Hmm... I figured I would just go and pick one of these up in store so I didn't bother ordering online (The samsung e450) but looks like FS, BB and The Source are all sold out online. And, not much in-store stock at The Source according to the online system.

Managed to find a Samsung unit at my local The Source. CUrious, what did other people get charged for the Environmental Handling Fee is anything? I got charged $7.80 which according to the chart I saw is for a "home theatre in a box". I don't know how a 1 speaker and one sub is a home theatre in a box! I feel ripped off as a consumer for stuff like this.

Curious if anyone has an opinion on which is better too... Samsung or LG... Before I thought I heard the LG was better but I don't recall where I saw that and maybe I just made it up in my head :)

Is this LG better than the E450?

No. Samsung E450 goes quite a bit louder ( bass & treble) and is usually $350 during most of the year. I've seen the LG on sale a few times for $200 this year. Either the Samsung HW-E450 for $200 or the Samsung HW-D550 for $300 are good buys this year. I've been reading alot of avsforums. Seems BB, FS, Source, LD, all have these one sale for the same price. These soundbars have at least 1 hdmi, 1 optical, 1 analog, usb, and wirelesss bluetooth. It's hard the find this combo and I think LG only is one of the few that matches it in terms of inputs but the LG didn't go very load at max volume in futureshop.

The main benefit of the E550 is bigger sub, can separate soundbar into 2 vertical bars, and 1 extra input over E450. Downfall of E550 is all the inputs are on the sub so your tv and components need to be near sub. The E450 has all the inputs on the soundbar so you can put your sub further away.

For those near Times Square (in Richmond Hill), the electronics store inside the mall "Golden Electronics" has the HW-E450 on sale for $189.99.

HDTV&Electronics just outside is willing to beat it. I purchased it for $180 + tax and no eco fee.
Since the E-450 is sold out almost everywhere I went to HDTV electronics and they offered it to me for $250. Told them the story about Golden Electronics but they where not interested to beat the price.
Went to Golden and got it for $189.99 (was the last one in the store - maybe more in the back).
Thank you for posting this deal.

i'd recommend the samsung hwe450 if you have an ARC compatable panasonic tv. Don't get it if you have a samsung tv as it doesn't turn on and off with the tv.

Technically it will. Through Toslink (Optical) it will turn on when you turn on the TV... albeit with a probably 8-10 second delay. And when you turn your TV off, the sound bar will auto shutoff after 20mins.
