Haier HL19SL2 Review: 19” LED LCD HDTV

Up for Review: Haier HL19SL2 LED LCD TV. Haier has introduced this year’s HDTVs with the intention of catering to the tastes of the people who would love to possess an LED HDTV but cannot pay a high price for it. There are people too who think of buying a smaller set for the other rooms in the house besides the living room. This 19-inch model is just what all these people will be interested in. It looks just like most of the other standard HDTVs with a sleek black exterior. The ports are located at the side or the back. It is very small and looks just like a pretty picture on the walls. You can also keep it on the stand which can swivel to give you a better view from any place in the room. This also helps you to access the controls at the back with ease.

Although you will get 720p resolution in this TV, the picture quality is quite good. Owing to the smaller display, the pictures are very sharp and the colors very bright. The 60 Hz refresh rate is also instrumental in providing clear images even in the scenes which have images flitting by with great speed. You can watch car races and play exciting games without noticing any trailing of images. The dynamic contrast ratio of 600,000:1 improves the black levels and presents images which have clear contours and you can also distinguish the darker objects clearly.

Haier HL19SL2 Features and Specifications Review:

  • 19″ Screen
  • 720p Full HD
  • 60Hz Full Motion
  • 1.6″ Deep
  • USB Time Shift
  • SRS TruSurround XT
  • 1 HDMI Input
  • AVL Sound Leveler
  • LED Edge Lighting
  • USB Input

The USB Time Shift is a unique feature provided to help you catch up on the parts of the Tv program you missed out while attending a call or cooking up your dinner. If you have this TV in your kitchen and you have to take your eyes away to attend to the dish in the oven, then you can easily get back and rewind to see what you have missed. However, you cannot rewind a large part of the program. Depending on the size of the memory you have used, you can rewind only a few minutes of the program or fast forward the commercials only. This whole procedure is possible by connecting an USB drive to a USB port.

The SRS TruSurround XT sound truly provides a very good audio experience. With a 2x3W sound output, you feel as if you are surrounded by speakers on all sides which help you to listen to the sound without straining your ears. The AVL Auto Volume Leveler also adds to the relaxing sound by adjusting the audio to a particular level so that there is no irritating surge in the volume while changing channels or when the commercials come on. And all the features of this TV are ably supported with a consumption of minimum energy. By adhering to the strict requirements of Energy Star 4.0, this set conserves a lot of energy and thereby decreases your electricity bills. You are sure to be happy with the performance of this set. gives Haier HL19SL2 4/5 stars!
