With its S4251W-B4 42-inch 5.1 Home Theater System, Vizio has succeeded in creating a speaker system based around a soundbar that provides true surround sound, and for a not too outrageous price, too. Wired praised its ease of use and great sound with huge, noisy scenes, but also pointed out that soft dialogue can be hard to hear and bass is weak. Still, a superb system.

The Vizio S4251W-B4 might offer real surround sound thanks to its physical satellites, but its sound quality can't compete with rivals such as Sony's HT-CT260, which is more affordable. IT Reviews weren't too fond of its styling either, and said that LG's NV3730A is more appealing thanks to its online services. Mediocre and overpriced, the S4251W-B4 struggles to make a case for itself.
