    Does anyone have the Westinghouse WD60MB2240 60" set? There's a pretty good deal on it at Best Buy, but I can't find any reviews. It has all the connections I need, and while I know it's not a top-tier set, I was hoping it'd at least be in the same range as, say, the Vizio E60-C3. Any thoughts...
