The only way to get these things to sound "acceptable" is to connect them to a device with a highly adjustable EQ so that you can pump the treble all the way up. Otherwise it will sound like complete garbage (Beats headphones like. You audiophiles know...

sleek looking

Horrid sound quality. Woofer cuts in and out randomly. There is NO trebble... everything sounds muffled. Mildly adjustable through different sound settings. The tweeters definitely work as I can feel them slightly vibrating by the touch and when I put...

Great product

 

Newegg had the best price when looking around at other online retailers. This system works great with my Samsung TV and gives the sound I was looking for from my PS4.

Samsung HW-F450/ZA

 

So I live in an apartment (about 1,200 sqft). This system is PLENTY loud enough for the entire place. I could disturb neighbors if I wanted. Sub EQ ranges from -6 to +6. I keep it on +3. It's not a very highquality sub and lacks punch but it does put...

Like all Samsung products, it looks good ; Solid amount of controls on remote ; Plenty loud enough and plenty of bass for my situation (see other thoughts below) ; Wifi Sub, less cords ; Sub EQ adjustment ; Comes with metal mounting bracket. It's about...

I've had a difficult time trying to get multiple devices hooked up to this thing the way I want and I'm somewhat unsuccessful ; Only has 1 HDMI-in, 1 HDMI-out, 3.5mm jack, and direct output jack ; Not the greatest instruction manual...can't believe I...

Cannot recommend this

 

I bought this and a Yamaha 201 to compare. The 201 soundbar itself provides more bass than the two pieces this samsung brings combined. If I'm going to go to the trouble of getting a SW I want the bass to be felt even at low relatively volume. The...

Price ; Hdmi input ; BT

No bass from SW to speak of ; No grill on front speakers

Just Okay

 

I got it "free" with a high-end Samsung TV and I'm very glad I didn't buy it alone; worth about $150 IMO.

extremely flexible and easy-to-use interfaces

Sound is flat; no true tweeter and the woofer/subwoofer is weak (but solid) even at max setting. DFX helps but the sub/woofer is going to require some circuit adjustments. BTW I use this only in a moderate size bathroom.

Atypical Samsung Product

 

Normally, I find Samsung electronics to be above the rest. However, not only is this product confusing to operate, it also operates sporadically. The remote either operates the TV or the speaker, but not both. It doesn't sync with my Samsung TV. The...
