Reviews and Problems with Boston Acoustics TVee Model 25
Showing 1-7 of 7
Worked well for the 15 months it lasted
1 May 2014
Summary: Overview: I'd read some less-than-stellar reviews, but opted to buy this at an extreme discount during a clearance sale. Even so, I expected it to last at least three or four years, but the subwoofer died after 15 months.
Summary: Hooked this up to a Samsung plasma that is not wall mounted. The TVee soundbar speaker sounded about 20% better than the TV speakers. That part was OK. The instant I powered it on though it killed the wifi for my blu-ray player and laptop. Powered the speaker off and the wifi network came back..
Summary: I didn't buy this from Amazon, but thought I would share my review with you anyway. Sound is awesome when it's working. I have it connected using the supplied optical cable to my Panasonic Smart Viera TV.
Summary: I'll keep it short and sweet. It has great sound and solid bass. However, if you stream Netflix on a wireless network, you must shut off the soundbar. Additionally, laptops and other devices are effected, but at least those can move away. Netflix generally cannot.
Summary: Picked this out for my mother who finally agreed to update her tv and sound system. Did side by side comparisons of a number of sound bar setups at my local Best Buy. The only other system that sounded as good was a Polk for twice the price. The similarly priced Polk didn't even come close.
Summary: Just as others have posted, my unit came with a stupid sticker on the grill that completely destroyed the grill as I tried to remove it! rather than returning the unit I just called BA and they were aware of the problem and agreed to send me another grill no questions asked.
Summary: I will review the second one I received as the first one had a faulty TOSLINK connector in the back and had to be exchanged. The main unit connected easily to the TVs' (an LG LW5600-series tv) digital optical audio out via the included TOSLINK cable and to the included DC power supply.
