Great product, however ...
I have used this product for over a year now. Initially the salesperson advised me to use the optical connection for the best performance however the sound "drifted" and constantly required re-syncing so I switched to HDMI. I find that the sound still drifts when the kids have been watching for a few hours which means dragging out another remote or turning the device off entirely. My wife also finds the time between powering on & having sound to be annoying. It's been timed at 12 seconds whereas other soundbars I've tested can take as little as 2 seconds.

Great sound, easy to use and setup.
After some research decided this system fitted my requirements. It was great value compared to other systems.
One of my main requirements was being able to control the volume with the TV remote. The ARC HDMI connection allows this and it works very well.
The setup was easy and the performance is excellent. The improvement over the TV speakers is remarkable.
Linking via Bluetooth to my mobile phone was very fast and easy and the sound was also excellent.
I highly recommended this product.
