    I bought this system for the TV/PlayStation set up in the sun room. It is awesome! Great cinema sound and huge bass. Great for music, movies and gaming. I love that you can connect other devices via Bluetooth to jam out to your music library. Great sound and features for the price. I'm very impressed and happy with this purchase.

    Very surprised at how awsome this is. Great for movies, music, or game consoles and optical cable and remote are included. Easy phone pairing for bluetooth. No issues with the wireless subwooer either and for the price, why not.

    Got this soundbar as a second unit for bedroom TV. Wasn't long before it replaced my Toshiba sound bar in the living room. Still like the Toshiba but the LG does a great job of boosting voices on DVDs on it's "cinema" setting. "Music" setting has nice midrange response for listening to music. Bass is strong yet allows guitars, voices and snare drum to come through. Most soundbars I've heard don't allow suitable midrange adjustment. If I have any complaint it's minor. The shift between bass through the bar and the sub could be smoother when it crosses over. Not a big issue, but I am a little fussy about music. All in all I recommend this as a very good sounding unit in its price range. I gambled on the "open box" and got a super deal!

    I wanted an LG soundbar to sync up with my LG tv and this was a great fit for the value. I'm ready to drop a lot of money on a high-end sound system but I wanted something better than the built-in speakers with higher wattage and more bass. This soundbar fit my needs well! I also chose this model over the older models because it supported HDMI and provided 30 more watts than the model below it (330 vs 300). The sync with the LG tv was easy and I love the fact that all remotes now control the volume and power. I tested it with my smartphone and it streamed audio with quick easy setup and sounded great. This soundbar includes the cover/grill as well. The width fit my tv stand perfect (I didn't mount it to the wall, but the box includes mounting brackets). The TV is mounted but I have the soundbar on the tv stand which is what I prefer.

    Does What it's supposed to do

    I was hesitant about purchasing this sound bar. I went into the store actually looking at the Samsung model to match it to my TV, but after seeing the 2 side by side, the sound on this one was much more CRISP and the Subwoofer was more powerful than the Samsung model. The salesman even paired his phone to both models and played MUSIC for me to really test the sound. The difference was NIGHT and DAY..The LG's bass quality was ALMOST overpowering and that was with the Bass level set to 2 and the subwoofer turned all the way up. I've been nothing but pleased with this purchase. I will say, that the sound quality improves with an HDMI cable rather than the optical cord that it comes with..I will go back and purchase that in the near future to REALLY enhance my sporting event, movie watching experience in my living room..

    Better then Average Sound Quality

    As far as sound bar's go (in this price range), this one sounds pretty darn good. I like that it displays the volume level on the front facing display, that was a necessity when finalizing the purchase. The only issue I have so far is when sending sound from my Tivo via HDMI to soundbar and then to Vizio TV (w/ ARC CEC enabled), everything works great.....except when powering off. Turning off the TV, while turn off the soundbar (which I wanted) and turning on the TV will turn on the soundbar....but every single time the LG Soundbar defaults back to Optical input and I have to manually change the Soundbar back to HDMI (But if I power off the Soundbar first, before the TV and then power everything back on it stays on the HDMI port). It isn't a deal breaker because I have a Universal remote, but it is one more step in the process. It actually become an annoyance and now I have everything hooked up to my Vizio (which passes 5.1 Audio) and Audio from TV going through the Optical cable. Sounds great for the price and I am happy with it minus that one minor annoyance. Also contacted LG support and they are away of the issue.

    I was looking to boost my TV's sound output without having to make a huge investment. My TV speakers were just not cutting it. I did some research on my own and talked to a Best Buy sales rep. He was willing to spend time with me sampling a variety of sound bars--including the more expensive ones. In the end, I decided to go with the LG LAS551h model. I've had this sound bar for about a month and I'm still happy with my purchase. Setup was easy. This model will provide good quality sound in most mid-size rooms. The sound quality is crisp and the sub woofer add a lot of thumping. This model has two HDMI slots, one USB, and an optical connection. Bluetooth connection is good for about 60 feet provided there are no significant barrier between your device and the sound bar. I recommend giving it a try. If it's not a good fit you have up to 30 days to return. Just make sure you keep your receipt and the packaging.

    Good sound but why another remote

    I like the sound bar overall and I got it at a great price but what I don't want is yet ANOTHER remote. I was able to get the Vizio remote that I had to at least recognize this sound bar and it controlled the volume up/down, however I couldn't get it to truly power it up/down when the TV was. This of course cause it to stay on after the TV is off or doesn't turn it on when the TV is turning on. Of course, that least to grabbing another remote. I solved this issue by getting a Harmony programmable remote but I was not wanting to have to spend another $100 on a combo remote when most TV's allow you to program other functions easily. Why doesn't LG have better documentation on their codes to be used???

    I got this LG for $179 while on sale a couple days ago and it is going to be the one I keep. I've tried both a Sony and a Samsung model that were both $399 each and the sound quality on the LG seems as good as the other two. And all three units were rated 320W. The other two were definitely not worth the extra $220 and felt like I was throwing money away, $400 for a sound bar seems kinda crazy price for what you get. And an added bonus, the LG works perfect with my BH cable remote whereas the Samsung would not at all. I feel very comfortable with the purchase of the LG, no second thoughts.

    My sound bar comes on with my TV. Right when I start FIOS, I can't change anything for half a minute to a minute. FIOS comes on to the last station it was set to. So, for several seconds, the TV may blare out something in total contrast to what I'm about to tune to. And, mute doesn't work until that half-minute or minute completes. Originally the sound bar started at its maximum, with the TV blaring out far louder than I'd ever set it. But now it starts out turned down to nothing, and I have to use my volume control on my multi-remote to bring the sound up. I don't know how to set this, but it is now set this way, and I like it. Also, it was difficult to work out at first how to get the TV to be silent and rely on the sound bar alone, despite it being an LG TV I bought this year. It would be nice to know how to set/reset this deliberately. But now, I like it. Even my wife, who hated having a receiver and surround sound and NEVER figured out how to use it, can now use FIOS/TV and this LG sound bar when I'm not home to run it for her.

    Husband loves it, I hate it.

    My husband bought this for me for my birthday. (Yes, we are still married.) I would never even have thought I would want one of these, but I have a feeling he did. It works well as far as good sound quality and the ability to hook it up with your smart phone. But it works so well I always have to turn it down because it seems so loud. And it gives me another remote to have to look for under the couch. Maybe a gender thing? I will give it credit for doing what it is supposed to do. But, seriously guys, don't ever consider this a good gift for your wife.

    Good For Bedroom/Guest Room

    Tried a low end Samsung soundbar w/sub but would not connect with the limited connections on my older flat screen TV (Toshiba) or allow me to use my Dish remote that is in my bedroom. Began reviewing other brands and found this model was still available. My local Best Buy had one on display/connected in the store and just happened that unit was available via Open Box ($149). Connected easily (optical) and setup to use with my Dish remote was simple. The unit does turn off if I pause TV/movie after only 2 min. and have not contacted LG to see if there is a way to configure this to be longer. I would like to try the Wireless Sound Sync but that will require a newer LG TV (maybe around Christmas). Good sound and Great control over the sub made this a good purchase for my use. I would not suggest for larger rooms as the preconfigured sound modes (EQ) don't give me the fuller sound of my Samsung HW750 in my living room but for a small room (bedroom or guest room) you can go wrong.

    Excellent Sound Bar!

    This sound bar has excellent sound quality. The bass is rich and deep and the treble doesn't sound tinny. I like how the sound bar will automatically turn on when you start up your tv or other media device. However, you have to be careful that your Bluetooth devices don't automatically pair with the sound bar when you turn them on and are using the sound bar with a different device. The sound bar will automatically switch to Bluetooth and you'll have to manually switch it back.

    The sub cuts in and out if you dont have it in a good location, otherwise it sounds great. The wall mounts were a little hard to install, check your layout befor punching holes in a wall. You will also need your own screws to mount it with. After figuring out where to place the sub and how to mount the bar, everything works and sounds great. I have one in my bedroom and one in my great room and they both work very well and fill both areas with great sound. Placing the sub behind you adds a surround sound effect and helps fill the room.

    Great soundbar for my getaway room

    I was looking for a nice sounding system to use in my "Listening Room" of vintage Stereo systems. I added a LED TV and decided I need more sound than being offered from the TV speakers. I have many high end stereo speakers already in the room and I was looking for a compact system. This little unit packs some punch and the added subwoofer put it over the top on movies streamed on Netflix. Got it on sale to make it an even sweeter deal.

    For this price range, this is a great soundbar! Love the fact that it can sync nicely with our LG TV. We only need to use a single remote to control the "tv volume" and it automatically controls the soundbar's volume. The only thing that I would like to be different is the way that bluetooth devices can connect to it. There's no way to disable connectivity to devices. We live in an apartment and have had random people play music over our soundbar a few times now.

    subwoofer issue

    Overall price and sound quality is well worth the money. Item was a chrismas gift, had it installed and playing music as fast as the wrapping paper was removed. System syncs right to my vizio. Had the sound bar mounted beneath tv on wall. After watching movie with deep bass, noticed to hear a vibrating noise from the sub. Not too major of a problem, just not going to settle with a product if it has defaults. Returned to BB for a new system. Order on backorder, wasnt available in inventory. If you're seeking for a system budget friendly and good quality, this is a good choice to begin with.

    Great Soundbar. Compatible with Samsung Smart TV

    I was on the fence to buy this or the Samsung 550 series sound bar. I went with the LG more based on cost. And it's been a wonderful decision. I was worried I would lose out on features. Luckily it works well with my Samsung 8500 series TV. The TV's remote will power on and off the soundbar with the TV's power as well as control the volume using the TV's remote. The sound is deep and clear. The bass does get weaker as the volume goes up. There is also a delay on the sound coming out to th TV when it powers on. But nothing too annoying. Overall it's a great unit.

    I bought this unit not sure if I liked the idea of a sound bar when I'd had full surround systems for years. It has been AMAZING! Now I know full systems are better than bars, but you can't beat this for the price. The setup was so easy. Plug and play! I use an optical cable and the sound quality is perfect. The sub is powerful and the fact that it's wireless really opens up placement possibilities. But what's really cool is that it automatically recognizes when my TV is powered on. It also paired with my satellite remote right out of the box (just point and click). I love the Bluetooth capability for when anyone in the room wants to play music during gatherings.

    Very Nice Soundbar for the Price

    LG soundbar was very easy to connect. I used the brackets and some small steel pieces to mount it under my tv by attaching it to the TV wall mount. The sound is much better than similar soundbars from Samsung. I have a Samsung TV and it synced fine with the tv. The only negative I can give is the LED readout that says Optical whenever it's on with the TV. It should display the time or go off after awhile.
