Summary: Tomorrow I have a bunch of kids coming over to watch a movie with my daughter but this machine does not play new Blu-ray movies. I will stream, but that is not why I bought a Blu-ray home system. If Samsung will not update their stuff, they should not sell it.
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: 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...
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.
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...
Summary: Liked it when I first got it. Now that's it been used, it's wearing down as the center channel just cuts out randomly and Linkstick no longer work (see Cons section). Samsung says the MOBO needs to be replaced and of course, I have to ship it to them and pay for repair costs.
Pros: -Main Unit and Center Channel look very sleek -IPod dock
Cons: -Not very powerful -Center channel randomly stops working; started happening just after warranty expired (hmm, coincidence?) Only re-seating the plug brings it back and that's a PIA when the system is inside a HT cabinet. It's not the speaker as I've used another Samsung center channel on this un...
Summary: Bought it in July of 2007, it lasted 2 years then stopped working. Power dose not come on just blinking red standby light. Geek squad wants $600.00 to fix. Dont waste your money on this piece of junk.
Summary: I've had this system for a little over a year now. Prior to this my Sony DVD Dream system was still going strong after 10+ yrs. This one has not even gotten that much use yet, but suddenly now it turns psycho during Blu-Ray movies, Netflix, Pandora, everything.
