Lightening deal down from £399 on Amazon, but seems to be priced around £489 at AO, Currys & PC World. Not sure how this performs as I'm looking for a great soundbar for a large room and welcome any reviews before the deal ends!

That would be the best marketing meeting of all time. Engineering: 'we have this new soundbar', Marketing: 'cool, is it any good?. Engineering :' errr.... Kinda? '

Marketing :' it's OK, we've got you covered'
:D

now £399?

Another Lightning Deal now, but this time the product is £329.00.

It was also £329.00 on two occasions in December 2016 (without a Lightning Deal being active).

If that was a question, then I already have this product (with two LG Music Flow H7 speakers connected to provide surround sound) & can attempt to answer any (further) questions you may have.

Thanks, how good is this, is it worth it? I did order and its coming tomorow. But could always send it back un opened.

I cannot tell you if, to you, it is worth what you paid for it, especially given your financial circumstances (& any interest payments you will need to make, or any hardship you will experience because of your frivolous spending), but when combined with the Android LG Music Flow "app", &/or the MS-Windows desktop application (downloaded from the LG [UK] web site), I am finding the system very useful. Much louder & faster start-up time compared to the previous LG Soundbar I replaced (when the subwoofer went "pop" just before Christmas). That was almost three years old though, so improvements are to be expected.

I stream audio from my laptop, or from my mobile telephone handset, using the Soundbar's Bluetooth connection.

The Google Cast feature from my Android handset (or tablet) is also useful.

I have also set-up a music server so that I can play audio files using my TV as the visual interface for the selection process.

The MS-Windows application additionally provides this feature, as well as offering further configuration settings that are difficult to achieve using the Android "app".

Set-up "out-of-the-box" was very easy, but you will need to find the instruction manual upon the LG (UK) web site if you encounter a problem because the product box did not contain anything useful in this respect.

I have my Soundbar connected with an Ethernet cable to my (Wi-Fi) router, & by optical cable to my LG HD-TV (& selecting "LG Sound Sync (Optional)" as the input device).

The subwoofer is connected wirelessly to the Soundbar, & the two satellite (surround) speakers connected to the system wirelessly too.

The whole system creates a single wireless network that all other LG Music Flow-enabled hardware can connect to.

Downsides:
The Soundbar is quite long, & sits in front of my 42-inch HD-TV. The TV stand I use holds the TV fine, but the Soundbar now hangs off both ends because of its length.

Connection of the surround speakers can be hit'n'miss, especially if the wireless network is prone to dropping (as mine does at least once per day).

I regularly have to use the Android "app" to disconnect the two extra speakers, & re-connect them again, before any sound can be heard from the system. That may not be a problem in your set-up though, not least that you do not have any additional speakers presently.

I recently (just a few days ago) changed the wireless channel the LG Music Flow network uses, & this has improved the connection issues. I suspect there is just too many other wireless-based hardware in my local area, & somebody else's wireless signals were sharing "my" bandwidth channel.

Finally, I couldn't get the "LG Sound Sync (Wireless)" input device to work at all with the new Soundbar, but it worked fine with my old one! I gave up trying, & that is why I am using an optical cable, but it may be that I just haven't found the correct way to set-up the new Soundbar so far. As I said, instructions provided with the product were next-to-useless.

Cheers, I have just set it up and am really impressed. Looks and sounds great, intact -I will look out for the h3 to complete a system next month. thanks for your help.
