Will you be ready when the nation switches to digital TV broadcasts in 2009? Now is an excellent time to replace your old analog TV with an HDTV like the Westinghouse LTV-32w6. Its 32" screen delivers bright, high-definition pictures with vibrant colors. This flat-panel LCD works great as the centerpiece of a modest home theater, and it makes a fantastic bedroom TV, too.
Built-in tuners for over-the-air and cable TV signals
The built-in tuner receives both digital and analog over-the-air broadcasts from your local stations. You can keep enjoying non-digital programs the same as always until the nationwide switchover in 2009, but you'll be amazed by the crystal-clear images that digital broadcasts deliver. Cable TV subscribers can use this set's "QAM" tuner to watch unscrambled cable channels even some HD channels, where available.
Inputs for all your components, old and new
The LTV-32w6 includes composite and S-video jacks for your non-HD components like VCRs and camcorders. You'll also find HDMI and component video inputs for connecting the latest satellite HD receivers, video game consoles, and "upconverting" DVD players. This versatile TV also has a standard PC input, so you can work and play on one screen.

Westinghouse LTV-32w6 Reviews
Average Customer Review:
Bang for the buck
I bought this TV after ordering and returning the Toshiba 26HL67 26" and not really being all that pleased with it's size or picture quality. I got his unit based off other reviews I found, and they were right. This is a great tv for the money. You can't beat it. The QAM actually picks up more channels on the Westinghouse than the Toshiba's QAM did.
I have a Panasonic 50" plasma in the living room to compare with and the Westinghouse is much is only a few notches down from it based on picture quality. Way better than the more expensive and smaller Toshiba. The Westinghouse is PERFECT for the bedroom!
The only thing that this TV lacks is some of the features that the more expensive units, i.e. favorites browser, and SmartVolume control. If you can live without these features, get this TV
