I connected this to my 50-inch Vizio TV. Not much difference if you're watching the news or a talk show, but a huge improvement with music or movies. Stereo separation and bass response are extraordinary from such a small inexpensive unit. Bluetooth allows you to play other devices through it. It's good enough to serve as your main stereo system unless you're a perfectionist. Quite a bargain.

Much better sound
...HOWEVER, I kicked myself for not paying closer attention to the specs. This sound bar does not have an HDMI connection, so I couldn't connect to either my Comcast cable box or the TV I was using. Fortunately I had another TV with a headphone jack that enabled me to connect to the soundbar. This was AFTER I ordered an HDMI to optical converter from Amazon that I couldn't use. All of which is no fault of the unit. Sounds great...highly recommended IF you have the appropriate connections.
I can hear clearly!!
My speakers were going on the tv. Picture is still Great!! Sound bar gave me back super clear sound!!!
Easy to install, Great sound!! Purchased this to add to our bedroom TV and the sound is excellent and the bass is spot on.
If you are buying this as a gift be aware that it is shipped in a box that has a picture of the product in the outside of the box. Kinda ruined the surprise! Good sound at a good price. I purchased this because my husband complained that he could not hear the tv. Seems to have fixed the issue for him.
Nice for the price
Shipping was a bit slow, but it arrived in good condition. The unit was easy to set up and came with an audio optical cable and Hardware to mount the sound bar under the TV to the wall. Compare an easily with Bluetooth devices and the sound quality was pretty Good.
Needed a little boost in sound
Have a Sceptre tv which works really well except the sound quality. Bought this to improve our viewing experience and it is exactly what we needed. Provides great sound at a quality price
Samsung Sound Bar
Great item at a great price. I have a new Samsung smart TV but wasn't happy with the sound quality from the TV speakers. This item works perfectly for the limited space I have to work with. The only issue I had was setting it up; my new smart TV doesn't have Bluetooth and the digital audio cable provided didn't produce any sound. I went to an electronics store and they recommended an audio cable identical to the free one that came with it. Luckily I found an analog audio cable on Walmart.com that solved the problem.
Better than TV speakers.
This sound bar is better than TV speakers especially for music. It does not really help with increasing the audibility of the voice in shows especially shows that have whispered talk and lots of background music. I wanted to amplify the voice and the VOICE and NIGHTTIME features help with that but not enough for me to be able to lower the volume on the TV.
Cheap, but ineffective
Thought this would be a good alternative for the speakers on TVs in my kid's rooms. The sound is just OK, not good. I understand it couldn't be 100% wireless, but 3 wires doesn't equal wireless to me. The power cord necessity is obvious, but it's about 12 feet long with a huge adapter box in the middle. The sub needs a wire, but should have been Bluetooth to make it closer to wireless. Then I had to have an audio cable because even though I have a Samsung smart TV that is 1 year old, the two units won't talk to each other via Bluetooth. The TV remote will also not control the soundbar so I now have 2 remotes to keep up with as well. There is a recess for the power and audio inputs in the back to help with the cables, but it only faces down so the cable that needs to go up is squished. Overall, I'm not happy with it. It's only in my kid's room so it's not that big of a deal, but I expected more from Samsung.
