I was in Costco yesterday and came across this soundbar (HW-KM45C) for $170 that looks suspiciously like the Samsung HW-K450 selling most places for about $220.

https://www.costco.com/Samsung-HW...94997.html

It's a 300W soundbar with 6.5" wireless subwoofer and 2.1 channel surround. It connects wirelessly to compatible Samsung TVs or via optical or HDMI to any other TV. Overall I've been impressed with the sound coming from this setup for such a good price

Costco's retail price is listed as $249 but they're currently offering an $80 Instant rebate bringing the price down to $169.99.

I had just purchased the K450 the week prior from Best Buy and so I bought this one, took it home and compared the two. Features, looks, etc. appear to be the same. It sounds the same to me in limited use. And the one from Costco included an HDMI cable. Returned the K450 to Best Buy and am keeping the KM45C as they appear to be different model numbers of the same product.

Figured I'd share in case anyone was in the market for a soundbar.

Pretty much the same as Best Buy. Only difference is Costco has the HDMI cable, thus the C in the model number.

Is it $170 in all Costcos ? I feel like it might have been cheaper , I saw it today but cant remember exact price at my local store but thought it was $139.. They have the 5.1 for $379 online which I thought was $349 in warehouse, Now I need to go back and check.

Assuming online prices are correct, I wonder if you bought the Samsung K550 rear speaker set and added it to the HW-KM45C if it would equal the HW-KM57C version because it would cost about $100 less buying them seperately

I just got the $100 Polk , no HDMI and 240 as opposed to 300w total. Debating on returning it and going with Samsung because of the expandability and the fact that I have Samsung tv.

Has anyone has problems connecting the TV to the soundbar using the optical cable?
