Summary: The sound unit really exceeded my expectations. The sound clarity was amazing, though my room is not big enough to assess the 5.1 surround sound - so really cannot comment on that aspect. It detects the USB drives and external hard disks. The picture clarity of playback is not that great, the same file played by my Samsung TV offers much better quality output. But my USB 3.0 - 3TB hard disk (which is 2.0 compatible) is not getting recognized, which is a down-side.

Summary: First and foremost, Got it delivered in 2 days flat. I got interested in this product as I was looking for a wirefree compact solution as a substitute for my LCD TV's lifeless built-in speakers. My observations so far-: Pros- 1. Room filling sound , bass rich 2. smart (eclectic?) looks. Reminds me of the large boomboxes/2-in-1s that we used to have back in the days 3. Easy to install 4.
Summary: I had purchased this product sometime in December/2012. Initially, I was happy with it's performance and it was working just fine. Recently (Apr/2013) the soundbar stopped producing any sound at all! So, now I had a soundbar that did not produce any sound! Anyway, I have given it to the Philips Service center and they are trying to figure out the problem with it - they have also had it for over 10 days and are still trying to see what the problem is...
Summary: First of all, Flipkart always surprises with its quick and promised delivery! Product is compact and quite mobile (changing rooms and taking it out wont be a hassle). There are multiple connectivity options (usb, mp3, dvd, etc.), which makes it better than the Bose Solo soundbar, which can only be connected to the TV. Took a while to use these as my TV speakers as now have set-top box cables running.
Summary: Firstly, Flipkart's delivery is unmatched so keep up the good work. Now About the system..The packaging is from Philips itself and its top notch. The Sound Bar is sleek yet a bit on the heavier side(considering 4 woofers and 2 tweeter). Things to remember: 1) Good room filling sound(12*15 ft) 2) Bass & Treble Control with Surround Sound(This model does not come with AmbiSound) 3) The interface and remote is simple to use.
