    I am super impressed and borderline obsessed!

    I did a bit of research before deciding on a soundbar and knew nothing about them prior to my purchase. Our television would have super quiet dialogue and then suddenly sound like it was full blast with any other noises without touching a single button! I read that there were 3 settings on this (voice, cinema, and bass blast) to help remedy the issues my television was having, and to seal the deal for me the unit was on an amazing sale! I could not be more impressed by the sound quality and output that this soundbar and sub provide!!! It sounds like we have surround sound somehow, which is unheard of from a single front speaker/sub combo! Our living room is not exactly small, so you really get a lot of bang for your buck out of this unit! Another thing that really added to the wow factor for me was the fact that an optical sound cord was included in the box! It seems that necessary cords are never free with products that require them anymore, so this was a definite plus!!! Set-up was a breeze and changing between devices (like hooking the soundbar up to my phone during afternoon study sessions and changing the unit output settings back to play television audio at night) is as easy as pushing a button on the remote! LG did a fabulous job with the execution of this product hands down!!!

    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.

    I had pretty low expectations for this thing. I bought it on Black Friday for a total steal, but even then thought that it would only be marginally better than the speakers in my new Vizio TV. Boy was I wrong. This thing BOOMS. My four-year-old son loves to feel the subwoofer shaking the house (though I endeavor to be careful with his hearing, as you should!). The quality of the audio is great. You're not going to get $2000 worth of audio quality out of this thing, but you'll certainly feel more immersed in whatever you're watching. The subwoofer produces loud, foundation-shaking sound, so I've had to tweak the audio to keep it down a little bit. From a visual perspective the soundbar is decent-looking. I've seen other sound bars where the audio level is shown to the user via LEDs that light up when the audio level is increased or decreased. This bar provides no indication of the current audio level which is sometimes slightly problematic as I want to be sure I don't turn my TV on and get surprised by blaring audio. I'd totally buy this again, though perhaps not at full price. If you can pick this up on sale, I totally recommend it.

    We bought this to replace an old Sony 5.1 surround sound wired system. My fiancé couldn’t stand all the wires spread out around the room. We really cannot tell much of a difference in sound quality. The old system did have more options i.e. cinema, concert, drama, horror, etc. This system only has a couple of pre-programmed settings (cinema, bass blast) but it’s plenty for our home-use purposes. It was also significantly less expensive when on sale for the big game than the old system. Once we figured out the input button was actually the “F” button on the remote it was smooth sailing. My one beef with the product would be the overall lack of visual indication when changing the volume or other settings on the remote. It’s sort of a guessing game confirmed by what you hear when changes are made. But you really can’t beat this quality sound in an apartment or small home for the price.

    Amazing sound quality

    This sound bar has amazing sound quality! I have it hooked up to my 65 LG 4K UHD Tv and the sound is phenomenal. It has a crisp and distinct sound with every show or movie you watch. You feel like you are immersed within the movie and are watching it in a theatre. I love the sleek look of it as well. It is not too bulky so it fits right in front of the tv on and entertainment stand or sits well alone. I would recommend this sound bar and not worry about upgrading to a bigger more expensive lg because they actually have just about the same sound quality. The only difference would be more speakers provided. If you are looking for just a sound bar and small speaker, this is the way to go. It does not disappoint!

    Good Soundbar/Subwoofer For the Price

    I purchased this Soundbar/Subwoofer for my bedroom; I always like a bit more depth to sound than little TV speakers offer. I am very pleased with my purchase; very easy to set up (maybe a minute; 2 at the most) and they sound great. I especially like the sub; not that I like booming bass, but it fills in the total sound. The subwoofer is wireless (but is powered so you need to plug into a socket); I have it across the room from the TV in a corner. I also appreciate the auto on/off; as I usually set the timer on the TV to go off after I fall asleep. I also have it paired via Bluetooth with the Echo I have in the bedroom and t handles music nicely (I always use Pandora for online music). I have a big amplifier surround setup with my main TV (Denon amp) and this does not compare to the sound from that set up, but it is perfectly fine for the bedroom or a smaller room. Also, lately it seems I have been buying LG products, and I am very happy with LG.

    This is my first buying experience for a sound bar, as I never had one. I was skeptical about, whether to buy a brand who are leader in speaker and sound system. But then somehow I ended up buying this one on Thanksgiving by seeing the price and rating. Believe me my bet on this paid up well. There is no matching with this price and quality. Very easy to connect. As I connected and played for the first time with full bass with reasonable sound first my 2 year toddler was surprised and then he started dancing. I got something extra ordinary with just 120$. I would recommend anyone to buy this product. Only improvement area is they could have given a good manual on how to operate the different mode using the remote control.

    I bought this for my parents as the speakers on their tv are blown because neither of them can hear well. I installed the sound bar and subwoofer in 5 minutes. The directions are clear and simple. I would give this 4 stars because the extra functions, like auto on and off, are not easily explained in the manual, so you have to download the digital user guide, which while easy enough, would have confused my older parents. So if that were simpler that would be better, but because it’s so easy to set up, use, and because I do love the auto on off function now that I’ve figured it out, it gets 5.

    This lg soundbar is great. I don’t know what the fuss is all about. This thing almost set itself up. This thing sounds awesome and I Am very picky when it comes to sound. I have sub behind couch about 14ft away. It picked it right up and has not dropped sound. I think some of the issues is how you have TV set up. That was a little tricky but not related to sound bar. I have a Samsung tv, go to sound and select optical from menu and the remote controls soundbar and tv speakers shut off automatically. This bar is well worth the sale price of $129 or $149. This has some serious power. Love it 100%. The Best Buy kid sold me on this. The store unit was down so I didn’t get to hear, I went on employees reccomendation and bought it. Glad I did.

    This LG - 2.1-Channel 300W Soundbar System with Wireless Subwoofer works very well. It fills the void created by rear facing flat screen tv speakers. Has enough power to give an enhanced viewing experience, specially for action movies. Base sound is good for the price. Bought it on Black Friday 2018. Very good buy. Not to be confused with a 500 watt plus system! It will not blow you out of a room, but it serves its purpose. I’m highly satisfied with this purchase. Please note that if you wish to add wireless Bluetooth speakers you need to move up a few models as this one Does Not allow for it. Would highly recommend this system if you’re wanting something that’s budget friendly.

    This Soundbar is excellent! It easily connects to any TV via optical cable and honestly for the price it has amazing sound quality. Pros: Easy to connect Excellent sound quality. Deep bass from wireless sub Has a few quality sound presets Cons: There is no HDMI arc connection. There is no wi-fi so you won’t be able to change settings using a visual interface on your phone like some other soundbars. The Bluetooth connection for the sub seems to drop out if sub isn’t next to the bar. I had mine next to my couch and it constantly dropped connection. Overall it’s a great Soundbar for the price!

    Got this LG - 2.1-Channel 300W Soundbar System with Wireless Subwoofer that it said only sold by Best Buy. gave it a try, and was very pleased. Hooked it up to the Optical port on my LG 55" TV and at first didn't sound great. but it was my error . After correcting my mistake, this thing is awesome and loud ,and makes watching movies like you are in the room of whats going on, on the screen, and football games like you went to the stadium. Very impressed with this. 300 w of power sure sounds good. I did not get this for free, nor did I get paid to make this review.

    We are using this with our 4k LG TV. Because the TV is so thin and the speaker is on the back, the sound quality is not good. We wanted the sound quality to be as awesome as the picture quality, so we purchased this soundbar and subwoofer. Not only does the soundbar work very well at increasing the volume, but the subwoofer creates much better bass than the surround sound system we previously had. Everytime we watch TV now, it’s like we are in a movie theater. We do have a fairly small living room, though, so that might make a difference. It’s works great for us though!!!!

    Awesome Affordable Soundbar System

    This soundbar system definitely exceeded my expectations. I had previously bought a soundbar on sale for 99 that I ended up returning so my expectations were not high for this. I was wrong ! The sound is amazing. The woofer really kicks. I put it in cinema mode and everything sounds amazing. It does come with an optical cable in the box but that cable looked chintzy so I bought one of the thicker braided gold plated optical cables and used that to hook it up to my TV. I definitely recommend buying this while it is still on sale because at 129 you can't beat that deal.

    This bundle is awesome -- superb sound quality and volume with few pre-defined settings. This is my first sound bar and I have it for few months now and I'm enjoying it! It's just perfect for the living room and the volume can go high without distorting the sound quality. Just go easy with the volume and subwoofer/base as it may annoy your neighbors during late nite viewing but hey it has a 'night mode' setting so it's perfect by just one-click! It doesn't come with optical wire but it's still more than worth the price1

    I finally broke down and got a soundbar after reading the reviews here. My current LG TV's sound is less than ideal so wanted something to help me hear speech in movies/shows. I'm amazed at the sound coming from this thing. I even thought someone was in another room talking but it was coming from the soundbar. It's changed watching tv, at least from a sound aspect. I highly recommend this. Also i hooked my phone up via Bluetooth, man does it get loud. I have nothing negative to say about this system.

    I’m not a sound guru, but this replaced old Polk Audio bar I had-the sound quality is superior to that and for me does a great job of providing sound to my living room with great sound-with the subwoofer (places about 12-15 feet away) it provides a very good surround sound atmosphere. It handles bluetooth from my phone to play music throughout the house very well also. The price tag was made me purchase this to pair with new Sony TV-it’s thin enough to fit under the screen so it takes up virtually no space on stand. Would highly recommend at the $125 price point you can’t beat that!

    I purchased this sound bar for my dad and was so impressed with the sound decided to buy one for our 60 inch Samsung 4k TV. Sound is excellent and for the price you can’t go wrong. There are few minor issues and they are (1) Sound levels do not show on TV screen (2) Works with our Cox Contour remote but you have to turn power on and off from LG remote (3) Has great woofer levels but would be nice to have additional tone adjustments. Overall great addition to our TV.

    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.

    Yeah, so I was playing Red dead 2 and enjoying the bass and sound quality of Arthur's voice when I get a knock on the door. Turns out it was shaking my downstairs neighbor's condo. So, now I'm moving out to buy a house, but even when I turned the bass off.. amazing quality. My boyfriend and I love it. I was skeptical because I dont know too much about speakers or soundbars, but if you're just looking for an overall good piece of equipment. Defineitly check it out.
