The HT-Q70, or as the manual states, Samsung Home Theater Stystem with 5 Disc DVD Changer and HDMI, is quite the HD-DVD player/Home Theater system. It's pretty loveable, especially when you first take it home. We first got one of these when we ordered our Samsung HDTV at Sears, and figured we'd might at well get a nice sound system and a new DVD player.

The player looks pretty nice, and the quality is nice; especially with DVDs. Though it plays HD-DVDs, which are basically dead, thanks to Blu-Ray, it's still worth it. Not only does it play HD-DVDs, it also plays normal DVDs, and enhances their quality. It makes your normal DVDs look pretty nice, and so I figure it was worth what we paid for it.

Though it plays DVDs nicely, music cds can be a pain, thogh they aren't quite so bad. Although, the player doesn't seem to be made at all for music-lovers. It's a pretty nice 5.1 surround system, though it doesn't get too loud. The speakers are tiny, though they are decently loud for their size.

The subwoofer isn't very deep, although it does do its job, along with every other speaker. It may not get very loud, although; the sound effects that will play out the rear speakers can be pretty trippy. Kind of scared my family at first, as we weren't used to such features.

The remote, is pretty nice, though it does get annoying how its the only way to control more of the advanced features on the system, thankfully, it's barely compatible with our DirectTV remote.

The system supports XM radio, though it's a bit disappointing that it doesn't support Sirius, and it also supports wireless speakers for the rear ones. It has an HDMI port, along with a coaxial jack, RCA jack, Optical Cable jack, Componet Jack, USB port, and an FM Antenna.

The system supports USB host, meaning it can the music off of most MP3 players, and can display the photos off of some cameras. It supports JPEG discs, too.

Another thing, is that the manual can be VERY helpfulat times, as the connections of certain things may become VERY confusing.

All and all, it's a pretty nice DVD player, although personally I think it could've done better, especially in the loudness, but don't let that scare you off from it, as it's not TOO quiet.
