Haier HL32XSL2 Review – 32-inch LED LCD HDTV

 

Slimmer HDTVs are in and Haier seems to understand its customers' preference for design as well as technology while designing its new lineup. The Haier HL32XSL2 (Black) is a 32 inch LED HDTV that blends aesthetic design and state-of-the-art technology...

The Haier HL32XSL2 (Black) with its ultra slim cabinet is slimmer than an average LCD TV. The 1.2” thick panel allows the TV to be mounted to the wall just like the frame of a picture. The thickest part of the television is just 1.22”. The piano black...

Haier .... Official LCD of the NBA?

 

All in all an under 300 32" LCD that gets the job done. It does what it is supposed to, and not anything more or less. My personal opinion - save 100 more and go for a samsung or sony led-lcd or get a better Haier T.V. They do have some nicer ones...

Well, it was cheap. The TV is relatively thin for an LCD - Not hugely so like Samsung's or LG's and certainly doesn't compare to LED-LCD's but it does the trick. A bit of a hassle to mount as the casing is slightly off of alignment from standard...

Runs pretty friggen hot - I will be surprised if the TV makes it past year #1 even in the guest room. Unfortunately it is well over 100f on the back of the tv (infrared thermometer) -- also I have heard rumblings of cr@ppy capacitors inside it. Haven't...

Great bedroom TV

 

The audio outputs are a disappointment, but will not deter me from giving this TV a high score. The price, image quality and easy setup won hands down. I use this as a bedroom TV and it fits nicely. The sound from the TV works well for the bedroom use....

The great price is what made me decide this TV. Free shipping made this an ever sweeter deal. This TV was easy to hook up and start watching

I was a little dissappointed with the RCA Audio outputs. I hooked it up to my stereo receiver and sounded garbled. I unhooked one of the RCA channels and it cleared up some. I changed out the cables to make sure that wasn't the problem, but that didn't...

great buy

 

great buy for the price, ps3 and laptop claim it can handle 1080p

took me a while to figure out how to set the aspect ratio to 'widescreen'-this should be default for hdmi connections but isn't

Works Great

 

Comcast Remote with the Red OK Button: Code is 10030

Great Picture! 4 HDMI ports making it so I don't need a switchbox anymore. Good audio

Not a real con but the Universal Remote Code for Comcast was bad. Took about 30 minutes of searching via the remote to find out that it uses the same code as the brand AOC

Awesome Deal for a 32"

 

Newegg shipping was fast and great as always!

I found this TV an amazing deal for 270. The picture is nice and crisp no matter if watching HD or not. The sound is surprisingly good and loud (I wish my Sony 40" in the Living Room would have half that sound). Setup was a breeze. Clear and logical...

The initial boot seems a little long compared to my other LCD TV and channel switching is a little sluggish. Other than that, no complaints whatsoever
