Works great with my Samsung 7100 series television. Just plugged it into the wall and the sound from my television was playing on the soundbar. I also use the bluetooth feature to play music from my iPhone. The only downside is that occasionally there is some feedback from the bluetooth signal, both with the television and phone. Awesome sound and sleek look.

Since I had a 6 month old Samsung HDTV I thought a Samsung soundbar would play nice - not exactly . . . . Purchased this from a national wholesale club this past weekend. Model # has an additional letter but basically the same. This was to be paired with a 2012 Samsung 46" 6030 Series HDTV. Great TV but built in speakers are junk. Hoped a soundbar would help. The sound is much better than stock TV speakers and the sub adds some depth. Have tried both HDMI and Digital In / Optical Cable connection. With Optical Cable soundbar will be powered on when you turn on the HDTV - not so with HDMI. Neither connection type will allow my 2012 HDTV to control volume or mute on the soundbar. I have to use the soundbar remote plus my TV remote for all other functions. This is what I was hoping to avoid by purchasing a Samsung product. The "Anynet" or wireless "SoundShare" sync feature, which allows the TV to control the soundbar, is on the 2013 models. It would seem fairly simple for a Samsung soundbar to be designed to read the same IR signal from a Samsung TV remote. So far I cannot find a universal remote with a code for this soundbar. Will be returning it to the store this week. Disappointed.

    after looking for days at sound bars I settled on the H550 it had all the features I was looking for I hooked it up in under 30 min and the sound is great for a small size bar I have it with my 60 in sony 850 very crisp and clear sound even the voices are clear the sound fields are very good also could use a bit more thump from the sub for tv watching but with a Blu-ray playing this bar rocks and there is plenty of thump there turned up the volume during a movie to 25 and my floor was shaking and I have a good size living room overall I am very happy with this unit it`s a keeper...thanks Samsung

            Comments about Samsung 5.1 Channel Black DVD Home Theater System:

            I was really pleased with the sound quality of this sound bar the instant we set it up. So much so my In-laws went out and purchased one as well. However, what I don't understand is why the set up instructions are incomplete! I happened to have the correct HDMI hook up on the back of my Samsung TV to use the bar right out of the box. My In-laws weren't as lucky and we couldn't figure out how to get the system to work with their TV. So we had to head to store to ask someone what to do and low and behold you a special cord to hook it up to the TV. Absolutely NO mention of this type of cord was mentioned in the directions. What is the story with that?

              The soundbar is relatively ok. But the subwoofer is horrible. The subwoofer have to constantly reset itself and goes in and out during movies and shows.

                  First thing you notice is the very small form factor of the main speaker assembly. Then there is the absolutely awesome sound that you can't believe is coming from the very slim main speaker array. The gloss black sub woofer pumps out the bottom line sound that goes great with the mids & highs coming from front and center, a perfect complement of sound, Samsung hit it out of the park with this little system. Keep up the great work!

                  I was having problems with my older soundbar and my son purchased this one for me. The sound is fantastic. Hard to imagine that much sound out of something so small.

                    Easy to install. Very good sound quality for the price. Just what I needed for my 40" Samsung TV. The only complaint I have is that it does not work with the TV remote you have to use the sound bar remote and program it for your tv. I will never understand why if every product I have is made by Samsung I can't run them all off one remote. Other than that its a very good product for the money.
