  • All in one is not all that bad!

    Nov 18, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sound quality, connections, price, and looks darn good!
    Cons: Crappy Samsung speaker connections and wire, no batteries for remote included.

    Summary: I was looking for a simple, inexpensive, small DVD-surround sound system for my bedroom. Since I’m very quality-conscious, it was important for me to purchase a well-made, good sounding, quality piece. The problem with HITB’s (Home Theatre In A Box) ... read more

  • Great sound, needs better design

    Aug 26, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Low Cost GREAT sound quality Many adjustable sound features and presets
    Cons: Poor Ventilation and body design

    Summary: I bought this system in February of 2006 just before the Super Bowl to go along with the big Sony TV I just bought. I bought it because the store had a display out and I was extremely impressed with the sound quality ESPECIALLY for the price! The ... read more

  • Best Home-Theater-In-A-Box For The Money!

    Dec 30, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Feature Set, Style, Small Subwoofer, AUX Inputs, Flexibility.
    Cons: None!

    Summary: I spent a really long time looking at home theater systems, and reading reviews before I actually purchased one, so I had high expectations for whichever system I chose. When it came time to purchase, my budget was $250-$300, but I really wanted to ... read more

  • Good Home theater for the price, a few downsides

    Dec 27, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Adequate to good sound. Plays a good range of disc formats. Good value.
    Cons: No Shuffle feature. No customizable equalizer. Inadequate Fast playback.

    Summary: Overall, I am happy with this system. For the price, the system is definitely a good value. As an earlier review stated, many of these all-in-one systems are glorified shelf-systems with a DVD player. However, the ability to play DIVX, MP3, CD-R/CD-RW ... read more

  • It's pretty darn good...

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Awesome sound, great price
    Cons: No fast forward/rewind button for skippin seconds. You can only skip chapters.

    Summary: This is my fourth surround sound system. I think I have a fascination with them. My first one was a 5-disk Kawasaki system putting out only 135 watts. Surprisingly, the sound wasn't bad for tv and cds, but for movies-not good in 5.1 mode. But this was ... read more

    Pros: Compact, sound quality good
    Cons: Poorly constructed DVD player

    Summary: Overall, I really like the Samsung HT-P38 except for a cheaply assembled DVD player; several discs it will not recognize (even some brand new ones) and others it will play about half way through and then freeze. I sent it back to Samsung who supposedly ... read more

    Pros: Price, features
    Cons: Refuses to recognize most DVDs.Remote cannot be programmed for our HD digital cable box.

    Summary: Overall, we were pleased with the Samsung home theater when playing CDs, but trouble started when we tried to play a rental DVD from Netflix. So far, we have not viewed a single movie on our "new" player (purchased to get better sound with our new HD ... read more

    Pros: It matched my television and was reasonably priced
    Cons: Doesn't match up to my home stereo. Difficult to get it to progressive scan.

    Summary: I bought this unit because we were looking to get better sound from our movies. After plugging the system in (which is pretty user friendly), we were looking forward to playing with out new toy. We tried a dvd on and quickly realized that the picture ... read more

    Pros: The sound is really good
    Cons: Faulty DVD player

    Summary: I bought two of these systems as Christmas gifts for my husband and son. My sons works fine so far. After getting my husbands all set up and the speakers mounted we discovered the DVD doesn't work properly. It doesn't recognize any disc in one and two ... read more

    Pros: The unit delivers clear crisp audio.
    Cons: Unique Samsung speaker jacks on the rear of the DVD player.

    Summary: This unit has a lot of bells and whistles for the price. The 800 watt sound output delivers high level crisp audio. The sub-woofer performs well even at low levels. The FM tuner is sensitive and provides for setting 15 stations in the memory. The ... read more
