Not so great

Mike Jones, Amazon
13 May 2014
  • Summary: Wifi is an external USB drive. Not worth it. Get one with built in wifi. Just cheap and not very good.

In less than one year it only plays blu rays and won't play dvd's...lg wants $70 to repair...definitely not worth it.

Leonard M. Tow, Amazon
27 November 2012
  • Summary: Unhappy with the item...after such a short time and not really used that much it won't play dvd's anymore. LG wants $70 to fix for an item that cost $100...forget about it...

Wi-Fi dongle is unacceptable

Miles Munson, Amazon
2 February 2012
  • Summary: In general I like LG products. There is only one USB port on the box which is located on the front. The WI-FI dongle plugs into the USB port. Makes the unit look stupid with a 3 inch black dongle protruding from the front.

Brazilian Model

no, Amazon
29 December 2011
  • Summary: I actually ordered another of this model of the LG Blu Ray disk player and had the same result. The model shipped was made for Brazil. I know this because when it came its default language was spanish, and it had none of the Netcast features.

Wireless did not work properly, sent unit back.

Glenn C. Johnson, Amazon
5 December 2011
  • Summary: I would categorize myself as being an up to date techwize person, and after spending 1/2 a day trying to get this unit to work wireless, I sent it back. It must have been defective, because I have DirecTV, and a WII unit, both downloading movies with no problem, and no router program changes.

Hidden flaws

K. Harvel, Amazon
29 June 2011
  • Summary: This LG player seems to be a good value at first, but there are several features that detract from the overall rating. Pros: --easy to setup --price is reasonable (you get what you pay for) Cons: --menu navigation is jumpy, often times I would select an option and the menu would jump back to the...

Pitifully slow streaming video

James, Amazon
25 June 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this Blu-ray player to bring wireless streaming video to my HDTV, but it doesn't even come close to fulfilling this role in a satisfactory manner. Compared to both my PS3 and Apple TV, both of which are connected via wireless, the LG BD640 takes an order of magnitude longer to connect to...

Horrible Decision

Jennifer M., Amazon
14 February 2011
  • Summary: I bought this as my first blue-ray player because of the low price and variety of options. My player worked just fine when playing discs and using the internet-connected applications. My problem came when streaming Netflix. Because this is one of the requirements I had, I was severely disappointed.

Would not recommend

K. Jacob "ooppootil", Amazon
13 February 2011
  • Summary: This is an obsolete product. LG support informed me that this is an outdated product and Amazon was given this to close it out. It does not play newest released and it does not support WIFI. I bought 2 and have asked for return authorization for both.

Very Disappointed

Steve 363, Amazon
18 January 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this LG Blu-ray player based off of my experiences with their kitchen appliances and LCD TV that we own. That was a mistake. I should have taken more of the negative reviews that I read to heart but I didn't want to believe them.
