      Decent sound and reasonable price- my TV is housed within a built in and the sound was dampened to a point. This unit has helped. Setup became more involved/time consuming when I did have to contact the manufacturer of this unit AND TV to get assistance into a TV sub menu to adjust settings to 'turn on' this speaker for it to work. The Power OFF (Red) and ON (Amber) lights are pretty close in color at a glance and sometimes easy to miss that the sound bar is turned off rather than on. Worst two features: It requires two remotes now- TV control and the sound bar remote to control volume only- major hassle. AND, there is NO indication of volume level (scale, numbers, etc.) to allow you to know where it is or was set at- you have to go by the sound level coming out which of course changes constantly. All expected at this price point, I suppose. If the above is not a concern, you will likely be satisfied and probably can't beat the price.

      Good Sound Bar, bad remote

      I bought this sound bar because it was difficult to hear the TV sound from the built in speakers which were on the bottom of the set. The sound bar was on sale for $45 so I thought what can I lose. Set up was easy and the sound improvement was really noticeable. This speaker is not for audiophiles but is a step up from the built in ones. My only problem is with the remote, it is a POS. When I pushed any of the + buttons (volume, bass, etc.) the TV changed channels instead. Luckily I have a Logitech Harmony remote and was able to set up this speaker to it and everything works fine. Otherwise, I would have had to deal with customer service and did not look forward to that.

      Even though I was not familiar with this brand they did not disappoint. Nice little soundbar with all the audio adjustments you need. Great sound improvement over those tiny flat screen tv speakers. Don't watch tv without a soundbar! You'll never go back to poor, old fashioned tv audio again.

      This sound bar is used with my TV and while listening to Pandora. It has been very helpful with dialogue on the TV. The trick is to mute the TV or smartphone and rely on the soundbar. The installation instructions are minimal, but workarounds are pretty easy to find.

      I was so looking forward to the speaker but was utterly disappointed when I got it and found the only cable included was an optic cable which the television I bought it for didn't have. So the tv I do have it attached to I dont feel gives me the sound that the item description claims.

      My wife Shelly and I bought this sound bar because we were having trouble hearing our tv. IT HAS CHANGED EVERYTHING. I can hear what people are saying without having to rewind over and over. I love it, and highly recommend this sound bar.

      Very disappointed in this purchase. Have the optical cable hooked up from the cable box to TV and sound is nothing what I thought it would be. My TV goes louder than the sound bar.

        Rlmcveigh, we're sorry to hear you aren't totally satisfied with the soundbar. We'd be curious to know if you tried using any other setup as perhaps the optical option is not the best for your setup. We'd be happy to walk through options with you at 1-888-999-4215 or prodinfo@dpiinc.com. iLive
