This is my first time buying a refurbished item. The Sony sound bar was better than expected, in good condition, it works great and very easy to install. I'm very happy with this purchase.
Due to the new HD TV's having the sound ported backwards instead of like the old TV's, persons (older folks), have difficulty hearing the TV. This item answers this issue perfectly.
This was a gift to my daughter's family. They say it works well and they like it. The only negitive comment I would make is that it requires a special HD cable for hook up to a HD TV. This was not disclosed on the box or in the write up. Therefore, they could not hook it up when they opened it on Christmas Eve or even the next day which was Christmas day. This was disappointing. I would have gotten them the cable and included it in the gift if I had known.
This was my first refurbished item ever to buy! And I definitely do not regret it. I love the soundbar! it has excellent sound, good bass, and really loud for its size. I definitely recommend this item and I will absolutely consider purchasing refurbished items again.
This is great for my space and 32" HDTV. The sound is really enhanced and I can interchange with my PC Computer, DvD player and my MP3 hookup. Plays great for me. It It doesn't have a subwoofer, but with my limited space Apt, this product works wonderful for me. Since it is refurbished, I will wait to see how long will it last. Overall I will purchase another with a subwoofer for a more enhanced bass sound.
The price was right but I couldn't get it to work at all. It popped and sputtered when I connected it but no sound ever came out. The instructions were of no help at all and the support number never responded. I usually have good luck with Sony products but not this time. Maybe because the product was refurbished or the price was so low was the reason the sound bar didn't perform.
I hesitated, when I saw refurbished. My tv has the speakers facing the wall. You can't hear it. Poor design for sure. This thing makes a world of difference!! Sounds great!
I normally do not buy refurbished items but thought I would try this one because of the high ratings. The experience reinforced my feelings about refurbished items. It arrived in a box that looked beat up. Upon opening the box, I found the soundbar wrapped in bubble wrap, it did not come in a "manufacturer's" box. My husband hooked it up and it didn't do anything but hum. Thinking that it may have been that my new TV didn't work well with this soundbar, we connected it to an older TV and it did the same thing. I returned it as defective. Maybe I just got a bad one, but when I returned it I purchased another soundbar (the Energy one), which works perfectly.
This sony sound bar is high quality and user friendly, easy to set up, and now the tv volume can be lowered and the sound is easily understood. I have it connected to a vizeo tv which has a great picture but not very good sound and could not hear people talking clearly, now I don't miss a word. I should have bought it sooner and now I think I will buy another one for my other tv. The best buy for the money that's for sure!
good addition to TV speakers.
I needed something that would fit inside a cabinet and would boost the volumn and sound quality from my TV-it did both but not as well as I would liked. Still, it works great wth my limited space.
Replace your puny TV speaker with this Sony Sound Bar.
You won't be disappointed.
Sound bar is in good condition- easy to set up- sound is great- works well with my Sony TV
I recommend a sound bar to enhance sound and volume.
I wasn't expecting that much from this refurbished speaker, but I am pleasantly surprised at how much I'm enjoying the better sound quality as I watch DVDs, TV and stream movies. In earlier times, I had the latest and greatest in sound and TV, but that stuff finally wore out after many, many years and I now have a four year old Sony Bravia 32" with the worst sound! After this purchase (at long last, I found one I felt I could afford), at least I'm not trying to muffle the rattling, buzzing sound of the TV speakers/case. I only wish I'd found this right after I bought my TV.
The sound bar came with parts missing. I called Sony and spoke to an agent at lenght. He said he would send the missing parts. A week later , one of the parts came, but it was the wrong one. I called again and reordered the same missing part, and again the wrong part was sent. I had enough of Sony's incompetence and I returned it to the store.
Sound is good but the remote that came with it did not work. Called Sony got another remote and that doesn't work either. Taking sound bar back to store.
I was vwrry scared to buy a refurbished product but we are verry satisfied with this sound bar.
Easy to install and the remote works great. Much better and clearer sound than the factory TV speaker. Remote gives you the option to select the sound mode you like best. Your can select STANDARD, MOVIE or GAME/VOICE. I wish that I had purchased this months ago.
Definitely worth the price.
