Had to laugh.....

J. Shupp, Amazon
13 March 2012
  • 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......

Good value for the money so far

Eric M., Newegg
14 August 2010
  • 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).

Good quality and price, but not perfect

Anonymous, Newegg

  • 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...

DO NOT BUY

  • Summary: I bought this back in September 2009, it played every blueray and dvd just find. Now its been 10 months and I'd be lucky to get a blueray to play on this.
  • Pros: At least turns on?
  • Cons: You need shear luck to play a dvds or bluerays. Cannot play scratched DVDs not even tiny scratched ones. Will not play newer bluerays, ERMMM Avatar.

Spending $100 should last at least a year

D. Richardson "I'm a bored Alabamian looking ..., Amazon
27 June 2010
  • 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.

DO NOT BUY

Todd G., Newegg
28 May 2010
  • 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 ...

cheap made

Steven b., Newegg
30 April 2010
  • Summary: use it as a trim tray than anything else cause this sucks
  • Pros: that it plays blue ray for 90 bucks? thats about it
  • Cons: regular Av jacks are sad, no HD connects or even HDMI for that matter so you are trading down big quality for a cheap piece of c**p

Pay extra $$$ to get quality

Mr. D. Stanley, Amazon
29 April 2010
  • 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.

  • Pros: Cheap blueray player and upscales standard DVD's to 1080p
  • Cons: Tried to play Avatar on blueray and it wouldn't play even after updating the firmware. I'm going to use the player as a second one for the bedroom. It is an ealier model.
