I remember the blue light (static, not moving or flashing) indicates which surround mode you are in. 1 blue means straight Stereo, 2 blue means the same surround mode of the SB16, 3 blue is the exclusive virtual surround mode for SB30. However, if you see blue/purple lights while trying to change volume (instead of white moving lights), then it is not normal and should go for an exchange.
I like this soundbar. It can sound very good (for my standard), but lacks volume in dialogue in some movies if you use the virtual surround at its widest output without any Dolby Volume. But that depends on the movie's sound mix. Some movies sound perfectly fine as is, others I have to bump up the Dolby Volume or lower the virtual surround room size to make the dialogues louder. Also, I noticed randomly, it has some split second of junk noise when the blu-ray switch tracks (black screen from trailers to movie) or in PS3 when I browsing menus. Not a biggy, but would be nicer when it is silent at all times when there is no audio playing. Little imperfection, but I like its performance.
