  • Summary: I honestly don't know what people expect out of a $250 HTIB??? Got one guy complaining that is barely louder than the TV? Are you sh*****g me?If that's the case then YOU hooked it up wrong. I give it 4 stars strictly based on cost to performance ratio, which is great.

Terrible System

harley6toes, Ebay
9 October 2014
  • Summary: I don't like this system at all. 99% of the time the DVD player won't work, the sound is muffled even though it's suppose to be 1000 watts. I will never buy a Samsung home theater system again. It might look good or the item descriptions sounds great it is not what I would recommend to anyone

Worked well for almost 2 years

MartyB, Amazon
1 October 2013
  • Summary: We use mostly to provide better sound for watching mostly cable/dvr with an occasional dvd/blu-ray and have been happy. The unit just died this week (crackled and then lights out) so I called Samsung and they offered to fix it for $80.

Samsung Customer Service is the WORST

Charles Bohs, Amazon
1 August 2013
  • Summary: First off, I love the home theater system... but only when it works. It needs to function properly for me to be able to enjoy it. Be careful. The rear speakers tend to crackle and don't always pair up to the main unit. My center channel is now acting up after a firmware update.

Not very loud, bass is lacking badly!

matrix, Amazon
19 July 2013
  • Summary: Not very loud, bass is lacking badly! I ended up buying a powered sub and hooked it up and now the bass is perfect. I was a little shocked that a 1000w system had such limited volume. But on the other hand the smaller speakers are great and the sound is very precise and crisp.

I loved it then one year later it doesn't work

Miranda Smith, Amazon
23 April 2013
  • Summary: I bought this from Amazon last February. Very easy to assemble and use! It has great sound and looks great! We rarely watch dvds so we haven't used it to much. I went to start a movie for the kids this weekend and it kept spitting out the dvds. I tried both regular and blu ray.

Plagued with issues from the start.

Jordan A. Bourne "J.Bourne", Amazon
9 April 2013
  • Summary: After initial setup this worked perfectly for about a month. At first, I started having issues when I went from standard channels to HD channels, the picture would flicker static only for about 10-20 seconds before the HD channels would load. After checking the setup, changing all the cables, etc.

Not Good

Ken, Amazon
9 December 2012
  • Summary: The woofer and front speakers work great. The problem is getting the surround sound and the center speakers to work. Good Luck! This thing is absurdly complicated to get set up. I have a Panasonic Plasma tv and it was a huge pain to get them synced. The manual and website are of no use at all.

Great Home Theater System

Amanda S, Amazon
18 September 2012
  • Summary: I'm not very tech savvey so this is a pretty simple review. I have never had a home theater system before and I'm not that great when it comes to technology, wires, and cable setup! After researching and reading several reviews I choose this system and I'm glad I did!
