Summary: Ah, but anyone with a techie bent needs to have something that will read mkv, avi files. This works beautifully. You can always port directly from your PC of course, but if you have a lot of stuff on disk this works great, and it easy to set up in 30 minutes, no software or networking hassles. And the bass goes boom.

Summary: garbage. hate it. worst ive ever gotten before, and it makes me sad considering i love samsung. this model, the speakers are garbage, shitty quality if you know what real quality is. doesnt play dvd's only cds. but apparently its a real common thing on this model for it to happen, and from other reviews ive read, samsung doesnt do anything about it to fix the problem.
Summary: I have had this home theater system for over 3 years. The DVD player never really worked well from the beginning and after a year or so it got to the point where it didn't play any DVDs. I took the dvd/receiver apart and looked for a part number on the dvd portion of the receiver - went to the Parts Store on bestbuy.com - searched the part number and ordered the part to replace the dvd unit.
Summary: i bought this unit as a replacement for my bose and i honestly believe this unit works and plays almost as great as my Bose..I know it sounds crazy but this thing is great and worth the small price i paid.
Summary: This surround sound system was pretty awesome at first, but now I want to throw it out the window. I've had it for about a year and it has just gotten more annoying as time goes on. It is very easy to set up, but I can't believe the quality of it for the price. Actually, I can, because it's Samsung and that's what all their products are; overpriced and horribly made.
Summary: Purchased this Surround Sound system about one year ago...okay for about 6 months then nothing but trouble. Sound is average at best. But the DVD player is awful! Can take a brand new disc out of the case and it skips, freezes, gives pixel-ated images. Very picky and unpredictable. Occasionally it will go through an entire movie and be okay, but not often. More trouble that it's worth.
Summary: As pretty much everyone else has said, this home theater system is not worth the price. The rear back (surround) speaker blew after a few months of usage. I used it to play Call of Duty on the PS3 and it did, indeed, sound pretty good for a bit. But only after 4 months the speaker blew out. The annoying "blown out" crackling sound is all that comes from it now.
Summary: The home theater from Samsung is a good quality system. It has all the basic features. Nothing too fancy, just a good solid system. The bad thing about this purchase was buying from Capital Outlet. Nothing in the ad said the product was a demo or return. The ad leaves you to believe that the product is brand new. It arrived in a box slightly bigger than the orignal box with no padding.
Summary: At first I was a little hesitant when it came to buying refurbished equipment, but I have to say... this sound system was perfect for me. I don't use surround sound all that often, but when I do, I want to have something that sounds good. This system is definitely worth what I paid for it and more! In addition to the product, the company I purchased this equiopment from was very helpful.
