No WiFi, no hdmi in?

 

So my wife bought this home theater in a box system, she asked me to take a look at the spec sheet first, everything looked great at a really good price. Then it got here, and I started hooking it up. I noticed no HDMI input, no huge deal I can run...

Speakers look good Mounted to the wall easily Turned on first try

No wifi No HDMI Anemic subwoofer

Disappointing

 

Inexpensive for a combo DVD Surround Sound System.

Blue Ray player only last one year! Almost to the day! Only used Blue Ray player One Time and the DVD Three or Four times. The audio still works, but since the video is broken, I can't change the settings. From the start!-- DVD Bass is non-existent,...

Great product for the price

 

Can't beat the price for a Wi-Fi blu-ray surround. My living room is not huge, but even at 1/2 volume it is almost too much sound. If you have a big room, this will be more than enough power to fill it.

This system has a great sound and the speaker cables are surprisingly long enough to actually reach the back speakers ; Easy color coded wires and speaker labels make setup a snap ; Great sound and amazing bass from the subwoofer ; Easy connect to my...

No input, so I cant hook my PS4 in to get the surround ; Would like a little more control on subwoofer volume and rear speaker volume. Just EQ presets available ; Samsung app is ok, but I would have liked to be able to access my HBO Go account

Didn't make it through christmas

 

Wanted a samsung unit so all the devices were from a single manufactturer. Easy to setup and install.

I think I've learned a lesson. Its not such a great deal now that I'm out almost $30 to RMA the unit. It powers up for a few minutes and then starts a high pitched whine. By the time I pay all the shipping both directions, I've spent what I would have...

Misleading Warranty

 

This HT system is very good value for the price. The sound is pretty good for the speaker size and the blu ray player does what is expected. Pretty limited on the range of apps of available, though most of the big ticket items like Youtube, Netflix and...
