Summary: After getting used to the set up of the system and menu options, I would have to say that this system is freakin awesome. Although the system is quite basic in the fact that an equilizer is not built in and speakers have to be set manually, it is still a great system. At first I was kind of turned off because the quality of the sound was a bit off but after some experimenting I found that the system sounds best when the delay time for speakers is set to "0" as well as...
Summary: This is a great product. My husband and I absolutely love it and use it daily. We love the sound quality. My husband likes to listen to action packed movies that make the whole house rumble. This system sure does that in our little house. We have a Samsung TV too. We also bought the wireless speaker receiver. While it is not truly wireless it is better than having all four wires strung around the room.
Summary: I purchased this unit with my frequent flier miles, which were about to expire. The unit is great, don't listen to most of the other reviews as they are more of a review of firmware problems for the unit or customer service. I believe the firmware issue is all set since I have two Samsung blue ray units and updated both without issue.
Summary: I have been looking to purchase a home theater system for a few months now and finally decided this was the one to go with. I was looking at a Sony theater, thinking to replace the 5 CD/DVD player with a separate Blu-ray player and then thought, I might as well get a Samsung Blu-ray theater. With it's Anynet technology for Samsung components, just turning on the player will turn on the TV, and switch it's HDMI to whatever connection the Blu-ray is on.
Don't do the firmware update and you have a great unit!

Summary: I had to write this review since all the last reviews have totally trashed this unit based on a firmware update. I bought mine from QVC back in the summer and I've had absolutely no problems with it AT ALL. The sound is amazing! The blu-ray movies are crystal clear. It functions with the anynet mode on my Samsung 50 inch plasma TV and my PS3 flawlessly. I use one remote to turn everything on and off.
