Samsung HTX40 Bad Deal

Duke Stryker, Amazon
28 March 2014
  • Summary: The Samsung HT-X40 home theater I purchased did not work. I took it to a electronic repair shop in town and after paying $29.00 I learned the power board was out and it would cost $180.00 to fix. The seller said it was in excellent shape and for $75.00 seemed like a good deal. My bad for trusting the sellers advertisement.

Almost 7 years and still running strong!

Tal Rubin, Amazon
7 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this in the Summer of 2007 and its been running strong (minus 1 issue - see below) ever since. The DVD player stopped working years ago however I strictly used the HT-X40 for TV/Music surround sound. I have a bluetooth receiver hooked up to it and it makes everything great. The ONLY issue i have had with this system is that the fan conked out about 6 months ago. I just got around to getting a new one ($15 on Amazon) and just installed it and BAM!

Waste of Money

R. Cates "bargain betty", Amazon
27 October 2012
  • Summary: This system seemed like a bargain and worked just fine for about 6 months but then the player had trouble syncing audio with video, would get stuck loading discs and have to be reset and now, after only about 18 months of occasional use, the front display (the little LCD screen) has gone out. Everything seems to work well enough but it's anyone's guess what function you're on since the screen doesn't display anymore.

Samsung HT-X40 Short Life

Hermitld "Hermie", Amazon
21 August 2011
  • Summary: I bought this unit about 18 months ago, the set up was easy, the sound quality was ok, the dvd player controls were sometimes confusing, the unit is out of warranty and died. I wouldn't recommend this unit. For $200 it should have lasted longer than 18 months.

Cheap and short-lived

G. Gupta "TecknoGeek", Amazon
3 June 2010
  • Summary: I bought this at Fry's for $99 on Black Friday sale. It comes with 1 year manufacturer warranty and during the first year it died 3 times with "protection" error and had to send to their repair center. Samsung paid for the shipping, thats not a problem but after it broke for the forth time Samsung refused repairing it. I am giving it 2-star because it never worked consistently for even 3 months but since I got it for $99 I will give it more than 1-star.

HT X50 Okay for price and features

Samuel Guinto "sxg-macweenie", Amazon
8 November 2009
  • Summary: I purchased my system in Jan 2008. The system is nice but had certain limitations that many of the other reviewers cited. Pros: Good sound quality, soft or loud and great dynamic range, feature rich, relatively easy to connect (if you don't have too many other components to deal with). Cons: Limited input source support as others noted.

Great curb appeal, poor performance!

A. Gould "Coolweatheredrose", Amazon
12 September 2009
  • Summary: Hi there, I have had this system since fall 2007 and though it may work okay if you just want to watch TV it performs poorly for movies. I bought a SWA-3000 Wireless Receiver Module so that I wouldn't need cords to wrap my living room for the rear speakers. Though this sound system is wireless ready, it has a hard time maintaining the receiver's speakers! So when we would watch a movie the rear speakers wouldn't work half the time!

Good deal for the price, but a a few issues...

aim, Amazon
1 June 2009
  • Summary: I bought this system at Circuit City back on Black Friday 2007. It was a major upgrade from the 75 watt system I was using previously. The bass is very loud... so loud that my upstairs neighbor had to ask me to turn it down once while I was watching a movie because their walls were vibrating. I do have a couple issues with this system though. One, sometimes the screen goes black while watching a DVD.

Ronald Jordan, Amazon

  • Summary: I had the Bose 3-2-1 system and was very unhappy with the sound and always not able to read disc. So I got this samsung system and love the way the sound fills the room with movies and cd's
