I bought this home theater to go along with my brand new 50'' plasma, it fit right in with the TV. I quickly set it up and it took very little time at all except for the task of finding the sub woofer cord which I found was tied to the back of the sub woofer. I have not tried it out on anything except for the player and the sound was great upon me tweaking the speakers (i.e. going to speaker level on remote and moving the levels up on the forward and rear side speakers and lowering the levels on the center speaker). I however am frustrated with the cords being everywhere and the fact that my setup is angled funny. There is also no HDMI cable with the system which seems like something that should come with a blueray player. I think that if you already have an idea on how you will set up the speakers and mask the cords in the background then you will be pleased with your selection of speakers. I also suggest in investing in a digital audio cable so you can configure the sounds from your tv (games, cable, etc.) to go thru the speakers.
PROS: Great loud clean sound and easy set up if you understand basic audio equipment.
CONS: Cords everywhere and annoying cluster of audio cords now sit behind tv. Also remote response time on system is slow and seems a little unresponsive at times, no HDMI cable with system.
I may take this set back and invest in a smaller wireless set up but not because of sound quality just personal preference to less cluster.
I use this system everyday and it hasn't given me a problem yet. My dad and I are big into audio and he talked me into buying a "theatre in a box" setup, rather then going with the much more expensive, but more tasteful, "piece by piece" option. Out of the 40 units of sound measurement it can go up to, i dont go past 15 on any occasion, and thats with everyone out of the house. generally its on 6-12/40. GREAT BUY
There are 3 things i would change if i had the chance... WiFi inside the system, not on a stick, Able to update the system witlessly, and last but not least, to get rid of the 1/2 second pause that happens at the begginning of anything you start.. be it a new show on netflix/hulu, or starting your xbox.
the wifi option is real neat , the only draw back that i have is the echo sound maybe its to much system for to little space , it was easy to hook up just a lot of wires i ran them through my floor into the basement and back up problem solved
We recently purchased a 73 inch TV (also from Walmart) and decided to buy a home theater system to go with it. We went to our local store and found this system on sale and decided it was what we wanted. The only issue we had was that our new TV had a coaxial audio output and the bluray (receiver) has a optical audio input, but we just hooked the optical cord up to the cable box and to the receiver instead of tv to receiver. The speakers sound great, it was super easy to run the internet through with a wireless connection, and it's really kind of fun to sit there and watch you tube videos on a giant tv. Buy this product, you won't regret it!
Have only used a few times so far, but impressed with the quality of this system. Good looking system, easy to set-up and delivers great sound. Good system for the money. Easy wireless set-up and so far so good.
I've had this product since October and i love it. It seems like all of my electronics go through a "break-in phase", well this went through one and now it really sounds good. Its very powerful, loud and clear. Once I placed my speaker in the optimal position, the sound was amazing.
Good sound, easy hook-up, great purchace.
very good sound. lots of bass... easy to set up and use
After doing some comparing it is the best bang for the buck. You get a blu-ray player and internet capability. Not to mention it comes with the wi-fi dongle, which most in this price range and even $50 more do not. It was a breeze to set up and the sound is pretty good. I noticed that it is actually $50 more if you buy it in walmart. So I would definitely recommend buying it on walmart.com then picking it up at your local store. I asked an associate about this and he told me that it is quite common for electronics to be cheaper on thier website. $50 is a considerable difference too! I have owned a few of the samsung 1000w systems and this one has much better features. I have also owned a panasonic one that had better sound but considerably less features and no blu-ray player. This will definitely do the trick until I can save up for that dream bose system!
Purchased for 230 dollars decemember 2011. Upgrade fom a 2006 samsung surround. Have used it twice sound is good, picture good, have not used a blue ray yet. Only complaint is the slide on dvd player sounds scratchy when it pulls the dvd in. Netflix worked great havent tried any other options. For 230 dollars its awsome-Hope it lasts
I received this as a replacement for another brand surround-sound system.
The first one was not a high priced unit so it bothered me little to return it. This one however, I thought would last me for years.
The set up was good and straightforward. The WiFi was accessed through a plug in USP adaptor similar to a USB memory device. Though everything seemed to start off good and the fact my son loves the addition of You Tube thats the extent to the positives.
The trouble I had was I watched three DVD's none which were Blue-ray over a span of two weeks. Then the fourth DVD I tried to watch tried to load but quickly began to sound like the gears were not engaging the DVD and there were all sorts of awful noise coming from the unit then it spit the disk out. I tried several different DVD's to all be treated the same.
So, it's back to Walmart I go with yet another broken player.
And no I'm not hard on my things. I take pride in installing and using my things like they are the last things on earth. So I guess I'm just not a lucky man.
GOOD LUCK TO THOSE THAT HAVE OR BUY THIS UNIT!!!!
I purchased this LG Home Theater System and an LG 55" TV at the same time, in hopes that I would not encounter any connection or syncing problems. I have tried everything the support center has advised, but I cannot get the two systems to recognize each other. When I choose the DVD option on the TV, half the time it works, and the other half of the time I get a "no signal" message. When I try to start the DVD from the Home Theater system, the unit will search for a TV source, and then just turn off. I was also very disappointed in the sound for a unit costing this much. I chose Walmart's option for delivery plus one additional component setup. The tech. guy could not get the two units to work together either, in spite of the fact that I had purchased all the HDMI, Optical, and Component cables as advised by the Walmart associate. I am trying to find the time to pack all this stuff up and take it back to Walmart. It is very frustrating.
I bought this to go with a new big screen. I especially wanted the wi-fi feature. The system was extremely easy to set up. It's sleek looking as well as powerful. However, the wi-fi feature merely lets you tune into three pay services and You Tube. Well, it's supposed to do wi-fi, but the wi-fi adapter dongle failed upon installation.
LG's tech support is totally useless. I tried three different calls, got 3 different tech support reps, each was more clueless than the other as they had near zero technical competence.
Rather than exchanging the dongle, I must now repack the entire system, burn another $30 in gas to return the system and get another and then install that one, too.
The right front speaker does not work, it's not a bad speaker, it is a bad connector in the back of the player. I have hooked the wires upto the left front speaker port in back of the player and it works then. I have set-up all the wires over and pver again, but have the same results- the right speaker will not work! It's not easy to pull my T.V. and intertainment center out to get to all of my wiring behind, so I am going to just live with the fact that I will never have a right front speaker. I should heve bought a cheaper brand, like RCA. Very disgusted!
I love this LG Blue Ray/Home Theater system. Easy set up. I have a 47" LG tv that links up with the home theatre. Sounds great. There is an issue with intermtent signa which slows down the transition from say DVD to optical or Tv. But it's easy to get aroud. Very good experience with p/u at store.
it plays very well and is easy to set up. The problem I have is that there isn't an iPod dock and it isn't touch screen which isn't a major factor. Love the radio on there and how loud it sounds which is a factor for me since I don't like low watts.
from the first time I used the system it was great setting up took awhile with the wires and all. the sound is better then i thought it would be playing movies on it sounded great...had to get a router in order to use the netflix part but i went to my local cable company for that at a extra one time charge.if your looking for a good system at a low price $295. this is the unit for you!!!!!!
Blue ray player freezes up when play blue ray's or even regular DVDs.
This system exceeded my expectations. The setup was straightforward. The on-board inputs are useful. I have been using the product for about two months and am very pleased. The online Netflix, VUDU, YouTube, etc are great as are the AM/FM features. The only drawback is that you cant set captions on for Netflix or VUDU that I have been able to figure out yet. Overall a very good system and all advertized features work perfectly.
