Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Stevbo 10/21/2019

Bought this soundbar 10/01/019 easy to hook up has great sound and functions. Took about 40 minutes to remove from box and make all connection. Once connected to my LG tv my satellite tv remote controls soundbar volume and on and off without going through menu and setups

Beautiful sound

Colby Hans 9/28/2019

I bought this aboit a week or go on my birthday of Sept 16th. I used to owned what well seemed to work great for awhile. It had a 5.1 speakers witj a subwoofer and the price you. Couldnt really beat. But i realized the CRA speaker had massive problems. Always shutting off in the middle of a tv show. You would heat the surround sound and all its background noise no matter what you did to try to fix it. It never worked and it would always shut off at random times. So i decided on an upgrade. The LG wireless sound bar. Now the down fall me is Im still not getting my subwoofers to really give that sun woofer pump that we all want. And it maybe be niss the real speakers which for some reason you mich buy your self. But i cant honestly say its need one of my best sound bar purchases. So thank you.

Subwoofer is weak

Lhazc 8/8/2019

Bought this today and am quite disappointed with the lack of bass even at different settings. I bought it to pair with my 4k LG TV but sadly will be boxing it back up and returning it. On the positive hooking my phone up was super easy but to get it to recognize the TV was playing was a pain. Had to turn off everything and turn it all back on.
