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

Expert review by:

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...

Samsung HT-BD8200 Blu-ray Soundbar

 

Want Blu-ray but don't have space for a full surround sound system? Look no further than the HT-BD8200.

With that USB port handling wireless or BD Live storage duties, Samsung has sensibly provided another USB port on the right-hand side for media playback. This supports USB sticks, MP3 players and even external FAT 16/32 HDDs, and it'll play DivX HD,...

Samsung HT-BD8200 review

 

The Samsung HT-BD8200 is a truly solid performer, and well worth considering if it fits in with your current equipment stylistically. But it's not the best-specified machine in terms of connectivity -- if you're looking for an AV receiver, you'd be...

Excellent picture and sound quality ; IPod dock ; Good networking options

Bass can occasionally be overpowering ; Not enough inputs for other equipment

Conclusion The Samsung HT-BD8200 is a very likeable piece of equipment. If it were slightly cheaper it would be ideal, especially for entry-level users who are unsure of the benefits of Blu-ray even though they often have HD televisions crying out for...
