Summary: Actually loved this player and system. Was VERY proud of it, however, the blu-ray lens/player went out and I have been unable to get anyone to repair it. I paid over $800 for this system barely 2 years ago. VERY disappointed in samsung at this point.
Summary: This system has fantastic sound, plenty of power & bass, and a crisp picture - when it works. We bought it in July 2013 and it stopped loading disks (music, DVD, Blu-Ray) in October. Had to send it to California for repair & was gone for six weeks.
Summary: I bought this system to match my Samsung 50 inch LED Smart TV. The wireless connection for the system failed almost immediately and was unfixable. After less than 1.5 years of very light use the video function for the Blu-Ray stopped working.
Summary: Player had trouble playing DVD within 4 months, by the time a year came around it would not play any disc. After spending 3 hours on two separate calls(mostly on hold) Samsung offered to repair. For $110 plus shipping each way. thatswhat I want to do.
Summary: Jan 2014 Update: For a period of time the video drop outs seemed to have been less frequent, but with the most recent patch (1019.3) they are back with a vengeance. I have never been able to play DVDs reliably, and now even Blu-Ray discs are having issues.
Summary: My Samsung home theater system, HT-E6730W functioned as advertised for about 14 months. Now when turned on, it replys with an error message "Protect" and then shuts down. I do not recommend this model. At this price, I expected a better quality, more reliable home theater system.
Summary: For a long time, I couldn't figure out why the screen kept going blank for a few seconds intermittently when watching TV/DVD/apps. I thought it was the cable box, and worked with the cable co for a long time. Process of elimination points right to this receiver.
Summary: Ordered the product based on reviews and Consumer Reports rating. Hooked it up and it sounded great for the several movies. Started hearing some static from top right front speaker. Had registered the product with Samsung. Started to submit a service request to see if they could diagnose/fix.
Summary: I didn't unpack this until recently. I set it up to try out the sound, played portions of a Harry Potter Blu-Ray disc, was amazed briefly at the great sound. When I ejected the disc, I could no longer use the contraption. Regardless of what I do, I get a "Please close the tray." message.
