Summary: It works. Has some nice features. Is responsive. And seller is prompt. Very prompt. Not much more you could say. The only real issue I have isn't really even an issue for most people. I like having subtitles. And obviously on discs and such subtitles work just fine. But on the internet services like Netflix subtitle support is not available for this player nor do they plan on adding it. So if you want subtitles on the internet features, avoid this product.
Summary: Had this for several months now and it works great. Connected to my wireless network with ease. Got Netflix working in 15min. DVDs look great, haven't tried many Blu-rays yet. Looking for a wireless enabled Blu-ray for a good priced this is it. Make sure the USB wireless dongle is included in your item.
Summary: I've owned the LG BD640 for 2 weeks now and am pleased with it. Internet setup was simple, just follow the instructions. Everything works well. It plays all DVD's and plays AVI MPEG and MKV files thru the USB port. I suggest that you power down before you switch between a USB memory stick and the wireless dongle as it seems to help the processor recognize the change faster. Remember to set the resolution then screen type in the settings menu.
Summary: I had been on the lookout for an LG Blu-ray player to go with my LG television (not purchased on Amazon). When this player went on sale, it was an easy decision to pick it up. While it did not have built-in wireless (which was important for streaming Netflix), I figured the provided wireless USB plug would be good enough. I was right...for the most part. The Pros: - It was very easy to setup. It took all of 5 minutes and reading through the instructions.
Summary: It's a nice base model by LG. Word 'network' is misleading as it cannot play media saved on a network. It can connect to the network to access internet, and stream internet content such as Netflix, Youtube, etc. It is not DLNA certified (couldn't believe for a product as latest as this one). Only one USB port, which will be occupied if you want to connect it wirelessly (with supplied USB dongle). Setup is much easier and straight-forward than a Sony BD player.
Summary: This is my first experience with a blu-ray player. It was purchased for my mother. The most striking thing about it was how thin it is. But it seems they are all about this size now. The disc tray is also very thin, and seems fragile. I purchased this hoping for a budget blu-ray player with good performance, and that is exactly what it is. One of the features that prompted the purchase was being able to watch streaming movies.
Superb CD player, but beware - firmware updates are S L O W

Summary: So really not too much to say about the player - it's great - upscales SD DVDs very nicely. Menus are pretty intuitive and response and boot times are acceptable. The extra stuff like Netflix and Pandora make this a really versatile addition to your media shelf. The one gotcha is the firmware upgrade - it is *extremely* slow.
Summary: I had this player for about 20 days and watched mostly DVDs. The picture quality is great and I could set it up pretty fast without the manual. However it stopped playing the DVDs all of a sudden. I tried multiple DVDs which we previously watched on this player, they all stopped working too. Tried resetting the POWER/cord but still wouldn't work. However it still plays my old audio CDs. The LG customer support couldn't help me fix it.
Summary: The LG BD 550 is a solid player, especially for the price, but there's a major design flaw when installing it and setting it up. A lot of Blu-Rays are encoded with DTS-HD Master Audio, but by default, the player outputs audio at a different setting - PCM 2 channel. In order to get the DTS-HD Master Audio, you have to change the setting to Primary Pass-Through.
