The kids are mostly gone, being that two are in college and 21 and 19 and aren't home too much. But there is a little pumpkin left at home that is 13. She can figure out the remotes but simpler is always better for the remotes because then my mom can use it when she comes.
Both of those Vizios seem to get so-so reviews and I could spend a bit more.
No, the Vizio's do not require a receiver, they are built in.
As far as bad Vizio reviews, the older Vizio's got some bad reviews because of the big failure rate of the LED lights,,,, the newest Vizio VHT215 does not have those problems,,,, I auditioned the Vizio VHT215 at home and was quite impressed with it,,, in my opinion its one of the best soundbars out there right now with the best features at a great price.
If your looking for the best sound from a bar then my pick would be the Polk 6000 (I also demoed the 6000 at home) a great soundbar but its short on features and connection options.
If money is no object,, then dare I say the new Bose SR1 that I demoed in-store yesterday franky blew me away,,,,, I know everyone here HATES Bose but I gota say that Bose SR1 sounded AMAZING,,,, but its $1500.00.
Hope that helped a bit more.
