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.
Pros: I bought this set from Sam's Club for $215 so it was much cheaper. For the price, this is the best speaker system I have owned. The bass is good, center is good, and rear surround sound is good. The sub is wireless so no wires to run to the TV. I watch movies from my computer to my TV via Chromec...
Summary: This sound bar produces really nice sound and the wireless connection to the sub and surround speakers could not be easier to hook up! This unit replaced a conventional wired 5.1 system by Panasonic. The Vizio system produces much better surround sound than did the old system.
Summary: I only knocked off an egg because it's not perfect, but I'm definitely satisfied with my purchase. Going from 2 channel stereo from two fairly decent tower speakers pushed by an early '00s Yamaha receiver to the S4251W-B4 is a pretty significant improvement, with just about every aspect of our...
Pros: Great sound--especially for the price, simple setup, unobtrusive looks that match my VIZIO 50" plasma well. Everything a soundbar needs to be.
Cons: I still have to use 2 remotes, one for uverse/TV, the other for the sound. I can turn the soundbar up all the way, then use the TV volume control (with the TV speakers disabled on it's menu), but with it setup that way, if I switch to stream music from my phone via bluetooth or to my HTPC, the so...
Summary: What can I say, surround sound without running wires, sound is really good, goes way louder than I will ever use, and I got it for a great price.
Pros: Loud, clear, wireless sub, rear satellites wired to the sub. Bluetooth, I can stream music from my phone to it as well.
Cons: Volume interval steps are a little big for watching at night in bed, 1 is just barely too quiet 2 is too loud, I would like a smooth volume curve over steps. Not enough to deduct an egg though, it is a combination of my hearing and forced hot air heating.
Summary: I was leery about spending such a small amount on a new wireless home theater set up but am pleasantly surprised by its ease of set up and its good performance. I originally wanted a sound bar to replace a hardwired home theater set that I have had for years but after reading reviews of several...
Summary: Would like to have pre-setting for different inputs, back light for remote or use iPhone/Android for remote, HDMI in/out, EQ setting, aps for tuning on iPhone/Android
Pros: Great Sound 5.1 Surround DTS Wireless Sub+2 rear speakers No messy cabling to hide for rear speaker/sub Minimalistic feature provides less distraction
Cons: No HDMI in/out port No pre-setting, must be adjusted variable setting for sound effects when switching between input No back light for remote, make it difficult to see when watching TV in a low light room Sub sound muzzled and not deep
Summary: Vizio is very proud that their product support is US based, but their representatives aren't knowledgable or empowered to solve customer's issues. My brand new 5.1 sound bar is not working properly; the rear speakers both produce the same audio regardless of whether the sound is supposed to be...
Pros: The price:performance ration is very good.
Cons: If there's anything wrong with the product, don't expect Vizio's customer support to be very helpful.
Summary: I just recently got this soundbar on a Black Friday sale.... And let me tell you it was my smartest purchase of the year! I had bought a Samsung spundbar last year and ended up taking it back after a few months. It just wasn't what I was looking for.
