For some reason the soundbar is unable to be casted to its built-in chromecast when it's on Echo mode. Can be very frustrating until you even figure out why casting doesn't work as it's not mentioned anywhere and requires a thorough google search. See More
I recently got this soundbar as I wanted to upgrade my system from a cheap simple soundbar (had a basic LG one before) to something better but still within a reasonable budget since I'm not a huge audiophile. The SB3651 fit this criteria perfectly, the price was right (bought for $150 on sale) and the sound is great. Dialog is loud and clear, subwoofer works great in my decently sized living room and the surround sound is also really good making watching movies and listening to music a noticeably better experience. Having a built-in chromecast is also a huge plus for me since I can use my google home to cast directly to the soundbar, no reason to play music through the smart TV apps anymore. My only issue with the soundbar is that currently my subwoofer doesn't turn on along with the soundbar which is very frustrating but I'm pretty sure I just got a slightly defective unit so I'll probably replace it for another one and hope that it won't happen again, otherwise my review will dramatically change... Update: I exchanged the soundbar for another unit of the same model and now everything works great! See More
The remote has a small dark screen which is the only way to navigate through the menu's functions. It makes it very hard to control and change the settings. That being said, the vizio app can be used to completely replace the remote but that's only if you're willing to install yet another app on your phone. See More
