Sometimes, this soundbar is amazing!

Matthew 9/15/2020

this soundbar is capable of providing deeply immersive sound, it is loud and crisp and sounds are accurately placed around the room. initially, my samsung 4k blu-ray player had very bad sync issues and the subwoofer would pop and crack. samsung support fixed those things. qsymphony rarely works well. mainly it muddies the dialogue, to the point where it is incomprehensible. having the soundbar's screen on top is ridiculous. auto-calibration would be nice. the fabric is difficult to dust. alexa does not work well, and regularly interrupts viewing. once enabled, it is hard to get rid of alexa, but you can turn the microphone off. this results in a red light on the front of the soundbar. and the bass is simply not very powerful, even turned up to full.

Amazing sound.

JayBird 9/13/2020

i was skeptical based on the reviews from different websites and here. i upgraded my soundbar from the first samsung atmos 2016. the q950t sound amazing, after playing with the setting for a few days i'm finally enjoying it. the surround sound speakers sound great, i have a cx65 tv and connected with hdmi and i have no problem playing atmos from different apps. i did notice a little bit of cracking noise from the sub. i'm sure they will do a firmware update to fix and improve issues. what i don't like is the display being on top of the bar. i either use the app to see what the settings are. i also don't like the fabric, i have a pet and it collects all the hairs and is hard to get them off. overall i'm very happy with the system.

Horrible customer experience!

Dman 9/4/2020

samsung has lost its way and does not know how to treat loyal customers. below are a few points:: sound quality - i have both the q90r and the q950t and the q90r actually sounds better. voice quality on this bar is horribly muddy. look- some have complained about the cloth covering on this. for me the wife likes it more than the standart tech looking bar so good enough for me but lets be honest its not a selling point. customer experience - horrible! i purchased this bar and 1 day outside return window of 14 days it goes on sale for $200 off. you would think that samsung would work with me on a price match. nope. well based on the experience ...nope i wont be buying samsung products anymore. they keep my $200 today but my wallet will spend with the competition going forward!

Compared to the Q90R this one is way worse

wuzzle 8/20/2020

sound is flat. sometime is hard to tell if sound is coming from the tv speakers. i agree with the other reviewers. i should have kept my q90r but i wanted two extra speakers. i am hoping the firmware update coming out will improve things

Samsung Q950T - Over-promises and Under-delivers

InTheBay 8/19/2020

- who puts the led display on top of the soundbar? - the quality of the dialog/voice is terrible! q90r seemed way better here. especially for atmos content, the dialog is inaudible. - there are four sound modes. adaptive has better dialog, but rear speakers seem quieter, while surround gives me better rear speaker performance, at the cost of dialog. - the soundbar downscales lpcm 5.1/7.1 to pcm! this practically makes the soundbar useless to apple tv users like me! - there is no option for room calibration which lg soundbars offer. overall, for a price of nearly $2k, the soundbar almost feels like a white elephant in my living room, that over-promises and under-delivers. unless a firmware update with fixes comes soon, i am on the verge of returning this soundbar.

Rear speakers worse than Q90R

JESSE CAMPBELL 8/5/2020

rear speakers connect but give nothing but feedback 90% of the time. smart things app shows a firmware update but it doesnt actually update. no applicable support page, it just shows "this isnt available." for $1,799 this is a trainwreck. released woth no support and terrible conmectivity. i recommend staying far, far away.

Sounds great. Cats have scratched it up.

Mike 8/1/2020

sounds great when watching movies and am getting atmos effects. sound isn't as "full" as my q90r though. i don't know if it's because the q90r has physically larger drivers or if this just needs some firmware updates to tune the sound. the rear speakers also have upward firing drivers for atmos and they work just as well as those that came with my q90r. no issues so far with earc / arc and my lg tv. the only negative is that my cats have already ruined the fabric surfaces. if you have pet cats, i do not recommend this soundbar if you value aesthetics at all. they will ruin its looks.
