Summary: This is a good simple all-in-one stereo system, as mentioned by others. The sound is fine and I think the nontraditional look is cool. The unit does not switch from one input mode to the next very quickly, but that is a minor issue to me. The main problem I have is that the box and advertising would seem to indicate that the central unit can be placed 'upright', as shown in this image, or laying flat like a more normal system. Lies!
Summary: I've had my share of home theater systems from large scale to small. This "mid size" model is not only modernly attractive, but has very respectable sound and function. Hook-up is easy, function is easy, and it is very compatible with the new Samsung HD TV I purchased making it a talked about item when company is over. Happy that I made the buy, and would tell you it is worth the look if you are in the market.
Great value: good sound and a modern look at a decent price

Summary: Others have reviewed the technical specs well so I will focus on the things they did not spend much time on. The unit is in my living room. I needed something that would be part of the furniture and not look like an obvious audio system. I needed it to sound good, but not be very loud. I also wanted very few wires and a small footprint unit that I could hide away. The Samsung meets all of these objectives.
Summary: Received this Cinema system as a bonus with a television purchase. It arrived ahead of schedule and in good order. Opening the package revealed the main control/player console, a subwoofer and two speaker towers. These units are in Samsung's gloss piano-black finish with A Touch of Color (red) accents. Everything was packaged very securely in the box, and wrapped to prevent scuffing.
Excerpt: "Thats what Samsung claim, the effect of surround sound from a 2.1 setup. I'm not sure i'd agree, for me it just seems a bit echo-y! However this system still has a lot going for it as you can turn off the "virtual surround" option and just have fantastic sound which fills the room, but maybe doesn't give you complete surround sound (it also doesn't have your house trailing with cables everywhere). I got this system to compliment my Series 5 40" ...
Pros: Looks sexy, price, sound quality, features
Cons: Not quite as good as proper surround sound .
Summary: Elégant, cet home cinéma s'intègrera trés bien dans votre salon. Le son est bien réparti (bien que le 5.1 virtuel n'apporte que peu de choses finalement) et le rendu image est bien souvent excellent. La connectique est elle aussi bien pensée et peu compliquée. Un premier bémol cependant concernant la longueur des fils des 2 enceintes : elle ne permet pas de trop éloigner les 2 enceintes du lecteur. Dommage pour les grands espaces !
Summary: Dopo aver acquistato un TV LCD Samsung 40" A656 e un lettore Blu Ray Samsung P1500 mi sono deciso a completare l'opera con questo sistema Home Cinema. Dopo una lunga ricerca on line mi è sembrato il migliore Home 2.1 nel rapporto qualità prezzo (312euro). Infatti ha ben 400 Watt ed è pieno di optional.
Pros: Design + facile installazione + Ottimo associato ad un TV Samsung con Anynet
Cons: Sono un pò deluso dal sistema Virtual Sound .
Summary: Die Anlage überzeugt im Design und Stereo Klang, leider gibt es ein paar Abstriche bei der Funktionalität. Der Stereo-Klang ist super und auch die Simulation einer Center-Box wirkt gut, nur die hinteren Boxen kann das System nicht simulieren/darstellen. Die Bassbox kann man separat einstellen und der Bassklang ist sehr ordentlich(scheppert nicht). In einer Mietwohnung sollte man den Bass auf die geringste Stufe einstellen.
Pros: Top Design, Bluetooth ! ! ! , flach oder senkrecht stellbar
Cons: kein RDS, kaum feststellbarer virtueller Raumklang
