Samsung HT-WS1G Wall-Mountable Speaker System

 

Armed with a wireless subwoofer, the Samsung HT-WS1G system is a tidy alternative to your TVs speakers.

Very Good for Replacement of TV Speaker System

 

Apparently like many others who have invested in this type of speaker system, I chose this solution to enhance the sound for the TV in my bedroom. I had originally bought a Vizio sound bar for this purpose and had plenty of problems, one of which was a...

When you find a working pair, it's great sound

 

plugs into the digital audio port on the back of the cable box, wirelessly links to the subwoofer, sits unobtrusively under a double kitchen cabinet, really punches out the sound in today's HD/Dolby Digital environment - recommended if it works...

HIdes away under the kitchen cabinets, blows out the sound from a small 19" TV, subwoofer works wirelessly elsewhere in the room, really makes the experience with the smaller HD TV enjoyable

buying a sealed carton that contains a defective unit, having little support from the manufacturer - needing to know when to cut your losses and return it for another sealed carton

Excellent Wireless Soundbar

 

If your accessing the internet using hard wired modem/router - no issues. If accessing the internet using a wireless system running 2.4 you have to switch off the Samsung HT WS1R when accessing the internet. Or, purchase a dual band router/adapters.

Great sound, easy install and setup - o/s remote control (both soundbar and TV)

When accessing the internet both main & test PC failed, as did the notebook. I switched off the HT-WS1R Sound bar and all three machines were back on line with access to the internet

Sub woofer does not stay connected..disappointing sound

 

wireless technology just isn't quite there to have all these different devices.

slim and sleek

wireless subwoofer goes in and out...tried moving in all different spots. Even tried to change channels on wireless router because i thought it might be interfering...no luck

Consumer review by:

Manufacturing defect ....sound clips in and out

 

Several sites confirmed this is a major flaw across the line. Many have had the same problem. Not only was their the the "frequency response" issue, it just didn't sound good. It has 4 sound settings, news, pass, movie, and music. None of them sound...

Small wireless, but usless if it does not work

The low frequency from certain channels drops out...in effect making the bass turn on and off. Found from other sites that this is common. Sound is not that great either. Smasung Tech support suggested I "send it in" took it back
