Summary: The sound bar first off works as advertised and sounds good. However, the sound bar itself has issues within itself. Meaning, I am at times unable to turn on my sound bar from the power switch on the sound bar instead I have to use the remote. And if your batteries are low your remote will not work.
Summary: Very disappointed that it only lasted a year and a half. And when I contacted Phillips, they say sorry, but would you like to buy a refurbished unit? Ha! Yeah right. Why does your junk last only a year and a half?
Summary: AT first it took longer and longer for the sound to come back on after powering it down. Then one day it quit working. It seems this is problematic with this device. I need something thin and long to stick on a fireplace mantel under the tv and this is it. it wall mounts.
Summary: Bought it to use in our camper. It works out well in a small room. DVD was a prime reason for the choice, combined with a good price/discount. Pros Compact simple solution to improve on plasma TV speakers. Provides a DVD player,making it a good contender for a camper.
Summary: WOW I am so impressed with this sound bar. It was so easy to install, has a docking station for my ipod and a DVD player right on the bar. A smaller unit then expected with great sound. Use in a game room 25x30 with hardwood floors and it sounds great.
Summary: Mid-range sound rendition is very good. DVD/CD player and AM/FM radio simple to use. Very easy to wire/connect and toggle between inputs. Still, like all these products, requires the use of a remote separate from the Comcast cable remote. Other than that, no complaints. Excellent value,I believe.
Great alternative to traditional home theater system

Summary: I bought this sound bar because I didn't want to deal with a multi-speaker home theater system. I also didn't have a DVD player, so this product really fit the bill. I love it! Great quality sound, nice look.
