Summary: This home theatre system is not what I'd would usually buy since it's not top of the line in sound or quality but I bought it because it was a dedicated system that would work well with my Samsung smart TV. Also, since it was being installed in a small room I wasn't that concerned about the sound quality and features. For what it's worth, it produces decent sound an bass volume and it's priced fairly.
Summary: I have everything hooked up fine HDMI in the ARC took me a lone time to hook up but I eventually figured it out. Here my problem the sub wolfer does NOT make any sound. I'm not sure what to do with this issue and I noticed that the light on the wolfer stays red so I have sound but no bass. HELP if anyone can tell what I'm doing wrong it will be greatly appreciated.
This item is NO comparison to a traditional surround setup. Do not buy if that's what you're looking for.

Summary: Well I had pretty high hopes for this soundbar. A cheaper alternative to a surround system without all the hassle of wires and setup? Sounds good to me!! Overall though I was pretty disappointed unfortunately. I had purchased this as an upgrade to the TV speakers on my Samsung UN55D8000. While it works fine, $350-$400 still isn't chump change and I was expecting a lot more for the money. Pros: - Good midrange levels.
Summary: After several frustrating hours trying to get this sound bar connected to my new Samsung UN43D8000 TV I was about to pack it up and return it. The manual is next to worthless and the information I received from one of the Samsung support techs said the only way to get it to work was with the Optical connection. This is not true. A second call to the TV support techs helped. Now it's working and I wanted to let you know what we did to get it to work.
Satisfied with sound quality, but disappointed in additional features.

Summary: Just purchased this soundbar, and the sound quality was great for what I was looking for. The subwoofer might be a little weak, but I'm satisfied as long as it performs better than my TV speakers. On the other hand, I was disappointed in how the soundbar doesn't seem to work well with other devices. I have a samsung tv with anynet+. According to the manual, the TV's remote should be able to control the sound bar.
Summary: I bought the sound bar instead of buying a new receiver and surround system. I would say it is adequate at best. It has decent sound, but nothing like a 5.1 system would provide. I am still trying to like it, but the most I can say is "it's OK" I have a Yamaha system hooked up to my TV in my basement family room. I thought about moving the system to my new living room TV but decided not to.
Summary: Item wont shut off with my tv control....plus only works on my tv with analog, not digital sound. Also does not come with much instructions so I can connect a differnt way so I can receive the digital sound I would have liked to hear.
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. The con that ive seen is that it didn't come with a toslink cable, so I have to constantly get yelled at by my fiance when I unplug it to plug in my 7.1 surround headset because I need my Gears of War 3 pumped strait into my brain.
Summary: Was not impressed, but for the money (a lot lower than retail) they are still better than just what your TV has to offer. If your looking for a home entertainment quality sound system this is at best fair. The sound quality does not provide the depth compared to other systems that have speakers separated. If you have a Samsung TV, the controller can also adjust the sound. So, if your looking for the next step up compared to the TV sound these work.
