This is a BUDGET system


I'm a recording musician so I know my audio gear. As I stated in the title, this is a BUDGET system so don't expect more than that. You are essentially getting what you pay for. If you're not really an audiophile and just want to have a surround setup,...

1,000 watts of power for $1xx. For the most part, it has good treble clarity for movies and TV. They give you plenty of speaker cable length and preferences like individual speaker volume are easily adjustable. Digital coax for 5.1. Good bass response...

Very transparent subwoofer...does not produce the "punch" and "impact" you want from your home theater system. Minimal mid-frequency response. The speakers do indeed crackle when a high enough frequency is input (when playing Gears of War, the shrieks...

PHILIPS HTS3450 DivX Ultra DVD Home Theater System


A year ago, it seemed to be a good deal

It is now dead !!! After 11 months, it began to crackle for 5 to 10 minutes before being able to work. Now it just crakles

Good for a while, not a long-term investment


I would think twice before getting this system. Good bargain, but will not last very long.

When I bought it, it seemed like a great price for what I was getting

We've had this system for over a year now, but like others, I'm having serious audio problems. Now it usually takes 10-15 minutes to "warm up" which means it crackles and pops for 15 minutes and then decides to put out some sound. It's been getting...

great service and shipping as always from NewEgg

Big subwoofer, looks pretty, picture is good

recieved DOA, called philips tech support and will get a replacement in about 25 days (5 to ship there 10-15 business days to ship back). Subwoofer was completely dead and did not recieve power, sub controls other speakers so no sound at all

Buzz, Humm, Pop


I will never buy philips brand again.

Looks nice and cheap price

When it worked, it sounded pretty good if you didn't mind waiting 7 - 10 seconds for it to turn on after pressing the power button. Takes about 5 seconds for each menu item to activate once selecting. After using it for about 1 year, it now crackles...

Has its downfalls


Cons continued....You must completely stop the video and start from the beginning. There are no digital inputs/outputs. Other thoughts: Not bad for the price. This is not a high performing home theater. Don't expect to impress people with it. If you...

For the price you really can't argue. I like the style

Well where do I start...Since I've owned this for over a year now I can sorta tear this thing apart. Like others state the bass just isn't produced well. It gets distorted easily and I don't think the box was designed very well. When watching DivX/XviD...

PHILIPS HTS3450 DivX Ultra DVD Home Theater System


Good for price. But don't get if you are wanting to "impress" someone with your home theatre.

Very nice looking system

Does not produce very good bass. You can adjust the equalizer all you want, but the bass just isn't there

Great for the price


I don't use the USB port at all and that seems to be a big part of other reviews. If you're looking for a cost effective decent Home Theater in a box for a small to medium room this is a great viable option.

Low price. Two dedicated invidual aux. inputs (Aux. and TV) Progressive Scan. Above average amount of outputs and inputs for the price. Speakers reproduce mids and highs fairly well. Subwoofer has enough power for most movies and music. Has lasted over...

No eject button on the remote. Speakers break up in the high end range on some TV shows (mostly due to source audio) and in some movies and music. Subwoofer can't truly reproduce the lower two octaves. This isn't too bad considering the size of the...

Falls short


The features are there, they are just too infantile and cheap. I say wait for something better to come along.

USB input... Overall space saved

The video fed through the USB port is not smooth flowing. It tends to 'shuffle' through. Not really noticeable at first until the camera pans around in a scene. Once you notice it, you will always see it ; If you try play video from an external device...
