Samsung HW-D450


If you want to pump up your HDTV's audio, the Samsung HW-D450 is a simple sound bar that gets surprisingly loud, but high volumes can bring midrange distortion.

Big sound. Solid bass. Easy to set up.

Midrange tends to distort at high volumes. Remote has too many extra, non-working buttons.

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.

Samsung HW-E450


Samsung\'s HW-E450 is a classic soundbar design with its electronics, full-range drivers and tweeters built in to the main \'bar, complemented by a wireless subwoofer. The soundbar itself is long and thin, meaning it can happily sit in front of a...

In all, this is a decent proposition – a few bonus features and a respectable price tag combining with a good all-round performance.

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.

Consumer review (

Pretty good 2.1 bar


I've read quite a few reviews and for the money it was either the Vizio VHT215 (preferred) or this Samsung HW-E450. The Vizio (based on reviews) probably has a bit better sound quality, but is about $40 more; also refurbished (elsewhere). So when I saw...

No HDMI or optical cable and no batteries for the remote

Ok sound. Bad Control


The sound and form factor are pretty good for my needs ; Blu-Tooth works well

No publicly available discreet commands for On/Off and input selection make this soundbar hard to integrate into a smart remote

Great Sound


Just got this sound bar this week. It was very easy to set up. I use the digital audio input from my TV and set the unit to come on when the TV is turned on. I was able to set up the remote from the cable company to control the volume and muting from...

Not bad at all...but


I got the refurb unit and this is an excellent value for that price point. This is 100 percent better than the stock in-screen speakers on the Samsung TV and I don't know about others, but I can make my living room table shake with the bass turned all...
