    Major design flaw mars an otherwise nice system
    Pros: sound quality
    Cons: impossible to use only one remote when using hdmi
    Model Number: HW-FM45C
    "First the good. I thought the sound quality was good and certainly far better than my flat-screen TV. Wireless Sub-woofer connected on first try and sounded good as well.
    Here's some design flaws that caused me to return the product. The optical audio input has no pass-through. I can't use this sound bar for my TV and still use my stereo for watching a Blu-ray movie. Also the TV won't control the volume of the soundbar if using the optical input, even though it stated it would and I have a new Samsung TV, that means using the soundbar remote and not your TV remote. Having to use a second remote just to adjust volume doesn't work for me. The bigger flaw is what should have worked but won't. The HDMI-CEC connection. My TV supports this connection and so does the soundbar so my TV remote should turn it on, off and control the volume, which it did! What is the problem you say? When you power off the soundbar it defaults back to the D-in (optical input) EVERY time. In other words every time you turn your TV back on the soundbar won't be on your hdmi setting and you need to find your soudbar remote and press the source button several times to change the input from D-in to HDMI. Once again you are forced to use the second remote even though using HDMI-CEC with a compatible TV should have made it so that you only needed your TV remote. I called Samsung and verified this information as well in case I was missing something. Fatal design flaw in my opinion.

    Great product - documentation so-so
    Pros: works great make sure you update rom and firmware
    Cons: the manual is missing one thing.
    Model Number: HW-FM45C
    "Works great with Samsung TV and Blu-Ray player. Easy to setup. However.... The sub woofer has two lights, one blue that shows you are connected and one that you would think is the power by the symbol but it is not. It is an indicator that the unit is in standby or not. After you power down the bar, about 15 minutes later the red LED comes on. Spent an hour thinking it was defective."

    The best to date...
    Pros: clarity of sound, easy set-up, volume, excellent bluetooth connectivity, price/value
    Cons: no universal code for the remote
    Model Number: HW-FM45C
    "The Samsung is the fifth soundbar I have bought. It is easily the best for clarity of broadcast sound. (The other four, in order of preference: Vizio, Yamaha, Panasonic, Sony). Setup is easy. Two twin-bladed plugs -- one for the soundbar and one for the subwoofer -- and an optical cable. Ten minutes at most. The bluetooth feature connected easily with my laptop and iPad (so that I can play my iTunes collection -- again, with impressive clarity of sound.) The Samsung is in a room that measures 32 x 24, with 9ft ceilings. About half volume is enough. The only drawback is the remote which has no universal code, otherwise I would have given the Samsung five stars. It was, btw, not the most expensive soundbar I have purchased."

    Great Sound but Not Compatible w/Universal Remote
    Pros: great sound
    Cons: not compatible with samsung tv remotes
    "Be aware if you are trying to use this unit with a Samsung TV and expect it to perform as described. The sound of the unit is great, but the described connectivity and functions do not work. The main reason I bought this unit was the compatibility, or so I thought with Samsung TVs. Sure it hooks up, sounds pretty good, but you must use the sound bar remote. Aside from the exclusive functions on the soundbar remote, not even the basic functions will work with the Samsung TV remote. Even when using an optical connection, the auto power-on function works, but the volume controls do not work on the TV remote. I have an UN50H5500 tv and the HW-F45C sound bar (same as HW-F450). I even installed the latest TV software and still not working as described. As I searched the web for clues, and called Samsung Supporto no avail. This seems to be a common complaint of Samsung's Sound bars. Should the volume function work with the TV remote with a future software upgrade, my review would change to EXCELLENT on all levels."
