Summary: If all you want is good sound and simple set up, this is for you. BUT for the cost, they should have given it a DVD player that would play jpegs, avi files and all the rest like my $25 JVC one does. It kicked out my 40 Year Old Virgin DVD the day I bought the system, and is very select about what DVD's, and yes, they are all purchased in the good old USA, that it decides to play.
Summary: This is an easy system to set up. So what? What is there to it? I rate it equivalent to a set of Harmon Kardon Soundstick II's. For $119, I'll take the H/K's and buy three or four sets. The Bose System offers a built in Hard Drive to store your music on MPEG files, but doesn't offer a good way to organize your music. For this kind of money, buy a 17" iMac G5 and a set of Sound Stick II's and you will be a whole lot happier.
Summary: I ended up getting the Bose system the same day I spent $2500 on a new HDTV, with the idea that I would have the best sound and look avaliable...In the store the system sounded great! The demo was playing Lord of the Rings...but when I got home, listening to regular movies or tv there is no surround sound about it...The pros are the size and looks. I like the fact that my living room doesn't have a large shelf system or 5 or 6 speakers arranged all over the place.
