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.

Gunmetal..but truly excellent sound and functionality.

First and formost I have to say that when I took the system out of the wrapping I was initially dissapointed to realise that it is gunmetal in colour.

Gunmetal IS silver...but not the bright silver that surrounds my 55ES8000. So you need to plan ahead if you want a match with your existing, I'm assuming Samsung, equipment. I'm getting used to it and I dont think I would would want a bright silver soundbar on display while watching a movie with the lights down... Only two cables are required - the power leads for each component and thats it!!. If your Samsung Smart TV has Soundshare it will connect to the bar via Bluetooth and the bar will 'talk' to the Subwoofer as long as its placed anywhere up to 8 meters. If the speech should be out of synch with the picture..this can be adjusted as well. Loads of sound effect settings are on offer like 'News', 'Cinema', Movie in addition to various '3D' sound settings as well. Bluetooth music straight to the 551 from your smartphone...excellent. Another truly excellent piece of equipment from Samsung where functionality for the customer has been really catered for. Samsung, Please continue this approach.

    Good sound for the price

    Unlike the previous reviewer, (who sounds like he doesn't quite understand how the product works), I had no problems connecting this Bluetooth/Wireless sound bar with my new Samsung F7000 TV.

    This is easily done by optical cable straight from the back of the bar to the connection point on the higher spec. Samsung TVs - Sound Share works perfectly. Sound is good enough. For £269.99, it is not the greatest Sound Bar out there and at the end of the day, you get what you pay for. In saying that, it packs a reasonable punch, especially the deep base from the sub woofer. However, some of the sound effects lack originality and at times authenticity. The design is superb - slim and sleek and you can put the sub-woofer anywhere in the room, even nicely tucked behind a chair. I am sure this will very soon plummet in price with the 2014 models surely soon to be launched......I will probable get another one for the 2nd Samsung TV we've just bought for our conservatory!

      Subwoofer needs a rethink

      I purchased this sound bar 10 days ago to go with a Samsung F8000 TV. It has given nothing but trouble from day 1. I have tried connecting the soundbar to the TV with optical cable - by bluetooth - by HDMI/ARC/CEC cable and there is no way that the subwoofer can be moved more than 3ft away from the sound bar before it drops its connection.

      Samsung advertise the fact that it can be placed anywhere in the room but this is not the case. I am stuck with a huge, ugly box sitting next to my TV to get any sound. Samsung support are next to useless and take you through the same paring exercise time after time, admit that it isn't working but won't do anything or honour its guarantee. I will never buy a Samsung product again, flaky technology.
