1 out of 5 eggsDissapointing

Pros: Subwoofer has good sound

Cons: Turns on 'mysteriously' and at random.
Very hard to program remote.

Other Thoughts: I have had this for a little over a month now. I am very dissappointed with this product. When not in use it will just turn on at random even when the remote is no where in site. The sound is decent however the remote is extremly difficult to program. Definitely not what I was expecting from a Polk Product. Would not purchase one again.

3 out of 5 eggsSubwwoofer Never worked!!

Pros: It arrived in a timely fashion.

Cons: The subwoofer did not power up. All troubleshooting steps suggested by Polk were performed to no avail. The subwoofer arrived broken. I RMA the product the same day I unpacked it.

Other Thoughts: Poor quality control, Polk. You are better than this, so I am willing to overlook this and give the same model another try.

1 out of 5 eggsWaste of Time

Pros: It sounds great when it works. nice highs and bass

Cons: After spending several hours getting this setup, mounted, and working... the device decided to go haywire. the source kept switch from 1 to 2 to 3 and back again. Then it took another couple hours to unhook, unmount, and box this thing. Save your time buy something else

1 out of 5 eggsWireless Issues

Pros: Sounds good when it works. The 'learning' remote also seemed to function correctly.

Cons: Like others have mentioned, this thing destroys the wireless connections in the whole neighborhood. Even when changing channels, as recommended, multiple routers, adapters, etc. would have issues that I'd never encountered before. Obviously, these things need some serious patches applied. At $150 ( half price), I should have known it was too good to be true.

Other Thoughts: Don't waste your time if you're busy like me and just want a decent sound bar to improve your junky standard TV speakers. Even with the huge 50% discount, it just isn't worth your trouble. OTOH, if you don't have WIFI equipment nearby, picking up one of these for $100 or so refurbished would be a pretty good deal as the speakers themselves aren't bad.

2 out of 5 eggsDull sound

Pros: Good: The soundbar will learn your existing power and volume commands. No issues with wifi connectivity or subwoofer connection problems.

Cons: Bad: This soundbar does not give me a boost in sound from the plasma tv's built-in speakers. It is tinny and sounds like a clock radio. The subwoofer is very boomy when turned up loud enough to have a positive effect on low-end sound and there is no way to adjust the frequencies to reduce the mid-range muddiness.

Other Thoughts: I expected sound that would rival my Bose center channel WITH low end grunt via the subwoofer. Although its design is visually appealing, Polk does not deliver that experience.

4 out of 5 eggsSurprisingly good

Pros: Deep sound - Nice to be able to adjust bass sound in relation to volume.

Cons: NO BLUETOOTH - My girlfriend has the 5000 and it has bluetooth.

1 out of 5 eggsSubwoofer started popping after one day

Pros: Easy setup, nice design, low price on NewEgg's sale, and bang for the buck is incredible when it's working (sounds awesome in my apartment).

Cons: Subwoofer started popping loudly after just one day. Not a big deal to turn the unit off immediately when not watching TV, but it's annoying when it pops during dead air between commercials or songs, or picking another movie — let alone when during suspenseful silence while watching a movie.

*POP* *POP* *POPOPOPOPOP*

Other Thoughts: Looks like others have had same problem with popping sub. Still others have had the unit stop working after days or months, and many reporting poor customer-service response from Polk. Sounds like the lemon rate on these are a little too high. Sounds great when it's working, but I'd stay away.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your money, research a different brand

Pros: *Easy to set up.
*Sound quality at medium to high levels is great.

Cons: *Bad volume down button right out of the box
*Creates WIFI interferences, causing other devices to malfunction
*Low volume listening has high frequencies too high
*Subwoofer emits random "POPS" that will make you jump
*Programming the soundbar to use my original TV remote creates an issue where the volume meter is always way off and not consistent with volume levels

Other Thoughts: Volume DOWN button doesn't work right out of the box. Subwoofer POPS at random moments, even on different channels. Constant WIFI interference causing my router to not work until I unplug and plug in the sound bar again, similar effect with my Smart-TV randomly to where I can't receive air channel video (sound works, but no picture) and have to unplug the soundbar to fix it. Programming it to work with you current remote works, but the volume meter will be way off all the time just causing confusion and frustration. Using the included credit-card remote is easier, but not what you would have hoped for when expectations to utilize your same remote are there. Sound quality is excellent at medium and high levels, but when at a low volume, the sound bar high frequencies are too high. This causes a tinny sound and there's no way to adjust the highs down. At medium and high volumes the subwoofer compensates and evens this problem out. I'm very bummed out. I've always loved Polk Audio products. The fact that I have to pay return shipping to Newegg in order for a refund makes this a terrible deal. Especially since the item had a defective volume button. I'm not trying to pay $50 to return an item, I'll just deal with the junk I guess.

5 out of 5 eggsSecond Polk Audio Purchase

Pros: This soundbar has great sound clarify over that of a standard tv. The soundbar allows for you to teach it the volume up/down/mute/power buttons from your TV remote which gives you more options when it comes to controlling with a remote. The wireless sub works great in our game 10X14 game room

Cons: Polk provides all the cables you need. The tv we were hooking this to did not have an optical output so I resorted to using the RCA to 3.5mm plug cable. Polk provides a sub-standard cord in my opinion - non-gold plated for better sound signal transfer. This was not expected when buying the Polk name

Other Thoughts: I have the IHT-6000 in my main living room and absolutely love it so much I purchased this IHT-3000 for the kid's game room. The game room is 10X14 - the soundbar and sub do a wonderful job filling the room full of quality sound.

1 out of 5 eggsMalfunctioned after two days

Pros: The unit had good sound while it worked and it learned my TV controls very easily. So it worked well as far as my TV remote controlling it as well as everything else.

Cons: After two days it would not connect to the sub woofer any more. It appears that this is common from Polks web site. I tried changing channels, unplugging my wireless router, unplugging my cordless phone and still no connection. Then it got fun. I decided it would only respond to certain remote commands and that was by turning off and on (Volume up acted as a power button, volume down did nothing, input one button acted as a power button, input 2 button did nothing and so on..) Then it began to cycle off and on by itself. So now it won't stay on for longer than 30 seconds without turning off, then within 30 seconds it will turn itself back on, then off.

Other Thoughts: I have emailed Polks customer service so I will wait to see what their action is.
