    excellent sound

    bought this to replace an older unit. our living room is 600 sf and we can hear it well from the dining area. taking awhile to get used to it turning on when we turn on the tv, does not sync with our tv volume. as we forget and turn on the 8 speaker sound system we have had for years. It was also on terrific sale.

    Decent Sound, TV Remote Compatible, Mounting issue

    I have a 32” Samsung Smart TV in a room with exercise equipment. When using some of the equipment I had trouble hearing dialogue clearly through the standard TV speakers. Rather than spending twice the amount for a TV with better sound quality, I added this sound bar to resolve that issue, which it has. I bought this on sale at Best Buy, and as a price match. A pretty good deal. I can control the volume and power “on” (but not “off) with the TV or cable remote and I can stream Bluetooth devices. The biggest issue is that the mounting bracket screw holes on the bottom of the sound bar are 17 3/4” on center apart, rather than the standard 16”. This means only 1 screw could typically hit a wall stud while the other hole in the wall will need an anchor. And, depending on your TV mounting, it may not be able to be centered with your TV (unless you use two wall anchors).
    So close to this being a 4-star or higher item but this is actually an issue so it gets only 3-stars.

    Great sound – no wifi, no ios app, sync issues

    The sound quality is excellent but I’m stuck to 2 remotes my Sony TV and Samsung sound bar.
    1. It is not Google Home compatible – i.e. it cant get on the home wifi network.
    2. I cant control it with my iphone – it requires android device for blutooth control
    3. I connected with with Optical cable and there is a sound sync issue that does not go away even after I used the sync settings

    worked great for 5 months and then it died

    I bought this soundbar and it worked great for 5 months and then it stopped working. Spent an hour on chat trying to resolve but nothing worked.

    Bluetooth nightmare–even with Samsung TV

    I wanted ZERO Bluetooth compatibility problems, so I shopped only Samsung soundbars to go with new Samsung TV. And this soundbar fails Bluetooth function. First, the Sound Mode on TV intermittently grayed out if speaker did manage to connect–sometimes I could, and other times I could not, change from ‘standard’ and ‘surround’ using Samsung universal remote. Upon contacting chat, I was advised only the soundbar remote could perform that function. This is false since I previously had capability and even set equalizer levels with universal remote. Now, the soundbar un-pairs EVERY time TV is powered off for extended period of time. Upon contacting chat again, they advised to use HDMI cable–NOT a solution. I so want to return this but movers erroneously threw away packaging.

    Great little soundbar and easy set up

    Purchased this soundbar from Best Buy on a sale for a steal of $100. My bedroom tv was recently wall mounted to save space, but all the audio would project down the hall way because of the rear firing speakers. This solved all my issues. Connected via the HDMI ARC and boom…excellent sound of the price and seamlessly works with my Samsung TV so only one remote is needed for my whole set up now. I only wish that this soundbar was more of a slim profile or smaller since it’s not intended to fill a huge room for a movie theater experience.
