PCWorld Journalists Get Hands-On Experience With Haier's HDTVs at CES On January 6, local time in the U.S.A., the 44th International Consuming Electronics Show (CES), the largest of its kind in the world, kicked off in Alaska. During the show, Journalist Patrick Miller and his colleagues from PCWorld, an American magazine, visited Haier's booth and were impressed by our HDTV. On January 10, Patrick Miller described his experience on PCWorld's official website as follows. "Haier's 2011 HDTVs look bright, sharp, and slick ¡ª and as the official TV brand of the NBA, we simply had to stop by at the CES show floor and check out their upcoming gear. First, we took a look at their revamped edge-lit LED TV lineup ¡ª the high-end EV series, which comes in 42-inch, 46-inch, and 55-inch models. Design-wise, their glass bezel and swivel stand look slick, if slightly conservative. Next, we got a quick tour through their Internet-connected features, which were served by the built-in Wi-Fi adapter. At the moment, they've got Netflix, Pandora, and Hulu Plus, with plans to add Blockbuster's video rental service. Of course, the EV series can automatically update the firmware through the Wi-Fi network connection, so they'll be able to add new services as they become available." At the CES, Haier showcased the world's first "high-intelligence" TV featuring a combination of multipoint touch control and gesture control. Its appearance has not only overturned the traditional notion of TV, but also revealed renewed vitality of the TV industry. "In 2011, TVs will be endowed with more and more functions until they don't look like TVs anymore," said David Pogue, the consumer-electronics columnist for the New York Times.
