      It seemed to have a good range of features and the sound was good - for the limited time that it actually worked!
      I was supplied with this product in exchange for an honest review.
      When the product arrived, it was very difficult to set up. Firstly, it required an HDTM cable to connect to the T.V. - unfortunately one was not supplied with the soundbar. The instruction manual was not very clear. Eventually got it working after a fair amount of trial and error. It worked for about half an hour. However, the sound lagged a little behind the picture, which made for uncomfortable viewing. Then the sound started to cut out intermittently - only for a second at a time, but still this was annoying. Then, after about half an hour, the product stopped working and the sound started to come through the T.V.'s internal speaker instead of through the soundbar. I repeated the set-up process - this did not work. I connected the product with an optical cable - this did not work. I tried a different HDMI cable - still did not work. I could only conclude that the product was faulty. I got in touch with the supplier, who collected the product and promised me a replacement - however, this still has not arrived. Therefore I am forced to rate this product based on the faulty item.

      The sound quality of the product is excellent, especially for films, the sub woofer really adds to the soundtrack (but the base sound is not overbearing). The product looks good and is wireless so there are no cables running round the room, it also has Bluetooth which is great for streaming music from the iPad. The system was easy to set up and we are using an HMDI ARC connection which is great because it means the system comes on/goes off when you switch the TV on/off (rather than having to switch it on/off separately) and the volume can be controlled using the TV remote (the HDMI ARC cable is not in the box, you need to buy separately but they are not expensive). Overall this is a great looking and great sounding product.
      The remote control is really small and sometimes unresponsive.

      Sounded very good when it worked.
      Only worked for around 20 minutes. Stopped working when I paused live TV and never worked again. Disconnected.

      Easy to set up and install. Bluetooth pairing was straight forward. Paired easily with my iPhone & my son's android phone. Sound was very clear from the television using a digital optical cable. 3.1 sound seems to work well surrounding the room adequately. The remote control is simple & not overwhelming. The bass rumble from the sub woofer is good. This product is good for small to medium sized rooms.
      The soundbar itself is a gun metal grey colour & not black. The subwoofer needs to be turned up quite high (somewhere between mid & max) for the desired effect to take place (especially in block buster films). It may struggle in large rooms but it is much better than built in speakers of the modern LCD TVs out there.

      Very easy to set up - up and running within minutes - even the wireless sub woofer was pre-paired! The status lights on top of the main unit are very cool, with subtle led's that show the volume level and flash when the remote control is used. The sound quality is a huge improvement on the built in speakers on my Sony TV.
