Westinghouse apparently missed the memo that the holiday shopping season is over. Unless it considers Valentine’s Day more of a guy’s holiday (hey, if you’re gonna give diamonds, maybe you’ll get an LCD).
The company has unveiled its new affordable, full high-def resolution LCD TV—the 42-inch TX-42F450S the features, among other things, a tidy $699 MSRP.
We know you might be thinking without the Sharp, Sony or other major label it’s more cubic zirconia but the specs have this 42-inch set looking like a diamond in the rough if you’re in the market for a budget-friendly TV.
- 1080Pure technology and four HDMI connectors
- 1000:1 contrast ratio
- 176-degree viewing angle
- 8-ms response time
- Preset and custom video modes
And of course there’s that sub-$700 pricing spec, too, if you’re into that whole saving money thing. We’d say keep ‘em coming, Westinghouse!
