Samsung HT-BD8200

 

One-of-a-kind sound bar with built-in Blu-ray player; sleek design; Wi-Fi capable with included USB dongle; Netflix, Pandora, YouTube, and Blockbuster streaming; wireless subwoofer; image quality and disc-loading speeds comparable with standalone...

Too many operational glitches; so-so sound quality; tall design may block TV when placed on a TV stand; limited connectivity; lacks expandable Samsung Apps platform on other newer Samsung home theater products.

The Samsung HT-BD8200 packs a Blu-ray player into a sound bar for unparalleled simplicity, but disappointing sound quality and operational glitches limit its appeal.

Samsung HT-BD8200 Sound Bar with Blu-ray & Netflix

 

The Samsung HT-BD8200 is a home theater sound bar equipped with a Blu-ray player and wireless subwoofer. This might be the best match I've seen for flat panel TVs in a long time. It's impressive

Samsung HT-BD8200 2.1-Channel Blu-ray Home Theater System (HTiB)Review

 

It's the new math: Samsung adds a Profile 2.0 Blu-ray player to their latest soundbar, while subtracting the need for ethernet and subwoofer cables.

It's a Blu-ray player, and a speaker system, and a wireless streaming media device. In fact, there's little the Samsung HT-BD8200 can't do. But I believe that its substantial price tag reflects the esthetics, the convenience and the underlying...

"Worst machine I have evr had in my life"

Only thing I like about it is the color...black

Samsung is a horrible company. For those of you buying an extended service plan or even a basic service plan, don't waste your money. You will thank me later. I have wasted 3 months without my DVD player. Sent it back 2x and still broken.

"Broken after 17 months of Faults"

 

Product was faulty from the beginning and just got worse until it died. Woudn't touch another Samsung product. Will be sticking with Panasonic and Sony products in future, as they realise that the customer experience doesn't end at the design stage,...

Looks OK, nice color

1. Faulty sound and difficulty syncing with TV

Looks OK, nice color

1. Faulty sound and difficulty syncing with TV ; 2. Refused to eject until left unplugged or coaxed to work ; 3. Finally ate my version of Avatar and refused to eject at 17 months. Consumer protection spoke to them and they refused to repair

"Flawed Product with HORRIBLE Customer Support"

 

Our experience with Samsung customer support has been MISERABLE. Purchased the device in August and used it for 3 weeks or so before being instructed to ship it back. A replacement was approved on October 13. As of December 15, we are still awaiting a...

Excellent set of features and nice designing.

Our HT-BD8200 would power on and off at unexplained times. Working with tech support, it was determined the box would need to be returned.
