Westinghouse 55″ 4K UHD Smart TV Review

First off, this was an excellent purchase. As an avid user of all streaming media, and having my own YouTube Channels, as well as having to direct and edit Music Videos, I needed something at a UHD 4K level that wouldn’t drain my pockets. After days of research and comparing different Makes and Models under the $500.00 price tag, this was an excellent buy.

Considering Westinghouse has been in the industry for over 130 years, and was the first company to introduce the Quick-Start TV’s. (The older tube TV’s had to warm up before being able to show a picture.) I knew this was the choice to make, and after receiving my unit, I was not disappointed.

I’ve seen uncertain viewers with negative ratings only because they’re not doing what they’re supposed to do. You don’t buy a new car without adjusting the rearview mirrors or adjusting the drivers’ seat. Same goes with high-end TV’s. You just don’t “Plug and Play” with factory settings. Every environment has different lighting surroundings, as well as acoustic reflections.

My advice is this, adjust the Levels of your Bass and Treble in the Audio, and adjust the Brightness, and Color in the Picture to your liking. Set the Sharpness 5 to 7 notches less than the full setting. Make sure your Screen Temperature is set to Normal, not Cool or Warm. If I say any more, I’d have to charge you. 😉

Yeah, do some work. You’re investing in a product that you’re supposed to enjoy for years to come, make it worth your while.

Solomon Johnson says:

Hey Felix, just wondering, isn’t it supposed to stream 4K right out the box? Or is that incorrect? When I hit the display button it says in the corner of the screen “1080p”. Any suggestions?

This is not a “smart” tv you can not download apps nor can you get on line. It however is Wi-Fi compatable to the apps it comes with. That is it. I have a smart tv I can download hulu and any apps I want and can get on line like a very large computer.

Ashley Ramsey says:

How do you download more apps I want to add sling to the tv but don’t know how

Anthony J says:

I got the 50″ version of this TV and it does have a great picture and decent sound but gaming is unplayable on it. even in game mode the input lag is pretty noticeable.

Jonathan Stringer says:

I’m having major issues connecting my xbox one s to this tv. I have changed the settings to put out cdmi 2.0 instead of the 1.4 standard. My xbox is still telling me, when on the 4k tv details page, that it is not a 4k tv and nothing will work on it. I’m currently using the cdmi cable that came with the box which for most, seems to work. Is it just the tv?? Thanks for any help.

ThorDaBeast says:

Would this be alright for watching shows on DirecTV or catching the football game? Old tv is about to go and have the option to buy this from a friend

El Duderino says:
