    Excellent sound

    It has an amazing sound and the wireless sub adds that little extra to make it that much better. It's also great to have all of the features such as the night time mode. Great product.

    Great system!

    The value of this speaker system is fantastic, especially if you will pair it with a Vizio tv. The sub is punchier than I expected, and having a center channel really helps when watching movie or tv shows and you need to push the dialogue a bit.

    Huge improvement over TV speakers

    |
    Posted .

    It's such a dramatic improvement over the standard Vizio TV speakers! It actually sounds quite good. It has a nice warm tone to it, like those old all-in-one Radio Consoles / Record Players from the 70s. Overall, I felt this was a gamble, but after setting it up I was pleasantly surprised. The biggest issue I had with the built in TV speakers was it was hard to make out the dialog. This soundbar makes the dialogue crisp and clear. One issue was that the original one I purchased had a blown out speaker on the right side. You could tell it was blown because as soon as the volume went past 4, the sound became distorted. Upon inspection, the driver had pushed through the cone! BestBuy was quick to give me a replacement, since I was within the 15 day return period, and I quickly added the four year GeekSquad protection. I would recommend that if you plan to connect to it via Bluetooth, make sure you have the volume check / limiter enabled on your phone, just to be safe. Also, given the quality of the internals, get the four year Geek Squad protection, which at the time of this writing was $34.99. In any case, I think this was a good purchase, and really improves the audio quality, and therefore the viewing experience as well. The front room feels like a mini-teathre now!

    Excellent for the price

    I really did not want to get a soundbar. However, with my room and placement of the screen etc, it just made more sense than attempting to do a proper surround system in such tight quarters. So far, this bar has been quite impressive. Bass is responsive and not overwhelming, the mock surround is better than what I've experienced in the past, and dialog is crisp, clear, and sounds great. It's also great for music.

    Really impressed!

    |
    Posted .

    I bought this because the speakers on my new Vizio TV stunk and the price was quite nice. I didn't really pay attention to the SmartCast feature but it turns out it's pretty convenient and I'm actually using it. The center channel/speaker makes a HUGE difference in movies and anything else. The clarity of dialog is such a welcome addition and I'm glad it has its own dedicated level. The overall sound quality is great and there's more tonal range than you might expect. The sub is really impressive - I've had others the same size that left a lot to be desired but if you dial this in to suit what you're listening to, oh man, it's great. I do wish there were more presets beyond movie/music and I wish Night mode made more of a difference because having to tweak things and turn off the sub depending on the situation gets a little old. One last thing... This thing can get LOUD. I live in an apartment so I can't crank it as much as I'd like to sometimes but with what I have done the sound is great. With everything dialed in I can get an awesome, full, punchy sound or something crystal clear depending on the source. I'm VERY happy with my choice and I'm actually kinda thankful my TV had such terrible speakers!

    A Serviceable Soundbar

    |
    Posted .

    I know the general rule of thumb for most home theatre enthusiasts is to buy your setup bit by bit. Start with the receiver and left and right front speakers. Then add in a center channel speaker. Then start looking at rear speakers. And if you're really an enthusiast, you can add in ceiling speakers! However, not everyone absolutely needs an elaborate speaker set up. Not everyone wants to take a week to install such setups, and not everyone wants to spend the money for such a setup. I certainly want to do this in the future, but my current living situation begs for me to stick with a soundbar. This soundbar was chosen for two reasons: Chromecast built-in and 3.1 set up. I've seen lots of 2.1 soundbars and 5.1 sound bars out there but it seems oddly rare to see a 3.1 setup. I jumped when this went on sale. The sound gets loud, the bass rumbles, it's exactly what I wanted. There's enough configuration in there to help if you notice audio sync issues and Chromecast built-in makes it easy to play music. While there are separate "music" and "movie" modes, I leave the suondbar on "movie" mode all the time. Music mode makes music feel a little too flat for my liking. If your TV speakers were as low volume and bad as mine are, this is soundbar is a no brainer.

    Great Sound, Strong Bass

    |
    Posted .

    I bought this item for my parents for Christmas to replace an older Vizio soundbar. It was definitely better in providing quality sound compared to an older (and lower model) version. I would buy this for myself but since I live in an apartment (they live in a house) I know the bass would be too strong and cause noise complaints. You can turn off the Bluetooth connected subwoofer, but that defeats the point of buying the set--unless you plan to use it in an apartment setting during a time when you know your neighbors aren't home. Based on the TV programming there could be a considerable difference in bass amplification. For instance, we streamed the TV series 'Hannibal' on Amazon Video and the high bass usage in the TV's soundtrack would make it uncomfortable to listen to due to unexpected increases in volume due to the bass. However, after watching numerous other shows and movies (both streaming and on conventional Blu-Ray/DVD) we found this to be a minor occurrence with the bass being 'overwhelming'. If I had my own house I would definitely buy this item for myself, but due to my apartment setting I'll have to forego such a purchase. Overall, a great product though and would recommend.

    Excellent home theater system

    |
    Posted .

    I recently upgraded my television, and I wanted to compliment that purchase with a home theater. Naturally, I wanted the biggest, badest, ear-bleeding thing in the store. However...like most of us, I could not afford it. With that said I purchased this Vizio system. I was very surprised when I sampled it in the store. Like most BB's, this unit was out on the floor, and not the best for acoustics. I doubt most people live in big warehouses where the sound isn't close to how would sound in a home. Knowing this, I took what I heard with a grain of salt, and would return it if I were disappointed. When I got home and set everything up, I was impressed. The sound bar and the subwoofer delivered exactly what I wanted for the value. My living room isn't very large, and it's tiled. The room isn't desirable for listening to a symphony. But if you're looking for excellent clarity while watching sports, or listening to rumbling explosions and gunfire, I think you will be pleased. I enjoy this addition to my home and all of the features the Vizio sound bar has to offer! It's great, and I think anyone would love having one in their home.

    Deep Bass

    |
    Posted .

    I bought this for my 55" Vizio TV. They work great together over ARC. Turning on the TV automatically activates the soundbar and the TV remote adjusts soundbar volume and power. The sound is great and the bass is phenomenal. The high and mid range tones are good as well with nice clear voice dialogue for movies, news and sporting events among others. The only thing keeping me from rating it perfect are a few little quirks. 1) The bass can get a little too deep at times, even at low volume and despite lowering bass on the soundbar remote. In some instances, I've had to disable the subwoofer to lower bass. 2) There really isn't a quiet volume for late night or quiet viewing. Sometimes, I just want a nice quiet volume but it goes from super quiet to moderate loud. 3) The mute acts flaky sometimes. If I lower the volume all the way or hit mute, it sometimes gets stuck in mute and I have to play with the volume to get sound to return. As you can see, all of these are pretty minor but just annoying enough to me to drop a star. Regardless, compared to other Vizio soundbars that I'd priced, this set, is a great bang for the buck value.

    Great 3.1 verizon soundbar

    |
    Posted .

    After reading both positive and negative reviews, i decided to take a chance. Glad i did. Can say nothing negative about this sound bar.With 2 speaker sound bars when you raise the volume to hear dialogue, you also increase background noise. Still cant hear dialogue.With the 3 speaker soundbar, left right & center , you can increase dialogue,(center ),without increasing background noise. Just what we wanted. We love it. For the money i don't think you can beat it. As soon as i find another open box deal on this speaker i am going to buy another one.

    Exactly what I needed

    |
    Posted .

    I bought this because my previous soundbar and TV lacked adequate input and output connections to support all of my components without using an AV switchbox. When my child needed to add her Xbox to the mix, I wanted to simplify my system. This soundbar supports everything that I need. I still have to change the inputs on the soundbar and TV for the use of each component due to the lack of HDMI ARC support on my TV, but it's a much improved setup than the previous configuration. I love that the soundbar not only supports so many types of connections, but also provides the cord for all of them. I didn't use them all, but squirrelled them away for future use, and future new TV. :) The sound quality is great for our needs and I like that I can set the sound bar to "night" mode to reduce the bass setting without actually changing the bass level. This was a great deal for our family!

    Sounds amazing

    Posted .

    This thing is awesome. I bought it because it is a Vizio which matches my TV. When I use any remote that I use for the TV, it also adjusts the sound on the sound bar. The sound quality is amazing. Love it to add more sound to my living room. Much better than the sound on the TV alone when watching movies.

    Good starter soundbar

    |
    Posted .

    Bought this soundbar setup during a sale. I was a little leary about it, but I was attracted to the 3.1 (center channel speaker) feature. This soundbar is impressive when it comes to dialogue from movies and TV shows. You can have it at moderate volume levels and still hear clear voices and effects. The Google cast feature is a good perk as well, although it only works for music. No chance in casting video content to the device. There are two issues during my ownership. The setup was a little complicated. It took me a few tries to get it up and running. Also, the subwoofer is way too boomy. I can see purists cutting the bass all the way down to the minimum to get accurate sound. Overall its a good soundbar. Just be prepared to be a little overwhelmed on the bass.

    Good bass.

    Posted .

    I bought this to supplement the sound on my Sony TV. It has a center channel you can turn up to hear dialogue better in those movies where the sound effects seem to drown it out. You can't beat the price for the sound. I play music from my phone on this and when you jack the volume, it's plenty loud. If you lived in an apt, I suspect the neighbors would get grouchy if you played music at 75% for an extended period. When I first got it going I was playing with the settings and the bass spooked my dog into thinking there was a thunderstorm. The HDMI ARC is cool, too, it connects directly to the same port type on your TV if equipped. The remote takes some learning, but after five minutes with the manual, I had all the different modes and adjustments figured out. Nice unit for the money! Comparable units from the other big brands were +$100 over the price of this unit.

    Best sound bar on the market for the price

    |
    Posted .

    this sound bar is just plain amazing for the price. I live in an upstairs apartment unit, so I was looking for something that had quality sound but I didn't need to have picture frames falling off the walls with the intense volume. this sound bar sounds absolutely crystal clear at all levels of volume, I cranked it up a few times and there was zero distortion and the bass was perfectly matched! such a great sound bar! has everything you could ask for with hdmi arc and Bluetooth connectivity. couldn't be happier. to put the price in perspective I've had Bluetooth speakers that cost more than this and come on .... you really think a Bluetooth speaker could compete with this thing on any level? had it for a few months and not one issue. super easy setup as well.

    Price meets power

    |
    Posted .

    When I went into the store I had a working budget of $400 and asked the rep to show me a few options. This was 1 of 2 that fit my criteria. I decided to give this one a try and I have no "ragrats", not even 1 letter. The highs are sufficient but I still utilize a bit of my tv volume for some programs (not all). The lows and bass are great for such a small sub. I really like the smart device features with bluetooth capabilities to control it with my phone. I would recommend for the buyer who wants budget to meet performance.

    Sound quality is perfect

    Posted .

    I wasn't quite sure what to expect from a soundbar, but I'm super pleased. The subwoofer makes music sound excellent. The only downside is this one doesn't come with the tweeters that sit behind you, but somehow the bar does a pretty good job of "surrounding" you with sound. I also love that it pairs with my TV, so I have one remote for everything and it automatically turns on and off with my TV.

    Should have gotten the 5.1 version (again)

    |
    Posted .

    A while back, I purchased an almost identical set that came with two surround speakers. That one performed well enough that I decided to purchase another soundbar for the other room. The space I put it in didn't really NEED surround sound, so I opted to save a few bucks and get the 3.1 version instead. I'm not sure if the quality isn't the same on this revision, or if the lack of surround speakers really makes that big of a difference, but this set sounds remarkably hollow compared to the 5.1 set. It's still better than the TV speakers, but if I had to do it over, I'd get the surround model (again).

    Sounds very very good.

    From deep bass to voice it handles it all. I am older and have some trouble hearing voices, this unit is great for hearing the voice. It is average in size easy to set up. It comes with all the cords you could need. Even an optical cord. It has a pattern to place on the wall to wall mount the speaker. It is all in a mat black color and does not have a ton of flickering lights. The only issues I have are these two. 1) The light on the remote is not bright enough to see the options. 2) The material on the speaker is not very sturdy so I am handling it very carefully. Other than that this is a great sound system.
