Was using basic tv speakers on our 65" Samsung and when we got the speaker and sub it was like the light turned on, like going from black and white tv to color. Words can barely discribe the level of clarity. It's as if new life was brought tour not so old tv. I now have new meaning in life, I walk with a smile, I like to come home after work, I say hi to my family and kiss the dog now. This has changed my life....for the good...get one

Good value and sound
Posted by: Winks from: on
I bought this Samsung soundbar to upgrade the sound from my Samsung 4k hdtv. I ran into several typical problems while setting it up. I had the bar facing the wrong way, so I thought it wouldn't turn on. Once I got the Samsung logo facing up, I could see the lite display and could proceed to sync the Subwoofer to the main unit. Then I thought the optical cable wouldn't connect to either the tv or sound bar. After calling 1-800-SAMSUNG, whose agent was very kind and helpful by the way, I found out that I had to take off the tiny clear plastic cap covering from each end of the optical cable connectors. This did the trick! And WOW, after I got it all set up right, I had beautiful rich sound coming from the tv (or sound bar and subwoofer) and was able to control the volume to go way up, past tolerable. What an improvement, since I could barely hear the tv without it. I bought an open box while the item was on sale for greater savings, so I'm very pleased about that. And I know there are a lot more expensive and fancier soundbars out there, but this one is beyond good. I would easily recommend it to anyone shopping for a sound bar.

Ultimately a good product
Posted by: Carlos from: on
1. If you are using the supplied Digital Optical cord
MAKE SURE TO
take off the little tear drop looking protectors.
I thoght they were part of the cable
until I researched why it wouldn't fit firmly in the ports.
2. You have the sounbar placed correctly
if the Samsung name is ON TOP
not facing forward.
3. The sepeate bass unit is working properly
but you will only notice it when progaming that takes advantage of it
is being played.
4. The sound settings Music, Movies, Sports make a big difference.
Make sure you have it set properly for the program you are watching.
Overall this sound bar is worth the money
and will teach you some things
that you may need to know
if you decide to buy an expensive one one day
I would recommend it for a friend
but not my friend's parents

I was pleasantly surprised by the sound of this soundbar. I was looking into Bose and Sonos, and to be honest, the other two have more "brand" appeal to me ( they might sound better too) BUT, do they sound 5 or 6 times better to justify the price difference? I don't think so. They are a step above, but they are not 5 or 6 times better than the Samsung. I'm very happy with this product.

I was looking for a soundbar to replace my old 12 year old speakers that finally bit the dust. This combination works very well in a two bed room apartment and is able to fill the living room with theater quality sound. When watching Star Wars it sounds like it did in the theaters. This sound bar is excellent, no static or interference from other devices (there is an xbox, laptop, fire stick, router, tablet, and multiple phones on the same entertainment system), and has great sound at all volumes. The only negative it has is it seems to echo with my TV. I have tried adjusting the latency but this did not help. It is no big deal to me because this sounds much better than my TV speakers so I just turn off the TV speakers. Love this sound bar and would recommend it to anyone. The only speakers that sounded better in my opinion are the $600 Bose, but these speakers rivaled all others in the Best Buy store that I shopped at. Definitely give these a chance if you are looking for an upgrade.

Simple & sleek with great sound
Posted by: GRez07 from: Chicago, IL on
First off, this item is visually very sleek and elegant so it doesn't draw too much attention or look obnoxious if being placed in a highly visible spot in a nice room. If you have a good hiding spot for the subwoofer (being wireless totally helps) then this product surprises guests with terrific sound performance while keeping your room classy and clean.
The product outputs terrific sound across many different genres of TV/movies and also bluetooth audio. I purchased a product in this price point because the total watts per sales price (roughly 300 watts for $200) was significantly better than the cheaper models (130W, $170) and more expensive models (340W, $330). It really is the better deal out there and has more than enough high-performance... I've still been too scared to crank it up near full volume (although I guess I don't even know what number that is). Oh and it's super simple and easy to setup and operate so anyone would be comfortable doing all this.
I would definitely buy this product and have already recommended it to a couple friends who are interested in getting a sound bar and/or were just that impressed when experiencing mine for the first time.

Suprinsingly and incredibly good
Posted by: Lulunto from: on
First of all, I am an audioholic and I have this sound bar in my bedroom, in my living room I have a $1500 Bose Soundtouch 130, don't fool yourself telling the these two sound similar, overall sound in Bose is much better, louder and clearer, so please do not read reviews comparing these two, just focus on the specs of this system. That being said, this Samsung soundbar is INCREDIBLY GOOD! It is LOUD and it will make your experience x100 times better than your regular TV speakers. It substantially surpassed my expectations for the cost. Sound is overall great and neat, but please don't compare it to a superior system as Bose, as these are in a different league(it's like comparing a Ferrari with a BMW). It is highly recommended system as it has an entry level cost and a high quality sound.

A lot of "bang" for your buck
Posted by: Jasmine from: on
Initially I was pretty skeptical about the price but lordy this little thing is awesome! I would've rated it a 5, but I must say the optic cord that was included had me perplexed for a minute. They could've left a little note to say you have to take the clear covering off of it for it to work properly. So just a heads up for anyone who was as confused as me. Thankfully it supports hdmi ports as well, which allows you to control the volume via your tv remote (great option), Other than that it's a great speaker and it's worth the buy :)

Good sound but poor Bluetooth range
Posted by: Ideaman from: on
The sound was fantastic but the Bluetooth range was less than 6 feet which means you can't really use it with a phone. Was pondering about returning it when it completely stopped working after 3 weeks anyway. So the decision to return it was made for me. Thankful that BB stands behind products and let me exchange it for a nice Sony system which has enough Bluetooth range for my entire condo

Great upgrade to sound for LED TV's
Posted by: Deekar from: on
I can't believe I waited six months before I upgraded the sound on my Samsung Smart 46" LED TV. What a difference! This mid-level sound bar delivers far better sound than the built-in TV speakers, and really fills the room for sporting events as well as delivers very good (maybe not excellent, but very good) sound for music. If you're a Samsung TV owner like myself, and you have the IR blaster that came with your Samsung TV, this little baby is easy to set up and volume can then be controlled with your TVs remote (in addition to the sound bar remote) by using the IR blaster and entering in the model number (actually last years similar model came up except with a J instead of the K) in the universal remote set up menu. That was a relief to me, as I am not a fan of juggling multiple remotes.
