Summary: worst piece of you know what. Was over the time limit to return so Sent it back to be fixed which took for_ever. Hey and guess what.... its not working again. Keep getting disk error. I hate this player!!!!!!
Summary: I own the LG BD690 and my friend owns the LG BD650. Both players were used only 2-3 times a month for playing discs, and recently displayed this issue. Upon loading a disc, the units started to make a grinding sound, the TV would display a "disc error" and upon opening the tray, the disc would still be spinning. My friend went online and discovered that many LG users were experiencing this same problem. Well, he is very tech savvy.
Summary: All the features are working well as mentioned except playing the normal VCD. I have tried many VCDs and the effect is the same. For other formats, it is OK. I have upgraded the firmware and the issue still persists.
Get this, if you are looking for a 3D Blu-Ray player that has the Amazon Instant Video app

Summary: For $100, this one is well worth the $$. Beware that you will either need an Ethernet port near by to plug into, otherwise use a wireless gaming adapter or LG's USB wireless adapter to connect it to the internet. This one does NOT have built-in wireless.
Summary: Sometimes your mind fills in the blanks when looking for something. LG players are excellent and offer the best bang for buck IMHO. I bought an earlier model that had wireless, and although there was a firmware update the one thing it lacked was search capabilities within Net-flex, so I went over to Net-flex and found there LG approved models with listed Net-Flex options. I picked the BD650 3D, so could be future proof, just in case I went the 3D route.
Summary: I bought this player so I could access the Amazon prime videos app. in the bedroom TV. I really enjoy the convenience of watching whatever I want to whenever I want to. The player fits nicely and snuggles right between the TV stand and TV, very convenient and space saving. Player work very well, didn't have any problems setting up seems very user friendly. Arrived in very good shape, would not have any problem ordering from Adorama Camera through Amazon.com again.
