Pioneer SPSB23W/B Soundbar Speaker System w/ Wireless Subwoofer
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Great Sound and High Quality 02/26/2015

This review is from: Pioneer SPSB23W/B Soundbar Speaker System w/ Wireless Subwoofer

Pros: 1. Crisp sharp sound with adequate bass
2. Solid wood housing - not plastic
3. Trainable remote so you don't have 10 remote controls to watch TV
4. Wireless bass you can put behind a chair or couch.
5. Good bluetooth range.
6. Great value at refurbished price.

Cons: Poor cord management. The way this soundbar mounts does not allow for hidden cord management. It would have been nice to have some recess to hide the excess power cord. I wrapped the excess cord around the soundbar to help hide it. Otherwise it works and sounds great.

Other Thoughts: I got this as a refurbished unit and it looks brand new. Prior problems with bluetooth connectivity have been worked out. My Pioneer soundbar connects well with the Ipad in its dock 35 feet away

JBL Cinema BD100 Blu-ray 5.1 Home Theater System
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

2 out of 5 eggs Don't buy if you need HDMI-CEC 05/27/2014

This review is from: JBL Cinema BD100 Blu-ray 5.1 Home Theater System

Pros: Good sound quality for the price
Internet services work well and are fairly reliable
Good Bluetooth range

Cons: Missing remote
Horrible customer service
HDMI-CEC not compatible with Sharp Aquos

I purchased this unit on a Shell Shocker deal about two weeks ago at a really good price point. When I received it several days later, there was no remote in the box (one other reviewer had the same problem). I contacted JBL customer service which is in India and not only did I have a difficult time understanding the representative, his response was to send an e-mail to the JBL warehouse in USA requesting a remote. About a week later, and after prodding several times, JBL informed be there were no remotes available. JBL customer service did although offer to exchange the entire unit shipping prepaid.

I got the replacement unit about a week later and yes in fact there was a remote in the box. Setup was fairly easy and straightforward. Internet streaming services all work well and are reliable.

The main problem I have now is getting the CEC-HDMI service to work with my Sharp Aquos TV. It turns off the JBL Cinema BD-100 but will not turn it on when the TV commands. So I have to work it out with a universal remote, something the CEC-HDMI is supposed to take care of. I was able to control my prior sound system using the ARC of my TV and all worked well. Another call to JBL customer service is in order.

Other Thoughts: If you don't need to interface with other HDMI devices and use Consumer Electronics Control (CEC), then this may be a good sound system for you if you can get it at the right price point. Otherwise, get used to fussing with a bunch of remote controls.

SONY MDR-RF970RK Supra-aural Radio Freq Wireless Headphones

5 out of 5 eggs Great sound fantastic price 08/30/2012

This review is from: SONY MDR-RF970RK Supra-aural Radio Freq Wireless Headphones

Pros: Great sound, comfortable. Recharagable.

Cons: had trouble with the promo code.

Other Thoughts: I have been looking for wireless headphones for some time since I sometimes stay up late and when I saw these headphones on the e-mail at this price, I bought two. Gregt item and an even better price. Don't be afraid to buy refurbished. I have bought refurb items from NE for years and always reliable and good quality.
