I would give this system a 5 star rating if the input selection didn't revert to the Digital input every time I turn the system back on. I use the HDMI1 input most of the time and leave it set to that when I power down the system, but every time I turn the system back on I have to cycle thru the input selections and set it back to HDMI1 so I can watch TV. It is puzzling! Maybe I am doing something wrong or have something configured wrong?!?! Most likely not as every other device I have stays set to what ever input/output I last selected. It's not a deal breaker as I have to use the supplied remote to power on the system anyway as my regular remote won't program to the unit. I plugged my HD cable box into the system with an HDMI cable then plugged the system into my TV with another HDMI cable and off I went. I also have a Samsung LCD TV that this is connected to and the Anynet feature connected automatically and works just fine. I didn't have to do anything and my remote controls the volume and the TV speakers were automatically turned off. Overall the system sounds great, programs that are broadcast in 5.1 sound great and non 5.1 broadcasts sound good too. The 'wireless' rear speakers setup and connected with no issue. The rear speakers are wired to a receiver/amp that plugs into an outlet, but it is wireless from the main unit. I would have liked a bit more bass but the system that this replaced had two sub-woofers instead of just one. I really like the fact that I don't have wires dragged across the room for the back speakers and for the small size of all the speakers the sound is good. The Blu-ray play back is great! I connected to my home network with no problem and was able to easily update the built-in software. I setup a Pandora account on the computer and then logged into it from the system and it seems to work well and sounds good. The vacuum tubes look cool too.

I have been into Samsung's products for a while. Every product I've had has been outstanding. This is my first Surround Sound system and Blu-ray as well. After getting everything set up initially it was great. Smart Hub loaded quick and Netflix wasn't far behind. After a week or so I started to notice its load times were getting longer and longer. Then it wouldn't load at all. Causing me to shut the device down and power it back on. Then it wouldn't load Smart Hub all together. I called technical support and they reset the device and still no Smart Hub. I was told to return the device for another. The next day the device was exchanged and still had long load times. I called technical support again and walked me through the device firmware updates. Which my player was up to date. I noticed more problems in the fact that it would every couple of days ask me to accept the terms and conditions of using the device. The technician told me after troubleshooting the device that I must give it at-least five minutes to load Smart Hub! I can Go in the other room and turn on my xbox360, log into Netflix, and start watching a movie before Smart Hub even loads. Majority of the time it never loaded and spit me back out to the selection screen. Other than all the above the sound is pretty good for the price range. Just wish it did'nt have so many bugs or software problems.

      I really like the system, however...it freezes up often while on Netflix and Hulu and that drives me crazy!!! The sound is great, but would like it very much if the commercials and the theme songs wouldn't get get so loud. Love this system with the movie, Twister...great sound!!!

        We have had this system for just under a year and the sound is great on it but a couple of months ago the Blu-ray player started acting up and not reading the movies we were trying to play in it whether they were dvds or blu-rays it did not matter. We are sending it away for service and we will see what happens then.

          Comments about Samsung 5.1 Channel 3D Blu-ray Home Theater System:

          I loved our HTIB until about two weeks ago. Purchased in January 2013 it ran perfectly for seven months. Over the couple of weeks the receiver started odd behavior, and in the past week it has gotten to the point where we cannot even watch TV because the receiver will "trump" our satellite and activate the DVD player for no reason. Then it begins to cycle through ALL the input source settings non-stop, while also opening and closing the DVD tray repeatedly. After doing some research online, apparently this is a well known bug for which Samsung has provided no solution. I have 3+ months left on my initial warranty, and I'm hoping they fix the problem. If they do, my ratings will go up. If they don't, I'll be an even more unhappy customer. As it is, for a receiver less than a year old to end up with this major flaw is unacceptable.

                  Do NOT buy this product. The system would not complete the latest firmware update over the wireless connection in my home; after the download, the "installing" just never ended and I left it on for over an hour. I spent about an hour and a half with tech support who tried to get me to download the firmware update to a USB drive only to find out that the file wasn't showing up on Samsung's own website (and yes, I tried with 3 different browsers!); finally I was able to download the file to a USB drive only to then discover that this system does NOT have a USB port!!! The system is now completely useless and will have to be replaced so I am looking at other brands. It worked great for about 2 years then this. Too bad because I always thought that Samsung was a good brand...not anymore.

                            This is my third HT and by far the best. I had two others from different companies and this unit out performs them both in sound as well as Picture quality. I felt as if I was watching 3D for the first time when I put my first movie in. The surround sound is elegant and subtle but always there. With my previous unit I had to add a speaker to put by me to hear talking and that obviously took a great deal away from the experience. With this unit I not only don't have to do that but I can listen to it at a lower volume. This is BY FAR the best Ht system I have had.

Speaker Wires are color coded + 1 HDMI cable to tv takes care of it all. DVDs look even better with up scaled progressive scan and even comes with iPod dock. Don't even get me started on blue ray and 3D. This unit really amplifies the whole movie watching experience. I can no longer watch movies without the surround, I'm more than satisfied with it, 2 thumbs way up.
