Samsung HT-BD1220 review


The Samsung HT-BD1220 Blu-ray system impressed us initially, but newer rivals have edged ahead of it

Pleasant aesthetics ; well-specified ; speakers and sub integrate nicely ; natural picture ; subtle colours

Not as sonically gifted as the competition ; picture doesn't look as pristine either

A neat introduction to HD home cinema but not quite the ultimate package at the money

Samsung HT-BD1220 review


This Blu-ray home-cinema-in-a-box system sports impressive looks, and an even more impressive price tag. Is it a Blu bargain?

A fine introduction to HD home cinema, and superb value for money

Excellent system


I bought this unit at the weekend to replace a Panasonic DVD system. The picture and sound quality from it is amazing, much better than my old Panasonic. It connects effortlessly to my Freesat box and Samsung 40" TV. I would not hesitate to recommend...

Samsung HT-BD1220


I have had this product for almost a month now, and I have to say it has been outstanding. I had been contemplating going Blu Ray for a while, and started looking at the various options available. To be completely honest at the time of purchase there...
