Haier HL22XSLW2 Review: 22” LED LCD HDTV

Up for Review: Haier HL22XSLW2 LED LCD HDTV. While most HDTV manufacturers give very little emphasis to the TVs with smaller screens, Haier has not disappointed its smaller budget consumers and has given them plenty of features to be happy with. Unlike most of its competitors, it has provided this 22-inch TV with 1080p display resolution which can really make the pictures come alive. It is the normal practice to integrate 720p resolution in the smaller segment of TVs as it suffices for the average TV buyer and also keeps the price on the lower side. But Haier has tried to be different and this effort will certainly prove worthwhile when you watch movies on the Blu-ray disc player.

Another noticeable difference in this model is the dazzling white bezel. Being just 1.6 inches in depth, the TV looks wonderful on the walls. It does provide a change from the stereo typed sleek black looks. The smooth rounded finish of the TV adds to the glamor of its looks. But the feature which is the main draw of the TV is the USB Time Shift. By connecting a USB drive to the USB input, you can actually rewind and watch the parts of the program you missed out on. So you can still attend to your phone calls and come back to watch the goal you missed seeing in the football match. If the commercials are too boring then you can fast forward them too. But the time you can rewind or fast forward depends on the size of the memory you are using.

Haier HL22XSLW2 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

The sound is pretty good with the SRS TruSurround XT which allows multi channel content to be played over the two speakers. It also creates the feeling of having speakers all around you with the sound really filling you from all sides. Now you don’t have to strain your ears to listen to the dialogues if you sitting away from the TV. The AVL Auto Volume Leveler makes sure that once you set the level of sound you require on the TV, it will automatically set the volume to that level whenever there is any change in the volume level. This makes for smooth listening while changing channels or when the commercials come on.

Since energy conservation is a key issue now in every electronic appliance, Haier too is doing its bit to prevent global warming and provide pollution free air. By conforming to the Energy Star 4.0 requirements, the TV adheres to the strict requirements of the standard and saves a lot of energy both in the active and standby modes. The connectivity of this model is also good with 1 HDMI, 1 composite video input, 1 component video input and 1 PC input. There is a USB port too which allows you to watch the photos from the digital camera. In fact, the TV is a good one from all angles and is sure to catch your eye when you go shopping. It can make a good second TV in your house too. gives Haier HL22XSLW2 4/5 stars!
