Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Nice midrange but where is the BASS???

Charles3112 8/31/2019

Ok I know I can't match my 7.2.2 home theater with this little thing, but with the bass all the way up and the treble dropped all the way the bass is really underwhelming. Thought I would try to update the firmware but the method on the website doesn't do anything that I can see. Wife says lets send it back, but I hate to do that without living with it for at least a few days, but it does not look good. I have to say that the bar itself is made of metal and is strong enough to use for self defense, but the bass unit with all its size is just weak.

People need to be a little more patient

Rdokieloud 8/2/2019

I bought this soundbar as an upgrade from my HW-M360 series which I had the 8500 series rear speakers connected to which gave me 4.1 surround sound. I wanted 5.1 so I bought the R-650 in order to do so. This soundbar is great you just need to set it up properly and sometimes that takes a little time and patience. This new soundbar, I was upset at first too but then when I figured out how to set the settings and such it is great now. The bass is fine just needs adjustments. I just played some music and the bass was bumping as it does here and there when watching movies and shows.

Sounds great but keeps powering off by itself!

MLB in FL 7/6/2019

We just bought a new Samsung 65" smart TV and Soundbar, thinking they would be compatible. We love the TV and the sound produced by the soundbar, but like so many others, we have an issue with the soundbar randomly turning itself off. We had the two devices connected optically and have also tried a Bluetooth connection. We followed Samsung's suggestions to "Unsatisfied Georgian" but pressing those buttons on the soundbar's remote do not work for us. This is causing more frustration in our household and we are wishing we had done more research on the product before buying it.

Best for balanced sound

bml2k2 6/24/2019

I tried the r550 first and returned it for this model. The r550 has too much bass and the voices sound muffled often. The bass is much more balanced with this model and the center channel speakers make it so that you can hear the voices in movies clearly. I do wish there was an app for iOS and I'm unclear if the surround mode is just for if you've added rear speakers.

No compatible rear speakers yet?

Drew Mc 6/22/2019

I just bought this item with the 9000s rear speakers as recommended by the Best Buy employee. Went home to set up to find out the 9000s rear speakers are not compatible. Later learned when returning the speakers that Samsung has not yet released rear speakers that are compatible with the R650 soundbar.

Sounds better than the TV speakers

EaNb 5/29/2019

Soundbar definitely sounds better than the TV speakers on the Q80, but the sub is a little underwhelming. I have messed around with the setting quite a bit but just can't get to that wow factor. Wish I would have purchased the HW-Q60R.

Good quality w/slight issue.

Unsatisfied Georgian 5/8/2019

I bought this sound bar a few weeks ago. It works fine; good bass, 0-100 sound level setting. The only issue is that it turns on by itself after being turned off. I have to manually unplug the power cord to prevent this from happening.
