Great sound bar Review by Ant

I purchased a Vizio S3821 with sub-woofer for the 55" M series in the family room loved it. Which made me purchase the S3820 for my 55" M series in the master bed room.

Awesome sound for my bedroom and video games Review by Gunwing

I was vary skeptical of sound bars for about 4 years, mostly because the surround sound functions had not been fully implamented, and the sound quality was too varied for their higher prices, my older Logitech sound system was giving out and when I got my new HDTV it was not compatible. after 4 years of having too much base, almost no mid range, and a veritiy of sound issues I pulled the trigger last Christmas was at Costco and listend to the higher end model of this sound bar and loved it... bass when needed, not when it was not... I bought this 38 inch model and it hooked up easy instructions were easy to understand and it sounds fantastic... TV never sounded so clean and clear with footsteps, and big explosions, and even lasers sound perfect... My biggest thing I love is the separate volumes for bass, and treble I leave them at the defaults, but it sounds fantastic, playing BF4 on my Xbox one sounds just right with big explosives carrying the punch they need without blowing my family out of the water in other rooms, StarWars my ultimate Blue Ray test movie was perfict, lightsabers sound viberant in the mid range and lows, and lasers and footsteps are easily heard, voices have bass when they should and not when they shouldn't... I could not ever be more satisfied with this product...

Nice sound Review by bfunk1978

It sounds nice enough (a little boomy in the lower-midrange but not bad) and works well with my cable box and PS3. Only down side is that it's apparently not compatible with my RCA TV's coax digital output. I blame the TV more than the sound bar, though, and I'm hoping the bug will get fixed in firmware. For the price it's great.

awesome sound bar. Review by JT

I had a Phillips sound bar that was cheap but it worked great and have it to my parents and bought this sound bar to go with my Vizio smart tv and I love it. Only problem is that I want a subwoofer to go with it now but i can't seem to find a wired subwoofer to plug into my sound bar. But i love this product and will love even more when i find a subwoofer to go with it. Vizio has great products and are one of the best choices if not the best choice when it comes to home theater systems.

Like it! Review by Geo

We got a Vizio 70 inch smart TV last Christmas and bought the Vizio 38 inch 2.0 sound bar this year. I'm very impressed with both of these products. The price was very reasonable and the picture and sound quality are superior!
