    Upgrade to an already great product

    This is a newer version of another Samsung home theater system we have. The older system is still working fine as it always has. It is now being used in a different space. We purchased the newer unit because it has better "smart" features, i.e. we no longer have to que Netflix shows from a computer in order to watch them via the Samsung system. (For those of you who may not remember the earlier days of Netflix digital content and many smart devices, you used to have to log in to Netflix via a computer and add shows to your Netflix que in order to watch them on connected devices. It adds an additional step and, by today's standards, is quite cumbersome.) This newer unit has modern smart functionality and works great! We are using this set in the master bedroom where running speaker cable for the rear channel speakers would be nearly impossible. This home theater system, (as did our older system), utilizes wireless rear channel speakers. The rear channel speakers plug into a relatively small receiver, (comes with the system), that is easily concealed. Everything you need for a great sounding system is in the box and is very easy to set up. In case you were wondering about the space where it is installed... The master bedroom is quite large... Probably 250 square feet. The overall home is 6900 square feet. This Samsung home theater system produces plenty of sound for the space. I'm sure we will never use it at full power.

    I have tried many products here recently. Vizio 5.1 S5451W-C2, Nakamichi NK12, RCA and other Samsung brand sound bars. This HTIB i will not complain too much and will say i would like to try out the Sony bdvn7200w but an satisfied with this model of samsung 5.1 surround sound. I had originally the 7.1 HT-E6730W and loved it Flaws and all. The saying goes if it's not broke don't fix it.....yep i should have listened. Ha ha. sold it at a good price thinking i would upgrade. I paid a good price for this and it was brand new I will say the it's not as premium looking as i would like, however its performance thus far is great. Cons: 1.I would like to see a more quality build and subwoofer in the future samsung. 2. Stronger bluetooth range 3. I would like to see louder and better quality surround speakers attached to surround transmitter. Although they are good. 4. Good remote, could be better 5. Could have more hdmi connections PROS: 1. although not as as aesthetically premium looking as i like, it's performance has been astoundingly fast and precise. No issues other than bluetooth not allowing me to move all around the house. 2. model supports best ways to connect (Hdmi arc) digital optical, audio video 3. Great speakers for a htib They dont look like much, but wow and for a 1000 watt they get loud and stay clear. 4. Music sounds great and this has a few presets and options to tweak the bass and equilizer. Movies and dvds look great and my games sound very nice. 5. Great entry level blue ray player and surround sound. i have no regrets at 197.00

    Very nice surround system

    This had everything I wanted! First of all, to address other people's concerns about HDMI ARC with Vizio, yes it DOES work. HDMI ARC allows both directional connection using one cable. No optical or low grade RCA cables need. You must go the TV settings and turn on CEC. This will allow the Vizio to discover connected devices via HDMI. It will allow you to use the Vizio to control the Samsung and vice versa. Other TV brands may be similar. Then you can get surround sound from over the air TV! If you experience any audio/video sync issues, Vizio and the Samsung allow you to adjust for this. Those who want a 2 channel music stream to play on rear speakers, your expectation is flawed. The rear speakers are only for the extra surround sound channels if such a source is used. FM radio, Bluetooth audio, music CDs are two channels. Not 6. Blu ray player and Amazon Prime Video and other streaming services work great. Yes Amazon has many titles in HD and 5.1 sound. Love streaming movies and TV shows in surround! FM radio and Bluetooth work great for music. Having no wires running across the living room is great. The wireless receiver is connected to the rear speakers by normal speaker wire. My only complaint is about the buttons on the front of the device. I wish they were backlit. It is very hard to see what you're doing in low light.

    Fantastic sound system, feels like I'm at a concert or movie theater, that is the experience this home theater delivers. Enhances the quality of whatever you are watching or listening to!! Should have bought it sooner. Easy to use and more features then I expected. You can get a complete big-screen experience from the breathtaking picture to the booming audio, out of the movie theater and into your living room. This home theater system, surround speakers, and a subwoofer creates a complete surround sound experience that's easy to get lost in. And the 3D Blu-ray player pairs the audio with crisp visuals that leap right off the TV. You can also use non blu Ray DVDs and with the built-in Wi-Fi, the options are endless! Watch YouTube, stream music with Internet radio, chat with friends on Facebook and Twitter, right from your TV, not to mention all the interactive Samsung apps. Do I sound excited about this home theater system, yes I am and so is my family! Complete entertainment package!!! .Best purchase I made this year!

    I bought this system and a Samsung 48" T.V. at the same time. I was told I did not need to buy a Smart T.V. as the home system was Smart. Once home and all hooked up, I kept getting an error window saying "Not Available" whenever I tried to adjust the volume or do almost any function. Even trying to enter in info like email and passwords for Amazon took forever because after each letter was entered, had to wait for the error message to go away. After 3 weeks or repeated phone calls to Samsung plus a tech coming out for Samsung, Best Buy stepped in and helped us out. I took the remote for the home theater into Best Buy and when I pointed it at a Smart T.V., no error message! Pointing it at a regular/dumb T.V. on the Best Buy wall, resulted in the error message! Once I returned the regular T.V. and got a Smart T.V., there was no longer the communication problem between the two units and all is well. Kudos to Best Buy, boos to Samsung customer service for insisting nothing was wrong and had no idea why we would be getting the error message.

    Samsung - 5 Series 1000W 5.1-Ch. 3D / Smart Blu-ray Home Theater System - Black is excellent product for a home theater because it gives you the best quality sound, especially the mid-range when watching movies, at a very low cost. Thought, it does not have all the adjustments of the sound that you get from the mid-high levels home theater, the built-in settings are in good quality. Also, you don’t need to run wire for the two rear speakers. The only draw back is you have to run multiple number of HDMI from the TV, if it is mounted, to other devices like PS3, cable box, or XBOX. Despite this, I still recommend this for people who don’t want to spend money on home theater.

    Great DVD player & TV home theater system

    Needed to replace our previous DVD/home theater system after having it for 7 years. Liked the all-in-one package, and was intrigued with the added WiFi feature. Easy to install as it was very similar to what we had. Our TV is NOT WiFi ready, but with this new WiFi DVD system, it is- and it was easy to set up the connection! Sound is much better than the TV sound- probably not as high end as other TV home theater systems out there, but it is more than fine for us --- a great value for a DVD + Home theater sound system. Ordered it all on line while chatting with a Best Buy representative, and he arranged for a store pick-up. Transaction and Store pick-up could not have been easier!

    5 star all the way with this surround sound system, offers plenty features like Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and YouTube. Plenty more when you get this system connected to your LED or LCD flatscreen television. The sound is phenomenal 1000 watts sounds like your inside a movie theatre, but your inside the comfort of your own home. Surround sound is not only for movies but watching cable television as well once you learn all the functions this systems has to offer. This system is used for a bedroom but I am sure it can be used throughout any room in a apartment or home. Only had this system turned up to minimal sound the bass from the subwoofer is awesome. Years of enjoyment with this system, Samsung in my opinion makes some of the best electronics on this planet.

    I can crank it up in the house with volume left to go and still here my music blaring in every room while I am cleaning. The surround sound is awesome while watching movies and the wireless rear speaker unit has worked flawlessly. Just so you know though the rear speakers are actually wired to the wireless unit it really just eliminates the cord from the rear speakers to the blu-ray player. I have had only good experiences with these style of units and the one I am replacing was a regent dvd player from 2001 and the disc stopped reading.

    I have several small bluetooth compatible speakers around the house so that was not a "must-have" when buying the system, but now that I have it I rarely use my other speakers. I love that I am able to wake up this system without the remote to play music from my iPhone (when I connect via bluetooth settings from my phone the sound system turns on). The installation was super easy and I have the rear speakers placed on a cabinet behind my couch (line of sight is not necessary for the rear speaker to connect with the main unit). And the sound quality (most importantly) is AWESOME. I'm glad I spend a little extra and didn't settle with a sound bar.

    I used to have an old Sony HTIB (home theatre in box). But it broke and I needed a new one. I tried the Samsung with Wireless rear speakers and the sound quality was awful. I then purchased this Yamaha system open box, $100 off. It was missing the remote and YAPAO device, but I was able to find both of those on Amazon so I still saved. And this unit is awesome! The sound quality is really good in my opinion for a HTIB and the base is great too! I'm very satisfied with this purchase and glad I went Yamaha. I didn't want to spend more for a custom system and I feel this is the best otherwise.

    My mom and I got this for my step-dad as a father's day gift and an anniversary gift. He loves it because he's able to listen to his basketball, baseball, and ESPN channel on surround sound. Even though ESPN was on the TV at random hours of the day, now it's on ALL the time and my mom and I put up with it since it makes him happy. It works great as a Blu-Ray player as well and the sound of Disney's Frozen coming out with my niece and nephew really sounds great. The radio is ok, we don't use it often, but when we do use it, so far it hasn't given us any problems and sounds clear instead of searching for a signal.

    Easy set up, speakers are smaller than older versions, and sounds great! I was a little nervous about reviews that said sound quality wasn't great and wireless satellite speakers didn't work consistently. I haven't had any problems with the satellite speakers and there's plenty of quality sound and volume for my 700 sq. ft. basement. I took a chance on an open box item shipped direct from the store, and was very pleased and surprised to find all of the components sealed in their original packaging. If the box wasn't re-taped closed, you would never know it was opened.

    For a system with small speakers this system has a large sound. The last time I bought something with comparable size speakers was fifteen or twenty years ago and you could count on them having a real tinny sound. not so with these, they have a full bass sound even if the subwoofer isn't operating. The only issue I had was the input jacks, my tv only uses a 3.5 jack while the receiver on this system uses RCA, Digital and Bluetooth so I had to buy another cable. At least all the inputs function separately so I could hook up multiple devices including my desktop. Also can't get HDMI sound input from tv to be reliable.

    I had a old Surround System that I sold. I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon & get a sound bar with a subwoofer. I tried to like it but it just couldn't give me that Surround sound I had been use to. I took the sound bar back & got this Samsung Surround system as a open box at a nice discount. I hooked everthig up to my new Samsung 65" tv & turned everything on & to my great surprise it all synced together on its own. Even the remotes synced up. I'm very very happy with this system. The sound is awesome & better than I was expecting. I highly recommend this system. The bluray DVD is great also.

    This is a wonderful product! Samsung never disappoints! I looked at a few other options, however, opted to pay a lil more and go with this system because it is wireless. It's wonderful to watch NetFlix without having a wired connection! The apps you can get for this (Netflix, Pandora, etc) and the ability to connect wireless to the internet are huge! The sound quality is amazing! Again - Samsung never disappoints! There are many sound systems out there - I say spend a lil more and get this one that's wireless, it's so worth it!

    I bought the 1000 watt set because I had an older model of 500 watt that the rear speakers went out in and it got to the point it would no longer connect to the Samsung TV. Long story short I contacted Samsung support and told me it was junk at that point. While it worked i loved it so i decided to go with the upgraded model and i wasnt disappointed. The Samsung name to me holds great quality value. It packs a good base and my favorite feature it being able to universal control both the tv and theater system at the same time with one remote.

    This is my Second unit. I bought one for my home, and bought the second one for my apartment in a different city. I was really looking at not purchasing this in the beginning, but with all the good reviews I give it a shot. This device has proven itself to be worthy for the money. It's super loud, and with Bluetooth, radio, and screen monitor, you can't go wrong. It's sounds amazing!! I have a Bose system too, and this is almost just as good, but half the price. I just wish it had an hdmi input, to plug in my xfinity cable box. I would definitely recommend this product.

    I replaced an older Samsung unit (No Blue ray) with this one and have been very. pleased. Installation was straight forward and it tool longer to put up the shelf bracket than to install the entire system.. The WiFi (Which the old system didn't have) connected first try and I particularly liked the wireless rear speakers. I had to spend an additional $80 for a Rocketfish Rear Speaker adapter. This is basically the same rear speaker style unit, it's just included in the package. An additional Plus, By being patient I was able to catch the $50 off sale.

    I use every feature of this system. The speakers are amazing. The apps on it work flawlessly - Netflix, HuluPlus, Amazon Prime, YouTube. I can control YouTube via my iPhone, it has a Bluetooth feature and let's me play my music off my iPhone through its speakers. It plays CDs, DVDs, and bluray without a problem. The quality is 100%. I do have an HD, 3D, smart tv, with high speed broadband hooked into the TV. This system compliments my tv and makes it run even better. I'm perfectly happy with it!!!
