Summary: Overall a very good product. I'm no audiophile, but to my ears it sounds great. I will say the built in Netflix player seems finicky. We finally gave up and just hooked a Roku up to it, which worked better (though Netflix wouldn't work with surround sound). Also when we connect a phone to the unit via Bluetooth, the audio and the video playback do not sync up.
Great performance and sound... a little slow on starting up apps

Summary: Great performance and sound... a little slow on starting up apps I am having a little issue with getting a couple of the apps over to the "My Apps", but they appear on my most recent/recommended area at the top and I can access them there. I like the sound, and the surround sound still fools me as I'm watching a show and turn around to see what the noise behind was... background noise in the movie stupid!
Excerpt: Very pleased with overall system. Gave it only 4 stars instead of 5 because as usual when you get new features they take away a needed basic feature. There is no headphone jack on this system. My teens have late viewing hours that require the use of headphones to watch their movies without disturbing sleeping parents. We can no longer use the system for this purpose and have to switch over to the TV jack for this purpose with less sound quality.
Excerpt: Just got this HT-F6500 Home Theater a couple of days ago and we love it. The sound is nice and crisp with many options to change the sound effects. The initial set up was quick and easy. The only problem I have with the product is the mounting hole, the plastic is soft for using wall mount brackets and you have to hang them straight or they will pop off the bracket. Would be nice if there was a bolt hole to help secure the speaker to the bracket.
Excerpt: Years ago when I purchased my last Samsung home theater (model # escapes me), I swore I'd never buy another Samsung product again. The BluRay crashed constantly and was horribly slow to load, the DVD side was very picky about DVDs being pristine/clean with little effective error handling, the 5.1 processor dropped channels or became muted/fuzzy on occasions, etc.
