Doesn't do the job for me.
Didn't find this improved the TV sound (mainly talk rather than music) in the way hoped for. Sounded a bit to 'boxed' in. Had to return the item.
It was purchased as a special sale item and would have been extremely good value if only it suited my requirements.
Return was no hassle with the usual courteous staff.

Excellent Performance and Value for Money
This is the first soundbar I have purchased and not having a large budget or technical knowledge I relied heavily on the advise of the excellent sales staff at rhe Solihull store. I am absolutely delighted with the sound quality right through the range with a particular mention of the sub-woofer which has the power of an earthquake! Watching films has been transformed.
This is a great product for the money and top value for money.
The only down side are the vague setting up instructions which are not helpful for non techies.

Great sound and convenience
Having a small unit this sound system works very well with crisp sound from the speaker with the wireless sub being able to tuck away with intrusive wires everywhere.

Can't beat this for value
I've had this for a year now and the sound is brilliantly. Sometimes the subwoofer is a bit slow to connect, but that's my only gripe.
It's not great for Bluetooth streaming really,it can do it, but it's not really powerful enough. Mine connects to iPhone via Bluetooth and the sub still works perfectly so unsure about the issues others are having there.

Excellent sound quality and volume
Firstly great price from richer sounds as always.
Set up was a doddle and there as multiple options for connectivity.
It's a big beast but the sound quality is awesome. Better than my old 5.1 set up. Bass is powerful but not ott. Can't see any options to customise the sound coming from the unit but that isn't an issue as it sounds so good. Having the sub as Bluetooth is convenient.
The Bluetooth connectivity to devises is ok with some interference, but hard to know if that's the device or the speaker. Didn't really give that feature much thought before but it is really useful. We had a family quiz night using YouTube!
Overall definitely recommend both the unit and richer sounds.

Sleek and loud
Nice sleek sound bar, huge subwoofer. Connection and setup is simple and straightforward. The only issue is that some pre processed audio doesn't play. On Apple TV the output needs to be set to Stereo otherwise some movies and tv programs won't play from the Netflix app. On the Amazon Firestick switch off Dolby Digital Plus for the same reason.

Ok but I have issues
Easy to set up .bluetooth is not good as it gets interfered with from router .
Annoying only works about 3-4 m from Soundbar without interference.bad design where optical cable port is located as you cannot sit sound bar on flat surface. Had to mount on wall under tv which in the end is ok but I did not really have any option .
Sound quality is good.
