Eh? Any idea why your deal disappeared and re-appeared? I re-posted it on behalf of you mentioning you in the description and now your deal has re-appeared.
Edited by: "tiggerloveslife" 5th May 2016
Anyway in case my version of the deal is deleted I'll copy & paste the relevant info about reviews here for those that may be interested and in advance of the naysayers :

I read through the reviews on John Lewis, Tesco, Amazon and Currys before a) buying...

Amazon only 12 reviews and one is complaining about the state of the item received from a third party seller, 1 about Bluetooth not working and 2 about incompatibility with particular TVs.
Link:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/LG-LAS350B-Channel-Soundbar-Subwoofer/dp/B00VLS4KTC/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1462425759&sr=8-2&keywords=LG+LAS350B

Reviews on Currys are also generally favourable with a average of 8.4/10 but again there's only 13 reviews...couple of complaints about no optical cable being included.

Reviews seem to be quite reasonable on Tesco (4.6/5.0 for 50 reviews):

tesco.com/dir…_lg soundbar

And John Lewis (4.7/5.0 for 26 reviews):
http://www.johnlewis.com/lg-las350b-2-1-bluetooth-sound-bar-with-wired-subwoofer/p1981501

I guess it depends on what your expectations are and I doubt you'd get a better soundbar for the same price but happy to be proved wrong...put it this way I figure it has to be better than the 20W Goodmans one I got ages ago from Tesco for £29

I thought these would be connected by a HDMI cable alone,didn't realise you need an optical as well.

Apparently you do according to some of the reviews which also state that it isn't included in the box...think there is something about being able to link it using Bluetooth if your TV is compatible but didn't pay too much attention to this bit as knew I was going to need an optical cable....

​They dont have hdmi. only optical. so no cec for volume control
Very good price indeed, heated!

Can't believe how cheap these are getting. I thought I had a bargain with the Goodmans Soundbar and Sub set a couple of months back at £39. While I have no complaints at all, around £10 more for an LG set of a clearly higher quality is a no brainer in my book....
How much would an optical cable be

Can pick one up off eBay for £1 - £2

I'm not too sure where you get this idea from as the reviews I've read seem ok...yes it's not a top of the range product but then you'd pay a lot more for it...

Mmm guessing you didn't read all the reviews that I posted to look at above...going to have to re-post it:

I have an LG TV and I can control the LG soundbar through the optical cable with my TV remote. Maybe LG only though as you have an LG option in settings?

Apparently there's also some kind of App you can use to control it...does anybody have experience of this?
Showing as out of stock in Northern Ireland for me sadly. Although it does mean that the wife won't give me grief for arriving home with another sound bar without telling her i was buying it (in my defence it's only because she would say no).
Just got this price matched at JL over the phone. 2yrs guarantee. Happy days..

Edited by: "top_spotter" 5th May 2016
Does it have an Aux input? For plugging in the chromecast audio
why dont a lot of places have adequate photos of the connections on the rear of things? so annoying
Showing as OOS at most stores but managed to reserve the last one at Colchester
I already have this but was hoping to pick one up for the parents. Nearest stock I could find to me was in Currys / PC World at Reading Gate... just 50 miles away But there's stock there if anyone's keen and nearby.

I submitted a price match on-line in the very early hours...suspect they'll wait until there's none available anywhere and then tell me they can't price match as it's OOS....mind you have taken a screenshot to show that it was in stock and also have my confirmation of my Currys order email I can forward to them so keeping my fingers crossed...ordered 3 early this morning...1 for me, 1 for my parents and 1 for my sister but wanted another one to give to someone else as a present so hopefully JL will come through...if not not the end of the world

Apparently it's still available from PCWorld in Kirkcaldy and Currys in Aberdeen for us Scotties

Was going to say the same earlier!

It sold well when it was reduced [in the real world and sold for the higher price, not mickey mouse rrp] from
£129 to £79 and as UM20 has stated the sound on these and features included are very, very good for a
soundbar + sub ;-)

Previous thread with info / reviews / spec / blahdyblah:

Even better buy! Well done!

Yes it has got aux in.. LG call in *portable in* and we have tried it with Gplay + CCA and
it worked a treat ;-)

HEAT+ on this price for this model, the soundbar is packed with features, connections and the
music flow app for controlling the device is brilliant, you can also match this lg soundbar with
any lg tv via the wireless link, which means you have the OPTICAL or AUX still free for other
sound / amp / blahdyblah input..

Also, this pairs with 3 bluetooth devices NOT 2 like most, again these are BT4, you also get
the wall bracket in the box, which means you can put it on the bracket near or under your
wall mounted tv, but still move it if you want to put it / use it somewhere else ;-)

Amazing bit if kit for under a nifty and also, in my humble opinion, much better than some
pc surround 5 speaker kits that are 4 times the price.. the DTS digital surround Via the
optical link output is brilliant for what it is and the subwoofer is deep enough for all those
scary bits in Texas Chainsaw Massacre and *Banging* enough for all your Chuuuunnes!

Yep, its cool, perfect for using as a remote, but you get a really featured remote with it as well, would not
let the fact that you cannot turn c.rappy old sky boxes up and down with it, be a reason not to buy it at
this stupid cheap price!
Sold out everywhere. That's a shame

Whey-hey someone confirming a positive experience using it as someone keeps saying the reviews aren't good but I thought they were perfectly reasonable but then I'm not expecting full blast me out of my seat cinema surround sound quality

Well someone has to take one for the team Tigger!

Would ignore all the c.rappy reviews, for £80 it was a blooming great buy, for £50 new it is a steal!
The main thing some [not all] buyers on hukd forget, is a lot of the items that are *cheap* are just
that, this is a top manufacturer, who has been making kit for over 50 years now.. yes they were
garbage components in the 90's, throughout their whole range but now, brilliantly put together kit
with a view to the item lasting more than a week!!!

Being one of hukd's un-official *uniquegeeks* [still waiting for my badge Jen!!] can honestly say
that this is "almost" as good as the GDSBT150OP soundbar + subwoofer deal I posted a little
while again, the goodmans is slightly louder and has a touch more "bass" flat out.. but as you
have stated it is not a million pound 22 to 1 surround system costing the earth either!

Fired up the new Mad Max 4K ultra hd blu-ray with this whilst testing it, prior to going back to
Soundblaster Creative iRoar [now that IS a speaker!!!] and having seen it at the cinema with
thx 5k surround, it sounded fantastic for what it is..!

Oh dear.. the one that we have just ordered, paid for and had collected for gifting to someone, must be it then!

But it cannot be.. as just ordered and paid for another and here is one [confirmed with store in stock] about to
be purchased in North Yorkshire!

Hereford just advised me they are ex display items so I cancelled my click and collect reservation.

Glad o bought new from tesco when £79
Just recently bought lg nb2540 for £69 and loving it. Seems a pretty similar spec. to this one. Hot! Hot! Hot!
How's this compare with the Samsung hw j355 ?
My Tv is LG and has the sound sync wireless option so could connect this without optical lead. Is there any benefit to doing this apart from not having to use the extra cable (which i have anyway) i take it the soundbar requires a power lead so will need to put that in trunking anyway..... Just wondering if the optical lead will produce a better sound then the wireless connectivity ?
My lg tv would not connect through Bluetooth, so I had to buy the optical lead, Lg have since come back to tell me I need a dongle and a magic remote to make it work wirelessly
