Summary: This has just arrived today at my doorstep! I got straight to work on setting up this beauty. Right out of the box, I became aware that it was elegantly designed and was aesthetically pleased. The primary reason I decided to go with this soundbar was because I also have a 42" vizio LED.
Summary: I like how this soundbar looks and is a very clean package.I have not had any LED light issues and it works fine with my 64 inch samsung plasma,,,sound is very good ,,bass and Sub is respectable,,i love the no mess wireless sub and rear speakers,,,over all a great buy for the $250 i spent on it.
Summary: I purchased this from my local Costco mostly due to the fact that the setup was perfect for my space and being closer to a true 5.1 system than a regular sounbar and sub combo. Having the satellite speakers plug into the sub is a real plus. Out of the box this system is very easy to setup.
Summary: So far the home theater system is fine. At first sound was not up to par until I bought an optic hookup to replace the RCA cords. One small irritating problem is the sound mutes sometimes when changing channels...might be Charter Cable. ??? Sound returns when changing back and fourth or on and off.
Summary: Purchased at looking at lots of other products and reading all the review positive and negative. The only issue I have is with lowering the volume. It lowers to a point then just shuts off. If you are in Dolby or SRS the minimum volume is higher than I would like.
Sounds great. Good value. Yes, the LEDs fail, but so what?

Summary: We upgraded to the Vizio from a Polk Audio Instant Home Theater. Not a knock on the Polk -- it simulates surround sound from two-channel stereo, with no rear speakers -- it's not an apples-to-apples comparison.
Terrific alternative to a full-fledged surround system. Sounds great - but not full-surround

Summary: For its price this really enhances your listening experience on your tv and is very easy/convenient to setup. You won't get the best surround sound experience (very limited front-side left/right imaging.. but rear L/R is decent).
Summary: I've only had the system for a little over a month so I can't comment on its longevity. I'm using it on a Panasonic 55" 3D TV connected with a fiber optics cable. The sound quality is much better than I expected.
