Summary: This sound bar is just perfect for me. I bought this speaker because I needed better sound from my flat panel TV, and now its just right. I like its low profile design and included sub. I haven't tried many other sound bars, but to me this an awesome speaker.
I think it's worth it as long as you remember it's cheap.

Summary: I use this to sit under a 24" Samsung TV which sits on my desk and whose sound is very tinny. This adds some much-needed bass but, if anything, too much bass. It's a little boomy. The best sound comes from a mixture of the tinny TV speakers and the boomy Maxell SSB-1.
Better than nothing, but don't expect to be blown away

Summary: At this point it is hard to find a new one, since most of them available are refurbished. The design is good, the setup is easy, but the sound is decent at best. There is a bass mode which adds a LOT of bass including high pitch bass which you don't want, so you will have to lower the bass on your...
Summary: This is an absolutely amazing soundbar for the price. It would still be amazing if it cost $100-$150 more.I hooked one up to a bedroom TV and it sounded about 500% better than the speakers on the flatscreen it was connected to. It also connects to your tv very easily.
Summary: I like the low profile form of this sound bar as I installed it directly in front of my 47 inch TV, and considering its small size, it provides far superior audio than the TV's anemic, built-in speakers.
Summary: If your looking for something small and sleek this is for you! The sound quality is decent, but the built in sub-woofer does add a plus. I did notice tho if it is turned up to loud the sub-woofer intends to rattle and throws off the sound.
Summary: bass is a surprise. it is very good. treble is muffled and cannot be corrected. cannot play with tv sound at same time because you get an echo. the remote sucks! hardly ever works. i am on the fence as to whether i would buy it again. bass might make it worth while.
Purchased here on eBay for $50, I feel like it was a great value.

Summary: For a lower end sound bar, this maxell surpassed my expectations. I purchsed for my master bedroom. It's not over powering but it's much clearer than the speakers on the flat panel. I sometimes felt like I had a hard time understanding all of the words on my Samsung 52".
