Here are a few impressions:
1. Matches my Panasonic TV.
2. Wireless Sub is really handy. It can be placed several feet away from the speakerbar. The bass quality is quite good for a sub of this size.
3. Works with HDMI CEC. This means that my Panasonic TV remote controls the soundbard via "Viera Link." Simply put, I turn on the TV, the speaker bar turns on. I can control the volume on the speaker bar with the TV remote too.
4. Sound quality for TV shows is much better then the built in speakers.
1. When switching TV inputs the speaker bar will often not change over. I will put it on "TV" and watch TV via OTA antenna then change it to my PS3 on "HDMI 1" and the sound stops working. I have to use the Viera Link control to change the sound back to the TV speakers then back to the sound bar for it to work. Sometimes I have to power the whole system down then back on for it to work. This seams to happen more to my wife then me though.
2. The mid and low tones are terrible. High tones sound fine. If you are just watching TV its not bad. If you are watching a movie or playing a game it can be a bit disappointing. Explosions and loud noises are very tinny sounding and can lack depth.
3. It lacks any optical or analog connections so there's no connecting an iPod for music.
4. I have a long and narrow living room with an 8 ft ceiling. The room is too big for the system. These only work well in smaller rooms like a bedroom or office or small living room.
Overall, if I knew then what I know now I wouldn't have bought this system. I'd have gone with the Onkyo 2.1 system or even just sprung for a receiver and some decent bookshelf speakers. Speaker bars are nice to save space, and they are superior to the built in speakers, but know what to expect before you buy.
The internal TV speakers by themselves are inadequate. Both the soundbar and subwoofer work like a charm - what a difference in overall sound quality! The soundbar system also looks great and perfectly matches my television.
Installation was extremely simple just a single HDMI cable is needed to make the connection between the speakers and the HDMI/ARC on the TV. Then plug the soundbar speakers and the wireless subwoofer into AC outlets and you're good to go.
I did not need any of the provided mounting hardware for the soundbar since I have an already existing shelf (came with the house) directly above my television: I simply placed the soundbar on this shelf. The subwoofer stands about 6-7 feet to the left of the front of my TV (same wall) and it links up with the speakers/soundbar right away when turned on (visible green light).
Although I do not have a Panasonic TV (and thus officially no Viera link), my Toshiba TV remote also does directly control the volume of the soundbar and the on/off functionality of the sound system, because it is recognized as a HDMI CEC compliant device by my television.
I have no directly visible on-screen indication of the overall sound level/volume (30%, 50%, 70%, etc.), but then who really needs this anyway? Let your ears be your guide!
Note that visible green lights do flash sequentially on top of the speakers whenever the volume is turned up or down.
The only thing that I need the provided Panasonic remote for is to control the volume of the subwoofer which can be done independently of the soundbar itself.
