cable and satellite users who want high-def for less, it's a tremendous bargain.
