2.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Jul 22, 2011

Samsungs HT-X50 home theatre system pairs a compact 5.1 surround speaker system with a progressive-scan 5-disc DVD changer. The space-saving satellite style speakers are wireless ready to eliminate the need for cluttered cables. The 1000 watt (RMS) receiver supports Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II, and dts Digital Surround audio processing, and also features a USB Host Play port - simply plug in any USB media device like an external hard drive, MP3 player, or PDA and play back media files without installing software. Features 5.1 surround sound @ 1000 watts RMS Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II, dts Digital Surround audio processing Progressive scan 5-disc DVD changer Wireless ready USB Host Play for connectivity with USB media devices iPod compatible ... PROS: (1) 5-DVD player is convenient, perfect for discs loaded with music, can make one for each style (2) good codec support for AVI and WMV files, never have a compatibility problem (3) user interface is well designed, easy to work with and lets you customize it (4) capable of wireless connection with the speakers (with an adapter), reduces the tangle around the room (5) enough power output for most small and medium rooms in the home ... CONS: (1) only the 1 HDMI input, makes some setups a bit awkward (2) speaker shape makes them seem like cheap PC speakers instead of stereo satellites (3) needs a software update to work properly, wont read a number of file formats until this is done (4) cant fine tune the audio very well, not many options (5) can take up to 20 seconds when switching to a CD to have it start playing

Samsung HTX50
1 Star Review   By member suethorstad - Mar 31, 2008   

Strengths: Sounds great when it works.

Weakness: I bought this unit for my son for a house warming gift on March 1. The first one was a manufacture defect and never worked. The store immediately exchanged it. The second one lasted only 3 weeks.

I am out $250.00 for a piece of junk that no one can fix and Samsung doesn't even recognize it as one of theirs. (too new) Don't waste your money on this pile. I will never buy Samsung again. They won't even stand behind thier own product.

A Very Nice Complete Set
5 Star Review   By member nikchalmers - Mar 17, 2008   

Strengths: Sound, Price, Ease of Set-up & Size of Speakers

I was blown away the quality sound of this system. I truely felt I was in a theatre. When you couple that sound experience with the competitive price, I would rate this one of the best quality systems around. It was also very simple to set-up. I'm a female novice when it comes to electronics. If I could set it up simply...anyone can. I am very happy I found this spectacular deal...now I understand why it was on back order.

SAMSUNG HT-X50 HOME THEATER SYSTEM
5 Star Review   By member massenat - Feb 23, 2008   

Strengths: Value for price, easy installation

Weakness: For the Price, none

Just bought and installed this system. Works great with my Samsung LCD TV. Installed easily in no time. I did have a little troble trying to figure out how to get surround sound from my tv- as Best Buy said all I needed was a audio cable (in addition to the HDMI cable). I hooked it up, but could not get it right until I went to Samsung's support webpage. In the FAQ, I found out that you could not get surround sound, but rather stereo sound, which was fine with me. Just a matter of using the function button to show aux, then I was able to hear my tv through the 2 front speakers. I was so thrilled with my purchase, for $243 through ABT electronics, that I bought another for my boyfriend!

GREAT HOME THEATER SYSTEM/GREAT PRICE!
4 Star Review   By member talkaboutu - Dec 23, 2007   

Strengths: Price, sound

Weakness: the size, not quality of the speakers

The HT-X50home theater was simple to install. I have a Samsung LCD/HDTV which was compatable with the remotes. The sound is absolutely fantastic. The look of the speakers are simple, as is the receiver. For the price, and for a person like me who doesn't need any fancy features, the HT-X50 is PERFECT!

Strengths: We matched this side by side to a sony $400.00-1,000w, and the sound seemed more crisp with the SAMSUNG. Sold us

Weakness: Sure the speakers could be better looking but then the price would go up. There really ok.

This is my first so I couldn,t figure out how to setup unit and TV. Called the number on manual after hours and guess what, I got support. She helped me set my box and TV which wasn

Great buy for the price
4 Star Review   By member scottibab - Dec 10, 2007   

Strengths: easy set up, minimum buttons on unit

Weakness: long cords for speakers

I shopped around and the quality and features for the price made me choose this unit. Overall, I've been happy with my purchase. The sound is great and I don't turn it to the maximum. It plays backed-up DVD's that could not play in my current DVD player. The remote is instintive to use. I would recommend it.

Samsung HT-X50 Home Theater System
4 Star Review   By member kkovacek - Nov 11, 2007   

Strengths: Easy to install, small speakers, great sound

Weakness: Remote does not work with my television

Just purchased this system for under $220. It works great in a medium sized room. I did a lot of research and, for the price, this was the best system. The installation was easy, however my room was already wired for surround sound. Everything is labeled so it is easy to figure out where the wires go. The speakers are small, but that does not affect the sound quality. The DVD player is large, but slim, which was expected for a 5 disc changer. The remote is very detailed and, after reading the instruction manual, semi-easy to operate. Unfortunately, my television is not recognized by the remote so I have to continue to use separate remotes. Overall, I am very impressed with this system. For the price, you can't go wrong. The sound definitely beats what comes out of a television alone!

4 Star Review     

Strengths: The sound is really good

Weakness: There is a constant blinking "Rear Check" in front of the DVD player....

I was wondering if this light is supposed to blink and why is it blinking. I'm not sure if the connection has something to do with this. Does sound great overall!!

HT-X50
4 Star Review   By member profk - Oct 1, 2007   

Strengths: PRICE; optical-in, HDMI output; Upconversion to 1080i; 5 disc carousel

Weakness: Center channel doesn't screw mount; buttons on remote are tiny

Definitely a good bang for your buck price-wise. I wasn't as impressed with the upconversion as I thought I'd be (difference between 780p and 1080i was negligible). But for how small the speakers are, they certainly more than get the job done.

Fantastic Value!
4 Star Review   By member SexyCoolguy - Jul 25, 2007   

Strengths: Great sound! Great Features! Good Price.

Weakness: The speakers could definately be more attractive, but they aren't that bad.

I got a great price on this unit so that was definately it's best feature for me. Once I got it set up, I was thrilled. The audio is better than units twice the price and it has great features. Optical audio-in and the ability to connect to a wireless module for the rear are great bonuses. Also, my TV has a slight video delay, and this home theater system allowed be to delay the audio to match. Awesome!
