Summary: Generally like the unit. Looks good and sound is okay. Good value. I use this unit with a Samsung LED TV and the optical cable interface. It would be nice if the TV remote could control the volume of both the TV and the Sound Bar simultaneously, or if the Sound Bar remote could do the same. Sound Bar remote functions are rather limited for controlling the TV.
Summary: I bought this so I could hear my sound better since I just bought a brand new Samsung hidef flat led panel. so when I installed it works but my tv speakers are louder then the sound bar, at the wattage output it says it has I would have assumed it would have been louder..
Summary: Fantastic product for this low price. Easy to set up and use. Settings for sports/cinema/etc. seem mis-assigned but just keep hunting until you find the one that provides best sound for the show. Does not come with a digital optical cable. You will want to buy one for best sound and sound synchronization possible. Also, the sound comes on with the TV. Remember to remove small protectors from cable ends before attempting to jam into outlets.
Summary: I think that it is cheaper buying this on Samsung.com than Best Buy by about $100 after taxes. I bought a Digital Optical cord to enhance the performance....I am very impressed with this product. I love playing my music from my phone (Pandora, Google Play) to the Sound Bar through Blu-tooth. Excellent buy for me!
Pros: I bought this one sale, so I have to say the price is the biggest Pro, here. It's super simple to set up, it connected to my phone without a hitch (note that it is a Samsung phone, so it probably won't be as easy to connect to your Brand X, because apparently Samsung is moving towards the whole Apple Style closed ecosystem). It's currently connected directly to my TV (as Audio Source), and it works fine watching Streamed Movies through my PS3.
Cons: My biggest complaint is that the remote's TV Control Feature only works with other Samsung TVs, it won't work with other brands (Both of my TVs are LG), and this makes me angry (I know it is my fault, I know), if I would have known I would have likely not purchased this unit. I did not know because some how I overlooked the SmartOn Feature definition, I don't know if it was because I was browsing on my Mobile, or because I only read the Reviews or if I was just excite...
Summary: Excellent sound bar. Very nice. Easy to setup and use. Does not gave an HDMI port, but I wasnt looking for that. Use an optical cable for premium sound. Subwoofer could be louder, but it's nice for the size. Samsung produces quality electronics.
Pros: good price, easy set up, looks nice, different 3D settings
