Summary: If your buying this for internet streaming, think again. I think there's quite a lot of reviews on this, mostly showing 4-5 stars. I was given this as a present, and I thought it was quite cool at first however I rarely use it for the reasons it was bought for. I don't download movies, or anything like that. I buy DVD's/Blu-Rays and prefer to watch them as-is. The player has played everything I've thrown at it, which has been fine.
Summary: I was very happy with this player but can't give it 5 stars because I only tried a limited range of its features. It's certainly backwards compatible - great picture playing a DVD. There was no distracting noise. It also played movies from my external hard-drive, & picked up You-tube & the weather from the internet. I returned it because I also wanted to access BBCIplayer and the LG forum didn't look encouraging.
Summary: manual needed to set up (i found it very technical) once set up this dvd player is like a dream to use easy to navigate through the menus and to update on the internet, still haven't worked out how to use the remote control fully too many buttons for me. the simplink is handy if you have any other LG items you can operate the tv with the dvd remote and vise versa. all in all very impressed.
Summary: Dass ich in Besitz eines neuen, großen 3D-LED-Fernsehers von LG bin, wissen einige aufmerksame Leser meiner Berichte ja bereits. Um aber die 3D-Funktion überhaupt nutzen zu können, war es notwendig, dass ich auch gleich einen 3D-fähigen Blu-ray-Player verwenden kann. Im Rahmen meines dreimonatigen Tests wurde mir deswegen auch der neue BX580 zur Verfügung gestellt.
