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. Cutting in and out has been a problem from time to time, but the killer event occurred this weekend when the system went berserk and maxed out on the volume all by itself. All volume and on/off controls failed, and now the system won't even go on from a cold start.

Aldous L. Sanchez "SZS", Amazon

  • 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. They don't cover the service after the warranty ofcourse its a year warranty but a lot of electronics last longer than a year.

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. But there is actually no sound produced above a low buzz, even with volume maxxed on the soundbar. Other: Overstock RMA was fast and easy. Handled it very well.

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. Now it has started the revving noise everytime I turn the channel. I hate it so much, but I bought it from Sears and they won't take it back.

Disappointed with this product

RW3100, Amazon
17 October 2009
  • Summary: This is truely one of the fist Samsung products that I purchased and was very disappointed with. This product was purchased to increase the sound quality on my new Samsung LCD that I purchased. The sound on this product is flat and there are no controls to customize it to your liking. You cant raise or lower the treble or bass so you are stuck with the basic settings.

Very disappointing

J. Scaife, Amazon
9 May 2009
  • Summary: I returned this unit after trying it out for one week. The problems: - wireless subwoofer was only about 6 feet away but cut in and out constantly and never kicked in at all at anything but the highest volume setting. - Output of the main bar was much lower than I expected - hardly louder than the built in speakers on the TV - Unit has to be turned on independently of the Samsung television -- another remote to keep track of - The price - for $350 I expected better All...

Smoke poured out...

CS, Amazon
29 April 2009
  • Summary: I heard one of these at Best Buy and was satisfied with the sound quality for the price. All retail stores were out of stock in my area, so I ordered through Amazon. I attached the audio source via optical audio & configured the wireless subwoofer. Audio played for about 10 seconds before the speaker fizzled and smoke came out of the bottom. Samsung is exchanging the unit. Let's hope this was just a fluke and not widespread...
