Samsung HT-BD1250

 

DVD home-theater-in-box systems seem from their spec sheets to offer a lot of value, but are often seriously disappointing to use, with lackluster audio and video being the norm. So far, our experience with Blu-ray HTIBs has been the exact opposite;...

5.1 home theater system; built-in Blu-ray player; best-in-class sound quality; excellent image quality on Blu-ray movies; Netflix and Pandora streaming; fast Blu-ray load times; iPod dock included; attractive exterior design

Design has some usability issues; no video inputs; no automatic speaker calibration; PC streaming feature is more trouble than it's worth

Samsung's HT-BD1250 home theater system has built-in Blu-ray, streaming media from Netflix and Pandora, and excellent audio and video quality, making it our top budget Blu-ray all-in-one system.

Samsung HT-BD1250 Blu-ray Home Theater System (HTiB)Review

 

Samsung's complete Blu-ray home theater in a box (HTiB) system is ready to rock, with a variety of A/V goodies right out of the box.

The Samsung HT-BD1250 had plenty to keep us entertained. We were pretty fat and happy with a full diet of endless music and video from a variety of external services. The Blu-ray playback wasn't too bad to boot. The speakers are small, but can crank...

"Decent, but certainly not great."

 

I bought this HT system because it was well priced and allowed for Blu Ray, Netflix connectivity, and surround sound all in one package. The look of the actual unit is nice and goes well with Samsung TVs however the grilled satellite speakers would...

Good Blu Ray player

Horrible Interface

"What is wrong with Samsung?"

 

Samsung used to be a GREAT company. What happened to it? Never ever again.

When it works, it works well.

I get crackling out of the right front speaker and sometimes it cuts out completely. The helpdesk said that the patch would fix it. It did not. This is completely bogus.

Won't play blu-rays in less than 18 months!

 

Paid just under $500.00 bucks less than 2 years ago and it hasn't played a single blu-ray in 6 months! AND NO SUPPORT FROM SAMSUNG WITH THEIR FIRMWARE UPDATES! AVOID THIS PLAYER AND SAMSUNG!

"Excellent Bang for your Buck"

 

All in all, you're getting a very good HTIB including a Blu-ray player for under $500.00, and sometimes under $400.00 if you shop around and/or wait for sales. Yes there were issues with the firmware on some of the products, and it took you awhile to...

Pros: Blu-ray player, streaming Netflix and Pandora, iPod/iPhone dock (tho I haven't used this yet, as I have neither an iPod or iPhone). Exterior has a nice finish to it, very clean looking. Speakers have great sound and good subwoofer bass, in a reasona

Cons: Either I haven't figured out how to, or there is no way to control the subwoofer volume. It hasn't been a big issue for me, so I didn't really look too far into it. As with any black/dark colored electronics, it's a dust magnet. The speakers are goo

"Unreliable; Samsung unresponsive to issues"

 

I've had nothing but trouble with my BD1250, and have had no luck in having Samsung address the issues. Here are the problems I've had:

- Netflix, Pandora, YouTube and Blockbuster accessible

- Randomly refuses to play DVD or Blu-ray menus
