Great sound system


this sounds system is just what I need to boost my audio experience! not over the top but still does the job...

fits perfect under tv, easy to set up

Disappointing Sound


The bottom line on this entry level Vizio soundbar is that the audio quality was not much of an improvement over the inferior audio quality that my in-laws' Vizio LED HDTV delivers on its own. I have a Vizio 5.1 surround system in my home that I am...

Looks Good

Sound is not much better than the poor HDTV sound

Great Sound


I purchased this sound bar to go along with my new Vizio TV. The sound is great, really adds to the watching and listening experience. I mounted this on the wall under the TV, looks great! Easy to install.

Affordable, Good sound quality

Optical cable supplied not very good

Match for Vizio LED HDTV

Easy install on wall beneath TV

Needs a Sub for impressive bass

Easy to set up

Having another remote to keep track up

Nice compliment to HDTV


Picked this up to go with my 65In Insignia HDTV, Im really pleased with this soundbar, The vizio M series is a 2013 model, I hooked it straight into the directv box via optical digital cable, It really has improved the sound in our living room when...

looks nice, great price

Good unit


our house, we have a living room set-up with a huge TV and a "real" surround sound set-up with a receiver and multiple speakers spread thorough the room. It sounds great and can't be beat by any sound bar. That said, we have other TVs in the house that...
