ANOTHER CRASHED LG BD300 - No Service - do not buy

P. Smargiassi, Amazon
15 February 2010
  • Summary: I bought this player in Dec. 2008. Through the year it started dropping the network connection. It got worst and worst until it would not work with Netflix or youtube. Now the DVD player is broke. SO IT IS A BOAT ANCHOR. The Warranty is a joke. WARRANTY Limited Warranty 1 Year Parts/90 Days Labor Even if it was longer, LG service does not respond. There is NO SERVICE. NO MORE LG PRODUCTS for me.

Totally Disgusted

Kellee C. "Tilandra", Amazon
2 October 2009
  • Summary: I'm not sure if it's the firmware updates, or simply poor quality laser heads for the player, but after THREE months, it stopped reading regular DVDs. After SIX months, it stopped playing Blu-Ray disks. The Netflix streaming still worked fine, but since I have an XBox360, that feature was redundant and not worth keeping the machine in my A/V stack. I'll never buy an LG product again.

LG BD300 Network Blu-ray Disc Player STOPS PLAYING DVDS

J Hague "JoAnn", Amazon
17 September 2009
  • Summary: I want to add my voice to the one-star reviewer whose LG BD300 blu-ray player stopped playing DVDs. Ours stopped, too. It still plays blu-rays, but forget DVDs. LG will "repair" the problem for $69 (plus parts if you are past the one-year parts warranty period). We've owned our player for about 10 months. It is now worthless to us 50% of the time. BE FOREWARNED ABOUT THIS DEFECT.

LG BD300 Network Blu-Ray Disc Player

muukow, Rate it all!
10 August 2009
  • Summary: I have had this Lg for about 3 weeks now.I mainly wanted it for the Netflix streeming and wireless capability,why not upgrade to Blu-Ray too all in one machine! The wireless set up was easy I entered the password for my Linksys WRT54GT router and it was online in no time! The router is about 40 ft away two rooms down and the unit is almost at the bottom of the Av cabinet!

Stopped playing regular DVDs

E. Homko, Amazon
22 May 2009
  • Summary: A nice product with nice features at a good price, BUT after a few months it began having issues playing regular DVDs (while still playing BluRay fine). After a few more weeks it refused to play ANY regular DVD. Have been trying to get LG to fix it for several weeks but so far still getting the run-around.

BluRay player won't play DVDs

Charlotte Tressler, Amazon
5 May 2009
  • Summary: We got the LG BD300 for Christmas. It worked fine for two months, but after a firmware update for streaming YouTube videos it would not play DVDs anymore. It plays BluRay discs and the Netflix streaming function still works, but it will not play DVDs. We have contancted LG and they say we have to mail the unit back and pay a $69 repair fee. There are many on-line references to other BD300 owners experiencing the same problem after the YouTube update.

Top of the Line!

Jared W. Jarvi Connection, Amazon
11 March 2009
  • Summary: As a professional in the custom A/V industry I shy away from getting myself and my clients wrapped up in products that fail to match up to the HYPE. The LG BD300 continues to do more than I imagined. I was very pleased to show my last client the upgrade to the product software so now it's even a YOUTUBE video player as well as NETFLIX and BLUERAY.

Got Netflix connected

John E. Hoover, Amazon
21 January 2009
  • Summary: I bought this player to see if Netflix could be an alternative to cable television movie services. At my TV, I have a coaxial and an ethernet connection, the latter attached to a router. I could not get the item to work through the router, despite talking with Netflix and LG CSRs. It did work when I connected the ethernet directly to my cable modem.

It's OK

Cramertivity, Amazon
18 January 2009
  • Summary: First the good. It plays Blu-ray and (most) DVDs like it ought to with excellent video quality. It has the 7.1 sound output it ought to have. It looks nice. It hooks up to Netflix (sometimes) and plays back those programs at pretty good quality. The not so good. The internet network hook up is tenuous at best. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I'll troubleshoot the network, and it's always fine, it's the LG player that has problems.
