      I bought this mainly for the home theater functionality. I have my PS3/Xbox 360 hooked up to it in my gaming room. The dvd playback is pretty much standard stuff and par for the course...no problems what-so-ever. Great upscaled picture through the HDMI connection. Having a Toslink input is really nice. A lot of these DVD HT dont have that. The sound quality overall is pretty good. Just dont expect to be blown away or anything though, as thats not really the units strong point. The subwoofer could pack a bit more punch, but it gets the job done. If you plan to use it in a small sized room, you will be quite happy with the audio. If however you plan to use it in a large room, you may find the sound to be lacking. As is, its a nice quality unit with good surround sound in a small area. Also, I have had no issues playing DVD +/- R/RW discs, so you are good to go if that is important to you.

      DVD player stopped reading DVDs 2 months after purchase and 2 speakers produce loud humming noise and 1 doesnt even work at all after 5 months. I've never been disappointed in SAMSUNG products before but this is a terrible product! Now I cannot even request maintenance because this product is not listed.

          Comments about Samsung 5.1 Channel Black DVD Home Theater System:

          Decided to finally upgrade my Home Theater and was very glad I did. Was looking for a low cost upgrade from my previous system and was totally shocked at the difference in what I had compared to this unit. Will be looking to upgrade to an even better unit soon...No doubt that that unit will be Samsung as well.

            Comments about Samsung 5.1 Channel Black DVD Home Theater System:

            Prior Samsung stopped working. This unit had "better specs" but is not as good as old one. Radio is useless. Sound settings confusing. Sound not "up to par". I will probably keep because I am lazy.

                          The sound is great but you are limited to what wire they give you because it has special tips which does make it very easy to install. Also the test noise startled me. Badly. Also it is a bit complicated to get it just right on setup (this is more due to my gaming system and less of it). Also for some odd reason I have my Galaxy S 3 to play 5.1 Audio and it is only coming out as 2.1 on the system.

                          I love everything about this home theater except for the speaker plugs. Out last Samsung home theater have just the wires, so we had to redrill the holes in the ceiling. Would have been even better if it was wireless, but for the price, it's worth it and then some.
