What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Biggest Piece of Garbage I have ever purchased. Have had this sound bar for about 18 months now. Over all quality as far as aesthetics and sound performance is good. It worked fine for about 6 months and then the problems started. Constantly turning itself off and on randomly, the Simplink has never worked properly, the wi-fi will not connect unless the unit is unplugged from the wall and re-booted. And now the mechanism that draws the discs in works 2% of the time and it has literally only been used 2 dozen times! Everything I own is LG Branded and I don't know how this machine slipped through their QC so easily. Not happy.
