Bassy & loud enough with an additional "ooh" factor
Sugarfix "Sugarfix", Amazon

Summary: I'd looked a a number of soundbars, mostly 2.1 and this appealed to me from the point of view of the surround and it doesn't disappoint. Having a 4 year old who likes to lift things up and a wife who likes things out of the way, the idea of having surround speakers which sit in the ends of the bar, charging up ready for use is great. When you come to use them however, it's even better.
Summary: following a firmware update, performs spectacularly well, better than my former high end separates. Totally immersive, delivers centre dialogue and audio material clearly and concisely. Excellent all round.
For excellent sound with the ability to have surround sound when you want it with no wires.

Summary: I have always preferred surround sound but objected to the wiring everywhere and the precise location of speakers. With this system you detach the surround speakers only when you want to and position them where best suits you. When coupled to the main speaker and charging the sound (with the wireless sub woofer) is excellent (as it is on surround). The wireless sub woofer works perfectly.
Summary: This is an amazing soundbar. The set-up is fairly easy and straightforward (having a tv with HDMI ARC is preferable but there are other connections, e.g. optical, coaxial, etc) and the sound quality is vastly better than just the tv on it's own. Connecting your mobile or mp3 via bluetooth couldn't be simpler. For what I paid for this item I am hugely impressed.
Summary: Amazing all round sound for TV, DVD & CD Full range quite ethereal. Compared it to market leaders of similar price and it leaves them all standing. More people should sell Philips products I have the 50" Ambilight TV and it took months to find it. The soundbar matches the TV and provides an overall aesthetic appeal in addition.
Summary: This soundbar has received rave reviews. However the reviews on Amazon really worried me, but I can confirm that I've had no problems with plugs or connections, and it's a great bit of kit. Inside the box I got both Continental power plugs and UK power plugs so no issues there. Depending on how you want to connect the soundbar, you'll need to supply the right cables yourself. I had a spare HDMI cable and I'm using the Audio Return Channel (ARC) facility on my TV.
Summary: This was my first soundbar, and I've got to say that I'm really disappointed with this product. In theory it sounded perfect - surround sound, no wires, plug and play, wonderful reviews. Just what I was looking for, my hopes were really high (sigh). On arrival, my first thoughts were that it's very pretty (though long), and certainly had the Oooo! factor. But then come the irritations.
