Summary: I purchased this item in October of 2013. I was very excited and could not wait for it to arrive. It took a while to get it going, not very simple to hook up. Just recently while in the shower, my Son was pounding on the door! Dad!!
Summary: Bought it Jun of 2013, works good, till it broke , sounds good, till it broke. now its junk. Should U buy this bar take out a service contract by sharp, if they have one.. This was our mistake we did not go looking for an extended warranty. I expected a life cycle of at least 5 years or more.
They send it back working fine and 2 months later it starts to hiss quietly
23 September 2014
Summary: Had it for less than one year and I have sent it back in twice for for service for two different problems. 1st: The power unit died in it 2nd: They send it back working fine and 2 months later it starts to hiss quietly, not noticeable when listening to it loud, but when its quite in a show or movie...
Summary: Reviewers who rated this unit poor are 100% correct. Had issues with inconsistent connectivity issues since day one and now after only 11 months, the unit will not connect at all and just blinks a red light which according to Sharp is a defect with the unit. There goes $300.
Summary: Connected this to my 70" Sharp Smart TV. The improvement in sound quality is incredible. My only "negative" comment is that on the Cinema Setting there is almost too much bass. This can be adjusted with separate bass and treble controls on the remote.
Summary: This is a super soundbar system. I purchased an 80 inch Sharp flat screen which is a great TV but I was surprised that it didn't have very good sound. I had already spent alot on the TV and didn't plant to spend more on a sound system.
Summary: Subwoffer starting un-pairing within a week of using it. Had to do a hard rest on the sound bar to get it to pair. A week of doing that the subwoffer will no longer pair. Sharp people are making me send it in for repair vs giving me a new one.
Summary: Overall this serves it purpose; definitely way better sound quality than the 60 inch Sharp TV I bought with it. The sound modes (i.e. News, Sports, Cinema etc.) are handy and work well. The constantly streaming (unit on or off) LED looking display is tacky and irritating.
