Summary: The LG player Setup was simple. A regular Blu-Ray disc was visually stunning. I don't have my 3D Tv yet but if a regular Blu-Ray disc is any indication then it's going to be great! The premium section is where you can find Netflix, YouTube, and hulu or Pandora etc. The remote is large with big buttons. While watching a Netflix movie there was no way to fast forward to pause our mute the sound. The only button that worked was the return button or home key.
Summary: Set this up yesterday and so far it seems to work just fine playing offline material. I have ROKU for streaming input, so that's not an issue with the 520 for me. My only complaint is that when playing audio CDs (yes, some of still have those!), it only shows "track1, track2, track3...etc" instead of showing the actual title. Not sure if enabling internet access would fix this but very disappointed with this functional gap.
Summary: Baught this player 1 week back (Not from Amazon). It is sleek but the front feels plastic like despite glossy finish. Connections on back are adequate for AV. It plays almost all 2d and 3d video without any glitch. I did not notice it doing any improvement on standard video by upscaling to HD. Audio codec support is good as well including flac. Plays pictures well but no stretching options available. Internet connectivity works through wired network.
Don't buy if you want to watch Amazon Instant Video
17 May 2012
Summary: Although the information includes pictures of the Amazon app in the LG App Store, after a thirty minute call to LG Tech Support I was advised that the 2012 models no longer support Amazon Instant Video. I did not check out any other features other than I can say the LG interface is a bit of a mess. It is going back.
Summary: Excellent product. You will need to buy a compatible 'N' adaptor, upload the firmware on your computer then download the firmware on to the adaptor, so it will make your DVD work wirelessly. They are not expensive but necessary in order to be compatible with this player and make it wireless. Set up of the adaptor then the player is really easy, you just need to key in the wireless key exactly as stated on the back of your broadband hub, follow the wizard and away you go.
Summary: Although this was a refurbished product, no complaints at all. Loads far quicker than previous Panasonic blu -ray and links automatically to tv (Samsung) to render 3D high quality picture as required.
Summary: Bought this in PC World for £59.99 as it was £70 off. I wanted a Smart Blu Ray player that can access Netflix and it does just that through the LG access. It also has LoveFilm, iPlayer You Tube but NO Browser. Reason I got this was I had bought a Smart Toshiba 40" 3D Tv but Toshiba Places is useless, so had to find alternative streaming device. Ive got it connected to LAN not wifi but you can get the dongle on here for £25 if you have no choice.
