Haier is no stranger to the HDTV market, however CNET has as of yet only reviewed one HDTV from the company. Kind of weird seeing as how Haier is the official HDTV of the NBA.

We'll soon have a chance to make it up to the NBA, though, as this week Haier is introducing two new HDTVs. The 47-inch HL47XT1 and the 42-inch HL42XT1 each have a 120Hz refresh rate and LED backlights. Each also includes SRS TruSurround XT Sound and four HDMI ports. In addition, each TV has a Sound Chamber-hidden speaker with a separate bass port, a tweeter, and mid-range speakers.

No word yet on respective prices and as for availability, for now, Haier has only stated 2009.
