Westinghouse CW40T8GW LCD HDTV Review

While you might be attracted to its cheap price tag, watch out. This TV is a poor performer.

$359.00 MSRP 40 in.


The Westinghouse CW40T8GW is an entry-level LCD HDTV. It is very inexpensive, retailing between $300 and $350 depending on where you're shopping. This is one of those packages that gives consumers just the basics in TV tech for a low price. After testing it, we feel it's just barely worth its modest asking price, and it's probably a better idea to avoid it unless you can find it for cheaper than $300.
