Pros and Cons

Pros1

Everything was still banded in the original packaging. I was completely blown away.

Pros5

It has great sound, it comes on instantly with the tv remote control and it included a nice hdmi cable to hook it up. The center speaker does a good job at separating the dialogue and making it easier to hear. You are also able to connect to your phon...  Read More

The soundbar randomly says 'network disconnected' a lot recently. It drops its wifi connection whenever the unit sleeps or powers off. Can’t connect to alexa without first downloading the app. It also seems to go offline from samsung things app.
