It's all about the bass ... and only the bass.
from Austin, TX
Comments about LG 120W 4.1ch SoundPlate with Subwoofer and Bluetooth Connectivity:
The bass response is incredible. If that's the only audio signal present, but music with treble sounds horribly washed out, compared to speakers which have a more complete audio range.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great sound but interface needs improvement
from Guatemala City, Guatemala
I got this a couple of months ago at a local store, I think it improves the sound of movies and TV shows, however the interface needs a little improvement: - It should turn on automatically when receiving optical signal. - One LED to show current status? come on, I need more information without having to press the remote's buttons to figure out it's current status, I need more display information: - Current volume level. - Is Cinema sound on/off. - Current Input mode (Optical / Bluetooth).
Great upgrade from TV sound
Full rich sound from relatively small unit. Bluetooth and Optical fiber input only.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Amazing product for reasonable rate
from Jersey City, NJ, USA
I bought 2 LG LAP sound systems and both of the sound systems are excellent. My family is enjoying with the sound quality, compact design, easy installation, user friendly and excellent support. I highly recommend this product for all music lovers.

Perfect fit for my Set-up
from United States
I love this Sound Plate! I really enjoy that unlike a sound bar, with this sound plate my LG 47" flat screen TV sits on top of the plate with very little extra space necessary, approximately 5" of additional space to the width of either side of the TV's Base plate stand and no additional space to the depth# Also, the height for which it will raise your TV is extremely minimal at just 1#5", overall dimensions = #12.5"D x 27.5"W x 1.5H#. All of which adds up to a space conserving sound system which sits in a solid, stationary position. The Surround Sound is fantastic as are the Built-in Subwoofers which together provides an added movie theatre sound affect when the "Cinema-Sound" feature is turned on. Additionally, since my TV is also an LG product, the TV and Sound Plate automatically communicate and integrate with one another thereby relegating my manual hands on set-up and adjustments to simply Plugging the Sound Plate into the wall socket and the single optical cable into the back of the TV and then turning off the TV speaker so as to have 100% of my sound experience coming solely from the Sound Plate itself..... Whew ;^) With this convenient non-space intrusive surround sound system with subwoofers and the Cinema Sound feature, you can't go wrong.

Big sound from a small package
from Baltimore, MD, USA
Very well designed. Looks great, use it in my bedroom with a 55" LG TV. Hardly noticeable, until you crank it up. Wow, sounds amazing.
Muffled voices & Bluetooth issues.

Let me start this review by 100% honestly stating that I'm just glad like my other electronics that I bought this from PC Richard & Son where they have a 30 day try it and like it policy on soundbars and gladly allowed me to exchange it. I love PC Richard & Son as they are not pressure sales minded and honestly want you to be satisfied with your purchase...LG LAP340 Soundplate: Disappointed: Bluetooth connectivity issues."January 25, 2015Disappointed: Bluetooth connectivity issues. and voice clarity issues... I bought this unit as I love LG, I have their 47" TV and an LG Android phone and even an LG Air Conditioner so the SoundPlate was an obvious first choice for a Subwoofer-less sound bar for connectivity using the LG Sound Sync. A shame that the sound quality was so muffled and the sound plate allows virtually zero adjustments. Other than a Cinema Mode there are no adjustments to Bass Treble or sound modes just on or off. As to Bluetooth you would think it would connect instantly with a LG Android phone yet it refused to connect and trying it with a friend's Samsung Galaxy was no better. I spent nearly 30 minutes speaking with an LG Customer Service representative and it took her a while to understand the issue being a Bluetooth connectivity one and despite this her advice kept going back to try another Bluetooth device with the phone which I did and knew it wasn't my LG phone but the Soundplate. She suggested I return to the store I purchased it from and that in itself infuriated me that LG feels its best if they can't solve your problem on the phone to dump it back on the retailer. What was great was the understanding by the salesman Manny at PC Richard and Son in Norwalk CT who showed me several alternatives including one from Bose, one from Polk and the Samsung Soundbar which while not as lean in look sounds 1000% better on voices and with the separate wireless subwoofer puts out way better bass. I was actually happy to pay slightly more money to get a much better Sound Bar. It's clear with LG that this is a first generation product for LG and their rush to the market shows. Form wise its a great unique slimline device that sits under your TV and has no separate subwoofer just two drivers on the bottom of this flat clean looking device. While at the end of the day I could have lived without the ability to stream Bluetooth music from my phone or tablet but to have a device where despite volumes voices are hard to hear and voice clarity is awful makes this unit nearly worthless. Its clear LG rushed the soundplate to the market as it fails on so many levels. Makes me rethink LG as the company of choice and that Samsung ain't as bad as I used to think. This may be the last LG product I buy

This sound plate is amazing, theater sound with bass without having to hook up an additional speaker, two thumbs up! Connections flawless, performance 100%, what more do I need to say? Pair with any LG TV and your done, oh, and listen to the sound from game consoles, might as well be in the game yourself!
Better than the TV speakers
from Byram Township, NJ
About Me Audiophile, Movie Enthusiast, Tech Savvy
Bought this for my upstairs TV, I have a complete home theater downstairs and needed something basic for this TV. Love that the TV sits ON the plate, this frees up the space in front where a normal sound bar sits. Sound is better than the TV speakers alone but sadly bass and treble are not adjustable (my TV disables these when using optical out) and the sound plate is a bit bass heavy. There are a few times where it obscures dialog but for other things like watching Qello concerts, the sound is amazing! Way better than the TV speakers for music. Overall I am very satisfied for this as a basic sound upgrade. If this is your primary home theater set up, I would look elsewhere however.
