Unless it's possible to purchase a protection plan, I don't see this being a better deal than Newegg's main site that costs $15 more.

Newegg seems to be dropping this by $5 every few weeks. Very tempting.

Right below "buy it now", "add to cart" and "watch" - add a 3-year Squaretrade warranty for $20.99. Squaretrade will probably cover this for even less if you purchase a warranty directly through their site and use a coupon.

I see $150 on new egg, this is $20 cheaper, or am I missing something?

You're right - it jumped up from $135. Considering that, this is cheaper.

Very nice soundbar. I've owned it for several months. Nice all-around sound, gets very loud. Was surprised how well this set handles music as well, considering there's no dedicated tweeters, the highs and mids are there. Voices also come through strong and are easy to hear. Wish the bass was a bit punchier, but it's still pretty good and gets the job done. Just make sure to crank it in all the settings. "Surround" mode is disappointing. Makes it sound a bit muffled and seems to diminish the bass as well. I always keep mine in Stereo mode and it works great.

Just bought it. CNET review was very good. Hopefully this is true.

Thanks OP! Have been looking to get an entry level soundbar. Was going to buy the Vizio SB3621, but got this instead.

I am in the same boat but lean toward Vizio SB3621 as it is newer. What was your reasons to go with the YAS-203?

I'm no expert at this, so my reasons were from the impressions I get from the reviews and price.

1. Reviews seem to criticize Vizio's bass more than Yamaha's.
2. Something about Vizio not decoding DTS but only provides DTS sound? (I'm not too technical on this.)
3. A main CON of Yamaha is no HDMI input, which Vizio doesn't have either.
4. Yamaha has better/more features.
5. LED display is not great on the Y, but it's pretty much useless on the V.
6. The Y has wider range of frequency response.
7. Overall impression is that the sound from Y won't be worse than the V. And the V is rated so high because of the price point. The sound is great at this price point, but if it was retailed at the same price point as the Y, will it still get this good of a review?

I'm not an audiophile. So basically, if the Y wasn't at this same price as the V, I would go with the V. And given that the Y is selling for more than $200 everywhere else (and the V is not on sale now), I just went ahead with the Y.

This is better than most $200 soundbar. I bought it used from Amazon warehouse around $145.

I bought this last time it popped up. Solid sound bar for the price. The smart app for control is a nice bonus, even if it is Bluetooth connection only
