Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

Excellent soundbar with new-technology flaws

It's tough to tell how well a soundbar will work until you have it in the intended space. I gambled a bit by ordering my HW-F550 online, but got it at a great sale price.

I love the low-profile design and clean look, particularly with the LEDs and speakers fully hidden behind the grille, and appreciate the multiple inputs (HDMI, optical, USB, minijack, Bluetooth). I mostly rely on an optical connection from my TV, which enables the soundbar to power on when a digital signal comes in. The Bluetooth also works very well and connects without issue, but I expect that in this day and age. Sound quality is good to my ears, but that's personal. I generally prefer clarity over thump, particularly for television. Voices are always clear and easy to hear, and music fills the room easily when I want it to. My three main issues with this unit are the same as for most soundbars, and I expect that they'll be solved in the next generation or two: 1. They are not compatible with most universal remotes, so I can't program my DVR remote to control the volume, as would be the case with a typical audio receiver. 2. It appears that manufacturers have not settled on a standard for HDMI-ARC communication, so I can't get my HW-F550 to work smoothly with my 2013 TV from another major manufacturer, despite both having HDMI-ARC. 3. Although the soundbar turns off when it senses inactivity, the wireless subwoofer always draws power. I've solved this issue with an energy-conserving power bar that turns off everything except the DVR when the TV is off. I have two minor issues specifically with the HW-F550. First, the remote control is...ugly. It doesn't match the design appeal of the sound bar, and all of the extra buttons to control a Samsung TV are unnecessary. You're not going to use this remote to control your entertainment system...as noted, I only need it to raise and lower the volume. A simpler remote that matches the aesthetic would be more pleasing. Also, there are firmware upgrades, but the instructions are a little convoluted due to there being two separate files that have to be loaded in a certain order. Nice to have firmware upgrades, but it should have been simplified into four steps: download file, put file on USB, plug in USB, turn on soundbar. It might sound like I'm complaining, but overall I'm really pleased with the HW-F550. For the most part, I don't have to think about it, and that's what I'm looking for in this type of product.

Great sound

So I will update my review, Samsung has come clean now and lists the F550 sound bar SMART ON function to work on 2013 TVs, this is now clear and my previous complaint was with my 2012 TV.

Now they have made it clear, whereas previously it was not clear, but my money is already spent!! Aside from not being able to power the unit on, I love this sound bar.
