Summary: Good decent Blu-ray DVD player with Internet connectivity and internet streaming capability. I mainly use the player to play Blu-ray rented DVDs. Do not use the Internet streaming capability at all although have updated the FW through the internet once already which is very convenient.
Summary: My old DVD player broke and I decided to upgrade to Blu-ray. I bought this Device because Sony use to be a great brand. We have been streaming more than watching DVDS or Blu-rays so when this product stated that it was able to stream wirelessly it was like Bingo!
Summary: To the reviewer who stated "It also plays 3D disks and BD-live disks that automatically download bonus content but those were not evaluated because of my set-up." News flash: this unit does NOT play 3D disks.
Summary: I am quite happy with the blu-ray player itself. Great quality picture, easy to set up. However, I ordered through Amazon due to ease of delivery ~ no need to even hop in my car for add'l components since HDMI cable included (so stated in guide as well on Amazon website).

Summary: One of the LG Blu-ray players will connect to Windows File Shares which makes videos instantly available versus DLNA which seems to require some kind of refresh (indexing?) process to run on the media host. That was the deal breaker for me. The UI is very Playstation 3.
Summary: Reasonably priced and nice and compact. It has an abundance of apps which is great. My biggest complaint is how slow it is. You click buttons on the remote and literally wait 1 to 3 seconds for something to happen. My PS3 from 2005 is instantaneous to this day when I hit buttons on the remote.

Summary: This product works. I never used it for BluRay only for the smart app - and to get Amazon Prime on my TV. + It works and gets Amazon Prime - The internet takes forever to load on this thing (I know it's this because it loads fine on all my other devices) sometimes it takes 4 or 5 reloads before it...
