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.

Great Value for the money
from Klamath Falls, OR, USA
Great for small home theater systems. Does not replace your home stereo as this unit is solely for Blue Ray use. Great sound in small package.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comment on this review
Great system but rear speakers aren't satisfactory.
I will take away one star because the rear/wireless speakers barely produce any audible sound unless blasting at full volume (which in my opinion is unreasonable). Otherwise, overall I am very happy with my product and will always purchase only samsung products.
Second theater system
from Theresa, New York
I bought an older model a few years ago and I liked the sound quality so much I bought this system which has the wireless surround speakers
The best of the home theaters
Samsung might take a look at this home theater to inspire any future products. It has excellent sound, software that works very well, and integrates nicely with online services like Netflix, Viki, etc. Overall, this is the best of the home theaters, IMHO. Oh yes, and if you have a Samsung TV, the remote automatically controls that too!
Awesome home theatre system
from Selangor, Malaysia
Simply superb, making home entertainment like a cinema theatre experience without having to leave home.
Bad speaker connection
from Buford GA
Wireless rear speakers lose connection quite frequently. If I only wanted front speakers I would have bought a sound bar. Remote is picky about angle to main unit. Way too slow to respond to commands. If you already know everything about DSP, DOLBY PRO LOCIC II, audio return channel, and msmpeg4 v3 maybe you can understand the manual. Otherwise it is useless.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great bang for buck
from United States
After having larger HTs I was not sure about how good this would sound, but it sounds very good. I would like to see more control over surround sound options. Put in a good DVD and all is well. It works very good for music as too. Samsung did a great job on this.
Not very good
Took 2 of this same product back twice in 2 weeks. First on had a blown speaker right out the box and second the bd player would not play regular DVD after a week. Found out that this product is no longer sold through best buy. Ended up getting money back and going with a different bd player.
I love my new system!
Fairly simple to set up, took me a bit of time to realize all of the features due to the user manual going all over the place, at least in my opinion. I like a straight forward, step-by-step manual. Other than that, it works perfectly, and my husband and I about blew our ears out listening to some awesome music DVDs on our first night! It looks sleek and shiny, and I could not be more pleased, And the price was definitely right for me.

Amazing Theater System at a good price.
I came here looking at the reviews and saw that a few people had some connectivity issues and was my main concern but after i setup my system on WI-FI it worked flawlessly. Had good connection Netflix, Hulu , Pandora and YouTube worked really good. The sound is amazing have no problem with it . Sounds beautiful with a sound bar, all around a really great product. Would recommend it to all my friends.
