Summary: Was working fine for about 1 year and now that warranty has run out, subwoofer is dead. Started one day with loud screech, then started working. Shortly after, turned on and it sounded like it was coughing. Now there is no sound from the woofer. LG customer service is useless.
Summary: "refurbished"? I think not. Doesn't work properly -- cuts out, and doesn't often cut back in, or it cuts back in after 30 seconds, OR it makes loud popping sounds. I suspect that this TechGadget firm merely repackages returns without much (or any) testing.
Summary: I purchaeed this sound bar to use with my LG Smart TV because of the linking feature. I assumed that the link would allow use of my Smart control for the sound bar, but it does not. Now I have to use the sound bar control for just the volume. There are lots of pointless buttons.
Summary: I own an LG television so I thought it would be a good idea to purchase the LG Soundbar so get some cross compatibility... namely having the 2 products sync up so I wouldn't need to use an additional remote control.
Summary: Replaced my old tube tv with LED. New tv speakers lacked quality sound so I looked for a sound bar and tried this one. I will keep trying. Poor sound quality out of the sound bar. Sub was distorted, and lacked deep base. Old Sony tube had better sound than this. Not worth 200.00.
Summary: EDIT: 9/2/2013. I am going to leave my original review under this one. The unit has become more of a hassle than it is worth. I have decided to ship it back to Amazon. What happens is that I will power on the unit, first time: the display comes on but no sound.
Summary: This would have been a good unit to increase the volume of my HDTV sound. However, it only has a digital output cable. My HDTV does not have a connection for this cable. I looked at other reviews online to see if others had issues with setup.
Summary: Just bought it today. It only has options for optical input. My TV and DVR don't have optical outputs so I cannot hook-up the LG soundbar. Called their customer support line and got a customer service rep in another country with very poor English and a thick accent.
Excerpt: Sound bar is fine however, it comes fitted with two pin plugs, useless for the UK without adapters. Therefore the product cannot be used straight out of the box. This should have been made clear before the transaction took place.
