Sound is amazing - on a par with the far more expensive systems. Plenty of cable for the rear speakers also.

No 3D as yet ... although I'm sure a firmware update in the future will sort that out.

A very neat and stylish product that delivers a fantastic surround sound experience coupled with vibrant picture quality. The four tall boy speakers make positioning easy. Being not very technically minded I found that, with careful reading, all was...

It did take time and effort to connect to the internet. I had to delve into areas of my computer that I was totally unfimiliar with. But it was a learning experience and I got there in the end.

Bass is good, speakers are clear. The height stance is tall, centre speaker is amazing. Blu ray player is fast loading. Overall sound is impressive. Nice long cables for rear hook up. Superb audio vs price. Blu ray picture is very nice. And appealing...

Very easy to set up, all connectors colour coded, auto set up using included microphone produced good results straight away. Really brings Blueray and sky HD to life.

Can't really think of any.... Except if you are watching a dvd and go to the setup screen, the film reverts back to the beginning (only an issue when first changing set up) eg changing to different picture res.

Samsung Quality was as expected and it has lots of features that work well.

Clarity was missing as to whether an optical cable should be used between the TV and the home theatre system or whether HDMI was all that was needed. During the initial installation, the manual whilst helpful to a point, required searching and then...

this unit has all the features you would want from a small home theatre unit. at a good price I have my freeview and freesat units connected through this unit. and it really enhances the audio from films.

this unit supposedly has internet access it worked the first time I tried it Utube was actually very good, But now it just sits there saying connecting and does nothing. it has automatically upgraded the firmware twice over the internet connection so...
