Great HTIB for the price
I was looking for a HTIB with wireless rears. I eval'd both the Samsung HT-F5500 and the LG BH6830 while making my decision. I thought that the Sony had the easiest GUI, easiest set up and looked the sleekest compared with the other two. For the price, they were very comparable so it came down to sound quality and aesthetics.
You cannot go wrong with this set-up. I would definitely recommend this system to anyone looking for a HTIB with wireless rears.

Netflix does NOT work!
Bought this last year (at nearly twice the price that they currently have), primarily for the wireless rear speakers. Seemed to work okay until the first firmware update, then Netflix would attempt to load a movie then dump to the main menu. Been on the phone for hours with Sony, created at least two tickets with their customer NO-service and the crazy thing still does not work. In looking at the service discussion board (at http://community.sony.com/t5/Blu-Ray-Netflix-Online-Video/BDV-N790W-Netflix-shows-start-loading-but-never-finish/m-p/257765#M6296) I am definitely NOT the only one with this same issue.
For sound, this unit is very much substandard to the older Sony that I keep. My recommendation - find something else!

A great system for non-audiophile users. It is easy to set up; the main unit and the speakers look great; the wireless surround receiver and rear speakers work beautifully.
It is lacking a little base. But for the price and the intend of this system, there is enough base from the sub. Just remember, this type of HTIB system is designed for small living room rather than a decked out home theater in a multi-million dollar home, so don't expect over the top performance. For what it is though, the sound is very clear and video quality is fantastic.
