    Was in offer same day I bought the NU8000 TV. Sound quality is pretty good. I was expecting better Sync with the Samsung TV, but found that several times had to change mode in order for the TV detect the SoundBar, several times just lost Sync using Optical Cable, finally I starting using the Bluetooth on it and seems to be working better.

    Great sound. Easy to set up. Sometimes it doesn't sync immediately with tv when we turn tv on.

    I bought this along with the Samsung Wireless Rear Loud Speakers to get a nice surround sound in the living room. Though I am by far not an audiophile, I can say it's a step up from my old Bose 3-2-1 stereo. At least I don't need a receiver to operate because it connects directly to the television. Also, it looks sleek sitting underneath your tv; mine is a 75" so it slides perfectly underneath between the stands. Too bad the Samsung logo is facing upwards on the speaker where you cannot see it unless you hang it on the wall. But let's skip the ultra petty issues and get to the need-to-know stuff and opinions. Just note that you have to set your equalizer via the device so for those who are not tech savvy, don't think that the speakers have low sound quality. The soundbar itself has a very simplistic equalizer consisting of a Treble, Bass, and Audio Sync. Treble and bass have a setting ranging from -6 to +6 adjustment. It is not as in-depth as some consumers may expect, but as I mentioned earlier, you will have to make adjustments via the connected device itself to get that sound quality you're looking for. Some consumers previously mentioned that the bass is not all that powerful, which I do agree because I had to turn it up to +6 while leaving the Treble at roughly between 0 to +2. For what it's worth, I'd say it has a good sound quality and is a easy set up connecting your blue tooth devices from your phone, laptop, tv... heck even your smartwatch. In short, this soundbar can be wireless if you want to avoid wire clutter in the back. I have my PS4 connected directly to the soundbar so it enables me on the gaming console to have the Dolby sound. On that note, there is a "Game Mode" the speaker has, but honestly, I didn't hear much of a difference (again- not an audiophile by a mile marker). Therefore, I'd prefer to leave it on standard mode if I had never bought the rear speakers. The biggest negative thing I am experiencing is that it sometimes powers itself on and connect when I turn on a paired device. I'd have the soundbar off and it will turn itself on to connect with a device that is already on like a ghost powered my soundbar. Another incident is if I am watching TV with the soundbar on and I may turn on any paired device, it will divert to it, cutting off my sound from the tv. That can be very annoying. The remote is identical to the Samsung 4K UHD television with different functions. IE: Where the volume/channel buttons are on the tv remote, the subwoofer/volume button is in their place and their buttons are black instead of silver. It can be a bit confusing, but thankfully the buttons for this remote are black instead of silver. If you're playing a song for example on your tablet or computer, you can actually control the forward/pause/backward function with the remote. In addition, you don't have to be in the same room or aim the remote at the soundbar for it to function. I am not sure of its range, but I can assume that if you're living in a place ranging from a studio to a medium-sized house, you can be -just- about anywhere to operate it. To summarize, it's a decent soundbar, but don't expect that movie theater sound quality that you're hoping to pay for. It has a very simple set-up and equalizer for anybody to adjust. Pairing is very, very easy as it has a pairing button to search for your bluetooth device. However, be aware that your soundbar MAY connect itself to your device automatically while listening to something else. Or it may turn itself on when it was supposed to be off. Regardless of this issue, your remote can function as a media remote, especially if you want to skip, pause, or replay a song. Seeing the other soundbars listed here, I assume that this is a medium quality speaker
