Summary: I would definitely not recommend this unit. The audio cuts in and out when you play music cd's and it works about half the time when you go to eject a disc. I have tried to update the firmware to the latest version off of the website and it errors out every time. I would steer clear and spend the extra bucks for a better player.
Excerpt: Bought this to put in the bedroom and have been very surprised at the quality and ease of set up. It has an ethernet port to add to your home network. The picture quality is awesome. Hooked it up through the home theatre and am impressed with the sound. The DVD up-convert produced a true 1080p picture. The set up was a little confusing at first as to what each audio setting was provided. The unit is small and fits nicely on top of the other equipment without being...
Excerpt: I purchased this blu ray player about 3 weeks ago and was happily surprised by its performance. Its up-scaling of DVDs is fantastic. The picture quality it delivers is great; I never liked the picture on my year old LCD TV before. I would have preferred a player that would stream Netflix and Vudu but for the price I am more than happy with the player. There is no wifi but if you're looking for a basic player to play DVDs and blu rays and are on a budget I would...
Excerpt: Got this unit from Walmart... and was surprised to have a price tag of 65$.. while other comparable brands were around 100 or more. The next level of LG BD series was about 50 $ more.. but with the extra feature of extended network connectivity. Didn't find a need to be networked yet.. hence went for this player... Hooked up to my LG LCD TV... and sweet... the TV recognizes this as a Disc player and can use the same remote to control both devices.. very convenient.
Excerpt: Received this as a gift, and I'm sooo happy to have gotten it! I would have even gone out and bought it myself. I think it all depends on what your needs are. I personally don't use netflix, or much of the internet apps, so this blu-ray player is perfect for me! If you do, then you should look at the higher end models in this series.
I tried to resist its charms...LG is a great brand!

Excerpt: So for my husband 40th birthday I was recking my brain trying to think of something to get him that he would enjoy. After days of causing myself headaches it dawned on me that we don't have a Blu Ray Player. Which is odd since my husband is a HUGE movie buff and writes screen plays. Recently we had purchase an iPad and he's been slowly but surely purchasing Blu Ray DVDs for the digital copies. So finally a gift idea was born!
Excerpt: I needed an affordable Blu-ray player for my parents place, and this definitely gets the job done. Picked it up from Walmart when it was $64, and it hasn't disappointed too much thus far. Setup: Pretty simple plug and play setup. It only comes with basic composite cables, but you can find plenty of cheap component or hdmi cables online. Once you start it up, there are a few options to choose from for desired sound and picture resolution, and you're good to go.
Excerpt: We received this LG bluray player for Christmas and it is a great bluray player. It was packed very well so that it wasn't jostled in the box. It came with a remote and batteries and also the different cords to hook it up with. I was disappointed that it didn't come with an HDMi cord, but my sister had one so we just took hers. It is set up so stream Netflix instantly but we do not subscribe to Netflix so that doesn't matter to me. I also received a few bluray...
Excerpt: I got this blu ray player on sale at Walmart during the holidays. I've never had a blu ray player before considering they were always expensive and being new technology I didn't want to jump in too quick. I'm glad I waited. I picked this blu ray player up at a very cheap price and set it up right away. I have surround sound so i set this up to my receiver and it was working in no time. Of course, since I never had a blu ray player before this I didn't own any BDs.
Excerpt: This network enabled Bluray player is a nice basic bluray player. It does not have wi-fi or Netflix streaming, but it is good for playing all kinds of digital media. First of all, it is very easy to set up the player. You will need to buy HDMI cables if you wish to get its full 1080p quality picture, because it does not include any. The built quality is good. Player is light. It plays all kinds of disks (VCD, DVD, Bluray, etc.). It can play media files on data DVDs.
