"Appropriate price for what you're getting"5.0 starson by jagd32
Pros: Three HDMI inputs and a host of other inputs. Subwoofer hits decently hard for its size, and doesn't overpower the soundbar. The soundbar itself sounds good for its size (32" across). A plethora of options to tweak everything!
Cons: None. It's a $300 out-of-the-box home theater, so don't expect it to sound like a $1000, 7.1 HTIB system, because it just won't happen.
Summary: I'm not an audiophile, but I did my research before getting this soundbar, and I was pleased after having bought it as it meets my needs and expectations. Those that complain about this product didn't research it enough before investing in it and, therefore, had unreal expectations, which in turn led to disappointment and disillusionment with the product. Some of the key facts to know about this soundbar are 1) the sensor is on the subwoofer, 2) the subwoofer has all of the jacks on it, and the soundbar has none (except for audio hook-ups to the SW), 3) the SW has 3 HDMI inputs (and the Samsung soundbars have none!) , 4) the audio menu isn't intuitive to the point where you can sit down and figure all of it out, however, there are many options that can be tweaked. It took me maybe 30 minutes at most of reading through the manual before I'd finished tweaking the various options (ie - the bass, treble, center channel level, SW level, etc.) as I wanted them. If you don't like to read a manual then you'll likely have little trouble setting it up, because it works great right out of the box, but you'll probably miss out on a multitude of options that could enhance your listening experience. Overall, I am supremely content with the sound, as it is a vast improvement over the cruddy speakers on my 42" LCD.
