Many of you will know the brand Haier for your dishwashers, washing machines or other appliances. It is a well-known company in China, whose foundation dates back to 1920, when they were only dedicated to manufacturing refrigerators. Times that are long gone for one of the world's leading multinationals in the sale of household appliances and air conditioning devices -10.2% market share only in white label products-.
Analysis of the Haier U55H7000, a 55-inch 4K LED TV and extreme value for money
Currently Haier is also betting on other types of devices for the home, such as this Smart TV, the Haier U55H7000, a 55-inch smart TV capable of 4K playback, with a price that is light years ahead of other devices with similar characteristics. Shall we take a look at it?
Display and layout
The Haier U55H7000 has a display with D-LED backlight, with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 and an aspect ratio of 16: 9. It has a refresh rate of F2R 800 FULL MOTION and a 178º viewing angle. It also features a dynamic contrast of 12,000,000: 1, and a brightness (cd / m2) of 350.
Some really good specifications with which we can see content in 4K –Such as Netflix, for example, which comes pre-installed as standard-, either with files that we reproduce via USB, such as video games on the PS4 Pro or Xbox One X, or any TV channel that broadcasts with this image quality (in Spain we have the TVE 4K test channel).
As for the design, it is nothing to write home about, but at least it is consistent, it is easy to install, and yes, it offers a good number of ports available to the user.
With regard to the rest of the characteristics of the Haier U55H7000, it stands out above all its Smart TV function, allowing the installation of a wide range of applications and streaming content platforms.
How could it be otherwise, it also has WiFi connection and media player with codec HEVC (H.265), together with the following general characteristics:
- Free browser.
- Direct access to YouTube.
- HbbTV (additional content over the internet).
- DLNA and Smart Share function.
- DTS TruSurround HD sound.
- Integrated sound bar with 2 10W speakers.
- Dolby Digital and Surround effect.
- Child lock.
- Hotel mode (clonable by USB).
- Playback via USB and audio / photo / video.
- Energy efficiency class A +.
- Dimensions without stand (mm): 1248 x 86 x 730 (W * H * D).
- Dimensions with stand (mm): 1248 x 276 x 785 (W * H * D).
- Net weight with base: 14.5Kg.
Ports and connectivity
As far as connectivity is concerned, in addition to the aforementioned WiFi, it also has 4 HDMI inputs –If we have several consoles, a TV Box etc. this is wonderful-, 3 USB 2.0 ports, port Ethernet, input for Scart, headphone output and digital audio output. Without a doubt, the ports and connectivity of the Haier TV are one of its highlights.
Price and availability
This TV Haier U55H7000 currently priced at 469.00 euros on the Spanish GearBest website, about $ 546.06 to change. A significant discount on its official price, thanks to the flash offer that will be active during the first days of January.
The truth is that we are faced with a TV that has nothing to envy to other TVs of much better known brands but they cost twice or more. Perhaps where it has been sacrificed the most is in the finish, which may not be as premium as in other more expensive televisions. But at the end of the day, if what we are looking for is image quality and a wide range of ports and functionalities, that is a little less than anecdotal point.
