Released June, 2010
The Pros:Audio sync problems with external sources can be manually adjusted for a precise delay. Great audio quality compared to the competition. Software and firmware updates can be handled quickly and easily by the end-user, no need to send it in or have someone come over.
The Cons:Sound tends to cut out or fall out of sync when switching input sources, can be tricky to get it back on. More sound problems when changing channels between an SD and HD channel - tends to mute itself. WiFi connections frequently drop off unless relatively close to the router - needs a strong signal.
The Samsung HT-C6900W is a 5.1-channel, 1000W home theater system featuring five matched satellite speakers (front, surround, center), a wireless rear speaker, a subwoofer and a central receiver. It's a duplicate of the HT-C6600, except that it's satellite speakers are taller and tad more powerful.

Like its counterpart, the HT-C6900W was designed for 3D Blu-ray disc players, as it can in fact process and produce 3D images, although a separately purchased pair of Samsung 3D Active Glasses is required. In addition, the unit is wireless ready (module required) and hosts an abundance of playback options including CD/DVD/BD, iPod (dock included), and Internet (module required). Once it’s hooked up to a wireless module, users can stream Internet content from their PC or access Internet@TV services from Blockbuster, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, etc. Additional features include a plethora of Dolby Digital / DTS codecs, and support for full 1080p high-definition video content.

great audio quality compared to the competition
software and firmware updates can be handled quickly and easily by the end-user, no need to send it in or have someone come over
upscales SD content realistically, doesn't leave grain or artifacts
built-in WiFi connectivity
dual HDMI inputs for use with other HDMI compatible devices such as gaming consoles, media players, etc..
Samsung Apps platform - capable of streaming content from the Internet, compatible with popular services such as Netflix, YouTube, Pandora, etc...
saves room, time and effort, is 'good enough', and is more affordable than a receiver / Blu-ray combo for the vast majority of consumers
visually appealing and easy to use user interface
sound tends to cut out or fall out of sync when switching input sources, can be tricky to get it back on
more sound problems when changing channels between an SD and HD channel - tends to mute itself
WiFi connections frequently drop off unless relatively close to the router - needs a strong signal
speaker wires for the rear speakers are a little short, difficult to route properly without going out and getting extensions
far from as versatile as a separate Blu-ray player / A/V receiver combination for the power user
not 3D Blu-ray compatible
