Summary: I bought this item in 2011 and the the component output stopped working. I filed a warranty claim with the company in September and was told they would repair it. I had to take it into their repair shop 55 miles away from my home and it was closed during posted business hours. I returned home and asked them to come get it- Waited 2 weeks with them saying they would be there any day. Then was told I'd have to reapply for service- they could not come get it.
Summary: I bought this TV as a cheap basement TV for an exercise room. At the time I figured for ~$215 how can I go wrong ... as long as it works for 3-4 years. After too little usage over the past 12 months (meaning not enough exercise), the TV simply quit while watching it a couple of days ago. The TV was almost exactly a year old.
Summary: Purchased in Nov 2011 and it died today Dec 20, 2012 - UNBELIEVABLE!!! Low usage in bedroom. Funny that the power light still turns on and off with the remote but no picture and sound. I'll never buy another Haier brand anything and I will stay away from all off brands. DON'T BUY!!!!
Summary: Just like many others had complained, mine stop working after less than 100 hours watching. I bought it a year ago as a secondary TV but didn't use it often. all of sudden it has no picture and sound, the on/off light is still turning blue/red. it seems this is a common problem for Haier TV, at least for this model. Amazon shouldn't sell this defective product at all!!!
Summary: TV just died, no sound, no picture! Bought Oct 30th 2011 and it died toady. Sound was pretty bad from day 1. Have no idea if I can get it fixed or replaced, going to check into it! Very unhappy... TV was in our spare bedroom... rarely used! Maybe 30 hours of viewing n it!
Summary: If I could give this TV zero stars, I would. Its the worst TV ever. Picture was adeqate, but sound was like tin and horribly grating. Real problem was life span. The TV just went black one day... about a week after the warranty expired. Apparently the main board "fried". A check on the internet (which I should have done first) shows this to be a common problem. Add that to the truly horrific excuse they have for tech support -- and you get ZERO stars.

Summary: I BOUGHT THIS TV BRAND NEW BUT WITH A "NO POWER" FAULT FOR $75 INCLUDING TAXES AND SHIPPING. THE SOLDERING ON THE POWER BOARD WAS VERY SLOPPY. AFTER REPAIRING ONE COLD SOLDER JOINT, ONE SOLDER BRIDGE AND TOUCHING UP THE REST OF THE BOARD, IT ROARED TO LIFE. GREAT PICTURE, GREAT SOUND, GREAT OTA TUNER, GREAT REMOTE,I HAVE ENJOYED WATCHING IT FOR THE LAST MONTH.
TV has never worked, still in box and still fighting to get money back or new tv
Don't Buy This TV, Amazon

Summary: We purchased this TV as a gift for our daughter. To our dismay when we went to turn it on, there was no picture, no nothing. We contacted the company (more than once to get a response) and finally they sent us a repairman, who confirmed there was no hope for this TV. That was almost 2 months ago and the company is just totally ignoring us and giving us the run around.
Summary: Have only had the TV for a full day or so but so far it is working OK. If something changes I will edit the review. Setting up is a bit annoying since you must put the TV face down on a soft surface to attach the stand, other TV's I've seen you simply slide the TV on the stand and you can screw it in with the TV in the correct vertical position. Also the instructions call for 4 equal sized screws but the screws that came with it was not equal size (length).
