I'm used to having a 5.1 setup but this time was looking for something different for our smaller TV room without all the cable mess. Looked into and tested various soundbars which were unimpressive. I gave up and was about to go for another 5.1 system until I came across this Samsung in a shop. The sound was crystal clear (as the branding suggests) and the 3D surround effects were quite impressive considering this is a 2.1 system. I did not think twice and purchased it from amazon. After setting it up at home here are my results in a 5m by 5m room with a Sony 40' Bravia with HDMI audio through my bluray and optical for my cable set-top box:

Pros:
- the sound quality is good, very clear using HDMI but to get a the best out of the system I recommend enabling the 3D surround (but turning off the other sound effects such a cinema, music etc.). Doing so gives you a decent surround sound experience and you soon forget this is a 2.1 system.
-setup is easy. Just connect cables and you are ready to go
-built quality is decent for the price
-value for money

Cons:
- bass could be a bit better. Slightly low but still crisp sound and sw volume can be increased
- Bluetooth via iPad or iPhone works well but sound quality is not great (it is for home cinema after all)
- analogue cables supplied go straight in the bin (why bother including?)
- only 1 HDMI input

Conclusion:
If you are looking for a soundbar at a decent price without sound compromise and crystal clear movie audio then this is a great product and one of the best out there. Surround sound effect is not bad at all.

For those that like a bit more bass I don't think soundbars are the way to go (should really go for bigger 5.1 or 7.1 systems in that case).

I have just received the Samsung HW-E450 Sound System and thought I would offer the following

Quality of the product
The sound is very good - not as good as a sound system costing 4 figures but much better than the TV alone. The build quality seems good and I would imagine the design will fit in with most TVs.

Set Up
It took me some time to figure this out (the instructions supplied are not great) and after much Internet searching I came up with this.

I have a Samsung 8 series LED TV, a skybox, apple TV and a PS3 (which I use as a DVD player mainly). If you connect an optical cable between the TV and the sound bar and an HDMI cable from the "out" HDMI slot on the sound bar to the HDMI 2 (ARC) socket (the 2 ARC bit is important) the sound bar will only come on when it is specifically turned on by the dedicated remote however it will...when turned on by the dedicated remote 1. Silence the TV speakers, 2. Allow its volume to be controlled by the TV remote 3. Whatever source the TV is using will play through the sound bar 4. When the TV is turned off the sound bar will turn off. Much has been made on Internet forums of the drawback of the sound bar not activating with the TV and instead needing to be activated separately however for me this is a benefit (e.g. if my young child is sleeping in the house or if my wife wants to watch TV with the minimum of fuss as she calls it). Note - to use the set up I mention you need to have your own optical cable and HDMI cable - the ones they recommend on the Amazon site work fine.

Service from Amazon
As always superb. The price was lower than I could find it elsewhere and Amazon's courier (DPD) again delivered within seconds of when they had informed me they would (they give hour slots).

Having recently had the Samsung D570 and being impressed with it all round. Here is my comparison;

I have a Samsung 46 inch tv so the d570 width matched better as this one is more the width of a 40 inch tv. To be fair it still looks impressive.

The d570 had a brushed silver look, this is jet black and in my opinion much more modern looking.

Sound wise I think this soundbar is on par or even slightly better than the d570. However, one thing I miss with this one is the booming sub woofer of the d570. I have this one cranked to +6 and I don't think it matches the default boom of the d570.

The d570 came with a wireless iPhone connector that was handy, however, I believe the bluetooth and USB connectivity of this sound bar is far better and much more flexible. The sound via Bluetooth is also very good on my set-up however it does not automatically pair with either the iPhone or iPad and you have to rediscover the soundbar each time you want to connect. I have not tried the USB connector but it is handily placed at the right side of the sound bar.

Connection wise I use an optical cable as my tv does not support arc. It only has 1 optical input as opposed to d570s 2 which is a shame because I would have liked to connect my ps3 via this method also.

The soundbar can be free standing or is wall mountable via the included wall bracket. All cable connections are located at the back of the soundbar. The subwoofer connects to the soundbar completely wirelessly and can be placed anywhere in the room near an electrical point. Both the soundbar and subwoofers electrical leads are hard wired

Finally, my tv remote does not allow you to change the volume of the soundbar which is a shame considering they are both made by Samsung.

Considering the rrp of this unit is £100 less than the d570 then I don't think you can go wrong. Definitely c4rlh.com recommended.
