Improves sound quality 100%,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung HW-F350 40 inch Soundbar with 3D Sound Plus (Electronics)
I purchased this soundbar a few weeks ago so have had plenty of time to experience it's full potential. Firstly you need to purchase an optical digital cable to connect it to your tv ( this is not included ). This will give you the best possible sound quality. Previous reviews have said it can sound echo-y. I find it's more of an enhancement of the sound than echo-y. It's no longer of a struggle hearing the speech when watching a movie. I only use my soundbar when watching movies because I believe this is what they are designed for and not for listening to the news,etc. As I am writing this review I am watching iron man 3 and the sound is amazing. You will hear sounds that you will have never heard before through your tv. You do need to tweak with the settings on your remote to get the sound that suits you. I have mine set to cinema effect. I have turned the subwoofer level set to +4 to give a deep bass sound and have increased the audio sync so the lip sync and sound match up. The problem with a lot of the reviews on here are that people don't set their soundbars up correctly. If you don't change any of the settings you probably would be dissappointed. My advice would be to play around with the settings and get the sound effect that suits you best. I cannot fault this soundbar especially for its price, there probably are far better ones on the market like Bose, Sonos, etc but you will have to pay top end price. If you are looking for a reasonable priced soundbar that will improve your movie watching experience then this is definitely for you.

With regard to the the echoing sound some people refer to, I believe it is where they have not turned the TV's own speakers down, this can exhibit itself as delay or echo. So anyone reading this might want to try turning the TV's sound off or down when using the sound bar, it might work.

Thanks for the great insightful review. I for one am not keen on spending £300-£400 on a sound bar. As long as it doesn what it says on the tin for a reasonable price then I'm happy.
