Summary: Had this for about 8 months now, for the price this is a great buy. 1. It sounds MUCH better than the two tv's I've used it with. 2. Bluetooth makes streaming music from my phone or computer easy. 3. Turns on automatically with my TV. 4. Wireless Sub makes placement/concealment very easy. There are a whole bunch of "features" it has if you hook it up with HDMI, but in 8 months I've never tried them. my xbox handles all of that already. I'm still glad I bought it.
This is a really nice product and very easy to set up and install ...

Summary: This is a really nice product and very easy to set up and install with my LG TV. The sound is excellent, especially with the fiber optic connection. I really like the bluetooth connection to my iphone so I can stream music through it. The only slight dislike is the length; it's just a bit big for my oak cabinets and that's a general dislike of all sound bars.
Summary: The low rating is mainly for the very bad customer service provided by LG. The sound bar worked great for about 6 months it had fair sound quality and the wireless sub was great as I could put it anywhere in the room, and then just stopped working. I called LG customer service and after about 20 minutes of trouble shooting was told that the unit would need to be returned for repair.
Summary: my onkyo home theater receiver which was at least 12 years old had issues for a while and needed replaced. left or right on certain channels wouldn't work consistently, and i was using it only for the subwoofer and the B output speakers. found out about sound bars by accident, and was in need of an upgrade as it was so i grabbed a used model from here. i knew if it didn't work properly amazon would take care of me like they always do. hookup is straightforward.
Good product but I would recommend the smaller version

Summary: Good product but I would recommend the smaller version. We have the smaller version of this as well and the controller is smaller and more easier to use plus it comes with 2 fiber optic ports and this one cost over $100 more and you only get 1 fiber port. Doesn't make sense to me. Also the sound options are overly complex and don't match the same options as the smaller version.
Crackling noise coming from speakers and customer service was no help.

Summary: We bought this product 2 months ago. It was good at first, although I expected better sound quality, given the price of the product. But it was still decent. Now when we have it on, it makes an awful crackling sound during loud scenes. Even if I turn down the volume, the crackling continues. I'm sending it in for repair, hopefully they fix the problem.
