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...

The Samsung HT-BD1250's performance doesn't quite match its rivals', but it's still a fine one-box Blu-ray system.

Samsung HT-BD1250R review

 

Given its low price, the Samsung HT-BD1250R's picture quality is impressive. Its sonic performance is also admirable, if not perfect. Packing in a number of neat extras, such as an iPod dock, it's a tempting proposition for those after a budget Blu-ray...

Excellent video performance ; Easy to set up ; Can stream media from a PC ; Offers an iPod dock

Subwoofer is rather over-enthusiastic

Conclusion Together with some neat features, like the iPod dock and media-streaming functionality, the Samsung HT-BD1250R delivers great picture quality. While it won't knock your socks off in the sonic department, its performance is still admirable,...

This little Samsung Blu-ray kit is ideal for smaller rooms thanks to its satellite speakers. But does it deliver small-town performance too?

A tidy little Blu-ray system for smaller rooms, but there's better performance and value to be found elsewhere

The Samsung HT-BD1250 is a one-box home cinema system offering Blu-ray playback and 5.1 surround sound via included speakers and a subwoofer. It outputs 1000W of audio power and supports both BD-Live downloads and digital media playback via USB or...

The Samsung HT-BD1250 represents great value for money thanks to decent all-round AV performance and a bumper crop of useful features. It’s not the best system of its kind in terms of audio, however. Samsung HT-BD1250 is tagged with home cinema,...

You get plenty for your money with the HT-BD1250 – but if you can rustle together a little extra, there are better alternatives

Expert review by:

Samsung HT-BD1250

 

In the box you get five bookshelf satellites (with cones which, not to be outdone by the Panasonic's bamboo, are made of seaweed), a passive sub and a Blu-ray receiver, which kicks out a claimed 1,000 watts of audio power. Typically for a Samsung...

Loads of features; cool design

Hard high frequencies at times; no HDMI inputs

Consumer review by:

"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.
