I bought this sound bar about 2 weeks ago and completely love it. I hooked up a ps3, cable box and blu-ray player to it and switching back and forth between units is so simple, 1 button and your unit is on. I have a good size living room and the sub is actually at a -2 and center is at +4 and my wife and I just love the sound quality. I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants a home theatre without all of the speakers and wires.
Because I have a 55" Sony HDTV the sound bar did not do for me what I expected it to do. This sound bar is for a 40" - didn't know that the size of the TV made/makes a difference.
For starters purchasing off Wal-Mart.com was easier than I thought. I received free shipping so I did not have to go to the store, which would have been fine to avoid shipping cost.
Unfortunately, the product did not meet my expectations. The sound was weak and hollow. There was no bass or strong mid level. I would have received better sound by decent shelf speakers.
Back to the purchase process, I was easily able to return this to my neighborhood Wal-Mart. I brought the packaging and my e-mail receipt and they took it back without hassle. I recommend purchases through Wal-Mart.com just not this product.
I ended up buying the POLK Audio with wireless sub woofer. It was about 30% more but it sounds 100% better plus connected to my DIRECT TV remote without a problem. I had gone through about a dozen codes for the Sony and never found one that worked.
I have purchased many refurbished items and this is the frst one that didnt meet my expectations... I hooked the sound bar to my tv and it didnt work at all...very disappointec
I have a window AC near my chair and have always had to turn the volume on the TV up high to hear clearly, due to the speakers on my LG 42in. having such small speakers. Turning up the volume too high made the speakers distort the sound and actually made it harder to understand what was being said. The Sony SA40 contains 6 speakers which project the sound straight at you with good clarity and although it will get very loud, I don't have to use much volume to clearly hear what is being said and with no distortion. My wife is hard of hearing and she loves the fact she can now hear the set clearly too. Should have bought one of these a long time ago.
Very easy to connect. No regreats here.
Sound is OK, no deep base but will suffice for a smaller room
great product and great price!
Easy to connect. All equipment and wiring included. Remote a little awkward, but easy to learn. Would highly recommend this equipment.
This sound bar provides everything I expected and more.
we received our sound bar and there was a small dent in the face of it. It is lacking bass but okay sound, it does however have some white noise issues, it is quite temperamental.
Purchased this for my 32" Samsung TV in our bedroom due to the speaker sound was terrible on the TV. This soundbar is just right for our large bedroom. Doesn't blast out sound but does give the TV a great sound. Pleased with purchase. Setup was a snap. Plug into Tv and sound bar and you are set. Good addition to TV.
purchased a 40 inch TV for a really great price 249.00, fantastic picture but the sound quality wasn't the greatest, purchased the sound bar which greatly improved the sound.
SO FAR I AM SATISFIED WITH THE SOUND,,,THIS ONE IS 37.5 INCHES WIDE AND OK FOR MY 50 INCH TV IN LIVING ROOM BUT,,, A LITTLE TOO WIDE FOR USE IN MY BED ROOM 40 INCH TV ,,I AM WAITING FOR AOTHER ONE VISIO 32 INCH WHICH IS 31.5 INCHES WIDE ,ALSO ABOUT HALF THE PRICE ,,,THEN I WILL COMPARE THE SOUND OF THEM
We love the Sound
Problems with the connections. Needed adjustments in my TV for the unit to function. Also, the "batteries included" were not.
The sound bar was supposed to sync with my Sony Bravia television. Speakers on the t.v. project to the back and the sound quality is poor. I hoped the sound bar would help, but to operate it, I had to use ANOTHER remote control rather than use my Sony television control to adjust the volume and to mute the sound. I tried all options available but could not get it to work the way it was supposed to, so I returned it. Thank you, Wal Mart, for taking it back without question.
The product came broke.
After going through the pain of purchasing this item on Black Friday (when I could not complete the transaction with five different attempts) I finally was able to complete the buy the next day. The item arrived early and the set up was easy. But the unit kept turning off and I had to reboot. Also, the sound was very disappointing....best for 40 inch tvs and no higher than that. I will be returning this item to the store and do not recommend that anyone should purchase this item.
