    Good sound, poor remote

    I have found this to be exactly what I was hoping for in a soundbar - the sub works great (wireless) and overall provides a depth in sound I wasn't getting from just the TV speakers. The remote leaves a bit to be desired.... But that's minor

    Sound is pretty good. My only complaint is that I can't sync up the remote with my TCL tv, which means I do have to use the TCL remote for volume control.

    The sound bar is okay for a small room . But the remote could be way better you can't tell how high or low you are setting the volume and can't tell when features like extra bass and cinema are on me off

    Tried a couple of sound bars and chose this one because the sound was as good as a more expensive one and, most importantly, I could use either my LG remote or my cable remote to control the sound. It also turns on and off automatically when the TV is turned on or off.

    The only real issue with this sound bar is that even though it is hook to a LG TV it gets confused on which remote it wants to be used. You have to power both the TV and sound bar off to get it back in sync.

    Sound is great, no issues. Volume can not be adjusted with the tv remote, and must use the included remote.

    Bought this to go with my TCL TV and it works great. It gives the shows/movies we watch a theater like sound. The only complaint I have is the remote is too small and makes it easy to misplace.

    I got this on Black Friday, which seemed like a good deal because it was $120 before tax and the "normal price" was $279.99. I have actually seen it at the store for the higher price, so it's not one of those bogus normal prices. Anyways, I used this with my new Samsung NU8000 TV and it works great. In fact, sound started coming out of the soundbar as soon as I plugged it in! While the sound quality is good, the subwoofer is a bit weak, but you get what you pay for. If you want a BIG sound, you might need a $400-500 soundbar or speaker system. The remote is good, and it should be, because you might have trouble controlling the volume with your TV remote because there is only an optical audio cable connection (no HDMI for HDMI ARC or other connection). However, I was able to connect to the soundbar via Bluetooth and control it via my TV remote in that way. Unfortunately, I noticed that the Bluetooth connection needed to be re-established quite often. I am not sure if this is because of the TV or the soundbar. However, it's better than nothing, as I had read online that a soundbar with only an optical connection could never be controlled via TV remote. I hadn't tried to use the soundbar remote to control the entire TV, but I'd rather not since I like the size, shape and features of the TV remote.

    This product was easy to set up and you definitely notice when it is not on. It typically goes on when you turn on the TV, but unfortunately sometimes it doesn't and you have to turn it on with the remote it came with. Not a big deal, but not sure why that happens. The sound is definitely better when it is on, so we are happy with the product overall.

    This soundbar did not meet my expectations. It had a very hollow sound. The volume control did not work well at all once I connected it to the TV. I returned it and bought a sony.

I can definitely understand how frustrating it may have been returning the soundbar shortly after purchasing.

    Sounds good, set up easy but disconnects from wifi often. You also can't control the TV volume with regular remote when the speaker is on, even with an LG tv. @@@@@@@@ Maybe there is a setting for this? @@@@@@@ I would purchase again as long as it was on sale.

    This was an easy soundbar to setup with minimal fusing around. The subwoofer instantly connects so no weird programming or anything. Decent quality for movies and tv, soso with music. I dont know how useful the soundbar remote actually is as it has a weird interface but I control volume through my xfinity remote so itll just be set up once with the soundbar remote then thrown into a drawer.

    This 300 watt sound bar system just can't be beat for the money. Easy to setup and sounds 100% better than speakers on my flat screen. My only complaint is the remote control will not sink up with my Dish remote. That means keeping up with another remote control at all times. LG should fix that....

    Improves tv sound. Much clearer with the sound bar. Only issue is you have to use both remotes as I can't find a way to link it with cable remote. I Don't understand why LG would put out products without a manual. Google it and you can download a 25 page manual.
