Bought this to replace our 10 yr. old 5 Disk DVD/VHS Recorder AM/FM Stereo Home Theater System after it started acting up and not opening the DVD trays (different brand). We have had this new Samsung for a little over a month. This new 2015 model works great, newest technology, 3D / Smart Blu-ray Home system with FM receiver. This up converts DVDs to give a great picture, almost don’t have to spend the extra money to rent a BD disk, if you have a 42â€� TV as we do. It was easy to set-up connection to our home Wi-Fi. Make sure you check for and update the Firmware on the system. We had one update on ours already. The small speakers produce a really great sound for a home system in this price range. The wireless rear speakers are not 100% wireless. You have to plug the rear surround speaker wires into a 110v powered wireless box. Accordingly, if you want those speakers mounted on a wall, as we do, you will see the wires, and be limited to the spacing and placement distance from the 110v powered box. The biggest Dislike I have about this system is that I think Samsung made a design mistake by using Proprietary speaker wire Plugs for connection of the speakers to the main and surround speakers rear unit. They should have used speaker wire spring terminal connectors as they used on all of the speakers â€" Why use half one type connection & half a different type connection? The spring terminal wire connections are very easy to use â€" you have to use them anyway on the speakers! This design totally eliminates the use of heavier gauge better wires (included wires are very thin), unless you cut & splice the included wires! This also restricts the distance you can place the speakers from the main unit (wire size / gauge too small) plus the proprietary plugs on one end. Our rear surround speakers were placed on two sides of an open arch / wall span, so the design eliminates the use of my hidden wires for the rear speakers! According, we can’t place the new ones there now. Overall I feel this is a good system, would recommend, not sorry I purchased, but just be aware of the above speaker wire complaints that I have.

The auto update rendered the system unusable. Sent back for a refund. After update, system turned off, after 3 hours I manually turned on, discovered it corrupted my installed software, could not be reset. if its that sensitive, maybe update the system before you sell it.

Pros

  • Lightweight

Cons

  • bent & kinked wires

Best Uses

    Most default settings were fine, only had to tweek a few personal settings. The hardest part was getting all the bends & kinks out of the speaker wires. Could really tell the difference in sounds and added features were greater than my old set, which was 5 or more years older.

          This is a wonderful system fro those whom still like the abeyance of a system with the beauty of the future. The sound is great and its small enough not to over-crowd even the smallest of spaces. A great find and with all the app and 3D capabilities this is a wonderful HT system I highly recommend it!

                  from Concord, NC, USA

                  Pros

                  • semi wireless rear speakers

                  Cons

                    Best Uses

                      Set up was fairly easy, though the wires into speakers can be finicky, luckily there is a Speaker Test. After Speaker Test, had to reconnect 2 speakers, but thanks to test, I knew which speakers to go to. Rear Speakers Wireless transmitter is great/ Still a lot to learn about the system, but everything appears to be working as it should.

                              Best Uses

                                The sound system is very good and sound great with a little tweaking. It was an easy task to mount the speakers to the wall but this isn't the most ideal method or placement. It would have been better to be able to get them off the wall a little but the only way to hang them is with a keyhole in the back. I have yet to find a bracket that would let me mount them in a better manner without running screws into the casing. A simple threaded attachment point would fix that entire issue. This unit is not top of the line with all the newest media type decoders but the ones it does have are quite good. It is most reasonable for the price and the location that I was placing it into. Good picture quality from the Blu-ray player with a simple HDMI cable of good quality. The ARC is also a help when paired to the TV with the same format. The sound from anything playing on the TV is routed back to the system which has much better sound than the TV speakers.
