I feel like I just won the lottery.
My Sharp 42" was dying on me so I've been looking for a deal on a larger LED. My wife was shopping at Target and called me. She told me that they had this model, Westinghouse ew50t5kw, for 349.00. Not bad for a 50". I said get it, we can always return it.
She called me back. Out of stock!
She had the associate call another Target and they had 2, for 299.00! I got up next morning and drove an hour and got it.

Let me tell you, it looks amazing! I know very little about Westinghouse but have read some say that Sony uses a lot of the same parts. Even the remote codes are the same. Longevity? Who cares! For 300.00, it's a deal. I purchased Target's 3 year no questions warranty for 29.00 so I'm really not worried.

Now I just have to calibrate it and watch it!

Does your television also have the inability to adjust Tint or RGB values? I found one of these at my Target but the colors are just awful. I'd like to keep it because it was such a good deal but I don't think I'd be able to live with the fact that I could never get the colors right.

Yes. I noticed this too.
Manual says TINT is only available in NTSC.
How do we do this???

There's a topic on another forum on this particular tv and how it displays it's reds wrong. i really want to keep it but the inability to properly fix the colors is really bugging me. I was going to return it but for $300 I can't seem to make up my mind. Anyways, if you somehow find how to adjust the colors properly, please share.

Hi I have the same tv but lost the base, would anyone like to sell theirs? I moved out of a house into an apartment so I can't have it mounted anymore.

Hello,

I got the same deal as you from Target. But now my TV is not working. I have sound but no picture. Is yours still working?
