Summary: The LG BP530 has built-in Wi-Fi and a good selection of apps, but there are just enough quirks to keep it from being a top Blu-ray player pick.
Pros: The LG BP530 offers a fine selection of streaming services, built-in Wi-Fi, and decent disc playback. It also features subtle styling and a well-laid-out remote and is easy to use, despite some user interface clutter.
Cons: Netflix loads particularly slowly. The neat Private Listening feature only works with discs, not apps, and isn't reliable. And there are minor image quality issues for picky viewers.
Summary: If you want 3D, the LG BP620 has most of the right features, but the absence of Amazon Instant and a dedicated Netflix button hurt its value a bit.
Pros: The LG BP620 has built-in Wi-Fi, 3D compatibility, and LG's Smart TV suite of streaming-media services, which includes Netflix, Hulu Plus, Pandora, and Vudu. The user interface for the Smart TV services is the best on any Blu-ray player this year.
Cons: The BP620 lacks Amazon Instant streaming, and several other services (MLB.TV, MOG) aren't available yet. The remote doesn't have dedicated buttons for Netflix or to jump right to the Smart TV services. And the step-down BP320 is a slightly better deal if you don't need 3D compatibility.
Excerpt: The SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) requires mutual fund companies to tell investors that a fund’s past performance does not necessarily predict future results—and the same could be said of Blu-ray players. In the case of LG, I’ve had the opportunity to audition its top-of-the-line offering for each of the past four years.

Summary: As 3D, Smart Blu-ray players go, the LG BP620 is one of the best. It’s not especially expensive, it’s got all the features we want, and it’s generally easy to use and quick to operate. Apart from a few small issues with the interface, we found the BP620 to be a great product.
Pros: Quick to respond to inputs, Simple but attractive and intuitive interface, Excellent range of features and apps
Summary: Mit dem BP620 bietet LG den perfekten Player für den ambitionierten Einstieg an mit allem, was ein Player braucht, ein leistungsstarkes WLAN-Modul inbegriffen. Das neue Menü ist noch übersichtlicher geworden, die Anbindung an das Heimnetzwerk gelingt mühelos, lediglich die Disk muss noch eingeschoben werden. Danach heißt es in der Tat: Füße hoch und ab geht’s.
