Looking for a new HDTV? How about one that sits in at 70" diagonally? Coming right up! Westinghouse Digital has just announced that they'll be unveiling a 70" LED HDTV at CES 2012, alongside a new 46" ultra-slim bezel design and soundbar. Highlights include the introduction of Westinghouse’s largest offering to date, the 70” UW70T9VZ 1080p full HD LED TV, boasting a 120 Hz refresh rate and 8 ms response time. The company will also be debuting the first offering from its upcoming line of ultra-slim bezel LED HDTVs, the 46” UW46T5PZ. It's a 1080p set as well, and as if that wasn't enough, they're getting in the soundbar game for the first time.

The WSB-N20BW Series Soundbar with Wireless Bluetooth will feature powerful sound and a sleek, clean design, offering 2x12 watts, a class D amplifier, and a frequency response of 85Hz – 20Khz, with enhanced bass. There's no word on pricing yet, but they should be available shortly after the new year kicks off.

This is my dream 50 inch way up 70 inch TV. It will be nice to have 70 inches TV in den room and hook up to PC with HDMI cable and great for watch the show and movie.

i've had bad experiences with Westinghouse, i have friends and family that have had bad experiences with westinghouse and I have read bad reviews about westinghouse.

I personally would not buy a product from them.

I agree with acartz Westinghouse is a low end consumer brand. Though the thought of a 70 inch TV is certainly attractive and I am sure much cheaper than a projector and screen setup.

I wonder if they're ever going to come out with IPS technology in TV's. Or have they already? Viewing angles are a big thing when you're buying a TV.

This is an LED though, if only LED's had as good viewing angles as Plasma's!

They are a low end brand, this is NOT the Westinghouse we all grew up with, it's another company making the stuff and slapping the Westinghouse name on it. RCA and Zenith are two other brand that are the same way, these companies play on people's brand recognition, but their quality is nowhere like it was when these brands actually produced their own stuff.
