Summary: I was using Google to search for a fix to my Blu-ray player which locks up a third to half way through movies. The funny thing is I didn't use the model number or even manufacturer. The rub......
Summary: Bought the LG as a second player for the bedroom, has worked reliably for 6+ months so far. Not surprising these inexpensive players break down quicky (the entry-level Samsung has many similar complaints). Don't forget good airflow (passive cooling only on unit, as with many others).
Pros: Cheap, quiet, loads relatively quickly compared to other blu-ray players I've seen. No obtrusive bright LED lights when on. DivX supported.
Cons: Remote not compatible with my multi-function wands. Plays DivX, but only in standard def, not HD resolutions (need to master as AVCHD disk if you want to watch HD).
Summary: Minus 1 egg for being and odd size and not coming with an HDMI cable.
Pros: The best thing about this unit is the price. Seems to be of very good quality for how little it costs.
Cons: This thing is very wide and not very deep. It is a real odd-ball when trying to stack it with "normal" sized components. Manufactures have been making component boxes for like 50 years now, can't we settle on a standard depth and width already? One more con which really rubs me wrong is that this...

Summary: I purchased the LG BD270 blu ray dvd player on November 25, 2009, from Amazon. Total cost was $99.99. Approximately one week ago (mid June 2010), the dvd player stopped working. It would not recognize any DVD or blu ray disc that I placed inside it.
Summary: Almost exactly 4 months after I received it, it stopped reading Blu-Ray Discs. Still reads dvd's though. Tech support told me after an hour and half of waiting to download the latest firmware from their website which is BD.8.16.059.A.
Pros: Worked great up until the 4 month mark. Now it doesn't at all. :(
Cons: See "Other thoughts" to hear me whine. About the product itself: My kid's Fisher Price toys feel more sturdy than this. The tray that ejects is so flimsy, I feel like I"m playing operation when I put the disc in. But don't worry, that won't break it. Evidently these things brick themselves after ...
Summary: Wanted a Blu ray player to compliment my HD viewing, after sending one defective unit back to Amazon because it would lock up I was sent a replacement unit. What I got was a unit that sometimes works, sometimes not. I am a netflix subsciber and only am able to play about 50% of movies I recieve.
