Haier HL19SLW2 Review: 19” LED LCD HDTV

Up for Review: Haier HL19SLW2 LED LCD TV. You can hardly expect anything more than what Haier has provided in this 19-inch model. In fact, there are not many LED TVs around with all the latest features and selling for quite a reasonable price like this set. At the same time, it comes as no surprise that the resolution has been downgraded to 720p. This resolution is actually quite enough to see sharp pictures while watching the daily fare on television. It also brings down the price to a reasonable level. There may be some problems when you watch movies on the Blu-ray disc player but with the smaller and sharper display, you may not notice the difference.

Being just less than 1.6 inches in depth, this TV is really perfect to be mounted on the walls. The small size may be of great disadvantage if you have a big living room. But it can certainly look great in your kid’s room or the kitchen. This TV is also a good buy for houses which are cramped for space. Even if you have a small house, you can still boast of a LED TV with advanced technology and unique features. Kitchens in large houses too are good places to keep this TV, especially since it has a swivel stand. You can turn it around at an angle while you stand in one place and cook your meals.

Haier HL19SLW2 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

Haier chooses to keep the USB Time Shift feature in this small model too. With the help of this, you can have better control over your viewing options by pausing, rewinding and fast forwarding parts of the program you are watching. It makes use of a USB drive connected to a USB port. The amount of time you can rewind will depend on the size of the memory used. You can use 2, 4 and 8 GB memory which can give you an increasing amount of time you can manage to stay away from the TV in the middle of a program. This feature is again quite proper if you keep the TV in the kitchen as you will surely have to pay some attention to the meal you are preparing for some time.

The audio has been given great importance in this series. Even in this small TV, you have SRS TruSurround XT sound which creates the effect of phantom speakers all around you. This actually makes your ears bathe in the sound of dialogues and music. You no longer have to strain your ears to hear the sound. The AVL Auto Volume Leveler keeps the sound at one level and you are not disturbed by any variations in the sound when you change channels and when the advertisements come on. As far as energy issues are concerned, the TV conforms to the Energy Star 4.0 requirements. In fact, the TV scores high on all counts and is best when you want a second or a third TV for your house. gives Haier HL19SLW2 4/5 stars!
