Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't come with wall mounts for surround speaker Bought this soundbar and found out that wall mounts for surround speakers are not included even though on the website it says wall mount brackets - yes. I've been asked to call the retail store but not sure why Samsung isn't able to help in this case.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent sound! Slightly Tricky setup Firstly I must say the sound quality and volume is impressive. At first i wasn;t keen on a soundbar - this replaces my 3d bluray 5.1 Samsung system. The subwoofer volume (particularly lower frequencies) is far superior and more than enough for most reasonable setups. Price wise it's up there on the high side. It is by far the best soundbar i have tried and probably the best value dolby atmost setup without going ceiling speakers/full setup. Integrates with Samsung TV nicely. Positives: Awesome Sound, looks nice great bass. Negatives: Price. The front LED screen is way too small to be usable, it scrolls through writing and it drives me nuts. This requires a review/update in future models. Features are lackluster but not fussed it has everything i need and i am not a fan of "hall mode" etc anyways. Dolby Atmos - i recommend having or purchasing an xbox one S for this. Samsung TV's don't currently support Dolby Atmos for Netflix etc. Neither does PS4!(or pro). But xbox one s DOES(and has UHD 4k bluray support for dolby atmos 4k movies). Run netflix through xbox and you also get the dolby atmos! :D. AND DOES IT SOUND AWESOME LIKE THE MOVES - YES YES YES. Biggest negative: Setup. OK so follow these instructions and you will be set! Either power up the rear speakers and subwoof THEN turn on the soundbar(they should all connect at once) OR: You need to press the button on the back of the rear speakers for about 10 seconds till fast flashing blue(subwoofer to) do all 3 as quick as you can THEN hold up on the remote for 10 seconds(or press the ID set button underneath the soundbar) this will connect all 3 at once. If you try one at a time it doesn't work(disconnects the first one when you try connect the second one). No more cables for the doggy to chew either! :D Haven't had a proper go with it (about to watch endgame in 4k with my 65" QLED) but so far very impressed once setup and luckily got a xbox one s for a good price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from could be a great soundbar The HW Q90R is a fantastic sounding soundbar when it is working properly. Probably the best sounding bar I have ever heard. The addition of rear upfiring surrounds adds greatly to the overall effect of the unit. This is also the best soundbar I have used for music playback with the sub adding rich bass effect that can make you want to get up and dance (just ask my kids). During movie playback, voices are clear and when using dolby atmos or dts:x sources, it is as close to movie theater sound as you can reproduce in your home without a separate receiver and multiple speakers. I just wish it would work. Seems that a number of these units don't function as they should. My unit is now back at the Samsung repair facility for the second time in 10 days. When you set up the system it works perfectly. After you turn off the system, the next day the sub and surrounds do not produce sound even though the blue light on each speaker shows they are connected. The only solution is to unplug the main soundbar and plug back into power or do a manual setup on all.of the speakers. This has to be done each time the soundbar is turned off or goes into standby. Extremely annoying for a product with as much potential as this one. First trip to the repair facility came back with could not identify a problem, I don't expect much better this trip either. Samsung needs to address this issue _ way too many units out there exhibiting this problem, not just in the US but in many other countries. Av forums and Samsung forums are starting to have numerous complaints. Until this issue is fixed, I cant recommend this product to anyone. Come on Samsung. Is this issue firmware related or hardware related? What are your plans to remedy the problem on these affected units? If this problem is resolved, this soundbar is definitely the one to have if you really want the best sound you can get with a soundbar system. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will not stay connected!!!!! The product will not keep the connection to the sub or the rear speakers. The sound is amazing but it will not stay connected. I have updated the system with the newest firmware update so that is not the issue. Is this a software or a hardware issue??!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Update to my previous review! My rear speakers and sub had connection issues, after seeing a response from samsung on another review, I used the smart things app (preloaded on my S9) and followed directions to download the firmware on the soundbar. Problem Solved... i no longer have connection issues with the rear speakers or the sub.
