Don't Listen to NA

 

I don't own this system but have been researching it. Don't listen to NA, he or she does not know what they are talking about. First of all Korea doesn't encompass all of Asia, like they think it does. The PS3 is actually made by Sony, which is guess...

Sweeeeeetttttttttttttttttttttttt!!!!!!!

 

Sound is awesome, 1000 Watts are plenty it rocks my house.... The g/f was like I can't believe you wasted money on this.... Then we watched the first movie she was hooked immediately

Two things I am picky about I hate that when you start the machine it automatically wont start on the setting I left it at, and if you say wireless rear speakers they should be wireless... But overall I LOVE IT

Nice upgrade

 

This system was an upgrade from a smaller Samsung system. Easy setup and installation. The dual HDMI ports simply cable routing. The wireless rear speakers make a clean install. Routing all video and sound through the system makes the whole experience...

Nice system, Easy Setup

 

After comparing Home Theater units for about 6 months, selected this one. Not really a techie, but setup was pretty intuitive and easier than I expected. Recommend wireless keyboard and mouse to give better control capabilities. Had much older LCD...

Samsung HT-E5500

 

Bluetooth connectivity with iphone/iPad to play music over surround sound. Smart tv options to connect internet to system for youtube, iPlayer, etc

Smart tv connection options are very slow instruction manual needs better clarity on security settings as this caused me to not be able to play DVDs initially as security settings default to not play above 12/PG ratings
