Rated 2 out of 5 by PhilosophyDoggy Works Well but not Durable
As some other reviews have said, this bar tends to die after a few months. It worked fine for me and i was happy with it but after 6-10 months the sound began cutting out and cracking. Initially it was only the optical input but it spread to all inputs quickly making it utterly useless so this can't be recommended

Rated 3 out of 5 by Zarko Nice product for the price, but...
Couple of days ago I bought Philips HTL2160/F7. Product is overall quite nice, especially considering the price. Biggest issue is that remote control didn't work at all until I added a small piece of metal (solder wire for best conductivity) between the standard AAA battery and remote's contact wires - apparently battery that this remote is intended to work with is not long enough.
It took me some time to realize that this was the issue and apply the easy fix, but most of the people wouldn't bother.
Shearing this as there might be other people with the same issue that don't want to waste additional time by replacing / returning the product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Blade Disappointing.
This product has a good rich sound, however after six months of use began playing ten minutes and quitting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by contacConnie87 great overall product but missing something very key right out of the box
I discovered this nice sounding device included no way of connecting it to my Philips smart TV.
I have purchased 3 different cord types and none of them will work
I guess it needs a male to male USB cord but *those* are very hard to find! So far my device has only been hooked up via Bluetooth to my smart phone. That's it. And I am disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DiGster71 Lasted 4 Months!
When we set it up, it was awesome. Looked great, easy to set up, and full of rich sound. The virtual surround was a little too wierd, but we turned that off. After almost 4 months, however, it just stopped working. The lights came on and it looked to be operational . . . but no sound! We checked our connections and cables and everything was in order. It was a wedding gift, so we did not lose any money on it. But we are said to have it useless so soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Davesdogs Overall good sound quality. Needs a cable.
The product needs a digital coax cable. I spent two hours on the phone with Philips support only to figure out on my own that the cable I was using was an improper analog cable. A quick trip to Radio schack and I was able to get it working. It would have been really helpful to have the cable to connect the sound bar to the TV in the box or some labeling that tells you that it is NOT included and I could have purchased it right then and there and avoided all the hassle I went through today. I do like the TV and the sound system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HeyItsMe Really, you'll never watch your flat screen TV the same way again...! :-D
Finally, great audio from my TV without running cables and cords all around the living room.
Subwoofer has great "kick" and you can adjust bass down or up if you want.
Multiple inputs. For best results, get and use an optical cord.
Bluetooth pairing was a breeze with my iPad.
We even re-watched some movies and TV shows we had recorded in the DVR just for the sound. Turn on the Virtual Surround for football games and crank it up...!
