Really Good Product

DGRoot 3/13/2019

It does all of the necessary functions of a dvd / bluray / hometheater with more great sound and additional features. However, it is missing few perks such as wireless speaker and wifi connectivity (there is an Ethernet cable)

Powerful punch in a small package

Tony Dino 7/15/2018

Keep in mind, this is a wired system. The only wireless aspect of this product is bluetooth. Had this for a month and am still blown away. The sound is amazing and the picture crisp and clear. Even upscales regular DVDs to near HD quality, remarkable. Highly versatile system especially with a Samsung smart tv. Enough features and options to keep most technophiles pleased. This is only getting bad reviews from people who don't read the owner's manual, a must for features like bluetooth and the radio. You will only hear the rear surround speakers when playing supported content, like movies. The only thing I can't review is 3D playback as I don't have a 3D tv but I'm sure it works great.

Disappointing

JoeLahoe 3/26/2018

The unit does not come with an HDMI cord to connect to the TV I ordered it with. On top of that, I was under the assumption to 2 rear speakers were wireless satellite speakers. Instead, they do have wires and so I can't safely or easily put them in optimal locations in the rear of the room so I have 5 speakers sitting in the front of the TV room.

Mixed Reviews

Mama4wheels 2/5/2017

We have had problems beginning with set-up. Had a hard time getting speakers to work. The wires were too thin to make a good connection. Had to double the wires over for the speakers to work. Connecting the unit wasn't too bad. Has pretty good sound. Didn't test out the DVD player for awhile since we have so many movie stations with Charter. When we finally watched a movie it worked okay. But, when we wanted to go back to watching our cable TV we couldn't switch back over. We could switch the mode but there was no picture on the TV. It said there was no digital optical cable (which there is). Anytime I change the mode it will not recognize the cable box / TV when I switch it back to watch my TV. I have to unplug and replug the HDMI cords, switch to different HDMI outputs on my TV until everything finally works again. Then next time I do something besides watching cable I have to go through the same process to get it back to the TV mode. The most recent problem I have is with the sound going out for a second or two while watching TV. It comes back on right away but does this frequently. A couple of times we had no sound at all. Had to turn the surround system off and just use the speakers on the TV. This is the most irritating problem! I have tried to find some sort of troubleshooting but there is nothing on the website or in the book to cover this issue. I would have preferred it being wireless but at least my smart TV is so that isn't a big issue. I will probably box the whole thing back up and return it to Best Buy!!!!!

A Great Addition to our Samsung Television

MonitorGuy 12/19/2016

This entertainment system provides the sound we wanted when watching a movie or TV show. The addition of the Blu-Ray player is a plus. I would recommend this system to anyone looking for added audio support.

SOUND ISSUE

MyCupCake 10/19/2016

This product is great in terms of vision and features... However, there are so many sound issues... First, when watching anything other than the DVD or Bluray, the sound is not coming out of surround speakers.

Tvastic 4/23/2016

Excellent home theater system and very easy to set up. The unit sounds awesome and I love the arc feature the best. I use my home theater for all my TV watching. Also this system is an excellent value and has Bluetooth as well. A perfect compliment to your Samsung TV.

So Easy My Mom Can Use It

Badasswarrior 3/31/2016

I needed a system to help my hard of hearing mother so she could watch TV. Someone suggested this system. At first I was concerned it would be to difficult for her to work, but she picked it up faster then she did her cell phone! She loves being able to now hear her shows. I love the blue tooth feature, now I can listen to my music on my phone loud and clear when cleaning.

Too good to be true

Starmary73 3/30/2016

I bought this with high hopes to be compatible with My new Samsung 55" TV and I was really disappointed in it. The sound from the sub was terrible the internet needed direct connection. We always watched basic DVDs and the first time we tried to watch a blueray bam! It starts shutting down saying protection after troubleshooting and doing all I could it has to remain on at all times to even have the sound for TV if you shut it off it goes back to shutting off every time you turn on. I read online this was a widespread defect and its related to a bad capacitor this was 6 days over a year and I am stuck with it. A lot of money wasted very disappointed....had high hopes with it being a Samsung product....

eakosch1 3/22/2016

I have come to trust Samsung through phones, laptops and smart TV's. When I was in need of a new surround system I gave them the nod. It is full featured, has excellent sound quality and booming bass. The equipment is surprisingly small and fits nice into any décor. I have had this system for about 2 months and use it constantly. Especially nice is its communication ability with my Samsung 55in smart tv. Love it!

Hawkeye197033 3/10/2016

Great product except for one problem. There is a power saver mode that turns off the power randomly. It says that there is a screen saver that comes on before, but mine just turns off. I use mine as a surround sound for my tv mostly, and it seems to always turn off during a good part of a show. I looked in the manual and on the website for a way to turn off the power saving mode but there is no information to be found.

Easy to setup and connect to my flat screen TV. With the ARC connection the stereo sound was a simple and enjoyable feature that completes my living room TV stereo system. Can't complain one bit, I'd recommend this system in a heart beat to anyone that asks me if it was worth the money. Heck yeah!

RBRBRB 3/27/2015

I hate to give bad reviews on anything, but this unit stopped working after less than a week. It goes into "Protection" mode very shortly after powering it on. What is disturbing is that I cannot find anything about this in the user manual. It's going back to where I purchased it from. This is my first home theater system and I trusted the Samsung name. What a let down.
