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.

J.M.B., Amazon

  • Summary: Beware of the "Smart TV" Today's DHS daily email referred me to this article which states that LG Smart TV's are collecting personal info and sending it back to LG servers… From the article: "However, even if the feature is disabled, information from the LG Smart TV is still sent back to LG's...

Not for computer novice

  • Summary: This product appeared to be easy to connect and set up, but I found the instructions to be quite vague. Definitely not a product for the novice electronic / computer person.

Key Codecs Missing Render It Practically Worthless

Jerome T. Abar, Amazon
29 May 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this item hoping to combine the features of my Patriot Box Office media player and my Roku streaming media player. Setup was easy enough, even the wireless part that so many users have complained about. Interface looks fine, picture looks fine.

Well... it was cheap

Newspapercrane, Amazon
26 May 2013
  • Summary: I picked this product up at fry's for $30, and I can say that it definitely has it's drawbacks. I already have a ps3 which I use for netflix, Hulu, etc, so I wasn't all that interested in that.

LG, at least put in ISO menus/playback!

Paul, Amazon
5 February 2013
  • Summary: I bought this to do Amazon playback, but already figured it would fail since it had been marked down so much. But LG, at least update the device to do dvd-ISO menu/playback. That would put me above where I was with the WD device I replaced. Please?

Decent performance, awful presentation, missing premium apps, annoying menu's

digitalicecream, Amazon
15 December 2012
  • Summary: I thought I'd save about 60% on this item instead of buying another Roku 2 XDS for the last TV. When I brought it home I found it easy to setup, the menu's were straightforward to get it on my wifi network and the apps were almost immediately updated, I don't recall if it removed Amazon, but some...

NOT FOR HULU PLUS - Restart bug at commercials.

Cody B. Langness "Phoenix_919", Amazon
9 October 2012
  • Summary: At least, not yet. Like most people, I suppose, I picked this up for a lowbie price at Fry's. Unlike many here, I actually have a fantastic wireless access point (SonicPoint Ne on the latest firmware which resolves a lot of issues), and even though I run it at 2.4Ghz instead of 5Ghz for other...

Meh

Ian M McCauley, Amazon

  • Summary: Picked up this little guy for $34 with hopes of streaming everything from Netflix to Amazon. The Good: The interface for this product is pretty straightforward and simple to navigate. It was easy to log into Hulu and Netflix immediately.
