Great, Simple System


I was looking for a small sound system for an apartment but still wanted a subwoofer. I read reviews that talked about how underwhelming the sound was and I'm glad that they all must have expected the best out of the lower end systems. The sound is...

Great performance and functionality for the price!


The soundbar works great! Nice and easy to setup, great sound quality when wired, pretty good over Bluetooth. Overall you can't beat the product for the price.

Sound Bar works great


Works great but wish it had included a wireless Bluetooth transmitter included with RCA jacks so I could remote it from my TV.

Consumer review by:

Great bargain


Easy setup and great sound, and has a good array of sound modes and Bluetooth hookups, but if you like to be blasted out of the room this one lacks the powwer, but it is ideal for my large lining room.

Does the job, reasonable sound


If you're not expecting to be wowed by the sound from this system, you will probably like it. This is clearly better than TV sound alone, has great features and is reasonably good at everything it does-- all at an attractive price.

Good Price


The Subwoofer has 13 Volume Levels +6UP, 0, -6Down. I believe it has adequate Bass While I do like this unit I think that the Audio Presets are useless, none of them "Sound Right" I have no found a need for The AudioSync feature.

I bought this one sale, so I have to say the price is the biggest Pro, here. It's super simple to set up, it connected to my phone without a hitch (note that it is a Samsung phone, so it probably won't be as easy to connect to your Brand X, because...

My biggest complaint is that the remote's TV Control Feature only works with other Samsung TVs, it won't work with other brands (Both of my TVs are LG), and this makes me angry (I know it is my fault, I know), if I would have known I would have likely...

Great product for the price!


Bought the product on a black friday special. Overall it's great. Problem is only receives analog an audio optical in. No HDMI, it works well for me though I input all HDMI into the TV and run an audio optical out. I essentially use my TV as my...

price and great build quality

audio quality is ok

Great Soundbar For A Small Room


This is a great soundbar for a small room and it's the perfect compliment to TV screens below ~40". The instructions provided are perfectly fine and adequate enough. Many reviews complain about the lack of HDMI and optical cables in the packaging but...

Easy to set up, good price, great sound

None so far

Was happy with the purchase except it does not include an optical cable in the box. When the only options are the red/white connections and optical at least include the $2 optical cable SAMSUNG! Disappointed couldn't setup today for father in law....

Amazingly good sound/features


Fantastic product for this low price. Easy to set up and use. Settings for sports/cinema/etc. seem mis-assigned but just keep hunting until you find the one that provides best sound for the show.

Easy Set Up ; Good sound

No Optical Cable Included
