Subwoofer connection bad.
everytime i turn tv on the subwoofer has to be replugged or there is no sub and rear sound.

also been expierencing massive blow from rear speakers a few times.

would not recommend, i would if connectivity wasn’t so bad. it’s the only device using 5ghz band in the house, rest is cable or 2.4 or 5g mobile data.

q symphony is a joke aswell with the 55q90t its more of a hinder lol.

other than that the soundbar is good, but design is poor and not handy.

no signal blocks for the subwoofer so that’s not the problem, it’s the product, too many people have it

only adaptive and standard works with rears.

Sounds Great
hooking up a high quality theater soundbar has been on my list for a long time and i finally had the chance to do that with this product. coupled with a samsung 4k tv, i had no issues with setup and hooking in multiple devices. the sound is great as i've been watching movies and shows and multiple times thought there were people behind me or coming in my place. i am very happy with this product!

A great soundbar.. when it works!
this soundbar is really great when it works, but the issues i am encountering forces me to recommend against purchasing this soundbar.

when using this soundbar, it can sometime work flawlessly for hours, while sometimes noises pop in or out, even after changing the format sent from the tv. restarting the soundbar (full power cycle by unplugging the cord) usually fixes the issue for a few hours, but it is really tedious.

the second issue i am encountering is when connecting my ps5 to the hdmi port of the soundbar. every once in a while the screen will go black and white, and at times the color palette is inverted (green becomes red). restarting the soundbar immediately fixes the issue, but it is also quite annoying.

Too Expensive for Product Quality
I had high hopes for this sound bar, as it is supposed to be the top of the line that Samsung produces, and I had heard good things about it. While the overall quality isn't bad, it fails to live up to the expectations one would expect at the retail price point.

First the good:

- Setup is as easy as plugging things in. Some users reported that if you plug things in the wrong order, the setup becomes very difficult. As long as you follow the order recommended in the manual (sub / rears first), you should be fine.

- The audio quality during movies gives a real theatre experience. If all you want to do is watch movies on this thing, it is a solid choice.

The not so good:

- The engineers at Samsung made a few odd design choices. For some reason, they opted to put the input and selected settings display on the top of the soundbar. The only way to know exactly what you have selected is to either get up, or install and setup the Samsung Things App.

- There was no QR code, or even an obvious reference to the Samsung Smart Things app that is able to control the soundbar. Not a big deal, but at this price point, you should be able to expect every detail to be thought of.

- The rear speakers don't seem to be quite balanced properly.

- None of the speakers can be balanced, and there are no room tuning features that are present on many modern sound systems in this price category.

The bad:

- The soundstage seems very narrow, especially while listening to music.

- The mids and highs have a muddy quality to them, again, especially while listening to music.

- It is pretty obvious that this soundbar is not designed, or tuned at all for music. It's for making explosions shake your home theater. A lot can be done with proper tuning, however, and I feel that the lack of any effort to make this useable for enjoying music is unforgivable at this price point.

Bottom line:

It's a decent soundbar. Possible a great soundbar if you want to watch action movies. It's a terrible soundbar if you want to listen to music. There are flaws in the overall design, including materials, and display layouts. It feels like they missed a lot of important details. Maybe they will make some improvements in future through software updates, but for now, it seems like a lot of buck, for very little bang.

Lacks Quality for Price Point
I was very excited to try this Atmos Bar out, but was left disappointed.

First the good stuff:

- Very easy setup
- It makes you feel like you are in a movie theater
(this is a short list)

The not so great stuff:

- Sound quality is what you would expect at a $500-600 price point
- The bar is tuned for movies, leaving the soundstage cramped, and producing muddy sounding mids during music playback.
- Alexa is so bad, I turned it off. Alexa triggers during dialogue in movies and tv shows, as well as from sound effects (no human voices whatsoever)
- If you sending an audio signal from an older device (one that doesn't support digital bitstreams) or you don't have the digital signal turned on, the bar frequently cuts out for a second or so at a time
- the material seems a bit cheap, and the design isn't great
- they put the info display on the top of the bar, so you either have to stand over the bar to see what the settings are, or use the app making the remote basically useless.

If you aren't an audiophile, or have an audiophiles ear, or you only want this sound bar to watch movies with, it's not a bad choice. However, if you care about sound quality, I would not recommend this bar at this price point. Maybe if it is on sale for under $1000, but I certainly wouldn't pay more than that for this product.

Great sound and it gives room a cleaner look!
Our family wanted to remove all of the surround sound speaker clutter from our previous system and replace it with a good-quality sound bar. The Samsung HW-Q900T Sound bar was the ideal choice because it provided high quality sound with just one speaker and one subwoofer. We tested the sound bar with various action movies that were capable of Dolby Atmos and DTS: X and were very surprised at how well the sound bar did at moving the sound around the room apparently using the walls to bounce sounds off of. The sound bar is capable of providing really loud and clear sounds and dialogue that was pleasing to the ear. It does have a dedicated center channel which makes all of the dialogue very clear and not muffled. We also tested it with everything from standard TV to various music genres in the sound bar did a great job with everything we threw at it.

One improvement that I would suggest to Samsung would be to include on the front of the sound bar a visual indicator of which input it is on rather than place it at the top of the sound bar in which you have to get up to look at to see which input you are on. It would be nice if there was a software update in which the input was at least displayed upon the TV screen because this was poor planning. Other than that, the unit is heavy and durable and very attractive looking and does come with mounting brackets so that you are able to mounted on the wall if need be. The soundbar also comes with Alexa which is only found in the higher-end systems and was a nice addition. All in all, if you are looking for a high-end and high quality sound bar to fill your room with the surround sound, the Samsung sound bar is an excellent choice.

Sound That Surrounds!
This soundbar is absolutely overwhelming in every way. I was skeptical of the claim that this could deliver an Atmos experience as rich and enveloping as a traditional multi-component system. I'm happy to say I was completely wrong, and this soundbar has exceded every expectation. I also have a 2020 Samsung QLED TV, and the Q-symphony feature this soundbar offers is incredible and innovative. It allows you to use the soundbar and some of your TV speakers to create a richer soundscape. I have been using Samsung soundbars for close to 10 years and I can honestly say none of them can hold a candle to the Q900T. If you are looking for a compact device that delivers massive sound, this soundbar will check all those boxes, while immersing you in crisp and vibrant sound.
