      I was excited to setup the sound bar on my fireplace mantel below my new Samsung TV. The sound bar was simple to setup, it had a direct digital in that I have my Apple TV plugged directly into and my Play Station 3 makes use of the HDMI in/out to send the audio to the sound bar and the picture to the TV. This was a great work-around since my Samsung TV only has 2 HDMI inputs. The remote control also can function as a remote for both the sound bar & the Samsung TV which I found very useful. The sound bar automatically detects the subwoofer. The bass level can be adjusted on the remote control independently of the sound bar by a value of 6 +/-. The sound quality is great considering the price point of the product. The sound bar is being used a larger open 2 story living room and has plenty of power while maintaining clarity. The only thing I would do to improve this product would be to make the feet on the bottom of the sound bar adjustable. I'm sure in most home theater applications the bar would be on a floor-based TV stand, so that the speakers should naturally be propped slightly up to provide the greatest direct sound, but in my situation the fireplace mantle is above head level and I needed to wedge something under the back of the sound bar to pitch it slightly down. Otherwise a great sound bar system!

      I bought this soundbar to synchronize it with my brand new 2013 Samsung TV UN46F6300 via HDMI ARC because my TV speakers sound like a plastic box and I wanted to use my TV remote to control TV+Soundbar. Soundbars are a new territory for me but I am tech savvy and an audiophile. So, the soundbar integrates perfectly with my TV and my TV remote controls automatically turns on/off my TV+Soundbar (Anynet/CEC works great here). The soundbar design is great, I have to say, slim, pretty, slick and it makes itself forgotten. Subwoofer is not good though, it's huge and heavy, and very low at low volume and no Oomph at all unless at very high volume, even if subwoofer volume is at its max (Level 6), so it's pretty useless to me. For fact, this soundbar sounds better at high volume, above 15 for TV and well above 30 for streaming. The soundbar presets and effects are not bad, and watching movies is actually a good experience, again at high volume. Volume slightly goes up and down constantly even without the volume control on. Overall, this is a good soundbar primarily because it's perfectly in-sync with the TV. This is an ideal entry level soundbar for TV and movies especially when you can't spend $2500 on a home theatre system.

      The product makes the television have terrific sound.
      It is difficult to get it hooked up if your are not tech savvy but Samsung is helpful by phone.
      It seems to make the sound so that you can't make it soft however.

                The good: I use this product with my Samsung 60" LED television and the cable box
                provided by bright house. I plugged the system in and it worked immediately. I didn't have to locate the subwoofer or program my T.V. or anything. Seriously just plug and play, in fact; my remote control uses Anynet+, so I don't have to always use both remotes for operation. I chose to connect via HDMI cables which was the easiest option for me. I have used the Bluetooth connect with my iPhone 5 and once again, the devices found each other and worked well.
                The bad: every time I turn on the whole system the speaker bar starts on HDMI and then automatically selects D.IN and then I have to switch it back to HDMI. This happens every time I turn on the T.V. The sound is better than the speakers in the television, but overall they're just good enough.
                Four stars because: 1. always selects D.IN 2. price for sound quality is really high- I would expect this performance out of a system that cost way less.
