Returned sound bar and went for the surround sound!
I thought I could save a few bucks and went with a highly rated sound bar. Returned the sounds bar and purchased the HT-F5500w for basically the same price and what a huge difference....Read complete review
I thought I could save a few bucks and went with a highly rated sound bar. Returned the sounds bar and purchased the HT-F5500w for basically the same price and what a huge difference. Great 5.1 surround sound, easy to setup, features worked as expected. I read the comment about the HDMI-Arc feature and agree, my TV has it so it syncs up. I bought a new Samsung UN 65" 6300 series LED Smart TV and no issues with compatibility. The wireless rear speakers connect to a small receiver so there are a few wires between the speakers and wireless rear receiver but none to get to the back of the room. I love the bluetooth interface with my smart phone, very cool to play my whole library of music. Took less than 10 minutes to set up and I love the surround sound.

I am a Samsung product fan. I have and love the Galaxy S4 and I have a Samsung refrigerator and TV. I purchased this based on my good experiences with the product line. The Good: Easy initial setup. Wireless combined with Smart Hub makes Netflix and Hulu easier and with a better interface than Roku, Many other free and paid apps are available, including VOD. in fact I'm selling my Roku, this unit has made it obsolete. Speaker quality is OK, adequate for a receiver in this price range. Speakers and receiver are glossy black and attract dust, but cleaning is easy with the supplied cloth. FM radio pulls in nicely and the Bluetooth connectivity is easy and a nice feature. Rear speakers attach to a wireless pickup so there are no wires to run from the receiver to the rear of your listening area. The Bad: Sound setup is hard to get right. There are settings for speaker distance, levels, and an inadequate equalizer. Additionally there are 3D and Digitally processed effects available through the remote that I found make voices muddy while kicking up the surround effects. All in all I spent hours trying to get a good balance of voice clarity and surround to an acceptable level. The Ugly: Unit has a USB port in front covered by a flimsy attached tab that doesn't stay on very well or close flush to the unit. I had raise the level on the center speaker high to get voices to emerge with clarity, but they still sound "tinny" compared to my other (albeit much more expensive) Home Theater. Overall: Very good value for the price, go higher end if you are an audiophile, you wont get your sound fix here. Great as a second unit or small room setup.

Save your money.
from NW TN
Not a very well thought out design. Very "clunky" to maneuver around on the internet using the remote. Also, easy to hit the wrong button on the remote as the buttons are not easily identified with just your fingers, must be looking at the remote. The unit itself seems to be prone to "protection" shutdown with the volume at 18 or up. 18 is not very loud. Too many other "quirks to get into her. Just saying, I will NEVER buy another SAMSUNG product!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This is a fantastic Home Theater system, especially for the price. It works great and has plenty of features. The only thing I wish it had was more ports for HDMI inputs.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Nice design.....shaky performance
Pros: Unit looks nice. Works pretty well with my other Samsung devices. Decent price. Cons: Shuts down occasionally for no reason. Seems to be lacking in memory. I wish the subwoofer was louder. Needs more apps.

For the price this is a nice system. I like the wireless rear speakers. I wish it had a bigger sub to add more bass.
Great player. Except for the WiFi cuts off all the time!!!!
from Riverside, California
When using the wireless connection the wifi would shutdown. I thought the tv was far from the router and would stop working. (Thinking internet problems) Purchased chromecast for the same tv and wifi works perfect. THE WIFI RANGE IN THE BLUE RAY IS EXCELLENT JUST THAT IT SHOTS OFF.
THIS BROKE 1 DAY AFTER WARRENTY RAN OUT!
system was fine until one day after warrenty ran out then it started turning it self off with out any help what do you do about this!
No possible way to use headphones
from Orange County, CA, USA
I have the PN60F8500 plasma and this HT system. When I watch movies I like a lot of sound, but later at night it tends to disturb people, so my wife asked me to get some headphones to use when it's late. I attempted to see if there was someway to plug them in but there was nothing. Then I thought, what about the Bluetooth built in to the HT system. I bought a set of Bose Bluetooth stereo headphones but this did not work either. I was disappointed in this, how can you expect anyone to listen at night without disturbing anyone. I do have to say that this is really the only disappointment that I have with the unit. otherwise it does offer all the features that I need and they all work rather well for an integrated HT System.

Great Sounding system

This Blu Ray Player theatre system is very easy to learn. my only negative is the soft touch buttons on the front. Wish they were just regular push buttons.
