Summary: What I originally considered a great player for a reasonable price, not has me regretting the purchase. It can't play certain discs (see above), and there are no firmware updates in sight (and haven't been for maybe over a year).
Pros: Great features (although would have liked Pandora too). Reasonably quick start-up times (at the time).
Cons: Not updated in over a year. Won't play certain Blu-ray discs: "Kick A**" [really?!?!? I can't use the actual title of a real movie???], "Invite Me In".
Summary: I will come back and change this review to 5 stars if LG adds Hulu to this player. (Hint Hint)
Pros: It works. Setup was insanely easy for me. I installed it, connected it to my router, turned it on and it was a go. Netflix playback works awesome for me, but I do not have a 1080 capable TV.
Cons: The only con is the USB port under the drive bay cover on the front. Since I rarely use BrL, it isnt a huge deal for me. Not being able to play network-shared video/music was a big con for me, but with just about any hardware, always a tradeoff (price in this case).
Excerpt: I have the LG BD370 Blu-ray player, it has unique design and different with other Blu-ray players. LG BD370 placed the disc tray hidden behind the automatic door on the left hand, that’s the reason why I say the design is unique, because most DVD and Blu-ray player placed …
Summary: my previous DVD player - can 'remember' 10 different DVDs where it was stopped. But this one doesn't memorize the current blu-ray/DVD where it was stopped. If you take it out and put it back, you have to start all over.
Pros: quick starting, excellent picture quality. I use it to stream netflix, youtube movies - hassle free.
Summary: This player is good for a room that you don't watch a lot of movies in, but don't buy it for your home theatre.
Pros: It's a BD player with Netflix for a decent price, but there are caveats.
Cons: You CANNOT play ANY video files on a USB stick with this unit. That is not supported on the North American version for some odd reason. Requires a 1 GB+ USB stick to be inserted for BD Live. The menus and manual read like they were translated from Korean word-by-word.
Summary: Blu-Ray players have become like cell phones "Look at what my phone can do, I can make a call and fax my boss and check my email and take a picture and........". I bought my cell phone to.....make calls to other people (I know, how absurd). I bought my blu-ray player to.....play blu-rays.
Pros: Quick loading, Beautiful video display, Simplink, Internet options
Cons: You can find faults with the "other" features of this player, but for it's main intended use, it excels.
Summary: Like several other readers on this board have mentioned, my Bluray player started having problems reading DVD's two to three months after the purchase date, first every once in awhile and then more frequently. Within the next two to three months, it stopped reading Bluray discs altogether.
Cons: I made the mistake of upgrading the software. Now it won't work and I have to send it in. Not only do I have to pay for this because it's past its 90 day warranty (but I only bought it 6 months ago) but it take a week to get the shipping label and it will be gone for 8-12 weeks for repair. Yes, I...
