Summary: I was very excited to receive my package and begin enjoying the sound from this product. The first week was flawless and the sound was surprisingly good to come from a single source. The sub linked up and worked quite well and had better than average sound as well.
Summary: Bought this sound bar for a friend that just had to have Samsung. I installed it with no problem, but you can not use just on remote to control it even with a Samsung TV. It turns off with the remote, but it will not turn it on. Do yourself a favor and buy a Boston Acoustics Tvee25.
Summary: We got this refurbished for about $250. It's super annoying to setup if you have Verizon Fios...you need to order extra HDMI/mini-HDMI cables, or optical cables, if you want the best quality video/sound. And the setup is kind of confusing..
Summary: Amazingly, even though most of the useful TV remote features work when using Anynet+ with the ARC HDMI connection (including turning the HW-D550 off), Samsung inexplicably left turning the sound bar on out of the feature set.
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.
Summary: First this system's input/output using HDMI is a MINI-HDMI connection (so 3D video pass through is not supported, not required for me since I am using on a UNC6500). I was somewhat shocked that there was only 1 mini-HDMI to HDMI cable included in the Box, so you will have to go buy another cable if...
