The HT-C5500 is a solid all-in-one home theater package at a good price, but you need to know what it can--and can't--do before you decide to buy.

First, some pros and cons:

*Low cost
*Easy setup
*Integrates with Samsung AnyConnect+ TVs for one-step DVD playback
*Decent enough sound and sufficient volume for a family room
*Netflix and YouTube connectivity work well
*Completely integrated in one relatively small unit
*iPod/iPhone dock included
*Speakers look nice and are very small and unobtrusive

*Very limited inputs (Audio only; there are no HDMI inputs--the description above is wrong)
*Flabby bass response (no surprise given the 8lb passive subwoofer)
*Completely integrated--if one part dies, your entire home theater system is offline
*Wireless Internet use requires optional ($70) proprietary Samsung LAN adapter
*Proprietary speaker connectors
*AnyConnect+ can be a little wonky: If you have a disc in the tray, DVD playback seems to override all the other functions such as Internet services or the AUX input.

Even given all the Cons, this system suits my needs very well. I already owned a Samsung TV. I didn't want a proliferation of remotes or components. And the odd shape of my living room meant that I wasn't going to get optimal surround sound in any case, so I wasn't willing to pay a fortune for a system.

I ran the HT-C5500's HDMI output to one input on my TV and connected my FIOS box's optical audio output and my Mac mini's analog audio output to the appropriate inputs on the HT-C5500. The HT-C5500's remote is nothing special, but it makes it quite easy (after a little practice and reading of the manual) to switch between setups.

Verified Purchase
I will start with what's bad and the reason why I gave it 4 stars.I have a Samsung TV and one of the reasons I bought this was so that I could sync all my devices using one remote and the Anynet feature(a Samsung AV network system to automatically control Samsung audio-video devices). This unfortunately has been a slow painful learning process, its working now but there are some unresolved issues (e.g.Anynet sometimes taking a long time to recognize devices). Lastly, I wish the rear speakers were wireless. You do have the option to buy an expensive low rated Samsung wireless receiver to fix the problem.

Now to the good part. This is a 2010 model!!! not 09 not 08:) For the price you get-a home theater+ blu ray+ iPod dock+ FM + internet. Produces a great quality sound that really fills up my small apartment. I love the automatic sound calibration option that sets your speaker sound based on distance. I get crystal clear FM and the iPod dock works great with my iPod Nano. Lets be honest, its hard to get a decent home theater system with all these accessories for close to $400.

1)Buy an HDMI and optical audio cable from Amazon (does not come with the unit), some stores charge insane prices.
2)I would highly recommend reading the Anynet guide, just Google Anynet + guide to get it. Will save you a lot of time!
3)The price on the HT C5500 seem to change by $50 in different websites--shop around for the best price.

I spent a solid week researching which surround sound system to buy when i stumbled upon this one. I was also looking at the samsung bd 1250 which was rated pretty good buy cnet. Im guessing this system is an upgrade since its the 2010 model so i assume that means its better. It was delivered yesterday and after getting everything set up im happy to say im satisfied with my purchase. i was sort of worried since there were no reviews out yet due to it just being released. It sounds really good. I haven't had a chance to play around with the online features yet, but im planning on using the built in netflix streaming. Be careful though if you plan to mount the speakers on stands, since it only has a keyhole in the back instead of screw holes.

I have recieved this for X-Mas Present and so far I like it.
When I recieded it I was tad disapointed due to just One HDMI but I figured it out.

My Steup
Fios Cable Box (HDMI)
XBox360 (HDMI)
Wii (Component)
Desktop PC (Component)
They are all conected to my Samsung LCD (LN52A750).
due to Theater and LCD Being samsung, it uses what they call the Anynet+(HDMI-CEC)

I have the Samsung Theater ( HDMI Out) conect to my Samsung LCD.
Then I have the Optical Audio Cable from Samsung LCD to the BlueRay Theater.
and Boom, All of my inputs Audio go to my BlueRay Home Theater.
All you Do is Switch the theater input to D.IN, and anything on my TV will come out
to the Theater thru the Optical Audio Cable. So When I switch to my HDMI inputs
on my LCD, HDMI1 , HDMI2, Which are my Xbox360, PS3, exc..exc... the Audio comes out the Theater.

Front USB
I have over 300 Movies , and Pictures on my external HD, and all I did was plug it in on Front thru the USB and so far I am able to watch 90% of my Movies. a few dont work due to the Divx codect or Avi codect that the Bluray theater cant recognize.
As for the Quaility they look good, If my AVI is HD quaility it looks almost like
bluRay dvd, is all depending on the quaility of my movies (files).

**** As a Geek that I am, I always update the firmware, thats the First thing I did after I had the Theater all Setup.. I went to, went to support and pick out my Model Downloaded the Firmware, Copy to my USB Stick and inserted it on to the Theater and it updated.
