Has a reasonable number of inputs; the base is a little cheap. Haier is a joint German/Chinese company that makes major appliances. At 32", the difference between 720 and 1080p is negligible.
I paid about $100 more than this for a Westinghouse 32" LED (not LCD) and same thing...picture good, sound is crap.
Fortunately, I have it in my bedroom just to play something as I drift off to sleep, and it has what amounts to a mixer built in so that helped...but if I can find a cheap sound bar, that fixes that (as it did for my 47" LCD in my living room).
