Good value for money, entry-level soundbar. Clear crisp sound, though bass enthusiasts may want more.

Again I find it hard to understand the low reviews here. We plugged this into our TV Samsung flatscreen last night and it worked fine - there were no sound issues. We already had a split left/right-to-3.5mm jack cable; it seemed that our TV didn't want to send the sound out to this, so we plugged that cable directly into our Sky box or DVD box (had to do a switcheroo depending which source we were watching from so that causes an amount of fiddling around the back of the TV cabinet, but it's not massive hassle).
Yes, the power output is less than you might find with more expensive models; ditto, there is no built-in or separate subwoofer so if you like things bass-y this might not be for you. Having said that, the depth of the sound being delivered when watching a film was noticicably better than what the TV could do, and for further comparison we tried it against Logitech 2.1 (two tweeters, one woofer) speakers. The sound bar delivered far more clarity - we didn't have to have it turned up as loud to compensate for the wooliness that came from the Logitech kit. Because of the depth of field that came from the soundbar's 6 speakers it made the film-watching experience feel more cinematic than from either the TV's built-in speakers or the 2.1 system. We also had no problems pairing it with our mobile devices either via the Bluetooth.
