Pros: good surround sound for a cheap price

Cons: I did not buy this on newegg..I've been through two of these..The first one had no sound from one of the center speakers..I opened it up and found out the reason for that is because only one of the speakers had a driver..So I returned it and got a new one..Same problem..Only one driver in the center speaker..

It seems as if this is the way this system was designed..One of the speakers are just for looks..Instead of a driver the wires daisy chain to the back of the other speaker where it is just glued down.

Love it! 8/18/2013 6:56:21 PM

Pros: Sound quality is superb. Absolutely love it. The rear speakers are very light and is very easy to hang. It really makes movies and games sound incredible!

The subwoofer is compact and sounds great! It's low profile enough to fit under the gap in some couches, making the movie experience pretty great!!

The built-in 3D is somewhat different than my TV's. I don't know if I like it better or not, but it seemed to be a bit harder for me to focus on the image. I need to try some actual 3D movies to see how it compares.

Options for audio control are okay, but many are cryptic. The manual is not very good at explaining some of them, either. For example, "Center Focus" enables audio from the two side speakers rather than just the center speaker. The manual does not state this.

Overall, this thing does exactly what you need it to do. It's a great entry-level surround sound system if you're just getting your home theater set up. Plus, it looks very professional.

Cons: ARC connection is buggy. It's not a usable input unless you make it the default input, which is really annoying. This means that if your cable box is connected through optical and your other devices are connected to the TV, you cannot use ARC since chances are you'll be setting optical as the default input. That means all other devices will not play through the speakers. Either that, or you'll have to set ARC as the default, and then manually switch to optical every time you turn it on - which defeats the purpose of the TV controlling the default input.

Only solution is to run everything through an optical switch to get 5.1 surround. Fairly annoying issue. Panasonic doesn't seem to acknowledge it whatsoever.

The "Smart TV" interface is insanely slow. Not very usable.

Could use more inputs.

Overall Review: My center channel had one speaker go bad. Good news is I bought the extended warranty, and it was all taken care of! I've got a new Polk center-channel speaker. Sounds even better!!

Good System 5/28/2013 12:57:10 PM

Pros: works very well. Good Sound quality.

Cons: I wish it had a way to go directly to audio in when you start the system up. you have to turn it on and wait for it to go to the home screen and then push the I-pod button on the remote. It's just annoying.

DO NOT BUY REFURBISHED FROM SOHNEN 5/15/2013 7:39:40 PM

Pros: No Pros

Cons: Sohnen has the worst customer service in history. Please do not buy from them, in my opinion they misrepresent the products and don't keep their word with replacing defective products. Use at your own peril.

Beware 4/11/2013 6:49:41 AM

Pros: None

Cons: Got the unit and it would not stay power on, got error message F61. Cost me $30 to ship unit back to Newegg and that was the money I saved for it being on sale. I will probably never by refurbished again. I think shipping should be free when you receive defective unit.

Overall Review: Now I am worried that I may get another bad unit and cost me shipping again. Big Mistake! Did this for a friend, never again.

Good system for a good price 3/27/2013 1:20:59 PM

Pros: - Good sound output, good baas. I had even used it in 1000 Sq feet partyhall and it filled the haal without turning to full volume.
- Nice look, specially tower speakers give a rich look.
- you can play contineously in playlists for youtube
- Iphone controller app is pretty nice. I find that much easier to use then the remote control itself.

Cons: - You can't browse or do other things while one media is playing. If you are playing music and you go back to the list to select other song, first song will stop.
- Ipod-iphone playback : The iPod/iphone connection will just let you play your content in Itune libraries. If you play youtube video on iphone (it is easier to browse and select there) and want to view/hear on system, that does not happen. For that I guess I need a iphone-hdmi converter cable or something like that.
- Build-in display is very lame. You will have to have a TV to operate the system easily. For example, If you don't connect it to TV and you are playing an Audio CD , you will have to change song one by one.
- Youtube Selection doesn't remember anything. You'll have to type all search, everything from the start.

Overall Review: This is my first home theater and I am not a super audio video enthugiast.

These are few pros and cons I found after using it for a week.

Overall I am happy with the system as I could buy fully functional home theater in the price of sound bar+subwoofer in nearby store. Only thing I am missing is the wireless rear speakers as now there are wires running through my drying room walls and also I could not place speaker far.

Good package - don't overdrive the sub 3/19/2013 8:18:22 AM

Pros: -Good sound for the money
-Integration with Panasonic TV
-Good picture quality
-Speedy load time
-Easy setup

Cons: -Subwoofer blew when cranked up. Took 2 weeks to get a replacement.
-Included Speaker wires are not long enough
-Viera link quirks. When powers on, it automatically switches the TV from whatever you are watching to the home screen. This is annoying when all I want is to use it to enhance the sound of the TV. It takes 5 steps to power on the TV and the receiver and get the TV back to the HDMI1 input.

Overall Review: This unit is worth $200 - not $399!! In hindsight though, I would have bought a $200 soundbar/wireless sub and a $50 blu ray player separately.
