Summary: The Samsung HT-D6500W is easily one of the best Home Theater In a Box sound systems you're likely to find. The sound from the speakers is incredibly clear and the subwoofer provides plenty of bass for action soundtracks. The HD sound really does make the difference. Pop in Saving Private Ryan and just listen to the opening sequence at Omaha Beach and you'll realize what I'm talking about.
As for the Wireless Rear Speakers, there is absolutely no lag and the sound coming out of them sounds excellent. The wireless receiver hub is about the size of a Hardcover book, so the only problem you may face is finding a place for it in the back of the room. But don't worry, the wires are long enough so that you can put the receiver hub on either side of the room.
I don't have a 3d TV, so I can't speak for the 3d aspect, but as far as 2d goes, everything I've been watching has looked incredibly clear and the loading times have been pretty short.
Setup was pretty painless. All of the speakers are color-coded, so you just have to match up the colors on the wires to the back of the system. As far as sound calibration (frequency, db level, audio lag, etc), the included microphone (which plugs into the front) eliminates the need for trial and error.
The built in Wi-Fi is great and the number of apps that Samsung offers is pretty extensive. I also like the Netflix button on the remote that takes you directly to the Netflix app, which ran smoothly and also had good sound. FYI, not everything on Netflix is offered in 5.1 surround sound. Depending on what you watch, you may only hear sound from the front speakers, but this only means that whatever you're watching may just be in stereo and not 5.1.
For about $470, this should be a no-brainer. The HD sound is fantastic and the system works great.
*Advice, if you're will buy this Home Theater System, I suggest you have to check for best deal before you decide at: Hometheateroffers.wordpress.com/samsung-htd6500w/
I highly recommend this system to anyone who wants to upgrade to HD sound.
