Pros and Cons
Pros3

If you’re looking to get rid of the speakers that are mounted to your walls, or on bookshelves or on stands behind your seating area, this is a good option. Important to if your tv has an hdmi (arc) input, you only need one hdmi cable.

Digital atmos surround mimicking does an exceptional job. Dialogues are nice and clear and clearly seems like it comes from the center driver (mimicking the center channel), even at smart mode on. I have a sonos beam gen 2 with play:1 as surround sate...  Read More

Easy for someone more agile, without trifocals & a bit overweight. That download is important. Makes everything sync with little effort on your part. Not much tuning available for eq, but this was expected.

Cons5

Jbl product wasn't meant to last. Unfortunately it disappoints. What a wast f of time. Cheapest chinese products have better quality control.

The speaker is still very muddy. Speech is difficult to decipher unless you crank the volume. The other one has a much safer simple plug and play option, the way a speaker should be.

Wireless subwoofer is worthless without control unit that fails to function. The bar itself works but sounds very flat without the sub. No true need to be connected to wifi or bluetooth should you not have those.

According to a lengthy on line research, many others are having the same problem. The fact this thing still didn’t get pacified by hooking up a live ethernet cable directly to it, makes me not want to use this. The use of the google assistant logo i c...  Read More

No warranty. Can't find receipt so no warranty coverage. Tried different connections to no avail. I'm super bummed because while it was working, it worked well.

Pros3

The sound is great! Great sound. It's a pita. It definitely beefs up the sound. Good karma.

Simple and easy to setup. The speedy-ness of the shipping and the high quality of my item. Only complaint is that it came with a wall mount but no screws.

Bluetooth pairing is quick and works. When sub-woofer stays paired that is. That bluetooth sub woofer though.

Cons3

Everything is set up appropriately, this is just a product fail. All of the mandated power saving regulations are crippling user experience.

This soundbar has bluetooth functionality that is not secure. The sub constantly disconnects and reconnects. It shuts off constantly.

The sound quality of the lg sound bar is horrible. The sounder pads are not designed for table top placement. Consider other options.
