Summary: The biggest way that LG tries to set the BP730 apart is with the Magic Remote. In my use I find it to be wonderful ergonomically but not offering much benefit over a regular remote. I like having buttons I can quickly access to use, and missing the Menu and Eject buttons is a problem for me. Having the cursor usually doesn't provide much benefit and there is no way to disable it.
Excerpt: With fast disc loading times and tons of features, the LG BP730 is a great Blu-ray player for your home theater. (4 out of 5) Editor’s Choice Pros Very fast Tons of features Good video processing Cons Magic Remote is tricky to get used to Blu-ray players have come a long way in a few
Pros: Very fast, Tons of features, Good video processing
Conclusion: The BP730 certainly has the looks, thanks to a slim-line design that incorporates a two-tone construction with brushed metal on top and gloss black at the bottom. There is a central recess where the disc slot is hidden and there's also some touch sensitive controls and a useful display. At the rear is a very basic set of connections, with just a HDMI output, an optical audio output and an Ethernet port.
Pros: Flawless Blu-ray playback, Excellent video processing, Impressive build quality, Extensive feature set, Well designed menu system, Attractive styling and design
Excerpt: With no shortage of budget Blu-ray players on the market, differentiating one manufacturer’s player from another on paper is becoming increasingly tough. As a result, extra functionality and features are playing an ever-increasing role.
Pros: Stylish design, Some neat features, Decent Blu-ray picture, Meaty bass
Cons: Poor upscaled images, Picture lacks punch and vividness, Sounds messy with music, Limited smart content
Excerpt: Fazit: Der LG BP730 lieferte im Test eine gute Leistung ab. Die Gestaltung des Menüs wirkt ausgereift, und die Bedienung der ungewöhnlichen Fernbedienung (Bewegungssteuerung) funktioniert nach einigen Minuten Eingewöhnungszeit einwandfrei. Mit schnellen 9 Sekunden beim Einlesen einer DVD ist er in der Bestenliste derzeit ungeschlagen. Allerdings finden sich im Lieferumfang keine Kabel.
Pros: MagicRemote, 4K, Gracenote
Cons: Wenig Anschlüsse, Keine Kabel im Lieferumfang
