Summary: The Philips HTL5120's distinctive design, low price, and immersive sound make it a tempting budget sound bar pick, although its sound quality isn't a good match for purists.
Pros: The Philips HTL5120 is a particularly stylish sound bar with a sleek, winglike design. Its connectivity is a cut above the rest, with two HDMI inputs, two digital inputs, and built-in Bluetooth. And its virtual surround-sound processing is very good, creating the impression of a much larger system than this actually is.
Cons: While the sound is immersive, the overall sound quality isn't as good as you get from similarly priced systems. And the included remote has a confusing button layout that's tough to get used to.
