Summary: I bought one from a local retailer tonight, hauled it home, opened it up, plugged it in, and found the only thing that works is the power/standby LED when toggled by the button. No picture, not even for source or menu; no sound. Even the remote doesn't work to cycle the power; one cell is at 1.5V, the other provided with the unit measures -0.02V with a digital multimeter. Back into the box and back to the store tomorrow. Buyer beware.
Summary: Complaint 1 is it's not listed in DirecTV to program my DirecTV remote, so I have to have two remotes out to change the volume and turn it on and off. I did not take a star off for this because that is a joint problem with DirecTV and myself for buying an off brand TV - one of the problems with buying an off-brand TV. Problem 2 is the grainy picture. I've tried it with multiple boxes in multiple locations and it's always the same grainy picture - pretty crummy.
Summary: Bought a HAIER TV in 2011- and the the component input never worked. Lived with that for a while then decided to use the "Warranty" (Warranty is Chinese for "Yeah right-- sucker!!!") Sept. 2012. The repair center (repair center is Chinese for "fake storefront that is never open") was closed when I tried to take the TV in during business hours.
Summary: We bought this model last year at Christmas for our daughters room. She's under 10 and uses it mainly to watch dvds and some tv. We got it for around 175 I believe so it was an awesome deal. I will say my expectations were low due to the price point and a brand I wasnt unaware of...but its performed well and we've had zero issues with it. The speakers aren't great but my daughter really doesn't notice and overall we've have been pleased.
Summary: I purchased this TV for a seldom used room, and I purchased it specifically for the low price because it would seldom be used. It was broken within 9 months, and had most likely only been used 20 times in those 9 months. Because it is only 32 inches, I had to carry the tv in for warranty repair, to a Haier authorized center. I live in Tampa, FL, which is a really big city... really really big. There was not one authorized center in all of TAMPA!
Summary: I bought this TV for my living room. I don't need to have some huge big TV and this 32" was perfect. My mom had actually bought this same one a few months before me and loved it. I have absolutely NO complaints!! The sound is fantastic as well as the color and picture. I did customize the settings to my liking but I do that with any new TV. This TV has been a great addition to my house and at a complete steal too!
