We recently informed you about upcoming televisions made by Emerson and Sharp that are likely to be big sellers during the 2011 holiday sales, but we have a new entry now which may tempt you into a purchase. The infamous Westinghouse television deals are back, and we information on the 46-inch VR-4625 LCD model to tell you about.
If you have bought a Westinghouse TV model during last year’s Black Friday holiday sales, you’ll know that these sets tend to go for half the original price and are always one of the quickest doorbuster products to sell out at selected retailers. You can bet that there will once again be a chance to purchase a Westinghouse model for a good price this year, and one model which you may want to look out for is the VR-4625.
Main specs of this LCD HDTV include full 1080p HD, thanks to a 1920 x 1080 picture resolution. This model weighs 70.5 pounds, has a 60Hz refresh rate, a brightness of 400 cd/m² and a digital TV tuner. You’ll be pleased to hear that there are three HDMI slots on this particular model, as well as a VGA port in case you want to hook up your old PC if it doesn’t have a HDMI port.
A few things to take into consideration before buying:1) It isn’t an LED model, meaning that you are not going to get the best picture quality for your model. 2) The overall reliability of Westinghouse TV models have been called into question on various support boards online, so it may be better you spending just a little bit more for that extra guarantee.
However, if you just want to pick one up as a secondary TV for another room, then go ahead. Good luck trying to get one though, because as we said these models are one of the hottest items you can buy each year. Since the VR-4625 looks to be a brand new model for 2011, there doesn’t appear to be any reviews as of yet unfortunately. It may be a good idea to take a look at a professional review for a different Westinghouse model though, like CNET’s review for the 40-inch VK-40F580D for example.
If you have owned a Westinghouse model in the past or still own one, let us know your thoughts on the overall performance. Is it worth getting excited about or not?
