Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst soundbar ever I purchased this soundbar because of all the promises made by Samsung but it doesn't even compare with my old Phillips 2.1 soundbar. The rear speakers don't make a sound & the subwoofer cuts in & out. The sound overall is extremely average. I wasted nearly $2k on this very dismal piece of so called technology. As I live in country Victoria, I will now have to pay a further few hundred dollars to transport it to a service centre ... Considering it is effectively dead on arrival, the whole scenario is nothing but painful & costly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Keeps loosing connection with sub and rears I purchased the Q90R from Harvey Norman in Australia four days. When it works it sounds amazing. But unfortunately, it drops the connection with the wireless subwoofer and rear speakers every time its turned off. I'm forced to go through the annoying procedure of re-pairing them each time, and even then its hit and miss. Weirdly, the speakers still show a solid blue light indicating it is paired but they are most definitely are not. Whats concerning is that there are numerous reports of this issue on avforums and I noted another customer here, who purchased from the same retailer as me has reported the same problem. So it seems the problem is not isolated. Curiously, the biggest electronics retailer in Australia, JB HiFi, had the Q90R in stock two weeks ago but now its not even listed on their website.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great Sound, Poor Connectivity and Service I bought this soundbar 5 days ago, the sound is really good if you have an ATMOS input. However, I'm really frustrated with the rear surround speakers which doesn't work when you turn on the TV the next day. I always need to power cycle (turn on/off) the mains supply to the surround for it to work again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant The audio you receive from this sound bar far exceeds any sound bar I have ever owned with the added dual surround sound speakers you get incredible surround sound with amazing clarity. I would recommend this sound bar to anyone who is in the market for a great quality audio system with little to no cable management

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wireless rear speakers and sub keep disconnecting I purchased this product yesterday after looking around and testing various soundbars. What impressed me was that this set up is true 7.1 with Atmos and also includes wireless rear speakers. I also own a 2016 Samsung 4K TV and thought this would compliment the set up. The surround immersion is amazing (for the 5 minutes it's worked properly). I've had nothing but trouble with this complete package though. Watching a movie and the rear speakers and subwoofer will randomly disconnect. I then pause the movie, follow the troubleshooting steps to reset and resync the speakers, it works for a few minutes and both disconnect again... Really frustrating for the money spent on this. Tried turning off from the power and re setting up and still same issues. As I'm writing this all that is working is the front speaker. Tried to reach webchat for troubleshooting and I get a page saying to chat in the country I purchased in. I'm in Australia and purchased from Harvey Norman.
