Summary: Bought this one two weeks ago. Was an easy install for this 67 yr old. Works as well as expected. Only a 2.1 and not a 5.1 but still gives good sound effect in a moderately sized room. Sub-woofer more noticeable during gaming and action movies but also effective with music and regular tv.
Summary: I've had our HT-WS1 since Xmas 2009, and it has been a frustrating product. When working well, the sound was superior to the Sony flatscreen TV, but not by much. I didn't expect much given the price.
Summary: I have a lot of experience with samsung are 90 percent defective after its one year warranty. My LED tv has a horizontal line accross the screen after a year of using it. my speakers are frozen after a year as well.
Summary: I boought mine at Walmart yesterday at Walmart ($278 + tax). I bought it becasue of the comments of how easy it was to connect. "Easy" being a relative term. Any way I removed the 5 wired speakers which came with my Samsung DVD player.
Not bad but perhaps there's something better out there

Summary: I purchased a new Samsung LED TV recently and figured this was the obvious choice for speakers - same (sleek) design from the same manufacturer. Also, I don't require a 5.1 stereo surround sound set-up like some of you home theater and gaming whackos out there.
Summary: It looks fantasic and matches my 46" Samsung LCD's sleak look. However, the sound bar is not powerful enough to fill a decent size room. I tried configuring it many different ways as suggested by others, but nothing would fix the issues with the subwoofer cutting in and out, especially when watching...
Summary: Below is a review from someone else, but is sums up what is going on with ours too. The subwoofer only works when sitting right next to the tv, so it defeats the purpose of having a wireless subwoofer for us. If it is moved only a foot away it starts cutting out all the time.
Summary: I bought this as a potential remedy for the awful sound from the speakers on the 46" Samsung LED TV -- you really can't make out what people are saying no matter the setting or volume. The sound bar is pretty much the same. Audiophiles will be extremely disappointed by the sound quality and volume.
Summary: I got this because I ordered the Samsung UN46B7000LED TV and the BD1600 Blue Ray Player and I wanted everything Samsung. I also have kids so I didn't want a loud or expensive system. I waited until the price was <$200, this is a fair price when comparing it to other systems.
