It works... But that's all

Nathan Bontrager, Amazon
1 April 2013
  • 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.

The software updates vary a lot in quality

Hilmar, Amazon
22 December 2011
  • Summary: Most specs of this thing are known I guess, I won't go into that. We bought this player to have a region 1 bluray and dvd player, after moving from Europe. We've had it since November 2010, more than a year now. At first, the UI was really sluggish, but then the first software update came.

  • Summary: We purchased this Blu-ray player and had it for approx. 60 days before deciding to send it back due to it's on going issues with Netflix streaming.

Terrible design if you are planning to use wireless

D. Bolar, Amazon
11 July 2011
  • Summary: There is only one USB port on the unit to plug in the wireless adapter and it is on the FRONT of the unit. This causes the adapter to stick out 2-3 inches from the face of the unit and obstructs access to the power button.

Recieved a Lemon

R. Borden, Amazon
18 February 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this in November (2010) as a Christmas gift for the whole family. Everyone was very excited, especially with the internet features allowing for Netflix, Pandora and more. After a month of "normal" use the device began to act funny.

Netflix Streaming Problems

31 December 2010
  • Summary: I cannot recommend this item for purchase. The LG BD550 has a flaw in the unit where it has difficulty streaming video. If you are looking to subscribe to Netflix, VUDU, etc. look for another unit.

This model is defective too often

J. L. Glass, Amazon
18 December 2010
  • Summary: I have read reviews on here and on the Best Buy website about this LG model to confirm my own experience with it: it is a seriously defective piece of machinery. After a few days of working fine, I encountered exactly the same problems noted in many other reviews....

PHANTOM POWER PROBLEM

New Screen, Amazon
28 November 2010
  • Summary: The BD550 (bought for Netflix instant and didn't get the wireless because I had a bridge and streaming better on ethernet) is a great bargain and easy to set up. However, I have had a weird problem with Netflix.

not too happy with BD550

Grizzrob "Grizzrob", Amazon
28 July 2010
  • Summary: I'm an LG fan - have two LG TV's and a BD370 that I am real pleased with. Got the BD550 to work on TV 1 and move the older BD370 to TV2. Unit ships with 1080i as the default resolution, and when it is changed to 1080p the display pops, flashes and eventually the unit powers off.

User Review

Walmart
20 July 2010
  • Summary: I liked this player aside from the freeze up problems I experienced when navigating through the menu's, playing a blu-ray movie (2012), and the initial software download/update. I had the same experience on 2 of these players cause I figured I'd return the first and try another.
