Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I hooked it up to a Vizio LCD TV, and it is much better than the TV speakers. It's easier to understand dialog and all round clearer. A couple of notes though: 1) It now comes with an optical cable. If you hook it up with this, you must change the settings to "Optical in", not "Digital in". 2) It turns itself off after 15 min of no signal, but it will not turn itself on, you have to turn it on with it's remote each time you turn the TV on. You must also use it's remote to mute. 3) It's better if you go into the TV settings and turn the TV speakers off, the sound is better that way. 4) One thing I'd like to see is a way to attach it to the TV. We have a wall mount for the TV and swing it out to watch. Figuring out how to get the sound bar out of the way during non-use and aligning it with the TV during use took some thought. If it could attach to the TV it would have been easier.

A good improvement over the original and better than most Soundbars on the market. The remote is improved; you can see what function(visual) you are in(SDF cable or RCA);bass control;better styling; and the speakers may have been improved as the sound seems more dispersed. If you are looking for an upgrade in sound at a low price,this is it! A leading consumer magazine rates this #1 in soundbars and I agree(tried 4 others and this was my final choice).

Great speaker, easy to hook up, easy to mount to wall with enclosed template. Sounds incredible! I really like the front display, versus the old models with only indicator lights. Remote doesn't have issues like the older versions as well. Only complaint is that there are no codes to use with a Directv remote, making it inconvenient to have to use 2 remotes.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I read the reviews before I decided to purchase this item. We have a 47" Vizio tv that is a couple of years old but the sound has lost some quality over time, so I just wondered if this would help. What a difference this made! It is sooooooo much better I am very happy with it. Now if I could get my husband to figure out how to hook it up to HD instead of Analog I would be ecstatic!

A lot of time I turn my TV speakers down and just use the bar. I wish it would go up a little higher than it does but it is ok for the price I paid. I like that it will shut off if you are not using it on it own.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

Sound quality in flat screen TVs is poor due to lack of space to put decent speakers...after much sound bar research, a reputable consumer's mag recommended this sound bar. I researched price with several vendors and found the best price at Walmart. It was easy to install and literally took no set up...it just worked immediately and sound clarity is fantastic. The added optical connector is a plus--nothing extra to buy.

I am not an audiophile, but this sound bar is a vast improvement over the tv speakers in my 55" LED. The tv's volume goes up to 100, which was insufficient for many movies. The sound bar is plenty loud enough at 15. The consistent volume between shows & commercials, or between different channels, might be the best feature. I'll never go back to tv speakers. Setup is almost too easy - 1 cord to tv & 1 to power, choose the instructed input selection on the bar & tv - that's it! It took longer to unpack - which was simple - than to setup. Don't know about price/value, but am always happy when something works!

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

PROS: I love the front digital display so I can see exactly what each push of remote button is doing. Was one of main reasons I bought it & exceeded expectations. I like the remote and large recessed center control for volume - makes it easy to adjust volume in the dark just by feel. Also the Mute button is positioned nicely on remote. It's very nice looking and friend didn't even notice it sitting in front of TV for quite awhile. I like that they sent all connecting cords including digital audio and even RCA (if needed). Saved more trips trying to find them if they had not been included. Prior reviewers were disappointed in maximum volume but for our general TV viewing it's as loud as we can comfortably stand at 22 and still has a range which goes to 35 so appears it may depend on if you are using it for quite time TV viewing or some other purpose. CONS: I'm hard of hearing and was a little disappointed that turning the Bass down and Treble up didn't quite meet up with my sound clarity needs (based on my hearing loss). But that would not stop me from buying again as I suspect it's me individually and would be fine for large majority of others. Although not a game stopper, since the remote is all black (including the buttons), it would have been very helpful to have highlighted the on/off and Mute buttons somehow (either by light color, or concave feel because without deliberate feel, I often get the top and bottom of remote reversed when using. Also, since it's all black and small, it's easy to misplace or somewhat hard to find in a darkened room. Having some type of effective light color contrast to the all black surface would have been very helpful. Last issue - I may stand corrected, but I think it stands at least one inch higher than pre-purchase research specks said. Since my only placement option is to set it in front of TV, that effectively blocks my remote on/off to TV so I have to stand up for that action - and that is annoying. The design only allows for it to sit on flat surface WITH legs OR, wall mount (hardware and template included). We can't wall mount and only other location is on flat surface - in front of TV. If you take the two "legs" off (which contributed to the height by one inch), the bottom is slanted so I'll have to jerry rig something to lower height and sit flat without the legs. Overall, I'm pleased and feel we got very good quality for very reasonable price ($40-$80) less than similar products based on my pre purchase research. I would buy it again without hesitation.
