Works great as a surround system without needing a true receiver
Pros: All you need to do is connect this to your TV with either a TOSlink cable or just a plain HDMI cable if your TV is Audio Return Channel (ARC) enabled. This allows the system to play the audio of everything that is connected to your TV via the Digital In function. Plug your Xbox, HTPC, DVR, etc in to the TV and send the audio from the TV to this system.
Cons: This model does not allow for new apps to be installed. You get the 5 apps that come with it, but no chance to get anything else. Here's hoping they fix that with a firmware upgrade sometime in the future.
Other Thoughts: To the commenter below who gave it one star, maybe you should find out what the system actually does and how it works before you buy it?

Pros: Probably works fine if you only want to use surround for your blu-ray player.
Cons: The speaker cables are a proprietary format which only will connect directly to the Blu-Ray player. These speakers are not standard connections as you would expect to be able to connect to a receiver. I looked over both Neweggs site, and Samsungs site, and could not find information on either regarding the speaker connections being unique.
