I purchased this unit during the 2015 holiday season because of its price at a big-box retailer. I have been debating a soundbar for quite some time and had not yet decided if it was a necessity. I was wrong. The installation of the unit was quick and simple. The included directions are helpful. The sound is great and does not become distorted with an increase in volume. I love the ability to connect via BT, Optical and even USB. The bar provides a premium sound experience without taking up significant space on my entertainment center. I could have mounted it with the INCLUDED hardware, but opted to rest on my entertainment center for easy portability if I ever need to move it again. The only grip I have is the length of the cord and the way the power adapter connects to the bar. I don't have a lot of wiggle room with cord length, especially the included Optical Cable. Aside from this, the product still receives a 5-star rating. Finally, I LOVE the ability to connect to and control the volume, input, etc. from my smartphone! The Samsung Audio app makes management a breeze, especially when the remote becomes misplaced. Additionally, the auto-on/off function is ridiculously convenient! One note - If you've never worked with Optical Cables before, MAKE SURE TO REMOVE THE CLEAR PLASTIC CAP FROM THE END. Failure to do this will either leave you dumbfounded as to why the cord doesn't fit into your TV/Soundbar, or will potentially damage the unit(s).

I bought this as a mother's day gift after my mother's surround sound receiver recently broke. We never owned a soundbar before. I set this up with her living room TV which is an LG HDTV 46" LED 1080p set. I was also optimistic as this soundbar has many positive reviews attached. I have to say, after using this for a few days, we were both appalled at how terrible the sound is. Is this better than the stock speakers of a TV? Yes. But is the sound quality good? No. This soundbar sounds awful. It doesn't have good dynamics, the surround option is terrible, and even for being a stereo item, it doesn't even sound good in stereo. The customizable sound options for modes such as drama and cinema sound bland. Customizing the EQ doesn't make much of an improvement. Overall, it just has a very "bland" sound to it. Movies and regular TV alike, myself no my mother really liked the sound out of this soundbar. My even bigger complaint is the subwoofer. The subwoofer is embarrassingly bad. Even on the max volume setting, it's barely audible. We picked up a second soundbar in a local retailer (the same model from Samsung) and it sounded equally as bad, both the soundbar itself and the subwoofer. Overall I was very disappointed with this soundbar, especially for being a Samsung product. I would only recommend this product for something like a guest room. I would not recommend this as a 24/7 soundbar for a main room or TV you watch all the time. The sound is just too awful. I like the display on it, it doesn't buzz, vibrate, and it doesn't weigh a lot. But ultimately, I bought this out of a need for a second audio setup in my mother's home's living room. We were both disappointed. My advice to anyone reading this; If you want truly good sound, I would go with an old fashioned, 5.1 surround sound setup with actual speakers mounted around the room. If you can make due with a receiver and speaker mounting, they absolutely blow away soundbars. I give that recommendation being someone that works in audio professionally. Even a higher end model, you will never truly replicate a cinema sound out of these. I love Samsung, I love my Galaxy S7 Edge phone, I also own their Level U headphones, which I really like. But this soundbar, it's stinker.

      I needed to replace a soundbar that "gave up the ghost". I already owned a Samsung HD so I wanted to do research on a Samsung. This one satisfied my needs. The Bluetooth let me play the music files from my S5 phone. The addition of the Samsung Audio Remote app was a nice touch. The USB was good as I still have several drives with music files. The remote has raised symbols for easy use. The unit had a very nice price that I didn't need to look any place else. The sound was better than I had anticipated. When I used the phone to play my music files the tone was good. I don't like a lot of bass. As a former drummer I had my share of bassists that could cave your chest from their amps.

                      I've had the sound bar for a few days now and it's been awesome. Installation was simple and straight forward and only took a few minutes to synch it with my samsung TV. At first I didn't think I'd want the subwoofer but I'm glad I got it because it made a huge difference. Just in time for Super Bowl weekend next week :)

                                      The design is sleek though it's not very exquisitely beautiful. It is a bit limited for this product to interface with our non-Samsung TV since there's only AUX port and the audio output power signal is rather low (not amplified), so we need to increase the volume when interfacing with the TV. On the other hand, the bluetooth interface is really nice and handy for me to play music directly from my smartphone using Spotify. Overall, this product is a really good value for money as it offers mid quality for its sound.

                                      Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
                                      Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
                                      Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
                                      What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?

                                      How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
                                      Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
                                      Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
                                      Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
                                      Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
