Orange, Calif. -
Westinghouse Digital kicked off the back-to-school season by shipping several
LCD TV/monitors designed to provide multiple applications for space-constrained
college dormers.

Among the entries
are several LED edge-lit models that were designed for both high picture
quality and energy efficiency, the company pointed out.

New Westinghouse
models include the 24-inch LD-2480 ($250 suggested retail) FullHD 1080p
edge-lit LED LCD TV with a PC input to use the display as both a TV and PC

The set, which is
available at Target stores, measures 1 inch thick and weighs 6 pounds with the
stand. Inputs include two HDMI, one component and one VGA. It is Energy Star compliant,
using 10 percent less energy than a 60-watt light bulb.

The Westinghouse
32-inch LD-3260 (available now through Amazon at a $330 suggested retail) also
features a VGA PC input to double completely as a PC monitor, and uses LED edge
lighting to produce 720p native HD resolution. Inputs include two HDMI, one composite
and one VGA/component input.

The 40-inch
LD-4070Z (available now at Costco stores for a $500 suggested retail) LED
edge-lit LCD HDTV produces FullHD 1080p resolution and reduces motion artifacts
using a 120Hz refresh rate. The set uses 20 percent less energy than a 100-watt
light bulb and has earned the Energy Star approval.

The 46-inch
LD-4655 (available now at Best Buy for a $650 suggested retail) was designed
for watching sports and playing video games in a fraternity or sorority houses.
It features FullHD 1080p resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, 6.5ms response time
