Good, not great, but at this price point a real option.
Full disclosure here: I swapped out a beautiful Klipsch speaker system (R26 fronts, center, rear +sub, Yamaha Receiver) for this soundbar to keep the peace with my Philistine wife who complained about the "big, ugly speakers...the things we do for love.
I also write this review after buying the Yamaha YAS-209 soundbar from WWS, which impressed me greatly.
The adage of getting what you pay for is appropriate here, although I have to say that it is an unfair comparison.
This soundbar would be a great option for a bedroom or other smallish space. For the area I'm using it in, (30 x 12 living area), it falls a little short. Its plenty loud, but it wont rattle the walls or annoy the neighbors. The bass is definitely lightyears ahead of the speakers on the TV, but it's not the bone shaking bass that does justice to Ice Cube or the intro to Rush's "The Pass." The clarity of the high and midrange is, again, an improvement by orders of magnitude over the TV, but it juuust misses being excellent. Think Atlanta Braves in the post-season and you'll know what I mean.
All that said, if you want a good system, then this is for you. I'm connected through the HDMI ARC connection, which allows me to us the TV remote for volume control and offers better sound. Setup was a snap-on problems. The sub connected as soon as I plugged it in. Soundfield options are somewhat limited, but they're more than sufficient if simple is your sweet spot.
Overall, a good upgrade. Bedroom, small livingroom, maybe a modest man cave? This will fit the bill. And, for the money, you're not going to feel like your hard-earned cash was wasted. It's a Samsung product, which means it'll likely give you little trouble for a long time (I have Samsung products in most rooms of my house.)
It's a purchase that wont disappoint you if you like good quality in a simple, easy to use product designed for smaller spaces.
Shout out to WWS for offering a wide range of products at competitive prices and fast shipping.

A Bargain
Bought this with the $100 surround sound kit. The little woofer was a real surprise. I turn it down a bit so as to avoid irritating the neighbors. Bought all this to go with a QLED Q70 65" TV that already has a pretty good system. However, for music and movies the sound add ons (for about $300 or so were very worthwhile and I recommend them heartily. Wagner here I come! :)

This is my first soundbar I've purchased and I have enjoyed it for the most part. Sound is great with music, based on some content on TV I've noticed the sound a little low, and that's based on some not all. Set up is fairly easy with an optical cable included, one HDMI slot(cable not included) power cords for the woofer and soundbar. A micro USB slot, not an actually USB slot, so you need an adapter for it to work and it has to be specific, because I've use a non compatible one, which didn't work, so I would use one of Samsung's recommended versions. Other than that I was satified, I know there's better soundbars but this is nice for what it can do.

Sounds great but can’t get the remote to work
We just set this up and we can hear the sound (paired easy with Samsung tv) but can’t figure out the remote?? Didn’t know how to figure it out or where to get directions for it!? Would love some help.

Truly amazing sound quality, beautifully designed.
I bought this sound bar 2 weeks ago and the product is very good at this price range. Sound quality is very good and the bass is good for a mid size room.

Not that impressed.
It doesn't come with HDMI cable. The sub bass is non existent at the low frequencies. The subwoofer should perform better at this price.

Great sound at a reasonable price.

Had checked it out online thru Bestbuy, and decided it was the soundbar for me, despite the product page on Bestbuy showing that no remote was included with this particular model. Was happily surprised to find that it did come with a separate remote as you can change your sound settings with ease. Found setup of the soundbar to be easy without any conflicts. Had purchased a Samsung 49" tv back in January of 18 and the bass would always cut out and would have to turn the volume up to fix each time. Decided it wasn't worth returning the tv for repair, and would eventually buy a soundbar. Wish I had bought one sooner as they're worth every penny.
