Summary: I've had this Philips System for a year and a half bought brand new from Philips. Suddenly there is no sound comming out, and the door gets jammed. They have been no help at all at Philips and have advised to take the unit to ANY repair shop. First there is no reapir for a system like this. They cant even reapir it. They said to try the software upgrade (which still may not work)and I feel I should not need one so soon. i can see if I had it for years.
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: Ok, I have 2 of these. When they are working, they are really great. However, when I first purchased them - one of them went out within 1 month. Luckily I could still return it to the store where I bought it. Now, 4 months later, the other one has some problem where the sound comes and goes. I called Philips and once I sent them the proof of purchase, where they said they would call me back within 2 business days, they never called back.
Summary: My husband bought this product through Amazon for Christmas. Stopped working by Easter!! I was excited when we received this product. No more wires!(well, at least a great reduction of wires) It took him a few hours and a couple of calls to Phillips, but we were up and running. I loved having the Ipod docking station the most. Then a couple months later, the DVD stopped working. Next, my remote, then finally the Ipod input went out!
This is one of the worst purchases I have ever made, this soundbar sucks!

Summary: I bought this soundbar about a year ago and I deeply regret buying it and I'm in the process of getting rid of it, I have nothing good to say about this machine, I mean, picture quality is good and sound is ok, but this thing will freeze 3 out of 10 times and I don't mean the DVD, NO!
Summary: Too bad. Loved the look and the simplicity inherent with this system, but really surprised and dissappointed when the DVD ceased to function after only 2 months. I was able to exchange it and hoped against hope that I had simply gotten a lemon. Sadly, two months later, my second unit (same model) is acting up again and the DVD works only about 50% of the time..
Summary: Be careful buying this product if you expect to upconvert to 1080p resolution. There is a discussion thread concerning this in the discussion area so check it out. Essentially you get significant video noise in the form of green vertical lines in 1080p. Frankly, the more I read the more I suspect that most people simply haven't tried 1080p and thus haven't encountered this yet. Or they don't have a 1080p capable TV.
Summary: Alrighty, hear is the thing. I bought this system not expecting great sound. You get what you pay for, and as long as it was as good as my Ipod speaker, I'd be happy. Well, it wasn't as good. So very tinney. This thing would give me a headache after just a half hour of listening. I sent it back and dropped a boat load of dough on Paradigm speakers, Oppo dvd and an Onkyo receiver. In all fairness, there is no comparing a $2000 system with a 6 hundi.
