Samsung HW-F550 review


Not content to rest on its laurels as a top name in flat screen TVs, mobile phones, and tablets, Samsung has been making a concerted push into the home audio segment. The company now boasts a respectable selection of wireless speakers and home theater...

Warm, powerful low end ; Smooth midrange ; Well featured ; Slim profile

Lack of detail and definition up top ; Dialog gets cloudy in action scenes ; Somewhat awkward cable connections

If a boost of bass and a smooth ride is all you really need, Samsung’s HW F550 will do the trick.

Great sound


Would tell someone to buy this product. Great sound for the price.



Consumer review by:

Looks and sounds great!


I really like this Soundbar a lot. I can hear my TV much better since the sound is coming towards me instead of back into the wall with the flatscreen TV speakers. The only way my TV can connect to the Soundbar directly is through an optical cable;...

Easy to use

Had to call Samsung Tech Support to hook it up

Great soundbar for music and movies!


I bought this soundbar for my boyfriend because he loves to listen to music and watch movies. It's a great alternative to having a receiver. He is able to stream his IMAC music through the tv. The sound is awesome.

the sound is awesome

A good addition to the new TV


There are many remotes, TV, Sound Bar, and Cable. Some can be combined but because the TV was not the correct model some won't work.

Plug and Play

Have to use too many remotes

Excellent sound quality


Love the sound, love the look. Lots of features. Problem was that when connecting my new Samsung TV to this soundbar using HDMI, it would power off when the TV did, but not back on because when it turned on, it would chance the inout to . I went crazy...

Sound is terrific, low profile

Odd hookup to get it working as it should work

Great Sound


I love the sound you get from this. Don't need speakers all over just sets in front of TV and seems like the sound is everywhere. Very clear. The bar is long and thin and doesn't block the TV screen but it slightly too long could be an inch or two...

Easy set up Good price

Bar slightly to long

Great surround sound


Use it the first time for the Superbowl. We set it up a few hours before. We were nervous that we would not be able to complete in time. This system was easy to set up and enjoyed by all.

Easy to set up, Easy to change sound for sports, movies, games
