Great TV for the price,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Haier LE46A2280 46-Inch 1080p 60Hz Slim LED HDTV (Electronics)
I bought this TV on Wednesday and had it by Friday with the free super saver shipping. Amazing. I am not a tv/ tech freak like most people who buy TVs. I was looking for a bargain and I think this TV is worth what I paid. It exceeds expectations for a $350 hdtv set.
The picture quality is great, very sharp and very bright. Great colors and sharpness. I was really worried about getting a 60hz tv because I watch a lot of sports and will play xbox on occasion. I have not hooked up the xbox yet, but I watched some basketball and football on this set and it looks great. I have it next to a 120hz set and honestly, I cant really tell a difference. It is not choppy and it is not blurry while watching sports. There may be a slight difference but you really have to concentrate to look for it.
If you are a casual/ average viewer, you will be pleased. If you want to compare this to 600-700 tv, I'm sure it isnt as good, but is that what you are expecting? The quality is more than fine and you will be satisfied for the price you pay.
As others have said, this tv has 2 HDMI ports, not 3. The remote is pretty cheap and the reference manual is a joke. The stand is good quality and the tv itself, picture aside, looks really nice. The bezel is small and it has a brushed texture finish. It doesn't look cheap and if it didn't have the name "haier" on it, you would probably think it cost a lot more than it does. I read reviews about the speakers and how much they suck. At first when I was testing it out, I thought the speakers really did kinda suck. It has a plug for hooking up your own set of speakers so I quickly remedied that.
With all this being said, I have owned the tv for a couple days and have tried to test it out with movies, sports, and general tv. Overall it is good and I give it a thumbs up.
I should also note that it did not have any dead pixels. If I run into any issues, I will update this review.

Hey! Have you tested the Xbox on it as yet? Can you post some pics of the picture quality please? I wanna buy one but just nervous about the brand and grey patches on dark scenes...

Its a fronter for shitty chinese OEM products like RCA, Sylvania, Polaroid, Emerson, PhillipsMagnavox, JVC, Vizio etc. If you want a TV thats actually good save up and get a Samsung, LG, Sony(overpriced), Panasonic, Toshiba or even a Sanyo.
