Westinghouse has announced that they are now shipping their new sets, which feature a 120Hz refresh rate, at an unheard of $750.
Keeping in mind that Westinghouse isn’t a brand that leaps to mind in a conversation about quality and HDTVs, the release of their new TX-42F970Z is still fairly significant. When any technology gets filtered down to the economy brands, it can be seen as a fairly good indicator that not only do people want it, but it’s here to stay.
Ray Roque, the VP of Marketing at Westinghouse speaks highly of the new set. “LCD has clearly become the HDTV technology of choice for the majority of consumers in the U.S.” he says. “ Westinghouse is working to bring high-end, advanced HDTVs to all consumers at the most affordable price points possible.”
The TX-42F970Z also features a 4ms response time, a 4,000:1 contrast ratio, and four HDMI inputs.
