Frustrating

Ryan L, Amazon
29 July 2014
  • Summary: I've owned this now for a little over a year and sure enough as soon as the warranty expires it starts to crap out on me. While movies are playing, both DVD and Blu-Ray, it will eject the disc and essentially start over. After going through all the previews and start-up menu and finding where it left off, it will play for 10 to 15 minutes and eject the disc again.

Disappointed

Lake Luver, Amazon

  • Summary: I was never crazy about this unit since I bought it a year ago. It always seemed a little complicated to just GET TO watching TV every time. It defaults up to the Home screen, and from there you have to choose input and scroll down to your source. It should just default to your main selection and not make you go through that every time. The sound was okay, I've had better and I've had worse. There's not a lot of "feel" to it... not a particularly strong subwoofer.

not even 6 months later, essentially worthless

  • Summary: I bought this product back in August 2012, after buying a 3d HDTV. Not my first rodeo with BRD players, and not my last, judging by my experience here. Up until January/February, this thing worked like a charm. No issues at all, no problems. DVD's, BRD's, even 3D discs played like magic. Just load disc in, and play. Sometime in January/February, this device stopped reading BRD's. Literally, just stopped.

Really really good & Really really bad...

  • Summary: I ordered this home theatre system just about 5 months ago. Since then I have been using it extensively, almost every day. In that time, I have loved and hated this system. I have thought about returning it several times, but in the end it's still playing my music and movies on a daily basis. *Pros* +Sound quality: Absolutely amazing. Goes VERY loud and still sounds VERY clear.

Feel like a Beta user

coxless, Amazon

  • Summary: Blu-ray works ok, Sounds ok, the hardware seems poorly designed - sounded awful at first - used an old stereo test CD to determine the center channel connection on the back of mine is actually the left front speaker! Swapped center and left front plugs and sound is much better. How can a circuit board get wired wrong!! No way to easily test things like proper phase. The Smart Apps are atrocious. About 40% of the 260M memory is used by apps you can't delete.

not user freindly

getting there "novice", Amazon
5 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this to work with a samsung 3d led tv . I am dissapointed with the sound qaulity as the levels for background sounds drown out voices and when you adjust for the voice level the base on everything else is far to loud.I feel the remote control is very poorly designed and not user friendly.

Gute Anlage, wenn Sie denn läuft!

Markus, Amazon

  • Summary: An und für sich war ich mit der anlage sehr zufrieden. Vernetzung mit dem Samsung Smartphone und Samsung Smart-TV waren relativ simpel und die Soundqualität besser als erwartet. Allerdings trat nach einigen Monaten immer wieder das Problem auf, dass sich das Laufwerk selbstständig öffnete (selbst wenn die anlage gar nicht im Betrieb war) und daurch das normale TV-Programm unterbrochen wurde. Dies passierte dann auch immer häufiger beim Ansehen von DVDs / BlueRays.

tote Hose beim Blu Ray Player

Sachse63, Amazon
7 June 2014
  • Summary: kann ich nach zwei Jahren Laufzeit sagen. Echt schwach, was da an "Sound" aus dem Ding kam. Das Gerät steht in der Ecke und tut nix mehr, weil ich mir ein Pioneer AV Receiver und Blu Ray Player gekauft habe. Daran habe ich die Boxen des Samsung Heimkinosystems angeschlossen und siehe da, es gibt ihn doch, den guten Klang. Allerdings nur bis zu den Mitteltönern, den Bass vermisse ich total. Echt schwach für ein solches System.

Langsames Gerät

fubak69, Amazon

  • Summary: Habe mir den HT-E5500 gekauft, weil ich auch einen Samsung Ferseher habe. Positiv das gute Bild und die Sound Anlage. Schlecht: Die Zeit bis eingelegte Medien abgespielt werden ist viel zu lang. Eine 3D BD dauert schon mal 40 - 50 Sekunden bis nach dem Einlegen das Disc-Menü anzeigt. Kauf DVDs die im billig DVD Spieler aus dem Baumarkt laufen, ruckeln in diesem Samsung Player.

Ausstattung Top, Klang Flop. Hab' die Anlage zurück geschickt.

Stefan, Amazon
17 December 2012
  • Summary: Von der Tatsache mal abgesehen, daß die Anlage einen Defekt hatte (kein Ton über opt. Eingang), war ich von der Klangqualität doch maßlos enttäuscht. Auf Grund der vielen positiven Rezensionen, worin auch der "gute Klang" gelobt wird, hätte ich das natürlich nicht erwartet. Kann ich nicht nachvollziehen; und ich stell' schon gar nicht sooo großen Ansprüche. Aus dem Subwoofer kam statt Bass nur ein laues Lüftchen (Bass Light?), und das sogar bei eingestelltem Powerbass.
