Westinghouse VR-5525Z Review: 55” inch LCD HDTV

Up for Review: Westinghouse VR-5525Z LCD TV. The model is one of the 55-inch LCD TV models launched by Westinghouse that does not support the 3D technology. It also does not offer users with any wired or wireless networking options to access internet on their TV screen. You can consider buying this TV set to enjoy a wide variety of non-3D movies and television programs at 1080p HD resolution and on a 55-inch screen. The manufacturer has further included a set of connectivity options to access your offline collection of digital content on the large TV screen.

With an increasing number of movies, television programs and video games being developed in HD resolution, most of the modern people prefer to replace their existing TV sets with the models offering an original 1080p resolution. You may like to place 3D HD TV inside your main living room, but the VR-5525Z will match the basic requirements of a second or back up set for your family. The growing number of television channels also makes it essential for a modern family to possess more than one television set.


The lower price-tag and ultra slim design of the model also allows users to place the TV set in various parts of their house. As the angular viewing feature will be effective in allowing users to see the scenes in an exact manner without occupying the seats placed directly in front of the TV screen, you can consider placing the TV set in various parts of the house other than the main living room. After buying a 3D HDTV for your main living room, you can consider the affordable 55-inch TV set for your bedroom, dormitory or kitchen.

Westinghouse VR-5525Z Features and Specifications Review:

1080p HD Resolution
120 Hz Refresh Rate
Ultra Slim and Light Design
170° Horizontal and 176° Vertical Viewing Angles
4 HDMI and 1 PC Input Options
Infrared Remote Control

The resolution, refresh rate and overall video quality offered by the model will appeal to your family members belonging to different age-groups. However, the model will not be instantly popular among the kids as it does not support their favorite 3D enabled content. But they will gradually like the model when they will be able to access their favorite sports and action channels, and video games on the 55-inch LCD screen. The 120 Hz refresh rate offered by the model may not be the maximum; still the rate is effective in removing the motion blur while watching the faster moving scenes involving sports and action.

Westinghouse has also included a set of connectivity ports and terminals to allow users to access their offline digital movies, music and photos stored on compatible devices and discs. But the lack of any word or wireless networking option to access internet option along with the direct options to access the content stored on the USB devices and SD memory cards will have an impact on the scope of the viewers to access a wide range of content. You can use the HDMI ports only to access the digital content stored on various versions of digital discs and compatible devices like camcorder and video game consoles.

HDTVUniverse.com gives Westinghouse VR-5525Z 3/5 stars!
