Our take on the Westinghouse LTV-32w4 HDC by Crutchfield's Steve Kindig
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.
