Ok but not great...

W.W. Kinlaw, Amazon
30 September 2013
  • Summary: ... especially for the money it cost. Even the ok sound drops out regularly for a sentence or two before it self regulates and regains its composure. It's like listening to a teenage boy. On second thought make it two stars not three. Frankly, it's pretty disappointing.

Wireless junk

Daniel L., Newegg
1 December 2012
  • Pros: Sounded good when it worked.
  • Cons: Wireless sub stopped working after 13 months and Samsung wanted $150 for repairing. I recommend a wired version and a company that will stand behind it's products.

Great item minus one serious flaw

Sean L., Newegg
28 February 2012
  • Summary: I used a Samsung Sound Bar Mounting Bracket (ATB-10) which is made for LED Samsung TVs and just mod'ed it to fit my Series 5 46" Samsung (or whatever other TV brand you have as long as it has a point to mount on the back).
  • Pros: -Great sound in even in a larger apartment living room -Easy set up, works out of the box -ARC works perfectly (slight delay when using an HTPC that changes its output or display res, but picks it up in 10 sec)
  • Cons: The one MAJOR flaw in this that Samsung needs to fix is that when you are using AnyNet with a Samsung TV you can power both devices off using the same command, however, when you go to turn them on, the TV will turn on, but the sound bar will not. Its a well known issue that I got around using a T...

Did not love it

Stacey Shorb, Amazon
26 February 2012
  • Summary: We have a complete Samsung set up. Tv, blu-ray and wanted the sound bar to finish out the system. At first I was disappointed with the structural design of this. I was hoping to hang it under the tv. However the way it was designed there was no way to hide the wires. I was able to work with that.

Major upgrade from TV speakers

Michael N., Amazon
7 January 2012
  • Summary: This sound bar is amazing. Before I get into how much I like it, first let me say, the retail price is $449.00 plus tax. I purchased this from Amazon for only $327.00 with NO tax! I was looking for a nice upgrade from my TV speakers but I did not want the full theater, surround sound pieces.

Great sound

Kasmier T. Lukasewski "Truth in selling", Amazon
19 December 2011
  • Summary: I originally purchased the Samsung Electronics HT-D550 Home Theater System for my Samsung UN65D8000 65-Inch 1080p 240Hz 3D LED HDTV. The HT-D550 front speakers were at best mediocre and the center and surround sound did not work.

Fairly good product

Matt Halbeisen, Amazon
21 November 2011
  • Summary: This product is hooked up to my 50 inch LG lcd TV. It certainly does get loud enough, no background noise that I have been able to notice as of yet. The bass is decent, although a little loud during just speaking parts of the movies.

Meh it's ok

Tami W., Newegg
2 November 2011
  • Summary: If you have a smart series samsung there is no way for auto on with the HDMI Arc connection I hope they fix that in a firmware release soon. Paired with my 55" D6900 Series TV
  • Pros: ARC Connection is sweet. Decent bass, Single cable, wall mountable
  • Cons: Mine came with blown left side speakers which was extremely annoying. So currently is out for a RMA but is our of stock.. Not particularly happy this is the first time i have been un happy with newegg

Worked one night!!

Jay Boyer, Amazon
1 November 2011
  • Summary: Ok...really liked the unit when I was setting it up and it was pretty simple to get everything hooked up to the TV. After playing with the settings a little you definitely have to turn the sub up to +6 and overall it had a really good sound as we watched Fast Five on Blu ray.

THE DUMBEST PRODUCT SAMSUNG EVER MADE!

Aren Nazarians, Amazon
11 October 2011
  • Summary: I returned this soundbar for ONE MAIN REASON: In order to use this soundbar YOU MUST USE THE INCLUDED REMOTE CONTROL. How lame is that? Why the hell would I want to use a second remote just to turn on, adjust volume and turn off my audio.
