Great Value


Philips products are a brand name you can trust.

Sound quality from the speakers is awesome for the price. Love the way it looks..sleek and black ; Easy to hook up and the speakes are small enough to hide if you like. If you want bang for your buck this system is for you

None so far

Pretty good


It serves it purpose for me. I've never had a nice system like Bose or anything so I have nothing to compare it to. I've got it hooked up to my computer and have no complaints with the exception of the dock.

The system sounds great. I've got it hooked up in my bedroom and I'm pretty satisfied with it

I'm not a fan of the iPod dock. I mean yeah it works and you can control the ipod with the remote but I guess I expected some visual. The dock is only audio connectivity. If you're not right in front of the iPod, you won't be able to read the artist or...

Great Velue


Sound quality from the 6 speakers is about 85% as good as my former $1,000 Bose system so for under $200 this is a no-brainer. Have read a few reports of DOA or erratic behavior units but mine has been trouble-free for over a year & years of experience...

Great sound & DVD playback in a sleek package. External stand works well with iPhones as well as iPods

One button controls/selects multiple input sources which sometimes forces you to go through 4 or 5 other sources until you reach the one you want to use

Does not work


Philips offers a Buyback option if you're first Rapid Replacement does not work. It's slightly uncomfortable they even have such a contingency plan for their products.


Does not turn on. I ordered a similar system from Newegg and received it less than a week later. (Newegg rocks!) ; Unfortunately, it didn't work. Called Philips and they put me in the Rapid Replacement program. Two weeks later, received this model....

I am loving the HTS-3566


Systems I tested, only the Philips HTS-3565 produce 5.1 surround sound when watching live HDTV. Without adjusting ANY of the volume or balance controls, sounds great from anywhere in my master suite. Video Upconverts DVD to 1080p with excellent picture...

I believe it is the BEST home theatre system you can buy for under $300

My only issues are the speaker wire configurations and Coaxial Digital Audio input. Speaker wires

Great system for the buy


Good unit for the price. Unlike the other review all features worked fine. I was able to hook in my Digital Audio cable "NOT OPTICAL" from my cable box and HDMI to my tv. Back speakers had roughly 15-20 feet of wire so they were easy to mount in the...

Great Sound, HDMI, 1080p upconvert

Doesn't sync with average remote

I purchased a new home theater system and had a problem: the unit door would not open.and when i contacted philis they had the nerve to send me a refurbished unit and they told me that was to replace the one i had purchased prior so i wound up going...
