Get that LED HDTV you’ve been wanting, says Westinghouse. You can afford it. The LCD-maker is releasing the LD-4255, a 42-inch LED model with 1080p resolution. It offers a sleek high-gloss black frame with red accents. But what you really care about is the cost. You can get it for a street price of $749. That’s pretty good for an LED model.
This set is 1.25-inches thick and it offers a vivid picture thanks to a high contrast ratio and a 120Hz refresh rate. It’s a widescreen model (with a 16:9 ratio, naturally) and it has two HDMI, 1 composite, and 1 component input. It’s also eco-friendly, as it exceeds Energy Star 5.0 ratings (which don’t even go into effect until 2012). The box is make of recycled materials which you can fry up and eat (that last part isn’t true). Look for this set in mid-September.
