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: 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: not a bad effort and better than Toshiba, Sony, Panasonic and the rest of them for one thing. It at least has 1/2 of what is needed for a custom installation - discrete source buttons. But Power on and off is NOT discrete so it is still kind of a bust. Here we are in 2012 and they can't even take into account you will be using the device with a universal remote control or control system. No doubt as a result of "race to the bottom" pricing. But then...
Summary: THIS SOUNDBAR WAS NOT WHAT I THOUGHT IT WOULD SOUND LIKE. JUST A HEADS UP TO ANYONE THINKING OF BUYING THIS PRODUCT. I WOULD STAY AWAY. MY SPEAKERS ON MY FLAT SCREEN TV SOUNDED BETTER. I KEPT IT FOR A FEW DAYS THAN RETURNED IT. THUMBS DOWN>>!
