Samsung HT-BD1250

 

Editors' note : Although our testing of the Samsung HT-BD1250 was largely positive, Samsung Blu-ray players have consistently scored low with CNET users. We examined this issue extensively in this blog , and it's worth considering before making a...

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...

Samsung HT-BD1250 Blu-ray Home Cinema System

 

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

 

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

Samsung HT-BD1250

 

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

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

"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

Would not buy again

 

Liked it when I first got it. Now that's it been used, it's wearing down as the center channel just cuts out randomly and Linkstick no longer work (see Cons section). Samsung says the MOBO needs to be replaced and of course, I have to ship it to them...

Main Unit and Center Channel look very sleek ; IPod dock

Not very powerful ; Center channel randomly stops working; started happening just after warranty expired (hmm, coincidence?) Only re-seating the plug brings it back and that's a PIA when the system is inside a HT cabinet. It's not the speaker as I've...

Good Price, Bad Sound

 

I have had this system for quite a while, but I started having problems within just a couple months of owning it.

The price of the system was great, much cheaper than the same thing at another store. Picture looks great, sound is very good (when it works right). Shipment was much faster than expected

The sound constantly cuts out, making it very difficult to watch movies or listen to CDs. Sometimes likes to freeze, then it has to be shut off for a few seconds to get everything working again. Occaisionally when playing CDs the beginning of the song...
