my first experience with Westinghouse was over 6 years ago when their 32" LCD gained such high accolades as a great tv and a great computer monitor. i have used that tv every day since i bought it without a single problem. so with this reputation i decided to buy the VR-6025Z. using an employee discount i got the tv for $829. it has its pros and cons as i have discovered. when hooked to an hd signal it has a great picture, for me any way. works great for both my computer and Xbox, and soon a ps3. my computer is connected through an hdmi cable and i experience no lag what so ever. tons of input options as well, but only 3 hdmi inputs. 4 really would have been optimum for me, but it wasn't a deal breaker.
the main issue i have is the need to input a code in order to scan for terrestrial digital signals, and clear QAM. Westinghouse gives numerous options to receive the code, email, phone, text or internet. the telephone and the net are the only two reliable ways i found to get it. they never responded to my text nor my email. here is where this scheme breaks down. i entered the code provided but it would not unlock ATSC or the QAM channel scanner. after numerous calls with Westinghouse, they finally told me that QAM scanning was turned off at the factory and there is no code to unlock it. they still contend that the code provided to me would unlock it to scan terrestrial signals, but it doesn't. so is this a deal breaker? for me it just might be. if i had an hd cable box i wouldn't care, but i still have a little time to decide before i am unable to return it. if i could find modified firmware that removes the code i would definitely keep it. it is too bad that this is not mentioned any where on their website or the materials that came with the tv.
