I have wanted a soundbar since getting my first Samsung TV in 2011 but just couldn't justify the prices. I finally grabbed one with the price reductions that occurred around Thanksgiving. The improvement over the rear-firing speakers in televisions is significant. I have a 5.1 sound system on the same TV where I installed the soundbar but sometimes it's just not worth turning everything on for casual TV watching. The audio from a subwoofer-supported system adds a lot of additional enjoyment you cannot get from the speakers in a television. Besides the improvement realized while watching TV, I really like being able to stream audio from my smartphone to the soundbar. Now I can listen to AT40 on iHeart radio with much better fidelity. I still need to play MP3 files from a USB drive so see what that's like. In summary, if you're unsure about whether you will get much from a soundbar, let me assure you you will never regret purchasing one.

I have this system connected to my Samsung TV via HDMI. The sub-woofer makes virtually no sound at all, and is worthless. I have the volume for the sub-woofer turned all the way up to +6, and still has no bass at all. The wireless symbol is lit, thus it is connected. The remote is cheap as well, and will not control my TV on/off, nor will the sound bar remote turn my TV on/off. Thus taking me from 1 remote to 3 remotes. The remote has no lighting at all, and there is no timer feature to automatically shut-off. Very unhappy with the overall features, and not really worth the price. Will give it another few days, but it looks like it is going back.

Sound bars are great for the bedroom
from Philadelphia, PA, USA
Comments about Samsung 2.1 Home Theater Audio Soundbar System:
The H450 is a great audio system for your bedroom and even a den. It's has a powerful wireless sub woofer that pounds if u have it in a corner of the room. I have to put the sub woofer level on negative, or the rest of the house will get mad. Lol! But there ain't to many features to adjust certain things. Samsung has pre adjusted settings, that are nice but I would like to have a little more freedom with controlling the highs ,minds and they let u mess with the sub. It has a setting that makes it sound like 3D it's a nice feature I use that for everything. The system hooks up fast and easy to learn and sounds great. If there was one thing that I would like to add besides more controls of the equalizer, it would be to add 2 to 3 fears speakers that are Bluetooth. I love that the sub woofer is wireless it would be a good addition to be able to add rear speakers. P.s. It comes with a wall mount witch I thought I was gonna have to buy extra. Two thumbs up!!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

from Marysville, WA, USA
For the price, this Sound bar is pretty good. When I first hooked it up, it seemed like it had an issue with dropping audio every so often for just a quick second, but I have not noticed that lately (maybe I have just gotten use to it). Additionally, I am not sure why my Samsung Smart TV does not recognize the Samsung Sound bar part number when setting up the audio section on my TV.. I do like the wireless sub woofer. It allows you to place it wherever you want without the unsightly wiring of wired equipment. Also it sounds really great!
Simple set up and good sound
from Fort Worth, TX
Super easy to set up. The subwoofer synced with the soundbar quickly and without issues. It also synced with my TV via Bluetooth without issue. The sound quality is great for the money. It adds significantly more depth of sound than the TV speakers alone. Recommend for all on a tight budget.
Doesn't work fully
from New England
I bought this to improve the poor sound from my Samsung TV when using the SMART Hub apps or a connected device. No matter how many times I try to pair the sub woofer to the main unit it will not work. The remote is very cheap and almost never functions so despite the fact that the main unit produces sound (minus bass) I have no way to adjust it unless I walk over to the TV and do it by hand. It also will not turn on or off with the TV and continually says to check the sub woofer.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Only so so over TV speakers
Not what I expected on a sound bar, it is a refurbished unit so that may be the problem. Not a WHOLE lot better then Samsung speaker on tv
from Orlando, FL, USA
I do like this product, but there is no stereo internally, which I thought it had for some reason. My fault.

Terrible System -- Good Features (when they work!)
from Long Island, New York, USA
Worked fine for about 6 months. Easy set up initially and it paired instantly with the TV through SoundConnect. However, about 6 months later (and continuing) it does not sync up with the TV easily. I constantly get a message "TV WAIT" on the screen flashing. Sometimes shutting it off and turning it back on works, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes turning the TV itself and the soundbar off and starting from scratch works. Once it finally connects, you have to deal with about 15 minutes of choppy sound until it finally "warms up" (for want of a better term) and then it's clear. I wish I could return this item, but it's beyond the return date. I would definitely NOT recommend this soundbar or any Samsung soundbar at this point. Very disappointed.
Good value for the price
This was a very good value for the price. Very easy to use.
