Rated 3 out of 5 by 7
Rated 1 out of 5 by MBPM This is truly the worst surround sound bar in existence.
First thing that didn't work about it... the supposed surround sound... come on, I mean... this is the worst excuse for an interpretation of surround sound. its a button on the poorly designed and very randomly working remote that makes everything have a 1.5 second echo delay.. and all it does is distract from the experience. The sound quality overall is mediocre at best, and the design.. i mean.. forget it. There isn't even a volume control or power button on the actual soundbar. I am so upset that I bought this thing. Its useless, its cheap, and it will make you sad you spent your hard earned money on it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mstewart1614 Better than the sound i get out of my television itself.
I bought this sondbar because the Philips TV i have has horrible sound quality. The soundbar has definitely improved my overall watching experience. The surround sound option on it sounds like an echo, but with it off, the sound is perfect. Would definitely recommend the soundbar to others, especially for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by juliuspshs Excellent for its price
This product comes with a good subwoofer based of course from its price. There are better soundbars of better performance but at a higher price. If you are looking for a decent speaker, buy this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by earlofberl Easy to Install, Reasonable over pricing, Great features.
Leave it to a company as versatile as Philips to come up with a Sound Bar that allows the user to take a wonderful new Television and allows it to have great, dolby digital sound. Easy to Install, Reasonable to Buy, Interesting to Install. Now I feel as If the 40" Samsung LED Television has wonderful sound to go with its excellent resolution. I have always been amazed and yet overall Philips makes great products and has for many many years. Thank you Philips for solving a very basic problem with a simple easy to use speaker bar system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Fermx I like it
I bought it because it was cheap and it has a beautiful design and because I had a philips tv, the sound is good for watching movies and music vídeos. Simply the best.

Rated 1 out of 5 by KoKo5 Disappointed, Don't buy
This sound bar is terrible. I have a lot of complaints. To begin, the sensor (for the remote) is on the top of the sound bar. This makes it difficult to perform any task because it's difficult for the sensor to read the remotes commands. Although, I bought this sound bar at Walmart for $48, I was surprised because it doesn't come with any of the cables you need. I had to buy the cables separately; but that didn't bother me too much. The sound bar has a terrible echo (even with the tv muted), which is okay when you're watching an action movie, but any other time, it's rather annoying. I've had this sound bar for less than three months and it has completely stopped working. It won't even turn on anymore. I've tried everything that I could think of (changing the batteries, checking the power source/socket) and it will not cut on. Go ahead and spend more money to get a decent product because this isn't worth it at all.
