slow to load

  • Summary: For the price this is a good system the sound is great but it can take forever to load a blu-ray, and like every1 else says the wires are to short.

We love it!

Theodor E. Winkel, Amazon
12 April 2009
  • Summary: Having studied several home theater systems "in a box", we settled on this one to join our Samsung 50" plasma. It's lived up to its positive reviews, creates an awesome theater experience and is an excellent value. A couple caveats. Set up as suggested--especially keeping the front right and left speakers in line with the center channel. We initially didn't, and the slight delay between the fronts and center yielded an easily discernible out-of-synch sound effect.

Won't play Blue Rays

James P. Bean "Jim in WA", Amazon
5 April 2009
  • Summary: Great price and very impressed with the appearance and ease of set up. Problem is the system I received won't play blue rays. I contacted Samsung's support unit and after having me run several tests including resetting the system several times and trying different blue ray disks the tech provided me a ticket number and advised that I needed to ship it to an address in NJ "at my own expense" for warranty repairs.

Top notch home theater

John Paull "John Paull", Amazon
19 March 2009
  • Summary: This is the best blu-ray/home sound system on the market for the price. It combines the bd player and the 7.1 speaker sound system. This combination is difficult and costly to find. I had some problems getting it set up but once up and running it is very impressive. The problems I encountered were: 1) I needed to add longer speaker wires for the rear speakers.

Excellent home theater at a good price.

Neil Battelle, Amazon
11 March 2009
  • Summary: This home theater system is what convinced me to finally make the jump to Blu-ray. I bought it from Amazon at 51% off its $1000 MSRP. I added Amazon Prime and had it in my home in two days. Set up was simple, but with seven speakers plus a subwoofer, there's a lot of wire running around my family room. The picture quality of the Blu-ray discs is stunning, and a regular DVD gets upconverted to 1080p, so all my old stuff looks much better than ever, too.

Junk

CWB, Amazon
13 February 2009
  • Summary: System messed up after a few months. Stoped reading DVD's. Had to send the unit back to Samsung. They sent it back said it was fixed. Played one day. Stoped playing DVD's. Called Samsung back and sent it back. They fixed it again. They said it would not hold it's programing and fixed it and sent it back again. Well that lasted a week. This time Samsung wanted the whole system back with speakers. They refunded the amount I payed for it.

Piece of work

John Reublin, Amazon
13 February 2009
  • Summary: 1) Front speaker wires too short. 2) No equalizer function (Not good if you have certain hearing losses). 3) No on-screen setup menus for "SFE", "NEO:6", or "Dolby Pro Logic". 4) Noisy cooling fan (sounds like a hair dryer). 5) Sub woofer does not power off with system (energy thief). 6) Balance & distance setup do not work with music playing. 7) Very sluggish to commands (makes you think it is broken).

poor performance

Yogini Benegalrao "Hillibilli", Amazon
25 December 2008
  • Summary: I bought two TVs 52" & 46" one series 7 and serires 6 repectively and a blue ray player all Samsung brand I thought I will not make a mistake buying the Home Theater System from Samsung boy! I was WRONG it is a disaster to my fine tuned ears my TV speakers perform better than the system. I am requesting to return it. I gave one star because of its ease to setup. They are cosmetically nice looking speakers but poor performing.
