Pros and Cons
Pros5

This is my first sound bar and i’m pleasantly surprised with the sound quality. It's perfectly fine without atmos. Since this is a brand new sound bar, there aren't too many reviews or ratings available to rely on.

The soundbar is awesome, its only negative outside the screws is the display are just led lights. Which is my favorite thing with this soundbar, along with the dialog clarity. Better than glorified tv speakers!

The only con i have is that the dolby atmos is almost non-existent. With virtual-x on, sound is really immersive and 3d. The only issue i've had so far with this surround sound is with the bluetooth connectivity.

Bass is fully adjustable, whether with presets or incremental fine tuning. Nothing is muffled or lost. Impact thud is impressive.

Easy, no hassle, set up. Hdmi in (and) earc port plays nice with my 2020 arc enabled 4k lg tv. Only down side is the insanely short optical cable.

Cons2

The earc negotiation between the samsung tv i have and the vizio soundbar is often not successful resulting in no sound. Save your money and upgrade to samsung or bose.

There’s noticeable low end from the sub (compared to the h9g speakers) but it sounds cheap. The sub with the 5 inch woofer is just not good enough to really convey any real low end feel. At frequencies below 45hz, the subwoofer makes this awful vibrat...  Read More

The sound quality is immaculate, and the sound matches up perfectly with what's going on, on the screen. Kinda simulates dolby atmos, it’s perfect. The built-in subwoofers deliver to our liking; we’re not fans of window-rattling sound but we enjoy the...  Read More

Comes with everything you might need to mount this under your tv including drywall screws and a handy stencil. Does works fluently with my tcl tv and easy setup configuration startup.

I was on the fence to try a different brand, and per rtings review, tcl alto 8i is the best 2. Breeze bar. Do not consider the negative reviews here.

Cons4

Tcl alto 8i consistently makes a really loud grating buzz noise when i switch from cable to streaming or vice versa. Whenever there’s a slight pause in audio over hdmi or optical, the device shows “pcm audio’ and then drops out. The bar is extremely g...  Read More

Highs are not ear piercing sharp and roll off nicely. The built-in subwoofers hardly produce any bass at all. This feature also presents issues when navigating menus, as sounds associated with highlighting and selecting various menu options on nvidia ...  Read More

No returns without original packaging. Mounting process would've been nice if the mounting hardware provided any leeway in the spacing of the holes. This is completely ridiculous when you have two brand new tcl products that are supposed to be compati...  Read More

It's a shame this feature was implemented so aggressively. Wednesday, a loud screeching sound. It still powers on and you can navigate the menu, just no audio.
