Summary: OJ Cap was the seller. They sent us a region 4 player. Evidently I live in Region 1. Who knew? It only will play 1 DVD in my entire collection (all are labeled Region 1). The player itself sets up easily and plays that one DVD very well. We are returning it and hoping they send us the correct DVD player for my region. Good luck Googling OJ Cap. Even Amazon couldn't find the number. The good news? Since Xmas, the price has dropped $19 and there is a different supplier.
Minimalistic but solid - does not interact with TV

Summary: Most of what I would say has been said in the other reviews but in case you are looking for something that will communicate with your TV, this one does not. What I mean is this: I have a Panasonic Blu-ray player that, when you turn it on, it turns my Sony Google TV on. I can then control the Panasonic player with the Sony's remote. They are evidently sending signals back and forth over the HDMI cable. The LG does not do this. This is no biggie for me, but worth knowing.
Summary: Apparently this unit is not meant to be compatible with DVD's and Blu Rays in the US. I was not aware of this until I called customer service and was told that the unit was pretty much useless. I am returning the 2 I bought. There was no indication when I ordered the product that it was from the UK, which is what the customer service rep told me.
Summary: I liked this at first. I played three Blu Ray DVD’s, and it was wonderful! Then 1 regular DVD ( it is supposed to play BR DVD’s, reg DVD’s , CD’s etc.) Which was also great. Then, the next day, I tried 8 regular DVD’s, and it ejected them all with the error : "CHECK REGIONAL CODE” ????!!!!???? What? I have always played these just fine on ALL my other DVD players. I am FURIOUS!!! This is NOT hooked up to my computer.
Summary: This unit played Blu-Rays fine. However, when I tried to play a DVD we received a "check region code" message. I had already noticed that English was the second language on the set up instructions. After doing some research, I discovered that North & South America have the same Blu-Ray region code, but different DVD region codes.
Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS. I just got mine yesterday, hooked it up and tried to play DVDs. Each time I tried I got the error message "Error Check Region Code." There is no info as far as an owners manual or anything with this, just a start up guide. So I did searches on line & tried several fixes, but nothing worked. I finally called LG Tech support and after "troubleshooting" I was told, the unit must be defective. I'm returning it and buying a different brand.
Summary: Unfortunately I got a lemon. The first time I operated it, it worked but the next time I tried to use the player, it would not play. I recently bought an LG Smart TV and expected easy compatibility - but no luck. Spoke to the LG company but they did not wish me to return it and only offered a 50% refund. Very disappointed.
