Summary: Overview: Only my second Home Theatre in Box (HTIB) in 8 yrs, never used separate components, not a sound audiophile, just wanted good sound for DVDs. Sony BRAVIA DAV-HDX589W, purchased on 6/25/10 (Friday afternoon) for $329 and signed up for Amazon Prime to get free 2 day shipping.
Summary: Hook up and install took about 30 minutes because of the packaging but the DVD setup made it easy to get synced and up and running. The first movie I watched was amazing and the sound was far superior than expected. The rear speakers make you feel like in a theater or better yet in the movie!
Summary: This was my first home theatre purchase and i wasnt sure if it was the best choice, i admired the samsung for its looks though remembered a previous bad encounter with a Hifi i bought some years back, the panasonic home theatre also caught my attention in the cost range but following reviews, i gave...
Buyers should be aware that this is DVD system, not a home theater system

Summary: This system has some good features... it sounds great, it looks good with the piano black finish... its easy to use and to install, plus the wireless speakers are great but here's what I think of the little details that makes this thing deserve a 3 star review: 1.
Summary: This system replaced a 15 year old bose system. The sound is wonderful. The set up was a snap, especially with everything being color coded. I had no trouble with the wireless back sound. I am even thinking about buying another one for the basement.
Summary: This system comes with clear instructions but still takes some time to get up & running. The box had a gash in it that looked like a forklift hit it, luckily nothing was harmed. The speakers are lightweight but don't hinder the performance.
Summary: This system has a very cheap look and feel. Very plastic and lightweight. It has no inputs for external devices other than the included iPod dock and even that does not have an on-screen display so there is no way to navigate the iPod other than standing next to it.
Summary: I bought this system cause I own a Sony HDTV and figured Sony compatability would make things easier to work with. It took me about 2 hours to get everything up and running....was a little more complicated than I thought it would be.
