3 Star Review  cnet.com - Feb 25, 2013

THE GOOD: The <b>Toshiba SBX4250</b> is loaded with features, including built-in Bluetooth, two HDMI inputs, and two optical inputs. It also has onboard Dolby Digital decoding, which can be useful in a few cases. The included remote is nicely designed, with plenty of options for adjusting sound. THE BAD: The SBX4250s sound quality is just average and its styling is pedestrian. THE BOTTOM LINE: Toshibas SBX4250 is a sound bar with a good set of features at a decent price, but its sound quality and design are merely adequate.

Toshiba SBX4250 Sound Bar
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Do you know what it feels like when you see something that cost way too much for what its worth but still end up buying it? Do you know what it feels like when that something starts failing? Well, now I know I will never buy another Toshiba again. The Sound Bar Speaker System (SBX4250) I bought a couple months ago started making a loud pop every now and then. The sound bar works perfectly fine until you turn the sub on. I honestly hate this annoying pop the sub occasionally makes and hope they can come with a solution.

Not Great Sound even for low end.
2 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Very easy to set up. Haven't used BT very much but it was fine. Sub didn't cut out. However, sub Vibrates and over dominates. Bar alone isn't much better than TV and just learned you need to reset treble/base each time. My wife, who is hard of hearing in one ear, can't hear conversation with the sub on. Never had a problem with Toshiba products before but not meeting expectations. Going to take it back and spend the money for a higher end product.

DO NOT BUY!! WORST DEVICE EVER!!
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Worst device ever!!!!! DO NOT BUY!!! I bought this device in July 2013 and by November 2013 it died. Completely stopped working. The warranty is only 90 days so there is nothing I can do with it. It is a big paper weight that will be going in the trash. DO NOT BUY!! The sad part is I loved it while it worked. The sound was excellent. Soon after I bought it the sound began to go in and out for a second or two ever so often. Without warning it just stopped working completely. WORST DEVICE EVER!!!

Subwoofer quit working
2 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

After less than a year of use the subwoofer quit working. It will connect to the soundbar but will not put out any sound. Very frustrating and expensive to ship back to Toshiba. I don't think I'll be purchasing another one with the Toshiba brand name.

Bluetooth/Wireless Sub - Terrible!!
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I purchased this sound bar with my first flat screen TV 6 months ago and the fact that it had blue tooth was the sole reason I chose this one over the others. What a mistake! I am constantly regretting not taking it back to the store!! I bought it to stream music from my iPhone and to watch movies. It unfortunately is my only source of good sound. Blue tooth constantly cuts out, even with phone sitting still and within 2 feet of sound bar. Annoying and embarrassing to the point that I don't even want to turn it on when guests are over and again...my only source of stereo sound. If that wasn't bad enough, the sub woofer which is only a foot away from the sound bar also cuts in and out constantly no matter what I'm playing...movies, music & TV. I am so disappointed with this product. I will NEVER AGAIN buy a Toshiba product,,,ever!!! A complete waste of hard earned $ and I bought it for full price. By the sounds of some of the other reviews, I should consider myself lucky that blue tooth/wireless sub woofer cutting in and out are my only issues. Sheesh!

Best system for the money
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

The first unit I had was a little short on bluetooth , and I had difficulty installing optical cables to the point I could no longer install the cables. Got on their web site, told them my problem and within two weeks they sent me a new system. This unit works great including the bluetooth. I would recommend this to anyone.

Problems after 3 months
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I have the SBX4250KN model. Unit worked great at first. But, for the past few weeks the sound would cut in and out for a while when first turned on. Unit was connected to tv by an optical cable. This week the unit finally died while I was watching tv. Had the unit for a total of 3 months.

Nice SB for the common user.
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I bought this sb from best buy several months ago and have have no problems. Make sure you use the ARC connection for trouble free usage and turn on the CEC option on your tv. For the price this is a nice sounding sb for your regular all around tv watching and game playing. I would buy another.

ARC useless with Sharp TV
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Bought this because it was on sale at BB, and I had been looking at various brands. As it turns out, ARC does not work reliably with my Sharp LC-60-LE640. Every time you turn on the TV, you have to use the bar remote to re-select ARC. That would be irritating enough, but about half the time it won't stay on ARC, rotating to the next input setting, so no sound until you fool with it for ten minutes. I finally got disgusted with that and now just use the RCA connections on both devices, but that means manual everything. I wish I had just taken it back and gone to another brand, but I waited too long.

Great features, terrible product
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I've had this for about 2 months, the sub stopped working last night. I tried all the "troubleshooting" tips, even swapped cables and moved the whole thing to another room; it's dead. Setup was easy, the bar found the sub, the ARC features worked great with my TV, all was well - till the sound bar cycled on with the TV but didn't play. The signal was going from TV to sound bar, but nothing came from the sound bar. I had to cycle the sound bar off/on to get sound to start. And bluetooth works well, so long as you don't touch the bluetooth device - and it is less than 2 feet from the sound bar. Sound quality was pretty good. I really like the features, just hate the problems. This will be my last Toshiba product!

High Pitch Squeal
2 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

After a month or so a high pitch squeal has begun to sound from my sound bar, initially i thought it may be the cable box but it occurs on all HDMI inputs with my PS3 or PC connected as well. I changed cables and the only thing left to change is the soundbar. I wouldn't buy this, I've only had it for 4 months and its already playing up.

good tv value but....
3 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I also purchased this to bt music to and its useless for that because its cuts out constantly. It should power back up when the audio signal is received again also. If none of that is important to you then go for it.

Great Sound - Annoying "Features"
3 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I bought this soundbar for use with my Toshiba TV and I am quite happy with the sound quality. It is, however, the most annoying electronic component that I own. While it is nice that it powers down by itself when there is no audio input, it would be nice for it to power itself back up when audio input returns! This is the only audio component that I have ever seen that "forgets" its settings when you turn it off. And since my uVerse remote is incompatible with this unit, I need to keep both remotes handy to restore the audio settings.

Doesn't Last!
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Right from the start we were only able to connect using audio cables, the HDMI wouldn't work. We kept it anyway and then 2 wks later we began hearing a high pitched "whirring" sound and then there was no sound at all. Also as earlier posters said the BT cuts out frequently when using a moving iphone. We will be seeking a refund!

Incompatible tv and sound bar
2 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

WE bought a 55" Toshiba TV and a sound bar since we had heard that it might be needed with that tv. The sound bar works, but it cannot work in front of the tv where you would normally put it, and we could not find any tv consoles that have a slot long enough for the 371/4 inch sound bar. We are extremely frustrated by this apparently very poor design incompatibility!

Display does not work
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Hi Guys! I just bought this sound bar in the US (since I'm from Mexico) and tried it for the first time with no issues. Once at home, I'm trying to start it with no succes; whenever I power it on, the display does not work, hence I cannot connect it with anything. Has anyone experienced something like this?

Bluetooth cuts out?
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Just started using bluetooth today. Connected to iphone and it worked just fine. Then connected via ipad Bluetooth and the bt connection cut out several times. Powered down and then powered up the sound bar, reconnected iPhone Bluetooth and it worked for a minute or so and cut out, kept retrying but it keeps cutting out. Any suggestions? Thanks

Nice Soundbar
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I was impressed by the power and sound this moderately priced sound bar puts out. I researched many different ones before I made my purchase. Sound is only lacking on the mid range sounds. Reviews were right about the bluetooth range. When I was about 12 feet away from the unit i had to hold my iphone/ipad still or else sound would cut out. not a huge deal but if you're looking to walk around the house and use bluetooth it probably won't work.

Love this Soudbar
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I bought this system because I wanted a Sound System that can be controlled via the TV Remote-Can't beat it. The Oper manual could use a little more info

Best sound quality
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

If you are looking for a sound bar surround system with a wireless sub woofer where you can play bluetooth music right from your Iphone buy this piece. This sound bar has the best quality sound. You can adjust settings from your remote like treble, bass and sub woofer. It took me 5 mins to hook up with my Sony TV. Every time I watch a movie it feel like I am sitting in a theater. Love it

Great Choice
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I purchased this product because they were sold out of the SONY one that I wanted. I am pleasantly surprised. This sound bar with the combo of the wireless sub-woofer has great sound! The Blu-tooth works good but the device has to be pretty close to the system to work effectively. It has 2 HDMI inputs as well as 2 Optical inputs. all my devices sound great on this including my Xbox, Blu Ray player, and Cable TV. Gets very loud without any noise distortion. I don't generally need to turn it past 25-30 for max awesomeness, and it can reach up to 50. The sub-woofer is great because it is controlled by the bar. You can adjust the bass as well as the woofer volume. The remote is very simple to use as well. I recommend this product to anyone that wants a great sound system without the hassle of setting up a 5.1 system.
