Summary: Couldn't be happier with this system. I needed a boost for the 50 inch TV in the bedroom but didn't want to spend a mint for another system like I have in my den. This unit was a breeze to set up and gives me all the performance I need in my small bedroom.
Good HDMI-CEC support; unimportant to most, important to me.

Summary: I purchased this Panasonic Soundbar in June of 2013. At the time, my requirements were: - Good sound (can't afford GREAT sound) - Wireless Subwoofer - HDMI input and good HDMI-CEC support - Bluetooth support In my search, I tested the Toshiba SBX4250 and the Samsung HW-F450 from my local Costco.
Finally! A compact Sound System for home cinema sound!

Summary: I've tried more than one sound bar, and was always disappointed with the sound. I purchased this hoping that the wireless subwoofer would make a difference and WOW, did it. I have been using this for several months and it has made watching both movies and television much more enjoyable, with home...
Summary: I chose this item primarily because the layout of my living room is simply not conducive to a 5.1 or 7.1 full surround system (without going full wireless, which is incredibly expensive) but I wanted to upgrade from my new TV's subpar built-in speakers.
Summary: Overall this is a good unit, great for the price. The sound is excellent, but there's a few clunky things with the interface that bother me. First, I have a blu-ray player and a DirecTV receiver both hooked up to this unit using HDMI.
Summary: Sound wise this is perfect if you do not want (or can) to go to a 5.1 surround sound. The main issue I had was that it does have two HDMI inputs but I could only get the audio (through the hdmi cable) to work on one of them. (Aux 1). Why it would not work on Aux 2 is unknown.
Summary: My TV sits on a stand, over my fireplace. Putting a soundbar in, not an option-- it covers the sensor for the TV remote. I'd have good sound, but I'd be back in the 70's trying to change channels. Other 2.1 systems (like Bose)-- the sub woofer is connected to the speakers.
Summary: After doing some research and listening to some similar systems in the same price range, I figured I would try this one. I made sure I had an available ARC HDMI port on my 2 year old Panasonic 42" plasma TV before purchasing this, since I definitely didn't want to add another remote to my mix.
Summary: Bought this brand to work with Panny tv. Sound is just OK, not great but not bad. Works very easily with Panny remote. Set up was a breeze. Also got Bluetooth connected quite easily with ipods, android tablets, and various phones. Connected PS3 to unit, then unit out to ARC connection on tv.
