    I just ordered this product on Thursday of last week and received it on Tuesday, using standard shipping. We immediately opened the box and was eager to get our new system connected. ok speaker set up easy.. trying to get the surround sound to work with my cable.. not so easy. After 3 hours of google searching, reading manuals, unplugging and replugging everything back in my tv seemed broke! It would come on (I knew this because the power light was green) but nothing was on the screen. We called it a night. Turned the television on the next morning it was still black, i decided to turn back on the BD box and there it was - my cable! With surround sound.. however I still heard the tv's sound so I turned it down all the was and now it works. I am sure there is something still not hooked up right but for now I am very satisfied with the sound and the quality of the product.. I would do it all over again to pay this price for such a high quality product!

    Sound from this is great but if you are buying it for the wi-fi netflix you need model #HTS3306. This model is not wi-fi capable & can only use the netflix with an ethernet cable contrary to what Walmart says in this listing. I contacted Phillips & they said this model can never be wi-fi & the model I listed above is the only model Walmart carries that is. The sound quality is great but with blu-ray disk only the front speakers play while with tv (which you need to buy the red & white audio cables to hook up) & regular dvds the full surround was available. 5.1 sound was not even an option when a blu ray disk was playing for some reason. If you just want some speakers its good for the price. Taking this back tomorrow & paying the extra $78 for the Wi-fi one.

    How much to buy a new hi def blu-ray player? $200? How much for a 5.1 surround sound system? Several hundred at least for a boxed system. And how much for a new FM receiver with enough watts to make you happy? A few hundred more? Okay, now how picky are you? If you are a video freak or audiophile, this probably isn't the system for you. But if you want FAR better sound then what comes out of your TV speakers (with some nice movie theater bass) , a blu-ray player that also plays regular DVDs as well as music and photo CDs, an FM tuner, and a way to watch Netflix on your TV instead of on your PC monitor, this is the best $200 you'll ever spend. Three things to note: 1) you'll need at least two HDMI cables: one to connect the blu-ray player to the TV and one from the cable box to the blu-ray player; 2) there is no bluetooth (wireless) connection so in order to connect the system to the internet for Netflix you have to use an ethernet cord that attaches to your cable broadband modem (so if your modem and PC are in a different room than your TV you have to think about what to do); 3) set up isn't very straightforward and the instruction booklet isn't terribly clear. Plus, once you have it all set up, getting it to use the whole 5.1 system instead of just the front speakers takes several steps, so be sure to read up or go to the Phillips website for help. Overall, I'm pleased with the sound, the cost and the extra's (like the FM tuner...what a plus!).

    We ordered this online free site-to-store and picked it up within the week. When we hooked it up, there was a problem internally with the blu-ray player, so we ordered a new one and it was here within the week again, and it works perfectly. we returned the other with no problem. We've only had the product for about a week now, but it puts out great sound and the picture has amazing clarity!

    I bought the HTS3565D system (which is basically the same as this one except the 3565D does not have a Blu-Ray player) about 3 years ago and am STILL amazed by the sound. Based on that, I assumed I would get the same quality system for my cave/theater room by upgrading to the HTS3251B Blu-Ray system...but I didn't. With the DVD system, I have never NEEDED to turn the volume past 12 or 13 on the 40 max scale. (I actually had it at level 15 playing a song earlier this year and it set off one of the shatter sensors on my windows.) With the Blu-Ray system, however, I can barely even hear anything out of the speakers, except for the center speaker, until the volume is near 30 on a 60 max scale. I will say, though, that voices do come out very crisp and clear from the center speaker. This could be a pretty decent system, I guess, depending on your needs and given $198 price tag it is being sold for now, but I am probably going to return mine and upgrade to something better.

    I haven't had it long enough -- about 3 weeks -- to give it an accurate review. So far, though, it meets our needs & expectations. This is DH's newest toy. 1. It was intuitive to set up -- they saw me coming, thank goodness -- LOL! 2. DH loves the volume range & the modes/settings & has played with all of them. I'm sure our neighbors appreciate that he has not taken the volume beyond 25. I think some sound-proofing is on the do-it-soon list! 3. I have not fooled with it too much. Except for the volume -- generally too loud for me -- I usually leave settings as they are. The packaging was well-done; price was right; everything that was supposed to be in the box was in the box; speakers are generously supplied with speaker wire -- for us, anyway -- system is set up in a 14' x 14' room. Easy on-line product registration. In 5 or 6 months, I may not be so happy with this product after it has gone thru the winter & suffered thru the humidity -- extremely high around here.

    First off the sound is great for the size of a living room,the blue ray player looks better that regular dvd's,on my hdtv,and having the ability to watch netflix and listen to net radio is a plus . This is a well rounded system.

    I was originally looking for a way to boost the sound in my thin HDTV. The sound was lousy on the tv and I had it installed in RV (the tv raises and lowers into a custom box) which directed the sound into the box. I looked at remote speakers, sound bars and then came upon this unit. It had 5.1 sound, a BluRay, FM and an input connection for digital sound (it looks like an RCA plug, but carries sound digitially from the tv to the Home Theater System or HTS). This digital input was required as that's the only sound output on the tv when it runs off antnena. All this for only $50 more than a sound bar. Shipping was very cheap, arrived in a few days and fit into the RV pretty well. Fitting anything into an RV is always tough. The square speaker plugs were awkward to route through the RV walls so I marked them and then removed them from the plugs (they have pins that capture them in the plug) to be replaced after I routed the wires. The bass is a bit weak but overall, for the money, this is a best buy. Just a few months ago standalone BluRays sold for this amount!
