Summary: Had to call the company at least once a week for tech support. The CSR was always very polite. We would do soft resets, hard resets and reboots. All of which would work for a few days. Then we would repeat the process all over again. I was told to return the product for repair/replacement.
Summary: I bought this player, despite the myriad warnings of others about the imminent failure, characterised by the whining of the disk drive and its failure to play discs. Well, it happened to me after less than 3 months... with VERY little use!
LG BD670 - The last LG product I will buy for the rest of my life
28 October 2012
Summary: I bought the LG BD670 about 10 months ago and have had problems with it off and on since I bought it. It played Blu-ray great when it worked. The wireless network connection continously has to be reset. This was resolved temporarily, but seems to be broken again.
Summary: I've had this junk for about 6 months and its' like the old DOS computers. You solve problems by turning it off, praying and turning it back on. I've been ignoring the "latest and greatest" update for some days - yes I'm afraid of it.
Summary: I'm a technology professional and I almost never bother to write reviews. Further, I generally like LG products and I buy them for myself and I sell them to my customers. But this LG BD670 Bluray Player is the worst consumer product I've ever bought. I bought one just before Christmas 2011.
Summary: this thing works correctly about 10% of the time. Every two weeks or so it cannot connect to the network and you have to go through the process again, which doesn't ever work first time. The picture quality is pretty good but it studders constantly on some days, not at all others.
Summary: LG told me they are having a ton of problems with this model. So I ask...."Then why are you still selling them???" I have 3 of these DVD players. I have always been happy with LG products. Even LG cant fix these over the phone. I have to mail them all to LG to have them fixed.
Worked well then failed just like others have posted

Summary: We ordered the LG BD670 after reading the glowing reviews about the great video quality and the ability to bring streaming video to our home. Now after 4 months of light use the player will no longer load disks.
Summary: Received the player June of 2011. I liked the player and the up sampling. The wifi worked well. However in the beginning of this month it started to make the dreaded LOUD GRINDING noise which many others have experienced. I got it mainly to play discs. It gets worse every day.
Summary: As others have said, we bought this player based on good reviews as of July, 2011. As can be seen, the reviews now show much lower ratings. Ours did the same as many others, after 8 months it starting making horrible grinding noises and not playing many discs.
