Summary: I bought a few months ago (for the world cup) at Best Buy and since day one it was cutting or just getting disconnected all together. I eventually issued a warranty claim and all they did was send me a cd to update the system.
Summary: Highly recommend not purchasing this, and finding a different sound bar. The good: the sound quality is excellent, no qualms with the sound at all. I would imagine it can hold its own against most sound bars.
Summary: Great quality and finish with a much needed improvement over the past model. A bit of a lag between the synced voices and actors lips when passed through the sound bar via HDMI, not sure if it was my setup issue or the lag though.
Summary: We have been very happy with our B&W Panorama 2 which we've had for several months now. It set up and ran perfectly out of the box and though I find the remote a little fiddly, but have gotten used to it.
Summary: The Good ! B & W sound quality is evident. Forget the price buy it for the sound, it is very clean at low and high volumes and sounds better than most other products on the market. The Panorama 2 is an attractive addition to the entertainment center.
Summary: My husband purchased this sound bar for our new media room. Although beautiful, it never worked. The sound kept cutting out and we would have to start the entire system over again only to have the sound cut out again. We returned it and the second started doing the same thing after just 5 weeks.
Summary: I purchased this sound bar in December. Sound was decent, required constant tuning. One month later sound board required replacing. Just had it re-installed and 48 hours later it isn't getting sound from the middle channel.
