Summary: Never went with refurb before and really glad I did. This was refurb directly from manufacturer, which tends to be "better" from what I researched. I've had it for a little over a month, used the heck out of it because of warranty period and I am very pleased. This sucker packs a punch!
Summary: I bought this thing on sale for 60 bucks, the bass is booming and the surround mode is pretty awesome, I swear sounds are coming from outside sometimes.. this puts out way better sound than I had hoped..
Summary: This is a good soundbar if you aren't looking for something expensive, crisp highs, great mids, and punchy bass. It comes with a remote control, and you can change the volume of the bass or treble with the remote.
Summary: WAY better than the sound out of my 50 inch Sharp HDTV! Would buy it again.....
Pros: Low cost Relatively small size Good sound
Cons: Only 1 optical input, so need multiple optical cables to each device that must be plugged in-and-out of the single input. No on-board buttons, must be controlled from the remote that comes with it, or other compatible programmable remote.
Pros: Price was good, Sub $60 and it arrived fairly quickly. Sounds better than TV speakers, I keep the surround sound on all the time. I've only had it for 2 months but it is going strong. I use the Optical input with the supplied cable.
