Samsung is definitely looking for a specific customer with the HT-BD3252. With limited inputs and outputs, we're betting this package will be a great add-on to a display sale. Since you've only got HDMI output (composite doesn't count) and just enough...

Huge waste of money


Do Not Waste your money on this product!!

There isn't anything about this product that is positive

Blue Ray player did not work. Touch pad controls are a joke. Wireless system is rediculous

Great unit, super easy to set up, nice picture/sound


I bought a 46" LED HDTV back in Aug and had multiple problems with it and getting it fixed. The TV HDMI ports started to not work, repair guy sent out, reset the TV, same problems 2 months later and they sent out another repair guy. He replaced the...

Easy to set up ; No problems with the rear speakers, "wireless" means plug in rear speaker receiver unit and then wires from speakers to unit ; Calibration for speakers is really easy, plug mic in, set it where you normally sit, hit calibrate, done

I've had the unit for about 5 months now having problems with the unit. Samsung support said send it to us, you paying to ship it (around $40 per Fedex). We'll take 4 to 6 weeks to try and fix it and send it back sometime around then

Very nice system for an all incuded surround system


Over all, I am very happy with this product. It works well with my Samsung HDTV. Produces excellent picture quality, surround sound is very good, but not excellent. I would recommend.

Nice looking. Interacts well with other Samsung products. Good sound out of rear speakers. No wires leading from player to rear speakers

With command buttons being sensory, my eject button on the player would frequently malfunction and the only way to open the disc tray would be to use the eject button on the remote. Could be a bit more powerful as far as sound output

Awesome but.....


I absolutely love the unit with the exception of:

1. Features (online services and ipod/iphone) ; 2. Video support (mkv, avi, divx, etc) for PC streaming and USB-connected ; 3. Overall A/V quality

SWA 4000 (wireless unit). The wireless receiver unit is extremely loud and detracts from overall sound quality. I've sent in to samsung with no improvement. Even worse they do not include wired inputs for the rear speakers so I cant even go wired

Good deal for the features


I think this is a great product I got this for a lot less than the cnet price listed from best buy and I think it is a great unit at that price. The HDMI inputs are very nice because most HTS in this price range may have one input if any. The speakers...

Wireless speakers, blu-ray, stream .mkv wireless from home network (mac and windows), stream pandora/netflix. Very easy setup includes wireless adapter. HDMI inputs

Wireless network takes time to initialize. I hate how blu-ray makes you watch previews and warnings for something I already bought. (Not Samsungs fault)

Somewhat Disappointing


Good but not perfect.

Decent sounds quality. Wireless music and movie streaming from PC to reciever works well. Wireless rear speaker set works well. Internet music streaming is good

It's great that it has 2 HDMI inputs and an FM tuner, however, in order to switch between them, you must go to the base unit to push the function button. It has no way to change the function with the remote control. C'Mon man

Overall good sound and easy to set-up


If you pay full price beware, look for sale prices at max of 599.00 range.

2 HDMI inputs, wireless rear speakers, on-sreen display of Ipod

This is my second system- the first Netflix stopped streaming, the new system power comes on by itself sometimes so rather than take back again, I added a power strip cord. My Sony system had better sound choices are better than Samsung's

works fine except for a few flaws


This system works well for the modest budget and a medium or small size living room. If Samsung gives us the firmware download that will fix the sound drop issue this would get 3.5 stars. I read some blogs that said sending the system to Samsung did...

easy set up with the color coded wires A CAVEMAN CAN DO IT! xbox360 gaming is pretty loud. The Ipod jack is a plus. Has 2 HDMI inputs 1 output. Wireless rear speakers keep the living room neat

Sound drop outs a plenty,can't adjust speaker settings unless you are in disc mode which bites

Great unit easy setup


The biggest headache I had was not with the Samsung unit, buit with me and my Pioneer PDP-4260HD. It's an older plasma and previooulsy I had only hooked up through component cables. Well I made the switch to HDMI with this unit and I got bubkiss. After...

Good picture quality and sound. I love the wireless rear speakers for easy setup. And the wireless network connection was a snap with the PBC hookup

Getting the balance right on the speakers is a bit tricky and the auto sound calibration was WAY off
