You cannot get Amazon movies on it

  • Summary: I wish I had known that you can get free movies if you're a Prime Member. The BD570 does not show Amazon Movies.

Must read review about all features not including blu-ray player

  • Summary: Pros: - Netflix, youtube, hulu and other online apps - plays media such as mkv,mp4. - USB drive support - Reads media from cd/dvd/network/usb drive very quickly - Nice remote for browsing and even contains a search option - Picks up windows based shares on home network. Cons: - Customer services is absolutely atrocious (scroll down for story at end of cons) - States it supports AVI and DIVX/XVID codec but does not chokes up on most.

Easy to Use, but Discs Freeze and Fails to Power-On

Icculus, Amazon
7 September 2010
  • Summary: The first dvd (concert dvd) i used in this player froze half-way through. I had to skip to the next chapter for it to begin playing again. This disc is not damaged because it works in my older dvd player. Also, after 3 days of sitting idle after i first set it up, the unit failed to power up / turn on. I had to unplug the power AND hdmi then plug it back in for the unit to power up / turn on. It took about 5 attempts before i had power again.

garbled sound

bassist, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews

  • Summary: Image quality is superb, but this unit is plagued by sporadic poor sound quality which renders speech unintelligible. It is not caused by defective discs, rather it is a defect within the LG product itself. The only working remedy is basically to shut everything off and do a re-boot of the whole system. Unless LG resolves this matter to my satisfaction, I would recommend to any of my friends that they NOT buy this product.
  • Pros: Style/Design
  • Cons: Difficult to use, poor sound quality, user unfriendly manual

User Review

  • Summary: I bought a BD570 to use with my LG 60PK750 plasma monitor. My connections were with HDMI cables. The unit produced a nasty static sound after a hour or so of play, only unplugging and re-plugging in the HDMI cable fixed the audio. A second unit had the same problem. Avoid LG Bluray players until this problem is addressed. Also, while netflix worked fine, the other web services would crash and cause the unit to need a hard reset.
  • Pros: Features/Settings

Blu-ray player with Blu-ray hiccups

Michael Rodriguez, Amazon
27 February 2010
  • Summary: First, this was my first blu-ray player. I did my research and most users really enjoyed the LG products over the less costly Samsung models. The model I was originally going to purchase was the LG BD570's predecessor. In the end I went with this LG model expecting one of the best products at this price value. I was unfortunately let down. Here was my issue: I purchased this player and the new Terminator Salvation DVD to test it out.
