Does anybody know if this plays DivX from the USB Port?

Hot deal btw!!
#5
does this have input for sound output from pc?
#6
Designer, Samsung?
#7
Very hot. This will greatly improve upon the sound of most LCDs and plasmas with lacklustre speakers. It will allow you to connect your TV/freeview/cable/Sky box or console for better sound than the thin TV speakers give.

Here are the specs

hmmm, sounds a bit pants really, doesn't it?

Once you've slipped a DVD disc into the slot, it soon becomes apparent that the HT-X200's sound quality is no match for other 2.1 systems on the market. With the captivating LOTR: Return of the King disc, the grandstanding action scenes sound harsh and overly aggressive, with too much emphasis on the top end frequencies. With the volume cranked up high, the clanking swords and screeching Nazgul effects go right through you, and not in a good way - the system grabs you, roughs you up and spits you out, leaving you praying for the next quiet dialogue scene to come along.


despite those jaw-dropping looks and its generous feature list, this system is a big disappointment.
#12
Or maybe not... review

Verdict

To us, it seems as though Samsung spent too much time perfecting the HT-X200's (admittedly gorgeous) design and not enough time tweaking its sound quality. If it had, we could have had a bona fide bargain on our hands, but despite those jaw-dropping looks and its generous feature list, this system is a big disappointment.


I eat my words!
#13
Only upscales to 1080i but suppose a good price for this unit !
#14
just ordered mine!

y has hukd taken this down from the hot page?

I think i might give this a pass (still looking for decent 2.1's for my ps3!), although £105 posted, its a deal not to be missed!
#16
Was thinking about getting this for my dad for Xmas. He has a sammy LCD with awful sound. I know this is being slated for it's audio and I've read other reviews that agree, but in your opinion will it be good enough to replace the tv speakers considering the cheap 105 price tag?
#17
Bargain, hot!! :)
#18
For just over £100 this is HOT. I had the model before this, it was included in a package with a stand and 40" Samsung LCD.

HOT.
#19
cheap rubbish.. 300w my xxxxxxx
banned#20
I have had this package for a while now and yes it does look good but
there is no way of adjusting the BASE or TREBLE- only buy if you live in a detached house,
because the walls seem to shake when for example Strictly **** dancing theme starts!!
I find myself constantly turning the sound up and down.
#21
£100 combined dvd/sound/speaker systems are always going to sound pants.

False economy - better to spend more on a better system.

Have to agree. I'm on the lookout for a home cinema system, but I'd rather wait for the Jan sales and get a decent system for similar price. I'll avoid this 'bargain'.

stop talking out your ****, there's plenty of combined dvd/sound/speaker systems that sound fantastic.

Jeez, the amount of snobs on here is incredible...it's like the place is a honey pot for you all.
Life must be grand for all you people who have 50" plasmas, dedicated amps, £500 speakers and the like.
For normal people, combo systems like this take up less space and are a massive improvement on the sound from your telly. This one in particular might not be a great example, but to suggest ALL such systems are rubbish is...well...rubbish.
#24
Ordered mine. For £100 it's a bargain for the features and I'm sure the sound will be significantly better than the rubbish speakers on the TV!

Heat added!

If you're on a tight budget then this would be a good starting point.

Obviously more would buy you better

TVs usually have better upscalers built in than these cheaper units. leave the upscalling to the telly.
#27
any recommended alternatives?
#28


It got 7/10 for value when it was priced at £239.30.
so at £105 this is more probably a 9 or 10 out of 10.

yes there are other systems but their not 2.1 and they cost more than double.
not everyone can afford to spend a lot of money especially in these times so for many this has to be worth it.
They sound much better than standard tv speakers - especially samsung LCD/Plasma
And there is absolutely no alternative at this price.
Has to be HOT.

Well said mate
banned#30
would this be good for the PS3 i notice it has an optical input? or does it need an optical output??? Please help! lol
#31
I suspect it will be fine for the PS3.

Optical out from the PS3 then into the Optical in on the Samsung that then sounds it out to the speakers.


Not a bad buy at this price though I do Believe ur better to get a real 5.1 system. This cannot emulate the beuty if total surround sound..

Simple answer, yes.

+1 to what 'ourdave' said.

Its weird how some sound systems dont have these HDMI/optical out/component 7.1 input yet the quality of sound can give off better sound than the ones which have.. Im still waiting for my logitech Z2300 or alternative.. :thumbsup:

PS. as much as i like to read reviews.. im not keen on the website being called 'trusted reviews' seems abit.. flawed.. its like going to websites saying ukcheapest-ipods-here.co.uk

did u read description?


Yes, but it doesn't specifically say DivX/Xvid from USB, although reading between the lines I suppose you could assume so!!

I'm such a cynic, I'd prefer for somebody to actually do it and tell me it works!!!
#34
Hot deal, great price for this set.

There is a 5.1 version of this - HT-X250, not sure how available this is now though.
#35
does this have an AUX??? sorry if the answer is in my face.. cant seem to see it!!!
thanks in advance.

very tempted to get this.... Heat added

Gets a good review on Amazon (4 Stars), and this is at a much higher price.

Virtually Smashing Samsung!!!, 16 Oct 2007
By Mr. I. O. Scott "olyscott8" (UK) - See all my reviews


After having my BOSE Acoustimass speakers and dedicated Yamaha Home Cinema amp for a number of years I decided to sell-off most of my Home Cinema kit on Ebay along with my 500+ DVD collection and scale down my expensive habbit (Well we have a baby on the way in December and priorities change).

So I sold all my precious gear and decided my scale down would be extreme and I'd go from a full-on 5.1 system to a minimalistic 2.1 virtual surround HTIB (Home Theatre in a Box). So the search began to find a syetem that would easily intergrate with my Sky+ HD box and that had auido inputs for my computer.

In the end this litle Sammy won! Not only does this kit look the business it really does pack a punch with it's diminutive speakers and piano black bass. I'd recommend pumping up the volume at the start as most passive bass units need to be driven well for a while to get them running at full performance, my £800 Bose speakers were just the same!

The sound is very clear and I'd dissagre with some reviews that say it sounds too harsh. I'd say this is one of the most natural sounding systems I test drove. The sub adds a good level of bass to music and movies alike. Be careful with some external inputs though! My PC had extra bass setting switched on in iTunes and Windows Media Player which went way over what was required and made the bass sound disconnected from the main left and right channels.

So it sounds great but what about the picture. Well with this little beauty you've got HDMi output with upscaling to 720p and 1080i and Farroujia (probably spelt wrong)DCDi deinterlacing which can offer a better and sharper picture on LCD and Plasma TVs. You've got component output too, but no upscaling through this mode, which is a shame. There are some remote control hacks for other Samsung upscaling DVDs that turn this option back on but I've found nothing for this model yet! The picture looked great on my Evesham 37" LCD TV but the upscaling will never give you true Hi-Def from standard DVD sources but 720p does give a slight picture improvement over the PAL 576p standard on my TV.

There's enough inputs for a standard install. As mentioned above I have my Sky+ HD box linked to the Digital Optical audio input for sound. There is no HDMi pass through on this unit though, you just get a HDMi output for whatever the DVD is playing! I've got my computer connected to the RCA left and right AUX 2 inputs and a Creative Zen Vision plugged into the side AUX 1 with an audio jack. The unit also has a USB port which will accept some, but not many, pen drives and MP3 players. My Zen would not work through this connection!

My only gripe would be the lack of control over the trebble and bass, There's none! This is very odd for any system and can be limiting if you get a DVD or CD with overtly strong bass. The 2.1 Virtual Surround can be pretty good at times with the right material but can just sound echoey on standard stereo feeds. To be honest this will never be as good as a proper 5.1 and my old system was better, but I knew it would be. Don't expect miracles and you'll be pleasantly surprised with this super HTIB set-up.

Review from trustedreviews.com says no SCART. Seems a let down as this kit seems suited to the budget conscious buyer, who may not wish to stretch to HDMI cables. Could go component outputs or a composite I suppose..

"The socket offering on the rear of the main unit is odd in that there's an HDMI output but no SCART output. While we like this forward-thinking approach, it could leave those of you with non-HDMI TVs in the lurch. There is, however, a set of component outputs, or a composite output if you're desperate."

Well, to be fair, you both have a point. A lot of people on here are asking about specifically using this for the ps3, in which case, they don't really need the DVD player and would (IMO) be better off getting a cheap amp and speakers and as a result get A LOT more for NOT A LOT more.

I paid £180 for a Yamaha 363 with 5.1 yamaha speakers over 6 months ago... I'm sure you could get a better deal than that now.

If however, you SPECIFICALLY NEED a DVD player, then fine. Otherwise no point in paying for a dvd player that you don't need.

However, £105 for this is HOT, if a 2.1 combi system is what you ae looking for.
