Samsung HT-BD1250 Blu-ray Home Cinema System

 

The Samsung HT-BD1250's performance doesn't quite match its rivals', but it's still a fine one-box Blu-ray system.

Samsung HT-BD1250R review

 

This little Samsung Blu-ray kit is ideal for smaller rooms thanks to its satellite speakers. But does it deliver small-town performance too?

A tidy little Blu-ray system for smaller rooms, but there’s better performance and value to be found elsewhere

Samsung HT-BD1250R review

 

It's got appeal in terms of its lack of space, but we found this Samsung to be wanting in its sound and image handling skills

More compact than its rivals ; plenty of functionality for the money

Satellites found lacking at the bottom end ; black levels could be better ; sound is average

You get plenty for your money with the HT-BD1250 – but if you can rustle together an extra £150, there are better alternatives

Samsung HT-BD1250 review

 

DVD home-theater-in-box systems seem from their spec sheets to offer a lot of value, but are often seriously disappointing to use, with lackluster audio and video being the norm. So far, our experience with Blu-ray HTIBs has been the exact opposite;...

5.1 home theater system; built-in Blu-ray player; best-in-class sound quality; excellent image quality on Blu-ray movies; Netflix and Pandora streaming; fast Blu-ray load times; iPod dock included; attractive exterior design.

Design has some usability issues; no video inputs; no automatic speaker calibration; PC streaming feature is more trouble than it's worth.

Samsung's HT-BD1250 home theater system has built-in Blu-ray, streaming media from Netflix and Pandora, and excellent audio and video quality, making it our top budget Blu-ray all-in-one system.

Samsung HT-BD1250

 

The Samsung HT-BD1250 is a one-box home cinema system offering Blu-ray playback and 5.1 surround sound via included speakers and a subwoofer. It outputs 1000W of audio power and supports both BD-Live downloads and digital media playback via USB or...

The Samsung HT-BD1250 represents great value for money thanks to decent all-round AV performance and a bumper crop of useful features. It’s not the best system of its kind in terms of audio, however. Samsung HT-BD1250 is tagged with home cinema,...

Samsung HT-BD1250

 

In the box you get five bookshelf satellites (with cones which, not to be outdone by the Panasonic's bamboo, are made of seaweed), a passive sub and a Blu-ray receiver, which kicks out a claimed 1,000 watts of audio power. Typically for a Samsung...

Loads of features; cool design

Hard high frequencies at times; no HDMI inputs

Samsung HT-BD1250 Blu-ray Home Theater System (HTiB)Review

 

Samsung's complete Blu-ray home theater in a box (HTiB) system is ready to rock, with a variety of A/V goodies right out of the box.

The Samsung HT-BD1250 had plenty to keep us entertained. We were pretty fat and happy with a full diet of endless music and video from a variety of external services. The Blu-ray playback wasn't too bad to boot. The speakers are small, but can crank...
