Haier HL40XSL2 Review » Key Feature Ratings
Price The cost of this LED TV is $22 per inch of screen size. This is priced about average.
ENERGY STAR This Haier TV is not ENERGY STAR qualified. Most new televisions manufactured today are ENERGY STAR.
Efficiency Not ENERGY STAR qualified and uses about 40% more electricity than any ENERGY STAR television.
Design Incorporates 5 key design features that impact its functions and performance. This HDTV has an average number of key features.
Best-Seller This TV is not a top best-seller at a national store including Amazon, Best Buy, Sears, and Wal-Mart.
Resolution Designed with 1080p resolution, the highest definition available. Provides nearly twice the resolution of 720p, and allows you to fully utilize 1080p videos or programming.
Side Inputs Electronic inputs are not available on the side of the TV. Devices such as DVD players and video game players must be connected in the rear.
LED Designed with edge-lit LED backlighting instead of standard LCD fluorescent bulbs. LED is more energy efficient and allows for significantly thinner TV designs.
Local Dim This LED television does not have local dimming capability. On / Off dimming of LED zones can significantly enhance the quality of your picture.
Frame Rate Employs blur reduction technology that increases the frame rate to 120 Hz (120 frames per second). The picture should be crisp and clear for sports and action movies.
THX Like most HDTVs, this is not THX certified. THX certification generally indicates that the TV will have high-quality picture performance. – Haier HL40XSL2 Review
DLNA Not DLNA certified (Digital Living Network Alliance). DLNA promotes interoperability between electronic devices, which makes sharing digital content easier and more convenient.
3D This Haier television is not 3D ready. 3D TVs allow you to view 3D content from select video games, Blu-ray discs, and programming, but are much more expensive.
Wi-Fi This Haier HDTV is not Wi-Fi capable. You cannot wirelessly connect to your home-based internet network.
Internet Internet access is not available with this TV. You cannot view streaming internet videos, widgets, or applications that are available with many brands.
DVD Player Like most televisions, this Haier TV does not have a built-in DVD or Blue-ray player. Most consumers purchase these items separately.
Depth This Haier HDTV is ultra-thin with a depth of only 1.2″. Provides a sleek look, especially if you can wall mount-it. – Haier HL40XSL2 Review
Frame Standard, multiple-level design with some space between the screen and the bezel. Single-level designs can provide a seamless look that is preferred by some consumers.
Speakers Speakers provide 20 watts of total output power, which is about average. – Haier HL40XSL2 Review
HDMI Provides 4 HDMI inputs so that you can connect a cable box and other devices such as a DVD player, video game console, and PC.
