LE40D3281 LED TV

  • 40" Class 1080p 120Hz LED HDTV
    40" Class (40" Diagonal) 1080p LED HDTV with 120Hz Full Motion Refresh Rate


1080p Full HDTV

1080p delivers the highest quality picture possible from a high-definition source. 1080p televisions accept a 1080p signal to display a resolution of 1920 x 1080.


LED backlit

LED backlight delivers sharper picture quality with crisp detail, vibrant true-to-life color, and superb contrast. More energy efficient than both plasma and basic LCD TVs, an LED TV is economical and helps the environment.


Thin Frame

The thin frame on Haier's LED HDTVs measures under an inch. This makes for more viewable screen on a TV with smaller overall dimensions, allowing a larger screen to fit in smaller spaces and making it easier to get lost in the high definition picture.


120Hz Full Motion Refresh Rate

By doubling the refresh rate and interpolating detail in fast motion scenes, 120Hz Full Motion Refresh Rate provides enhanced picture quality, reproducing crisp and detailed true-to-life moving images.


Dynamic Contrast

A high Dynamic Contrast Ratio can improve television image quality by providing superb color contrast, resulting in clearer detail. Brightness levels adjust to make it easier to see all of the action on the screen, even in areas of dark shadow.


Energy Star

The Energy Star label means a product meets strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the US Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy. By choosing Energy Star® qualified electronics, you help prevent global warming and promote cleaner air without sacrificing the product quality and performance you expect.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Average at best My father purchased this TV to replace is aging plasma. The TV looks great, has a thin bezel, and is very light. It mounted much easier than the 50 lb plasma it replaced. The picture is decent enough. The remote control censor is placed on the bottom right and has a tiny LED light that is impossible to see. This is annoying but not a deal breaker. The worst feature is the sound. The "Sound chamber" sounds hollow. It might not be as bad if the tv is on a stand and not mounted. But against the wall the sound echoes and sounds flat. My father purchased a sound bar but this TV has no optical output. Had to return that sound bar for one with coaxial input. Not a deal breaker, but annoying. July 6, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great TV for the money - remote is awful, sound is ok This was a TV for the master bedroom so I didnt want top of the line. This was a great buy for the money - big screen, crisp picture and nice sound for the size of my room. Biggest complaint is the remote is essentially worthless. It only works if you are pointing it EXACTLY at the sensor - range is tiny - too high, low or to the left or right & it doesn't work. This is somewhat minor in the big picture (no pun intended) but is quite inconvenient after owning it for 3 months. May 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product serves my needs to watch tv This product serves my needs to watch tv. i would purchase another electronic of this brand. March 3, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not worth it if you play games Has about 1 sec imput lag when playing game (which is awful), not worth getting if you are a gamer. January 18, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by TV works great. Not for Xbox 360. The picture and sound are good. This TV is not good for playing Xbox 360. There is a time lag on games like Call of Duty. November 3, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Must be a lemon Owned the TV less than 6 months with very little usage and now it won't power on. Emailed the company and they will service if you have the receipt. August 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent 40 inch LED TV...terrific bang for the buck! Bought this a week before Christmas 2013 though COSTCO online. Shipping was included. Set up was straight forward. Quality is very good for the money. With TV prices coming down weekly for the needs I have this was a good starter for me. My older Panasonic 24 inch was 26 years old...and still functioning. Buying it through COSTCO in Canada added 2 additional years of warranty (above the Haier 1 year) & 90 day from purchase date return policy was a BONUS. So far happy with my purchase. It's the middle of February at the moment. Watched Captain Phillips on Blu Ray the other night. TV and DVD combination were superb. As for sound reproduction it is adequate in my 20 X 12 foot room and I have tied in my trusty Kenwood stereo receiver (22 years old)...and that works for me. February 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by very satisfied great price, great picture,great HD. I HAVE THREE HAIER WINDOW UNIT AIRCONDITIONERS, SO I KNEW I COULD TRUST THE QUALITY. February 12, 2014
