    Works great with my Samsung 7100 series television. Just plugged it into the wall and the sound from my television was playing on the soundbar. I also use the bluetooth feature to play music from my iPhone. The only downside is that occasionally there is some feedback from the bluetooth signal, both with the television and phone. Awesome sound and sleek look.

    Since I had a 6 month old Samsung HDTV I thought a Samsung soundbar would play nice - not exactly . . . . Purchased this from a national wholesale club this past weekend. Model # has an additional letter but basically the same. This was to be paired with a 2012 Samsung 46" 6030 Series HDTV. Great TV but built in speakers are junk. Hoped a soundbar would help. The sound is much better than stock TV speakers and the sub adds some depth. Have tried both HDMI and Digital In / Optical Cable connection. With Optical Cable soundbar will be powered on when you turn on the HDTV - not so with HDMI. Neither connection type will allow my 2012 HDTV to control volume or mute on the soundbar. I have to use the soundbar remote plus my TV remote for all other functions. This is what I was hoping to avoid by purchasing a Samsung product. The "Anynet" or wireless "SoundShare" sync feature, which allows the TV to control the soundbar, is on the 2013 models. It would seem fairly simple for a Samsung soundbar to be designed to read the same IR signal from a Samsung TV remote. So far I cannot find a universal remote with a code for this soundbar. Will be returning it to the store this week. Disappointed.

    Very nice...

    By Linelead24

    from TN

    Pros

    • Bright display
    • Lightweight

    Cons

    • make sure to keep wireless routers 10+ ft away.

    Best Uses

      Excellent ease of use, wonderful sound outside of their vacuum tube models, nice compact size over other manufacturers. Wireless subwoofer, wireless TV connect and auto power-on with newer Samsung Smart TV's makes for a nice combination. As with most devices that communicate through Bluetooth channels, make sure you keep your wireless router away from the soundbar as they interfere with each other and may cause your subwoofer to disconnect intermittently. Enjoy!!

          OH MY GOD , I was blown away by this sound bar , by far it has many wonderful features, great clarity and sound. The different modes for gaming which i do a lot take it's sound to another level, music sounds great being able to walk around the house playing music from my phone and tablet as well as my Mac thru bluetooth is amazing . At the price you're getting something well worth it trust me. Good job here Samsung Hope this helps someone you won't be disappointed . Take care

                    Very inexpensive sound bar and sounds incredible!! I've used it for movies, sports and just cartoons for the little one. Makes the tv speakers sound like junk. Crystal clear sound and I love the auto volume so the commercials don't kill your ear drums. Good work with this Samsung, keep it up!!

                    Best Uses

                      Purchased this sound bar to work with my Samsung TV. I wanted the nice soundshare features, so I didn't look at other bars. Connected easy enough and when I went to give it a test, it was crackling on the higher frequencies. I tried different songs, different inputs....all the same. There had been so many positive reviews, I thought mine may have been a lemon, so I sent it in for repair. It came back with new parts and the same crackling issue. Highly disappointing. If you buy it, test music at reasonable volume and take it back if you suspect it's not right.

                        I noticed there was some audio quality loss at higher volumes especially within the high range when connected over Bluetooth. e.g. all share, iPhone. However it connected quickly and easily with my new Samsung TV rather seamlessly!

                              Comments about Samsung 2.1 Channel Black Soundbar System:

                              Had this sound bar for a month now. Very happy with the clear and impressive sound we get out of this very attractive little unit. Looks great sitting in front of my Samsung set, looks like it's part of the t.v. Big bang for your buck. If you don't need to knock walls down with a sound system this is just fine for the money. When you get it turn it up and be impressed.
