      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.

      the smart volume which is meant to level volume as you tune through different channels often doesn't normalize volume. Its either too loud or too low. The manual states that the BD E-6500 can be connected via the HDMI in jack and that both picture and sound can be transmitted to and fro the TV. I never succeeded with this, instead i had to connect the Bluray player directly to the TV and use the Audio Return Channel option instead. Asides these, it is a nice product.

      Sleek design with powerful output

      Comments about Samsung 5.1 Channel Black DVD Home Theater System:

      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.

          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.

                  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.

                              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.
