Samsung HT-F4500 5 – Good sound quality!

Quality hi-tech product from a trusted hi-tech manufacturer. Beware of on-line american youtube reviews which suggest the unit can go wi-fi with the addition of a compatible ‘dongle’. This refers to the usa version – the uk version with the same name/number has no wi-fi input – you have to use ethernet direct cabling. (which is better anyway and cheaper, even if less convenient)the sound and picture quality are amazing. The speakers can be easily adjusted to your personal preference in seconds – excellent.

Great value for the money all the sound you need for watching big movies i have to turn the sound down.

Hubby loved it for christmas only draw back is buying more leads but overall good sound quality happy with purchase.

Clarity at volume is brilliant at this price. Absolutely delighted, i’ve a small living room but this would do a fairly large sized room i think (unless your looking to deafen yourself). Bass from subwoofer equally impressive. Probably the best value for money on amazon for a surround sound system (5. Goes great with samsung 40″ 3d led tv.

Yes it sounds ok, but i wanted to connect my s3 to listen to my songs. It says bluetooth in the review but their is no bluetoothnot happy, i should have checked this out before buyingbut you believe whats on here?.

I give this 5 stars ,it’s well worth the money, was easy to set up and the sound quality is great, to loud for the room i brought it for,my only negative comment is that the product turns up with no extra packageing so if left some where everyone can see what it is,amazon issue not product. I will be purchasing another in very near future.

Upgrade your DVD HTS –

Good sound quality and a smart looking bit of kit. Only downside was that the rear speaker wire was a tad too short to be ideal. Annoying as i dont exactly have a huge lounge so for it to be too short is rather poor.

Bought as a birthday present. They are delighted, very easy to set up and exactly what they wanted. Very quick delivery and a great price.

Very good, good sound quality, unfortunelty cables for rear speakers are not long enough so need to extend further.

Make sure this fits
by entering your model number.

Bought this to go with my new 3d tv. Sound is awesome, smart feature don’t need got it on the tv but i can play 3d movies on my 3d tv.

This is an excellent piece of kit super sound and great connectivity would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants great surround sound.

The seller was brilliant and it arrived prompt and well packaged. The system itself is my first delve into surround sound, after looking around at many others, friends soundbars and demonstrations in pc world, i decided to take the gamble and i am not dissapointed in the slightest. It has a few cool things such as the ‘tv sound’ button which plays whatever your watching on normal tv through the speakers and also a usb port. There are extensive settings where you can adjust the decibels of each individual speaker so you can tweek it to how you like, few downsides but nothing to put anybody off at all, they are the wires, you get decent length but there not exactly invisible and we have wood floors so no carpet to hide behind, and theirs no bluetooth. It links nicely with my samsung tv which is a few years old but has the ‘anynet’ feature which just means you can control it with both controllers, highly recommend and im a sony fan. Oh no matter what system you buy make sure you buy an optical cable, makes it far easier. 2 metre premium toslink digital optical spdif audio cable – digital audio cable , compatible with ps3,sky hd, hdtvs, blu-rays, av amps, superior-grade optical fiber to deliver better clarity and transfer digital signal i bought this one, if you can find cheaper go for it.

Enjoy your favourite movies and TV series whenever you like with Netflix and BBC iPlayer

Good long cables so we can put speakers around the room.

The centre speaker on other systems look bigger than the other speakers in the set, i can’t imagine that there is no good reason for this and having tried my f4500 i think that maybe the other systems benefit from this. I find that there is no control over the sound i. Other than the volume of each speaker, hence i can’t set the sound up exactly to my liking. It’s ok for films but not so good for normal tv hence the 3 star rating. I think i would recommend spending a bit more in the hopes of getting something with better control of sound quality.

It is a very good system, sound quality is top notch and the picture quality. Its samsung, so need i say more?. My only issue is, people have been reviewing saying “normal tv sound isn’t up to scratch” if someone could inform me on how to use it with just standard tv use, that would be very helpful. I gave it 3 stars as the setup was a bit of a b***h, i set the correct speakers to the correct color coded sockets, and still the speakers were playing in random formation (eg, center would play from surround left) managed to sort it out in no time though, but surely this is a problem with the unit?.Anyway, apart from that, setup was pretty straight forward for someone who has intermediate experience setting up sound systems and dvd players. All in all, if you know how to set something like this up, and your on a tight budget, sound isnt fantastic, but still really good, and picture quality on bluray is unbelievable.

Very pleased with this product and seller. The dvd player site very nicely with our samsung home cinema system speakers and the sound is clear and picture crisp. Great purchase at a very reasonable price for a replacement system. The bonus for us is the ability to connect to our home network to watch films and programmes via netflix. We’re now ‘hooked’ on breaking bad.

Compliment your 3D visuals with amazing 3D and 5.1 surround sound

Easiest system to set up with built in help files. Good quality as to be expected with any samsung product. Highly recommend this to anyone, especially if you are not particularly technically minded. It just automatically connects to existing smart/3d tv’s and pc’s with no fuss. Does exactly what it says on the box.

Had this surround sound for a month now and it is a great sound, so clear and the bass is awesome. It’s so easy to set up and use. Very fast delivery, highly recommended product and seller.

Very pleased with this purchase. Watching something like band of brothers on blu ray on this system was amazing. I felyt like ducking in the battle scenes would recommend.

This is probably the best value blu ray you can buy. Very easy set up and surprising quality at 135 quid including delivery.

Very satisfied with product, great sound. Easy to set up however i would have appreciated longer wires at the back.

Worth the money and already in use.

    I received this as a christmas present in 2014. It worked ok until a few weeks ago when it suddenly started to turn itself off, just once a day to begin with, but got to the stage where it was happening 5 or 6 times a day. As the tv sound comes through the speakers, this was getting very frustrating. Also the word “protection” was scrolling across the front before it turned itself off. I thought there might be a loose connection somewhere, so disconnected all the speakers and checked all the wires, nothing wrong there. This didn’t solve the problem however. I emailed samsung as i was a bit concerned about the word “protection” coming up all the time. Their reply was to tell me what i’d already told them i’d done. No mention of my main concern. Long story short, i’ve ordered a different system on amazon.

    This home theatre is well worth the money great value for the money.
    1. No wonder its discontinued, its rubbish. I have had several surround sound systems over the years and this is by far the worst. Samsung, i have found, is usually a good product but this is difficult to work from the hand set, does not do all that a surround sound system should do (like provide surrond sound while watching tv 🙂 so if you are considering buying this from a third party, avoid it and look at some thing else.

    1. For the first couple of months this worked fine. Sound was great and 3d picture did not disappoint. It then started shuting down intermitently. It was updated but still shut down when it felt like it. It is going back but its really annoying running all the cables and hanging the speakers and then being told there isnt a replacement just a refund.

  6. I bought this due to liking the quality of samsung’s phones and monitor’s. The build quality is average and the components are low budget. The main dvd/blu-ray/receiver/amp unit has a cheap loud cooling fan fitted and is a constant annoyance. There is not one good comment that i can give to this product.

    1. I have just bought the f4500 to compliment my samsung 46″ smart tv and as the tv has all of the smart facilities included i felt that i didn’t need the next model up and i was right as the f4500, combined with the tv do everything between them. The f4500 is a doddle to set up straight out of the box, although an hdmi cable will be needed as this is not supplied. The picture quality and sound are excellent and it looks nice underneath the tv. However, there appears to be a major design flaw with the speakers as they only have a (very) small keyhole fitting on the back of them and i have looked everywhere (without success) to find a) wall brackets that have small enough keyhole adaptors and b) keyhole fixings that have a small enough head to fit into the keyhole itself. Even if you could find keyhole fixings small enough, i am not sure if they would be sufficient to hold the weight of the speakers. You may want to take this into consideration if you are intending to buy this model and want to mount your speakers on the wall.

    A little noisy (sounds like a low wind) on the quieter progs. You may watch but not a major issue.
