In preparation for the original DTV switch in February, I bought a small, economical LCD HDTV, manufactured by Westinghouse.
If you Google “Westinghouse LCD TV problems,” you’ll get 125,000 (or more) results. I didn’t do that until our Westinghouse SK-19H210S started losing the ability to remember the digital channels that it found, starting earlier this week. Then, it totally lost the ability to find ANY digital channels. And then, yesterday, the digital tuner just up and died.
In other words, our HDTV suddenly became a very fancy analog TV and LCD monitor.
We started calling it “Westingcrap.”
After careful researching online, and with the advice of a Best Buy dude, I got us a Samsung today — with an extended warranty.
So far, so good…
