I am overseas in a barracks room and bought this for myself as a Christmas gift.
It arrived quickly and was packaged well (THANKS Walmart!).
Setup was relatively straight forward and easy, and it was ready to go right away.
For movies the sound bar sounds very good, however I play alot of video games, mostly RockBand and Guitar Hero. I have to say that for this application it isn't that great. I don't know if it is the difference in frequency ranges, or using it at a higher volume, but it didn't sound that great with my XBOX. Perhaps the addition of a sub-woofer will make a difference, and there IS an output on the unit specifically for that.
I like it alot for movies, though, and compared to the stock speakers on my Samsung LCD it is night and day. The Vizio bar sounds VERY good comparatively and works very well for normal programs and movies. The "simulated surround" mode is nice, and you can definitely tell the difference when it is on.
All in all, I am satisfied. It works well for my room, minus what I outlined previously and the fact that Walmart will ship to servicemembers overseas is a big plus which helps keep me shopping with them.
