Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

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.

Very Pleased

Hogbreath55 3/6/2021

purchased this sb system as an upgrade from an above average entry level sb. we didnt like the voice sound from our old sb, so bought this system--wow what a difference! installation and hook up was a breeze ! spent a hour or so playing with adjustments to tweak overall sound saturation/presentation in our large (22.5 x 17.5 x14.0 high) family room. adjustments went smoothly as we experimented with dvd, live tv, streaming and various audio sources. surround and adaptive are our favorite settings and we are very pleased with the bass, rear speakers, and everything to do with regards to the main bar. wish we had purchased this a long time ago !!!

Timinsuk 11/29/2020

all i can say is...wow! this sounbar was so easy to set up and my smart things app picked it right up. the sound is unbelievable, especially coming from a lower tier soundbar. the subwoofer is amazing and provides a true theater like experience. i highly recommend the hw-q850t and also i find the adaptive mode to work fantastic. you will never miss a word. thank you samsung for another great product!

4 star item and here is why

BuXsta 11/25/2020

- rear speakers are wired to that small blank box which plugs into an outlet therefore wires r still involved + because it has this small black box u dont have to use aa batteries replacing all the time - rear speakers could use more juice to them, the sound is not high watt and rear speaker volume control is not available + when speaker volume is put on loud rear speakers do well + no disconnection so far + alexa works great and links amazon stuff great + sound bar itself it awesome sound quality - tv arc hdmi that goes from bar to tv i noticed a delay so lip sync on screen to bar audio was off but does well with optical an wifi connected audio + bass works too good haha - i love bass but those who dont this unit doesnt have volume bass reduction enough to almost minimize to non

Disappointing

AG87 10/13/2020

i have collectively spent over 8 hours with samsung trying to sort out the issues with this soundbar. firstly, when playing sound through the tv apps the sound cuts in and out every few seconds. secondly, when my xbox is connected directly to the tv i get audio delay when dolby atmos settings are applied. i have to connect the xbox directly to the soundbar. the earc is not doing its job because it is meant to allow sound to transfer to the soundbar without issues. the audio has started to cut in and out on the xbox. i have reset the soundbar multiple times. changed the hdmi cables etc. i had to take it back once and i have just been told that i need to take it back again! given the poor reliability, i will be purchasing a different soundbar.

Over looks and of course sound

Robert 10/6/2020

as i have read reviews one subject keeps coming up . it seems that the rear sound is not loud enough for the system. i thought that the volume control identified as volume , would control the volume to each speaker for individual control. it is to be found at the circle with volume up at the top and volume down at the bottom of the circle . then you can cycle through and adjust each part ,front or back to your needed level. after i found out how to adjust the sound correctly everything fell right into place with great sound with all the volume i needed for a real rich sound . remember you can with the over all volume control raise the volume to as loud as you need which raises the over all volume to the entire system.

ik8sqi 9/5/2020

i replace my 17yr old bose lifestyle 35 system with this as the main bose unit finally failed, and what a downgrade this was... the sound of the rear speakers is practically non-existent. you can barely hear them if you're inches away from them - the sound from the main soundbar completely covers the one from the rear ones even though they're almost 30 feet apart. the "surround sound" advertised is a joke.
