    I have wanted a soundbar since getting my first Samsung TV in 2011 but just couldn't justify the prices. I finally grabbed one with the price reductions that occurred around Thanksgiving. The improvement over the rear-firing speakers in televisions is significant. I have a 5.1 sound system on the same TV where I installed the soundbar but sometimes it's just not worth turning everything on for casual TV watching. The audio from a subwoofer-supported system adds a lot of additional enjoyment you cannot get from the speakers in a television. Besides the improvement realized while watching TV, I really like being able to stream audio from my smartphone to the soundbar. Now I can listen to AT40 on iHeart radio with much better fidelity. I still need to play MP3 files from a USB drive so see what that's like. In summary, if you're unsure about whether you will get much from a soundbar, let me assure you you will never regret purchasing one.

    I have this system connected to my Samsung TV via HDMI. The sub-woofer makes virtually no sound at all, and is worthless. I have the volume for the sub-woofer turned all the way up to +6, and still has no bass at all. The wireless symbol is lit, thus it is connected. The remote is cheap as well, and will not control my TV on/off, nor will the sound bar remote turn my TV on/off. Thus taking me from 1 remote to 3 remotes. The remote has no lighting at all, and there is no timer feature to automatically shut-off. Very unhappy with the overall features, and not really worth the price. Will give it another few days, but it looks like it is going back.

                          My husband and I purchased this sound bar to replace our surround sound system that I blew out. It was a great price and has wonderful sound. I love the fact that I can play music from my cell phone. Every thing sounds crisp and clear. I still haven't found out what setting is best to sync the sound when playing movies. Sometimes, it sounds like there is a little echo, nothing too major to disrupt the movie viewing process. Overall, I recommend this product!

                                  Recently bought the HW-H450 sound bar (my first one). Easily connected it up to my Samsung TV in a matter of mins. Tested the sound quality by watching various movies and listening to all types of music on numerous sound settings. Found the sound quality to be real and vibrant. Multiple options to connect to the sound bar (HDMi, AUX, etc). Connecting my Samsung G3 cell phone to the sound bar via Blue Tooth allowed me to listen to my favorite music in a matter of seconds. Another great Samsung product and value for money. Definitely recommend this sound bar.

                                    I had been looking for a really good home theater system for my large bedroom and searched countless websites and visited numerous stores. The result, the HW-H450: an amazing product that produces extremely clear and immersive sound with subwoofer that has the ability to pound the floor with deep base. This system had an easy setup although there were many components in the box but setup quickly and started working immediately plus the fact that it comes with a wall mount to hang the sounder and the subwoofer is 100% wireless, creating less wires and clutter. The 3D is also something to mention (an option of customization) that makes the single bar sound like a complete home theater system although I wish there could be some more depth. Love the bluetooth connectivity as well, to play thunderous songs from my phone in the other room! Overall: Amazing product that expands the true boundaries of how soundbars can perform and a definite buy for amazing immersive sound in a mid range product. Some minor drawbacks but nothing that should divert you from buying this, buy it and you won't regret it!

                                    I did lot of research before purchasing speakers for my TV. I have a 55 inch Samsung LED and these speakers are an excellent fit. The subwoofer provides a serious amount of bass and the soundbar itself gives rich and deep sound. Furthermore, the HDMI connection means that there is no loss in audio quality when compared to optical audio cable. I am quite happy with this purchase and would recommend it to other.
