Summary: I started by looking at a 2.1 system at a store. I found this system, thought the price was great, so I bought it. It worked fine with my Brighthouse connection, but it came into its own when we changed to U-Verse. The surround sound is fantastic! It drives my dogs nuts, though, since they are now hearing things we never heard before. The fact that the subwoofer and rear speakers do not need a wired connection to the sound bar is what sold it for me.
Shattering Bass with Extreme Sound, So much POWER!!!!!!!
21 June 2013
Summary: This unit is definitely well worth the money. The bass that comes out of the woofer is unreal. I had to turn the woofer volume down because it was vibrating my windows and I was afraid they might shatter. The rear satellite speakers are truly amazing and it sounds like the action is right behind me, it is so crystal clear and dynamic. I never thought that this unit would be so good at the price I paid( $124.00 ) but I was wrong.
Awesome Home entertainment when combined with a Vizio 60 inch LED
7 December 2012
Summary: I bought the VHT510 because I was purchasing a Vizio smart TV and wanted to complement the sound without clutter and breaking the bank. It was at 300 at Walmart so I came to my trusted eBay. I am happy that I did. I like the wireless sub which goes into my back room but still gives me enough bass for the entire house.
Summary: Works very well. I would have liked for the two rear speakers to be wireless as well, but they plug into the subwoofer. Not a big deal. Only other thing, if you can't find your remote you can adjust the volume of speakers individually. To clarify what I mean, some movies have a lot of bass, and with the remote you can turn the output (volume) of bass and/or the subwoofer itself rather than turning the systems volume down which might make it hard to hear when something is...
Summary: I've had this great system for a year and a half. Yesterday the LEDs stopped working. This seemed to be a frequent complaint from owners of this unit. I chatted with a Vizio rep and he told me to remove the power cord from the wall outlet, hold down the power button on the bar for 30 seconds and power it back up. The LEDs now work!
Summary: This is one of the best electronic purchases I have made since my Smart Tv!! This is a great system. For a little over $300, it really sounds amazing. I am very happy with it. I also purchased the speaker stands which make the product really stand out and look classy. I love it!! Highly recommend it!!!
Great Performance for the Price and EASY INSTALLATION
6 December 2011
Summary: If you prefer an easier set-up than the typical surround sound 5.1 or 7.1 with Front, Center, Rear speakers and Sub, then this system is for you. Soundbar with Sub and rear speakers sounds great. Very easy set-up. Granted for the REAL Hard Core sound folks, they will go with high end 7.1 sound systems that will sound better BUT.... cost much much more. Can use analog audio cord that comes with unit, or digital optical cable as mentioned in many reviews.
Summary: I took a little risk with this purchase because I was aware of the problems reported with the LED lights. I hoped that this was a relatively old problem that had been addressed by now. So far the Vizio soundbar has performed flawlessly. The sound is excellent and the system is small, easy to set up and unobtrusive. I was confused for a moment because of an error in the Quick Start Guide.
