VR-5585DFZ Westinghouse LCD TV

Westinghouse Digital has announced it will ship a new 55" LCD HDTV at just $979. At that price, it makes owning a spectacular big-screen flat panel TV an affordable reality for consumers everywhere. The VR-5585DFZ seems to have arrived just in time for the holiday season. The new VR-5585DFZ Westinghouse LCD HDTV is a 55" HDTV that features full 1080p high-definition resolution and 120Hz with MEMC (motion estimation/motion compression) to ensure smooth images by reducing judder and blur.

The VR-5585DFZ features ample connectivity for both new and legacy A/V components, including 3 HDMI inputs, two component video inputs and analog A/V connections.  It also features a host of picture enhancements sure to please even finicky viewers, including 3D noise reduction, inverse 3:2 pull down for flicker-free movies, three-way selectable color temperature and super quick response times for fast-moving sports. Parental control, sleep timer and PC inputs let users make the most of this exceptionally versatile, value-driven HDTV.

"A superb high-definition HDTV in a large size shouldn't be beyond anyone's reach, and with Westinghouse it doesn't have to be.  Our new VR-5585DFZ 55" HDTV will bring a new level of entertainment excitement to more homes than ever, with the kind of performance and styling that consumers have come to expect from much costlier brands."

- Rey Roque, Vice President of Marketing

I hate it that manufacturers can't get their proverbial sh?t together and standardize on specs.

What's the contrast ratio both dynamic and static? What is the respsone time in ms? If they are not publishing these specs on a display, it makes me wonder what they are hiding. At least you get these last two specs with every Vizio LCD/LED product.
