Haier HL32XSLW2 Review: 32” LED LCD HDTV

Up for Review: Haier HL32XSLW2 LED LCD TV. In a bid to provide something different for the HDTV consumer, Haier has introduced this series in both the black and white colors. This particular model has a shining white bezel which is a welcome change from the solid black colors of most of the HDTVs released this year. Measuring just about 1.22 inch in the thickest part, this TV is sure to look great when mounted on the walls. A 32-inch display might seem a bit on the smaller side but it will be a good addition to your son’s dorm or your own office room. The price is another important consideration which is quite reasonable if you consider the unique features it offers.

You need not connect home theater speakers to get the desired sound effects when you are watching movies or playing games. The SRS TruSurround XT sound can create the effect of phantom speakers all around you which helps you hear the dialogues and music distinctly. A 3D sound field is produced enabling you to hear the sound perfectly irrespective of where you sit in the room. The audio receives additional impetus with the sound leveler and distortion control. This feature helps you adjust the sound at just the level which is pleasing to your ears. When you do this, there will be no fluctuations in sound when you change channels or when you see commercials.

Haier has integrated an interesting USB Time Shift feature in this TV which allows you to pause, rewind or fast forward parts of the program you are watching. You just need to connect a USB drive to the USB output. The size of the USB memory will decide the amount of time you can play back. With this feature in your TV, you can pause the program to take a bite or run the dish washer or even attend to something in the kitchen. Later on, you can rewind to see the parts of the program you had missed. You can also fast forward the commercials if you hate seeing them while watching your favorite talk show. This feature really helps to add a new dimension to your entertainment options.

In keeping with the unique USB Time Shift feature, Haier has also designed a remote control to go with it. It has buttons dedicated for this feature and it also has other buttons skillfully placed to help in navigation. Haier also provides good connectivity options with 4 HDMI, USB input and component and composite inputs. The 4 HDMI are enough for connecting to Blu-ray disc player, gaming devices and camcorders. Digital camera can be connected to the USB input and you can watch all the photos directly on the 32-inch TV in 1080p resolution. This TV is a good option for those who want a good TV with a reasonable price tag. The unique features are of course an added bonus. gives Haier HL32XSLW2 4/5 stars!
