Summary: Nice sound bar for sony xbr65x850c but sometimes if nothing playing on the tv for 15-20 mins, the sound bar goes on standby and TV switches the audio to built-in speakers. Then I manually have to change it back to external speakers, no big deal but worth mentioning.

Summary: Initially I was very disappointed with the sound volume/quality. Takes about 30 minutes to figure it out, but once you play around with the settings, you'll get the "theater" sound you're expecting.
Summary: Although a bit more expensive than I had hoped, I am very happy with this purchase. Hooked up to Sony Bravia TV and Blue Ray, the system could not have been easier to set up. Simply plugged everything in, made 3 cable connections, and it automatically synced itself to the subwoofer and components.
Summary: Bought this as a replacement for a Samsung 5.1 system and love it. The only downfall is the ARC setting being somewhat wonky with my Panasonic plasma TV, otherwise it's great. The different sound modes (Gaming, TV, Music, etc.) fit in perfectly depending on what you are doing.

Summary: I was dumbfounded hooking this up to my SHARP smart tv. I figured since it had HDMI outlets as well as my tv, I'd hook it up that way. Needless to say it didn't work and I used the ARC cord that came with it and it works perfectly.
Summary: Great soundbar, only two issues, one is that even though I have it attached t the ARC HDMI on my TV, sometime it does not turn on with the TV and I have to manually turn it on and the sub, does not seem as powerful and feels lost in the soundbar bass itself.
Summary: I like this sound bar a lot. The low profile fits my table stand TV (although I did buy a small 1/2" shelf from Lowes to raise the TV a bit to get clear line of sight for the remote). The wireless subwoofer is fine for my needs.

Summary: Excellent value and produces a nice quality in clarity and volume. The subwoofer is adequate to help round out the auditory experience. Definitely a million times better than sound from just the TV alone. You miss it if it isn't on. Considering a second unit for another TV.
Summary: Easy to set-up with very good sound quality. This was my main holiday present to myself. Researched a variety of brands and price/quality levels and chose this Sony due to price and modest subwoofer size.
