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. Plugged it in went downstairs for 5 minutes and came back to everything being synced up, my Samsung TV, Samsung DVD player. Got my new tv installed on the was, and every night I've watched a different blue ray movie just because.
Summary: I bought this to replace a Sony HT-CT150 sound bar that I have been using for my living room setup. I do have to admit that that I miss the 3.1 channel that the Sony offered but I was having too many problems with volume fluxuations and felt I needed a better solution. The Samsung is a fairly powerful 2.1 channel sound bar that is very easy to set up and configure.
Summary: For the money, this is a good choice but I would not compare its sound quality to that of the Bose wave radio.. The Bose product has better sound quality. The wireless sub is nice for those who need wireless (me) but the sound from the sub is foggy and a bit distorted at higher volumes.. Also, if you are using fiber optic on the bar, be sure to get a cable with short end or connector and very flexible cable..
Summary: This is a great sounding unit. I compared this to several other sound bars, including the Sony HT-CT350 and thought this was a far richer, full- bodied sound than the others offered, even though we have this in a large family room with an open floor plan. Love the wireless subwoofer, and found it provides plenty of bass. There were two problems though that caused me to return it. First, it would intermittently turn itself off when near my Samsung TV!
Summary: My wife and I wanted to get better sound from our movies/games but didn't want to bug the neighbors in our apartment complex. This sound bar is a perfect choice. It is simple to set up, plug in the sub, the sound bar, and connect the digital optical audio cord from the sound bar to the tv. Go into tv and set up audio from tv to external speaker. Literally took me 3 mins from unboxing!
Summary: The new generation of flat screens are great; the best picture ever. The sound however has gotten as small and thin as the new panels themselves. The soundbar goes a long way to bringing back the days of having a good picture and good sound. Make no mistake, you will not be getting theater sound with this unit. You will not be turning your head wondering if something just whizzed by your head. You won't hear people talking behind you. This is not a surround sound system.
Summary: I purchased this soundbar for my Samsung LN46B550 46-Inch 1080p LCD HDTV with Red Touch of Color . The TV is mounted above the fireplace in my family room, and the soundbar is located just below it. These speakers are awesome! I am not an audiophile, but I do know what I like, which is crisp sound and good base when appropriate. The sound from the TV speakers is abysmal, but once I hooked up the soundbar I was blown away.
Summary: Pros - Good sound quality - Turns out automatically (Samsung TV) - Small enough to sit in front of TV without looking ugly or getting in way of picture - Subwoofer is wireless, making it easy to stash out of sight Cons (all fairly minor) - Can't easily see what sound type (Sports, Cinema, etc.
Summary: I've had this for several weeks now. The sound selections (e.g., cinema, news) provide preset EQ and reverb and the subwoofer is has its own volumne control. It's quite nice! My only complaint is the subwoofer frequency interferes with WiFi. I have Netflix (via my PS3) streaming to the TV. Prior to this purchase it worked flawlessly. Now Netflix looses the signal at least once during every movie and cannot regain the signal until I press the mute button for the speaker.
