Overview

Our take on the Westinghouse LVM-37w3

With full 1920 by 1080-pixel resolution, plus the ability to accept 1080p signals, Westinghouse's latest 37" LCD is more "HDTV-ready" than nearly any other flat-panel set you can buy. The 1080p design of the LVM-37w3 allows it to show every detail of a 1080i HDTV broadcast without reducing picture clarity. And 1080p-compatible inputs put you in the driver's seat for the new high-definition HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc™ players.

And 1080p-compatible inputs put you in the driver's seat for the new high-definition HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc™ players.

This display is a monitor only — there is no built-in tuner of any type. For standard broadcasts, one easy solution is to make use of the TV tuner built into your VCR. To receive high-definition signals, connect a separate HDTV tuner. The set's back-panel "jack pack" includes composite, S-video, and HD-compatible component video inputs. You also get one HDMI and two DVI digital video inputs for use with compatible HD tuners and DVRs, as well as "upconverting" DVD players. Even the PC input can accept signals up to 1080p.

A powerful built-in "scaler" converts all incoming video signals to match the LCD panel's 1080p native resolution. Sound quality is quite good also, thanks to a built-in 3-speaker system. Whether you're enjoying a DVD movie or studying a computer spreadsheet, the LVM-37w3 displays everything with startling clarity and detail.
