Summary: We've had this for about 2 years now and love it. Have it hooked up to our cable and xbox game system. Nothing like shooting zombies with surround sound! The wires for each speaker are long enough to really get the speakers around the whole room. Great deal and great sound.
Beware of 5.1CH on Samsung's Blu-ray Home Entertainment System

Summary: Here is an almost verbatim quote from a Samsung's representative on live-chat: "CDs, Videos, Netflix and any other program that does not use channel 5.1 will not work on your HT-F4500 Home Entertainment System.
Summary: UPDATE 10/22/2012: A recent update was applied about a week ago. Since then, I have experience no problems with this unit. No freezing at all with Netflix, Blu-Ray or video playback. ORIGINAL REVIEW --------------- At first, I thought I might have a lemon, but I later read other reviews that described the same problems that I experienced with this model. Essentially, the screen will freeze when playing a Blu-Ray disc or playing Netflix online.
Summary: Okay, so it's not a top-of-the-line system. But it's BluRay, FM tuner, subwoofer and 5 speakers for $150. It's great for what it is. That's the only reason for 4 stars. Sound is good enough for me - I only wanted something better than my TV's sound for watching movies, and listening to the radio and CDs so I don't need the TV on. Sound is 100x better than my TV, but nothing like a $1000 home stereo system, but why would I expect it to be?
Summary: I bougth this ITEM because i need it to enjoy a better sound in my DVD´s movies and concerts and because my LCD TV is in the same BRAND . I use to have this brand and it´s a great expirence.The only thing is it did´nt include the remote. Very good product !!
Summary: Bought this for my husband for Christmas. It worked great the first month and like a few others it started to freeze up. Its so frustrating because all u can do to fix it is turn it completely off and start all over again. It freezes a ton with YouTube & Netflix. I've called Samsung a few times and they make me reset it everytime! I finally told them that does not fix the problem so they want me to ship it out and I won't have it for 7-14 days!!! At the minimum!
