Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

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.

Great Sound

Julius from FL 2/9/2021

I both the sound bar and an LG TV and hooked them up. The sound bar was relatively easy to set up via the instruction on the TV screen. It also connects easily with my phone to play music. 5 stars on the sound. Deep bass and it gets me pretty immersed when playing movies. The loss of a star is due to the connection between the Sound Bar and the TV. It intermittently doesnt turn on or connect with the TV when I turn the TV on like 20 of the time then I have to find the Sound Bar remote to turn it on then go to settings on the TV and select audio output. A small inconvenience to an otherwise great product.

Horrible.

John357 1/13/2021

I purchased this LG surround bar and sub woofer set on August 17th 2020 from BestBuy only to find out that ANY ONE WITHIN REACH of my soundbar can log in through bluetooth turn my system on and off at any time of the day and play music. This is horrible. I have been awaken from my sleeping in the middle of the night disturbed while watching any show or movie on tv or streaming and totally disturbed by this system not allowing bluetooth to be locked to prevent access for ANY AND EVERYBODY that can view this device on their bluetooth. I want a refund. This product is the worst that myself and LG customer since 2009 has ever purchased.

Unusable

RickL99 12/29/2020

I bought this sound bar back in October and immediately from the start the subwoofer kept cutting in and out from the sound bar. I didnt have it around any other electronics other than the TV and I could even get through an episode of a show without it cutting in and out several times. I eventually ended up returning it because I couldnt find a soulution.
