Just think about THIS ONE for a second!!!

  • Summary: the picture in this ad is completely wrong, which I will say is TERRIBLE marketing, and I REFUSE to believe something so detremental to an online sale, yet so ELEMENTARY in the scope of what a good ad needs, and doesn't, that this just "slipped by" management or editing dept. prior to this ad having been given the "go ahead" to be posted! Let's just entertain for a moment (for the sake of good argument via simple contrast) the thought of an ad being posted for......

  • Summary: I looked and looked for something that I could afford, and low I found it. I have used RCA in the past and always had good luck. I have had this unit now for 4 days, and it does a fine job. I don't use the pass through for the HDMI, I use the analog settings and the coaxial input for the dvd. The sound is good, this was a replacement from a Sony that I have had for 10 years, and I paid more for the sony all those years ago, the I did for the RCA today.

  • Summary: I had problems with this system from the start. Sound would go out often. Then after 5 months of use it kept turning off after after showing Error 2 message on screen. I called tech support and I had to send it back for repair at my own cost! My suggestion would be to look for something else other than an RCA brand system.

  • Summary: Initially I was pleased with this system; however, when powered on it began to make a whirring or grinding noise. This began as lasting only two or three seconds, then progressed to much longer. It also, initially would only do it the first time it was powered on in the day, it has not begun to do it each time it is powered on.

  • Summary: Yes, I read all the reviews and still bought it. Man, am I glad Walmart gave me my money back after it died. After I hooked it up, it lasted ten minutes, then I heard a "pop" from inside the unit and it then never worked again. After repeatedly unplugging, turning it off and on, all the display would say is "welcome" then "off" as it shut itself off. Something obviously blew out inside as a strong electrical smell was evident. It did sound great until it died though.

Complete Garbage

Warren Blake Harrison, Amazon

  • Summary: This thing has serious problems. Don't count on being able to watch movies or tv. Something about the threshold to trip the amps. If it gets quiet for a second, or low level sounds, it will cut out. I had my PS3 hooked up and it can't play the sounds from the XMB. Playing games you can't hear footsteps or anything soft. Have to turn it off or switch sources and then back again to get it to come back on, then repeat.

Run away!

Warren H., Newegg

  • Summary: RCA says it works as designed. Just poorly designed. The amps require a certain threshold to kick on, and if it falls below that for even a fraction of a second, it cuts out, and will not come back on until you turn it off or switch sources. Really annoying. Go for a different brand.
  • Pros: Can't think of any.
  • Cons: Sound cuts out constantly. Any low level sound, whispers, footsteps, rain, will not come through and it will cut out. Have to turn it off and back on. Useless for gaming, can't hear half of what is going on. I was using this, hooked up something else instead and was amazed at all the sounds I was missing. No good for TV or movies either. This thing is garbage.

  • Summary: This unit is literally the cheapest (lowest cost) of home theater system out there WITH a Receiver included that can hook up to anything. I yanked the speakers up to volume 40 (very loud) and it still sounded pretty clear considering its low cost. The bass is at best 'okay'; it works, but if you turn the bass any louder (deeper sound) it would just start to rattle instead of having the clear deep bass sound. 3 stars because the unit died on me.
