Default Dolby Atmos - LG SK9Y and LG SK10Y Soundbars: Are they good?

First thing, there isn't much room space to put full speaker system, so I considered to buy Dolby Atmos Soundbar.
So, I looked into it and saw "LG SK9Y and LG SK10Y Soundbars"

Are they good or what?

PS.1:
I should have said: I was only looking for Dolby Atmos Soundbar, not DTS-X ones.

The LGs have got some very poor reviews for their price range and don't do DTS-X. Mind you, if you can get the discontinued model the SJ9 for dirt cheap it could be worth considering that.

Look into the Samsung N850 or for wireless rears and true surrounds the N950. These are the two best Atmos bars on the consumer-end market right now. Like all such bars though they are dependant on your room layout for the Atmos effect to work. If you have a simple plaster ceiling and reasonably square room layout you're fine.

Thanks for reply.

I already have SJ9 and was looking to buy another one for different room that is same size is room that I asked about.

Also, I should have said: I was "only" looking for LG cause Atmos, not DTS-X.

SK9Y or SK10Y has wireless rear, LG SPK8-S, in case you didn't know.

What about the new Vizio Soundbar that just released 36'VIZIO SB36512-F6 5.1 for $500 with 2 rears included. Also the $1000 version just released i think or coming out
VIZIO SB46514-F6 46-Inch 5.1.4. Any reviews on them. The $500 seems like a steal if you want Dolby Atmos without breaking the bank, not sure it does DTSX tho, maybe the $1K version does or a simulated version?

Why would you purposefully not want DTS:X? Not all discs have Atmos, some have the rival DTS: X format.

Cause I don't much have 4K UHD Movies (less then 10).

And all of them have only Dolby Atmos.
