Haier HL24XSLW2 Review: 24” LED LCD HDTV

Up for Review: Haier HL24XSLW2 LED LCD TV. With Haier getting ready to join the top league in the HDTV market; it has unleashed a range of LED TVs for the consumers this year. This model is one of the smaller sets which would appeal to the section of society who don’t like to dig too deep into their pockets. It also serves as a second TV in the house to keep in your kitchen or your office to watch the occasional soap or catch up with the news. Although this model has a smaller screen, it is no way different from the larger display models in this series other than having a thicker depth and 1 HDMI. The rest of the features are almost the same and you can enjoy the same unique features even in this small TV.

The depth of the TV is at best 1.6 inches when measured at the center. This is about 0.4 inches more than the larger sized models but can hold its ground in front of any other LED TV from the leading brands. It will still look a great sight on the walls. With its shimmering white bezel, it sets off the décor of the room to perfection. This set has 1080p resolution which is very surprising in a TV of 24-inches screen size. Most TVs of this size usually sport 720p resolution which is quite enough for the picture clarity. But with 1080p resolution, you can see the movies on Blu-ray disc players with just the required picture quality. The dynamic contrast ratio of 600,000:1 is also great for the improved black levels to add to the natural look of the images.

Haier HL24XSLW2 Features and Specifications Review:

  • 24″ 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

Although the audio system of this TV has just 2x3W output power, it has SRS TruSurround XT sound to compensate for that. This technology helps create a feeling of having virtual speakers all around you, engulfing you with the sound of the dialogues and the music. The sound leveler and distortion control help provide just the right level of sound which will sound pleasant to your ears. You can avoid the cacophony of the commercials or change in sound level when you surf different channels through this feature. A home theater system is not an absolute necessity with this set anymore.

Perhaps the feature which will really attract the consumers is the USB Time Shift, which will enable you to pause, rewind and fast forward live TV. Although it seems unbelievable, this is now possible by integrating USB drive in the USB input. The size of the memory will dictate the amount of time you can rewind or fast forward. You have an option of using 2, 4 or 8 GB of memory. And to use this function without any difficulty, Haier has provided a good remote with buttons for this purpose. Thus, this set is perfect for your kitchen, when you can rewind the TV to catch up on the show that you missed out while cooking. The affordable price can also be a turn-on. gives Haier HL24XSLW2 4/5 stars!
