Entry Level, Gets the Job Done
on October 18, 2013
Bought Samsung unit to go with my 42" LG LCD in my living room (380 square ft.)
Overall works ok with TV, Xbox 360. Using Optical cable I grabbed at Best Buy (rocketfish 6ft works great).
+Bluetooth works (just ok, I find myself re-syncing my iPhone a lot and my one laptop will simply not load the driver at all).
+Bass is effective but not overkill
+Remote is small and get the job done
+LCD isn't overly bright
+Sound and sound options are 3.5 stars for the price point
-sitting flat it tilts upward a bit
-bluetooth connections are kind of limited
-Smart Volume works well with some media, not well with others.
-occasional voice delay while using Xbox 360 despite settings being done properly
Overall not a bad unit for a small place. Samsung could have executed better in packing with a 6ft Optical cable and updating it's bluetooth drivers out of the box. Firmware updates are a real pain in the but.
Buy it if you want simple, check out Polk's soundbars if you want a bit more oomph in your setup.
