4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great sound for the price point
Slick look, interface
Supports wide variety of peripherals

Cons: Received some wrong speaker wires
Replacement wires difficult to find
Not very flexible on speaker placement

Other Thoughts: Bought refurbished.

This may be futile since this model seems to be on its way to being discontinued soon (if it hasn't already), but the speaker wire issue was a big let down.

I have an Optoma HD141X projector and have all my AV stuff at the back of the 10' x 12' room, which meant needing to run 4 speaker wires to the front L and R, center, and subwoofer across the room. I was able to do so with the center and sub using the cables meant for the rear L and R, but not only were the other two cables too short, they had the wrong endpiece. I could see clearly where the previous owner had tried in vain to make it fit despite obviously not being the same shape as the others. I tried looking up replacement parts online but couldn't even find the part number on Samsung's website. Hence probably discontinued soon. Really disappointing.

Came really close to putting it back in the box and returning it but decided to give it a test out of curiosity. And even without the front LR speakers it was still a pretty amazing surround experience. I watched Django Unchained and there was a part where I thought a bunch of my apartment complex's dogs were throwing a fit.... it was the rear right. Not bad for a makeshift 3.1 system.

The extras really sealed me keeping it. I've been looking for something to replace my noisy old PS3 and this fits the bill. Updating and installing apps out of the box took well under 10 minutes (maybe under 5) and the remote doesn't have any problem communicating with the box even though it's behind me.

So in spite of the hardware inconvenience, I will probably end up keeping it. If you manage to snag one of these, just make sure you're prepared to cough up a few extra bucks for more speaker wires so you don't have to wait to find out it's full sound.

Will update once the replacement wires arrive and 3D has been tested.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic for the price

Pros: Works very well. I have a HDMI out connected to my projector. So My pc runs through this product then to my projector and I'm getting virtually no input or output latency.

The surround sound is very very very good for this price point. I wouldn't blast it to 100% but its more than adequate if you listen at reasonable to loud-ish levels. There is a setting where you can adjust the distance that your speakers sit from the main area which really makes setup easy in an living room or other room that is not built as a theater.

Netflix/Hulu work well out of box

Cons: The input takes a bit longer to display when changing than I would like. The software and internal keyboard is slow as heck.

Other Thoughts: If you find this on sale definitely grab it.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat but with some flaws

Pros: Sound reproduction, very clear, very loud
Apps and features
Web browser
USB port
Blu-ray 3D
Lots of sound preset environments for making non-surround audio sound great!
Includes long cables for every speaker that make setup in a normal size room easy.
Built in Wireless

Cons: Web browser crashes on some websites because Samsung did not put more memory inside.

Other Thoughts: Overall, this works very well, I have listened to movies through the apps, played blu-ray movies, and browsed the web. The sound reproduction is very good, even at high levels. No distortion. Tons of base despite the sub-woofer not being powered. I also connected a USB dongle for a wireless Keyboard and Mouse, and they both work great inside of apps and in the web browser.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's a very nice Blu Ray Player

Pros: -The price
-The sound for being a generic Home Theater In a Box
-Has wifi capabilities
-Has Netflix and other media on it with a decent amount of space and will automatically update it's firmware no problems.

Cons: -Freezes after 1-2 hours of watching netflix

Other Thoughts: I really do like this unit and would still recommend it anyone that has the need and budget for this piece of hardware. Really it's a superb unit and I got very little bad to say about it.
However with that being said, the fact it freezes on occasion while watching shows on netflix is downright odd. Perhaps a deficit? Maybe a firmware issue? Dunno.
Would still recommend

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Deal!

Pros: This unit is feature rich with nearly everything you could possibly want. The unit looks new and setup is really easy. Sounds fairly decent with good volume. The built in equalizer allows you to tune it to your space.

Cons: Speakers are just OK but not bad considering the price and how much you get for that price. The sub woofer is passive but sounds good.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this to replace my Klipsch Promedia 5.1 that finally died. I have it connected to the digital out of my PC and the output of a Mac mini. Both work great and sound almost as good as the Klipsch. I can easily switch between computers. I could not find better sounding computer speaker system than this at twice the price.

5 out of 5 eggsMine was new!!

Pros: Awesome little system,
3d sound is amazing!. It sounds just like being in a good theater, the rumble is incredible even at a low volume. I like the fact that the sub woofer has a separate control in the equalizer, to really pump up the bass. Basket Balls sound like solid thuds instead of tinny bounces. Now for the best part! I bought off fleabay to get the no payments for 6 months on 99 dollars or over (still purchased from newegg). I got it out of the box and it has plastic coating!!! Every speaker and the console completely coated. Bag with remote was sealed! I couldn't believe it was as good as new.. I wonder if there was a mistake because it was so good looking (no scratches or anything) it's hard to imagine this thing was ever used.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: You can hardly buy a good 3d bluray player alone for less than 150.00 dollars. This gives you an incredible surround system to boot!

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely love it

Pros: Built in WiFi. Wide variety of apps even Redbox Instant. Full browser, DLNA and cloud storage. HDMI in. Bluetooth streaming.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: This home theatre system serves the purpose it was designed for and then some. In my bedroom it does an awesome job and I am an audiophile.
