Summary: I realize this was reconditioned but looks like it sustained a lot of abuse as it has scratches all over and arrived with no instructions of any kind and not cannot get the remote to work and has to be turned off and on manually.
Summary: I WAS NOT EXPECTING THE QUALITY SOUND THIS SOUND BAR PUTS OUT. I CAME FROM A TRADITIONAL 5 SPEAKER SYSTEM THAT I AM SURE WE ALL HAVE HAD, AND I WAS A LITTLE HESITANT GOING TO A SOUND BAR, BUT I WANTED THE CONVENIENCE AND LOOK OF VERY FEW WIRES.
Summary: The sound bar sounds fine. But the only reason I've come to write a review is to mention that the remote quit working EXACTLY 1 year after I purchased it. I've contacted Vizio and they had me do a reset on the remote and replace the batteries.
Summary: Installing this unit gave better clarity and more sound quality options than are available with the normal TV. I can understand most of the speech. All of it would be clear if the program producers weren't so fond of superimposing odd music over a lot of the spoken word.
Summary: Amazing sound for the price! Has two HDMI inputs and an HDMI ARC output. Also accepts optical input. The remote is simple and easy to use. The sound bar automatically powers off on its own with no option to change this, however all you need to do is press the volume buttons (up or down) to turn it...
Summary: I have had this product for long enough now I would say I can make a fair review on it. It sounds great. Much better than my TV's speakers. Bass is good enough for me. I mostly watch movies and football / basketball games. Easy set up is nice as well.
Summary: New flat screen TV's have killer clear digital pictures. The design of the TV leaves little room for good speakers. This is where the sound bar comes in. They are small, fit in with the TV, and provide great sound. I can tell if someone has the TV sound on and sound bar off.
Summary: Bottom line: this is a great sound bar and sub combination. Great output, sub volume can be tapered, and quality isn't severely diminished by the wireless feature. Just don't use the sound stabilization option!
You know, I looked all over the country and the only ones available were refurbs. Amazon had none and didn't expect to get any.

Summary: Low and behold, two new ones arrived at Amazon. Out of nowhere! Amazing! Obviously, I was very suspicious and ordered anyway. Oddly, the sound on the sound bar fads in and out, and out of the package I saw finger prints on what was a "new" soundbar.
Summary: I used this soundbar happily for 11 months, and it performed wonderfully. However, 2 weeks before the warranty expired, the subwoofer suddenly stopped working. After contacting VIZIO, and presenting them with my proof of purchase, I was told they can't repair it, and cannot replace it because they...
