Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Sounds OK but power spec is a joke

philggg 8/18/2018

Overall this sounds OK But the claimed power spec 360 Watts total 80 watts per front channel and 200 in the sub cannot possibly be true. The power consumption of the units as listed is 22 watts in the soundbar and 33 in the subwoofer. In reality they probably are no more than 50 efficient. That makes a more realistic power for the speakers as 5 watts per front speaker and 15 watts for the sub. There can be legitimate debates around how to measure power levels in a speaker what distortion is acceptable But there is no way the speaks can deliver more audio power than comes in through the wall outlet. I dont know why vendors cant just tell the truth. We can take it..

Great sound poor voice

Alanhrh83 8/8/2018

I know you get what you paid for but my reasoning for buying a sound bar was to first upgrade the sound on my LG oled tv b7 and to get better voice I found myself rising the volume way to high to just to hear what is been said and unfortunately this sound bar doesnt fix it the only thing is good for is for explosions and making action movies more cinematic but even on those movies you need to hear what is been said so please avoid it if posible Im really thinking on returning it but how do I justified that to my wife after convincing her of buying it on the first place oh by the way not all sound bars work with the CEC on this TVs so your choices are limited that way too
