Summary: This device is quite flaky. I bought it because it would allow me to watch streaming Netflix, video files over ethernet, and Blu-Ray discs. It can do all those things...sometimes. A few months ago, it started shutting down when the Netflix app was launched. After a few days of resetting and downloading updates, it started working again. (Downloading and installing updates takes an average of 45 minutes, so I avoid it unless absolutely necessary.
Summary: I bought this item along with an LG 3D capable TV. Having first examined the LG range, and - in particular - what online options they offered with their NetCast functionality, I decided to buy a fairly basic TV, without NetCast, but add a Blu-Ray player with NetCast. Thus I could get all the online goodies via the Blu-Ray player. Big mistake.
Good features but let down by disc incompatibility.

Summary: I was lucky enough to win this player, a 3DTV and a Bluray Surround system, so I can't gripe too much here. This is a very nice player with some great features. I linked mine to my router with an ethernet cable and was able to play most of my downloaded films through the player. Once connected you have Google, Picassa and Weather at hand and you can plug in external drives with media on if you don't want to stream from a PC.
Summary: Der BX580 von LG ist eigentlich ein guter Player, der sich sofort mit meinem Netzwerk verbunden hat und problemlos alle meine Dateien (Filme, Fotos & Musik) wiedergegeben hat. Leider benutzt der Player die gleichen Fernbedienungscodes wie der Festplattenrekorder RH188 (auch von LG), so dass immer beide Geräte das gleiche machen (an, aus, play, Pause, stop, ...).
