Summary: When plugged into an LG smart TV, the functions link such that the LG TV remote controls (regular and "magic") control this player, too, without any additional setup. Plays DVDs and 2D & 3D Blu-ray discs without any issues.
Summary: Absolute garbage. Both the player and LG's customer service. It worked fine for a couple months and then would not read any disc we tried to play. It just always comes up as "no disc". Called LG's customer service and they told me the lens was just dirty, so get a cleaning kit and that should fix it. So, I spent $20 on a cleaning kit and it still doesn't work. Called LG back up and asked what to do next.
Wifi doesn't work well, keep getting annoying icon popping up on screen
17 November 2013
Summary: The wifi on my unit doesn't work half the time. Unfortunately, they don't have a way to turn it off. So when I'm watching a disc (which needs no wifi connection) I get this annoying world icon popping up every few seconds on the screen. This is extremely annoying, especially if I'm watching a 3D movie.
Summary: This player worked great until we had to do a software upgrade to play a newer Disney movie. Since then, it skips or there are portions of a movie you cannot hear. Every time we turn it on we have to do a software upgrade if there are any hopes that it will work properly.
Summary: Luckily I bought the 1 year service net plan with it so when the 1 year mark hits, I should be good to get a replacement.
Pros: Did what I wanted it to - play Netflix and Blurays
Cons: Worked for about 4 months and crashed. Unit turns on but gets stuck on the LG logo screen. Won't go to the home screen or autoplay any disc. **ALWAYS READ THE FINE PRINT** I'm usually pet peeve'n about manufacturer warranty but I missed the fine print on this unit. 1 year warranty on parts but only 90 day warranty on labor. Called tech support a couple times to troubleshoot the unit but they want me to send it in - $69 for the labor!!! For that price, I can buy a bran...
