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. BTW, I bought it to stream Netflix which it does with no problem other than not being able to use it wirelessly.

Summary: I have had this for last two years which I bought for $30 Fry's on black Friday. I use it to watch Movies / shows in Netflix and works just fine. I also use Youtube app to watch almost anything from songs to movies you name it. This is very good product. I wish they would add more apps to their lists that would enable user to subscribe and watch news and sports that would also be cord cutting time for me. Watch out expensive and almost worthless Charter....
Summary: This thing is junk super super slow always crashes and never connects to the internet it's very rare that it connects right and actually works for Netflix, and even then it is freezing in the middle of a show or stops playing audio lg did not work very hard on this thing, save your self the hassle and buy a better box I'll be getting something different.
Summary: I could not decide on this product or the Apple TV but I purchased this and yes I was very disappointed. I don't want to bash LG because all of my tv's are LG's. I will keep it simple, I ended up purchasing the Apple TV (it is awesome) and gave the LG smart box to the doorman of my building No Charge!
Summary: I initially purchased this unit so that my wife could watch a Netflix on TV instead of watching it on her laptop or having to plug her laptop into the TV via HDMI, but when I began to play with the other apps such as HULU Plus and Pandora I was impressed with how versatile the "little black box" was, setup was a snap, the Wi-Fi connects with ease. It literally turned my TV into a smart TV. I also like the USB port on the side so I can show photos or personal video clips.
