5 out of 5 eggsPretty good 2.1 bar

Pros: I've read quite a few reviews and for the money it was either the Vizio VHT215 (preferred) or this Samsung HW-E450. The Vizio (based on reviews) probably has a bit better sound quality, but is about $40 more; also refurbished (elsewhere). So when I saw this Samsung for $150 (at elsewhere) with free shipping and not tax I was sold.
The sound bar comes with an RCA audio cable and a short USB extension cable. But it does NOT have and HDMI or optical cables - so have one ready. Also NO batteries (2xAAA) with the remote. It's packaged well and also includes the hanging bracket and a manual. The manual was only helpful to connect the Subwoofer to the bar (mine wasn't synced) and to connect the iPhone to the bar via BlueTooth - both were easy. The rest of the manual sucks!
Took me a few hours to figure out the right connection so it turns on and off with the TV and it's remote - but it DOES work. First, you need to have an ARC (Audio Return Channel) HDMI on your TV. Then you have to make sure that you enable "device sync/communication" on your TV (if equipped). Panasonic has Vierra connect, Samsung has Anynet, etc.. Connect an HDMI cable into the ARC (on TV) and into the HDMI OUT (yes out) on the soundbar. Turn on the soundbar, press/turn on "anynet" on it and press input intil the display reads "TV ARC". If it initially doesn't work, try to leave it on that input and turn the bar off then on and/or turn anynet off then on to reset the signal. Also, try switching inputs until you reach "TV ARC" again - took me a few tries.. Like I said it works for me! Now the sound bar turns on and off with the TV and the volume adjusts with the same (TV/cable) remote. I called Samsung and they were clueless.
The quality of the soundbar is great! MUCH better then the TV speakers. It's obviously no 5.1 home theater, but great for a slim bar as it fills a large room. The subwoofer gives off some nice bass and the bar is quite loud and clear. The remote has all the right buttons - bass adjustment, preset equalizer options and two 3d sound levels. The sound is quite good and the sub compliments it well. The BlueTooth music streaming works good too. Overall I'm very happy with this soundbar and would definitely recommend it. It's a great buy at $150!

Cons: No HDMI or optical cable and no batteries for the remote.

3 out of 5 eggsOk sound. Bad Control

Pros: The sound and form factor are pretty good for my needs.

Blu-Tooth works well.

Cons: No publicly available discreet commands for On/Off and input selection make this soundbar hard to integrate into a smart remote.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent sound quality!

Pros: Despite the first, so-called review, this soundbar has exceeded my expectations tremendously. I've owned several soundbars in the past and not one of them has sounded this natural and transparent. Midrange is nice and full and treble is as smooth as silk. Mid bass is taken care via the subwoofer that also blends quite well with the bar for a natural, well rounded audio experience. 2 channel music sounds wonderful. Classical, pop, rock, it doesn't matter. Those tiny drivers sound much larger than they are. That in itself is amazing.. Despite other reviewers, the 3D sound enhancement does work and adds a sense of width and 3 dimensionality to whatever you're listening to. It's not going to simulate a full 7.1 surround system but does a good job of recreating surround effects from movies and gives surprising depth to music.

Cons: The only thing that I wish the system offered was HDMI pass-through. I'm using this with my computer and if you have your monitor set to turn off after a certain amount of time, the music will stop as well... The only way to keep everything playing is by leaving your HDMI connected monitor on constantly. However, you can bypass this by using the digital optical input instead of the HDMI connection.

Other Thoughts: Despite my issue with the system having no HDMI pass-through, I'm giving this set a 5 star rating simply due to the sound quality. It's amazing what Samsung and other companies have achieved with tiny loudspeakers and digital amplification. Despite other negative reviewers on the web, just set this thing up correctly and you will be pleasantly surprised.

1 out of 5 eggsOverpriced, Terrible Sound Quality

Pros: Slim design, wireless sub was easy to setup

Cons: Washed out sound quality, no range of sound, "3D sound" is a gimmick

Other Thoughts: I purchased looking for a sleek and easy sound system. This was sleek and easy but the quality was terrible.
