Summary: I have had this player for over a year, perhaps two. I no longer am sure when or for how much I bough it. It has been a very reliable electronic appliance for my family. We use it mainly for the "Home-Link" feature -- LG's name for LAN-based digital media sharing. I run a Windows Server 2008 R2 domain at home, and have a dedicated RAID with redundancy for my video library.
Pros: Connects to Windows SMD/CIFS Shares, WIFI, Attractive Design, Simpilink works with current LG TV, Plays majority of Digital File formats: MP4, MKV...
Cons: Netflix App has no search function, Some titles in Netflix app are slow to resolve to HD, and may need up to 5 minutes to eliminate jerky motion.
Summary: My first ever Blue-Ray player and have had nothing but praise for this equipment. Wi-Fi built -in is just great. The apps are a plus. Sometimes it is hard to choose between, VUDU on the player or the TV, have to toss a coin! LOL!!. Great all the same. Best investment I have made in a very long time.
Summary: I've had this Blu-ray player for about 10 months now, and in that time I had to update the software3 or 4 times, and am waiting for another update so I can watch a standard DVD copy of Transformers. At this time when I put this disk in the player (it's only this movie, every copy of it I tried acts the same), the player turns itself off. I'm not sure what the other updates have done for me, but until this one I would have said the player operated flawlessly.
informedboomer, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews
24 October 2011
Summary: We got this as part of our new video suite exactly one year ago. Great price on a full-featured DVD player, and reviews were good. We’ve been very happy with it, and our satisfaction was one factor in deciding to buy another LG product (which has been very disappointing). This unit has performed exactly as we had hoped, the picture and features are great, and we’re very satisfied with it.
Summary: At some point, one of the DVD's got stuck in the player and would not come out. I had to take the player apart to remove the disc and found a sticky substance on the top of the disk. Don't know how it got there. I had to clean the disk and the part that suctions to the top of the disk. It did it twice more to clean DVDs and now seems to be better after I've cleaned the player and DVD's. Frustrating but not sure I can blame it on the player.
Summary: Great player for the money, and pretty dag-gone good picture quality on my big LCD TV. I don't watch too many discs, but lean heavily on the DNLA feature, and watch tons of MKV movies. The interface and menus are a tad clunky, but it just takes a little getting used to. I've fiddled with units three times more expensive that don't produce any better quality picture, and my only gripe is that it doesn't play FLAC files.
