Summary: No Stars!!! My Bose 321 system is also not playing dads at all, new or old. It wasn't used that often, certainly nowhere near my Sony blue ray player. Tried every remedy recommended to try to clear the "unsupported format" error that shows up. So irritating. I will never buy Bose again.
Summary: Ok so first listen to what most say about the player stops playing DVDs. I took mine to the Bose shop for the upgrade. Didn't work. Needs a new sensor which cost nearly as much as the system. Looks good but never sounded great.
Summary: This product doesn't belong on the market. The reasons why owners won't fess up to all of the problems that they are having with the DVD player is that: 1) they are incredibly embarrassed to be swindled by the marketing 2) they don't want to destroy the resale value until they've unloaded theirs...
cant do hd audio, isnt close to real surround sound

Summary: first of all the inputs are extremely limited. not to mention there isn't hdmi so you can't do HD audio signals just simple dolby with a low bitrate for the money it costs, most people who buy it probably have an expensive television as well as possibly blu ray.
Summary: Sound is good, but the dvd player is the worst machine ever. My 36 dollar dvd player actually out performs this one by a long shot. It won't open or close 99 percent of the time and then when it does, cannot read disc.
Summary: After comparing the 3.2.1 Bose system with their 30 day money back guarantee to my neighbors system (Paradigm Speakers and Pioneer receiver). It went back in the box and back to the store. His system was almost identical in cost, and light years better.
Summary: Bought this system back in December 2005. Two weeks later the center unit started skipping on any DVDs or CDs. Sometimes it just turned itself off while trying to read a DVD. I brought it back to a retail store for exchanging. This "exact" same problem did happen to the replacement too.
Summary: Their money-back policy. My neighbor bought one of their pseudo-surround systems and exercised such policy within a week, much helped by coming over to my house and listening to a REAL home theater system, which actually cost a couple hundred less.
