Another TERRIBLE Samsung product!!!
Comments about Samsung 2.1 Channel Soundbar System with Wireless Subwoofer:
Purchased this sound bar to replace an older sound system and are wishing I never had. To start things off when I turn on my TV and the sound bar it will make alot of crackling noise and swith back to the D.IN mode from HDMI. I then switch it back to HDMI and it will do the same thing again. After that it will stay on HDMI. Sound is Ok but I was expecting alot better considering the price. Subwoofer acts like it hardly even works. Also it only has 1 HDMI input so if you have multiple devices that you want to use, you will need to changed HDMI cords to get them to play through the speakers. Shop around and compare before buying this. It will be worth the time!!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great sound, terrible remote control user experience
from Raleigh, NC, USA
This is a great product. However, the software for this device, and apparently all current samsung tvs and sound bars, was not designed with a user in mind. I'm connecting this new sound bar (hw-f450/za) to a samsung tv (un46c6300). You can EITHER have the sound bar turn on (not off) with your tv remote and not control the volume (anynet disabled and auto power on) OR you can control the volume and not turn on the sound bar when your tv turns on (anynet on and auto power disabled). These results ONLY work with BOTH an optical cable AND an HDMI cable connected, forcing you to have additional cables running between devices. I also have the following setup: tv: un40c6300. sound bar: Hw-c450/xaa and I can turn on and off the sound bar and control the volume with any samsung remote (dvd or tv) and I only have the optical cable connected. I've communicated several times with Samsung support and there is no way to have these two basic functions work from the same remote. I'm not sure why Samsung chose to remove this feature and force users to have multiple remotes and cables in order to use this sound bar with any of their tvs. This is a terrible user experience. I currently own 5 different samsung tvs, all over 40". Each is connected to at least one other samsung device (DVD or sound bar). I have always appreciated the way Samsung devices all worked together seamlessly. I can no longer trust that their products will work together. They are obviously being developed in silos and the teams are not talking to each other. Since this is the case, I will stop recommending Samsung products to my friends and family. I will also stop purchasing their products for my home.
Love the Sound bar
from Granite Falls Minnesota
This is a good thing to buy when you get a new Tv this sound bar really has everything you would want
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Much needed BOOST
This product was a much needed boost to help the regular tv speakers. With tv's getting thinner the sound quality is sub-par just from those internal speakers. This sound bar is just what the doctor ordered and the patient is doing much better now.
Very good Soundbar
Purchased this 2 weeks ago and use with Samsun Smart HD TV. The size and features, though not high end, does sound fantastic. The unit was easy to set up and connect to get system working with the TV. But there are some issues that are minor and easy to get around. The provided remote works great if you use only a TV and sound bar for video and sound. Not so good with a Set Top Box. Does not control the STB for channels. So a 2nd remote is going to be needed. The provided remote is expected to be the master remote with TV function and Volume only. Ok for audio inputs only. The remote is not that functional when using a Digital Cable Box. The Digital input for the fiber connection is very tight, be careful. The Digital output from the TV cannot be controlled via the TV/STB remote. Only the TV connection, via the RF/Bluetooth can be controlled via the TV volume. I use the HDMI connection to the TV and the Anyconnect or the Digital Cable for audio in the Sound bar. This unit has multiple option and Iâ€™m sure one will work in any situation even for the most demanding.

Good value for price
from SD, California
Bought this HW-F450 recently. Good value and used all features and connections so far. Easy setup and awesome sound. One thing to note when using Samsung TV with this in TV mode there is good amount of 30-40s of no sound until BT connection is established. It is very noticeable.
Great product. Great Design i was able to mount on the wall. It was able to be connected very easily. This product was my first home theater purchase and i am extremely satisfied.

from trenton ohio
the sound bar itself is fantastic, although i am dissatisfied with the bass output of the subwoofer
I just purchased this for my Mom's UN55ES6500 and the sound is great. The instruction manual leaves ALOT to be desired....so get yer techie pals to help you get it working. So far very pleased with it's wireless performance.
Excellent, crisp sound quality to complement my entertainment system.
It's a perfect complement to my entertainment system in the living room. Crisp, clear quality with wonderful bass and treble enhancements! Recommend highly for entertainment enthusiasts.
