Summary: The main reason I liked this system because it reads the most video formats that any of DVD players that I owned. At this price range this system has a good sound quality and when proper cables used, video quality is good too. It's not a substitute for the high end sound system, but just a good, inexpensive system for an average user. Speakers have its own wires, which are sufficient for about 400 sf room. In multi-channel mode, it has a good surround sound effect.
Summary: The remote sucks. It's not an advanced surround sound system where you can change the equalizer any way you want it. It already comes in its different sound settings. Good, fair sound for music. Nice loud sound for video games(better than music sound). Movies play well.
Summary: I recently bought a Sony Bravia flat screen TV and wanted a better sound system to compliment it while not having that much money in it. After researching and getting feedback at Ebay, I choose the Phillips model HTS3544 and was the high bidder, getting the unit for $106.48. The unit has excellent sound and I especially enjoy listening to the radio channels on Direct Satellite TV. The unit also permits you to listen to your MP3 player.
Summary: Great sounding system, only downfall is lack of inputs and controls, no fiber optic input at all, sounds alot better with external equalizer, but other wise, a good deal for the money, the up converting dvd play works good, doesnt look as good as blu ray, but close enough. All in all the average person will be pleased with this system, but a true audiophile will feel restricted by the lack of user controls and inputs.
Summary: Needed a replacement system for our 5th wheel camper. Set it up in our living room for test. It sounds great and will be perfect for the space in our camper. Surround sound functions very well and it was simple to setup.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Setup, Interfaces Well With TV, Intuitive Controls
Summary: Very easy set-up, the included quick set up manual was all I needed. This is my first home theater system and I'm very impressed with the quality - I cannot even take this to 1/4 of the volume because it would blow my neighbors away! It handles my cable sound / DVD sound and iTouch (iPod) sound with great quality. My only complaint is that there is very little that you can do with the box itself - you must use the remote to do most everything.
Summary: For the price I think it is perfect. It has great sound quality and easy to set up. The only complaint is when it is loading dvds you can hear the cd spinning....it is a little loud and seems to be slow loading. But once the cd is loaded, the movies play fine and sound great!
Summary: The brand name philips itself shows quality of the product, but about this product I must say it is out of the world in terms of sound, features, quality and looks.Use it without thinking anymore.
Summary: This system works great. I like the up conversion for the dvds. the rear speakers sound is adjustable. System has lots of power. Also when playing games (PS3) you still can hear sound from the rear speakers (A +) The only thing that could be better is if you could manually adjust the bass and treb.
