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: The drive works fine...a bit slow, but the huge disappointment is the missing MediaLink SmartTV package that supports PLEX. Our LG TV with SmartTV has MediaLink, but this player, although "equipped" with SmartTV has no MediaLink support.
Summary: Unfortunately, I bought two of these. The good news: 1) Of the two I bought, one is still working. 2) One is on it's way to LG for repair under warranty (and within 90 days so they will not charge me $70 for labor). The bad news: 1) I bought these to play movies from my media server and Netflix. While this feature DOES work, the sound doesn't synch with the video while playing mp4's. When played on any other player device, the mp4 file sound synchs perfectly.
Summary: I was really excited to get this player because of its reported amazing DLNA feature. This proved to be mostly talk. The player could play simple avi's and some mkv files moderately well. But seemed to hiccup on playback fairly often. If you are going to use this player 95% at a blu-ray player, then it will be fine for you. Otherwise, go for a cheaper player and get a WD Live, or similar.
Summary: First off, this does what it's primary purpose is just fine...play Blu Ray and DVD movies. However; I purchased this particular player for the Smart TV. The Smart TV menus look nothing like they do on the LG website. In order to get to MLB or Netflix I have to wade through a bunch of other 'Premium' apps that I have no use for.
Summary: dopo aver cercato per mari e per monti il lettore adatto a me ho individuato il bd650, poi trovarlo in negozio è stato tutto un'altro paio di maniche, perfortuna che la mia dolce metà è riuscita a trovarlo e me le ha regalato per il compleanno Grazie amore !!! devo dire che mi avevano parlato molto bene di questo prodotto, ma in realtà per me è stata un po una delusione... LG il bd650 non supporta il 3D.
Summary: Hallo, ich habe lange überlegt welchen Blu-Ray Player ich mir kaufen soll. Folgende Aspekte sollte der Player erfüllen: - BD-/DVD abspielen - Hauptsächlich MKV und AVI-Dateien abspielen. - nicht allzu laut sein, da Zweitplayer für das Schlafzimmer - NTFS Formatierte Datenträger akzeptieren - Günstig sollte er sein, da wie gesagt nur Zweitplayer (Maximal 100 Euro.) Nun hatte ich den Sony BDP-S185 (schwarz) und den LG BD650 in der engeren Wahl.
