  • Summary: 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 Blu-ray Home Theater System (HTiB) Review

10 August 2009
  • Conclusion: 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 pretty well in almost any size room (just don't get greedy!). Overall, it's a slick, compact starter package.
  • Pros: Speaker wire in the box!, Netflix and Pandora streaming ups the entertainment ante, No receiver needed
  • Cons: No Gracenote access or visual artwork display for iPod, No Shuffle for iPod users, Wireless capabilities are available, but not out of the box

Samsung HT-BD1250R

What Hi-Fi?
16 February 2010
  • Excerpt: There's a key difference between this package and some of its closest peers. This Samsung system uses four standmount-style, compact satellites (alongside a hefty subwoofer and conversely, a particularly slim and wand-like centre channel). There are intrinsic advantages to a package like this: if you're pushed for space it's easier to accommodate and four identical satellites should aid cohesion, but by the same token we wouldn't expect the same dynamic power or scale as...
  • Pros: More compact than its rivals, plenty of functionality for the money
  • Cons: Satellites found lacking at the bottom end, black levels could be better, sound is average
