I was looking for a simple, wireless (as can be), great sound, surround sound system. I have a 42 panasonic plasma flat screen that is wall mounted. I mounted the sound bar 4inches below the tv. The sound quality is awesome and the sub is very powerful. This is a great substitute to a full surround sound system and plus you don't have all the wires to deal with. This is a little pricey compared to other sound bars but it does make up for it in the quality of materials and sound.

Not great. It replaces under powered shotty speakers in a great Panasonic plasma TV with under powered speaker bar. Very dissapointed with this bar. Very expensive for what you get. I could have got a nice home theater in a box with what I spent on this. It performs far below my expectations. Wish I would have sent it back when I could have instead of giving it a chance to be something good which never happened. You have to turn the volume up nearly all the way to get enough volume to hear it well. Buy something else.

        Nice when it worked. I have sent this item in for repair twice and they send it back saying there is nothing wrong. It works for a while and then goes into an error mode. I requested an exchange twice and was denied. I am sending in for the third time now. The second time they had the unit in their repair center for three weeks before they opened the package. The repair center has had the unit for more days than I have actually used it in the course of a year.

          Comments about Panasonic 3D Black Soundbar Home Theater System:

          We opted for the Panasonic soundbar w/wireless subwoofer to enhance/improve the sound on a new Panasonic plasma TV. The sound quality for the money is great. It was easy to set up and operate and offers great bang for the buck.

          Service and delivery comments:

          The guys who delivered our new TV also set up the soundbar. As mentioned in the TV review, they did a great job and walked us through things when they were done.

          Comments about Panasonic 3D Black Soundbar Home Theater System:

          I am very pleased with this purchase. Being an audiophile I am very impressed by the sound compared to more expensive setups. It wont give you the illusion of all around sound but what it does for wider soundstage, vocal clarity and bass impact are worth double the price. Great buy.

          Panasonic Soundbar Subpar

          By 

          from Pomona, NY

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • Low profile

          Cons

          • Barely better than TV
          • Ports difficult
          • Subwoofer a waste

          Best Uses

          • Paperweight

          Comments about Panasonic 3D Black Soundbar Home Theater System:

          I purchased this to augment the small stock speakers on my new Panasonic VT30. I did not want a whole theater in this room. The only benefit to using another Panasonic product is that it turns on and off with the TV. The cable ports are recessed in an awkward rectange that makes access difficult. The sound quality is hardly better, and the subwoofer is a waste.
