Summary: LG may make good TVs. I wouldn't know. I never will know after owning this piece of junk for the last two and a half years. Nothing but trouble. It turns itself off randomly. The user interface is horrible.
Summary: I bought this for my SamSung 55 inch TV. It works great. It has an ethernet cable, wireless and an USB port. I could put blu-ray file on a uSB disk and it plays well. There is no complaint on it. It is relable. I wish I could control it using a computer mouse as the remote key pad is not efficient.
Summary: This unit will play redbox blu ray disks but won't play some blu ray disks we've purchased elsewhere. We can't figure out why. Otherwise funtions well but we should have complete confidence it will play all disks given the relatively high price point.
Summary: Provides plenty of HDD space, and dual-band WiFi for network connectivity. Best feature of all is that the SmartPhone remote app lets you navigate the HDD on the smart-phone's screen, and in addition to that, it can be set to automatically pause whatever is playing when you receive a phone call.
Summary: I bought this as an upgrade to my BD390. The BD390 was decent, but showing age in what media formats it supported, etc. Also, the BD690 has an internal drive, and supports Amazon VoD. Set-up is pretty straightforward. Everything is labelled well on the back.
Summary: I don't have 3D so can't judge that. I bought mine in late December 2011 and yesterday - just a few weeks after the warranty expired so did the machine. While it was functional performance was iffy. Slow to boot and navigate menus.
