Samsung HT-BD1252 5.1-Channel System

 

It's low price comes with some sacrifices, but fortunately they don't mar the HT-BD1252 overly.

As we joined them together, we were taken aback by the poor build quality of the components. It’s not a great surprise at this sort of price but nevertheless it doesn’t suggest amazing sound quality is on the cards. The speakers are light, plasticky...

Samsung HT-BD1252 review

 

The Samsung HT-BD1252's build quality and audio performance could be better, but it delivers crisp Blu-ray pictures and offers a wealth of useful features, like an iPod dock and media-streaming abilities. We think it offers good value for money

Classy looks ; Great video performance ; Good range of features ; Low price tag

Speakers feel slightly plasticky ; Subwoofer can be overly booming ; No video inputs

Conclusion Although its tall speakers are rather plasticky, and its sonic performance isn't as refined as we'd have liked, the Samsung HT-BD1252 still impresses with its crisp Blu-ray playback, impressive range of features and low price tag. Overall,...

Samsung HT-BD1252 review

 

Samsung's minimalist HT-BD1252 player has subtle touch controls along the top and a small flap on the front panel that hides a USB port.

A budget home cinema kit, the HT-BD1252's tinny speakers don't impress, and it has limited features.

Samsung HT-BD1252 review

 

Bearded audiophiles might turn up their noses at them, but all-in-one systems are the saviour of the budget buyer. Samsung's HT-BD1252 provides cash-strapped punters a way of upgrading to Blu-ray and getting a full 5.1 sound system into the bargain....

Dazzling looks and a generous feature list

Ropey speaker build quality and some sonic shortcomings. Optional extras hike up the price

Not the last word in Blu-ray sound quality but plentiful features and punchy pictures will keep you entertained
