Taxes in your state, or the walmarts in your state? I am in Colorado and I had to pay taxes.

It's not bad for an entry level set. Not as crisp looking as the samsung. I was looking at this set as well, but ended up with a 46" Samsung from Fry's for $349 about a month ago (one day deal).
It's so little!

I am pretty sure you'll have to pay tax on this no matter what. I think the online tax exemption only applies if the distributor is not in your state, and Walmarts are everywhere.

While LED back lighting is an improvement over CFL’s, the vast majority of people looking at the screen would not be able to tell the difference.
Advertising company’s like to use flashy new terms like LED to get attention to their products. Real LED technology has been around for 30 years, albeit very expensive, and they are using the term to try to draw people in. True LED, or OLED, does not need back lighting.

Westinghouse isn't really a great brand for TVs, but they're certainly a step above Polaroid. For a good budget TV I'd recommend Dynex, as they share parts from LG.

I did however pick up a 32" LED 720p TV for my boys for Christmas at Best Buy for $200. Tack on $20 for a 4 year Black Tie warranty and I'm good to go. That way, even if reliability is garbage, atleast I can get a replacement.

Also: General consensus on these TVs is the sound is terrible unless you run through a seperate sound system. Just a heads up.

Westinghouse is worst company ever, their products are cheap and won't last long, customer service is useless, just spend $100 more for some better brand...

I actually saw this TV at Best Buy the other day and thought it looked nice. I turned the volume up to watch a Skyrim clip that was playing, and the audio is indeed godawful. The picture looked pretty good, though.
