I was a little skeptical of how much better the sound could be from one of these things than the tiny speakers in my new LED television. But it does sound better. I'm using this paired with a newer Samsung UN60H6350AFXZA through the HDMI-ARC port and it works well. The subwoofer was easy to pair. Though the bass response isn't as great as I'd like it to be, it is acceptable.

I had to crank the treble all the way up (to it's max of +3 from default 0) to get the highs to sound decent. Since the subwoofer is a little muddy and slow, I also turned it down a couple notches (which is nice to have a separate subwoofer volume control).

My biggest gripe is that, while I got this primarily for the new television, I also wanted it for a better music listening experience while working on the couch. The bluetooth connection works pretty well through my phone (Nexus 5 on Android 4.4). But I cannot get it to pair with my mid-2013 MacBook Pro. A little disappointing as that is my primary device for listening to music.

The manual states that the USB port can be used for future firmware upgrades. So I hope this is just a bug that might be fixed in the future and not some "Samsung vs Apple" silliness... Being able to stream my music bluetooth from my laptop would make this a 5-star review for me.

Update (4/30/14):

The LCD panel has died on the unit only about a month after use. Not sure if I will try and return for this since the unit still functions fine with the TV and Bluetooth (I can't pair new devices since I can't see the LCD menu, but already paired devices still work fine). But this is annoying because I can't easily adjust the sound tone (bass and treble) or easily choose another function other than Bluetooth and HDMI.

I decided to stay Samsung for the Soundshare since it works with my 2013 Samsung PN51F5500. I wanted the ease of connecting without to many wires. I also decided to stay Samsung due to the small footprint of this soundbar. This thing is small and for apartment living it's a great soundbar because it fits directly in front of my plasma which takes a lot of room due to the stupid 4 prong swivel that comes with the plasma.

So why a Soundbar and not a full surround system? I'm in an apartment and the soundbar just seemed correct. Had this been a home, I would of thought twice and went full home theater system. Also, my plasma's sound is very lacking. I hate watching movies on this thing because voices are hard to hear sometimes. Due to it's direction of sound coming from the bottom of the television, it's poor. The soundbar improves this by providing me directional noise. Things are definitely clearer and with the presets, it's awesome.

How about the sub? Well, for a 900 sq ft apartment, this thing BOOMS while on the 0 setting (it moves -6 or +6). I've turned it down so I don't get a headache or get noise complaints. Seriously, wow! I can't wait to watch an action film with this bad boy!

Installation was a breeze. I just plugged it in, synced the soundbar with my plasma, and the soundbar synced automatically with the subwoofer, and i was good to go.

The quality is top notch. I love the side silver trim, and I love the LED in the middle of the soundbar that lets you know what you are doing.

I'm happy I got this unit :)

*UPDATE 06/12/14* That was short lived. I've found a really bad issue with this soundbar while it's connected using SoundShare (ActiveAir). When viewing videos via USB or streaming (Netflix/Hulu/Amazon/etc.

Works great! I am able to control the sound bar with my Samsung 6800 TV remote.
Sound works great with regular tv channels, blue tooth and through wireless network drives AVI format files work great!!! Very crisp and sharp sound the sub woofer is awesome.
I bought this system from Best Buy for $314 it is worth every penny! I tested the blue tooth quality and range at store, I found the samsung sound bars blue tooth range was best! LG sound bar was horrible it started to cut out 4 feet away.
I am not sure if type of phone makes any difference but I'm using Samsung S4.

My 2 year old son said WOW while playing Frozen at sound level 25. I played the beginning of the movie 6 times for him.

Got this for my brother's condo and so far it's been real solid. Paired it wirelessly with his UN55H7150 and setup took less than 5 minutes; was kind of taken aback by how simple Samsung's SoundShare/Connect makes pairing a capable sound bar. Bass levels are decent, could be louder, but for the size of the living area in my bro's condo, it's perfect.

Only issue I'm experiencing thus far is a little "bzzz" noise when loading content from the Plex channel on a Roku 3. It's a short little buzz, like less than half a second. Read online that can be fixed by using a wired connection, so we're going to try that. If that's not a viable solution, it's a minor issue really as that's the only instance it ever happens. Will troubleshoot more with the folks on the Roku forums and Plex channels to see what could be causing it.

That said! This is a great product for those who own Samsung HDTVs that support SoundShare/Connect and want a significant upgrade over the built in-speakers. Highly recommended, not just for the aesthetics (this thing looks sleek and modern), but for the sound as well.
