Still not sure
We are still trying to decide if we are happy with our purchase or not. One of the primary reasons we bought it was for the "center " speaker that was supposed to help us understand spoken dialog. We are not convinced that there is an improvement. Having said that, we are very happy with the fact that if we need "loud", we can have "loud", it puts out more volume than our small living room could ever use and the base is fun when watching some thriller movies. Shakes the place a little. All in all I guess we are more than satisfied, maybe we expected more than is possible. On another subject, we had a terrible time hooking it up. If my brother hadn't been here from out of town, I might still be trying to figure it out. And the general instruction about the settings lack clarity. I am still not sure what some of the settings are for.

Nice midrange but where is the BASS???
Ok I know I can't match my 7.2.2 home theater with this little thing, but with the bass all the way up and the treble dropped all the way the bass is really underwhelming. Thought I would try to update the firmware but the method on the website doesn't do anything that I can see. Wife says lets send it back, but I hate to do that without living with it for at least a few days, but it does not look good. I have to say that the bar itself is made of metal and is strong enough to use for self defense, but the bass unit with all its size is just weak.

People need to be a little more patient
I bought this soundbar as an upgrade from my HW-M360 series which I had the 8500 series rear speakers connected to which gave me 4.1 surround sound. I wanted 5.1 so I bought the R-650 in order to do so. This soundbar is great you just need to set it up properly and sometimes that takes a little time and patience. This new soundbar, I was upset at first too but then when I figured out how to set the settings and such it is great now. The bass is fine just needs adjustments. I just played some music and the bass was bumping as it does here and there when watching movies and shows.

Sounds great but keeps powering off by itself!
We just bought a new Samsung 65" smart TV and Soundbar, thinking they would be compatible. We love the TV and the sound produced by the soundbar, but like so many others, we have an issue with the soundbar randomly turning itself off. We had the two devices connected optically and have also tried a Bluetooth connection. We followed Samsung's suggestions to "Unsatisfied Georgian" but pressing those buttons on the soundbar's remote do not work for us. This is causing more frustration in our household and we are wishing we had done more research on the product before buying it.

Best for balanced sound
I tried the r550 first and returned it for this model. The r550 has too much bass and the voices sound muffled often. The bass is much more balanced with this model and the center channel speakers make it so that you can hear the voices in movies clearly. I do wish there was an app for iOS and I’m unclear if the surround mode is just for if you’ve added rear speakers.

No compatible rear speakers yet?
I just bought this item with the 9000s rear speakers as recommended by the Best Buy employee. Went home to set up to find out the 9000s rear speakers are not compatible. Later learned when returning the speakers that Samsung has not yet released rear speakers that are compatible with the R650 soundbar.

Sounds better than the TV speakers
Soundbar definitely sounds better than the TV speakers on the Q80, but the sub is a little underwhelming. I have messed around with the setting quite a bit but just can’t get to that wow factor. Wish I would have purchased the HW-Q60R.

Good quality w/slight issue.
I bought this sound bar a few weeks ago. It works fine; good bass, 0-100 sound level setting. The only issue is that it turns on by itself after being turned off. I have to manually unplug the power cord to prevent this from happening.
