CES 2009: Westinghouse's new 120HZ 1080p LCD HDTVs, LCD monitors [day 3]

Westinghouse Digital gets a bit of the short stick at CES, stuck in the shadow of such high-profile HDTV manufacturers such as Panasonic, Sony and Samsung. Still, the company's got some new HDTVs (that, fingers crossed, I'll be able to play with tomorrow), as well as new LCD displays from 19 to 26 inches.
