Haier HL46XSLW2 Review: 46” LED LCD HDTV
Up for Review: Haier HL46XSLW2 LED LCD TV. Haier has joined the league of HDTV manufacturers in unleashing a range of LED TVs in the market. What will impress you most about this series are the dazzling white bezel and its slim and sleek looks. The TV is 1.22 inches thick at the middle which makes it a very good addition to the wall. The 46-inch display looks like a moving picture on the walls. The edges are rounded and it has a narrow bezel with just the Haier logo disturbing the clear, white bezel. This model has all of 1080p display resolution and 120 Hz fast response time. You get to watch clear and crisp pictures without any blurring and artifacts. Be it a skater on the ice or a Jedi warrior swishing his weapon; you get a clear view of each scene.
An interesting feature that has been integrated in this model is the USB time shift. Now you don’t have to miss out on any part of your favorite football action if your baby needs a nappy change. All you have to do is rewind the program and you can watch the scenes you missed out on. In order to make this happen, you have to insert a USB drive in the USB input. Depending on the time length you want to playback, you will need to insert USB memory of different size. You can also pause and fast forward the program you are seeing. You have the option to use 2GB, 4 GB and 8 GB memory. This is quite a unique feature in this TV which adds more value to your entertainment options.
