Summary: Didn't notice it was a refurb, but it has theater sound. I have a nice sized living room and the sub woofer and sound bar make it sound like we are at the movies. The first movie I watched was life of PI and it sounded great. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that like that theater sound at home without being surrounded by 5 speakers and the wires that come with them.
Summary: Bought this sound bar for my father-in-law who recently purchased his first flat-screen HDTV and was complaining about loss of sound quality that he used to have with his 20 yr-old 65" projection TV. He has a Visio LED HDTV, so I thought I would buy a Visio soundbar/subwoofer to go with it. The performance is very good for a soundbar/subwoofer product and the price, via ebay, was reasonable. And most importantly, my father-in-law is very happy with it.
Summary: This is a really nice sound bar. My new tv has no RCA outputs for sound so the SPDIF input is Pretty handy. Only drawback is that i have to use the vizio remote for sound as my current cable remote wont work with the sound bar.
Summary: system does not connect via hdmi like newer systems. that means when you turn the tv on and off, the sound system stays on. other than than it is an okay system since the sound quality is better than the tv speakers.
Summary: The speakers looked and perform like brand new! They were well packaged and contained the users manual. Took longer to unwrap than to get them set up. They do an excellent job in my den. The sub woofer will shake the floor.
Summary: this is so great, save you space with the sound bar and you can place the subwoofer any where oround because of the wireless tech. the sound is very decent for the size. for the price is the best soundbar system.
Excellent Sound Bar & Sub-Woofer System for such an inexpensive cost.

Summary: The sound bar system with the included sub-woofer is an excellent unit for its cost. The sound is rich and full for music, and watching a movie with great sound effects comes through with this system. This is an excellent system for any small or medium bedroom, or placed in a small apartment or den. You will not regret the purchase of this sound bar and sub-woofer system.
