  • A. The sound bar and the subwoofer plug into an outlet for power. The sound bar connects to your tv via optical cable or hdmi. The subwoofer is connected to the sound bar wirelessly. So it still uses cables, but the subwoofer can be placed further away from the rest of the system if you'd like.

The description of this refurb unit says it has 1 audio input and 1 HDMI output. Meanwhile the document you can view says it has HDMI input and output, 1 audio input and 1 optical input. Need the optical input but can't determine if this unit has it or not...very confusing. Is this refurb unit an HW-E450C or not? Can't tell from conflicting descriptions.

  • A. 1 HDMI INPUT, 1 HDMI OUTPUT, 1 OPTICAL INPUT, one 3.5 AUX INPUT, and USB Input. Don't forget it does have Bluetooth so that is an input also. My order included all the cables for these inputs. Impressive for refurb. See review I posted.

  • A. The C is on boxes that come with an HDMI cable, mine came with an HDMI cable and an optical Audio cable, a USB short extension cable and an audio in like headphone jack port(in). This is exactly same thing as HW-E450, and if you use HDMI (ARC) u need to only use the HDMI out. Well worth it, at least mine is perfect no scratches no problems.

I have an older Samsung soundbar (2years older),and it STILL sounds great... I wanted another soundbar ,so decided on the Samsung HW-E450 40" AirTrack AudioBar with Wireless Subwoofer and HDMI Cable, Refurbished .... The price was reasonable and the hook up was easy... The sound is fantastic.. I am very pleased and would recommend this product to anyone..... The only problem I thought I might have had was with the site to store shipping... The box arrived broken,looked like someone hit the box during unloading and put a towmotor fork through the box... Turns out my worries where for not...everything works fine... I hope someone in shipping and receiving reads this post and takes better care with the item while shippoing/handling them.. Thanks for reading..................

Works Perfectly. Love the Blu-tooth function. Great for my Phones and Computer and any other product that has blu-tooth . I have a JVC but would recommend either the Samsung unit with BT or the L.G. Unit with the B.T.

I'm using this with a Samsung TV, so that could affect my overall impression of this unit, as it's set-up to work well together. Initially was not happy with the choice of preset EQ's.......not quite enough treble. After much fiddling, got it sounding pretty good. Using the 3D sound setting disables other presets, didn't like it at first, but after a few DVD's, it sounds OK, & can just leave it on. The lighted display is too small, but at least it has one...would prefer an OSD. The unit has 2 auto-volume controllers, DRC & Smart Volume. I leave the DRC on for all TV, & usually have to add the Smart Volume for dramatic DVD's....in most cases, that works for me, so far. Package comes with optical & hdmi cable, so that saves you some bucks, especially since you'll need them both for quality sound. Discovered that the remote is more elaborate than most, so that's good. Set-up was fairly easy, tho' I had to reset the subwoofer to get it working. Manual should be more detailed. System looks like new, can't figure out why it's re-furbished.......may still consider adding the extended warranty to be safe. Comparing this unit with the Vizio VHT215 re-furbished one (highly rated), that one probably sounds a little better, & has one more hdmi input, which could be important to some, but this one is $30. less, has the 2 cables included, & is quite similar, so I'm leaning towards this one as a better value. I guess for the money, you can't go wrong. Will add more later if anything comes up.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

My TV is wall mounted over the Fireplace and I didn't want a multi-speaker system that would require drilling holes or hanging wires. I started looking for wireless speakers. After few days of research, I settled on four speaker wireless system, but read that wireless connectivity sometimes interferes with WiFi. So I decided to go the Sound Bar route. I have been eyeing this product for over 6 months; I put in on my Amazon Wishlist and expected the price to come down. It hasn't. And right when I was about to buy it anyway, I decided to check Walmart. So instead of $270, I bought it refurbished on Walmart for $148 with a 2yr $20 Warranty. So I'm pretty happy about that. Now on to the product review... So far so good. Great sound and I configured it to my Samsung TV so I can use one remote to control both. And it turns on and off with TV. I'd definitely recommend it.

I purchased this speaker bar and woofer to go with the Samsung 40" TV I purchased and it arrived yesterday. I incorrectly thought it would attach to the bottom of the TV just as some computer speaker bars attach to the bottom of the monitor. I was wrong and the manufacturer's data did not define it. The bar is made to be attached to the wall in the vicinity of the TV. After connecting the speaker bar to the TV, the speaker bar could not make a wireless connection with the woofer and there is no provision to wire the woofer to the speaker bar. Therefore, no sound from woofer. Contact with the manufacturer indicates they want me to pay postage to return their bad product to them. I said no, either it is free or I return it to Walmart. Now awaiting a response.

I brought the Sound Bar (SB), because I have a Samsung TV, (46" 120 hz, mdl 6000) and a Samsung Blue-ray DVD player. I thought by buying a Samsung SB, everything would work on one remote. Sad to say that didn't happen, at least not with the 6000 series TV. After two weeks of looking on-line, being at the Samsung site, trying digital cable, HDMI Ethernet cables, best I could get is the SB turning on when I turn the TV on, and that's it. It does not turn off unless I use the SB remote, or 20 minutes have lapse. I have to use the SB remote to raise or lower sound. Also, the SB does NOT have an equalizer build in it, other then accepting the factory pre-set sound (Very deep tone). You have to select one of the effect sounds, i.e. Music, News, Drama, Sports, etc. So you have to pick something that sounds best to you, but you can not change anything to a sound that you prefer. The TV does have an equalizer, but it does not work through the SB, that would've worked to boost the okay TV sound to something better. All in all, I would've passed if I knew all this before hand.

Major improvement over TV speakers
8/27/2012

Customer review by LaVida

This product is a great improvement over the TV speakers. Easy setup and the sub woofer connected right away. If you do not have a TV with ARC capability (2011 and newer) you will need to use the optical cable connection and still need to use 2 controllers. The manual states to connect the Blu-ray player to the HDMI IN and then HDMI OUT to the TV. You can set it up as the manual but to hear the cable TV audio input you will also need to connect to the digital optical connection. To eliminate switching the speaker input from Digital In to HDMI (player) just run the optical from your TV to the speaker optical connection. (connect Bluray HDMI to TV directly). Remember this is only a 2 channel system and your player will decode the PCM to Bitstream audio data. Overall this is a very good system to improve your viewing experience without breaking the bank. Tip: My TV is mounted on the wall and I attached my sound bar directly below my TV by using the pedestal mount screw slots and two high density plastic strips attached to the speaker wall mounts. It fits below my 2009 Samsung 50'' plasma perfectly.

Poor compatibility with Samsung TV's

This could be a good sound bar with a little work and software update. However, this product has been on the market almost a full year without a single SW update, so that is not a likely scenario. If you have a Samsung TV with Anynet+ you will probably not be happy with this product. You can use HDMI-ARC to control volume and have Anynet+ power-off the sound bar; however, you must manually power up the sound bar. Unlike a BluRay player with anynet+, the sound bar will not power up the TV. This means you are forced to use two remotes. While on the topic of remotes, this sound bar cannot learn remote control commands like the Boston Acoustics TVee 26 (very similar product). Samsung also implemented different mute, vol +, vol - IR remote commands than their SAMSUNG TVs so if you choose to use the optical connection you will need to use the proprietary remote or buy a universal learning remote. I would recommend anyone considering this product first review the AVSForum (it has a dedicated thread) to better understand the limitations of this product. If you are willing to live with those limitations, you will enjoy the sound.

I already had a surround system and didn't want another gadget cluttering up the entertainment shelf but the speakers in the Samsung LED TV that I have start buzzing at low frequencies and I don't want to run the TV through the surround system all of the time. I disabled the internal speakers from the settings menu on the TV and connected it to the optical in on the sound bar. So far Anynet works well enough between the Sound bar, TV and PS3. The TV remote does not turn on the sound bar but the sound bar remote works adequately with both. The sound is pretty good and the subwoofer handles the low frequencies well. The sound presets handle pretty much all of my listening needs but some end user adjustment flexibility would be nice. It's a little spendy for what it is but it sounds better than the TV speakers and I like the Anynet compatibility.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

Bought this sound bar as a refurbished unit. Received the unit at my home a few days after ordering. Packaging, and product finish and function were like new. I'm using the Bluetooth, Aux (analog) and Optical inputs. I haven't tried the HDMI input. Sound is clean and clear on all three for TV, DVD, and music source programming. I had no problem synching the wireless subwoofer, located about 15' from the sound bar. The unit is surprisingly good at playing music via the Bluetooth connection. I had no problem synching the sound bar up with my Dell Inspiron 1150 laptop located about 10' from the sound bar, via the laptop's IOGEAR USB 2.1 Bluetooth Micro Adapter, model GBU421. I am playing streaming music via a Rhapsody music subscription. The quality of the music was surprisingly good for a subwoofer/satellite arrangement. The sound is clear and balanced and the bass is fairly tight for a subwoofer type system. I didn't detect any sound degradation arising from the Bluetooth A2DP stereo audio wireless streaming. It sounded like I would expect if I had directly cabled the laptop to the sound bar. All in all, a good value.
