Summary: I thought the sound was really strong & crisp. I reviewed this product in a number of ways. Connected to my Panasonic Viera TV for the movie experience was the first way. The sound was amazing and actually sounded like there was a surround sound system in the room. The bass was really solid and provided great effect for the movie - Amazing Spiderman. The second way was the bluetooth technology. I linked it with my iPhone and played various playlists/genres of music.
Pros: Inexpensive, Easy to use, Durable, Exceeded expectations, Convenient, easy set up
Summary: This was the first product that I have used from Panasonic in the audio arena. Box Opening - I found that the amount of parts that came with the actual product were perfect for putting this item on a wall or standing it up in a spot underneath your TV (or whatever your situation is). I would say that the one item that was missing, and it was kind of a bummer, was that it did not include an Optical Wire or AV (I/O) Cable.
Pros: Inexpensive, Compact, Easy to use, Convenient
Cons: Did not meet expectations, Poor quality, lack of optical cable.
Summary: Let me start off by saying that I have been a Panasonic fan for years. I have three of their plasma tv's , and I don't think any other brand can come close in that department, so thus enters the SC-HTB70. I ordered this to compliment a '50 TV in a small room (approximately 10x10). Upon opening the box, naturally the first thing I did was locate the instructions. Much to my dismay, the instruction manual was terrible!
Loud and clear sound with hassle-free installation

Summary: Nowadays most HVTVs come with relatively low power sound, that’s because TVs are so thin that there just no space left for a good speakers. The experience of watching a good movie and missing the most of its sound glory is not the best. So consumers get to decide whether they want a home theater surround-sound system or not, and most decide they don’t due to the budget issues and concerns if they would be able to hook everything up together.
Summary: This product provides an in home theater-like experience-- the sound comes at you no matter where you are in the room. The quality of the sound is impeccable. Another amazing feature is the blue tooth capability-- I am now able to listen to music from any blue tooth capable device in my home, my phone and my computer to name a few! It is also slim and sleek-- it fits comfortably under the T.V. and blends in almost unnoticeably.
Pros: Inexpensive, Compact, Easy to use, Durable, Exceeded expectations, Convenient
Summary: initial sound quality from TV was not what I expected. However more I listen and especially the Bluetooth with my phone (Pandora), sound is very good. Very impressed with ease of Bluetooth connectivity and sound quality.
Summary: Read the PC Review on this item. Sound quality was not what I expected. Different modes (stdium, cinema, standard, stereo) all sound "tingy" except in stereo mode. I know it said it has built in subwoofer, but can not hear/feel the subwoofer.
Summary: First off, I would give this sound bar 5 stars based on the price I paid, not MSRP. Like some reviewers I found the instructions a little complicated, but was able to get it up and running in less than 5 minutes. YOU WILL NEED OPTICAL (what I used) OR DIGITAL CABLE for hook-up. As I stated in the review summary this unit DOES NOT have HDMI hook-up. The IR BLASTER is a JOKE! It only works with Panasonic TV???
Pros: Great improvement over TV speakers
Cons: BEST BUY's inaccurate product description (NO HDMI)
Summary: I was looking for a sound bar that can replace or compensate 42" LCD TV speakers, could not be happier that I selected this sound bar. Price is reasonable, sound quality is great that can fill a small room. Additional functionality with Bluetooth is as great, I can connect my phone and hear a great sound without wire. It is very simple to setup and work straight out the box. Please note it does not come with any connecting wire.
Pros: Functionality, appearence, and sound quality
Summary: I bought this product at Best Buy. It worked great for less than a month but stopped working. Took it back to the store and exchanged it for a new one. It did the same thing: worked good for about a month and then no sound again! Took it back to Best Buy again for a refund which they wouldn't give me. What a rip off! DO NOT BUY THIS PIECE OF JUNK.
