    I received my order and installed today, 11/16/15. I chose to order this set-up from the “Warehouse Deals” section. There were no problems with any of the contents. Everything was packaged and secured effectively. I am extremely satisfied with the ease of installation which, is just plug and play. The sound and looks of the Blu-Ray player/speakers are exceptional too.

    Each speaker is labeled on the back indicating where it should be placed in your room. The ‘Surround” speakers (2 of them) that go behind you in opposite corners have extra wire connected for the added distance. Each speaker and the sub-woofer have pre-installed, color coded plastic connectors on the ends that plug into the Blu-Ray player which is also color coded and labeled for ease of install.

    You will need to buy an HDMI cable (there is only 1-connection on player) and a digital optical cable. The ONLY cord that comes in this package is the Power cord for the player (each speaker has it’s pre-installed wire). A remote is also included but when I used my Dish Network satellite remote for the volume, it controlled the Blu-Ray player automatically. I assume this is because my TV is also a Samsung…

    I would recommend this product to a friend and wouldn’t hesitate to buy another one when needed for an additional room in the house.

    The overall quality,and sound of the product is very good. I have it set up in my apartment living room and it fills the area with plenty of sound. While I am very pleased with some aspects of this product there are a number of disadvantages.
    First is the speaker/ speaker wires. Unlike standard speakers the wire is fastened to the speaker itself which means you must splice to lengthen and on top of that the other end of the wire is a custom fitting which plugs into the receiver (I will say though the color coding is a nice touch).
    Second off is the lack of connections. If you plan to hook up multiple devices you must buy an assortment of adapters to make it work.
    Third disadvantage is that this does not connect to the internet so to listen to anything you have to have it hooked up to the system.
    Fourth might be because I haven’t figured out how yet but when you plug an iPhone or Computer into the analog (using an RCA to 3.5mm adapter of course) you will only get audio out of the front 2 speakers (and the bass with the computer).
    There are some other nit picky things that I did not like but these were my top cons. Overall I am kinda happy with the product but the lack of features, usability and ease is very annoying. I will also say this is my first HTS so there was a bit of a learning curve but I am very tech savvy and it was still a bit difficult for me.

    ————- UPDATE (11/17/15) ————

    I’ve had the system now for roughly 2 months and things are running smoothly. I have primarily been using it with my Xbox One through a Toslink (SPDIF) cable to watch Netflix, listen to Pandora etc… and it is pretty freaking awesome. While the system does have its drawbacks, the sound quality is exceptional considering the price which is why I changed my review from 3 stars to 4 (I would’ve given 3.5 but I cant). I honestly think it could hold its own against a mid-range system strictly in terms of sound quality but the reason this one is so much cheaper is because this one has hardly any connections and no access to the internet (unless you have ANYNET or whatever but like most of you, I don’t). If you’re considering this system because of the price, be careful because you might end up paying for it in adapters, converters and other compatibility s***. If you have multiple devices that you’re considering using with this, I would highly suggest sitting down and creating a device map of some sort with the connections you will be needing. As an introductory product to the HTS realm I would probably recommend this to someone; depending on how good they are with electronics and how many devices they’re planning on plugging into it. If you’re looking for a HTS that will be relatively cheap, sounds great, be straightforward, and will only be hooking this up to 1 or 2 devices (assuming of course that they’re both different connections) I’d say this is definitely the right product for you.

    An insight for using a (any) computer with a HTS. The computer must have a sound card which supports 5.1 audio. If it doesn’t, regardless of the connection you’re using you will only get LR audio, or in other words only the Left and Right speakers (on the HTS) will output sound and if you’re lucky MAYBE the sub woofer will play too. However, even if your computer doesn’t support 5.1 audio there is an option of getting an external sound card that looks promising but I don’t have one nor have I used one so I cannot attest to their functionality.

    For the money this is a great system. I have it set up exactly the way the manufacture suggests and couldn’t be happier. It really puts you in a movie. You will not be disappointed at how load this thing gets.
