Philips HTL5120

The Philips HTL5120's distinctive design, low price, and immersive sound make it a tempting budget sound bar pick, although its sound quality isn't a good match for purists.

Toshiba SBX4250

Toshiba's SBX4250 is a sound bar with a good set of features at a decent price, but its sound quality and design are merely adequate.

REVIEW

Vizio VHT510

While we'd prefer more input options, the Vizio VHT510 adds rear speakers to the traditional sound bar design, resulting in outstanding sound quality at a very affordable price.
