Westinghouse CW40T2RW 40” Class 1080P LCD HDTV


• 1080P High definition resolution
• 178 degree horizontal and vertical angles
• 100,000:1 Dynamic contrast ratio
• 3 HDMI inputs
• PC connectivity
• Energy efficient
• Easy set-up


RATING: 4 out of 5 stars

Welcome to a review of the Westinghouse CW40T2RW 40” Class 1080p LCD HDTV. This model requires very little time to set-up and due to its light weight, is easy to mount on the wall or place on the stand. It has been noted by some people who have purchased this model that the stand is not very sturdy and that it does not swivel, sometimes making it difficult to make adjustments on the menu.

The resolution on the CW40T2RW renders an excellent, crisp picture with vibrant colors and makes everything on the screen come to life. This 40” TV does not boast any high-tech features such as internet connectivity as it is more simplistic in its design. However, what it lacks for in high tech features, it more than makes up for with its delivery of a theater-like viewing experience. For those that want to play video games, connect their computer or simply listen to the TV with headphones, the 3 HDMI inputs provided on the rear of the set are more than enough to fill these needs.

The remote control unit that comes with this model is part number RMT-21. It is a standard model remote and is easy to use.

The sound quality of this model, as with many flat screen TVs, is average. Some customers who have purchased this model have commented that when the sound is on you feel as though you are in a tunnel. To reap the full benefits of this TV and acquire high-end sound quality, it is recommended that a sound bar, speakers or a sound system be attached to one of the HDMI inputs. This small adjustment will make even the most tech savvy sound critic happy with his purchase. For the low price, this TV can’t be beat.

• Low price
• Clear, crisp, high resolution picture quality
• Wide vertical and horizontal angles
• 3 hdmi inputs

• Sound quality
• TV stand is not very sturdy
