Summary: I feel if you want the ultimate sound experience, you have to combine the best of all components. For a HTIB, this product works fine for me and should suit most. I've seen some of the other reviews regarding video drops, etc. but have not experienced that in the 4-5 months that I've owed this (knocking on wood). Ordered at better price with another vendor. I purchased this unit with my 60" Samsung Plasma and they interface well.
Summary: The hookup is smooth, sounds pretty good. Switching to 3D sound setting is awesome. But some problems: the remote can only be set for 5 different brands, Panasonic isn't one of them. My Panasonic Viera Plasma is too good not to have this be part of the list. LG having problems with Panasonic maybe?? Little feud among these two?? Also, no app to connect with Amazon Prime Video - not gonna happen.
Summary: I had the top 2011 model of this HTIB and in loved it. Sadly it died and they offered this one as a replacement. I figured being a 2012 model would be better and it is in some ways mostly in sound. For one the 2011 model had 2.4 and 5ghz WiFi the 2012 only has 2.4ghz which makes it useless streaming BD files to it thru my network. Two, this thing just seems so much slower and sluggish than its 2011 model.
