Was an easy install for this 67 yr old

writingman, Amazon
15 December 2014
  • 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.

Short-lived system not worth it at any price.

Gregorio Wheeler de Vazquez, Amazon
21 October 2012
  • 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.

Nickie in Oklahoma "Nickie", Amazon
9 October 2010
  • 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.

No subwoofer

Overstock
20 March 2010
  • Summary: Pros: It looks nice. It integrates pretty well with your Samsung TV. Speaker bar alone *is* an improvement over TV speakers. Cons: Subwoofer simply does not work. It does link up okay (following the procedure in the manual), and turns on from standby with the TV power sync feature.

OK Soundbar

J. Larson, Amazon
11 March 2010
  • Summary: I received this soundbar FREE from Amazon.com when purchasing the Samsung LED TV. Despite other reviews I had no problem with the wireless subwoofer which adds the bass to the sound.

Not bad but perhaps there's something better out there

Jacque Strapp, Amazon
22 January 2010
  • 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.

Brewin, Amazon
17 January 2010
  • 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...

waste of money

customer, Amazon
8 January 2010
  • 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.

Most negatives in these reviews are accurate

J. Roemer, Amazon
5 January 2010
  • 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.
