The design is slick black and matches perfectly with the subwoofer -- this is probably the first time I've seen a subwoofer that actually looks nice in a living room. It also SOUNDS great, as I discovered later, which is more important. Installation is a breeze esp if your TV supports SmartConnect. I have a Samsung Smart TV (6300) which does not support SmartConnect/SmartShare but still it was easy to install. All I had to do was connect an optical cable from the soundbar to the TV. Then I turned it on, the sub recognized it immediately (a little blue light shows you that it did), I chose D.IN (digital in), changed the TV's audio from 'TV speakers' to the soundbar's, and I was good to go! Sound is above average for such a small arrangement with only 2 speakers, and if you're a true sound aficionado you may want to cough up more to get one of the higher-end models that exhibit 'warmer' sound. But for basic television/movies, games and music the sound is more than adequate. It does look great on any living room, especially if you have a special place for it above the television. But even if you don't, you can easily mount it on any wall as the soundbar itself is pretty light (mounting stand and screws are provided). The only negative thing is that the surround sound is pretty much useless. But then, I don't see how surround sound could possibly work on a 2.1 arrangement. Also, there's little difference in choosing 'Music' when listening to music as opposed to 'Standard' (for basic sound effects). But as I said, there is little point to these IMO in general, and one hardly ever uses them. There seem to be some issues with Anynet+ as far as I could see. For example, 'Auto Power' is supposed to allow the soundbar to turn on and off when the TV does, but this feature is not allowed with Anynet+ on... and even when you turn it off from your TV it STILL won't do it, for some reason.

Sorry Samsung. I own a lot of your products that I love but not this one. Hooked this up to a brand new 55 inch Samsung 7150. The sound was NOT better than the TVs built-in speakers. In fact, it was worse. It was muffled and hissed. The TVs speakers were MUCH clearer. I had it hooked up properly by way of ARC HDMI. The hook up was simple and worked as stated. Honestly, I would not use this sound bar even if it was free. The 7150 TV I love; it's great. Brought the sound bar back to Best Buy immediately.

      Comments about Samsung Black 2.1 Channel Home Theater AudioBar:

      I have owned this soundbar for 4 months now, and I have had zero issues with it. It starts up and connects every time. The sound coming out of the bar is crystal clear and the tones from the bass do not interfere while there is low talking. Sure there could be thump from the bass, but that's why it's a soundbar and not a home theater system. However, when playing video games (destiny) or watching action movies there is plenty of bass. Hooking the soundbar up through Bluetooth for music it rattles the entire living room. The best way to hook up the bar is through digital optical, so what if you can't get aynet to work, pick up the other remote and stop being lazy. People who have given this a bad review obviously don't know anything about home sound systems and how to connect things.

              I was looking for a soundbar that would compliment my 65" Samsung TV. The all in one home theatre that I had sounded OK, but was a hassle having multiple remotes. I needed something low profile as to not block the bottom of the TV screen. This soundbar fit perfectly and was a breeze to setup. It connected to my TV wirelessly and allowed for one remote. Granted it is not earth moving, rattle the windows loud, but the quality of the sound it produces is amazing! Could not be happier with my choice. Samsung does it yet again!

                  I bought this for a spare bedroom to improve over built in TV speakers. This speaker accomplishes that for cheap. It's not movie theater quality by any means but it serves it's purpose. It just needs more HDMI inputs in my opinion.

                      I use this in a smaller room and the bass and other audio characteristics perform quite well for me. I use this all the time every day and it improves the viewing experience of the tv, pandora etc.
