Summary: Set this up and within a few days it quit working, power shut down and couldn't turn it back on! It simply quit! Thankfully the seller accepted its return. Also, it's bulky and heavy for its intended purpose as compared to most other sound bars.
Good sound, bad remote! Does not use standard code.

Summary: I wish someone had written this before I bought this. The good: It sounds great compared to the TV speakers. It does what I wanted which was to not sit with the TV remote adjusting the volume when people were talking, for commercials, etc. The bad: It doesn't work with universal remotes.
Summary: First I was amazed this unit was still available. I've had one for several years and it just died. I was expecting to wait 10 or more days and I think I got it in 3. Very well packaged and works great. You dont know how much you miss it till you have to go back to TV speakers.
Summary: Although our flat screen had built-in speakers - it was always lacking. We tried using the stereo but, the output from the TV was optical ... now we have sound for DVD's and TV programs. Yay !!
Summary: The sound bar had the A/V inputs that we needed for our new TV to hook up to our older DVD player, Non HD cable box and VCR. The size was a bit overwhelming. Based on the descriptions people said it could be placed in front of the TV or mounted on the wall.
Summary: The sound was great while it lasted. Yes it is big and bulky, but the sound was great for my TV and MP3 player. A week ago, it would just not power on. When turning the unit on, there was a brief, dim blink of red led, then nothing. I am disappointed in the longevity.
Summary: Nice sound machine. Good spatial fit. However, companies like Microsoft Movies and Chrome Play and Flixster do not, I repeat, do not stream "Dolby." I do receive 5.1 channels, the fact of the matter is that it is not in Dolby. Even the Dolby website test screen does not stream "Dolby.
