Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Dollar for Dollar Great bank for the buck!!!

GolfGolf 11/27/2019

I bought this at Target for 160 dollars and connected it to the 4K 65 inch TV on sale for black friday. Wasn't expecting to be blown away after watching all the you videos that say you have to spend thousands. It is amazing value wall mounted hidden cables it looks so high end and sounds amazing. Cannot emphasize it enough for a total of 700 dollars you get that Magnolia style product and expectations on a workers budget.

Good, not great Soundbar.

JimXeod 11/1/2019

First and foremost, I do not own a Samsung TV. This review will based solely on the performance as a standalone unit, connected via optical input. It works fine, just unspectacular. It does everything pretty well, just not great. Highs and voices are goo, not great. Bass is good, not great. For a TV it is an improvement, for Bluetooth music these deficiencies really show up. A cheap Bluetooth speaker sounds as good. I am not using this as my sole source, so that is ok with me. I think if I had the ability to pair two sub-woofers it would help, but I don't think I can. I may not want to risk it even if I could, due to the anticipated expense. But, I really think that would help. I had really high hopes for this soundbar based on reviews, and again it it is not bad. But middle of the road is where I would say it is. I have tried every sound adjustment, and the SMART sounds best. For the price, I expected more. I like it, I just wouldn't buy it again.

Poorly integrates with Samsung TV

Maxwell 10/15/2019

I've had this for two months and I don't reccomend it. The sound bar is a couple mm too tall to fit under my 55" Samsung TV, so it has to sit in front on my TV stand. This blocks the IR receiver on the TV so I have to lift my TV remote control all the way above my head and angle it down to get the TV to respond. Very annoying. The connection with the TV is not great. Originally I used HDMI but then got the optical cable. Both ways the sound bar sometimes doesn't sync properly and I often get a slight delay where the sound track gets offset from the video. It's hard to believe the soundbar and the TV were designed by the same company. They seem barely compatible. Very dissatisfied. DO NOT BUY.

A Bargain

glenbob 8/1/2019

Bought this with the $100 surround sound kit. The little woofer was a real surprise. I turn it down a bit so as to avoid irritating the neighbors. Bought all this to go with a QLED Q70 65" TV that already has a pretty good system. However, for music and movies the sound add ons (for about $300 or so) were very worthwhile and I recommend them heartily. Wagner here I come! :)

Nice Soundbar

Spyder62 7/30/2019

This is my first soundbar I've purchased and I have enjoyed it for the most part. Sound is great with music, based on some content on TV I've noticed the sound a little low, and that's based on some not all. Set up is fairly easy with an optical cable included, one HDMI slot(cable not included) power cords for the woofer and soundbar. A micro USB slot, not an actually USB slot, so you need an adapter for it to work and it has to be specific, because I've use a non compatible one, which didn't work, so I would use one of Samsung's recommended versions. Other than that I was satified, I know there's better soundbars but this is nice for what it can do.

Mandcmommy 7/12/2019

We just set this up and we can hear the sound (paired easy with Samsung tv) but can't figure out the remote?? Didn't know how to figure it out or where to get directions for it!? Would love some help.

Rosss 7/1/2019

I bought this sound bar 2 weeks ago and the product is very good at this price range. Sound quality is very good and the bass is good for a mid size room.

bob4estia 5/29/2019

It doesn't come with HDMI cable. The sub bass is non existent at the low frequencies. The subwoofer should perform better at this price.

Nice Soundbar

Mr Butters 5/12/2019

Great sound at a reasonable price. Had checked it out online thru Bestbuy, and decided it was the soundbar for me, despite the product page on Bestbuy showing that no remote was included with this particular model. Was happily surprised to find that it did come with a separate remote as you can change your sound settings with ease. Found setup of the soundbar to be easy without any conflicts. Had purchased a Samsung 49" tv back in January of 18 and the bass would always cut out and would have to turn the volume up to fix each time. Decided it wasn't worth returning the tv for repair, and would eventually buy a soundbar. Wish I had bought one sooner as they're worth every penny.
