4.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff, 25 Jun 2014
I have one of these in the UK and use it for TV sound via HDMI ARC and my Sony TV drives the sound bar well My Apple TV is linked to the sound bar via the TV and HDMi and direct via TOSLINK allowing me to play iTunes through from my iPhone or Macs without having the TV set on - wonderful (I have to use the Samsung remote to turn the sound bar on this way) but other than that in either mode the driving device'e remote control TV or iPhone controls the sound bar - excellent. My only slight issue with the bar is one can't change the valves (as we call tubes here) seemingly - a shame. I think the device is great, turn down the LEDs lighting the base of the valves and you can see the cathode heaters. Its not audiophile kit but it is infinitely better than the speaker in my telly and I haven't need to get a room full of plasticky 5.1 speakers + cables. Recommended.

Recommended (though not at the price its currently advertised at here - have a look on the net)

A great way of making baguettes in a domestic oven - good non stick and dead easy to use - recommended.

The best bit of kit for a home baker - hugely improves the first bounce (the amount the loaf rises when first put in the oven), my stone is now warped, discoloured and grubby but I love it - all of our family's bread comes off it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor software and limited hardware support, 18 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No idea how good the product is as it isn't supported on Power PC architecture Macs - which isn't mentioned on any packaging, spec sheets or instructions. I have one very disappointed 11 year old who has just exictedly opened it.

Its now working on my laptop (Intel Mac Book Pro) (rather than my son's Mac G5 machine) and it has issues with the included software not recognising the iTunes library and has to be driven out of the "explorer" window.

The unit has now failed after about two hour's continuous use and will be returned - all in all a poor product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic piece of kit, 7 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As we live in the bottom of a valley with no FM or DAB signal this is a god send. Very easy to set up, great sound and very robust quality construction are all impressive features.

No more hisssss on the radio in our house now

Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 26 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a really good book covering all the basics right up to more advanced techniques too. The Laser product placement jars a bit but that is only a small criticism of a readable, understandable guide to a great sport.

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid, 5 Dec 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Utter rubbish, the web interface is very flaky and the device needs to be powered down between each "apply" process. The instructions are beyond useless and the range extension when you do final get it going isn't great either.

Its a pity they don't do no stars for reviews.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pity they don't do no stars, 5 Jan 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lite On have wasted a great lead here with this piece of untested rubbish. We have just returned our second one of these to Amazon (great after sales service by the way) and bought the Sony version.
Both machines failed with completely random operation and the second one also needed the door to be prised open if a DVD had been left in and the machine put on standby.
We had updated the firmware on both machines.
The remote control is a bit cheap too.
I would be very sure you want the extra 90GB before getting one!
