Summary: The hookup is smooth, sounds pretty good. Switching to 3D sound setting is awesome. But some problems: the remote can only be set for 5 different brands, Panasonic isn't one of them. My Panasonic Viera Plasma is too good not to have this be part of the list. LG having problems with Panasonic maybe?? Little feud among these two?? Also, no app to connect with Amazon Prime Video - not gonna happen.
Summary: I am overall disappointed with this purchase apps are not so great they freeze.When you turn the power off by default you have to put it back on hdmi to watch tv.I should of went with a yamaha sytem purchased it at Best Buy on sale but not worth the money No I would not recomend this product.
Summary: I love almost everything about this system! Except 1 thing that drives me crazy and will keep me from purchasing a Samsung TV! My next system like this or TV will be capable of playing movies purchased from Google Play! That right! This can not play back your movies purchased from the play store! It can do Netflix, and of course Samsung Media Hub. All they need to do is allow it within the Youtube app and they will win me back!
Pros: hd sound, easy setup
Cons: Did not meet expectations, not compatible with google play movies
Summary: The only downside I have found with this system so far is the inability to pair a wireless keyboard to it. Using the on-screen keyboard with the remote is frustrating and time consuming. I purchased the Samsung VG-KBD1500 wireless keyboard only to find this system does not support it with no way to upgrade the firmware and no other keyboard options. REALLY? Disappointing.
Summary: had several samsung home theater systems. Sound quality wise this one is the best but has a very poor bass (even compared to my samsung sound bar) and speakers would rattle. The functionality is quite fast compared to some of the earlier samsung internet devices.
Summary: I had the top 2011 model of this HTIB and in loved it. Sadly it died and they offered this one as a replacement. I figured being a 2012 model would be better and it is in some ways mostly in sound. For one the 2011 model had 2.4 and 5ghz WiFi the 2012 only has 2.4ghz which makes it useless streaming BD files to it thru my network. Two, this thing just seems so much slower and sluggish than its 2011 model.
