Review 1 for VIZIO VHT510 5.1 Surround Sound Home Theater with Wireless Subwoofer

Great Sound

I was a little concerned about reports that said the led volume indicator lights quit working shortly after installation. Decided to purchase anyway, since other reviews indicated good pair for other vizio products. The sound is great, good size, easy to set up, no complaints. Great addition to vizio led 3D 55" tv and vizio 3D DVD player. I must include that after 4 days the led volume lights on front of the sound bar did stop working. I did an online chat with vizio tech and he had me turn off the sound bar, unplug the power from the sound bar and hold the power button down for 30 seconds, plug back in and turn back on. This did not work the first time may not have held the power button down long enough. Went through those steps a second time. The led volume lights were reset and have worked ever since. The tech told me that the bar would need to be replaced if these steps did not correct the problem. Yeah! It did worked and continues to work. We are happy as larks with this sound system.

Review 2 for VIZIO VHT510 5.1 Surround Sound Home Theater with Wireless Subwoofer

Good buy for the money

I was very skeptical after reading the reviews and comments about this system. I wanted a simple system with good sound and an affordable price. I got what I was looking for. Not only does it have good sound quality, but it comes with two rear surround speakers (something most sound bars do not come with) but also a subwoofer that provides exceptional bass. I'll be honest, I was worried about the display system going out, which was the only complaint I had read about. When I set my system up it worked fine. The next time I turned it on, the display didn't work, so I called Vizio and troubleshoot some issues. When that didn't work, they gave me a service number so that they could replace it. I didn't want to go through all of that for just the display (it works fine without it) so I decided to live with it. The next time I turned it on, it worked again, and I haven't had an issue with it. I've had it for a month now, and I'm extremely happy with it. I would definitely recommend it!

Review 3 for VIZIO VHT510 5.1 Surround Sound Home Theater with Wireless Subwoofer

LED's went out.

01/10/2011

Love the sound. Unlike other's I actually managed 2 days before my LED lights went out. While it still functions, IT'S ONLY TWO DAYS OLD!!! The LED's don't just adjust the volume. They also indicate what level the sub is, the bass, the treble, center speaker, and rear speakers. This is really important when you are concerned annoying the apartments near by. The top of my sub came all scratched up. This puzzles me. It's wrapped in a soft bag, then completely encased in styrofoam, in the bottom of the box. How this could even happen is beyond me.
The tech support phone number is incorrect. I don't know the correct one because after holding for 15 minutes, I got transferred and received a message that said due to inclement weather they were closed.
Also, they say you must get a Vizio ipod dock because the remote incorporates ipod controls that only work with a vizio braded dock. Well vizio doesn't make an ipod dock. So don't base any part of your purchase on that.
Honestly, this is probably going back.

Review 4 for VIZIO VHT510 5.1 Surround Sound Home Theater with Wireless Subwoofer

Not a quality product

Volume and channel (base, treble,) LED indicator quit working within an hour after installation. Called Vizio and explained the problem. Ask them if this was a common issue. They responded (Garth in South/North Dakota) that their product has the highest rating of all electronics in reliability. Said they would replace it but would take 7-9 business days to arrive. I stated I could return it to Walmart and reorder online and receive a new one in less than a week. He suggested I do that.... take him, the paper work, and company out of the loop. Well, thought I was just unlucky until I read the reviews. Seems this product has the same re-occurring problem. Vizio won't admit it. Now I'm worried about the '46 3D Vizio TV I purchased. I did get the warranty for it. Thanks, everyone, for the reviews. May have to reassess my confidence in Vizio. BTW, Walmart has reduced it price on this product by $50 in the last couple of days. Might be having a fire sale.

Review 5 for VIZIO VHT510 5.1 Surround Sound Home Theater with Wireless Subwoofer

Perhaps THE best sound bar for the money

I could not be any happier than I am with the Vizio VHT510 soundbar system. I listened to quite a number of sound bar systems and, quite frankly, heard some good ones along the way. For the price I paid at Walmart for this system, however, none could even begin to compare to the quality to price ratio. I would say that if you're looking for a very fine sounding soundbar system that will exceed the sound quality of many of the major brands out there, this is the one to get. It was an easy setup. I only had to look at the manual once when I ran into a slight issue pairing the subwoofer to the main soundbar. The rest was incredibly easy. It looks great and the quality of the build is very good. I had read some remarks about the LED volume indicator going out on some of the earlier units, but so far, so good. And while I like the fact that I can see the volume using the LED indicators, even if they were to go out, I'd still be a major fan of this unit and would not want to part with it. It is simply that good.

Review 6 for VIZIO VHT510 5.1 Surround Sound Home Theater with Wireless Subwoofer

Great home theater unit at a great price!

I was skeptical that this product would produce true surround sound effects. Man, was I wrong. The unit was very easy to set up and within 10 minutes, I was listening to mind-blowing surround sound with extraordinary bass thump while watching Golden Eye. I am truly a believer, now. There are only 3 things that would improve this system.
1) It should turn off the subwoofer when you power off the unit.
2) It needs one more lower volume setting to keep anyone in the other room from being awakened.( I am serious, this unit will blow you out of your chair)
3) My Fios remote does not recognize the Vizio remote code, so now I have 3 remotes to keep up with.
This was the first time I ordered online from Walmart and picked it up in the store. The experience was flawless. I gave the attendant my confirmation and 5 minutes later was rolling it out the front door. This was the easiest Christmas shopping I have ever accomplished.

Review 7 for VIZIO VHT510 5.1 Surround Sound Home Theater with Wireless Subwoofer

Meets all expectations

After reading a few reviews regarding the new Vizio VHT510 5.1, I was convinced enough to give it a try.
After my new surround sound system arrived, I immediately unpacked it and began installing it. I have a Vizio 47" HDTV and the installation was a breeze. I did purchase an optical video cable to get the best possible sound quality (they should include it with the system). I placed the wireless subwoofer in a back corner of the room and the two satellite speakers on the left and right sides of the rear of the room on end tables.
After my install was completed (took about 10 minutes), I was ready to put it to the test. I placed a blu-ray movie in my player and I was blown away with the quality of sound I was hearing. I've listened to other surround sound systems costing much more and they were not as good as the Vizio.
The only negative comment I would mention is the remote. It is a bit small and the volume controls, bass, treble, etc, are even smaller but once you set it to your desired levels, you shouldn't have to deal with it very much.
Overall, I'm extremely pleased with the product and it's quality of sound. For the price, I think it would be hard to beat.

Review 8 for VIZIO VHT510 5.1 Surround Sound Home Theater with Wireless Subwoofer

Excellent!...only one thing not clearly stated

5 out of 5
This speaker system works perfectly! I have 3 game systems and a computer hooked up to my Samsung LED tv via HDMI cables and one optical from the tv to the center speaker bar and get perfect 5.1 surround from all units, even the computer! The only draw back I wish was stated very clearly in the product description (which I did not see stated anywhere) is that though the sub is wireless the two rear satelite speakers ARE NOT. The rear speakers are hard wired to the wireless sub so you will have to keep that in mind when placing the sub and speakers. Plus the rear speaker wires are fairly thick with a 1/2" adapter on each end so running them through a tight space to hide the wires is out of the question. Other than that minor cosmetic issue I couldn't be more pleased with the ease of setup and sound quality. If you need a perfect 5.1 soundbar speaker unit without 6 speakers sitting around your living room, this is the best product I have found!

Review 9 for VIZIO VHT510 5.1 Surround Sound Home Theater with Wireless Subwoofer

VIZIO 5.1 SURROUND - WELL WORTH IT

THIS SYSTEM WORKS WONDERFULLY! IT IS SUCH A NICE COMPLIMENT TO MY 42" VIZIO FLAT SCREEN TV AND WAS EASY TO HOOK UP. IT INCLUDES 4 SPEAKERS: A CENTER SOUND BAR UNIT, WOOFER UNIT AND 2 REAR SPEAKERS. THE WOOFER IS WIRELESS AND SEPARATE FROM THE CENTER UNIT, BOTH REAR SPEAKERS ARE HARD-WIRED TO THE WOOFER (NOT WIRELESS) BUT HOOKS UP EASILY. THE SOUND BAR SOUND INDICATOR LIGHTS HAVE WORKED FLAWLESSLY AND THE REMOTE IS WELL-DESIGNED. BE SURE TO TURN OFF YOUR TV SPEAKERS AND ONLY USE THE SURROUND SYSTEM WITH A OPTICAL CABLE - YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SYSTEM.

This system sets up quickly and sounds amazing! The only draw back is the led lights on the front of the sound bar stopped working just 4 days after we got it. I called Vizio and was informed this is a common problem and the unit would need to be returned. I also viewed other reviews on Amazon for this unit and was shocked at the amount of people who had the same experience. While the unit did still work and sound amazing, I was not comfortable keeping it and returned it at Walmart. Again, sounds amazing, looks great, but the lights don't always work.

Review 12 for VIZIO VHT510 5.1 Surround Sound Home Theater with Wireless Subwoofer

Satellite Speakers Issue

1 out of 5
Received the order today. Connected everything, worked fine for 5 mins and then the satellite speakers started making huge noise. As per the troubleshooting guide I checked the cable to make sure the connections are tight and connected well, still the noise continued.
Tried to connect on DVD player directly, still not success. Called the Vizio support, had them on the call for 20-25 mins, they tried all the predefined resetting options and ultimately said the piece is defective.
Just feels was it worth waiting for it to be delivered and then being on the call with Vizio. Feels they don't have a great QC, if you are lucky and you product works then you would be happy with the product, but it's a big risk. After this experience I may not buy another Vizio product. Would stick to the big guys (Sony and Samsungs..) had never had this kind of problem ever!
Mind you the construction and style and everything does look great and if it works you are lucky.

Review 13 for VIZIO VHT510 5.1 Surround Sound Home Theater with Wireless Subwoofer

A steal for $300.

We've had the system for about a month now and it works great. It is a quality surround sound system for the money. The remote is relatively simple to understand and use. The system utilizes an optical cable instead of HDMI connection which is the only thing that I would change. I waited to write this review to see if we would experience any of the problems (with LED's on the sound bar...etc.) as others have written about in previous reviews but have had none.
We love the fact that the connection between the front sound bar and rear subwoofer is wireless (rear speakers are hard-wired to subwoofer). The sound bar and subwoofer are spaced about 20 feet from each other. The manual recommends line-of-sight between them to insure synchronization but we have furniture between them and there has been no problem.
We also have a much more expensive and powerful surround sound system in a larger room in our house. It does provide better quality sound, and more of it, than the Visio but it is not really fair to directly compare the two. I could have afforded another expensive system but this one meets all of our needs. If you are looking for a smaller system at a great value as we were, it is the best bang for the buck out there!

Review 14 for VIZIO VHT510 5.1 Surround Sound Home Theater with Wireless Subwoofer

Low quality, low price

07/16/2011

1 out of 5
Low price and decent sound -- when it works. And it's doesn't.
As noted in several other reviews here and on Amazon, there is a manufacturing defect in this model. The front-panel display lights do not work reliably, and the overall manufacturer quality control is very poor. I am now on my FOURTH system in one month and finally giving up!!! The first system I got from Wal-mart.com had the problem on receipt. Wal-mart did an exchange (easy!). The second one was fine on receipt, but the lights stopped working the following day. I called Vizio directly, and they did a warranty replacement (not so easy, but not too bad either). The third one, from Vizio directly, arrived with a totally dead subwoofer -- no lights, no sound. It went back to Vizio, and the fourth one, also direct from Vizio, developed the same problem about 10 days later. So after all this -- FOUR EXCHANGES! -- I'm returning the thing to Wal-mart for a refund.
The lesson is that you get what you pay for. You don't pay a lot for this system, and that's exactly what you get. I'll spend a little more and get something that is well made.
The one bright part of this whole experience is how good Wal-mart's customer support has been.

Very good soundbar

I went online to CNet and they rated this model highly. My local Walmart didn't have it so I ordered it online. It arrived in good condition having been shipped well.
It is easy to install. The satellite speakers provide great surround sound. Itis much more than just a soundbar with subwoofer. It will run me out of my 16 x 16 living room if I let it.
Listening to my ipod is also enjoyable. I hope this helps.

Review 16 for VIZIO VHT510 5.1 Surround Sound Home Theater with Wireless Subwoofer

Almost Perfect

I recently purchased a 47" VIZIO LCD Flat Panel TV and this sound system (separately). The sound is fantastic. My only complaint so far is that even though both products are made by Vizio, the input and output jacks are not very compatible. For instance, the sound-bar only has two options for sound input; analog (red and white jacks) or Digital Audio Optical. It doesn't have HDMI. The Vizio HDTV options for audio output are HDMI, Digital Audio Optical, and stereo output jack. It DOES NOT have an analog audio out (red and white) jack. So that truly only leaves ONE option: Digital Audio Optical. Once I figured THAT out, the set up was a breeze. I had to spend an hour trying to figure out why my analog cable wasn't working. One would think that if it's made by the same manufacturer that all of the input and output jacks would be in synch, giving the user multiple sound options. This is not the case. It could be that the TV was made in Mexico, and the sound-bar was made in China. Who knows. Other than that, it offers GREAT quality (so far), and the Digital Audio Optical sound is fantastic. Movies and XBOX 360 both sound AMAZING in true surround sound!

Looked at all reviews and this is by far the best price and sound bar system out there. the rear speakers make all the difference. Had the system for four days and the LED lights are still working.

Ordered from Walmart.com,Volume Lights went out in 3 days.Steer clear this is a bad product.
Vizio also requires if you need warranty service to pay to ship it to a service center.Thank goodness for WalMart they took it back and refunded all my money.I can't speak highly enough of the great policies at WalMart they are the greatest!.Thank You WalMart!.

I received The Vizio soundbar and wireless subwoofer for Christmas 2009, which was one year and one month ago. Course it is out of warranty!
The soundbar quit working. I tried to find someone to repair it but had no luck except for Sears. They checked it out and told me that the part that went bad is not replaceable. Vizio customer service refused to help me even if it was just to recommend a solution. They informed me that because it was out of warranty and because the units were so inexpensive I should just go buy another one. In addition to that, the wireless subwoofer that came with the soundbar will not work with anything else. Calculated to work only with my soundbar.
Vizio does not stand by their product!!!!!!!!!!!

NONOVIZIO for me 2

Vizio tech (customer) support is a joke. All they did when I had a problem with a new product was to tell me the same thing I had all ready done by reading the trouble shooting guide in the book that came with the product. At least it's nice to know that Vizio hires people that can read. I returned the product to Wal Mart. Buy a Vizio product if you must, but BEWARE if there is ever a problem and there will be. For me I will be buying better products from more established manufacturing companies. I don't blame Wal Mart. They sell cheap products, that seems to be what their customers want, with no regard to quality. The saying you get what you pay for goes in spades for Vizio products.

Great little system

I received the VHT510 a couple of weeks ago was a little skeptical of ordering it.. because of the apparent LED issue .. So far though I haven't had a single problem. System had great sonic value for its size.. I must agree with the other reviews about not enough expandability, also I would suggest including an optical cable with it because I had "rca" cables of my own which I hooked to my Sharp aquos 70" and directly to the soundbar.. and no sound .. called tech support and they informed me that the only way to get sound through my soundbar was to buy an optical cable or hook each individual device directly to the soundbar .. which I didn't like cause that meant hooking and unhooking each device each time I used a different source.. but once I received the optical cable. everything worked fine and as advertised.
Other than no optical cable being included .. nor no mention of needing one for certain tvs to work properly soundbar is awesome & would recommend this to anyone .. wireless set up is a snap and works flawlessly .. Great product over all
