The 32" Westinghouse LTV-32w4 HDC packs an amazing amount of entertainment into its slender cabinet. This wall-mountable flat-panel HDTV features a convenient built-in DVD player. Simply make your power and antenna connections and you have a high-resolution system fit for a living room, bedroom, office, or den. The easy-access front-loading disc slot allows placement on a wall or in tight spaces like an armoire.

Westinghouse's TV/DVD combos feature a unique electronic "auto wake" disc slot that detects when a disc (DVD or CD) is inserted and automatically powers the TV on and begins playing the disc. If you're already watching TV and you put a DVD in the slot, the "auto select" feature switches the source to DVD and begins playback. Westinghouse's Pixel Direct™ technology ensures an ultra-clean picture by delivering the DVD signal from the player to the screen via the shortest possible direct digital path.

The LTV-32w4 HDC has built-in standard and digital TV tuners for over-the-air broadcasts, plus the latest audio/video connections for your other gear, including an HDMI input. The glare-resistant high-resolution screen looks great displaying high-definition programs and DVD movies. Both TV and DVD controls are at the tips of your fingers thanks to the dual-purpose remote control. There's even a PC input so you can use this set as a jumbo-sized computer monitor.

    Great TV and DVD combo

    Love this TV DVD Combo from Baltimore, MD on 12/1/2013

    I purchased this TV off a friend in 2005 to help them out. Since then i have enjoyed its versitility. I have attempted to look for a TV DVD combo this size or larger and have never found one. It is 2013 and my only issues with it, is sometimes the picture (Blacks) get a bit redish, but goes away eventually, and only with TV, not when watching a DVD or in HDMI mode. I LOVE THIS TV, PLEASE MAKE MORE LIKE IT.

    Pros: Combo, TV DVD. I love the idea of it, and wich more companies did this. Sound is good for me. I also like the fact that I can use HDMI and VGA to plug my laptop to it. Also very well built and sturdy.

    Cons: Picture gets redish, and ones or twice a year I have to unplug it completely from the wall to reset it and get it working right.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I bought this set to use in a master bedroom. I wanted to eliminate a lot of extra clutter, so the integral dvd player was a big bonus that allowed for a clean install. The helpful Crutchfield sales dude helped me pick out a wall mount and then i received my tv in just 1 day.<BR><BR>The set works well, the remote has some quirkie aspects; the dvd buttons are way down on the bottom, which is a little awkward. and there is no screen saver option when playing cd's like most players have, but other than those little quibbles, I would highly recommend this set.

    Pros:

    Cons:

    Great TV, even better price!

    Jason from Brewerton NY on 3/10/2007

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    We bought this TV when we remodeled our master bedroom. What a great unit! Regular cable looks great on it, and HD programming is unbeleiveable. The built in DVD is great, especially with the slot and buttons on the bottom of the unit, great thinking for mounting up high on the wall. We are going to get the 42&quot; Westinghouse for the family room.<BR><BR>The only issue is that the caption comes on automatically when playing a DVD. Not a horrable thing, but an inconveinence.

    Not happy

    Bostonbrian from Boston, MA on 3/1/2007

    I bought this TV as a replacement for my Sony CRT with price as a primary consideration. I got what I paid for. I had it less than a week when I had to contact Westinghouse customer service due to a corrupted display. They had me do a soft reset. I had to do many more such resets to recover the display over the next 6 months. After 6 months, the display developed a line across the middle. The TV has now been with Westinghouse for a month to be repaired under warranty. I'm not impressed and would not recommend this TV.

    Excellent Buy

    Jim from Virginia Beach, VA on 1/22/2007

    I purchaced this TV online from Crutchfield and it arrived in two days. I hooked it up with the assistance of a technician without any difficulty. The picture is terrific, very clear and concise. The HD channels are even better. It has a built-in DVD player, which is also a nice feature. This also gives you a great picture. I shopped around a lot and this is an excellent buy for the money. This was my first purchase from Crutchfield and I will definitely deal with them again.

    Great price

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I'm very impressed with this item. The price was right and the features are great. The black-and-white contrast is better than I have seen on other LCDs. I have no dead pixels and a DVD player works great. The remote is will laid out well and it is easy to use. The online menu system is slow to react a very functional. The only drawbacks that I can see would first be the headphone jack required if you're going connect to HD 15 connection for your computer. I connected an Xbox 360 via the HD 15 and I had get an adapter to go from phono to headphone jack. The instructions provided with the TV are limited I found when programming the channels if your cable provider has HD it takes about 15 to 20 minutes. I'm very satisfied with the purchase.

    Good TV/DVD Combo

    bdellefson from Seattle WA on 10/17/2006

    I bought this TV, a wall mount that tilts and installed it myself. Pretty easy to do! The TV weighs no more than 30 pounds and was very easy to mount. Overall, the picture I get from cable is nice and the picture from the DVD is really good. Plenty of plugs in the back for adding other input devices. On the negative side, the DVD is pretty loud when loading. I've never heard a DVD "work" before so it took me off guard. The only other complaint I have is that the TV seems to turn on the subtitles to a DVD every time I put a new one in. So I have to go in and manually turn it off. Not too big of a hassle, but it takes a minute to do. Maybe there is an option i can enable to fix this, dont know yet. This TV, overall, has been very nice and convenient. The picture is nice and it also sounds good. A good buy for the money!!!
