Satisfied Review by Sly

I'm pleased with the soundbar the quality is impressive I wish it was a little louder though. My only complaint is the remote I wish it had LED lighting. Good job Vizio!

Superb!!! Review by KenL

This Visio sound bar outperforms all others in its price range, hands down!!!! The set-up was simple, and everything worked first time out of the box without any glitches! Being able to program the sound bar to my existing cable remote was a snap, and one of my reasons for buying this unit, among others. The most important fact about this unit is the sound quality, and let me tell you it's superb!! Having so many settings for sound lets you fine tune the audio perfectly for any room. I give Vizio 5 Stars for a great product!

Great soundbar for price Review by JJ

Setup was more difficult than I had anticipated. I called support for assistance. Needed to use Digital Optical in order to get audio. Sound Bar itself is great. Subwoofer has great sound but audio is fading in and out when setting up and 'pairing' with Sound Bar. I'm still working out the kinks with that. Overall, I'm pleased with the purchase.

Vizio came through with this one! Review by Srobinson281

Not a fan of Vizio until now! This sound bar exceeded my expectations for the price. The overall look of the sound bar and weight is very nice and it has a sturdy feel. The subwoofer box could have a better design and have a little more power but for a bedroom or living room it more than gets the job done. The LEDs on the sound bar which indicate the settings are a nice touch and the light color matches my Xbox One logo. This system also syncs right in to any tv or setup that you may have so there's no need to have all same brand items to make it work, and there's no need for multiple remotes, my Xfinity/Comcast remote or the voice control on my Xbox One puts the sound bar to sleep and adjusts the volume. This sound bar has a lot of options for tuning including a dialogue option which helps to increase the sound of voices in movies or tv to balance everything out. Bluetooth is a great feature as well. If you're skeptical about this system because of the brand, look beyond that because this system will without a doubt impress you, especially for the price!
