Samsung Builds Blu into Bar

Samsung's HT-BD8200 soundbar has an integrated Blu-ray player, wireless sub, 300 total watts of power, 2.1-channel virtual surround technology, wi-fi readiness, Netflix savvy, and Pandora compatibility for $800. Also shown were a Blu-less bar, plus a couple of HTiBs, one based on a slim tower, one based on small satellites.

I'd like to hear comments, thoughts, and user reviews on the Samsung HT-BD8200. I currently own the previous generation HT-X810 (non-Blu Ray) Soundbar and I'm seriously thinking about upgrading. My main gripe with x810 is that the mechanical cd cover doesn't work well and i continuously have video issues when connected to my Samsung LCD.
