"UNUSABLE,SINCE UPGRADE NO INTERNET CONNECTION POSSIBLE"
8 April 2011
Pros: GOOD USE FOR BLUERAY DISKS
Cons: THE LATEST FIRMWARE UPGRADE HAS MADE THE UNIT UNABLE TO CONNECT WIRELESS TO THE INTERNET. i AM NOW UNABLE TO VIEW MLB ,NETFLEX OR ANY OF THE SITES i EXPECTED TO BE AVAILABLE WITH THIS UNIT. IT HAS BEES OVER A WEEK SINCE I DISCOVERED THIS AND THE ONLY INF
Cons: LG keeps trying to fix the problems people are having by releasing new firmware updates. Each one solves one problem then creates another. The main problem is skipping with certiain Blu Ray titles, like Terminator: Salvation and Toy Story 3, and UP. Th
Summary: This BluRay gives great picture, works with Vudu and Netflix reasonably well, but does not work with MLB.TV as advertised. As a leading feature of this product was MLB.TV integration, I expected to be able to watch MLB games on this player but it does not work at all. Therefore, I cannot recommend this player.
Pros: Good picture, easy to navigate, large movie icons.
Cons: In less than 90 days from the purchase of this item the sound becacme garbled. I sent it bad to LG. After a month with NO commincation from LG, I got the set back with a notation that no problem was found. The problem is still in the unit.
Summary: Almost every Blu-ray disk that we have tried to play in this player skips, including "Toy Story 3", "Inception", and "Despicable Me". Most often, the movie plays fine for the first 75% of the movie, then it will suddenly start skipping. It seems to skip to the next "chapter". It might do this several times for the remainder of the movie. And yes, I have installed the most current firmware. When it works, the picture quality is excellent.
