Summary: I have had this thing for a year, and the performance of the (cable) remote control with the soundabar is becoming intolerable. It was all right at first. I now press on it with my thumb for the longest time, and finally, the sound goes either way up or way down. I am sick of this, and wish I had a different soundbar. An earlier model works well.
Summary: Highly recommend this soundbar, sound is very impressive for the size. I didn't think the sub would put out too well for the size but it proved me wrong. Pairing my cable remote to this was easy as well. I actually am running mine with my 67 inch LED/DLP type TV not with a wall mounted type TV because the speakers in my tv sounded about as bad as the new style LED TV's. This was the best upgrade for the money and you would almost think it was a full surround set up.
Summary: Subwoofer has intermittent sound and pops. Soundbar sounds okay. As other reviewers have written, the quality of the product is very hit or miss. Specifically with the subwoofer. Unlike others, mine did not work from day 1.
Summary: Purchased this POS to replace the previous POS because the wife likes the compact package and no need for an extra remote. This unit is worse than the model it replaced, $200+ worth of dumpster fodder.
Summary: Pros: Price, Easy Connection and Setup Cons: Just about everything else. Slightly better (read richer, more bass) than built in TV speakers. Subwoofer looses connection and you must cycle the power to restore connection. Ambient sounds often overshadow dialogue necessitating overly loud average volume levels. Within a few months it stopped responding to the remote.
Summary: What a difference this soundbar makes for television use! It is like being in a theater! I have also hooked up my iPod to it and the sound is spectacular! What is nice is how easy it is to hook up. It programs to my remote for my satellite TV so I only need one remote for all. I would highly recommend this product if you want an easy way to add to your listening pleasure.
