  • Summary: I was a little worried about buying a used blu-ray player but i'm glad I did, it's great for watching blu-rays and streaming movies, there's nothing like saving money. SO THANKS AMAZON!!! Stukieb P.S. The blu-ray arrived earlier than expected i've had it for five weeks now so far so good.

No app for Amazon

Wesley "WES-MAN", Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased 3 of these (BP-220) for the intention of making non smart TVs into Smart TVs. I am an Amazon Prime member and wanted to take advantage of the Prime movies available. To my surprise they have just about every app except for Amazon on this Blu Ray player. I updated the unit, tried it again and it still had the same apps. I called LG and talked to Luis.

HDMI port died within one year

xc, Amazon
5 July 2013
  • Summary: Worked generally well but there were occasional, annoying freezes. But today HDMI port totally died (still within the 1-year warranty). Coaxial connection (yellow cable) still works. Called customer service, who says labor fee is $69, even with the warranty. I will buy something else with that $69.

  • Summary: Bought this for my mom and she loves it. All mechanisms are quiet when in operation. It also was slim enough to fit in a small space she had.

My First LG Purchase ... So Far, So Good!

M. Butler "Film Addict", Amazon
10 June 2013
  • Summary: Having to discard (I took it to Best Buy for free recycling) my 2nd Toshiba all-region DVD player (both players tend to "freeze up" over time) I wanted to see what was available on Amazon in the way of another all-region player. This model (I belived it was modified) came up and I remembered that standard DVDs can be played on a Blu-ray disc player, but not the reverse.

Good price since I had a LAN cable to connect.

  • Summary: Read a few reviews about wireless WIFI units and they convince you to hard-wire your smartTV DVD player. I therefore did not need to pay the extra $$ for WIFI and this works flawlessly.

A good entry level Blu-ray player.

Chris5028, avsforum.com
1 June 2013
  • Summary: All together not a bad first Blu-ray player. The issues were not very frequent and the Pros outweighed the Cons. For the money I paid I feel that it did what I expected. It was annoying when it froze but again, for a cheap Blu-ray player it worked well and did what it was supposed to do.
  • Pros: Good video quality, my movies looked great. The upscaling worked well. I found the "Smart" hub to be easy to use.
  • Cons: The player occasionaly would re-download the firmware updates as they were released. It froze from time to time and the unit was not ver quick.

Not as advertised

Tom Truman, Amazon
22 March 2013
  • Summary: The propaganda from LG indictes that wireless internet is required. The question is: why? This product does not work on a wireless system and must be hard wired to the internet. It plays the movies very well and does permit such things as Netflix to be played without further equipment, if it is hard wired.
