I mean, that is pretty cheap for a 40". Might be worth picking up for that price, even if it only lasts you a few years.

Steer clear, girlfriend's family had two of the smaller ones (17") and both crapped out completely within two months. One was replaced under warranty then died again like a month later, the other they didn't even bother.

We have 1 32" 720P LCD and 1 42" 1080P LCD in various rooms in our house. The 32" had a dead pixel right out of the box. The 42" has been ok. The worst thing about them is the back light.....it's just like this white blob behind the screen.
We use them for bedroom TV's so, I can deal with it.

Westinghouse and Dynex are the two brands I'd stay away from. One of them being a LED 32" for $375 or something. I couldn't pass up on the deal.
I bought a couple Westinghouse from Target before and whilst the picture looks good, sound quality and remote was complete crap. I should've read the reviews and most of the Westinghouse models are crap as users say. High chance of breaking down in less than half a year.
Returned them the same day for a Vizio and was pleased more with the new Vizio.
I had one for a year... it would shut off randomly... Then the video card or something went out on it... and the picture looked pastel. Thank good for the best buy warranty... I got a new TV real quick(Sony).
Wouldn't buy a westinghouse or Dynex as mentioned above. Both are shitty IMO. I would take an old school zenith 13 inch before a 40 inch westinghouse
Bought a 26" Westinghouse 720p 2 years ago on BF for that same price and it's been fine. It's on the wall in the bedroom. Sometimes dark/black scenes can be really hard to make out detail, but I'm pretty sure I've got some of the picture settings wacked out.
I keep the sound going to a separate amp and speakers, and use a DirecTV remote, so sound and remote are not an issue for me.
