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 starter soundbar

The design is slick black and matches perfectly with the subwoofer -- this is probably the first time I've seen a subwoofer that actually looks nicein a living room.

It also SOUNDS great, as I discovered later, which is more important. Installation is a breeze esp if your TV supports SmartConnect. I have a Samsung Smart TV (6300) which does not support SmartConnect/SmartShare but still it was easy to install. All I had to do was connect an optical cable from the soundbar to the TV. Then I turned it on, the sub recognized it immediately (a little blue light shows you that it did), I chose D.IN (digital in), changed the TV's audio from 'TV speakers' to the soundbar's, and I was good to go! Sound is above average for such a small arrangement with only 2 speakers, and if you're a true sound aficionado you may want to cough up more to get one of the higher-end models that exhibit 'warmer' sound. But for basic television/movies, games and music the sound is more than adequate. It does look great on any living room, especially if you have a special place for it above the television. But even if you don't, you can easily mount it on any wall as the soundbar itself is pretty light (mounting stand and screws are provided). The only negative thing is that the surround sound is pretty much useless. But then, I don't see how surround sound could possibly work on a 2.1 arrangement. Also, there's little difference in choosing 'Music' when listening to music as opposed to 'Standard' (for basic sound effects). But as I said, there is little point to these IMO in general, and one hardly ever uses them. There seem to be some issues with Anynet+ as far as I could see. For example, 'Auto Power' is supposed to allow the soundbar to turn on and off when the TV does, but this feature is not allowed with Anynet+ on... and even when you turn it off from your TV it STILL won't do it, for some reason.

Great Buy

Needed a wireless soundbar for our newly finished basement and did not want to spend a fortune as this is our second home and only used part time. Provides good sound, especially for the price.

Easy to use. Able to attach it to the bottom of our TV above the fireplace so wires between bar and TV do not show.
