Awesome Sound system

Fantastic sound for a 2.1 system. Not a true surround sound, but I didn't care about that. Has tons of bass, and lots of great mid and high sound . Can easily put all other sound Bars to shame,and even most full Surround sound systems in this price range.

False advertising

I bought this unit solely for the "Wireless" Sub. I was planning on putting the sub-woofer in the back of my room. Upon un-boxing this product I found out that all the cables had to be wired to the sub-woofer. I am very disappointed in this Samsung product

nice soundbar


after looking for days at sound bars I settled on the H550 it had all the features I was looking for I hooked it up in under 30 min and the sound is great for a small size bar I have it with my 60 in sony 850 very crisp and clear sound even the voices are clear the sound fields are very good also could use a bit more thump from the sub for tv watching but with a Blu-ray playing this bar rocks and there is plenty of thump there turned up the volume during a movie to 25 and my floor was shaking and I have a good size living room overall I am very happy with this unit it`s a keeper...thanks Samsung




Underwhelming quality considering the cost and constant subwoofer issues.


Great Versatile Sound Bar


I researched a lot of sound bars before picking the HW-E550. For my purpose, it was the perfect fit. The ability to use it as a straight bar, or split it into a 2.1 is very nice. Setting up the unit was easy, takes about 45 minutes to setup, including unboxing and removing all the protective wrapping etc. Since I have a very old HD cable box, I had to use the digital optical cable from by cable box to the unit. My blue ray and Wii U are hooked up using the (2) HDMI inputs. Everything plugs into the sub, so the sub is not completely wireless. This wasn't a deal breaker for me since I have long cables and have read the many reviews stating this. My family room isn't very big so the sound is excellent. It is not true surround, but it fills the room nicely. The sub packs plenty of punch. I have a Samsung TV, so the anynet features work great. Can use TV remote for virtually all functions of the sound bar. Overall, couldn't be happier with the purchase of this unit.


great sound for the size


easy to use very good sound nice to have different speaker setups


easy too setup


nice little system,sounds good for a sound bar and sub, have a larger system also but takes up alot of space that this one dosn't.


Love this sound bar


Makes a huge difference in the experience. Like sitting in a movie theater. Sound is exceptional.


Wireless Sub?????


The reason I, and I would suspect anyone else, has bought this particular model is the claim of its "wireless subwoofer". This could not be further from the truth. In reality, the subwoofer has at least three wires required to make it work. Obviously the power cord is necessary, but it also requires an HDMI in and out. How is that wireless? False advertising tricked me into buying this product and now I have to pack it back up and take it back to the store. Just what I wanted to do tonight. Stay away from this setup unless you want your sub mounted next to your tv with 2 HDMIs hanging on the wall.


Best Sound Bar for the Money


I own a samsung 55 inch hdtv and wanted a same brand sound bar. The product works exactly as I wanted.


Great Product


Great sound quality smooth design i love this system


Excellent Product


My only complaint with this Sound Bar is that it defaults back to Digital In signal. Once i figure out how to fix that, it'll be complete 5 star rating on everything.
