Summary: I have had this Blu-ray player for a few months and I have to say that I'm rather disappointed with this unit. Which is kinder than what my wife has to say about it. She hates the bloody thing. Lately, the LG player has begun to random freeze up or go into an endless reboot cycle. And when you've got 1 yr old who wants to watch Elmo right now, it really sucks to have to troubleshoot. The one time I fed a Blu-Ray movie into it, it played it well enough.
Summary: I've had this product for a year now and it's still going strong. I'm not sure why lately so many faulty versions of it seem to be floating around, but I've never had trouble with this Blu-ray player. I bought it only because of the Netflix streaming, which works great on it. If your internet is slow then it won't download as quickly and can pause in the middle of the show as it waits to load.
Summary: So the thing is I have Netflix on my PS3 in Costa Rica and my dad loves to watch movies. So I decided to buy a Bluray for him that allows him to watch Netflix and I chose the LG BD630 among other options because it said Netflix and thats that, that was the only reason to pick a simple bluray that connects to internet among other options. The thing is that I received the box and everything was perfect until I tried to connect Netflix..
Summary: We've been using it for almost a year and it has worked great. Great features and quality at a steal of a price. One feature that I like is that you can hook a USB hard drive to it and play VOB video files. Really convenient for your movie backups. This may be changed in more recent firmware updates though. It also upscales DVDs and other video formats very nicely.
Summary: I purchased this blu-ray player in November 2011 on sale for $65. After doing much research, this player's features and internet enabled apps were very comparable to other high-end players (netflix, hulu, etc). The only thing this player lacked was wireless connectivity, to get this you would need to upgrade to the BD640. After watching many Blu-rays and DVD's, I have had no issues playing Blu-ray's. The only trouble I had is playing some older DVD's.
Summary: I have my TV routed through a receiver and speakers. The sound quality of ths unit surpasses other players. I hear highs and lows that weren't as apparent before. Video is as good as any, crisp and clear. The network connection was a terrific addition. I hardwired mine. Did not try wireless. Connections were easy, just ethernet cable in back of machine and into one of the router ports. After wired, the unit automatically found IP address and connection information.
Summary: We bought this Blu-ray because it's a reputable brand that had an extremely low Cyber Monday price. We hooked it up at the beginning of December, and for 2-3 weeks, it worked well (so far we've only played DVDs, not Blu-ray discs). Then we were gone for 2 weeks for the holidays, and when we returned, the player ran some updates. Ever since then, we can't watch 15 minutes of a DVD without problems. The screen goes black and it flashes a few times, while the volume skips.
