Summary: My 50" LG television really changed how I watch programs. With all of the smart apps and vibrant picture, I have really been happy. But I neglected sound. As with many new flat screen televisions, the speakers in my TV faces back into the wall, which just seems crazy. But that is the sacrifice when you have such a thin bezel. I finally decided to try a reasonably priced soundbar and boy I have been missing out!
Summary: If you want better sound on a budget, this is a great product. I wanted it to make dialogue/vocals more discernible and it does that job perfectly. The surround sound emulator is pretty good too, and the auto volume control is good too - although sometimes it's a little "obvious". Overall though, for such a cheap price, this is a superb product. It's important to remember that the keyword here is "budget".
