Westinghouse 55-inch 4K TV review: Design
Out of the box, this Westinghouse 55-inch 4K TV takes about 5 min to set up and another 5 minutes to connect to the internet and complete the initial process. Once up and running it does look very similar to other thin tubes in the market with V-shaped stands and slim black front bezels.
The Westinghouse branding can be seen on the chin area right in the middle (bottom). The look is very minimalistic, which is good as that will keep your eyes only on the moving pictures and not anything else. The screen measured 55-inches diagonally and a Bluetooth-driven remote is also supplied to manage it. The Westinghouse 55-inch 4K TV is 12.5cm thick at the top and measures 29CM at the bottom part. A wall mount is also supplied within the box.
The speakers are bottom firing and are well hidden in the body. The rear has all the ports. The right has the power port while the left features two USB, three HDMI, Ethernet, Antenna and an AV port for connecting component connector to it, for older devices.
The supplied remote control is sleek and runs with 2 triple-A batteries. These are also supplied within the box. Quick keys are also present on the remote to take you directly to Netflix, YouTube, Google Play and Prime video. Users can also use the remote for voice functionalities and use Google Assistant features that come in-built the Westinghouse 55-inch 4K TV.
Westinghouse 55-inch 4K TV: Performance
We had a very pleasant experience with the Westinghouse 55-inch 4K TV. Let’s quickly talk about the technical specifications first. This smart TV has a MediaTek Quad Core CPU, Dolby audio, and HDR 10 support that brightens the 4K flat screen. The refresh rate is set at 60Hz so fast pace action scenes look great, however, we would have preferred a higher refresh rate for console gaming.
The Westinghouse 55-inch 4K TV is spectacular when it comes to audio and video. We played a lot of things on the TV including Netflix shows, movies on Amazon Prime and news on YouTube. It delivered on all counts. The colours are very vivid, and the blacks are deep. The TV also supports viewing angles up to 178 degrees, so no matter where you are sitting in the room, you can watch the screen and images on it properly.
After the great video, it is the turn of great sound. The total output of the TV speakers is 40W RMS, which is superb. You do not need a sound bar or additional speakers with it. Thanks to tuning by Dolby they also provide a virtual surround sound and these do not crack even at volumes above 90 percent.
Android 10 for TVs is what you get on this smart telly by Westinghouse and the graphics here are powered by ARM Cortex A53 GPU. This is coupled with 2GB RAM that enables smooth and effortless browsing. All the apps open swiftly even if you have 4-5 of them open in the background. There is no slowing down even after watching the TV for more than 8 hours. The OS is very similar to any other smart TV, basically, stock Android OS for TVs, which is a good thing. All the necessary apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Zee 5, Sony Liv, Disney+ and others come pre-loaded on it.
All in all, we had a wonderful time watching shows and movies on the Westinghouse 55-inch 4K TV. It is a mammoth of a TV selling for a very competitive price. Rs 29,999 is what the company is asking for and we think that is a steal. Yes, you can get some TVs for a few thousand lesser, but those 55-inch 4K televisions will not give you the impressive sound and great colours this TV will provide. If you are in the market to pick up a 55-inch smart TV for your bedroom or living area, you can go for a Westinghouse 55-inch 4K TV without breaking the bank.
