Good sound for a pre-built home theatre system, stylish, good iPod integration and features

Occasional sound sync problems with DVDs, slightly expensive

If you’re looking for a simple yet feature-filled system to accompany a new flat-screen television, Samsung's home theatre in a box does the trick nicely.

It's a big system, this Samsung Blu-ray one-boxer. Does it deliver a huge performance, too?

For the style-conscious home-cinema fan, the Samsung's well worth a look. But we wish that centre were better

The Samsung HT-BD1255 is a 5.1 surround sound home theatre system with an integrated Blu-ray disc player, an iPod dock, network connectivity and wireless rear speakers.

Samsung’s HT-BD1255 Blu-ray home theatre is a capable system with no crippling flaws. The LG HB954WA offers slightly better value, but this is still a stylish and powerful pre-built home theatre.

Despite the rather plastic look and feel, this Samsung system offers plenty for the money and its audio and visual performance are both rather good for a HTIB system.

Excellent BD image quality ; Wireless PC streaming ; Performs with both movies and music

Lightweight speaker construction ; Wireless PC streaming requires additional dongle ; Subwoofer lets the speaker system down

Despite the rather plastic look and feel, this Samsung system offers plenty for the money and its audio and visual performance are both rather good for a HTIB system. It offers the latest in Blu-ray playback and fits in perfectly with the high gloss...

The Samsung HT-BD1255 is an all in one Home Theatre package that comes with the option of wireless rear speakers. It also has a rather swanky Blu-ray player included in the sales package making it perfect for those wanting to get into the 1080p scene...

All-in-one package, easy to Set Up, Included Blu-ray player, Rich sound. Excellent Blu-ray playback

Some vibrations in front speakers at maximum volume, DVD up scaling could have been better, Subwoofer not as powerful as others

I have the BD1255 coupled with a Samsung 40inch LED display, works beautifully, excellent crips picture, very decent sound. Only issue is that the built-in YouTube function stays on "Retrieving Data..." for a while then finally displays "Please try...

Pretty decent sound quality, fantasic "all-in-one" solution, truckload of features especially if you add on additional wireless accessories

Remote control not very responsive (new batteries, straight aim), bringing up the menu interrupts music playback

the sound quality is amazing i was blown away by the sound when i first set it up and the quality of the picture in 1080 p is fantastic ,the setting up of the product was so strait forward, and all the wires are color coded so you can't make a mistake...

can be loud base wise ..but you can adjust to suit to your own person taste. i did , and mines perfect. now . its a shame the wireless adaptor was not included with the product ..buy you can get this seperate from samsung or other sites online
