Premium 3D Blu-ray Home Theater System
A bit Disappoint
I bought this to replace another brand that stopped updating it's ability to play newer BDs. It works well for that purpose, it plays them all just like our PS3 does, that is good. The problem is compared to the old one, the sound level is weak, the bass from sub-woofer is very weak, not thunderous as claimed. For some reason it requires twice the volume level from our TV to get the same sound from a BD movie. It does have very crisp clean sound though, which is also good. And there is only one sound mode that sounds right, the others I would never use any of them. It could really use another digital input for a CD changer, it only has one extra RCA and 2 HDMI. For a Premium system I expected better. But it's okay, so I give Average rating, because I think it is average.

Good but Glitchy
This system was the best Home Theater System that I have bought. But now (it's been about 6 months) there is this glitch that causes the sound to just stop being heard, and then the system turns itself off and then back on again. This will happen for as long as the system is on. I have tried a hard reset and have tried resetting to factory defaults, still no dice. I am not sure what is wrong, but I am very unhappy with this product.

I've spent some time searching, and searching, and searching for a quality HTIB as opposed to building my own speaker system through AV receivers and the rest of the hassle. I previously had a Samsung HT-EM45 set and it was okay. I dont even think it was 500w. I can say for sure that this system is without a doubt the best I've found. Looking at the higher end LG's, Samsung F series, I kept going back to this one. The sound is crystal clear, and you hear every pin drop from all 5 speakers. The design is sleek, and right out the box you can tell you bought a high quality product. Setup is easy, putting the system together is easy. A couple screws and your pretty much done. The one problem I have is the HDMI-CEC. It acts up where my TV is Samsung Anynet+ and of course the Bravia Sync. It works, but when i change the volume I get two seperate bars on my screen. Overall, OUTSTANDING
