Pros and Cons

Pros5

Bass is powerful without struggling or clipping, sound is crisp without being bright. Subwoofer really vibrates the living room with the base which is nice -- just like the theaters. Upward firing speakers do a fantastic job at projecting sound ubove,...  Read More

This vizio is good! It hits all the points i am hoping for without spending $1,000 or more to impress my friends. That frustration is 1000% worth the end result! This set up is mind blowing!

Disney plus is the only streaming service that has a lot of dolby atmos content. Atmos works most of the time with compatible streaming apps and games.

This is an amazing sounding system that easily punches above its sub $1000 price. A numerical read-out makes it much easier to find and remember your preferable sound levels. The problem with so many reviews i read is there are a lot of audiophiles ou...  Read More

I'm not a huge sound buff but is this worth 5-600? Over all i would say that this sound bar is under priced, it blows everything in its class out of the water.

Lazy company. The ux is absolute garbage. That's not how you treat loyal customers. Vizio customer service is a dumpster fire that clearly is run by an organization that relies on scripts.

At least half the time getting it to work requires unplugging it several times and swapping inputs. Firmware updates do nothing. It constantly freezes and even worse now the lights on the front no longer fade out during use.

The soundbar is so glitchy. It's as if it has no idea how to handle the incoming audio data. Occasionally the soundbar requires a full reboot to function again. I have to turn the vizio bar on and off and reconnect to earc and movie eq to get it to wo...  Read More

Pros3

Samsung's b550 sound bar has a subwoofer and a rear speaker. The bass unit is has wireless bluetooth and the bar has optical cable connection directly to the tv.

The sound is what you’d expect from a 3. Soundbar. It delivers great surround sound and the sub woofer’s deep bass is the cherry on top. The remote is pretty basic and it does not have true center but overall nice clarity and separation.

Hands down the best for the buck. I'm confident it will last for many moons. You won't be disappointed.

Cons2

Everything is harsh, high pitched, unnatural and tinny. Flat screens need to be mounted to a wall in order for rear firing speakers to be heard. Terribly low rear speaker volume.

Samsung is worthless on support. Buy at your own peril. Not worth the hassle even if 40% off. Typical price is around 280 to 300 usd.
