Samsung HT-X50 5.1 Home Theater System


To complement their line of small flat panel TVs, Samsung Electronics produced the HT-X50 home theater system. Not only does it have a cool name, I mean who wouldn't want to own an X50, but it has a

Samsung HT-X50 Review and Prices


The Samsung HT-X50 home theater system sports five small speakers and a subwoofer to give you the full surround experience along with its internal five-disc DVD changer. The system includes the slim line DVD/Receiver unit, six speakers, the remote...

Great buy for the price


I do not know what he first reviewer was doing wrong, but this DOES play movie backups, on both DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW. I do wish this played more video formats and codecs, but for the price I am fine with hooking up my PC to do that. I did NOT buy this...

Great Price for an entry level home theater. this is my first home theater, so I cannot compare to other products, but it sounds clear. Sound modes are a plus with the absence of an equalizer. Over all this is a decent choice for people looking for an...

sub woofer is kind of weak; too few inputs on the receiver; if you want power or a true receiver I would recommend buying something else. The receivers menu is only available in DVD mode and when the disc is stopped

All in One Does Wonders


Overall A Great system that truely does wonders ; First and foremost, squash the extra remotes, this is a reciever and dvd player all in one, no worry about the extra remotes ; Has a digital output from your tv, so lets you plugs all your inputs...

Amp is set up for 3 ohm speakers, most home audio speakers are usually 8 ohm, can be confusing upgrading speakers

DOES NOT work with MAC formatted ipods..


I don't have an hdtv, so i can't really speak to the upconversion. This isn't a reciever, the only input it has is optical audio on back, headphone output, and 1/8" input on the front. no video or anything else.

For the price, it's pretty darn good. 5 disc changer, usb support for hard drives, comes with an ipod cord

DOES NOT SUPPORT MAC FORMATTED IPODS!! The tech support guys tried to tell me it was because 'itunes for mac automatically puts all files into their proprietary .aac format', no it doesn't. All my files are in .mp3 format, and it reads my...

Love This HTIB!


Playing Bioshock on 360 with accurate and clear surrond is really awesome. You'll probably turn the sub down after a while, because it can get just that loud. I will try to connect it to my TV using a HDMI to DVI cable, seeing as it doesn't have an...

I absolutely love this product. I bought it because I wanted a good 5.1 system with a digital input. This system did that and so much more! I alternate between my 360 and PC connected thru the optical in, and the sound is amazing. My friend's value set...

The speakers are just a little heavy. A strange complaint, I know, but this is only really an issue if you want to hang them without damaging the wall (like in my dorm room). But that's also just a problem with the walls in the room, not good for...

Great for the price


I bought this product off of BestBuy website for only $190 before tax which I think was because of a sale - since the price has been a lot higher ever since. When I went to go pick it up - it took longer then ten minutes for them to bring it to me - so...

cost, and look
