Summary: At first I was a little skeptical since this was so small. However, the sound that comes out is GREAT! It actually sounds better than my previous home theatre system with the big sub-woofer and the 5 speakers. I would recommend this product to anyone. It takes up a lot less room and sounds better.
Summary: So far, I have absolutely no complaints about the product. This is the second Philips DVD player that I've had recently and I like them both. We wanted a soundbar system that would give us better sound quality than the built-in TV speakers, but we don't need a big component system. We have small children, so we can't turn our sound way up while they are sleeping. This system is very easy to set up and works as advertised.
Summary: It is a good sound bar with inbuild DVD player. The USB does not detect my portable hard disk, so USB is not of much use. The number of inputs should have been more, it has just one optical, one analog audio input. Rest all is fine, was easy to assemble, good sound, compact, no wire hassles. Need to observe on integrated sub-woofer yet.
Summary: I've been eyeing a more expensive Bose home theater system first, but then decided to go with this Phillips soundbar - I am glad I did! The results have exceeded all my expectations. I've had it for about a month and could not be happier. Not only does it add surround sound experience to all my favorite DVD's and TV programs, but it also has a radio and an IPod dock. The sound is superb, actually better than Bose!!! And the price is 3 times lower than Bose.
Summary: Does exactly what I wanted. With the built in FM radio and DVD/CD player no need for the old boom box or DVD player. Weighing so little and having to put it together (simply connect 3 pieces) I was skeptical about it having enough bass. Wrong. Its perfect for listening to music. As far as simulating surround sound, not so great, but throws sound around the room. 10 times better than the LCD TV speakers on my 37 inch TV.
Summary: IF YOUR LOOKING FOR A TOP OF THE LINE SOUND SYSTEM, THEN KEEP LOOKING. bUT IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AN INEXPENSIVE, EASY WAY TO IMPROVE THE SOUND ON YOUR TV THEN YOU FOUND IT. i LOVE THE BUILT IN FM RADIO AND DVD PLAYER. CANT BEAT IT FOR THE PRICE.
