Weak reception

Anonymous, Newegg
16 July 2011
  • Summary: This TV would be handy on a boat or camping trips, or for evenings on the patio.
  • Pros: The TV is very portable, and has a beautiful display. The rechargeable battery makes it economical to use anywhere. If only it would pick up some stations indoors, it would be the perfect TV to use in emergencies.
  • Cons: It will not pick up a single station indoors where I will need to use it during hurricane season.

Great for $35!

Earl C., Newegg

  • Summary: Remote control that came with it did not work. I called Haier and they said that they do not manufacture this model anymore, and they could only offer a refund. I don't think I could find another TV for this price, so I'll just live without the remote.
  • Pros: Cheap, small, easy to understand controls, comes with a lot of accessories. I live in Columbus, OH and out here the TV signals are pretty strong, and the included antenna can get channels fine as long as I'm near a window.
  • Cons: Very low resolution (480 x 214), speakers are weak, antenna is not that great. I had a scare on the first day when after an hour of use, the screen went white and all I could get was sound. I let it sit overnight and it was fine the next day. I kept using it for a week straight and the problem ha...

Haier recertified 7" TV

Martin W., Newegg
16 June 2011
  • Summary: Great for the price. Bought this for the wife, and I watch the competitor TV. Had to give it to her because I watch some weak UHF air stations, and this TV won't maintain reception. My wife and I have these 7" TVs directly under our computer monitors and enjoy the multi-tasking.
  • Pros: Works great for in-city, cable, and satellite use. Low price is worth the expenditure. Nice picture.
  • Cons: Not nearly as good as competitor 7" TV for reception of weaker signals. If you deal with weak air signals, do NOT buy this one. Volume is not very loud on the speaker. Will not "add-scan." Remote is poor.

Not the best, but not horrible.

David L., Newegg
15 April 2011
  • Summary: I have not tried any other brands, but if I had the choice again, I would probably buy a different brand/model.
  • Pros: Bright screen, many inputs, remote, and detachable antenna. Also it has an internal battery!
  • Cons: The AC adapter plug is very touchy. One small move and it stops recharging. Battery option is nice but it does not last long. MAYBE 30 minutes if you are lucky....

It Works

Johnny W., Newegg
23 February 2011
  • Summary: Other than a disappointing slip-in by Newegg and the lack of on-the-air channels in the Vancouver area, this unit isn't too bad. Could take it with you camping. Don't expect HD quality though, the screen is tiny.
  • Pros: - Small, portable - Lasts moderately long
  • Cons: - Channel reception with provided antenna could be a hit/miss - Newegg.ca shipped me an open box/used unit, without letting me know; good thing it worked or else I would've screamed bloody murder

Poor reception

Lloyd B., Newegg
2 February 2010
  • Pros: Good pic, controls worked well, size just right if maybe a tad small.
  • Cons: Poor reception and the stand was not adequate. Odd because the transmitting tower was in plain view about 8 miles away on top of a mountain. Even got a powered antenna - nada. Purchased at and returned to Target.

OK TV

Anonymous, Newegg
16 November 2009
  • Summary: I have this setting next to my bed on my nightstand. Works fine for this use. Picks up all the digital channels in my area. It could use a better stand as it is always falling over. I could not find one to fit it however. If someone knows where to find one let me know. Post it on this sight.
  • Pros: Easy set up. Decent picture.
  • Cons: Picture could be better. Remote not well laid out
