Summary: Wanted a budget, simply and easy to use Blu-ray player for my parents and this fits the bill perfectly. DVDs play fine too. The remote control buttons could be a bit bigger but it is clearly laid out.
Summary: After purchasing a LG television set for the first time and being completely bowled over with it, I decided it was now time to upgrade to Blu-ray as well. I primarily bought the player to play DVD's and at the time of review I don't actually own any Blu-ray discs. With normal DVD players becoming increasingly harder to find I opted for the Blu-ray to effectively have the best of both worlds. Anyway, on to the actual player itself.
Summary: The LG Blu ray player suited my requirements as it has analogue audio out thus saving the extra expense of a digital (S/PDIF) to analogue converter if your audio amp lacks a digital input.Having lo fi ears means I wouldn't be able to tell the difference anyway.
Summary: Really good value. Does what I would expect, even more in some cases. Easy to setup in my parents' home. With some simple instruction my father has no trouble in playing CDs or DVDs, he does not have any Blu-ray discs. I was surprised to see a USB port on a unit in this price range but it shows stills, plays MP3 files and a number of video formats from a usb device. This can be a flash memory device or an external disc as long as no special driver is required.
Summary: Small compact design.Responsive remote that can control your LG tv as well as the player. Plays video files from USB as well as the Blu ray /DVD's. Much quieter than my original player 2 years ago.Very good picture & sound.
Summary: A really good BluRay player for the price. The reproduction of BluRay discs on a 1080 TV is excellent, and sound is amazing through a high-end audio system. The inclusion of a USB input is good for playback of audio and pictures, as well as video. The only (minor) downside is there is no separate Digital sound output, so DTS or Dolby CD's can't be fully exploited, although the analogue output gives a very acceptable result.
