Good points:
Very clear sound and great picture quality. Stylish design. All of the features you would expect from a smart device too.
Bad points:
On only the second use it kept switching itelf off with "FAN NG" message on front pannel. After disconecting everything and reconnecting later, the fan started going again and has been fine so far.

Barry, Newark Music listener

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
It looks stylish - but appearances can be deceptive. Take the speaker stands - they look as though they have a spread of speakers in the stand but the truth is that the bottom half is a dummy concealed to fool you. The one good thing is that it works well with my Samsung TV - they simply 'work'.
Bad points:
Where do I begin? The main issue is it is cheaply constructed, and very poorly connected to the outside world. It has internet too - but to use wireless you need to buy a dongle - a SPECIFIC one.
You also need to buy a lot of HDMI cables and the better quality ones don't work! Started researching and this is par for the course with Samsung products.
