Summary: Worked great for almost 8 months. Excellent sound quality, but it stopped working properly one day. All sound effects and speech were lost, all I can hear now is ambient noise. And trust me when I say I know how to troubleshoot. I tried a different optical cable, no effect.
Summary: Pros: The sound quality is very good and fills a small TV room quite nicely. Cons: 1. The volume increments are too large, the volume should increase in smaller amounts 2. The Subwoofer setting resets itself to very high after every power off.
Summary: We were so excited to get this home and try it out. It only worked the first few days then the remote stopped working. Vizio recommended a fix which worked a few days then it stopped working again. When they recommended a new fix the sound bar stopped working all together.

Summary: This Vizio sports rear speakers for unparalleled home theater sonics from a sound bar, although it has some quirks. THE GOOD: The Vizio S4251w-B4 sound bar includes two rear speakers, allowing it to deliver a real surround-sound experience from a sound bar system.

Summary: I've lived with this system for about a month and I couldn't be more pleased. I had a 5.1 DTS system before, but was tired of speakers all over the room and all the wires that were involved. Sound doesn't need to be seen...
Excerpt: I have to admit I am a soundbar junkie.....I have purchased over 6 of them in the past 5 years! All of these soundbars were great...but not great enough! The last buck spent on sound bars stops with this one. It is NOT just a soundbar! It is a theatre sound system! This is my last purchase....
Excerpt: Set this up in the living room connected to a TV via an optical cable. Was very easy to get working and easy to mount on the wall. Included pretty much everything you need, including all the different types of cables. Wireless subwoofer is very handy--no need to run cables.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy to Mount, Easy To Set Up
Excerpt: We are very happy with our new sound bar. Not only is the sound easier to hear, but it is also much clearer. It also distributes around the room, and is almost like sitting in a movie theater. Thanks!
