The consensus is usually positive on ghosting. Few people ever complain. Me, I see none at all in FEAR, Oblivion, CS:S, HL2, and UT2004. However, be aware that perception of ghosting is quite subjective, even with the very same monitor. I've heard people say they see "horrible ghosting." There can be minor factory differences, but those can't account for "horrible ghosting," so it must be individual perception. In other words, try.So can someone tell me out of all the responses in this thread what is the over all opinion on ghosting on the 37" Westi playing FPS pc games? Even a smidgen drives me mad. My 226bw handles games extremely well.
Depends---HD tuner or otherwise? For standard-def TV, any cheap VCR or DVD recorder will do just fine. For HD, I can't really help, as we don't get HD at all in my area so I never even tried.Also this monitor does not have a tv tuner if I read the specs right. Is there a good resonably priced tuner recommendation in this thread?
Just got my Westinghouse back from RMA.
Gotta say their whole customer support operation could use some work.
First time I call up they take my information and start a case number, but they put my telephone number in wrong which was apparently a big deal because that's primarily what they use to look up your information.
I sent out the TV via RMA which costs me $145 :|, it shipped 2/21 and got there 2/27.
I called them 3/8 or 3/9 (I have to check my records) and ask them when the TV is going to be shipped back, they tell me they'll call me back, no call back. I call them the next day and they tell me it will be shipping out around 3/15-3/16.
I called them yesterday 3/20 (3 times...) to find out if it has been shipped and they say it has and they give me a tracking number. I check the tracking number and I find out it was delivered to UPS on 3/13 and been stuck at UPS for 6 DAYS!!! They screwed up the address, so UPS couldn't deliver. That's an honest mistake, but since it's a 5 day ship from Cali to NJ that means when I called them on 3/8 it had already been shipped.
They need to get their shit together. All in all if they gave me the correct information the turnaround on the RMA was actually really fast, also they couldn't fix the TV so they sent me a brand new one, remote, cables, manuals, etc... So I can't complain too much.
I love this monitor! I'm still just as impressed by it as I was when I got it. I got my xbox360 a couple weeks ago while still at my mother's house, and had it hooked up to her 47" Samsung 720p TV. It's an older rear projection TV. I thought everything looked great on it, a little bit blurry, but pretty good nonetheless. Well when I got the 360 back home and started playing on the Westy, I could not believe the difference! Everything was so much sharper and clearer, it was like the difference between SD and HD.
Every time I play a PC game on it, I get this feeling of "wow, this is so cool!" It's great. Games feel more immersive, for sure, and it's great for watching video, too. I like that the res is what it is, it keeps me from spending any more money on PC upgrades. One of these days I am going to get Daggerfall set up on the Westy PC, lol.
I really wish I'd bought this thing sooner. I might look into getting my fiance one for his birthday, too, still several months away though.
This is a steal for the $999 that I paid for it. Buy this thing. It is worth it.
I'll close with some pictures (remember that my camera sucks and the lighting represented in the pictures is not true to life.. it looks much more vivid):
Can you post the wall papers links for those two backgrounds? Please,and thank you
That is the exact reason I got the 4 year Best Buy warranty with my Westinghouse 47. They have the worst customer service when it comes to RMA.
