    didn't want a subwoofer due the size of the room so this was a good option, easy to set up but could never sync the remote to the cable service.

    Spectacular sound and easy to set up. Simple to sync to other devices. It does fall out of sync from time to time but overall very satisfied.

    Bose, in my opinion is vastly over rated! . Sound is fair at best. Little or no bass on low end. Also, hard to sync with remote. It has to be lined perfect with tv & remote to not get out of sync.

    Bought this because of name brand and reviews. Got it home and was disappointed within 48 hours. Sound was ok, had to use the remote as it doesnt sync with tv or cable. . That only was frustrating. . brought it back!

    This is a great product. It is very easy to set up. The sound quality is so much better than my Vizio TV alone. For this price it can't be beat. That said, it is a little lacking in bass department and the remote control does get out of sync with the TV & Satellite box, frequently. It does become annoying but a quick re-sync and it is good to go again. I am glad I got this product to use until I have the money to get the Bose Soundtouch 300 & Acoustimass 300 Wireless Bass Module. I may even tie in some of the Bose 300 surround sound modules as well. This speaker is a great introduction to Bose products.

    An Unmitigated DISASTER

    The advertised "easy set up" (confirmed by some customers) is true only in SOME cases. Depends on your TV. I bought the Bose Solo 5 and attempted to connect it to my (relatively new) Sony Bravia Digital TV (a very popular model TV) and couldn't. Spent (believe it or not) over four hours trying to troubleshoot the problem with 3 different Bose customer service representatives in Manila before finally giving up and returning the product. Could not get the Solo 5 to sync with my TV...no sound produced. Tried everything, even running back to the store for a new optical cable because one of the product specialists believed it to be a defective cable...which was incorrect. Probably the most frustrating experience of trying to hook up an electronic product in my life. One of their "specialists" suggested I send the product to a service center for repair (though I had purchased it only 4 hours earlier! @@@@@@@ All-in-all a terrible experience.

      Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with the Solo 5 experience. We are disheartened that you were not able to complete your setup after speaking with several technical support representatives. This is not typical for our support team and we sincerely apologize.

      This system is designed to be easy to set up, as you've noted, and it is very important to us to get you enjoying this system as soon as possible. Please email us at product_support@bose.com and include as much as detail as possible and we'll figure this out with you: name, address, make/model of your TV and any other components used in the setup (cable box, DVD, etc.). We look forward to working with you. Bose

    I live in an apartment so I didn't need a separate subwoofer. This sound bar is perfect for my space. Excellent bass for movies without worrying about the neighbors feeling it in the walls. There is also a dialogue only mode for when you're watching the news and things of that nature. The remote is universal so you can program it to turn everything on and off at the same time. Unfortunately it gets out of sync sometimes. I don't like that it doesn't have a volume indicator. 1-10 type thing. Just a little light that flashes. It's a little pricey but bose usually is. It definitely has the bose sound.
