Samsung HT-X810

 

After the recent Philips soundbar review, my interest was piqued toward these sleek devices, and thus we decided to call in more from the competition in the market. And who better than Samsung, who is now one of the biggest names in the audio video...

The MRP is Rs. 44,900 though you can get it for lesser on the street. This is definitely an expensive price tag, though soundbars do cost a heft sum. The price would have been reasonable and the product a hit, if the sound output was good. It's a...

Samsung HT-X810T

 

Editors' note : The rating of the Samsung HT-X810T has been changed since publication to better reflect its value compared to competing home theater systems.

Soundbar surround system with built-in DVD player and wireless powered subwoofer; eliminates the need for an AV receiver; HDMI output; easy setup; streams Bluetooth audio from compatible A2DP sources; good digital media support.

Virtual surround sound delivers minimal impact; very limited connectivity for additional external devices; the DVD player's nice, but a Blu-ray player would have been even better; uneven HDMI video quality.

While we've heard better virtual surround sound, the Samsung HT-X810T's easy setup and dearth of wires will appeal to those searching for simplicity and a minimalist aesthetic.

Samsung HT-X810

 

The Samsung HT-X810 was one of the coolest soundbars announced at CES 2008, mostly because of the 5.8GHz wireless subwoofer. That plus Bluetooth connectivity, a USB port, HDMI output, and an on-board DVD/CD player put it ahead of most competitors, and...

Excellent audio and video quality; good connectivity options; easy setup

Slow input switching; confusing audio settings; remote is not universal

we have no qualms about recommending it wholeheartedly for owners of 40-inch or larger HDTVs ...

"Don't buy this product"

 

Samsung claimed that they haven't had any complaints about the motorized DVD door being a problem, which seems unusual when 4 out of 7 reviewers on CNET mentioned the problem. I doubt this is worth paying to have it fixed, but we'll ship it off and see...

Sound is okay, functioned properly for the most part.

The only trouble we've had is with the motorized DVD door sticking, but it always worked...eventually. Until yesterday, when it stopped completely. Worth paying to have it fixed?

"Great sound from a 2.1 home theatre system"

 

If you are into Action movies and gaming this system will not dissapoint. With a loud centre piece and a deep bass sub you cant go wrong. At the end of the day if you want to buy a $1,000+ home speaker system by all means go for it, but you would be...

Simple setup with minimal cables to deal with. Great sound for movies

No blu-ray, controller is not universal.

Samsung HT-X810 Review

 

You won't be able to use your iPod through USB. On an iPod mp3 files are saved under several hidden folders, the lamest protection Apple folks could think of. Therefore the unit cannot see them.
