Summary: I like this sound bar and really like the wireless sub woofer it really adds bass to your system. I use the with my Panasonic VIERA TC-P42G25 42-Inch 1080p Plasma HDTV. the sound is so much better that just the stock speakers.
Summary: This meets my needs. I wanted a minimal amount of wiring so that's why I chose the wireless speaker and the HDMI connection. Occassionally the speaker will not come off from "Mute" probably due to an HDMI signalling issue, but turning the bar off and on restores the sound.
Summary: I'm sitting here typing this review as my tv is silent. I was watching a dvd and the sound went out....again. I had misplaced the itty bitty remote long ago, so the only way to get the sound back is to get up and turn the power off on the sound bar and turn it on again.
Summary: Arrived early and was exactly as described. Was a bit concerned about purchasing refurbished product but $199 price point vs. $350+ for brand new was selling point. Very confusing if other similar items would work with my Panasonic plasma TV with Viera Link, Panasonic Blu Ray DVD player and Direct...
Summary: was looking in particular for a Panasonic soundbar to round out the same plasma and BR so they all talked to one another. had no desire for more remotes. Bought this just last week, one Optical cable in, one HDMI in and off we went.
Summary: I bought this unit only because it would match my Panasonic plasma. From a performance perspective, it is mediocre at best. The subwoofer is boomy (one note bass)and the sound bar lacks any refinement whatsoever. What do you expect for the price?
Viera Link: Perfect integration with Panasonic TC-P42G25, easy setup
30 July 2011
Summary: I got the package deal from Amazon and got this free with Panasonic TC-P42G25 plasma. Viera Link meant an easy integration of this soundbar with the TV, and it works perfectly for me. You can set it up such that, whenever the TV is turned on/off, the soundbar automatically turns on/off.

Summary: Bought the Viera Cast 50" plasma HDTV (TC-P50G25)and got a bundle deal from Amazon for this 2.1 soundbar. I have been on the telephone and online Technical Support Chat with Panasonic 5 times.
Summary: Great system! Not as hard to set up as I read in the reviews though it did help to have two people. We had to purchase an optical cable and mounting kit for installation on our panasonic tv. Everything works the way we hoped it would.
