Rated 1 out of 5 by rwall Very poor experience with this product
We have purchased 5 sound systems in the past 18 months. This one is the only one that has given us trouble. It sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. If you happen to drop the remote or accidentally press against it, you will literally spend hours trying to get it to come back on. The sound quality is very poor. Sometimes, it sounds as though it is barely working when you have it as high as it will go. Other times, it works properly. I have purchased many Phillips products through the years and been satisfied. This one has ruined all that. I plan on purchasing a new one tomorrow. I purchased a much more expensive sound system through Best buy and it was worth every penny. This is technically a piece of junk. Remote either doesn't work or barely works. There aren't any buttons to control it on the actual sound bar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dcummings72 Has Great Sound
I needed something with deeper sound. I have a small hdtv (24") in my bedroom and wanted better sound. I bought this and installed it easily. It sounds great! A great value with an affordable price!

Rated 1 out of 5 by nursiev Poor quality
This soundbar has given us trouble from the day we bought it. It has horrible quality. The sound fluctuates. Sometimes it will be loud and other times we can turn it to full volume and barely hear it. The remote is also cheap quality and the buttons are not very responsive. I updated the software and it helped some, but still disappointing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Darby13 Great sound for the price
Needed something to spruce up the sound of my new flat screen, but didn't want anything too expensive since it's going to live in the basement. Easy set-up, although it didn't come with any cables. Luckily, as a precaution, I bought a coaxial cable when I bought the sound bar. I'm LOVING it. I'm actually surprised by the sound quality for something I bought at WalMart for under $50. The bass is wonderful for the size of the bar. Overall, I'm very pleased with this product. Agree with other reviewers, though. Gonna have to elevate my TV so the bar won't interfere with remote function.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Discouraged Really Disappointing
Bought it with the hopes of plugging it into my smart TV with little trouble. Come to find out it doesn't come with any cables. Why wasn't this stated on the box? The users manual is useless. Bought a cable and it didn't work. Followed the instructions to the letter (of which there were few). The website offered little help. Tried to get support via on-line chat and it was unavailable. Tried to Google the product for troubleshooting to no avail. I've owned quality Philips products in the past and have always been pleased. This is truly a disappointment and an inconvenience to return. Will be more scrutinizing when I attempt a different manufacturer's product. At least I'm armed with questions this time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 1stSoundbarExperience Good for a step up from TV speakers
We wanted something economical that would simply give us better audio than our TV. With 3 kids running around playing, our TV speakers were no match for the constant background noise in our house. Overall, we are happy with this soundbar, because it does give us better volume. The only complaint we have with it is that the remote sensor is on top of the unit, so when the soundbar is sitting in front of the TV (ours is on a stand at eye level), you have to reach your arm way up to get the remote signal to the sensor, or you have to angle the soundbar down some so you can see the sensor. It seems like it would have been better designed to have the sensor on the front of the unit... Unless these things are intended to sit on the floor? (Not practical when you've got a toddler in the house). Also, at first, the soundbar was blocking the sensor on the front of our TV, so we had to elevate the TV a few inches to overcome that. But all-in-all, we're happy with it for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by deedge Great product
Easy to hook up, and sounds great. The surround sound could use some work. It sounds like an echo, but you don't have to use it if you don't want to. Overall I think it's a great product. It also looks nice, and can be mounted on the wall.
