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. Solved the issue by purchasing the Mediabridge 3 Port High Speed HDMI Switch. This is fully supported by Logitek Harmony remotes so just added this device and all works perfectly.
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. Now I can control the video playback on the PS3 with the Panny remote as well, so I don't have to use the PS3 remote to watch movies. The wireless sub is also very convenient.
Summary: I purchased this system with assurances from Panasonic that it would turn off and on with my Viera TV and would change volume with the tv so that the sound system remote would not be required. That was not true. The system will not come on when you turn the tv on even when connected to the HDMI (ARC) port. Do not make the mistake of believing what Panasonic representatives tell you. In my experience, they will say that it will do things that it will not do.
Summary: Pros: Looks great (glossy, shiny, appropriate size), great sound for 2.1, setup options (I went with the split vertical drilled to the wall) and reasonably priced. The wireless subwoofer is a great feature as well. Cons: I was unable to hide the speaker wires. Perhaps it could be done, but would take some wall drilling and painting. Unfortunately, having these wires in plain view somewhat negates the aesthetics of the speakers.
Summary: Sound quality is quite good for the product's price and size, but the lack of display and a normal remote made unusable for me. The included remote is not only small in size, but in power as well, needs to be close to the device. Additionally, the device is not supported by my AR universal remote. Not able to use a remote normally was a deal breaker. I returned the unit. I am quite satisfied with the transaction, Amazon refunded the whole amount promptly.
Summary: For the price, I expected a much better sound. For example, the Sony HTCT260 sound bar is cheaper but has a much better sound and is much easier in assembly. For this bar, I did like how it looks but assembly was more difficult that it should have been (awful design for the stands). Also, material on the speakers looks very light and fragile and so you get the feeling that it just cannot support deeper sound.
Summary: I actually considered returning this but didnt for a few reason. The way this thing is packed your never gonna get it back in the box the way you found it so returns are difficult. Putting it together was another task I wasn't pleased with. I gave up putting the sattelites on their stands and used the bar configuration only to find it will block the IR receiver on most TVs, unless you hang your tv. As for the sound I have mixed feelings about that.
Summary: It's not bad and gives ok sound. The mid-range is a weak and to be honest it doesn't sound a whole lot better than the stock TV sound... To many parts to pack up and send back... oh well, it is better than the TV sound...
Summary: The sound produced by this system is ok. It is still much much better then plasma TV speakers. I compared this soundbar to my 12-year old setup which consists of Sony receiver DE-935 and two front speakers Acoustic research AR226PS and a central speaker AR 4C, no subwoofer. The sound was still better with my old system even at a low volume. The sound from the soundbar was flat, although I was impressed with the subwoofer that came with the soundbar.
