Westinghouse LCD vs. Westinghouse LCD?!?!?  

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
ok... Im a nubie here so I appolgize in advance. I have searched and cant really find what Im looking for. I had a westinghouse LVM-37w1. Its panel went out and now BB is letting me exchange to a different model(mine no longer available). I need advice to choose between LTV-37w2 or LVM-37w3. One is a HDTV with built in tuner, native 720p. Other is HD monitor, capable of 1080p, no tuner.I use it for TV viewing,DVDs, and XBOX360. Thank you in advance for you help!!

I cant hyperlink yet...1st post.

Get the 37w3 that is 1080p! To me a tuner is pointless because you cable box/satellite box will do the tuning for you. Some people will tell you that 1080p is not needed for a set that small....but you don’t need a Porsch to go 65mph but that does not mean I don’t want one.

LVM-37w3 all the way, the native 1080p resolution future-proofs your monitor for years and makes it instantly HD-DVD/Blue-Ray/PS3 compatible. The lack of a tuner can be solved by hooking-up the cable or satellite receiver. Or you can blow a couple of hundred bucks on an ATSC tuner and a rabbit ear antenna and pick the HD locals. No brainer choice, me thinks!

W3 all the way.

I'm a nubie too and while you guys are answering such questions, let me throw out a similar one. Westinghouse has 4 32" sets to choose from. The models I am looking at and their chief differences are as follows:

LTV-32w1 <$700 HDTV-ready DVI

LTV-32w3 +$70 ATSC & QAM tuners HDMI-HDCP

LTV-32w6 +$170 " "
brightness is 400 vs. 550 for other 2

All are 1366 x 768, 1000:1, 8ms, etc.

Frankly, I can't figure why the w6 is $100 more than the w3 when the specs are pretty much the same. Anyway, is the HDMI + ATSC & QAM tuners (I'm using cable)worth paying extra for? I'm not even sure that Time Warner Cable's STBs have HDMI - there aren't any w/ it shown on their site.

W3 for sure if you have digital cable or ever want to hook up your computer to this display.

Can you explain that - I will have HD digital cable - so I don't need a tuner, right? What about the HDMI? The reason I ask this question is not so much because the w3 is $70 more but the w1 has generally better review ratings.
