'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

During the holidays and on the run-up to Black Friday, US retailers are releasing deals on tech including home entertainment gadgets and accessories.

Over at Amazon-owned company Woot, the Samsung HW-Q59CT soundbar with a wireless subwoofer is available for a $60 discount, bringing down a usual price tag of around $189 to $129.

Soundbars and subwoofers are used to improve the audio quality of games, music, and television shows. You can use soundbars as a replacement for inbuilt TV speakers, for example, or you could connect a soundbar to your PC for more immersive audio. 

The Samsung HW-Q59CT soundbar, a 2021 model available on Woot, is a solid option if you're shopping around for such a kit. The soundbar offers Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS Virtual:X sound, Samsung's Acoustic Beam panoramic technology, and Q-Symphony for synchronized audio across the soundbar, wireless subwoofer, and your TV or PC.

Furthermore, Samsung has included a gaming mode for enhanced, three-dimensional sound.

The caveat is that the cheap soundbar and subwoofer kit is renewed and may not contain a manual, but past buyers have noted a quick search on Google will bring up instructions if you need them. The bundle also comes with a remote control and a mounting kit.
