5 out of 5 eggsBetter than TV speakers.

Pros: Soundbar was easy to hookup to my Samsung TV via digital audio optical port. Provides superior sound quality than TV speakers. Cost half as much as new Soundbar of similar quality.

Cons: none

2 out of 5 eggsRefurbished, but heavily scratched

Pros: Nice Sound & good features. The Bluetooth music works well

Cons: Unpacked the soundbar & sub woofer only to find both of them are HEAVILY scratched. Not exactly what I would consider a "Refurbished" product.
It would cost too much to send back, so I'll put up with it.
Wont buy refurbished again though !

3 out of 5 eggsDon't buy if you use netflix

Pros: Overall it sounds pretty good.

Cons: It support DTS and Dolby Digital but NOT dolby digital+ (DD+) so if you watch netflix you only get stereo.

4 out of 5 eggsRefurb = Great Value

Pros: Overall great value for the refurbished product at the $150 price. I would have been unhappy to get this product at full retail price since the sub does not produce a big / full sound.

Cons: The sound from the sub is too soft. This is not an issue for my wife, but I would have preferred something with a more powerful Thump!

You have to use the sound bar's remote to control sound unless you have the latest Samsung TV. My 2011 Samsung Smart TV remote can't control the soundbar volume. This is a big issue for my wife and daughter because using 2 remotes for Cable & the SmartTV features (Netflix, Hulu, Amaz0nPrime, etc) was bad enough. Now there is a 3rd remote! I actually don't mind it too much, but I have stop what I am doing to help them get the sound turned on.

Other Thoughts: I connect to the sound bar to my Samsung LED LCD via Optical Cable. The sound bar connects to the subwoofer via wireless connection. There are HDMI IN & HDMI OUT connectors. There is also an Aux IN jack (looks like you can connect from your mp3, ipod, cell phone, etc... headphone jack to the Aux jack if you have a Male to Male 3.5mm Stereo Audio Headphone Aux Cable - ~$4.00+/- at NewEgg). My wife and I connect our smartphones to this sound bar via Bluetooth to stream music. The sound is way better than most standard LCD TV speakers. You don't "feel" the sub during movies; however, my wife does not like the big booming sound of a powerful sub.

1 out of 5 eggsHDMI does not work

Pros: Good sound for the price
Nice looking
wireless sub

Cons: HDMI did not work out of the box
Audio could be clearer

Other Thoughts: Junk reman. Bought this as a gift for my step Dad. Went over to his house for a ski trip and noticed the HDMI does not work whatsoever. He's not tech savvy so he had no idea. If I would have known I would have returned it and got him something better. Guess I'm not buying Newegg manufactured items anymore.

5 out of 5 eggsStupendous

Pros: This device is nice and small and does not take up a great deal of space. It also comes with brackets to mount the main speaker bar just about anywhere to get optimal sound. It is sleak and looks great and with the lack of cables needed, it does not clutter up the entertainment area.

Now onto the sound quality. I was absolutely floored at how much sound this little guy puts out. The wireless subwoofer really thumps. It is adaptive to the type of sound being supplied (optical or HDMI only) and really fills the entire house with wonderful clear sound. If you have a Samsung TV the remotes work on both devices. It plays music from my phone and laptop via Bluetooth nicely and even plays music from a usb stick.

Cons: It does take some time to understand the manual and set it up. The subwoofer may not be locked or associated with the soundbar when you receive it and that takes some time to get set up as well.

Other Thoughts: For the price it is well worth the buy if you plan on building an ultimate HTPC like I did without breaking the bank

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Refurb

Pros: Well packaged, included all OEM accessories + batteries for remote
Great looks.
Easy to set up.
Seems to work on my TV so I'm hoping it works on my dad's TV because this is a gift.

Cons: Remote seems cheap - has a cheap feel when you hold it/push buttons.
Batteries included are some terrible off-brand. How expensive is it - really - to include 2 decent AAA batteries?
Sound bar seems to be designed for hanging rather than placing on a shelf which is odd seeing as the majority of people don't hang their TVs.

Other Thoughts: I may put rubber feet on the bottom of the soundbar to keep it from moving around on the glass shelf where it will be placed.

4 out of 5 eggsGood value

Pros: Very good sound for the price. Pretty easy to set up. Good volume. I'm using the music setting for everything and it sounds nice.

Cons: Base sound is just adequate. The sports setting sounds terrible.
