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: We bought this several months ago, long past the period we can return it and it's a piece of junk. It started around month 2 or 3 not playing blu rays but you could unplug it, plug it back and play it fine. Now it will simply lock up and refuse to play. Don't waste your money.
Summary: I haven't tried this with every video file, but if you clicked on this review, you're probably interested in its limitations. While yes, it does play Bluray and DVD and some video files just fine, it also does not play a lot of video files just fine. I own two LG Bluray players (2 of the BD 611's) and they've always worked great with no Cinavia issues or staggered framerate problems.
Summary: Rating: 1 of 5 I have owned this unit for about 10 months, it was manufactured in 1/12. Pros: -- Does a some of the online video streaming services. -- Plays bluRay/dvd, as well as some short local USB/network sources in select formats. -- Easy to navigate menus that you can't back out of (re Netflix, delete function in my apps, etc.) Cons: -- Slow menu system - terrible and buggy as hell, netflix even has traps you can't get out of without going "home".
