Haier HL22XSL2 Review: 22” LED LCD HDTV

Up for Review: Haier HL22XSL2 LED LCD TV. Haier has chosen to enrich the viewing experience of its customers by keeping the 1080p resolution in this 22-inch TV. With most manufacturers preferring 720p resolution for their lower end models, it seems rather surprising that Haier has not done the same. The 1080p resolution certainly makes the picture quality more powerful and also gives you the satisfaction of having the best. Besides, you have the pleasure of watching premium quality movies on your Blu-ray disc player with 1080p resolution. The sleek black looks also add to the pleasure of watching pictures on this TV. Being only about 1.6 inches in thickness at the deepest point, the TV looks quite pretty on the walls.

The 22-inch TV might seem a bit small for your home, but Haier has opted to keep most of the high-end features in this set too. The most prominent among them is the option to rewind, pause and fast forward parts of the program you are watching. This certainly gives you flexibility in watching TV because you can get up and attend to your chores and get back to watch all the portions of the program you had missed out. But there is a limitation on the time you can fast forward or rewind and this depends on the size of the memory you have. An USB drive connected to the USB port gives you this facility. Now you need not watch the commercials if you don’t feel like as you can fast forward them at will.

Haier HL22XSL2 Features and Specifications Review:

  • 22″ Screen
  • 1080p Full HD
  • 120Hz Full Motion
  • 1.6″ Deep
  • USB Time Shift
  • SRS TruSurround XT
  • 1 HDMI Input
  • AVL Sound Leveler
  • LED Edge Lighting
  • USB Input

This 22-inch TV has hidden speakers but you get the feeling that you are surrounded with speakers on all sides. This is because of the SRS TruSurround XT sound that the set has. You no longer have the need to strain your ears or fight with your partner to get the most privileged seat in the room. There is also a 3D effect associated with the TV. The AVL Auto Volume Leveler evens out the sound to give you just the kind you want to hear. You can adjust the sound level once and then the TV automatically brings the sound to this level. This is very helpful when you change channels or when the commercials come on.

Connectivity is quite good in this small TV with 1 HDMI, 1 component video input and a USB port. Any high definition device can be connected through the HDMI and the USB port allows you to connect digital devices. You can now watch movies on the Blu-ray disc player and play your photos on the TV from the digital camera. The TV also heeds the energy requirements of Energy Star 4.0. This TV is in fact perfect for a small house or if you are interested in a second TV in your house to keep in the kitchen or your kid’s room. gives Haier HL22XSL2 4/5 stars!
