SONY Home Theater

 

After about 6 months, the unit powered on, but touch panel failed to respond, and the unit never fully came online again. I have tried to contact Sony for assistance with repairing the unit. Sony's phone support said they couldn't help me find a...

Reasonable sound, good connectivity options to both TV and Network

- Failed within 6 months - Lousy support from SONY

Run away from this product

 

Front Left speaker arrived missing the wire, can't use any wire cause it has a Proprietary plug, the whole package had to be returned, yes, all 38 lbs of it. I did not do any further inspection on the rest of the system since it was going back anyway.

Good exercise in unpacking the product and repack it for return.

You will be doing quality control work for Sony & Newegg for free. Shame on Sony for shipping products without any quality control checks. Sorry I didn't read reviews before ordering this $%#@*. No return for refund, only exchange for same product....

Second unit to fail on me

 

None Waste of time and money

This is the second unit I have received and this time the dvd player wont read dvds or blu rays. Thanks for wasting my time, money, not to mention cause some unnecessary stress in my life.

Stay away

 

Do yourself a favor and skip this.. Not worth the headache. Maybe check on a more direct website.

It looked new, and was packed nicely

DOA! Turns on, but shuts down right away. I have no idea how this could possibly get past any competent quality control check. Called for RMA, but the lady rudely told me to do it online because she was busy. Have to pay for return shipping, which is...

Dud unit. Purple Lines Across Screen

 

Sounds good, 3D was quick and easy to view over internet.

1st try, returning for replacement. Anything input over HDMI to this creates a purple line across the screen, where somehow the bottom is cut off and placed on top! I can see my start menu mid screen. Going over the return, as this item apparently is a...

DOA and heavily damaged

 

Long story short mine was DOA and it looked like there was very little work done towards "refurbishing" the product.

Very nice looking

DOA. When I removed the main unit from the box. I saw lots of damage to the area close to the fan. The back panel was cracked and bent out. The fan had even been dislodged. This didn't look like shipping damage because there was no damage to the...

Great budget system

 

All in all unless you have a spare then buying an HDMI cable preferably one that is 6Ft is a must while getting this system as it does not come with one. If you are on a budget this is a great system at around the $280 pricetag not including the HDMI...

Easy to setup especially once you have the speakers placed where you want the auto calibration mic helps to adjust the system to provide the best decibel level from each speaker to provide an even sound around the room ; If you've used or own a PS3...

When you plug in two devices via HDMI cables to the two incoming ports there is an outgoing HDMI port to your TV but the system does not come with an HDMI port so you will have to buy one ; If you use the default video cable it will generate some...
