Summary: I DID NOT BUY this product from Amazon, but after only two years, I am looking for it's replacement on Amazon. The part of the DVD player that loads and ejects DVDs has bee problematic for a few months and has finally quit working. Got a DVD stuck in it right now.
Summary: The optical cable is not the best technology. Every time a scene changes or a commercial ends or begins, the sound temporarily cuts out. After just six months of use, the door on the dvd/cd player does not close. The sub woofer is unreliable. Sometimes it doesn't pick up a signal.
Summary: Purchased Samsung HT-X810 little over a year ago. We primarily used the unit for the surround sound and never watched any DVD's. When we tried to watch a DVD, the DVD picture would just freeze and when it resumed it would have skipped forward.
Summary: I have owned this unit for just about a month now and like everything in electronics it has some good features and some bad. I have this connected to a Sony LCD KDL-52W5150 via HDMI with a digital output cable routing the TV sound back to the unit.
Summary: We bought this system in Dec 2008 and already the problems are evident in less than a year of limited use. most of the problems are with the DVD player , most of the disc just dont work but when we install them in an old player that we have it works fine.
Summary: I've had this product for a little less than a year. When it's working, it's fantastic. It pairs well with my 46" Samsung TV, the sound quality is clear, controls are intuitive, and the subwoofer is really impressive. I bought it for its small footprint.
