Summary: I bought this player for my sister so that she could watch all of the movies that I've collected throughout the years. I also made sure that the Blu-ray player could up convert regular dvds to near high definition quality .She is quite happy with her LG BP125 Blu-Ray player,and a newly converted fan of high definition!
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: I have lots of bills :( if it wasn't for this refurbish i wouldn't have got a blu ray.glad i took the chance on it.It is very small/compact more than i thought would be.
Pros: price of course.I found not a tiny scratch on it.plays blu rays and dvds just fine.
Cons: well i have to choose music,photo or movie right away from a data disk can't just view all folders at once.same with usb.very laggy about exiting too.no batteries came with.The instruction maunual is a joke but if kinda tech savy you'll not need it.
Summary: I bought this on sale from newegg for 35 bucks, what a deal ! After reading the reviews I'll admit I was a little hesitant, but I'm sure glad I went for it. The DVD up conversion is GREAT, (at least the dvd's I tried). I found no need to update the firmware as it works perfectly out of the box, I'm a firm believer in "if it aint broke dont fix it" . If you are looking for a BASIC PLAYER with no smart features, GET ONE when they go on sale while they still have them!!!
