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.

            I currently have a galaxy s5.... And while trying to play via Bluetooth it will only play for about 10 minutes and then disconnect. It only does that with the galaxy s5 to my knowledge. . I did connect it with multiple other phone with no problem

                  This HW-550 Soundbar sounds great.It synced perfectly with my Samsung TV and My Samsung Tablet.The wireless subwoofer really pounds out the walls in my small living room. There are several sound effects but I find using the Cinema effect sitting fairly close sounds best. You can adjust the bass and treble for each effect to fine tune it. There is No annoying lights when you are not changing functions,that is a big deal when you sit close, just a small blue light on the sub that really doesn't glare in your eyes. So far I am very pleased and hope to get many years and several TV's from it.

                      Great sound and so powerful! I tested the Bluetooth with my phone and the music sounds great coming from this powerful sound bar! The sub sound is clear and the whole overall performance so far since purchase I enjoy a lot. Definitely not a disappointment well worth the money spent!

                              I purchased this sound bar to attach to a Samsung smart TV. I tried several ways to connect the sound bar and via HDMI cable worked best. Main issue is that the sound breaks in and out and the sound bar must be restarted. Very disappointed.
