Summary: We were tired of having to ask that question whenever we watched shows on our flat screen TV. This adaptable sound-bar system gives you "the rest of the story" back, filling in the bass more richly. The price was quite reasonable considering all that the system delivers.
Summary: This set is amazing. I have a 60'' TV and I feel like I'm in a movie theater. I often find myself turning it up too high and then my dog goes bonkers. This thing has some serious bass. Panasonic makes some great products. Stay away from Samsung.
Summary: I bought this as a gift for my parents. They have a Panasonic TV and not a lot of tech knowledge. This works flawlessly with their setup, and they don't have to think about it. When connected to a Panasonic VIERAlink television, once you've got it properly configured, the unit powers up when you turn on the television, and powers down when you turn it off. The TV is all you need, and the volume button that used to control the TV now controls the sound system.
Summary: This is my first venture into external speaker, and being in a small apartment I don't want to be one of those people with some crazy setup that would give people the desire to murder me every night I watch the tube. I have a Panasonic tv and a Panasonic blu-ray, so that's a major reason why I bought this. I could care less usually if I have mixed and match parts, but the fact that everything works and easily so made it a no brainer.
Summary: I have a Panasonic Viera TV and this Soundbar was incredibly easy to set up - 15 minutes or so. The Audio Return Channel allows the TV to turn on the Soundbar, so I have not even needed the remote since day one. The sound is a big improvement over the TV speakers. Dialogue is easier to understand and the bass really adds to movies. Very happy with this purchase and would highly recommend, especially if you own a Viera TV with Viera Link.
Summary: Think twice about how two very thin speakers and a sub are going to fill the sound stage. I bought this to improve the sound of the TV in my small bedroom in my small apartment. The price looked good, the form factor offered different mounting options, and Panasonic is a brand I am inclined to trust. It's got to be pretty decent, right? Wrong! It only took a few nights of use to decide that this device was definitely not intended for my use case.
Summary: It was easy to set up and easy to operate. I'm not an audio buff so the sound is good. The only con would be since my hearing isn't what it used to be, I thought it would get louder. Otherwise, nice item for the price and sound.
Summary: I bought these because the price point couldn't be ignored and it they vieralink to my Panasonic plasma GT50. Audio is a big improvement over the built in tv speakers and the option to go left and right or soundbar is a great feature! I love that the tv defaults to these speakers and i don't have to pick up a remote to change input. My only complaint is the speaker wires are white which makes them difficult to hide on my cherry wood cabinets.
Summary: This is perfect for my apartment. Good bass and good midrange' of course its not true surround but for the price and quality it can,t be beat !! Also, I have a 55 plasma Panasonic so they sync with the remotes automatically, I also have a Panasonic 3d blue-ray player that completes the set.
