    I purchased this “ultra slim” TV to mount flush on a wall so that it would stick out from the wall as little as possible. Well, the TV body itself is only 1.5″ deep, but the coax cable/antenna connector on the back of the unit protrudes another 3/8″, and the smallest low profile right-angle coax connector adds another 3/8″, meaning you have to mount at least 3/4″ away from the wall to connect the antenna cable.

    The supplied power connector from wall wart protrudes 1.25″ from back of unit before the wire will bend, meaning the minimum distance from wall is 1.25″ unless you find a right-angle power connector and replace the supplied power connector.

    All the other connectors such as HDMI, USB, and component video are also on the back of the unit, only slightly recessed, requiring additional space off the wall even with low-profile right-angle connectors. The headphone jack is inconveniently on the back of the unit as well, so you can’t plug in headphone if mounted on a wall. USB is on the back too, so although you can play movies from USB memory source, you can’t plug in the USB slot on the back if mounted on a wall without using an extension cable.

    I was excited to find an ultra-slim TV in a 19″ size, but I’m very disappointed because I wanted to mount it flush to the wall which is just not possible with how the cable connectors are located. I’m not sure why they bothered to put VESA mounting holes on the back of it.

    Nice try, Haier. Good technology, but poor connector design for what you’re trying to sell as an “ultra slim” TV.

    Update: Finally mounted about 1″ off the wall to make room for various right-angle cable connectors behind it. Now I’ve found that the vertical viewing angle is really really poor even at 20 degrees below level. The spec on Haier’s website says 160 degree vertical viewing angle, but that is just plain wrong. At 20 degrees below level all the reds disappear. At 30 degrees below level it looks like a photo negative. At 45 degrees below level the picture is completely invisible.

    Also, antenna channel scan finds quite a bit fewer channels than a different brand LCD TV I tried a month or so ago with the exact same antenna location/direction.
