Summary: I have a Samsung 40" TV (non smart) and hooked this Samsung smart home cinema system to it and it has now turned my TV into a 'Smart TV' which I was very pleased with. I found it very easy to set up, and connected wirelessly to the router straight away! The sound is excellent too!
Summary: Called smart but I find it difficult piece of kit. When coupled to Samsung Smart TV & cable always going out of siync. Forever wrestling with it my old DVD Samsung was better. I would definatley consider another brand when replacing it sooner than later!
Summary: Bought this system and the wireless unit for the rear speakers in jan sales to replace old Sony 5.1. Prior to this I spent a lot if time on which, amazon.. Looking at mixed reviews. End of the day I have a Samsung tv and tablet so thought they must be ok so went for it. Comes in a huge box but could not be more straightforward to set up. Plugged in to my tv thought we better try a blue ray first and WOW.
Summary: I found a bitter deal, still with Amazon but bitter quality and cheaper.and this is the product am going to go for... Samsung HT-E5550 1000W Smart Home Cinema System with 4 5.1 Channel Tallboy Speakers and Built in Wi-Fi (New for 2012)
Summary: For anyone who has a normal HD-ready LCD TV, Plasma or first generation LED, this is an excellent buy to turn accompany your TV. Not only is the sound amazing but you get the additional bonus of turning your TV into a SMART TV with all the available apps and the ability to browse the internet with its wireless capability. Well worth the price.
Summary: The system in itself is fine, the sound is great and the install was fairly easy once I have got the additional cables. Once again the connectors that Samsung supply with their kit are rubbish. When an installation manual starts by saying'Option 1- Connect to TV with HDMI cable- Preferred Option'(cable not included) and Option 2 Connect using supplied rubbish cable you start to think well why didn't you include the preferred option to start with.
Only plays through two speakers when playing a Sky box or any other box.

Summary: I bought this to attach to my Sky box. It was only after setting it up that I discovered it only plays through two speakers when attached to an external device (....even though it was playing a 5.1 programme) It defeated the whole object of buying it.
