Dies with the warranty


If the product, DVD/component worked longer than the warranty it would be a great product, however mine died one day after the warranty expired. Looking for others with the same complaint and I found dozens of consumers who had the same problem.

Lots of speakers

The power diode dies at the same time as the warranty expires

Awesome Home Theater


There are some negatives as listed above but I tell you this is an awesome system despite of few cons, the reason why I am making this statement because I am a audio video geek and have used, listened and tried at least 15 different HTs including brand...

It is sleek nice, awesome sound, good easy to operate remote, plays all types of DVD's, idiot proof operation and setup

Speaker connectors are weird sockets making it inflexible to connect to other speakers, Little slow but not too bad, dvd tray is very flimsy, speakers look cheap , speaker wire is very cheap

Excellent product worth every penny


I've been using this product over 6 months now and it never let me down as it small and functinally it serves purpose. Don't expect too much on acoustics, but for average household users, you can't go wrong with it. It plays pretty ,much almost...

It's a very good product considering its cost and output

sometimes little extra time to load cds

Great adition to any home


Great buy after spending most of your money on a new HDTV. HDTV without surround sound is like a hot dog with no ketchup.

price, power

need longer wires for the rear speakers

Excellent sound for a budget buyer.


Excellent load time of dvd's. Remote control functions are more user friendly than Philips last model. Dock for mp3 player works flawlessly.

Great sound with iPod/MP3 player dock

Haven't found any cons
