19 November 2010
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.
Summary: I purchased the LG BD570 about a year ago, and was happy with the unit for most of the time it continued functioning. It had a good user interface and was easy to set up. But the wireless internet has quit working, which means it can no longer be used for the primary reason that we purchased it -- which was to view Netflix video.
Summary: The price for this 5th-generation (according to hard-core users on a popular home theater forum) Blu-Ray player was fantastic on Amazon ($162) but that may be because LG is having to get rid of truckloads of these lemons. Ours was a lemon, for sure. Two key buttons on the remote didn't work at all, and the device, on day 3, failed to recognize or play the Blu-Ray disk it had played without incident on days 1 and 2 (Mad Men, Season 3, disk 1, in case you're interested).
Easy to Use, but Discs Freeze and Fails to Power-On
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.
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.
Summary: Hallo Welt, ich nutze den Player hauptsächlich um per DLNA Filme von meiner NAS zu streamen. Das klappt ganz gut. Auch mehrere Tonspuren kann er verwalten. MKVs gehen ebenfalls. Leider keine VOB und WMV. Aber sonst fast wie der WD HD Media Player. ALs DVD Player ist er leider eine katastrophe. Bei der DVD Friends und My name ist Earl schaltet sich der Player ohne Vorankündigung einfach aus.
