Summary: I have had 2 of these and both have had problems with the Netflix streaming. About every 4th item I try to watch will freeze the unit and will then shut it down for no reason. I replaced the first one and have the second one into the manufacturer now to see if they can fix this. I would only recommend if LG fixes this blatant problem.
Pros: Backwards Compatible, DVD Upconversion, Easy Set-Up, Excellent Image Quality
Pros: Good picture quality, good upconverting of DVDs, like the features such as Homelink, wifi works great.
Cons: Several discs, like Terminator Salvation skip constantly, A Haunting in Connecticut skips to the 13 minute mark, The Rock will not play at all and freezes the player. And now they won't be adding NEFLIX to the Canadian model like their competition.
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
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.
