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.
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: 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.
Pros: 2 days too late to return.the motor vibrates at such a terrible noise i looked out window thinking was construction work.too loud to even use.even at 39.00 which it was when i paid obviously 39 too much.Should of known just can't get a blue ray that cheap.I still like lg but not refurbished stuff.Was well packed so the damage was it,not shipping.
Didn't work out...too many problems. Don't waste your time, energy or money.

Summary: Bought this refurbished for a second bedroom. I have yet to get through an entire BD or DVD without it freezing. Tried DVDs I've had for a while, tried to give the benefit of the doubt that maybe they were scratched. I knew there was real trouble when I played a brand new BD and the same thing happened. This thing would freeze at random points, 25 mins in, 47 mins in, etc.
Cons: LG has terrible support, worse yet they have f/w that renders the player useless. Had no problem with the servo f/w update, that worked fine. Then I went and updated the main f/w, that was a mistake. The completion bar updated it looked like the f/w upgraded completely, the device powered it self off just as it was supposed to, but on powering up, all I get is an LG splash screen , the player is a brick. This was my first and LAST LG product. The LG support is not ver...
Summary: Bought this on Black Friday 2012 and didn't use until after Christmas. Watched no more than 10 movies before the picture started getting snowy and the sound went away. I called LG and they told me to reset it which was unsuccessful. Next they directed me to their website to get a new software version and loaded it on the player, this also proved unsuccessful. I don't watch alot of movies but expected it to last a little longer than 4 months.
Summary: I bought this to use in my new man-cave. I didn't need a networked blu ray player because I already have and Xbox in the room for that, so I was looking for a basic blu ray. The price on this seemed good so I went for it. Mistake! I plugged it into my (also brand new) Onkyo receiver to be used with an Optoma HD projector. I never made it passed the set-up screen because the image was fuzzy and kept blinking.
