How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Vizio's 5.1 wireless sound bar manages to keep your living room wire-free without sacrificing too much audio performance. While critics enjoyed Vizio's wireless approach for the rear speakers, CNET noted there was an issue with the soundbar's height, saying "the S4251w-B4 might block your TV's remote sensor." When watching movies, Home Theater Review thinks the S4251w-B4 "did a very good job of immersing you in the action," while About says it provides "a very good surround sound listening experience." In spite of providing a good audio experience, PC Mag had an issue when listening to music, finding it "puts plenty of oomph behind its audio, but it isn't particularly crisp or warm."
