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.
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.
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: looks really good nice and modern but if it only worked as good as it looked. so when i first unpackaged it i noticed that it only had 1 hdmi port and regular audio and visual cables nothing for hd cables, then i start to use the device and worked just fine come back latter try to do the exact same thing froze on me every time had to unpluge it cause the power on the device and remote wouldnt shut it off ....
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.
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.
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.
