DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!

Albert, Amazon
6 September 2012
  • Summary: First off Samsung support is dismal. This quit working - had the dreaded "Loading" flashing on the display. Sent it in for repair $30 shipping $80 for the repair. Their packing for the return to me was a joke. Basically it was just rolling around in the box. About 45 days later same problem. Guess what, the repair was only warrantied for 30 days. They wouldn't budge on an extension.

  • Summary: I got this product and had an electronics geek try to get it working but he couldn't do it after 2 hours. I returned this item. Too bad it had a lot of potential.

Broke Shortly After Warranty Expired

Kevin B, Amazon
16 March 2012
  • Summary: Purchased this item in April 2010, and the Blu-Ray Player stopped playing (just after warranty expired). Rather than get this fixed, I purchased a diffent Blu-Ray player but still use the speakers from the sound bar. Like the sound bar but I would avoid purchasing a combo product in the future.

Big disappoint

lcbrady36 "lcbrady36", Amazon
27 October 2011
  • Summary: This was a big disappointment for us. We have had nothing but problems with it. The sound will randomly skip, the DVDs will get stuck, it will sporadically not connect to the Internet and the list of problems goes on... Not to mention customer service at Samsug is the worst... Stay clear of this item!!!!

Don't buy this

Mulhobbie, Amazon
3 October 2011
  • Summary: Samsung HT-BD8200 Blu-Ray Sound Bar Home Theater System (Black) Blu-Ray player started acting up almost immediately after I bought it. One year later, the player no longer plays any type of disc properly. I can buy a replacement blu-ray player and use it just as an A/V, but the connections are insufficient. I don't think Samsung sells this new anymore - but don't buy it used!

  • Summary: I'm not going to waste much more of my time on this. Bottom line is I have experienced most of the negative aspects of this product cited by other customers. Don't waste your time or money.

Great features, poor quality

Jennifer M. Sparks "IntrepidJen", Amazon
4 July 2010
  • Summary: About two weeks after I received the unit, it wouldn't power on. I called Samsung support and they offered to repair/replace the unit, no questions asked. I returned it, and about 2 weeks later I received the replacement - I can't tell if they repaired the unit or sent me a new one. The replacement unit won't play DVDs (Audio CDs seem to work). Another call to Samsung resulted in me upgrading the firmware, which didn't solve the problem.

disc loading mechanism has jammed

P. L. Seah "pete_seah", Amazon
17 January 2010
  • Summary: Like another reviewer here, my disc loading mechanism has jammed. But I am worse off, after only 2 days. Now awaiting Samsung to come see to it. I have doubts as to whether the mechanism is actually robust enough to last for a year or months of use now. Anynet is dumb with this product. Any sound settings has to be made in Blue Ray mode with no disc in it, or the disc in Stop mode.

IF YOU ARE SANE, DO NOT BUY THIS!!

BJL411, Amazon
16 January 2010
  • Summary: Unfortunately I wasn't sane and did buy it a couple months ago. It does not work. It never worked. I've gone bk and forth with Samsung in an endless circle. I bought their great tv and then decided to add this EXPENSIVE piece of garbage to it. I might as well have taken $700 and opened my toilet lid, throw it in there, and click the handle and watch it twirl down the drain. The sound is pretty crappy.
