Summary: I purchased this to go with my 40" Samsung TV. I did not want multiple speakers with wiring running all over the place and I did not want the expense of buying a wireless home entertainment system. This was an excellent solution.
Summary: "Crystal" is an understatement!!! This may be a bit much for the office; however, I'm in Afghanistan and I need my office to feel as close to "home" as possible. The equipment has Bluetooth capabiliites and the music from my iPod is amazing. Of course, the TV and Blu-Ray sounds are phenomenal .
Pros: I've read quite a few reviews and for the money it was either the Vizio VHT215 (preferred) or this Samsung HW-E450. The Vizio (based on reviews) probably has a bit better sound quality, but is about $40 more; also refurbished (elsewhere). So when I saw this Samsung for $150 (at elsewhere) with fr...
Cons: No HDMI or optical cable and no batteries for the remote.
Summary: I love this sound bar. Although, it is NOT a 5.1 full surround sound system, it works great as a second tier replacement. I love that the subwoofer is wireless. The only downside is that my TV doesn't have an HDMI OUT feature to run a cable from my cable box to my tv, then to the sound bar.
Summary: The system was extremely easy, with only minutes to install. The wireless sub-woofer worked the first time plugged-in as it was previously set up by the manufacturer, Samsung. Real good quality sound for the money. I connected the sound bar to a 60" Samsung T.V.
Summary: I bought this system to replace an aging Yamaha 5:1 System. The Samsung HW-E450 is just perfect for my needs. I have it wall mounted under my 50" Flatscreen and its terrific. The sub-woofer is wireless so it makes for an easy and very clean setup.
