User Review

Cody B., Newegg
16 January 2014
  • Pros: Does everything i need. Firmware update available. The nero software lets you stream content from you PC to it and it works pretty good. Allows subtitles if you have a .SRT file with the movie. Youtube app works pretty good. netflix app works pretty good. no issues with WI-FI or LAN port.
  • Cons: Gets hot, i added a notebook fan USB cooler under it and also added a powered USB hub and it stays cold and doesn't rid of my USB port for the external HDD. The remote is tiny. Load times from nero server take awhile over wifi, but seem faster from LAN port.

  • Summary: I purchased this item 6 months ago and when I first tried setting it up I couldn't even get it to connect to my wifi because there wasn't an option to type caps so I ended up using LAN port.

VERDICT STILL OUT ON WHETHER I LIKE THE BOX

Tonya C. King, Amazon
30 July 2013
  • Summary: I don't have cable and recently purchased a new LG TV so that I could attach my computer to watch programs via WiFi. Then, I learned from LG that this box was available. I bought one here on Amazon. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE CONCEPT OF THE BOX. I just wish it would work longer than a few days.

  • Summary: This thing is garbage. It's located next to my modem and I still can't get through an hour long show without the video either cutting out or the audio suddenly stopping. Do not buy it.

Second purchase

Sharon L. Hoover, Amazon
15 July 2013
  • Summary: This is the second SP520 I have bought. The first one was excellent which is what prompted me to buy this one for another tv. After one week, the unit would no longer work on wifi. It does work using an ethernet cable. Disappointed, but I will keep & just use it wired instead of unwired.
