    Product makes viewing experience come alive

    Comments about Samsung 5.1 Blu-ray Home Theater System:

    Bought this sound system to go with a non-smart television. The system compliments the television with its built in smart features and provides an excellent crisp sound that fills my large living room. It also has the wireless rear speakers that I was able to use with existing rear speakers that were installed in the new home I purchased and it powers them up and works great.

          Comments about Samsung 5.1 Blu-ray Home Theater System:

          From day one I have had nothing but problems with this piece of garbage. First the surround sound doesnt always work, you have to hit the volume buttons a certain amount of times then it works and hit it on extra time then only the front speakers work. It shuts off by itself for no reason and yes it is well ventilated. You have to reprogram it like every month cause it forgets it settings and now lately only certain speakers work and you have to power it off a few times to get it all working again.

              I've wanted the Home Theater System since they started evolving and I started with this "surround sound system" with the new 3-D Blu-Ray DVD player. I just bought my first 3-D movie and it is awesome. I'm still in the process of setting it up, tweeking it here and there but it's pretty cool.

                i love this unit but, it should have been easiey to operate the features, like adjust the volume of each indivual speaker and make your own settings, display is too small otherwise its a good unit.

                I have been wanting a system with wireless rear speakers. I didn't want to go through the trouble of getting under house and running wire. This system sounds great.

                    I bought this Samsung home theater a month back, I have been so fond of this home theater that started renting a blu-Ray everyday to watch movie on this home theater system. The sound quality is so crisp, and the best part is the wireless rear speakers. The rear speakers work the same way as the front-center wired speakers. Home theater with blu Ray player on this price more than worth buying.

                      Comments about Samsung 5.1 Blu-ray Home Theater System:

                      I am very impressed with my new Samsung 5500 Blu-ray system. Overall, it is packed with features, it sounds great and the picture quality is awesome. I researched for 3 months before I finally pick this one and I am a firm believer that I picked the right one! I only have one issue. I also bought it because it can go online and stream Netflix. But it has this Opera Tv app feature that has absolutely the worse selection of apps. The only one I use from the selections is the Accuweather app. And that's it! If it was up to me, the system would be able to use any app thats available online, free or otherwise. It would have a easy way to search the Internet for them and would save them within the system. Otherwise, it is one great system!
