Summary: It works okay, but the apps are very lackluster. The netflix app in particular is very slow making it difficult to navigate. One of the things that make it slow as well is the responsiveness of the remote. Try searching a title by typing it in? It takes forever. Plays bluray and DVD good, but because of the apps I would not purchase again...
Summary: I have had this BD640 LG Bluray player for about a year. It just recently in the last month or so stopped playing standard DVDs. It still plays Blurays but no longer will play any regular DVD whatsoever! I looked online and apparently a lot of other people have been having this same problem. I would recommend getting a different brand. Don't risk it. Besides that everything worked great, internet worked well.
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.
Summary: The player worked fine for the first year and a half. I kept the firmware updated via a wired network connection, so everything was current. During the last three to six months (I can't remember exactly) the player stopped playing DVDs (Blu-rays still played). It would give an error message and the tray would open. About a month ago it stopped playing Blu-rays as well.
Summary: I was able to get the product at a reasonable price and it was listed as in very good condition. When it arrived it had no documentation or remote control. I had to go online and D/L the documentation and also had to find a website that offered the remote control for sale. I was able to get a remote control in about a week. It was never mentioned a remote would not come with the unit. The unit did have a scratch on top but it is not very noticable.
Summary: I bought one cheap at Wally World. It works fine but the menu for accessing internet TV is poorly planned and works slow. The DVD player works fine, the sound and video are fine from both the DVD and the internet. It would be nice to have a second USB port but I probably won't be using it very often for anything besides the wireless adapter they provided.
Summary: Not impressed with product. Sometime player freezes and unable to turn-off. Only option was to unplug power cord. Tried to play Transformer 2 DVD and other new DVDs but would not play and would freeze and hadto unplug power cord to reset. These DVDs were either new from store or Redbox. They play nicely on my cheap Coby DVD player.
Summary: I mean, its not bad for the price but i was disappointed that i couldn't get hulu on it. You can only get netflix, vudu, youtube and some other pay per movie thing. It keeps freezing up when I watch Netflix and I have to unplug it and restart it. Not sure if its the bluray player or netflix but its a pain. It does play Blurays pretty good though. Also I had trouble setting it up on my TV because the resolution was wrong and it was a pain to get right.
