TestSeek's Expert Reviews Summary   

The Samsung HT-X810 is a 2.1 wall-mountable home theatre system with a 5.8 GHz wireless subwoofer. Among its primary features are; 1080p DVD upscaling (slot-in DVD-player included), good connectivity including Bluetooth, USB, HDMI, component and optical video.

The system generally produced excellent audio and video quality in the tests, though it sometimes clattered at extreme volumes. This system is not a surround sound system although it has a virtual surround sound mode, which wasn’t much appreciated in the reviews.

The reviewers have different opinions regarding the included slot-in DVD/CD-player. Some say it works good when upscaling DVD-video to 1080p, others wasn’t very impressed by this function. Otherwise there were no complaints regarding the DVD/CD player.

The system was easy to setup but the editors complained about the remote control having too small buttons and the menu navigation being complicated to navigate. Other operation problems noted was the long time it took for the system to switch between audio sources (up to five seconds).

The editors liked

  • Stylish and easy to setup
  • Satisfying audio and video quality
  • Wall mountable
  • Good connectivity
  • Built-in upscaling DVD/CD-player

The editors didn't like

  • Clatters at extreme volumes
  • Puzzling audio settings
  • Slow and dull input switching

TestSeek's Conclusion

Although Samsung HT-X810 can’t be labeled cheap at a price tag of $700, most reviewers are very positive. They liked the design, connectivity and the sound produced by the HT-X810 system. On the negative side, the editors weren’t as impressed by the built-in DVD-player and the long time it took to switch between audio sources.

  • Excellent audio and video quality, Good connectivity options, including optical HDMI, USB, and Bluetooth, Easy setup and auto-pairing with wireless subwoofer, Main unit is easily wall-mountable

  • Compact wall mountable sound solution; Good punchy sound; Wireless subwoofer makes for good flexibility; Wide range of input sources
  • Surround sound effect only adequate; Video performance from DVD could be problematic
  • I was a little concerned about the video performance from this unit, but the sound was quite good in view of its size and cost. The wireless subwoofer in particular was very useful, allowing an escape from the long cables that subwoofers otherwise inva...

  • Slick design: looks great, good quality DVD playback, versatility: plenty of connection options
  • Can be overly bassy, slow to switch inputs and load discs, standby hum
  • While we like the design and the range of functions, the overwhelming bass makes this one soundbar that just doesn’t quite get the basics right...
