Haier HL24XSL2 Review: 24” LED LCD HDTV

Up for Review: Haier HL24XSL2 LED LCD TV. Haier has made a cautious entry into this year’s LED HDTV market by introducing only basic models with a few unique features. It has not experimented by providing the 3D or the Internet access technologies but wants to watch how the people accept them before it forays into that zone. Therefore, it seems clear that it does not want to take on the HDTV giants in the really feature-rich segment but wants to carve a niche for itself in the basic HDTV sector. This 24-inch TV is a good offering in this direction which has the standard HDTV features and a good-looking exterior too. It is just about 1.6 inches in depth which makes it look great on the walls. The smart looking bezel also looks good on the new, circular stand.

This set has a full-HD 1080p resolution which makes the images really come alive. You get to see excellent picture quality both when you are viewing TV programs and watching movies on the Blu-ray disc player. If you are a gaming freak, then you can also connect the gaming console and play games in 1080p resolution. With a 60 Hz refresh rate, you can watch the images with limited blurring or trailing. The dynamic contrast ratio of 600,000:1 also makes sure that you get to see clear images with dark blacks and pure whites. The images too are clear and crisp with the outlines really vivid against the background.

Haier HL24XSL2 Features and Specifications Review:

  • 24″ Screen
  • 1080p 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

This TV has a unique feature which gives you the privilege of rewinding and fast forwarding bits of the program at will. With the USB Time Shift technology, you can connect an USB drive to an USB port and use this memory to store parts of the program you might miss while attending to an urgent call from your office. The size of the memory limits the amount of time you can rewind or fast forward. You can use memory of sizes 2, 4 and 8 GB which will provide you with few minutes of the missed program. You can also skip the commercials by fast forwarding them.

The SRS TruSurround XT sound is also a good feature in this TV. It simulates the feeling of having phantom speakers all around you and this helps you to hear the sound clearly. No matter in which part of the room you are seated, you can hear the dialogues without straining your ears. The AVL Sound Leveler also takes care of the discrepancies in the sound level. It allows you to set the volume at the level which is comfortable for your ears and then adjusts it when you change channels or the commercials come on. In fact, this set is a good one for those who want a good HDTV with great picture quality but for a small price. gives Haier HL24XSL2 4/5 stars!
