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.

The overall sound quality and performance of this product a strong. There is a disappointment with only having one HDMI in port but I can live with that. Easily resolved with a splitter if you are willing to pay for one. The wireless rear speaker is a nice to have option. Keep in mind that you can only use the rear speakers wirelessly. You can not home run the cabling back to the unit itself. My personal disappointing piece to this purchase is the lack of mounting brackets out there for the speakers. One would think that this is not a Samsung issue but turns out it is. On the back of the speakers there is a square keyhole. Not the standard round. Due to the keyhole being square most wall mounting kits WILL NOT work. Buyer beware if you are looking to mount the speakers on the wall. If you find a solution please post back and if I figure out a solution I will be sure to inform you all.

Upgraded to this unit when I purchased a Samsung 60" LED TV. A great match!! Outstanding quality audio and video. Strong audio, wireless surround speakers, easy setup. MAKE SURE you have a TV with HDMI-ARC to take advantage of this units HDMI -ARC connection. If you have an HDMI-ARC TV, then it won't be aggravating when this unit boots up because it goes to directly to D.IN mode by default. Very compatible with my Samsung TV. Love AnyConnect!! Only negative... one HDMI port.
Great sound and interface!

I just bought this surround sound system about a month ago and I love it! It has great sound and I love the wireless back speakers. Being able to play movies of my computer via wireless is amazing. The bass of the sub woofer sounds great! Its like a movie theater in my house now! Highly recommend!!

I just installed this on my TV. As most do it this day and age, I connected the unit with an HDMI from my source (DirectTV but any of the others- such as cable are the same) and an HDMI from the unit to the TV. Samsung Anytime lets is all be controlled from 1 remote, which is how is should work. When you power off the system, no problem, but when you power on, the HT-F automatically looks for a digital- in connection. You have to hit the "Source" button (upper right button on player remote) twice to get to the HDMI connection. EVERY TIME you start up. There is no way around this, seriously, how foolish? I went with a Samsung unit to match the TV to allow 1 remote, and simple usage. Having to scroll source every start in not simple or acceptable with today's "SMART" equipment. Too bad, the rest of the system looks good, sounds more then adequate for a "in- the -box" system. I DO NOT recommend a Samsung HTS.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I use this sound system with the 3D and the sound is like it's in 3D also. The sound is so realistic that with the 3D TV we really seem like we are in the middle of the action. I can't find a thing wrong that I could relate about the product. It was the easiest sound system that I've ever set up!! You've got to love it!!

Awesome product however
perform a firmware upgrade straight away. I bought this product and spent 2 hours troubleshooting the connection between the player and my router. My router could see the blu-ray player just fine but the player would drop connection after a minute. After performing a firmware upgrade via USB, the internet popped up on the blu-ray player and has been holding steady ever since. Everything else about this product is fantastic. 10/10 would do.
Great system but it appears Samsung forgot to give a way to interface an I Pod with the system which was a huge disappointment for me as my music library is on mine and an excellent way to access. Other than that it's a great system and love how it connects to my Samsung 3D Smart TV. Maybe in the future Samsung may have the initiative to add an accessory to allow I Pod use.
