Summary: Just received this unit and it has serious wifi problems. It can only detect two networks out of the dozen-ish everything else in my house can detect, and they are the two with the worst signal, not to mention not my network. So I can not connect it, even manually inputting my info into the unit. This is useless.

Summary: You have to have this thing pretty close to your wireless or directly plugged in for it to work. We have pretty fast internet and this unit can't seem to keep up. It constantly loses connection and will stream at very low quality. When it does work it is very nice, but I have given up on trying to get Netflix through it, but it has a great picture for Blu-ray discs or digital copies on USB stick... I would not recommend this to a friend...
Summary: I don't really understand electronics. I needed a Blu-ray player with internet and it worked perfectly. It has Wi-fi, so I didn't need internet cords or anything else but an HDMI cord, that by the way doesn't come with it. I love it. It has easy access and the youtube connects with my phone so I can use it to navigate - that is much less annoying than having to do it with the remote. It has NETFLIX, YOUTUBE, HULU PLUS and other apps already installed.
Summary: I haven't used the player for Blu Rays or DVDs. It randomly has issues playing certain Netflix titles that any other Netflix enabled device in our home won't have any issue playing. No MLB.tv support.
Little Icon pops up repeatedly while watching movies. Drives me insane.

Summary: Pros: It plays Blu-Rays, it plays DVDs. That's all I really wanted. Cons: Loaded up with features that every other device I own can do. (I suppose you'd be hard pressed to find a BD player that doesn't have a netflix icon on the homescreen.) Disc tray often sticks and requires multiple presses of the open button to actually open.
Summary: I had a heck of a time getting this to play VHS tapes, they would not fit in the front slot. A friend suggested I try these newfangled thingies called DVDs. They seem to work okay. I'm sad that I can no longer watch my collection of 80's info-mercials but when I was at the store buying "DVDs" I saw these even more expensive DVDs called "Blu-Ray". They spelled blue wrong but that's ok, I bought one anyway and tried it out.
LG is a cutting edge comanpany. So why can't it get these things to work right?

Summary: After reading several reviews and many of them being mixed as to what one would think of this device. I have fallen into the bad choice. A BRAND NEW device bought and arrived on time. Easy install and after a few tweaks to make everything work I went out and bought my first blu-ray only to have it told it couldn't read it. I had another one and tried that with no luck.
Summary: This is a great blu-ray player but don't purchase this for the wi-fi feature. Initially this worked great with netflix but then it started to make me login several times each time I wanted to use it (settings unlocked, no password required), and now it won't let me get in at all. I am computer/internet/wireless savvy so I know all about what needs to be done, re-set, download new drivers, default settings etc.
