5.0 out of 5 stars I tried out several in the 100-150 range and this was heads and tails better, September 10, 2012
This review is from: Samsung HW-E350 AirTrack Soundbar (Electronics)
Looking for a soundbar I knew I needed to try it out before I stuck with one so I bought from a store. Though because I do rely heavily on amazon reviews I wanted to put my experience up here.

I was looking in the 100-150$ range for a sound bar. I'm in a house that I will be leaving soon and am not looking for the end-all sound system yet. The soundbar was going in the living room which is quite big and has vaulted ceilings. Because of this I started looking at the high watt sound bar. The first item I picked up was the Philips CSS2123B/F7 2.1 Ultra-Slim Soundbar with Subwoofer. Because It has the woofer I thought it would be able to give a more "full" sound for such a large room. It took about 3 seconds for me to discover that this soundbar was not going to do the job. The sub was booming and the soundbar was not near loud enough. So that went back. The next soundbar was the LG NB2420A Soundbar which had 160 watts and bluetooth. This soundbar had a bit more umph to it's sound but there were no lows or really any mid-range. Its ability to stream music from a phone was very nice but hooked up to the tv/cable box I couldn't get it to get as loud as when I streamed from my phone which I thought was wierd. But like I said, it had no low's to fill in the sound.

I had the Samsung soundbar at the same time as the LG and unhooked the LG and hooked in the Samsung while watching the same movie and the Samsung beats the ever living crud out of the LG. The loudness is VERY close but the samsung has a lot more of a full sound compared to the LG.

For the price we are happy with the samsung and because it's size is much smaller than either of the two we bought before it will fit perfect in front of a 32" even though it currently resides (and looks nice wall mounted ) below a 46" TV in a very large living room.

The 3D sound feature is not "over much" and we believe if bought from the choices at a "Brick and Morter" store this is the best choice.
