Samsung HT-X810 - Getting There!,
on 2 November 2008
"Pros: Looks great with my piano black Samsung 42" Plasma, very neat with no wires, S/W is wireless and was picked up first time when switching it on. DVD Upscaling is quite a bit better than my ordinary Samsung DVD/VHS Recorder which I still have connected. Playing MP3's from my Samsung G600 Mobile phone via Bluetooth is quite cool for visitors to see and very easy and handy to do. It has dropped the signal a very few times, but not too many to annoy me yet. I have connected a HDMI cable from the soundbar to my Samsung 42" Plasma TV, the picture from the upscaling DVD player is very impressive and the sound is fantastic, you feel as if the sound was all around you.
Cons: S/W can be a bit overpowering but by using the sound edit button on the remote it can be adjusted and this can be annoying. I set the S/W to "0" when listening to the FM Radio. Remote control is poor compared to other Samsung remotes, buttons are too small and it is easy to press the wrong button.
Overall: It really surprised me, didn't think it could be as good as my old 5:1 system but I am really happy with it except for the bother of adjusting the S/W and the remote. I haven't connected my iPod Touch yet but it shouldn't be a bother. I have quite a few USA DVDs & got the Region Free code online and it plays the US THX mastered DVD's really great. Gets 5 stars from me for invention, Upscaling DVD, wireless S/W, bluetooth and USB connectivity and its excellent looks."
