Good until it was updated

Lguser123456 4/17/2022

Worked great until it was updated and then there was a mass amount of units failing because of bad control boards so we had to buy an 80 dollar board to fix it.

Poor product

Samay 11/1/2021

This is third change of my soundbar . First 2 was damaged within couple of month so can be exchanged under warranty but this time it went more than a year subwoofer stopped working. The only reason bought this is i have LG tv and it is compatible with that tv otherwise I wouldnt have bought it . Made a big mistake and this is first and last time for LG products .

Ok sound but wireless connection died in a year.

MilwaukeeMike 10/8/2021

The sound is decent for the price. The subwoofer is a little underpowered for my taste but good enough to not make me run out and buy something better. Again for the price pretty solid buy. The reason its a 2-star review is because the wireless connection between the sound bar and the subwoofer died in less than a year. Nothing I did including hard resets of the pairing could get it to reconnect. LGs tech support number was hard to reach busy signal all the time. I had better luck with their online tech support chat/text window. They walked me through the hard reset but no luck. In the end had to send it in for repair still out for repair now so I dont know if they will be able to fix it. At least I was still within the warranty period and the return shipping was free.

Sub unit failed in less than a year.

Another Wags 6/4/2021

Purchased less than a year ago for our basement entertainment center to pair with our LG TV. Unit did not get that much use however. The sound was great while it lasted. After less than a year the sub unit all of a sudden will not power on. Warranty claim is still in process awaiting arrival of packaging so I can return the ENTIRE product sound bar sub for service/replacement.

Could be louder but great quality

squarky 4/27/2021

Im old school from the 60s 70s when power ruled the day with stereo receivers at 100+ watts per channel 4 channels and 0.05 harmonic distortion records only with tapes PRE CD so maybe was expecting to much. Still though was surprised at the clarity of the sound and it wasnt weak just not room shaking..then again Im 76 years old and dont hear as well probably the reason as back then. It DOES enhance the tv sound which coming from a 7 month old LG 43 inch flat screen smart tv sounded pretty good o start but now has decent bass Time will tell as to longevity.

I bought the sound bar in November 2020 it was easy to sync with my LG TV sound is very good and perfect for what I need. On March 2021 only 4 months after the purchase I sent it back for warranty the subwoofer keeps disconnecting from the sound bar. I havent received it yet let see what happens.
