Being on a budget this was the cheapest soundbar I could find and I purchased it with some apprehension. It has proved to be very good value. All functions work easily and the remote is simple to use. If you want to fill your room with rich vibrant sound this isn't the unit for you, but if you want to improve your TV sound, play casual music from a USB drive or Bluetooth from your mobile it does this really well. I have been unable to get the optical output from TV working satisfactorily but this is I believe a problem with the TV, be aware that some TV's don't do this well. All in all a good experience.
