I ordered this system after having 3 Sony systems over the previous 5+ years. I was looking primarily for a wireless speaker system and finding a Samsung with the Smart Hub was an added bonus. This works well and compliments my Samsung TV very well. The Anynet+ system allows me to have a backup remote to my Logitech all-in-one since it controls both the HT system and TV with one. The sound is rich and crisp and even has an equalizer that can be customized in the settings.

With 2 HDMI inputs, an optical audio in with a dedicated input, and a single HDMI out, this is the perfect system - and the price can't be beat! Hooking the system up in a breeze, just be sure to plug in the wireless speakers BEFORE turning on the system for the first time. Failure to do so can cause problems with setting it up, but nothing that a restart or 2 can't fix.

Some wonderful extra features that aren't mentioned in the product listing:

+ Custom equalizer
+ Built in Wi-Fi
+ ms sound delay settings (if sound doesn't match TV)

Overall, I would strongly recommend this system to anyone looking for a great priced wireless speaker surround sound system.

I am a current owner of the HT-C6900W and completely satisfied with the system. My review of the 6900W is available here on Amazon and everything I stated there still remains the same. Never had an issue with performance or reliability for over two years of use. It just sounds great (for an HTIB) and works without a hiccup.

I recently relocated to a second home and purchased the E5500W for it. The price of the E5500W is cheaper than that the C6900W (even at the end of model year fire sale price) was but I still had high expectations as I was attributing the price decrease to newer and cheaper technologies.

While the performance is similar, there are a few "compromises" that diminishes the quality of the E5500W compared to the C6900W:
- No autocalibration. This isn't a big deal as you can still dial in the distance and dB offset of each speaker.
- No onboard 1gb internal memory for BD Live. Don't really care about that.
- Still no Amazon Instant! Come on Samsung, I'm a Prime member!
- The remote is skinny with smaller buttons and not backlit.
- Front left, right speakers are single woofer while the C6900W are double (the E6500W looks to be equipped with double). Center, rears and sub looks to be the same.
- Sound quality is very good but speech and low bass seem just ever so slightly muffled compare to the C6900W.
- Some static noise comes from rear speakers. It is infrequent, maybe a few seconds for about every hour of use but this never happened on the C6900W. I don't think it's the speakers themselves but the wireless rear connection. I'm not factoring in this in the comparison as I will exchange if the problem continues or worsens. It could also be an issue with the cable feed.

System is easily set up and has good connectivity options, hooked up to satellite reciever and xbox as well as TV. Connected to wireless network easily. Sound quality is better than average, but not spectacular. The wireless rear speakers make installation a breeze, but are somewhat weak in sound delivery. Disappointed that there is not a multiple disk changer, and the single drive is slow loading. Disk drive makes loud clunk and whirl noises when the system is turned on and when loading disks. No complaint on visual output, crisp and clear.

We moved into a new house and didn't want to run wires to the rear speakers of our old dvd system. There were four entrances we'd have to cross. We bought a sound-bar with wireless Subwoofer and a Samsung Blue-ray player. Bleh! Not much real sound. Saw this on Amazon for $380. Then one day it was $319!!!! Snapped it up. Absolutely great. Subwoofer is not powered, but is powerful! The rear speaker wires attach to an attractive wireless box that sits un-noticed on the bottom shelf of one of our end tables. Does a REALLY great job with the rear sound. Better than our old wired system! The Netflix is fine and there are just so many other applications I haven't even gotten to. Web-surfing? No need for an extra wireless multi-media box like we had before with this system. Has an Iphone/Ipad dock but no 3.5mm jack for my Sansa MP3. Had to buy a $2, 3.5mm to RCA cable to play it. Has HDMI out and two HDMI's and an optical in. Too many possibilities at this price! Easy set-up, once you get everything unwrapped! Thare's a Samsung HT-E6500W out now at twice the price, but I can't see how they could improve this one.

To start, I gave this product 3 stars because it has some great features, but needs improvement. It lacks a few features I thought to be important along with some features just not working. This was bought as a replacement surround system for a speaker system I already had set up but did not have a receiver for.

Please note: I can not rate the 3D features of this product as I do not have a 3D TV.

Setup was rather easy, included are speaker wires for all speakers with plug in connectors that plug into the blu-ray player and they are color coded for each speaker which was nice. The speakers seem kind of small to me, definitely smaller than what I am replacing. Also, the two surround speakers aren't fully wireless either, they plug into a wireless receiver box that also has to be plugged into a power source. This did not work out well for me as my surround speakers are mounted on the ceiling at the corner of the wall, facing downward towards the viewing area. The are wired through the attic to the TV location. So I had to plug in the wireless box under the TV and then splice into the wires that were already there to add the connectors that came with the speakers so I could plug them into the wireless box, if that makes sense. You can't simply plug in the wire into the unit. You have to use the supplied connectors. So the fact these these speakers are "wireless" is useless to me. Also, it should be noted that the surround speakers MUST be wireless. You cannot use them wired. There is no connection for the surround speakers on the back of the blu-ray unit. FAIL! The main thing that I did not like was that these speakers do not come with wall mounts. They only have ONE hole in the back to hang them on a screw. Not very study when you hang them on the wall.
