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.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
wifi connection issues
I bought the HT-F5500w home theater a few days ago and it has wifi connectivity issues. It looses signal frequently and is very hard to stream hulu plus and netflix with it. I bought this specifically for streaming, but the wifi connection problem makes it impossible to use. The unit suggest contacting my internet provider, yet the smart phones, tablets and laptops already using the wireless connection never have a problem.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Very good quality for less price.

Comments about Samsung Black 5.1 Channel 3D Blu-Ray Home Theater System:
It would have been great if it comes with qwerty keyboard and audio jack/ipod dock for playing music.
Bought this for the thanks giving. I bought a 46'' 6800 LED TV and I knew that LED TVs need to have home theater to match their stunning picture. The inbuilt speakers with the TVs are just adequate. I, being an ardent Samsung fan, went with this model. 4400 was too less in features and 6600 was too costly for me. So 5500 was the best bet and I am not disappointed. I can clearly see the difference when I listen from the TV and when I listen from this. It is loaded with features... HDMI, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 3D... what not!! I cannot ask for more. But I am seeing some issues with the Wi-Fi connectivity. I system gets disconnected from the Wi-Fi very frequently... not sure if this is an issue with the product or with my Wi-Fi router. I need to confirm this and will udpate! But overall... superb product with excellent features and solid quality. GO GET IT!!!
loud and crisp, full of features
from New York, NY
the wireless rear speakers are awesome, no more cables from the front of the room. It has many apps and built-in wi-fi, and if connected to a samsung tv they see each other and makes the remote control work as one.
Just what I wanted

I wanted a HTIB that had a least 1 HDMI input. This fit the bill, with wireless surround as a bonus! A powered sub would have been nice, and the remote could have been a little better, but I am happy with my purchase. We watched a movie and the surround effect was excellent.
Home theater system,5.1 channel (HT-F5500W)
very good system sound's great ,only thing I see that could do is give you a lil longer wires for back speakers.
I love it!
from Milwaukee, WI
Great surround sound. I shopped for a month for a sound system for my new Samsung 60" LED. This system more than meets our needs, and is an outstanding value for the money. There are so many options, it took me a while to figure it out. The only criticism regards the manual. There is no index or table of contents. It is heavy on video and light on audio. The FM radio instructions are buried deep within the manual, on page 39. A minor vexation, but an irritation none the less.
