Summary: I'm sure this sound system is great, but I had to return it. The house we bought has the living room prewired for surround sound, so in the 5 spots around the room there are just little speaker wires sticking out. After unpacking this, we discovered that the speakers have ends on them that will only plug into the Samsung unit. So, we could take the risk in splicing the wires to see if we could make it work or send it back and get something else. We sent it back.
Summary: This is a great system for the price. It does have too many wires attached to the speaker -- but we all know that anyway. I suggest that you get the HDMI cable that does not come with the set-- then you will have no problems. It also does come with the ferrite core for the cord if there are any interference issues - but I had none. This is a great complement to my TV and the sound is much better and even more than I need.
Summary: I was very disappointed in this product.I thought since it matched my TV it would be great.I had to run the volume near max all the time and the connections had to be jiggled to get a good connection
Summary: Maybe this is just a coincidence, but any time we try to play movies from Universal, they skip and freeze up. Since this does not have WiFi, the update process is a pain unless the player is right next to your internet source where you can manually connect it. The USB method of updating is a pain. Anyway, even after updating the firmware, a decent number of movies still won't play and they're all Universal movies.
Summary: I read the majority of reviews including the ones that were talking about the hissing noise coming from the speakers. While I did hear some it cleared up once I put the speakers at the appropriate level in the room and only heard it once up close when there was no sound coming from what ever it was I was watching. So why did I give it only 4 stars?
Summary: This was a Christmas gift for my daughter and her family. This is their first blu-ray home theater system, and they LOVE the sound and picture quality. Thanks, will definitely do business with this company.
Summary: Got this as a present for my dad. He's really happy with it. It's like a Goldilocks home theater system; "Just right". I got this manufacture refurbished and to me it doesn't look like it was refurbished; it looked like it was brand new. Sound is just right. I love the 5.1. Software wise it's not the fastest(Browsing youtube) but we only use netflix and blueray so it's fine. Overall we're very happy with it.
