Summary: Perfect size for my 18x14 media room. Excellent sound quality for the price. A higher capacity front sound bar would have been nice, but overall sound quality is very good. Easy set up and customer service was awesome. Had a few questions and they walked me thru everything I needed.
Summary: Everything I thought it would be. Perfect for my room and worth the price big time! My only (small) complaint is that it could have used one more section of speaker wire. 5 speakers and only 4 lengths of wire. But I had some here from an old speak job laying around, so no problem. The system sounds great to my old ears. And with the YPAO, it was a breeze to set up. Love it.
Great deal for a great price, may buy a second real soon

Summary: Actually a 5 Star Rating. Originally thought I had a blown back-left channel, but it was just the speaker wire; I suspect I pierced the wire when I mounted it; I suspect there's like a one wire strand short. Made a bad crackling noise anytime things got loud, swapping speakers and swapping channels caused the problem to follow the wire. After replacing the wire, everything was great.
Summary: Good system at the price offered.The big con was the length of speaker wire supplied.Its easy to purchase extra wiring,but I expected it to cover my relatively small living room.Quality of sound is good so far.May update once I try more instrumental music,3D etc.
Good sound but refurbishment not up to "as-new" standards

Summary: 4 star for sound 1 star for quality control When the unit was operating I was quite pleased with the sound. The bass was plenty powerful and the surround speakers did a great job. Upon on-boxing I noticed that the remote had a small nick in the plastic. Additionally all of the speakers were obviously repacked and had slight scratches on the high-gloss plastic. Neither of these things bothered me too much but the product died within 1 month.
Summary: My original plan was to by a 5.1 surround sound system and buy the subwoofer separately and use my Bose speakers that I had from my old system. Also I thought that HTIB doesn't have that much power, but with this unit, I was wrong. Read many of the reviews and decided to buy this particular model. it was very easy to setup, didn't have to read the manual. Like many of the reviews states the sounds quality is excellent and deep bass, (especially with HD movies).
Summary: I really did not think that you could purchase an entire home theater surround sound system for $300. Like others, I was a bit skeptical that it would be a quality system at that price, but once I opened the box I could tell I made a good decision. The speakers have a nice piano black finish that makes them look quite nice. They feel well constructed as well. The sub woofer is a decent size and is what I would have expected and typical for what I have seen before.
