Won't Play latest Disks or Lovefilm - no firmware updates
11 May 2013
Summary: The sound on my Samsung Home Cinema is great but the menus are clunky and it won't play the latest Bluray Disks like Spiderman and Hunger Games. Samsung haven't delivered a firmware upgrade since March 2012. Also Lovefilm streaming does not work. Search the internet for stories of other unhappy customers before you consider purchasing - you may regret it when your left with a brick!
Summary: Have sent 3 units back now as the first secound and third had bad smell, when on for only half hour. I am hoping it is just the newness and that it will go eventually. All that said the sound is great and it look good.
Summary: Received next day, great product, sound is crystal clear and has good bass, works great with Samsung 3d tv,took about half an hour to set up, 1 little bad point, can't connect iPhone 5 so have to buy the adaptor but overall great product.
Summary: I used to have a LG home-cinema. It was really great until it got broken during a removal. The sound was just fantastic. This Samsung device is fine, it odes the job, but the sound is not comparable to the previous sound system. LG was much better, albeit with some other minor defects in relation to remote control use etc. I'd say that Samsung is very good as a home-cinema to watch movies but absolutely mediocre as a sound system.
Summary: My wife hated all the shiny black plastic towers so we dismantled the tall bits and laid the speaker bits flat behind the 55" LED TV. The rear ones are just behind us in the corners and we pretend they're not there. I only use them for watching TV and the sound in our 14(2)m TV room is perfectly acceptable, though it would be nice to be able to tweak it. There is no EQ, tone controls or any type of 'sound' manipulation, something that may be missed by Hi-Fi buffs.
Summary: This surround sound system is fantastic. Not only is it a multi use system it's great value for money. Excellent sound for music/movies/games. If it pisses neighbours off its doing its job. And mine hate me right now because this sound system pumps out a fantastic surround sound experience. Took me a while to research sound settings and different functions for sound , but wen I did it really paid off. I would recommend this system to anyone.
Summary: Overall I like the system, however does take some trial & error for sytem to work. Instruction manual - while not quite poor, isn't very good, being non technical when it comes to TV/Hifi etc it took some time to get things working. The Bluray/DVD worked pretty quick but TV was another thing and to be honest after several hours over days, the TV still does not operate through the system, eventually found out that as we haveSky without HD, it dosesn't work - not even sure...
Summary: Afther purchasing the home cinema system a couple of months ago I have found it to be well worth the money. The product has a modern feel and looks well in any large room. The sound quality is excellent, after some tweaking on the menu, and is also of a high quality while streaming music videos or playing music from the iPod dock. However, one negative is that the system cannot play all videos from youtube. An annoying factor at house parties.
