Terrific alternative to a full-fledged surround system. Sounds great - but not full-surround
23 January 2014
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). I love that the rear speakers are wireless (they connect into the sub-woofer which by defaults needs to placed behind you for this sytem). The sound is very good. You'll enjoy your tv a lot more.
Summary: I bought this VHT510 for my living room. This room is 32x28 and whit a flat screen we know it doesn't put out a lot of sound. It was easy to hook up , and did not take long to set up the surround.I could not believe how great the sound was. The remote lets you control you bass, treble, front and rear speakers.The two rear speakers truly gives it the full surround sound I was looking for. This VHT510 sounds as great, if not better then most I have heard.
Summary: I use this in my bedroom to provide surround sound, as the speakers in a new flat panel TV are horrible. For this situation this system works perfectly. It provides a better range and a surround sound experience. Movies and Video games both sound good but nothing an audiophile would gush about. I also love that I can stick the wireless sub in a closet, the sound bar attaches to my wall mount (Vizio makes one for the sound bar).
Troublesome to hook up but worth the effort.I could not beat the price!

Summary: The item I purchased was refurbished but I couldn't find a mark on anything.I have been trying to find this Vizio soundbar for several weeks.The sound is excellent.The surround sound speakers need to be stronger though.The real challenge was getting the soundbar and subwoofer to "pair" and then to "link".It will try your patience.Now that it is in the past it sure sounds good in my living room.
Summary: I think the system is a low priced system with great sound qualities . Easy to assemble and implement.I have used this system for some time now and find it , well worth the money and recommend it to any one.
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 have been very impressed with all of Vizio's products. I purchased the VHT510 almost a month ago and have not had any issues. I have been waiting for the LED issue to pop up but have been fortunate enough for that to not happen yet. The sound quality has been great. It is definitely highly recommended to use an optical cable versus the RCA jacks for optimum sound quality. Setup was quick and easy.
