    I had my soundbar and subwoofer installed with my 50 inch Samsung TV. Easy to use with full 5.1 sound, settings for all of my needs with easy to make tweaks when necessary. I am a little disappointed with the voice clarity. I have used both the Optical connection and the ARC connection and still have to crank up the volume at times in order to clearly make out the voices. Not a deal breaker.

    For a small to medium sized room the sound bar does well. Xbox One X, the Qled Samsung and the sound bar function excellent together. I did add the rear speakers for a more realistic surround. Game mode is excellent. Movies are good and sports are better. It is pretty much automatic with the optical cable connection and the ARC connection cover everything well.

    Samsung - 5.1-Channel Soundbar System

    The Samsung - 5.1-Channel Soundbar System is Great Soundbar. I was interested in very good sound bar and upgraded from a less expensive Samsung sound bar. It took a week or two for the speakers to break in which is normal for any new speakers. After a couple of weeks the sound has been excellent. Not the highest end sound bar. But it is more than I had expected. Highly Recommended.

    This Is My First Sound Bar. I Never Thought A Sound Bar Would Make A Difference. But These Blew My Mind. They Aren't The Top Sound Bars In The Market But They Hold Close. Does Not Have Dolby Atmos, But Does Have 5.1 Sounds. It Echos Around You. Great For Movies & Definitely Great For Gaming. Add The Samsung SWA-8500S Surround Speakers For Enhanced Sounds. You'll Thank Me.

    This sound bar has good sound quality and is a great asset with my living room TV. My wife and I can hear dialogue better now, and the sound fills our 22’ by 15’ room nicely. The sound is not quite as clean as Bose, but it is in my opinion good enough for most people, and it’s sure a lot less expensive! I like how the speaker power goes on and off with our Samsung widescreen 4K TV too.

    I was never a sound bar fan but this one sounds really great. With this sound bar you get that surround sound effect with the 5 channels. You can always buy additional speakers later but with this sound bar I don't think you will need it. I have used this with just movies so far and the bass and treble sound great. This is really a great deal with the sub included. I would definitely recommend this product.

    I was told that this Soundbar can be installed easily with the HDMI 3 of the Sony Tv or by using the optical connection. The optical connection was not available so I "easily" connected the HDMI to HDMI 3 of the TV. This turned out not to be EASY AND INTEAD would not properly operate. This soundbar and advice was very disappointing and was returned to Best Buy.

    Super Clear Sound

    This sound bar is great. There's a clear definition between the high tones and bass. Everything is really clear and crisp at any volume. This was a great value too since you get a lot of the surround sound feel without having to mount and connect any additional speakers. We just plugged in the power on the soundbar and the subwoofer and everything was synced and ready to go.

    I was very impressed with the sound from the Samsung soundbar with bass. The surround sound effect may be limited from the position I have it mounted in. Eventually, I will mount the tv and sound bar on the wall and I believe this will open up the surround sound effect like I heard in the store. Overall, I am impressed with the system and appreciate the separate treble & bass controls.

    Bought this on sale during the holiday season. Wanted to move my TV over the fireplace and get rid of the cable box and just stream TV. Previously had a Receiver and speakers hooked up but this worked better for the situation I was trying to get. Easy set up and links easy to TV so it turns on when the TV turns on and has decent sound quality. So far so good.

    I have been using soundbar for 3 months now, the sound fills the room and panoramic sound makes it feel like you have speakers everywhere. Even better is the sound and picture when using HDMI, definitely gives my 4K a boost whether watching a movie or playing a game, absolutely recommend this soundbar!!

    I have to give this sound bar 4 stars only because of the ocassional hiccups with the unit, sometimes the bass will drop off and then come back it does it when im listening to music in bluetooth or playing a game or watching tv, maybe i have a defective unit. Other than that issue I love the soundbar it sounds great and is very loud and clear with good quality.

    That’s not my first soundbar and I’d like to recommend this product even though I used to buy Sony device. This new generation Samsung 5.1 soundbar really sounds good with my new Samsung 4K TV. Compare to flat sound of TV you can be happy to listen to music, special effects directly from TV or the other sources.

    I have been using the system for about a month now along with my new Samsung 65 inch tv and just love it. I'm glad I chose this sound system to go along with it. Sometimes I catch my wife looking around the room like there is somebody there, but what she is hearing is the speakers behind her, its like being in a mini theatre.

    Easy to set up, easy to use. Probably not the right choice for audiophiles. But I got a nice system for under 1k. Pro tip: to adjust the volume of the sold seperately rear speaker set, hit sound mode until rear speakers appears..then select up or down on the remote "ring" to increase or decrease the volume. Samsung did not have these instructions anywhere on their site. Hope it helps

    Bought this soundbar system to be able to be able to hear the conversation in the programs without turning the rest of the sound up. This unit has a middle speaker to increase clarity during talking. My wife and I now can hear the program and background sounds for a much better listening experience (with out having to constantly change the volume.)

    Price for performance aspect of this sound bar is a 10/10, Yeah its not no crazy Dolby Atmos sound system but for your average home theater setup it gets the job done, side fire speakers make sound bounce off the walls and immerses you in the movies or games you will be playing or watching.

    I chose this soundbar and subwoofer after listening to all the options multiple times at the store. I couldn't be happier. The bass is huge and the sound is great when we're watching a movie or something like that, but easily turned down (or off) for when the rest of the house is sleeping. It's a great sounding system.

    We purchased the 5.1 -Channel System and there was a slight problem with its delivery date, but when it was hooked up and tied into the system we found the wait was well worth it!! The BASE in this unit rattles your innards during the movies and is a wonderful feature to add to just getting a movie or movie rental !!

    I bought this pre-black Friday sale and I was so glad I did. I never had a soundbar, so I was skeptical. This little unit fits nicely in my tv area and the sound is definitely a mind blowing experience. I actually had to lower the volume to a minimum. The BT option was great for pairing with my IPAD and Galaxy phone, so now I can enjoy my music.
