Summary: Liked the overall features and quality but was a bit surprised that the Streaming apps were very limited (no Hulu). The biggest problem I had was that it had difficulty maintaining the WiFi linkage despite other appliances managing this without problems.
Good price, Product exchanged, poor customer service

Summary: Price - 5 star with this many features. Quality - 4 star. The unit was ok so far. Play most blu ray and DVD. Update software but still can not play some blu ray discs. It could. be some older blu ray formats it does not support. Support blu ray, 3D, DVD, and data, and wireless, very impressive. I don't agree with some complaints about No output other than HDMI. The only way 3D works is through HDMI. Thus, there is no point using any other video/audio output.
Summary: Wireless connection worked for one day then had to send it back to LG to be fixed. Everything is working now but I a a little disappointed that it only has a few things loaded to connect to and no way to add others, so adding redbox or hulu is not going to happen. Had problems with the sound on movies until the software was upgraded. It is ok if you have netflix, but they should of made it more configurable for adding features.
Summary: I am still trying to find out how to get my surround sound to come through this device? No way I guess. We had a plain old DVD player that worked great and we had surround. Now my surround only works for the TV and when we play a Blue Ray DVD the sound comes from the TV. NOT happy about that. One tech told me if the surround came from the TV, the Blue Ray is connected to the TV (and it IS with the HDMI cable) I should have surround. I don't!
Summary: This product is okay for the money, but why spend extra money for something that is internet ready and will not allow you to add apps. The only options this gives you is Netflix, Vudu, Weather, Youtube, and Picasa. If you are looking for an internet ready devise get another, this one is no better then a basic no internet one.
Summary: This player is listed in the Amazon compatible device list as working with prime instant video. The main reason I purchased it !! IT DOES NOT !! Like most of the major electronics devices it will not work with prime video. (Android etc). It also has only 3 rubbish network apps without the ability to install more. The player is quite good for discs and indeed USB devices but there are better cheaper ones out there for this.
