Why NSI Protection Plus?

Our service plan is an economical way to extend the terms of your product's manufacturer parts & labor warranty.

Most manufacturer's limited warranties leave customers with no protection against the rising cost of repairs.

Even the best products can malfunction and the most minor repairs can cost hundreds.

About NSI Protection Plus

Administered by Warrantech and insured by AmTrust Financial, NSI Protection Plus is the largest service network in the industry with 30 years of building the network and over 22 million in paid claims.

The most comprehensive repair plans in the business!

  • Day one coverage on special features
  • Removal and reinstallation coverage
  • $25 Laundry credit (Washers and Dryers)
  • 5 year appliance contracts include 10 year major component coverage
  • $250 Food credit (per incident, eligible products)
  • The only true "No Lemon Guarantee" in the business
  • No "CAP" on repairs or replacement, unlimited repairs.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Nice Upgrade From Older Model

Mika B 10/20/2021

I purchased this along with the HW A450 at the same time. Somehow I ended up opening the A450 first and although it is nice, it didn't really give me the quality sound I was looking for. After setting this one up in my entertainment room, I was pleased with the clarity in sound and and what seems to me to be a better experience. Now I wish I'd opted for 2 of these instead of the A450.

BIZLATLV1 10/20/2021

I bought this sound bar about 3 months ago. I'm very impressed with how awesome it sounds. The quality of the sound is amazing. I'm using my Xbox Series X to stream everything and if you choose the right sound settings, this sound bar will blow you away. I can't believe how nice the bass sounds also! It arrived in nice packaging and set up was easy. You cant go wrong with this sound bar. And for the price its a no brainer.

Farmerm25 10/20/2021

I've had this sound bar for about a month now and I don't know how I ever lived without one. I love watching football and movies and this sound bar has really taken my experience to the next level. The variety of sound modes allows me to tailor my sound to whatever I am watching. I also love how I can use Bluetooth to pair it to my phone and play music. Great product. Highly recommend!

Seemless Connection with Samsung TV

dannythatjet 10/20/2021

Satisfied/Happy. It definitely enhanced the travel of sound and depth compared to the standard audio from our T8000 TV. I have enjoyed the addition of the soundbar and subwoofer.

Superb sound & Seamless functioning with TV

Beagle Lover 9/24/2021

This Samsung HW-A550 sound bar is heads and shoulders above previous ones we've had, both in terms of sound quality and the seamless way it functions with our Smart TV (which also happens to be a Samsung). And best of all, the unbelievable price at Best Buy --- with a gift card credit --- made it too good to pass up.

Frank 9/22/2021

I purchased this set of speakers to replace an LG sound bar that all it gave me was headaches. I am glad I did purchased this set because the sound is great and my TV really sounds like you were in a theater.

Older and wiser now 9/21/2021

I had purchased a soundbar from another company &, while it worked very well while on my satellite service, I could barely hear the voices when I streamed movies. It was terrible! My new Samsung soundbar works great! I'm very happy & recommend it to anyone looking for a competively priced one. The real test? I would buy it again!

Nice upgrade to television audio

Palmetto Bob 8/18/2021

We bought the soundbar and woofer about a month ago to use on a Samsung television we watch on the porch. The components were easy to install and link up with the television. They're a great improvement over the television's audio and have enhanced our television viewing on the porch. We watch primarily streaming services and so far they've all worked well with the components.

Robynharris81 8/1/2021

I do love this soundbar! Pros are: great all around sound, easy instructions to those who are familiar with electronic installation, different options for sound experiences. Cons: Instructions are not detailed and use pictures, I still cannot figure out how to use the volume control on the remote.

Almost full of regret 7/31/2021

Sound wise, this setup is absolutely amazing. My room straight bumbs now...problem is I can't get smart things to recognize it. That app has so many holes it ruins the whole experience I thought I was buying when switching all my gadgets to samsung...totally an oversold feature. Can't even get products as advertised anymore...it's a shame..and not a cheap on either

The soundbar came really quick and for the price I was actually blown away by the sound. I wasn't expecting much for the size and it actually did a good job at filling the whole room and it connects to my Samsung tv without any setup. Just plug it in and it synced right away to the TV!
