All I can say is OMG !!!! I just got the Vizio sound bar and hook it up to my Vizio 55" TV and it sounds better than going to the theater. It is going to end up hook up to my 65" 3D Vizio TV and I can't wait. I have it hook up with the red/white auto cable, but I think I will get a Digital Optical Auto Cable. All I can say it is a great sound bar, and I would highly recommend it to everyone. Once you hook it up and turn it on you will say thank you for helping me pick out a great sound bar.
I have never used a sound bar and I love this one. It sounds like a stero. I had no trouble at all hooking it up to my 42" flat screen. It was worth the money.
I bought this sound bar for a Christmas gift for my dad his T.V. does not produce the best of sound being the T.V. speakers are located in the back part of the T.V.
Ever since hooking it up which was very easy he has been happy with it. We had 4 main areas for our selection which are Overall sound quality of the speaker, price, connecting, and style all have met our expectations.
FOR SMALL ROOMS YOU CAN NOT BEAT THESE PRODUCT
The sound is incredible, and it was simple to hook up. There is one thing though, my 42 inch Vizio TV is not mounted on a wall and it sits very low on the TV stand. So, the sound bar blocks the remote sensor on the TV making it a pain when you want to adjust the volume or turn the TV off. I had to raise the TV up about 2 inches by putting a board under it. So, if this might be a problem for you, measure the space from the bottom of your TV to the top of the TV stand/entertainment center. The sound bar is slightly over 3 inches high. My TV is less than 2 inches up from the top of the TV stand. That's the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars.
I just returned this soundbar today. Sounded great on tv shows. I was very disappointed when I tried watching an action blu ray movie. The soundbar would have distortion on action scenes. Even at low volumes it would still distort out. Leaving me to turn the volume up and down constantly through the movie. I thought it may have been the movie I was watching but I tried several other Blu rays over the past couple of weeks and they still have the same problem.
This sound bar produces fantastic, quality sound. Set up is a snap, if you make sure to read the accompanying pamphlet. Highly recommend this if you are listening to your televison with the tv speakers only...I had no idea how much of my movies I was missing without quality sound!
bought this sound bar for my 47" LG and it sounds awesome....set up was very easy...i would recommend using a digital optical cord instead of the RCA cord provided with this product.
This was given to me from my wife for a Christmas present. It provides the extra uNF! that the TV speakers on our Panaonic Viera couldn't. There is absolutely nothing wrong with these and would recommend to anyone looking for an improvement in TV view without breaking the bank. Well worth it!
This is a good sound bar with the composite cables that was included with the purchase. But, a great sound bar if you purchase a optical digital cable instead! The only negitive is the remote control. Its distance and angle ability seem limited.
The Vizio 40" 2.0 Sound Bar works as advertised. In the instructions
and specifications they fail to tell you the optical cable (1 x Optical (Toslink) )
required to hook-up my LG tv was not included, so buy when you purchase the sound bar.
This sound bar is a good deal for the price. My LG 42" TV only has outputs for optical (toslink) and 3.5mm earphones jack. the optical decoder built into this unit allowed me to directly connect to my TV with one optical lead. The sound is great, and a large improvement over the TV's bottom mounted speakers. The sound is near theater quality.
We purchased today the Vizio Sound Bar and LOVE IT! Great theater surround sound and though we did not install it (our son-in-law did) it took a little longer than we thought because we had to go through the DVR box. We did call the 1800 # for some advice and they were very helpful. We really like this product and it makes all the difference in the sound on our movie channels. And it was a good product for the money!
HOOK UP NOTHING TO IT.
I purchased this with the Vizio 60" thinking it would go great with it. Wow was I wrong. I guess you get what you pay for. The sound is just as bad as the speakers on the back of the tv. You have to have it turned 3/4 of the way up to hear it and then it isn't that great. The remote that comes with it is worthless. It only works when it wants to and you have to move it around for it to sense it. Save your money to buy a good system and avoid this one.
This is the 2nd Vizio Sound Bar I have purchased from Walmart.Com. The first was a model 207 32" sound bar which far exceeds my expectations. The latest sound bar is the 40" model and just like the first bar, this one exceeds my expectations. The only thing I might have changed would be to get the same model with wireless subwoofer. The bar is great by itself and installed in less than 5 minutes. For some reason the included hook up wires were faulty but I always keep RC stereo jacks in the house so I used them instead and it works perfectly. For those who don't know what I mean the RC jacks are the common red and white wires used to hook up external devices like cd player, turn table, speakers etc. Just use red and white to back of tv out and the other end into red and white on sound bar and presto,,, great sound. As I said less than 5 minutes. Ability to control volume, sts sound is a huge plus on the vizio remote. Great product for the price.
The unit sounds great and is simple to hook up.
Easy to install and sounds great...adds a nice dimension to our TV listening pleasure.
I am very pleased with my purchase. Easy to set up. The sound from the bar is three times better than my 42" Vizio HDTV. I recommend this product to everyone!
I am really satisfied with this sound bar.It sounds great compared to the tv speakers.And for the price you can't beat it.But I wanted a little more bass,but Visio say's you can't hook up a subwoofer to this sound bar.Not true,it has a sub output.So I bought a Sony SA-W2500 powered subwoofer from Walmart,and it sounds awesome,it's got a lot of bass now and the sound is crystal clear. A great buy.
