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...
Summary: I bought this before christmas and was pretty annoyed to find that it cannot stream from hulu plus as it was advertised on their site. Only options are netflix, youtube, and vudu. Picture and sound were as expected. Problem was it refused to read any disc after only 4 months.
Summary: This player has a lot of mixed reviews, but I was inclined to purchase this unit since my LG BD-550 worked out so well until it bit the dust in playing back everything except original DVDs and Netflix.
Summary: The player itself is fine, but the company that it came from Electronics Express, leaves a lot to be desired. After buying the player as a gift for my daughter, we realized it wasn't wireless and I asked to return the item, letting them know that it was my fault for not reading about what I was...
Great for playing DVD/Blu-ray, Not so much for streaming media

Summary: Overall it is a good Blu-Ray Player. It is great for playing Bluray disks and DVDs but not so great for streaming media. It has the capabilities to stream from Netflix, Hulu, and plenty more, but the loading time is unbearable. I mean this is America, I want everything to be instant!!!
Summary: I think overall this player is great. I may have gotten a lack luster unit. The first day I received it and hooked it up, while playing a DVD it froze and I had to unplug the player in order to reset it. I associate LG as a low cost, but quality provider.
Summary: We only use this player to watch DVD and Blu Ray movies. I use the HDMI out to the TV and digital coax to my old receiver for the 5.1 sound. It gets almost daily use. I've updated the software a couple times without trouble.
Summary: Works well and as described. Setup was very easy and straight forward. The remote control is flimsy and there are no codes from LG for the remote. Therefore any other remote cannot be programmed to work with this DVD player.
Summary: I may be spoiled since I attempted to replace a small HTPC with this device and expect so much. Pressing hulu, waiting 10 seconds, pressing the show I want, waiting 10 seconds, etc etc was just too slow. In the end, it never actually played hulu shows, only the ad first, then "loading".
Pros: Thin, sexy, full featured, plays mkv through windows media player dlna streaming server. Very affordable.
Cons: Poor Hulu support, slow interface, remote bites
