I'm not sure if I should keep the VHT210 (still in the box just in case I have to return it) or the subwoofer-less VSB200.
Stick with the VHT210 as it decodes Dolby Digital and that does make a big difference.
I owned the first gen Vizio bar w/sub and loved it,,, but the new'er VHT210 is WAY better soundwise and surround effect wise as well,,, and a better remote too.
I cant stress enough how much better off you will be keeping the VHT210,, it is a very big improvment over the VSB200.
Un-box it, set it up and keep it,,,, you should be very happy with it,,,, just make sure to have your DVD, BluRay or what ever you are using set correctly for the audio feed.
A big mistake many people make is getting a soundbar or any system for that matter and not correctly setting the audio feeds.
