Incredibly Frustrating!

Cole 8/15/2020

paired with a q80t tv planning for a seamless user experience and so far i'm getting anything but. the first couple hours were fantastic, easy setup, great sound, earc and q-symphony functioned properly. the next time i turned on the system the issues began. center channel cut out. had all sound effects but no voice at all. changed the tv sound output to tv only and the voices came back. the next hour was spent powering down, unplugging, resetting, finally worked. day two, turned system on, no center channel. same procedure as day before but still no voices. tried firmware update that failed half a dozen times. app crashed. sub disconnected. re-initialized. near two hours later i am finally listening to a show while writing this review. fool me once....

Great sound when fully functional

JAKE T 7/24/2020

first and foremost, the soundbar and subwoofer sound excellent... when they work together. the issue arrises when the subwoofer disconnects from the soundbar, which happens very frequently. this is either a software or hardware issue as they are within 3 feet of eachother with no objects in between. we also purchaed the rear speakers which have the same problem. overall disappointed with product. if samsung releases a few more updates to patch these issues it could easily be a 5 star product.

I gave this review 1 star the first time...

Juan2three4 7/20/2020

i have spend about 4 hours trying to get this hw-q800t to work. firstly, arc was not working properly. i have a q70t, so no e-arc (probably ever). there was a software update available via the smart things app, which seems to be the only way to update this soundbar. there is no usb to flash firmware. that's when the problems began. the update gets to 3%, then hangs at "initializing". i have tried unplugging the soundbar, resetting it (- + buttons at the same time for 5 seconds until it displays "init") 10 times, re-registering the device in smart things, and nothing will get this soundbar to update. i suspect this firmware will fix my arc issues, but i guess i will never know.

Sounds Great

Azom 7/4/2020

bought it refurbished, no issues so far at all. i got this soundbar to pair with my lg oled tv and can confirm that it was an extremely painless experience. it feels a little bit more limited in terms of what customization can be controlled from the app compared to my lg sk10y, and i think that a larger led display would be more helpful. in terms of sound quality this soundbar is def up there, as fitting of the price point. the sound quality is on point with everything sounding super clear to me from music to shows. some of the amazon reviews about the bass being kind of weak is accurate though, even turning up the bass level to +6 it still seems slightly weaker compared to the lg subwoofer.

Incompatible with own brand product

Steve 6/26/2020

soundbar sounds great, but same problem experienced with two units connected to a q80r 65" qled tv - when watching any of the apps (netflix/google play/etc) and switching back to terrestrial television the tv locks on the 'no signal' screen but audio plays normally. updated both the tv and the soundbar(s) with no fix. spent about 3 hours on live chat with samsung with no solution other than try resetting (done) and take the soundbar to a technician. with soundbar removed the television works normally without issue. i believe there is a compatibility issue between the two devices but samsung does not seem to care. soundbar(s) returned to point of purchase for refund.
