    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.

        Very nice sound, really does give it my TV theater quality sound to my viewing experience. Easy to set up, easy to use. The LED display is a little small and hard to read from a distance, but that is not a big issue.

            I bought this to add more sound to my TV in my bedroom.. It sounds great the Bluetooth sub woofer puts off great bass and it has the 3-D sound like there is more speakers there then what it has. This was a perfect fit for my 40 inch Led Samsung TV.

                I have had this soundbar for 5 months and the bluetooth connection quit working. I have to send it in to have it repaired, which will take 2 weeks. They do not replace them. You have to go without your soundbar all this time.

                good little sound bar I would buy it again.

                Comments about Samsung 5.1 Channel Black DVD Home Theater System:

                I have extremely sensitive hearing to the point that around large stereo equipment I can hear the transformers or the voice coil take a charge. So when the more mechanical speaker parts wears out it will bother me. As was the case with my TV speakers sound. I kept telling my girlfriend that it was time to replace the speakers for the TV room. She rolled her eyes at this telling me that she didn't hear any difference in the sound quality. When I plugged this little guy in and turned it on I wish I had a camera for the girlfriend’s response. Her head almost snapped right around immediately then she said “wow that sounds much better!� good little sound bar I have had it for months i would buy it again.

                      I have owned this unit for about six months now and have had nothing but problems trying to keep it connected via Bluetooth to my Samsung 7100 LED TV. The sound constantly cracks and cuts out. But if I connect it via wire it works fine. Just have to use 2 remotes, one to turn the channel and other for volume. What a waist.

                              Turned a bedroom into a TV/Game room. Got a new 55" curved Samsung 3D TV. After about a week I realized I was missing just one thing, a sound system! Just got this sound bar last night and setup took about 5 to 10 minutes. Turned it on and watched a music video, me and my son were amazed at how much a different viewing experience it made. Totally impressed how much great quality sound comes from a sound bar and sub woofer. Looking forward to movie night this weekend and the Superbowl.

                                Overall: I am really happy I went with this soundbar. I got this for a 60" TV in my main living room. It sounds fantastic compared to the TV speakers. The speaker looks great, and was easy to set up. I am really glad I went with this model, and would buy it again! Very happy Design: The overall look of the soundbar is very clean. It has a slim design. The small screen it has is not overpowering, so it is not distracting when watching TV. It really is a good looking speaker! Sound: There are a handful of different sound effect settings. Each of them sound pretty good! I can't believe how much better the soundbar is than the stock TV speakers. I am so glad I upgraded. It makes movies a whole new experience for me at home now. (I actually have recently gotten another soundbar for my bedroom after hearing how good this one sounds) Bluetooth: The speak syncs very easily with a phone. It makes for a great stereo in the living room. It sounds great and is easy to use. Sync with TV: Here is my only con with the soundbar. I have a different brand TV and the soundbar doesnt sync seamlessly with the TV. I was eventually able to get it to half way work with the TV remote when I used the HDMI ARC connection. I still have to power on the speaker, once I do that I can control the volume with the TV remote. I just wish they made it easier to sync remotes and have auto power on features.
