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: 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

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.
Nice picture (while it lasts) ,Terrible Sound, and Worse Customer Service

Summary: I thought for sure I was doing something wrong the first time I turned this TV on, as it literally sounds like the speakers are stuck in a tin can. So if you're going to buy this TV, make sure you have external speakers BEFORE you set the TV up. And enjoy it while it lasts. 6 weeks after I bought it, 1 of the 2 back HDMI ports went dead. Switched the Directv and the Blu-Ray player, and the other component works. So it's the port, not the cable. Really, 6 weeks?
Summary: It worked great at first, then it just went black. Blue and red on / off light still works but nothing else does. Unfortunately it lasted just past the 30 day free shipping return policy on the item. Reading other recently posted reviews it seems many, many of these tvs suffer from the same problem.
Summary: By no means should you consider this low-end LCD TV as your primary home entertainment system display. But that's really not what it was designed for. As a TV for a less-demanding area like a bedroom, kitchen, or perhaps office, this serves quite nicely and does the job for a very respectable price (even more so when I grabbed it for under $200 as a "Black Friday Week" special).
Summary: Ordered this at $199 during the black friday madness. At this price, it's a steal. Video - The video is fantastic. Granted, it's only 720p, but at 32 inches, 1080p is not a huge upgrade. 720p looks clean and the colors and contrast are vibrant. Not the world's best, but very impressive for the price. Audio - Seems people either love this set, or hate it. Granted, the audio is not great, it is tinny and hollow.
Summary: This is a pretty good TV. I got it when it was on sale for $200. Like others have stated the sound is tinny but you can very easily hook up some speakers and then the sound is great. The picture is outstanding and it has 4 modes of picture size. The hook up is a breeze, but the connections are in a weird place. It has hdmi, 2 composite and 1 component hook ups. The TV is a little big in the bedroom for me, but I just reduce the picture size and it is perfect.
