LG BD300 - Would recommend

Otis B. Driftwood, Amazon
30 January 2009
  • Summary: I was waiting for prices to drop on Blu Ray DVD players, but alas I could not wait and purchased the LG BD300 with Netflix streaming. So far I am very pleased with the player. The upscaling on this player seems to be better than my previous LG DVD player that upscaled.

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.

Netflxi feature is great!

Gary Cole, Amazon
18 January 2009
  • Summary: I've had my BD300 for 2 weeks now an am quite satisfied. Setup was easy and it downloaded a firmware update as soon as it was connected to my network. Blueray is quite good...not the best I've seen but still quite good. Netflix quality is exceptional...very near DVD quality or better.

Performs as expected

Jack W. McDaniel Jr., Amazon
7 January 2009
  • Summary: We're happy with the LG BD300. It does every thing that was claimed in the marketing material. The "BD live" feature is lame, but it's not the fault of the player, it's just that there is very little compelling content, at least for the handful of bd-live enabled discs that we've purchased.

Great for Blu-Ray but missing WiFi and Netflix is not great

Scott F. Schramm, Amazon
30 December 2008
  • Summary: The quality of the Blu-Ray disks are great when played back and have played regular DVD's and they are much improved over our older player. As with most any Blu-Ray, you will notice not only the improvement in video but was not expecting such a dramtic increase in sound.

Works great with Netflix!

Richard Bitting, Amazon
29 December 2008
  • Summary: I got this for Christmas 2008. Almost returned it until I read further along in these reviews. I could NOT get it to update and that is MANDATORY before it will go online to Netflix. I downloaded them manually and did the upgrade by USB flash drive thinking that would fix the network problem.

Netflix & Verizon FiOs

Amazon Customer, Amazon
27 December 2008
  • Summary: I, too, had trouble getting the product to access the internet through a Verizon FiOs Actiontec router. However, I didn't want to reset the router, as other reviewers have suggested, for fear of messing up my home network.

LG BD300 in time for Thanksgiving

Brian D. Hughes, Amazon
29 November 2008
  • Summary: I ordered the LG BD300 to help entertain a houseful of guests over Thanksgiving and it worked like a champ. Very good picture quality and really easy to set up. I have a ethernet connection near the entertainment setup so did not try wireless.
