Ok sound. Bad Control

DEVIN C., Newegg
27 February 2013
  • Pros: The sound and form factor are pretty good for my needs. Blu-Tooth works well.
  • Cons: No publicly available discreet commands for On/Off and input selection make this soundbar hard to integrate into a smart remote.

It's ok

James, Amazon

  • Summary: Installed and works ok. We use TIVO w/ cable service & Samsung smart tv's but after adding these sound bars, when we turn the tv on, it comes on briefly and HDMI displays on the sound bar's panel, then the display changes to D-IN and the tv goes off, "searching for signal".

  • Summary: I bought this product because it was cheaper that the advertised one at best buy. I am overall pleased with the product for the price. Expect what you pay for. There are a few things that I dont like about it. 1. there are only two hdmi hookups. One for inbound and one for outbound. 2.

Good for price

  • Summary: Decent sound good value. This unit is not compatible with directv remotes. Unless you have a universal remote, or plan on purchasing, you are stuck with two remotes.

On/Off and Volume Control Solution

  • Summary: Ordered this after Best Buy ran a promotion to get this sound system for free with the purchase of one of their higher end Samsung televisions. Amazon was very good about getting this sound system.

Economical choice with oddly poor integration with a Samsung TV

TORES, avsforum.com

  • Summary: You would assume that if a single manufacturer like Samsung produces a high quality LED television, they would tightly integrate the soundbars they intend to sell with them right? That is, assuming they are both current models.
  • Pros: Sound is decent for just $250. Price negotiation can be easier or promotions may apply with the purchase of a Samsung TV. HDMI IN/OUT & TOSLINK
  • Cons: Integration with even a Samsung TV is poor. For half the price of a low end JBL sound bar, you get half the sound quality.

Your rating will be based on your expectations.

VegasDV "VegasDV", Amazon

  • Summary: I would probably offer a 3.5 rating if available, but settled on 3 since this sound bar is closer to average than very good or excellent. I purchased the version from Costco, which is identical to the E450 with the exception that "C" version included HDMI and Optical audio cables (one each).

Could be better

Frederick K. Hall, Amazon
22 June 2012
  • Summary: The sound from this unit is excellent. The installation is quick amd easy. I would have given it 5 stars but for one problem. It can only be controlled by the supplied remote. I have it connected to a Dish receiver and a Samsung TV and neither of these remotes can be programed to operate the volume,...

A little disappointed.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
1 November 2012
  • Summary: Hmm. I did quite a bit of research before I bought this and it came Down to a fight between the hwe450 or the Yamaha yas101. The reason I went with the Samsung is twofold, the Samsung has a separate subwoofer and my telly and blue ray are Samsung so wanted the benefit of Anynet.

Ok - but not great

C. Waters, Amazon
19 August 2012
  • Summary: After reading through the reviews, I thought this sound bar would be exactly what I was after to fit under my 40" Sony tv. I wanted two things: 1. clear crisp sound 2. virtual surround and not being an audiophile, I didn't want to spend a fortune on something that my ears would not even notice....
