Samsung HW-D450 2.1 Channel Soundbar Reviewed

 

If you are looking for a soundbar, you'll also need a subwoofer to round out the sound. Fortunately, the Samsung HW-D450 soundbar comes packaged with both a subwoofer and impressive performance.

The HW-D450's look is crazy-sexy-cool and looks decidedly morehigh-end than its asking price would have you believe, provided youdon't get too close. It's one of the better looking, better builtsoundbars I've encountered recently at or near its price...

The HW-D450 has no speaker grill so those of you with children maywant to take extra precaution to ensure curious fingers don't damagethe small drivers ; At its asking price, I feel the HW-D450 should include Samsung's iPod dock

For $349.99 retail the Samsung HW-D450 soundbar is more than just apretty face for it packs an impressive amount of performance into itssupermodel physique. While there is stiff competition in and around theHW-D450's asking price, it's still worth an...

Samsung HW-D450ZA

 

The SamsungHW-D450ZA sound bar is a high performance sound bar capable of producing not just loud audio, but quality audio. Additionally, the included multi-function remote control makes operating the D450ZA speaker bar a stress-free and user-friendly...

The intuitive remote control makes operating the Samsung HW-D450ZA a breeze

Because it lacks HDMI connections, you won't be able to get the clearest digital audio signal available

With 280 total watts of power, the Samsung HW-D450ZA provides ample volume levels and robust audio that won't break your budget.

Great sound bar if you want better audio for your TV.

 

I bought this to get better audio for movies from my 50" plasma. I have an open floor plan and a very large living room that is not great for any audio set up. The TV and sound bar are in a corner. The couch is positioned opposite with one ... Expand...

Great sound. Easy set up

All small things - otherwise 5 stars: No tuner to for fine adjustment - only presets (though this is common for sound bars). Not a plethora of inputs if you need to connect a lot of devices. No convenient hook-up for iPod. Can't see the display well

Nice sound. Sleek design

 

May not be good value for money but the product is worth getting. Overall a Good product.

Best part is the really sleek design and good bass sound

Higher price is the only limiting factor

Good as a substitute for the LED TV audio

 

In comparison to the LED TV sound, this is much better, speech sounded natural and sound effects from action movies are audible, like explosions has bass to it. As a simple setup, its does what its suppose to do. The drawback is that the bass is little...

Easy setup with optical cable ; Soundbar turn itself ON when the TV is powered and turn itself OFF after the TV is switched off for sometime ; Soundbar remote can switch the TV and change the channel for watching TV program with one remote ; Greatly...

Sound from bar interferes with TV, adjusting the TV sync did not help. Had to switch off the TV sound ; Subwoofer do not have enough earth shaking bass ; Samsung LED TV remote cannot control the soundbar audio

Consumer review by:

Nice design. Sounds good. Lacks hdmi.

 

Sound options for different modes. Two optical inputs. Wireless sub to minimize clutter and better for wall mounting. Sleek design that goes well with other samsung products

Lacks hdmi inputs. Other remotes may not be set up with this unit. Not a real stable design for non mounting option

Waste of Money

 

0 Stars. The sound is muffled and sounds worse than the speakers on my Smsng 7000 series TV, which are terrible as well. Not worth it at any price, in my opinion.
