Summary: I use this LG bluray player in a small cabin near our home. It is connected to an LG 26LV2500 TV via HDMI and it is also wired to a network using cat5 cable 340 feet away from the router! Firmware update and Netflix handshake went flawlessly.
Summary: Slim device with usable remote. Happy with the purchase.
Pros: * Can use your Netflix, YouTube, etc. accounts. The Netflix account isn't crippled, like on some DVRs, but lets you search for titles, see categories, etc. * Has a USB port for a flash drive or external HD, to view photos, etc.
Cons: * Not wireless and no way to upgrade to use wifi. (Tried using a USB-wifi AP, and player displays message "ERROR" and auto-shuts off.)
Summary: If you have an LG TV the sync function is incredibly annoying and can't be turned off. You can't put a DVD in and let it run while you watch TV. It immediately switches to the player when the tray is opened or if the unit is turned on.
Summary: UPDATE: I can't describe how frustrated I am after using this player for 6 months. I use it specifically for Netflix and it is just plain SLOW (even for a hardwired network connection). It's slow to load Netflix.
Summary: Great deal. Set up is way to easy. Plug the HDMI cable in, plug the ethernet cable in and plug the power in. Turn on the Blue-ray and you are ready to go. The menu is user friendly. Movies look great. Regular and blue-ray movies. The interface working with Netflix is top notch.
Summary: This player was super easy to set up - out of the box, installed, firmware updated and working in about 25 minutes. I don't currently have a HD TV, just ED, but the picture is better than my former DVD. Can't wait to upgrade my TV!
