The Vizio sound bar that I bought to augment my 60 inch Vizio razor LED TV is awesome, the sound quality and boost is incredible for the price. You can't go wrong!

For the price, it's hard to beat this product. Before I purchased I didn't really think a sound bar could make such a difference, but I was dead wrong! The bass is 10x better and the extra volume is perfect for my set up. I highly recommend this item for the budget conscience looking to upgrade standard LCD sound.

The sound here is far better than what most flat screen TVs come with. It comes with a VERY thin Toslink cable (digital audio) and you'll want to replace that with a better one which are inexpensive on Amazon, and ridiculous at most retailers. The connection for this cable is in an awkward place but once you get it in there's no issue. The bar looks great and can be mounted or lay freely. It's not screaming loud and the sound does not distort at any volume.

I ordered this because I was tired of having to stand behind the TV to hear it. This works good. Even though it is for a Vizio TV and mine is a Panasonic (I thought it was a Vizio when I ordered this). The only thing I don't like is that we have to use two different remotes now, but that's a minor annoyance. I'm just happy to hear what is happening instead of trying to guess. Oh and it also has nice stereo sound and you can add or subtract bass. Did I say that I can hear it good too? Yey!!!

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! The sound in this thing is so much better than the speakers by themselves. It was a little tricky to set up and the thing didn't come with instructions at all. But I was able to figure it out. I would recommend, but this is definitely a no-frills sound bar. No blue tooth and no display of any kind, other than simple lights denoting the volume level. But that's how I like things. I do wish I had blue tooth, but that is an expense I didn't want to spring for on my very first sound bar. But I will next time.

As for the sound, its very good. I won't say it is perfect. The bass control is pretty weak. Most of the time when I change the bass I can't tell I've done anything. I also get popping sometimes, but I don't believe that is the bar. I think it has to do with the TV output on certain channels/shows.

Given the price of this, I would consider this a good buy. I just moved out of my big 3 bedroom 2.5 bedroom house with a very open floor plan to a 2 bedroom apartment. With this move I decided that I didn't need my Yamaha AV receiver and 5 speaker hook up anymore. I don't really want to be "that guy" in the apartment building because when I'm watching sports and action movies I like to blast the sound. I mean if you have it, why now? Anyhow, I just wanted better sound that the TV speakers for a decent price. This sound bar works well. Good volume and bass for what it is. One thing is that is that it could be difficult or impossible to program with some universal remotes. I use a harmony so no problem but my Tivo universal with has a pretty big library couldn't match it. Just an FYI because I hate using multiple remotesw for my home entertainment.

Got this sound bar for travel. Yeah, I know - my wife said the same thing. But we usually bring a TV when we go to the beach for extended trips. And this is a great small and inexpensive sound bar. I don't use it everyday in the main entertainment center, and it's probably not great for that application. But for the price, it's perfect for my purpsoses, and it blows the built in speakers away. Good bass, good sound.

I should also note that when it's not on vacation, it sits in the back room on a smaller TV - a 32". That TV does not have enough juice to push sufficient sound through this thing. So my advice is, use it for what it's advertised for. If you have a larger TV without a decent sound syste, or home theater, this is great for the money.
