Summary: The sound bar and woofer sound very good. The woofer adds good low end. This system is installed in a room without carpeting and very high vaulted ceiling, so I wasn't expecting a miracle, just an improvement over the original tv speakers. This system did provide that. On the negative side is the remote. Where to start??? It's too small and delicate. The controls are impossible to read (once you get use to it you can use the controls by feeling where each button is.
Summary: I love it. It is perfect for my tv and the sound is super for not only my tv but also for my dvd/vhs player For someone who is looking for a soundbar to make the speakers be in front of the tv;is its super and I would highly recommend it It is hooked for a ipod or ipad but I do not have those so cannot speak in regards to those.

Summary: After researching sound bars I decided to go with the Haier.... good looking, slim, wireless sub....sounded good. For a budget sound bar, performance was appropriate. After 5 months, the HDMI input #1 stopped working, preventing transmission of my cable signal to my TV. I purchased it on Nov 15, 2012 and my return option expired on Jan 31... This is the first negative review I've written.
Summary: My main reasoning for buying the Haier SBEV40-SLIM was to get closer to a "theater" sound while watching my 46" LED TV. I didn't want to go through the hassle of setting-up a 5 to 6 speaker surround system so, I thought this would be a good compromise. To my relief I was not disappointed!
Summary: So far product has functioned well and I like the sound it provides, much better than the TV speakers. One little feature they good have provided is a volume control on the sub-woofer. As usual, ordering and shipping with Amazon was efficient and prompt.
Summary: this sound bar is excellent!! the sub-woofer pairs perfectly with the sound bar. the only cons are that you are unable to adjust the level of the subwoofer and after 6 months the diaphragm on the sub woofer went out,.. but haier is going to replace it!
Summary: Use this in our bedroom even though our Vizio 32" puts out decent sound. The Vizio 32" sound bar was just horrible. Sound quality wasn't very good and it would tend to go mute for several minutes for no apparent reason. Although this is a bit larger than the Vizio it fits our cabinet and the wireless woofer is an added bonus. The only negative is the remote control unit.
