Summary: Works perfectly, I had a four disk blu-ray set, disk four stopped playing in both of my pc blu-ray drives and would no longer play on my PS3. I don't know why but, it plays just fine on my Samsung HT-E6500. Picture and movie quality is above what I am use too. I can't think of a single thing I don't like about it, cept for maybe one thing... It's a minor tick but annoying as hell. I read about this in another review and thought it was odd but not a deal breaker.
Summary: This system is ok, but it's not really great in the sound department! It's connected to a Samsung 55 UNES8000 by the way! I have other systems that would put this one to shame in the sub-woofer, and surround areas. No surround other than Blu-ray disc? My other systems do surround from TV, Radio, whatever!!! I expected more for the money I paid for this system, but all in all, it's a decent outfit for what it is.
Summary: Bass is a little on the weak side. could use longer speaker wires, haven't really played with all the functions yet, the web browser function is a joke using the flipper provided with the unit, takes forever to navigate. But I bought it for watching movies with surround sound not surfing the web.
Sound, excellent. Video, excellent. Lack of Amazon Prime Videos on Demand... disappointing

Summary: We received this as a gift and for the most part, we have been thrilled with our Samsung home theater system. We have an Amazon Prime account, so the major disappointment was that Amazon's VOD is not available. The sound is amazing - we enjoy movies at home so much more! My father has some hearing loss and can hear his TV programs much better now.
Summary: Overall we are very happy with this system. A few things that are minor irritants: When turning on the system it doesn't go back to what function it was on when turning off. It is not so easy to get back to cable. Commercials utilize surround sound better then most TV shows and older movies. I find myself turning the volume down for commercials they also seem to be at a much higher volume then TV, even with smart sound turned on.
Summary: Initial sound quality is great, and boy does this thing thump! The depth of sound is great, don't use the 3D sound mode since it drowns out most of the actors speech. I like that it's hooked up with other Smart Hub products where you can easily jump from TV to Theater sound. It comes with a microphone that maximizes sound quality between the 5.1 speakers, but it would be nice if you could put more power on the center channel and maybe more on the back speakers.
An excellent all-around HTIB, but Samsung could have made it better

Summary: The home theater I had originally was a $150 Philips HTS3544 "Home Theater In a Box" System. The Philips at the time was what I needed: it had good sound quality, it produced strong bass that shook the house at mid-volume, and was an inexpensive system to complement my TV set. Recently, I picked up a new 55" Panasonic 3D HDTV and so I needed a replacement home theater that has 3D play-back and additional HDMI connections for my other electronics.
Summary: Overall the system works great! The sound is great and the picture quality is great. I really like the almost wireless rear speakers. They are not directly connected to the main unit but are connected to a wireless receiver/amp that plugs into an outlet at the back of the room. I have no way to run wires across my living room so this setup works great for me. For the small size of the speakers they do put plenty of volume and good sound.
Summary: Had this HT for around 4 months (bought from BestBuy along with a Panasonic 55" ST50 plasma). Sound is excellent, initial calibration was as easy as advertised. Packaging was extremely protective and not a giant hassle to unpack. Absolutely no issues with the wireless rear speakers - I expected some connectivity issues or bad sound, but they're excellent. Subwoofer, despite being passive, is more than adequate for my living room even with the 20" lofted ceilings.
Summary: I had not really intended to buy a surround sound system but due to some of my electronics failing, I thought this would be a great product. I was not quite ready to put up $500 for a receiver and then $500 for speakers so this worked out great. The sound is very good. It is very crisp and clear. The internet options on it are very slow and I have fairly decent internet connection. Also, DO NOT order this product from Amazon.
