Missing Components, Told to Purchase At Extra Cost

Chris 1/1/2022

i received this product for christmas, and the box did not contain the power cable for the subwoofer. after contacting samsung and waiting 3 hours for support, i was told that i would have to spend additional money to purchase the missing ah81-09826a cable. this will be my last purchase of a samsung part ever, and i've been buying their phones since the s5. their support is terrible and the soundbar is decent at best.

Missing Subwoofer Power Cord

Chris 1/1/2022

it came without the power cord for the subwoofer, which seems like a stupid way to save a couple of bucks. soundbar sounds fine, but it's dumb that i have to purchase the power cord separate for the subwoofer, which is half of the purchase.

Great value

Jeremy 11/28/2021

i purchased a new samsung 70" tv and wanted a new soundbar to go along woth it. i purchased a few different models of samsung without going to the most expensive. i was spending roughly around $300-$400 until i found this one. the bass hits hard and the sound is crystal clear. i did pair it with the rear wireless 9100s anf it sounds awesome. less expensive sometimes is better.

Great sound, Issue with smart things app

EM Z 11/22/2021

the sound of this device is great and the subwoofer really does kick. my issue is trying to connect it to my alexa's. it is not listed as a product in the smart things app so i cannot get it connected to be able to pair it with my alexa devices. it's frustrating because i wanted it for music so i have to use it by itself until i figure that out. but as far as functionality, it sounds great!
