Summary: I've owned this unit for several years now, I just now realized that I hadn't reviewed it. The unit quit working within the first year and we were able to get a replacement no charge from the company. With in months of setting up the 2nd unit, the fan (I guess) started being so loud that you can hear it over the sound of the program. Very aggravating. I would not buy this unit again.
Summary: I bought this product in september of 2011 and it worked great until today. The sound was the best part and pretty good for the price. Dvd player is subpar. Lacks options and the menu is poorly designed. It has an exhaust fan that is noisy and can get quite annoying. I enjoyed having surround sound in my dorm room but today, I powered off the system and a couple minutes later I heard a loud bang.
Summary: I purchased this as a cheap replacement for a $100 RCA that stopped working. I wasn't expecting much considering the price. I was AMAZED at the sound that comes from this unit! It works GREAT, and sounds MUCH better than the one it replaced even when new. Considering the price of this unit, I believe it is one of the best purchases of electronics I have ever made. This is a quality unit that works as good as many that are much more expensive.
Summary: I have had this system for about 2 years and it has never had so much as a hiccup...great sound and great opperation with my TV and PS3, and also great sound for music from the AM/FM radio, and CDs. I have no complaints at all. Would highly recommend.
DVD Player stopped working as soon as warranty ran out

Summary: So, I bought this home theater system. Let me just say the sound is wonderful. I loved it. Used it for about 6 months. Suddenly, I had to leave town for several months, so the dvd player went unused for 6 months. Once I returned and tried to start using it again, the dvd player would automatically turn itself off while in use. Couldn't get through more than 15 min of a movie.
Summary: I'm here to tell you, that unlike some of the 1 star reviewers, i've had this unit for 2.5 years now and it still works as if i had bought it yesterday. great sound, great design, my brother even bought one for himself after seeing that it has worked great for me! I know this is an old product now but if you are lucky enough to find one, go ahead and get it right away, it is a lot cheaper now than two years ago when i bought it and it is a great unit!
Summary: I bought this home theater system in order to watch DVDs. Of the 20 or so DVDs that I've tried thus far, only half of them would play. I have a much older DVD player in another room, and that one plays every DVD every time, no problems. This one, however, just plain fails at the one thing I need it for. Spend your money on something else. This item is just plain junk!
Summary: I'm not an electronics aficionado, but I wanted something decent. I found a great deal for this unit on Amazon.com. My brother-in-law (very into the latest stereo and electronics 'stuff') installed it for me. He was amazed by the sound. He and my sister kept congratulating me on such an awesome purchase. In any case, my son and I are totally enjoying movies with our new surround sound system. So much so, we purchased five DVD's this weekend!
