"Decent, but certainly not great."2.5 starson by justinblevins
Pros: Good Blu Ray player
Cheap Surround Sound
Cons: Horrible Interface
Static Sound Washes Out
Summary: I bought this HT system because it was well priced and allowed for Blu Ray, Netflix connectivity, and surround sound all in one package. The look of the actual unit is nice and goes well with Samsung TVs however the grilled satellite speakers would look better with a foam or fabric cover. The interface for this unit is horrible and is the biggest gripe I have with this system. iPod and You Tube interfaces are worthless. You are better off running those through the AUX input right off the iPod or a computer. Netflix interface is better, but also not as good as the interface on other devices such as a Wii. You have to go online and add content to your queue before it will show up on the interface. There is no real time search from the unit, it all has to be done online from a computer. The sound on the system is pretty good when watching a Blu Ray, but can wash out at higher volumes. For some reason you can never get the same quality sound from the surround sound as you can from a Blu Ray even when the programming you are watching is rated in HD sound. Overall this system is decent for the price, but if faced with the purchase again I would save some extra money and get a proper receiver and speakers from Onkyo or Dennon and a Blu Ray system with a better on screen interface.
