Excerpt: I love this thing!!! I got one last christmas (08) and Ive loved it ever since. In conjunction with my new Samsung TV its amazing! You get netflix, as long as you have a subscription, it connects to the internet and the picture and sound that come out of this thing is incredible, It was expensive, thats why I asked for it in my christmas list, lol. Anyways, for me just having the netflix on the thing has paid for itself. It stylish, and so easy to use.
Excerpt: In June my DVD player started giving me a lot of problems (even though I only had it less then 2 years!) so I decided to just get a new one. (It was really cheap anyway - I guess you get what you pay for.) The more I thought about it though, the more I thought it would make more sense to invest in a Blu-Ray player (since DVD is going the way of VHS - In my honest opinion). Besides, I watch A LOT of movies and I deserve something good!
Excerpt: We purchased this blu-ray player using a Best Buy gift certificate we earned with our credit card reward points, so technically we didn't have to pay anything for it, but after using it, I would certainly pay money for it! I love the picture quality when watching Blu-Rays of course, but it's also great with DVDs! I love the USB feature, too. Our young girls are rough on DVDs, so we like to copy them (dont' worry, just for our own use) and put them on a hard drive.
Excerpt: I got this as a gift (awesome gift!) and year ago and haven't looked back. This was one of the first Blu Ray players to offer Netflix streaming capability and now that I've had that a year I can't imagine not having it. It's funny, I use the player more for streaming videos than playing Blu Rays or even DVDs. Blu Ray discs do look good and you can certainly tell the difference with sharp, clean images. DVDs get a bump in image quality too although that's not really...
Excerpt: This is a pretty fast blu ray player. I hate waiting around for things to load, and the loading / bootup speeds are comparable to the PS3 / Oppos. It is a little fidgety loading discs though. Sometimes it spits out perfect looking discs and tells me it's unrecognizable. It has a nice looking sleek reflective blue front panel. The left portion of it flips down to reveal the tray. The tray is a bit flimsy looking ( feels a little filmsy too ), but gets the job done.
Summary: Literally 80% of rental Blu-rays won't play on this. I have a 5-year old Blu-ray player which works better and play more discs than this one after only a few months. Disappointing and not recommended.
Summary: After much research we purchased the LG 390 in Jan 2010. Now in June 2012 the disc unit has failed. It took in the DVD and will not read it. Worse, it will not eject the disc. After trying all combinations of powering up, powering down, disconnecting the power cord, using the remote, using the controls on the unit, etc.....I gave up and disassembled the unit to retrieve the DVD. Inside it is just a PC with a disk drive.
Summary: We have had this unit for over two years. It was fine for the first few months and it has totally sucked since then. I have much frustration with it's fickleness with discs. It seems to cherry pick which ones it wants to play and then eventually stops playing them all together. LG stated they fixed it in the firmware updates but as we have the latest update and the crap still doesn't work, I would just highly suggest to avoid the player all together.
Summary: This player has always been a bit picky about the Blu-ray disks it will play, but after 2 1/2 years it has pretty much given up on them. It will still play DVDs, but I didn't spend $300 on this thing to play DVDs, and I'm quite done sending disks back to Netflix unwatched. I've ordered a 3D Panasonic model, and I'll be adding the LG to the recycle pile where it belongs.
Uhhh, other than Watching DVDs, finding WiFi -- it's wonderful

Summary: This Device worked great for about 30 days (since 2009). Then it stopped recognizing random DVDs. I was doing P90X and randomly, one by one, they'd 'stop' working.... but only on this player. Taking the DVD to my other player, the disk worked just fine. There are postings on the Internet that are replete with warnings about this player -- and they're all true. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. I would further urge you to avoid LG.
