Summary: This one was purchased to replace another player that stopped working. It HAD to have Netflix and VuDu, but anything else just added to the value. The player hookup was so simple - just three wires, incuding the Cat-5. Once it was powered up, I just had to set the language. It found the network and was ready to go. This unit has DLNA, which was something I wanted, but had not listed as a requirement.
Summary: Purchased this product as a result of a old dvd player wearing out. It is very user friendly and makes streaming very convienent! We dont have cable TV so we are watching movies and streaming more than the typicall person! Would recommend this product to anyone!!!
Excerpt: I purchased this Blu Ray on Black Friday after striking out with a too good to ne true Magnavox for sixty nine dollars. That was a flop and I returned it immediately but was sooo excited about the thought of having a Bu Ray that I picked this one out and haven't regretted it since! I was almost ready to cancel my Netflix membership since I am not a fan of watching on my laptop and waiting for dvd's to be available through the mail was somewhat of a pain.
Excerpt: I received the LG Blu-Ray Player BD550 for my birthday. I was very excited, because I had started buying a year ago my daughters Disney movies as Blu-Ray and DVD copies. I thought eventually we would get one and I was just getting prepared. We have watched a couple of Blu-Ray and I have to say it is so clear. The colors are definately brighter along with the clearer images.
Excerpt: I had put off getting a Blu-ray player in hopes of getting a HDTV first, but after seeing the LG BD550 on sale, decided to get the LG. Excellent choice. Outstanding picture even on ordinary TV. Well worth the money! Also, with the Pandora, and other programs, and excellent product. Loads quickly and easy to install and program. Will definitely purchase other LG products including HDTV!
Excerpt: I just purchased this LG-BD550 Blu Ray player a week ago for under $100 and it is great! I have it hooked to my 32" LG HD tv and the sound and picture quality is outstanding. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great player and a great price.
Excerpt: This Blu-Ray Player gets the job done. The interface is great! Unlike other player, this player makes very little noise and loads quickly. The Net apps work better than expected and the Netflix is especially easy to navigate. The setup was easy to my HDTV with an HDMI cable, that was not included. I recommend buying at least a 6 foot HDMI cable. The internet Apps are accessed by hooking up a ethernet cable to the Blu-Ray player. The Blu-Ray palyer is not wireless.
Summary: I should preface my review with the fact that much of my pleasure with this product is the low price. I was able to find one used here on Amazon for $20.00. It actually looked brand new and included the remote, the wireless dongle, & the manuals! I primarily wanted it for the Netflix application. I have a Roku box in my living room that I love.
