Hooray for some features - BOO for others

Hillbilly Homeboy, Amazon
10 January 2012
  • Summary: First, the good - unit works great. Can watch Netflix and other on-demand movies. Makes my DVDs look good even on an older JVC TV. I have no complaints there.

  • Summary: Everyone else has done a good job of explaining how nice this blue ray player is. The menus are easy and setup was quick... Just one complaint from me: The wireless USB dongle they included with is has to be plugged into the FRONT of the player.

Wireless network connection

  • Summary: The unit works as I expected with one little surprise. The description says the wireless dongle is included, which it is, however it's about 3 inches long and the only USB port on the machine is in the front. I'm sure that sooner or later this thing is going to get broken or misplaced.

OK player, but just barely

  • Summary: My observations, opinions, and preferences make this a mediocre product at best. Others' observations, opinions, and preferences may make this perfectly suitable for them. That said... This is my second BD-640. The first one arrived defective. The tray wouldn't open.

Horrible Customer Service

  • Summary: Two months ago by BD550 notified me that I should download a firmware update. Fair enough. I have now tried to download it a dozen times over the last two months, and it will not work. Customer service says, "The servers have been overloaded with downloads, try later.

  • Summary: I have an LG BD370 DVD player and I thought I would upgrade to the latest greatest model. Well after hooking it up and watching a movie, I don't see much difference. In fact, I like the older model much better.

  • Summary: great blue ray player. I should have gotten the 570 with wi-fi. That would allow me to take advantage of all the devices features. Currently my router is too far away to be wired to my blue ray player.

great picture, not for netflix

Walmart
20 June 2010
  • Summary: I bought the LG BD550 for its Netflix feature. Due to a 'known problem' between LG and Netflix, I wasn't able to use that feature. Other than that, it had a very good picture quality. I waited a week after contacting LG and Netflix and decided to return the blu-ray player and get a different one.
