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.
Summary: If you have NetFlix and you want a blue-ray player, then you don't need to look any further. This thing is truly awesome. SO EASY to setup and get the Netflix running. It's a freaking snap. Just go for it!!
Summary: Comments about LG Electronics BD300 Network Blu-ray Disc Player: This is quite attractive, very compact yet very reliable. Can play almost anything you want to put in it from MP3’s to CD’s and DVD’s. It’s easy to work and I was able to have it running within 25 minutes of getting it out of the box.
Summary: I have had this LG Blu-ray player for several weeks now and I love it. I researched all available players and found this to be the one that met my needs. I love the BD live and the Netflix connection. Set up was so easy, automatically searched for live updates available and downloaded to player.
Summary: This is a nice player with Netflix on demand built in. I've had a few other Blu-Ray players as well as HD DVD players. One irritation is how long the load boot-up time took for these HiDef players. However... this LG BD300 is the exception.
Summary: I've owned the PS3, Sony BDP-S350, Panasonic BD35K, and the Samsung BD1500 in my quest to find a Blu Ray player that doesn't stink! The LG BD 300 is BY FAR the best I've owned. It uses a high definition interface in the menu structure, the controls are well-thought-out, the remote is great and fits...
Summary: I bought the LG BD-300 together with a 50ft ethernet cable and the new Batman Dark Night DVD. It took me about 10 minutes to hook the device up to my TV, receiver, and home network router. Once I turned the device on it grabbed a firmware update, downloaded it, and came back up.
Summary: There are a few reviews that state that you cannot use a wireless connection to your lan with this unit. That is not true. I am using a a Linksys Wireless - G router for my network and a Linksys Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge at the BD-300.
Summary: I bought the LG BD-300 about a month ago from Circuit City for $349. I can't say enough about the machine. I LOVE IT! Let me tell you about the features. First, the blue-ray player is first class. It has a very short start-up time.
