Worst piece of electronic equipment I ever bought.
AMS, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews
8 March 2013
Summary: This blu-ray player is awful. The only reason I gave it a 2-star overall rating is because it DOES actually play the DVD's we put in it. My main problem is that it is slow in everything that it does and half the time, it doesn't read that there is a disc in there.
Summary: I really like the SimpLink functionality that automatically switches the input on my TV to the Blu-Ray input when the BR unit is turned on. Only downside is that it takes some discs a while to load up. Not sure if this inherent to Blu-Ray or just this unit. Also, I've disabled network access because I don't care for BDlive functionality, and I really wouldn't miss the BDLive nag screen that pops on EVERY BR disc that tries to connect to the internet.
I hate this product, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews
25 August 2012
Summary: I couldn't possibly hate this product more if it called me names every time I turned it on. The only redeeming feature of this blueray player is that it's light-weight. >.) The remote feels cheap. >.) The player doesn't register input from the remote unless the remote is pointed [directly] at it. >.) The virtual keyboard is cumbersome to navigate, and very slow and erratic in responding. >.
Summary: The player was easy to connect the television and looks great playing blu ray disks. I have had the player six months have not been able to sucessfully connect to my wireless network for longer than five to ten minutes and when I do connect it does not access netflix or vudu. Only utube and then plays very few of those videos without timing out. As another reviewed said the wireless dongle sticks out of the front and is easily knocked out.
Summary: I did the last update and wireless is no long an option in the menu I think they need more quality control. Locks up on apps like pandora but has been good with netflix other than this it has been a good blu-ray
