never heard one myself. i guess just go check them out. any speaker is better than tv speakers.
the alternative, you can get a simple receiver and 3 small front speakers if you don't want to mess with surround. if you own the house, wire that bitch up and throw in some in walls.
Well I almost bought the Samsung sound bar but they didn't have any stock. It sounded great at the store very crisp and bass response was good. Once I got back home looked on-line that's when I discovered the reviews of the wireless sub cutting in and out which seems to be the only issue.
Yeah I own my house but really just don't want to deal with the hassle of running/fishing wire's through the attic/walls. Simplicity is what I want and the sound bar seemed like the best choice.
