Great for the $$$

 

Got the system during black friday deals and paid around $300. If I had to do it all over again I would probably pay another $100 and get the 6500 with the extra HDMI inputs to run Xbox and HD DVR trough the system. Currently I must run everything...

Good Price. Easy Set up. Calibrates well with current Samsung HD TV Set. IPod Hookup. Streams Netflix Great. Pandora App is great. Stream live baseball games w/ app. Good to great sound

I have noticed the same problem as Vodkadrummer w/ the bass. No HDMI Inputs. Blueray controls on box are tempermental. Radio doesn't sound as great as I thought it would

Packs a Punch

 

Very good unit for the price. I wouldn't pay more than $400 for it though (got mine on sale from Delll for appx $350).

Sound quality is respectable and desireable. Setup is dummy proof. System options available are reasonable and sufficient for a great home theater experience. Compact. Fairly easy to connect to computer for pic/mp3 playback

Poor disk door quality (flimsy plastic) occasionally (25%) gets hung up and the door does not open without assistance ; Touch sensitive open/close button on my unit only works intermittantly directly out of the box. Limited # of useful Apps

Good sound and features for the price

 

Good entry level for the value-sensitive buyer. Do not expect audiophile sound from toy speakers. But they are MUCH better than speakers on most TV sets.

Easy set up ; Adequate/Good sound (albeit a bit "boomy") even in a large room with two story ceiling ; value for money

Pathetic speaker wires with push-pin attachments--cannot substitute #14 or 16 wires without adding in new pins (royal pain) ; Unit seems entirely integrated--one function failing would take out everything ; limited apps

Poor persormance. WIFI doesnot work

Nothing worth suggesting

WIFI , pc share doesnot work. Product support from Samsung is terible

Samsung HT-C5500 Blu-ray Home Theater system

 

The fact that it is a home theater system adds a lot of eagerness to using it and checking its sound system and picture quality and things like that. But if the internet connectivity is dismal it only means partial value on the purchase of this home...

Good Deal

 

Good product and good price for all that you get.
