Excerpt: I just purchased this LG-BD550 Blu Ray player a week ago for under $100 and it is great! I have it hooked to my 32" LG HD tv and the sound and picture quality is outstanding. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great player and a great price.
Excerpt: I purchased this Blu Ray on Black Friday after striking out with a too good to ne true Magnavox for sixty nine dollars. That was a flop and I returned it immediately but was sooo excited about the thought of having a Bu Ray that I picked this one out and haven't regretted it since! I was almost ready to cancel my Netflix membership since I am not a fan of watching on my laptop and waiting for dvd's to be available through the mail was somewhat of a pain.
Excerpt: I received the LG Blu-Ray Player BD550 for my birthday. I was very excited, because I had started buying a year ago my daughters Disney movies as Blu-Ray and DVD copies. I thought eventually we would get one and I was just getting prepared. We have watched a couple of Blu-Ray and I have to say it is so clear. The colors are definately brighter along with the clearer images. I also like that that Blu-Rays do not scratch like a DVD which is our main problem in our...
Excerpt: I am very glad that the cost of bluray players have decreased in the past few years. After seeing an after Thanksgiving ad indicating that this model player would be on sale, I jumped at purchasing one. I was looking to purchase a portable dvd player at the time, and saw that the cost of this bluray player was the same as a portable dvd player.
Excerpt: I had put off getting a Blu-ray player in hopes of getting a HDTV first, but after seeing the LG BD550 on sale, decided to get the LG. Excellent choice. Outstanding picture even on ordinary TV. Well worth the money! Also, with the Pandora, and other programs, and excellent product. Loads quickly and easy to install and program. Will definitely purchase other LG products including HDTV!
Excerpt: We got a HDTV last summer but never stepped into the Blu-Ray arena. I was so impressed with the high definition picture quality from a Blu-Ray disc that I saw from a local electronic store. I wanted one but the price was still too high at the time. Last Thanksgiving and Christmas timeframe, it seems like every store were dumping the Blu-Ray player with some very good sales. We bought a Sony, a Magnavox and this LG BD550.
Excerpt: I was looking for a decent Blu-Ray player that didn't cost a lot of money and settled on the LG BD550 player. Overall this machine does have most everything though it does not have wireless built in, nor does it have 3d support. It does allow you to get Netflix, Pandora, YouTube, and Picasso streamed directly from the internet with a wired connection. You can also get an optional wireless adapter to connect without running cables to it.
Excerpt: I must say that this is a pretty good player for the price (under $100). The lack of Wifi may be a deal breaker for alot of people, but my router is placed right near my home entertainment center. Plus I do not like to stream netflix over Wifi. As far as I can tell, this is the same as the lg bd530, but this includes netflix. The only problem I had was updating the firmware, as it did not work the first time. The second time was a charm.
