It is just ok!

H, Amazon
3 August 2014
  • 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!

it's a refurb

  • Summary: but was so cheap I purchased it for testing. It won't make it through the commericals but returns to the start (probably why it is a refurb). But I really really like the concept for this box and the feature set provided which has actually proven to be wider ranging than the Rokus. Still testing but all in all, this is a great little box for those looking to escape the cable.

is it worth it?

  • Summary: The item is easy to handle, neat, very simple to begin using, however the wifi as I read online has poor reception, could not connect less than 12 feet away, had to connect to my Q10 to get service. Once I did it was great I began right away to enjoy the experience until the problem with power and connection, to summate i used it 2 days and it has been 3 days since i have used it.

Works great on Netflix, for the price

J. P., Amazon

  • Summary: I went to my local Fry's intending to buy a Roku XS. I really only wanted a way to stream Netflix since my Blu-Ray and TV aren't networkable. I happened to see this little guy for $29.99. I figured for that price I couldn't really go wrong. So I took it home and used the automated method to connect to my wireless router. No problem at all. After entering my Netflix login info I was able to browse my (streaming) queue and select a movie.

Kind of slow and does not have Amazon IV

  • Summary: I too bought this because of the price- I don't have a satellite receiver box in one room of the house, so I thought this would be the perfect, economical solution to watch TV there. It's ok- I didn't have any problems with it finding a signal, and the wireless router is probably 50 feet away (and separated by several walls#.
  • Pros: Style/Design, easy to use

Works great plugged into the router... wifi not so much

Pooks, Amazon
30 December 2012
  • Summary: I got this at Fry's and when I set it up with wifi, it didn't work. I plugged it into a switch and it rocks. It connects to my twonky perfectly and plays content off my nas & streams netflix flawlessly. One thing I don't like is that when the nas goes to sleep, it will not wake it up. I have a WD Live box and it wakes the nas up.

  • Excerpt: Не думал что Lg такое может делать. Хотя могут для устранения недостатков выпустить прошивку, но скорее они выпустят новый медиаплеер.
  • Pros: Маленький пульт, удобный интерфейс
  • Cons: не все файлы читает: не играет большинство mkv файлов, фотки тоже не все показывает

  • Excerpt: Огорчает, что LG SP520 практически лишена интернета.Реклама с достоинствами- полное вранье!Не ожидал от солидной фирмы LG/И продавец дурит, не указывает на отсутствие интернет-контента.Нет заявленных производителем качеств продукта.
  • Pros: Всеядная модель.Читает практически все.Очень маленькая, не греется.
  • Cons: Практически нет интернета.Два-три сайта вложенные в модель не являются приемлемым интернетом.Вся реклама- вранье! Разочарован.Нет обновления ПО.

  • Excerpt: Купили потому, что в нашем городке была только эта модель. Смарт TV сильно урезан, не возможно добавить ещё приложения, только если производитель в обновлении пришлёт что-нибудь. В общем покупкой огорчена.
  • Pros: Габариты, легкость подключения к сети.
  • Cons: Нет ни браузера, ни LG app. Очень маленький премиум контент.
