Summary: I've had this player for two and a half years; I got a bargain price at the time on Amazon and I haven't regretted buying it. I've used it to play DVDs (and the occasional Blu-Ray), and to stream video from my Netflix account. It's not had intensive use over its lifetime, but lately I've been using it more, both to play DVDs and stream Netflix. (I rarely use it for YouTube although that feature seems to work fine).
Great DVD/Blu-ray player. Just don't expect NetFlix to work!

Summary: This has been a reliable and easy-to-use Blu-ray player for us for a couple of years. However, one of the main reasons we got it was to stream Netflix, and there it has been a miserable failure. These days about half the Netflix titles crash the player to the point of restarting, and this is apparently par for the course with this player according to online forums.
Summary: We purchased two of these when they first came out and play them at least once a day, sometimes to watch two or three movies in a row. Absolutely no problems what-so-ever!! Excellent picture and sound is delivered to your HD television (which also happen to be LG). No complaints! Definitely recommended. Especially for the price!! When we bought ours, they were almost $200.00 each!! WOW! Never buy anything on the judgment of one reviewer.
Summary: I have owned the LG BD370v player since 2009. Mostly used it for watching Netflix streaming. I also own a Roku streaming device. The LG player's firmware is very poor and has a lot of bugs. Lately they have finally started to provide firmware upgrades, but this device is still poor compared to my Roku device. I don't think that they put much effort into the software design. I have only played about a dozen bluRay and DVD discs on the unit.
Summary: I bought this unit specifically because I wanted the Netflix streaming. I have not had any of the over-heating problems others have reported. It has worked great for all the time I have had it. My one complaint is I can find no way at all to turn on close captioning when I stream things from Netflix. Other than that, I am very pleased with it.
Summary: I've owned this for over a year now and it has been nothing but problems from the start -- unfortunately, none of these problems sufficient to invoke the warranty. I've been impressed with LG before, and that was the real reason I purchased this DVD player. Never again. After playing a DVD and ejecting the disk, that disk is hot to the touch -- not just warm, but hot like a cup of coffee.
Summary: Well, it worked nicely for about a year-and-a-half. BUT...for some reason LG must have stopped putting the firmware updates on the servers. For the first time, a Blu-Ray disc refused to play, giving me a message that my player's firmware needed updating. I ran through the update (via internet) but it claimed the firmware was fully updated.
Summary: I have encountered the same problem as many, started after about a year, if even that long. First my dvd tray wouldn't open properly, then i had flickering almost a pixelated flickering , then it became more frequent and eventually the dvd just wouldn't play, tried multiple dvds and tried a new HDMI cable and no success, guessing I fell victim to what everyone else did, up until it broke it was a decent DVD player but ended up trying my luck with a panasonic
Summary: The player is good, especially given that I paid $150 in November 2009 and it costs $250 now... The main drawbacks for me are 1) can not play video files from the USB drive. Why? It remains a mystery... 2) it seems impossible to de-zone. I have plenty of movies I brought from Europe and they are now useless, unless I rip them (e.g. with DVDShrink) and re-burn them zone-free, a time-expensive process!
Summary: I have owned this unit for well over a year. I was happy with it for about two weeks. It has always been treated gently, and asked to perform about twice a week, as it was a part of my dedicated movie screening room. As I said, about two weeks in it started having trouble bringing up blu-ray menu screens. Then it stopped playing DVD's altogether, then it would freeze and crash during blu-ray playback.
