Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Troubling Lifespan

Jqpublic 11/26/2023

The sound connectivity and slim profile of this product are excellent for the price however there is a critical flaw with the motherboard which will likely result in this products failure just outside the warranty window. Within two years of owning this soundbar my subwoofer stopped working. Looking online many other consumers experienced the same problem. I was ultimately able to fix the subwoofer by replacing a memory module on the motherboard but this is a major foul on LG for shipping a product with widely reported failures due to a hardware flaw.

Sound Drops in/out and a Loud Knocking Sound

V808 3/29/2023

I purchased about a week ago and immediately out of the box had issues. I purchased this to replace a LG sound bar that I bought 6 years ago that has the SAME issue. Sound continuously drops in and out. I was told a firmware update with the old sound bar would fix it it did not. I was then told buying the expansion surround sound speakers would fix it it did not. But this new sound bar as that issue and an additional issue. There is a loud knocking/popping sound in that happens frequently. Ive tried everything from unplugging and replugging moving it away from the router and nothing fixes it. I only purchased an LG sound bar because I have a LG TV but never again

This is the 2nd one Ive purchased - sub died

disppointdcstmr 2/24/2023

I purchased this product to use with a LGTV and the subwoofer died less than 2 years later. I thought perhaps it was a fluke and purchased another less than a year ago and the subwoofer has died as well. 0/10 and I am out several hundred dollars. EXTREME DISAPPOINTMENT

Subwoofer stopped working after a year

Subwoofer malfunctioned 2/15/2023

I was loving my sound system when I got it but after about a year the subwoofer started to malfunction and will not pair with my sound-bar at all. I contact support and there was nothing the technician could tell me to do that I wasnt already doing. Im very disappointed in this product model: sn5yand it seems that several other customers have had the same issues with the subwoofer after the same period of time.

Subwoofer stopped working

kfisher779 1/21/2023

I was initially happy with the SN5Y for the quality sound it produced but a year after purchase I could no longer pair the subwoofer to the soundbar. I found many people with the exact same problem and despite following the recommended troubleshooting techniques the subwoofer will not work. I have multiple LG products which have all served me well until now. I would be very cautious buying this product.

Concert Quality Sound

Steve in Italy 11/16/2022

I bought this product to go with an OLED 65 that I purchased earlier in the month. The sound from the TV was great but the addition of the sound bar made it absolutely phenomenal I dont usually listen to music channels but with this sound bar I cant resist. Its like the artist are in the room with you the same goes for movies and sporting events. Incredible

Poor product

mike50368 10/3/2022

Bought this system 1/2021 and allready the sound woofer isnt working. Cant get it to work and your tech people cant help. Not impressed at all. Wont be buying another LG product though so far the 55 oled TV has performed well. In short the sound system is junk. Mr. Peloquin
