Summary: Well dumb me I bought it at a garage sale and was told it worked. well It did but the remote was chewed on by a dog and only 2 speakers work because the outlets on the back of the blu ray are messed up. the speaker and wires work on the 2 plug ins that work so needless to say I got screwed and to get replacements its going to cost about the same as the whole system.
Summary: I've been happy with Samsung's TV sets but the1250 Home Theater is a POS. Thankfully it died after 4 years of frustration. I have a 10 year old Pioneer DVD/RW that still works great. Also a 20 year old JVC SVCR that works great. My next player will NOT be a Samsung.
Summary: This unit broke multiple times ahd was sent back twice they sent me someone elses unit back last time and it was all scratched up. It broke again. The only way to get the tray to open to put in a disk is to use the remote as the buttons on the unit it self don't work. Lousy unit and difficult to get the surround sound to work with the tv. My Phillips unit is far superior.
Summary: I no longer have this system (got rid of it last year), but I feel compelled to write about the number of tormenting issues I had with this system to warn future buyers. On 8/7/2009, I purchased this system from my local Best Buy store. I loved the Blu Ray movies and the awesome surround sound... until things went down hill. Three weeks later, a disc got stuck in the tray. When it finally came out, the tray broke.
doesn't play blurays, Samsung Support could care less

Summary: I purchased this item about 3 years ago. i always liked my unit, but about a year ago i began to make the switch from dvd to bluray. some bluray discs would play, others would not. after talking to support i discovered that even though it told me my firmware was up to date, there had been many new updates since. I now have to manually install all of the updates by downloading them from the Samsung site.
Summary: We purchased this product less than 3 years ago. It is difficult to use unless you are a real "techie". WHen listening to iPod, the TV has to be on. After about 18 months, we started to have problems and had to send the unit in to be repaired. Another year later, the unit started to stop in the middle of movies and start skipping all over the movie. NOt a good situation when your 3 year old twins are trying to watch Cars or Toy Story.
Summary: My parents bought this home theatre system on a whim and I'm not sure what their motivations were for buying this particular system, but they got screwed over. They just started getting into watching things on Netflix, so when I came home today I wanted to help them set up their Netflix on this device since they are now having to connect their computers to a different television (which is also the smallest television in the house) in order to watch anything on Netflix.
Not for the audiophile, but a great home theater in a box for the money

Summary: For a basic, entry level home theater in a box I couldn't be happier! I have it set up on my 32" 1080P LG in our bedroom. While the sound doesn't exactly WOW the audio nerd in me it's certainly impressive for the cost of this unit! I especially like the all in one aspect of this receiver. The only down side for me was reading the nightmare blogs about updating the firmware (definitely do your homework before attempting).
Summary: After getting used to the set up of the system and menu options, I would have to say that this system is freakin awesome. Although the system is quite basic in the fact that an equilizer is not built in and speakers have to be set manually, it is still a great system. At first I was kind of turned off because the quality of the sound was a bit off but after some experimenting I found that the system sounds best when the delay time for speakers is set to "0" as well as...
