I bought this sound bar and subwoofer a couple months ago after watching a very good review from CNET[...], and I must say I am thoroughly pleased with everything this soundbar and sub woofer have to offer.

At first when I read some earlier reviews, I was a little scared about the audio decoding issue, but the review on CNET made it sound quite unlikely that it would be an issue: CNET wrote: "One technical note: the Haier Evoke Slim doesn't decode Dolby or DTS, so make sure your TV and other sources can send PCM signals (rather than bit stream) to the sound bar. If you don't know what any of that jargon means, don't worry, it likely won't be a problem for your home theater." I also knew Amazon would take it back for a full refund if it was a problem, so it decided it wasn't much of a risk anyway. Therefore, CNET and Amazon's return policy assuaged my fear, and I have had zero problems with audio not coming in as it should from right out of the box.

For a little background into my decision-making process - I live in an apartment with a small-medium size living room, so I wasn't looking for a huge 7.1 surround sound system. I have a 60" Panasonic (P60GT30) plasma tv. My goal was to upgrade the plasma's speakers with something that sounded much crisper and lively for watching regular television, but also packed some rich room-filling bass for the action scenes on blu rays or for playing video games like Call of Duty of XBOX 360. I am also hoping it plays music pretty solidly for the Pandora app on my tv. I considered many different sound bars, as well as some 5.1 HTIB's (Home Theater System's in a Box), and also gave the Bose Cinemate II sound system a long look. I'm a fan of a less-cluttered look, so I was looking to avoid a system that needed a bulky receiver.

This particular soundbar is nice looking and sounds great. It has ample inputs including 3 HDMI, optical and direct line in. The remote control is nice and easy to use. The sub woofer is wireless and very easy to use as well. So why only 1 stars; well because this soundbar only accepts PCM audio, not stuff like dolby digital. So basically it works great with my ps3 and Wii, however it doesn't work with OTA HDTV. OTA HDTV broadcasts in dolby digital, my TV only has an optical output so I cannot use the soundbar when watching TV, which isn't what I wanted, especially when football starts. So be warned, if you need this soundbar to broadcast dolby digital, buy something else, it will not work on this soundbar. If I would have known this before buying, I would have went with a different soundbar. Otherwise a great product, it is a shame and a huge weakness that this soundbar does not support more audio types. Honestly I pretty much wasted $250.

Got this from Fry's last week. And wow, what a difference in sound. Didn't expect the sound quality to be so good. I generally am pretty picky about my sound quality and have gotten 3 sound bars to compare: the LG 3510A (low bass, no HDMI), the vizio vht215 (ugly, ARC didn't work correctly) to this.

This is by far the best one out of the bunch. The sound is crystal clear, bass is clear and rich.

Bottom line: Awesome value, and looks great to boot!

It's not the best soundbar out there, but for the price you get a good bang for your buck. It totally beats trying to listen from my laptop or phone tho.

I was looking for compact but decent home theater sound system for our weekend getaway house by the beach. CNET's review on this particular product caught my attention. It sounds great for both movies and music in the living room of this house which is fairly large 26'*18' with 16' ceilings. Has adequate HDMI connections for our needs. The remote is a little flimsy but easy to use.

Please note that it doesn't support dolby digital or other similar digital encoding...Check to make sure that your devices can output PCM/Stereo (most do). In any case, if you want dolby digital sound, you shouldn't be buying a 2.1 channel sound system like this one.

As a reference, I have listened to a Vizio soundbar system that my brother owns and a Sony one and this one is definitely better, especially for Music.

I'm happy with this purchase. It's high quality sound and it looks very simple and uncluttered, as well as the remote being small and clutter-free. Bang for the buck is solid - I'm looking forward to seeing how it stands-up long term.

I have to be honest... I was not a big fan of buying anything Haier made because they were cheap "junk". This unit changed my mind about the brand. Thanks to the rave online reviews by CNET i took a 'gamble' for buying one of these sounds bars for our basement. It turned to be no gamble at all.... I couldn't be happier with this soundbar... This unit certainly impressed me. Please though remember this is a soundbar not a full blown high end 7.1 system. So calibrate your expectations accordingly. All in all this is an excellent product.

I purchased this a month ago, influenced by price and CNet reviews.
Setup was easy. Just connected HDMI cables from Cable Box and DVD Player to soundbar Inputs 1 and 2, and an HDMI cable from sound bar Out to the TV. Then connected the sub-woofer per instructions.
All worked perfectly the first time!
I like being able to select the input source using the soundbar remote, but wish this remote was bigger and easier to read.
The sound is excellent but don't expect full surround sound effects or a booming subwoofer.

I would definitely recommend this to a friend who is planning to install in a small to moderate size room.
