Best buy has this bar for sale at $248.99

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/vizio-5-...d=abcat0205007

I bought it from Amazon for 499.99 last week, its now listed on Amazon for 399.99. I contacted Amazon using their chat support function, I was able to get them to credit my account $200 so I got the bar for $299.99. Not bad I guess. Still crazy that the price has fluctuated that much in less than a week.

Since Sam's will only do a price match within 7 days and I ordered mine on 8/1/14, I packed up and returned the one I ordered online and bought one for the discounted price in store. They could prevent returns with a 30 day price match.. Heck they have a 90 day return policy.

That's lame, they should do a 30 day price match at least. Anyway, how are you liking your Vizio system? Do you think it can fill a medium sized living room up with sound? Can the Subwoofer shake the room some? I'm thinking of picking up this set this weekend. Any feedback would be nice.

Absolutely loving it. Replaced a Bose 321 series ii system with it and couldn't be happier. I have the surround option and true volume option on in the settings and with the sub at its default level it sounds great.. Of course you can adjust the gain on the sub for heart pounding bass. IMO. Here is a pic of the soundbar mounted to the top of my 60" Vizio E600i-b3

You guys are lucky, we can't get these up in Canada without paying a crap load for shipping.

I am currently not a member of Sams Club, but was wondering how often those $100 savings come around?

If I see it again, I will definitely get a family member to order this soundbar, because $286 is by far the cheapest I've seen it

Are you able to adjust the bass output on this model? I don't want to wake up the kids if I"m watching an action movie at night!

Bass Control

The soundbar does have Bass control. I t also has a dedicated "Night Mode" that reduces Bass.

Just picked this up (54") for $260 shipped via Amazon - hope someone here scores the same deal.

I had to get on live chat to claim this deal because the promotional discount (save $120 with prime) did not apply in my cart.

1. Sign-up for free prime membership (trial).

2. Start live chat with Amazon

3. State the Prime promo is not applying in cart and they will tell you to place the order and will credit the $120 instantly.

4. Order price $300+$79.99shipping - $120 Promo = A STEAL at $260.

I asked if this was an error as the rep originally told me that the Prime discount should only be $20, he responded saying today only, 1 per customer.

True 5.1 surround sound?

Since this 54 inch 5.1 Soundbar has HDMI, does this solve the problem of a Vizio TV not passing true 5.1 surround sound when the TV is acting as a switcher?

I own the Vizio M602i-B3.
