Summary: I have a 2.1 EV speaker set at home that's amazing. I then bought a professional 4.1 system a few years ago from EV. They sound amazing. EV are the live stage speaker makers and are very good at what they do. If those are a 10, this sound bar is a 7.
Summary: I have a Samsung 40 inch tv. When i got the tv, I noticed the sound of the tv speakers was not the best, but okay. I say okay because I am not someone who needs to turn the sound way up...I prefer to listen to it at relatively low levels and figured that the tv speakers were ok.
Summary: We purchased this to use with our Samsung 40" LED LCD TV. We thought it was safe to get the TV and sound bar from the same company. Fortunately, the TV is solid and we're happy. Sadly, the soundbar was only a series of headaches. Pros - easy setup and 2 digital audio ports + analog.
Summary: I start with Cons because Im a lawyer and tend to look at things critically first: Cons: I had just mounted a tv so was excited to mount the soundbar, however, no screws for the mount was an annoyance. Especially when you pay $250 and its competitors are priced lower.
Summary: This unit replaced a 5.1 system, and I have no regrets. The speakers compliment my existing Samsung television. Remote integration was there! The bass unit is wireless and is felt and heard with the audio. The two optical inputs are an added bonus.
