Summary: The reason I'm giving this a one star is within less than 6 months of use the front center speaker, the speaker that controls all the dialog went out at low volumes. I've readjusted the wires on different occasions, which temporarily fixes the problem. But ultimately it comes back.
Summary: After about 2 years very easy usage it has come up with the dreaded fault message and shuts down. I have only watched about 6 CD's. At first it seemed to be due to a DVD getting stuck but it still reoccurs after it was removed. I am fearful of getting anything more complex than a DVD player now.
Summary: I didn't have it long before it would shutdown with prot in the message window. Samsung advised that I send it to a repair facility in New Jersey. I figured with shipping and repair cost I would be just as we'll off to replace it. I found many examples of this same behavior on the net.
Summary: Price was right! Easy to do business Amazon! Samsung HT-C650W Home Theater System is a solid dependable system, however initial set-up was a little confusing. Samsung Tech-Support was an easy phone call away and was extremely helpful.
Summary: This system was a replacement for a 2.1 system in my living room. My TV like most HDTV's have a pathetic built in sound. Out of the box the system is pretty simple to set up, if you know what your looking at. The receiver has 1 HDMI port, and 1 Digital optical port.
Summary: For the price, this system does a great job. Was able to connect it to my basic cable, my xbox, and my ipod. Switching between the three just takes the press of a button. The best feature in my opinion is that it comes with the wireless rear speakers.
Summary: Okay so here it is. After tons of reviews and suggestions. I finally bought it. Just a heads up. You get exactly what you see in the picture. **NO upgraded front speakers.** System sounds good but still like some of the reviews have said. Don't compare a $200 to a $2000.
Summary: The surround sound is awesome and it sounds great. The only downfall that i could say is that i did not get the correct ipod dock with it so now i cant hook my ipo up to the system. Other then that everything is awesome with it!
Didn't work out of the box, lame proprietary speaker cables
16 September 2011
Summary: Believe it or not, the fact that it didn't work out of the box is the least of my complaints. * Speaker Wires For some reason more and more sound systems are using proprietary speaker connectors. I went to the trouble of downloading the manual from Samsung to check it out before I decided to buy.
