Summary: After about a year's very infrequent use the sound bar would display "PROT" immediately when turned on. It would then shut itself off. Samsung Service indicated that the unit was overheating. Since it can't be turned on its hard to imagine that it is overheating.
Summary: I usually have good luck with refurbished unit. In fact; this was the first time I received a defective item. It is very cumbersome to repackage and ship back items such as rhis. I wish sellers did better quality control on their items before selling.
Summary: I ordered a refurbished unit. I unwrapped everything, hooked up the soundbar to the TV using the digital cable and followed the instructions to get the subwoofer to connect, but could not. The sound bar worked properly but, I couldn't get the subwoofer to connect.
The unit I got had to be switched out. However it sounds & works great

Summary: For the money you cant beat it. I really like how easy it was to hook everything up. I was up and running in less than 4 minutes. The wireless subwoofer is much more powerful than I originaly expected.

Priced a Best Buy for $400, a steal, so far I can't get enough.

Summary: Brought a refurbished product, first time ever buying refurbished. So far, product has by far exceeded my expectations. Small bedroom 150 sq feet, thing rooks, does everything I needed and more.
Summary: Bought this for 'mancave' in vacation home, the room is about 20x30 feet. Sounds great- I actually like it as much as my 5 piece Onkyo in primary home and if I didn't already have that I'd buy another one of these in a second. Looks sleek and nice too.
Summary: Our LED TV has rear facing built-in speakers making it difficult to hear unless the room is very quiet. The Samsung speakers look great mounted on the wall with the TV and sound very good. The wireless subwoofer can be put anywhere in the room ( hidden in our case) and has really good sound.
Summary: Mine just arrived today, and I am pretty pleased with it thus far. Take note that you will have to supply your own screws and wall anchors to place the hanging bracket on the wall, because Samsung doesn't provide them. I have this in my bedroom placed right below my Samsung LN46B550.
Summary: Bought this soundbar to go along with my 52" Samsung LCD. What a big improvement over the TV speakers! Watched 2 Blu-ray movies with it already and was very impressed by the sound. It was very easy to hookup. Just used the provided optical cable to connect the sound bar to the TV.
