I bought one on sale from Dollar General for $35. I never heard a tower speaker before and bought it to plug in to the head phone out jack on my 24 inch led TV. The remote is one of those bubble button ones, so I don't have much confidence in it. The sound is great! I put my USB memory stick that I coppied all my CDs on to and Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon came on. I don't remember hearing it so well before! The sound is great!
Not what I thought it would be
Still do not have it working. Instructions are almost nothing and I have had two other people look at doing it for me. They think something may be wrong with the bar. Another friend has offered to try it at his house to see if he can get it to work. So far its been a wasted purchase.
Decent sound for budget-conscious consumers
I moved into a new townhouse with my wife and we've been hosting a good share of house parties, where music was a mainstay. We were using a small 2.1 speaker system with an AUX in for playing music, but it was a mediocre arrangement at best. I've seen these tower-style speakers before, but was skeptical of how they'd sound. I took a chance on the iCraig, and I'm glad I did.
Nice Sound but lacks Adjustment
This is the 3rd sound bar I have tried for my LCD TV and so far, it is the best. Had the new Bose Solo, Samsung with sub and this one beats them if you don't want the thump, thump thump of bass when you just want clear speech.
Still wish it had a way to adjust bass, Mid's and high's, then it would be perfect.
Great sound, great price
Amazed at the sound! Blue ray and regular DVD upgrading is awesome! The bass is really shattering. Had to turn it down a notch. Living room is 14X20, perfect sound! I need to get some extension cable to put on the rear speakers they're about 6' short. I haven't done any online, hulu, etc. stuff with it as I don't use it. I bought the 3D for future replacement of our TV, will probably go to a 3D set next time.
Exceeded my expectations
I have had a 60" Sharp for 12 months which I love but the sound output of a flat screen is limited. I trialed the Bose equipment which was incredible but it came with a $1500 price tag which I could not really justify. So, I read and watched the online reviews and the Vizio seemed to be reasonable quality for the price.
This weekend I set it up which was as simple as they say.
Exponentially better than built-in TV speakers
We never had any doubts that Vizio's latest audio solutions would be appealing from a value standpoint. What was at question was whether or not these sound bars would sound good enough to keep folks from feeling urged to spend a little more in hopes for better sound quality. Having spent some quality time with the system, we have to say yes, it can
The average listener will be very satisfied with a SB4021M purchase.
Dynamic, bassy sound, Built-in Bluetooth and remote learning
Overall the SB200 is a terrific option for anyone looking to upgrade their TV's ropey sound quality. It's a simple proposition, lacking the extensive features and connections of a soundbar such as the Samsung HT-E8200, however that lack of complication could be the very thing you're looking for. What's more, its sound is powerful and exciting, it looks great and built-in Bluetooth makes music streaming a breeze - and for £250 you can't say fairer than that.
Loud, explosive sound, Good energy
If you're looking for a simple single-bar solution to boost your telly's sound, the lively SB200 is a good option.
Discreet design, Chunky, well-balanced sound
It might not blow you away like the very best soundbars, but the SB200 delivers a beefy, exciting sound with tightly integrated bass and plenty of detail - all delivered with admirable poise. Add Bluetooth support and a stylish design into the mix and you've got yourself a very appealing soundbar for the money.
This is easy to install and for a small unit I was impressed with the sound quality -- that does it for the Pros. On initial set up the sound was clipping in and out. The directions read that the input amps can be trimmed using as small switch on the back with three settings, but this was only supposed to work for the Aux-1 input? After much frustration, even though I was using the fiber optic input, I tried to change the setting and the clipping ceased so that problem was solved.
Simple installation with no need for a receiver
Overall, I believe that Boston Acoustics achieved their goal of building a simple, user-friendly, full sounding audio system. When you factor in the cost and the ease of setup, it's hard not to give it a hearty recommendation - particularly if you are still listening to the awful audio from your flat panel television's integrated speakers!
Not a great system
I was very unimpressed with this system. While it was triple the prize of my old speakers (which have now come down even more) the sound quality is far worse. The bass, in particular, suffers; with my logitecs I could shake the floor playing Led Zeppelin and with this samsung system I can hardly even hear the bass, despite doing everything possible to turn it up.
Sound is very good, but the features are what really sell it. Although the interface can be a little clunky, the ability to watch amazon video and use pandora without plugging in a computer is great. Also first thing you should do after buying this system is get the App. Not only does the app give you quick access to volume and arrow keys, it also gives you a full duplicate of the actual remote AND quick control over the audio settings like base level and equalizer.
Simple to set-up, simple to use
Given its $399 suggested retail price, the SC-BTT195 offers a whole lot of bang for the buck. It sets up quickly, providing a 3D-capable Blu-ray player and provides access to a nice selection of audio and video streaming services. While the speakers seem a little flimsy, for the price this can be overlooked, especially for anyone who loves movies but lacks the budget and space for a full-fledged component home theater system.
Very good detail, color, contrast, and black levels
The SC-BTT195 is a good option for those looking for a modestly-priced all-in-one system to enjoy Blu-ray, DVD, internet streaming, and to enhance their audio listening experience, especially for movies, in a smaller room environment. For a home theater-in-a-box system in its price class, it is worth consideration.
