NO YOU TUBE

By Thomas84 from Green River, WY on 07/26/2015


Pros:

Features/settings

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Since You Tube Changed their format, you cannot watch you tube on this device. They need to either send a software update or alert potential customers that this Blu Ray is obsolete.

It's ok, but problems.

By Karaokestar from South Dakota, USA on 05/17/2015


Pros:

Performance

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I like the picture and sound, when it starts. Most of the time after putting a disc in it it locks up and will not play and all functions will not operate. I then have to unplug and reset several times to be able to watch the movie. I have had this problem since I've had it. The remote stopped working 6 months after I bought the unit

It was great while it worked

By dl13 from Indiana, USA on 03/07/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I was happy with the BD550 until shortly after the warranty ran out it stopped playing BD disks. Everything else still works fine, and it still plays DVD, just no BD.

Great player, mediocre software

By CBrianA from Undisclosed on 01/25/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This one was purchased to replace another player that stopped working. It HAD to have Netflix and VuDu, but anything else just added to the value. The player hookup was so simple - just three wires, incuding the Cat-5. Once it was powered up, I just had to set the language. It found the network and was ready to go. This unit has DLNA, which was something I wanted, but had not listed as a requirement. It comes with the Nero Media Home, which works, but is difficult to use. When media is added, I found it was necessary to stop the server and restart it before the BluRay player would find it. Other DLNA server software will work with the unit, including Windows Media Player, but you have to set each one up before you can stream. Overall, this is an excellent player, but you should remember that you aren't limited to the software that comes with the package.

A Blu-Ray player which won't play Blu Ray discs

By NHR from GA on 07/06/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I received the players as a gift for Christmas one year. We've had it for about 2 years now. The interface is poor at best and the included programs are awful(Netflix, Pandora). This is really fine as we just use our Nintendo WII for most streaming tasks. Recently our player has stopped playing Blu-Ray discs. We put the disc into the player, it attempts to read it for a few minutes, then spits it back out. DVDs still work, but all Blu-Ray discs are a no-go now. The problem started intermittently but now every disc is rejected. We verified that the firmware was up to date and reset to factory defaults. Nothing has worked so now we are shopping for a new player which isn't made by LG.

Pros:

Easy To Use, Quality, Features/settings, Performance

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I only gave Overall 4 stars just because this is an older model that while wireless ready it needs to be plugged into the router. This has nice features and I appreciate the way this works. I never have a connectivity problem and rarely locks up. For the price it's a nice BD. Thanks LG you never let me down no matter what product it is.

Frustrating issue; average features

By RustyS from Austin, TX, USA on 12/12/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

In order of increasing importance: 1. Competing devices have more content options. This only has Netflix, YouTube, and 2 worthless options. 2. It cannot do wifi, despite having a USB slot. 3. There has been no firmware/software update since we've owned it, ~1 year. 4. That's extremely unfortunate for us, since it has developed a vexing issue: if one changes disc chapters, a giant black box suddenly "covers" most of the picture. Only around the slim edges can you see the movie. Changing picture options doesn't fix this. Unlocking the parental options doesn't fix this. The only way to get the giant box to go away is to reboot. Boot time is significant, so this is a hassle. This happens EVERY time you try to change chapters, and in certain other operations, too, I believe.

By travelingrammy from Meriden, KS 66512, USA on 08/17/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I received this as a gift. Ive used it for six months and the picture froze. Then it started kicking the dvd out and wouldnt play. I would unplug it and reset it and it would work for a few days. Then it just quit all together. I read reviews on other sites and everyone of them had the same problem I had.

LG quality and fast startup time.

By RustedBrain from Pocatello, ID on 04/11/2012


Pros:

Fast Startup Time, Features/settings, Quality, Easy To Use, Performance

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This Blu-ray player is the fastest I've seen, from power on and startup to the drawer opening. The pictures it produces on my 42LH30 are amazing. I love being able to access Netflix and YouTube videos and you can also play other movies, music and pictures from a USB device when connected to its convenient USB port on front. I have the player connected to my home network and am impressed with LG's continued support with patches and software upgrades.

Awesome product

By Nano from Ogden, UT, USA on 03/09/2012


Pros:

Features/settings, Easy To Use, Performance

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The Good I've had mine for about a year. I love it. The wireless is very easy to setup and so is accessing files on my computer. Netflix, hulu and other streaming services work perfectly. Blue-ray playback could be a little faster. Some Blue-Ray movies will require you to insert a USB flash drive but once that is done it runs pretty fast. DVD playback is up-scaled and it is great. There are frequent updates. The Bad: sometimes it takes me a couple reboots to get it to respond right and find my computer (not very often). Wish List: I wish it could decode ISO (DVD images). I wish the remote had a keyboard.

Pros:

Nothing

Bottom Line:

Blue-Ray DVD device didn't have subtitle English from disk with CC. No matter device has setting for it but it was not working. I was very disappointed with it. I notice device is discontinued. It is not fair for me not able to view movie or film without closed captioning. Waste my money and angry.

Not yet ready for sale

By Dissatisfied Customer from Tulsa, OK on 11/27/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I've had my BD390 for a little over a year and while it does a great job doing everything except play Blu Ray disks, it is horribly incompatible with too many disks. I've kept the unit upgraded to the latest software, and I've called the tech support people still, it refuses to play some disks. If I had it to do over again I would just buy a DVD player.

Much better than software Blu-ray players!

By Solipso from Los Angeles, CA on 11/19/2011


Pros:

Style/design, Features/settings, Easy To Use, Performance

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

> I was tired of troublesome software Blu-ray players that I had been using with my PC. First, software-player updates were provided only for a limited time, about two or three years I think. After that, newly released Blu-rays that required updates could not be watched. Not unless I bought the softwares upgrade version, which was not cheap. Second, even after I bought the upgrade version, it was buggy. > So I began looking for another way to watch Blu-rays. > LG came to my rescue with its BD630. It was inexpensive, about the same price I paid for the upgrade version of one of my two software players. It is about 18 long, but less than 8 wide and 2 thick. I stand my 24 combo HDTV/monitor on top of some books, and on the same books in front of my monitor, there is room for my BD630. My computer keyboard is on the front edge of my desk, in front of my BD630. Because the BD630 is elevated, I can open its tray above my keyboard. > My monitor has two HDMI inputs, one for my PC and one for my BD630. My monitor allows me to switch inputs; so I dont need to have my PC on while watching Blu-rays. But because I use the same monitor for both my PC and my BD630, and because my BD630 fits neatly on my desk, it is part of my desktop environment. > But the BD630 gives me more than salvation from buggy and expensive software. On the right edge of its front side, there is a USB port that allows me to download firmware updates from the Internet and install them on my player by using my USB flash drive. I updated the BD630s firmware immediately, and it was a neat and easy process. > A couple of other important qualities of my BD630: 1) It comes with a remote controller, allowing me to stretch out my legs, move away from my desk, and watch Blu-rays without having to use my keyboard. 2) The picture quality from the BD630 is BETTER than what I was getting from either of my software players. (For sound, I use a headphones port on my monitor. It is plenty loud, and it has excellent surround sound.) > I have read of people who have had trouble using the BD630 to stream content from the Web. I can't judge the BD630 in that respect. I don't use it for that; I use it strictly as a player. My PC does a perfectly good job in streaming. (Blu-ray software is not needed for streaming Blu-ray/HD content.) > Also, I have used the BD630 for only a few weeks. So I can't judge its durability. > Regarding the BD630's low price, I admit that was its most attractive attribute, initially. But good reviews and tidy dimensions were also important. And now, having witnessed its picture quality and funtionality with its menu, its USB port, and its remote controller, I really think I could not have gotten a better deal at ANY price.

Superior Blu-Ray Player

By JoeF47 from Lacon, IL on 11/11/2011


Pros:

Quality, Performance, Style/design, Easy To Use Remote, Easy To Use, Features/settings

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I now own 4 of these players. 2 for my sons and 2 for me. They are simply the best and are better than the competition for several reasons. They are easy to set up and use, updates (if required) are easy - I downloaded to my USB device, the manual is easy to understand. The proof, however, is the gorgeous picture on my HD TV (I own an LG and a Samsung).

This is my first Blu-ray player but not my first LG product. I always feel confident when purchasing an LG and the BD630 is no exception. I didn't need anything too extravagant, so this was perfect for my needs and the price is right! I love using the USB connection to play my media files. Overall, an excellent product.

Pros:

Quality, Style/design, Easy To Use, Performance, Features/settings

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought an LG tv a while ago, and figured I should also buy a blu ray player if I wanted to experience hd at its best. This player is very easy to install, and very easy to use. The price was also great. So if you are looking for a blu ray player in its most simple and eloquent form, this is the one.

I love LG I have purchased 2 BD players and burners for my computer. I have also purchased 2 BD players for my home the 390 and 630 and have also purchased a 32 inch LCD and a 37 inch LCD. I have found that for performance and quality LG can't be beat. They all are very easy to use and all work great. I have had the burners for about 2 years and one TV and BD player for about one year and just purchased another TV and BD player within the last week. I would recommend LG to anybody who wants quality, ease of use and reliable performance.

Simply awesome

By Copper8269 from Undisclosed on 10/05/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Over the past few years, I have had the pleasure of owning several Blue Ray DVD players. However, the LG BD550 has by far is the best the player have. Easy set up as well as easy functionality has made this device easy to use for my entire family. I also like how I can still receive software updates over the internet and it communicates with other LG products. For example: I currently have it hooked up to a LG TV, if the TV is off, this player will turn it on when i push the power button the player. Simply put, I am incredibly happy with this product.

Very Nice DVD

By IT Man from Southeast Ohio on 10/04/2011


Pros:

Performance

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am becoming more and more a fan of LG products. I bought this based on reviews and the brand name. It does everything I need. I don't download movies so I have no interest in that aspect of the player. The picture quality is the most important part for me. It does not disappoint. It even greatly improves older DVD's. When it comes time to replace, I'll get another LG. A multiple DVD carosel would make this about perfect. I gues that will be a future model.

Outstanding Value

Pros:

Quality, Features/settings, Easy To Use, Performance

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This was the first BlueRay player I ever bought. I used a wireless ethernet station to connect it to my home network and watch Netflix and Accu-Weather and to listen to Pandora Radio. It has never failed me, simple to set up, perfect on-screen menus help you through everything. Picture quality from both disk and network are perfect. Plays BlueRay disks perfectly, and the firmware is regularly updated either on-line directly or by using the USB connection and a thumb drive. I will buy LG again, this time a model with built-in wireless!

Good first connected blu-ray player

By dcc from Colorado on 10/03/2011


Pros:

Quality, Easy To Use

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is my first blu-ray player and connected device, and I've been happy with it. I feel it is good quality - reliable, durable, does what it was designed to. DVD and blu-ray load time seems slow, but works consistently well. I use the Netflix feature all the time -- although these days I'm more tempted to quit Netflix which means I might use this device less. Have also used Vudu and CinemaNow a bit. Personally have not found much use for the other "Netcast" features (MLB.tv, Divx.tv, Youtube, Napster, Picasa and AccuWeather). I take that back -- we've used the Pandora quite a bit too. Netcase is easy to use and performs well. Setup of the device was easy in my case since I had an extra wifi router with ethernet to plug into. Otherwise, a device with Wifi is essential.

Pros:

Features/settings, Easy To Use, Quality

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I was looking for a feature-rich but budget-friendly Blu-ray player a few months ago when I found this one. After checking reviews online and features in person, this turned out to be the clear winner. The only feature it doesn't have that I've come to want is an upgrade to NetCast that would add Amazon video; the only problem I've had is not being able to sign into Picasa (but I only have one photo posted there, so I don't really miss that!)

Connects well to the internet for Netflix, youtube, etc. The picture is wonderful on both HD and SD videos from netflix. Vudu is great also. Blu-ray discs play well...never had a problem playing any discs and standard dvds look very good. This model has now been discontinued(don't know why...it's great) but I am still able to get software updates. I am extremely happy with my purchase and would purchase LG products again.

great value

By BigLes from Hampton Roads, VA on 09/19/2011


Pros:

Performance, Quality, Style/design

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this mainly for Netflix & YouTube, but I was thinking it would work for facebook as well....no such luck. Despite that it's a great device, but the search features are less than desirable. Typing in the onscreen virtual keyboard is extremely tedious, and the Netflix app doesn't allow you to search at all. My workaround is to add to my queue from my desktop or tablet. Overall it's great for the price and for my needs, and I would recommend it to friend/family.

Great Blu-ray player

By SeminaryKid from Chicago, Il. on 09/16/2011


Pros:

Performance

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is a great, inexpensive Blu-ray player. We use it primarily for optical discs but have used it with the Netcast services as well. This is the first Blu-ray player that I have had experience with and I'm pretty happy with it. The image quality of both standard dvds and also Blu-rays is great. I actually have a copy of HP6 on both DVD and Blu-ray and find it fairly difficult to see a difference in the two discs when played back to back as the upconversion on this player is so good. That was a pleasant surprise as I have a fairly large dvd library to work with. Streaming works pretty well for both Netflix and Pandora. We have an LG tv that we use for Netflix most often so don't use that feature on the player, but the tv does not have Pandora as a Netcast service, so we use the player for that. The player is fairly easy to use and works well. Well enough actually that we gave one to my in-laws for a Christmas present this last year.

Pros:

Features/settings, Performance, Easy To Use

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Overall pleased with this product. For the price it delivers an excellent picture and sound. And, I like the selection of online media from Cinema Now, Vudu, Netflix, YouTube, Picasa and Pandora. There have been a few Blu-ray discs from Netflix that have not played on this player. The case feels a bit too lightweight to me. And, I wish Hulu was an available online selection.

Not upgradeable

By Disappointed from Indiana on 09/12/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This unit came with NetCast which includes NetFlix, Vudu, MovieNow, & YouTube. All indications were that it would soon have Hulu added. This is not the case, as the FAQ section states there are no plans to upgrade, and it is Hulu's fault for not having the software. No Yahoo Widgets, no Pandora, no Hulu, no Facebook, etc etc etc. Obsolete while still on the shelf.

Pros:

Out of the box, installed updates, perfect operation. Very fast loading. Amazing 'standard' DVD display on screen. Equipment 'menu' very easy to follow. Would encourage HDMI cable use over red/white/yellow. (Fewer cables to worry about routing through cabinet and a much improved display.) I have been recommending this unit to everyone I come in contact with that is interested in purchasing a new Blu-ray player.

REGION FREE PLAYABILITY

By KARAOKEJUNKIE from STATEN ISLAND, NY on 08/01/2011


Pros:

Easy To Use, Features/settings, Performance, Quality

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

There is a 2011 version of BD630 with a converter added that allows you to view any disc regardless of region or country, a terrific option. It is more expensive but it works beautifully. On the remote a zoom function is about the best I've seen in any player as it expands the aspect ratio in increments. I couldn't be more pleased as the sound and video quality are outstanding. I have it hooked up to my LG 42LV5500, which is an LED TV, and the combo is breathtaking.

Pros:

Quality, Easy To Use, Performance

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Let's face it, for the cost and the features you get, you can't beat it! Easy to use, easy to setup, great quality and great features. The one issue with it is (and this is the 5%) unless you have 1 of the 6 TVs they list you can't use the remote control for anything other than the BD player. If LG would fix that one issue - this would be a flawless player.

The picture could use a little improvement when up-scaling a DVD. Netflix loads faster than on our Wii. Wish it was possible to stream video/audio over the network to the player, from a pc. I'm not sure I would ever turn it off then.

Great BluRay Player for the Price

By kroitk from Rye, NH on 07/02/2011


Pros:

Performance, Easy To Use

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love the quality of the audio and video from the bluray disks and the DVD upconversion is great. The YouTube and Netflix access is a great bonus. Setup is a no-brainer. It was essentially plug-and-play. It allowed me to do a firmware update directly through my ethernet connection. However, I keep having problems with the BD630 freezing. At times it will not cancel the last command and the only way to reset it is to unplug it. I returned it for a second unit and I expreience the same problems.

This came as bonus package with LCD/LED TV -LV5500 purchased for parents' 60 anniversary package. They did not want it. I took it and was pleased with ease of set up and use with my outdated analog TV and Onkyo AV receiver. Streamed Netflix TV show on the first try. Can't wait to purchase LV550 LCD/LED similar to parents which had outstanding picture after I set it up for my parents. The BD630 will rock paired with that TV.

I reviewed and compared many Blu Ray Players and chose LG to be compatible to my LG 42" HD TV. I only purchased a blu ray player to do one thing- to play Blu Ray movies. Last night wife and I watched "The King's Speech" which was a good movie- Blu Ray made it a great movie. The setup is easy for a senior like me- connected it up and was running in 15 minutes.

First Bluray player: good but not excellent

By wastingtime from Los Alamos, NM on 05/05/2011


Pros:

Value For Price

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This is my first HD experience: bought BD550 and 55LE4500 TV, hooked them through HDMI, and was looking at Bluray disks and upconverted DVDs; very easy to use. Was happy for a while, till I noticed that blu-ray playbacks would often be interrupted with the video switching off for a second or less ... still haven't figured out what is wrong. The features I don't much care about since I have internet access and DLNA on the TV, but the regular updates are good. What is missing about the updates is any description of what the update does! And, the requirement to remove disks and usb sticks for an upgrade to take place is irritating to say the least. Additional useful feature would have been automatic ethernet from the power line if homeplug a/v was automatically installed.

I bought this unit thinking it would be great since it has a network connection. What a joke !!! After spending hours trying to get it to connect through my cable connection, it just sits there and tells me that there is an upgrade available. When I try to download the upgrade it justs sits there and then times out. My cable connection is rated at 5MPS and I've had it checked. Be careful with this one!!!

Pros:

Features/settings, Easy To Use

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This was purchased just to see what was the difference between regular DVD and B-R. Although it was on a clearance sale, I was surprised at the realism of the B-R movies as compared to DVDs. At first I thought it was due to the new TV that was also purchased, but when I tried it on my older Sony Bravia, the difference was there for all to see. The LG player DID show a significant difference in the quality of the video both with B-R discs and with dvd's. It was extremely easy to setup (I did use an HDMI cord). Only a few button pushes was needed to setup. And suddenly I was emerged into the world of Blueray.

Pros:

Bottom Line:

This is a perfect product for blu-ray viewing and netflix/youtube etc. I haven't experienced any problems so far. It has some usability issues though : 1) You cannot type movie name in netflix to search. This means you have to do some home work on your computer if you want to watch a particular movie. 2) The length of the text field for YouTube video names is limited. If a video has a long name (like the loooooooooooonnnnngggg cat ) then it won't show up completely on the screen.

Good BD Player / BAD CD PLAYER

By Theo from New York, NY on 07/19/2010


Pros:

Style/design, Easy To Use, Netflix

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought this mostly for the netflix integration which is flawless. This is a great blu-ray player. Where this unit really falls short is as a simple audio CD player. Though I realize it was not designed with that in mind, the audio aspects of this unit leave you wishing for a lot more. For instance, the display on the front of the unit doesn't even display CD track #. Only way to find out what track you're on is to turn on the TV and use the GUI for the player. CD load times are also painfully slow. Was excited when I bought this unit b/c I thought it would solve to problems for me: blu-ray playback and audio CD playback. Turns out I was wrong and need to buy a separate CD player to enjoy my music as well.

My only complaint is the loading mechanism which sometimes gags on disks, since the media loads on a bit of an angle, and can partially slide out when you push 'close'. We finally had to send it in for service when it jammed. If you have this machine, I recommend you use extra care in laying the disk snug inside the platter.

Pros:

Bottom Line:

Easy to install and use. Had to buy the internet wireless modem to connect with my wireless hub instead of the player already having it as a feature. Connects fine to my hub and internet features are easy to use. Would recommend to others as a lower cost unit but would buy the model that has wireless already built in the next time

Great Blu ray player for money. Very easy to use. I use the player mainly for steaming video via Netflix. Setup for this was a matter of minutes. Enjoy the fact that you can browse Netflix without using a PC.

Pros:

Internet Connectivity, Features/settings, Easy To Use, Performance, Quality

This may be a discontinued device but it gave me much much more than I expected. It has changed my home entertainment life. Access to Netflix and other programs via the internet and the quality of the machine in unbelievable. It makes cable movies and programming almost obsolete. I may even fire my cable tv service. In 30 years this is the first electronic device that is near flawless. The next time I walk into an electronics store and have a need for a new product, I am walking straight to the LG displays. Good customer service and reasonable prices too!

happy buy

By treg from San Diego, CA on 07/10/2010


Pros:

Style/design, Easy To Use

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I connected my blu ray player with an HDMI cable to my LG LCD TV, a very simple and easy set up. When the player turns on, my LG TV automically switches input to HDMI. The player automatically converts wide-screen video to full screen, a somewhat pleasant surprise. When watching standard definition dvd's, the picture looks better than it does on my other non-blu ray players. The only thing I don't like is when selecting chapters, while the dvd is already playing, I can't use the numerical buttons on the remote to select scenes. For example, if I want to watch the sixth clip on a video, I can't push the '6' button on the blu ray player remote. Instead, I have to use the skip functions on the remote. Other than that, I've been very impressed.

Great, but needs a few minor tweaks!

By i22yb from Everett, WA on 07/09/2010


Pros:

Features/settings, Performance, Easy To Use, Software Is Updated Regularly

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Overall I'm pretty happy with this product. It's easy to use and setup. The following are some minor tweaks that would have made it perfect: 1) I have an LG 42" LCD TV; however the bluray remote only allows for channel up/down on the TV - why can't I use the keypad on the remote to navigate channels on the TV? 2) Having a network jack on the back, i kind of assumed this player would be able to receive a video signal over the network from a standard A/V server and/or be able to browse network file shares. For the price, this should be an included feature and should be made available via a software update! 3) In 1080p the bluray menu with it's cubes under water theme is a bit laggy (tolerable, but laggy). 4) Where is HULU support? Also, there should be more integration with other video sites (Fox/ABC/NBC/CBS/CNN/Metacafe, etc.) 5) It's price point should be under $200.

By pizzafiend from Texas on 07/03/2010


Pros:

Quality, Easy To Use, Features/settings, Style/design

Cons:

Features/settings

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We really can't complain about this player. We have owned it since November 2009. We love the extra features especially the ability to play Netflix movies from our instant queue, YouTube, and the fact that we can access our own media from our computers. We have not used the other features yet. We have had some wireless network connection issues with the player, but we're not sure if it's the player or the router. There has been no issues with the wired connection. If there was a way to upgrade the software to allow the player to use additional programs like Pandora that would be even better. I can't imagine it not being purely a software issue in order for it to work and buying a new player just for a couple more features like that just isn't going to happen at the moment. Overall this has been a great player. We haven't run into any issues with discs not working and loading times are certainly longer than DVD, but at the moment that's something that just must be dealt with.

Best of Evils

By Diz from VA on 06/28/2010


Pros:

Plays H.264 Mkv Mp4, Vudu, Features/settings, Networking Works

Cons:

Difficult To Use, Value, Rough Around The Edges

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I wanted a blu-ray player that would play videos from my home network. I also wanted the option of Netflix. The player plays disks almost flawlessly - very rarely will you get an error. The home networking works, but with divx files over your network, audio and video are out of sync. It can read an external drive, but has some problems with lots of files and folders. The Vudu service has been kind of nice upon occasion, too. It's a bit less expensive than renting a movie off of my cable box. YouTube is clunky, but useable. Like I said, not perfect, but at the time (spring 2009) it was the best out there.

Excellent Netflick Player

By Rick from Hedgesville, WV. on 06/24/2010


Pros:

Style/design, Performance, Easy To Use, Quality

Cons:

Doesn't Support Internet Tv, Won't Play Dvd Image Files

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is my first blu-ray player and I was not disappointed. Disks load fast; standard DVD's are up-converted and look every bit as good as a OPPO up-converting player. The hand-held remote signal strength is a bit weak; you need to have a good line-of-sight to get it to work. I have many of my DVD's, CD's, and photos backed up on my home PC and The LG plays them perfectly. To get the best picture quality, however, I ran a ethernet cable (100 Mhz) to the unit rather than use the wireless connection. The unit does not play DVD image files, so you must convert them to .VOB or several other supported formats (I wish it would play image files like some of the competition). I also like the feature that allows automatic software update of the unit.

Cons:

Bottom Line:

I was very impressed with the BD390. It plays Blu-Rays fine. I have it hooked up wirelessly to my internet and computer. So It will update it's own software over the internet and I can use it to show things from my computer on my 60 inch HiDef TV. It is also fun to use it on You Tube. You can search and play just as you can with a computer. I also have Netflix so I can watch Netflix Instantly movies . You have to select the Instant movies with your computer first, but then you can select with BD390 from that list. Haven't found much use for the other Internet movie functions since we already have Netflix and Sattelite Dishnet.

LG550 Blu-ray

By Stripes from Saint Joseph, Michigan on 06/20/2010


Pros:

Easy To Use, Quality, Features/settings

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is my first blu-ray player and I am quite impressed with it. Connection and setup was extremely simple and easy to do. Connected to internet (wired) easily and worked with no problems. Blu-ray movies look superb as expected but mostly I have been watching lots of DVD's. BD550 upconverts them very well. Prior to this I had an upconverting DVD player and the BD550 does just as good a job of playing DVD's as my previous player. My only issue has been finding the correct up and down selection buttons on the remote. Even though those buttons are somewhat angled to make this easier, I seem to have a slight problem intuitively finding them without actually looking. That is probably me more than the remote. Overall, I am very pleased with this unit so far.

Discontinued product

By Tarzan from Undisclosed on 06/19/2010


Cons:

Features/settings, Unrealistic Picture Quality

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Being able to download videostreams from Netflix is a marvel. That part is easy to set up and it's fun to use. On this player, most blu-ray disks play with a non-lifelike visual quality, like there is a thin black line around every small block of color. Overall a decent product. However, the product could be improved if it had a few enhancements like a time-of-day display and clearer instructions on how to choose the best resolution settings. The device turns itself off after only a brief period of non-use, unless it is in the middle of playing a movie. Not bad, but not great.

This is my first blu-ray so I have nothing else to compare to in regards to blu-ray. However, this is a great product. Out of the box I plugged it directly into my router and followed the update instructions. In a matter of minutes the unit logged into the LG update website, found it's new firmware, downloaded and updated itself. Now it sits in the family room and preforms without any glitches being plugged into my 7.1 receiver for audio and my HD TV for video. Threw Avitar blu-ray in for my first viewing and WOW! Don't know why I waited so long.

Good Multi Use Device

By TMGLost from Undisclosed on 06/16/2010


Pros:

Quality, Easy To Use, Features/settings

Cons:

Discontinued

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this in the Fall of 2009 in anticipation of the release of the Lost Season 5 Blu Ray set - needed access to BD-Live for some of the special features. It has delivered on everything I'd chosen it for, including home networking, YouTube and NetFlix Streaming. Only downside is the rather quick discontinuation of the model - no more firmware updates, which would mean I'll never get the Picasa and Accuweather services. Good box that I'll enjoy for a long time to come, but continued support would have been nice.

This is one excellent product. The Blu-Ray player performs very well; it's user-friendly setup is a cinch; and, it provides supurb video output to my LG 47LH40 HDTV.

Outstanding Player

By Draega307 from Marion, IA on 06/16/2010


Pros:

Quality, Easy To Use, Performance, Style/design, Features/settings

Cons:

Is Not Wireless

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Got this player to compliment the new LG TV. Upgrading the firmware took just seconds, love how it syncs with the TV. So easy to use, my 2-yr-old grandson knows that all he needs to do is push the eject, place a dvd in, push the button again and the TV powers on, the com link places the TV input to proper place and within seconds he is watching his show. Picture has been great and it plays flawlessly with no pauses or skips. Only thing I would like to see is the availablity of a wireless device so I don't have to use the ethernet cord.

Just a bit disappointed

By Bonski from Del Rio, TX on 06/15/2010


Pros:

Quality, Easy To Use, Performance

Cons:

No Dlna

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought this blu-ray player because I previously purchased the BD-390 but this time didn't need the wireless connectivity. I didn't do much research on this because I did think that that only difference was that it didn't have wireless. However, it also didn't have dlna access for me to access my media files on the network drive. However, I do enjoy having netflix available and it is a good, reliable player. But if I knew it wasn't dlna compliant, I wouldn't purchased the BD-390.

The Netflix implementation is very basic and offers nothing more than simple access to the Instant Queue. Would have liked to have Pandora support and some other type of video download service. Otherwise, a good player for the price. Just lacking in key features.

I currently own this player and a PS3, and I have to say that the BD370 looks better than the console. Strange, huh? Not really. LG knows what they're doing when it comes to electronics. I just wish I had more money, so that I can buy one for every TV I own. I personally think that LG is the only way to blu-ray...LOL!!!

It even survives drowning!

By notbitmonk from Puerto Rico on 06/15/2010


Pros:

Quality, Features/settings, Style/design, Performance

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About 9 months after I purchased the unit a contractor got my unit wet (water poured into the unit). This happened for several days until we noticed it. The unit was actually dripping water. We let it dry and it continued to work without a problem (that's the 5 stars for quality). Features are on par with others I've seen except that this unit has support for AVCHD. To me, streaming content from YouTube, Netflix, etc. is not a killer. I believe that a dedicated box with MythTV or Mythbuntu is better suited for those tasks and provide a whole lot more features for a lower cost. In that line, since LG uses Free Software in the player, I was anxious to see if the unit supported Ogg/FLAC/Theora but that was not the case (all my music is in lossless FLAC). It would have cost LG nothing to implement such features. A firmware update will be able to do it, so I am hopeful. All the DVDs that I've watched had upconverted beautifully. Ease of use is above average. Menus are easy to navigate and in-movie settings selection were good. I appreciated it even more after comparing it with a friend's Samsung player. When I bought it, the price was average compared with other players but when everything gets thrown in, the value of the player is excellent.

Blu-ray Player that does it all

Cons:

Remote Control

Bottom Line:

Purchased the LG BD-390 6 months ago and have been very pleased with its performance and features. The easy access to Netflix and Vudu have been this player very functional. The playback of both Blu-ray and DVD formats have been flawless with none of the quality issues referred to in other reviews. The remote control is somewhat low end for this type of player but I primarily use my universal remote with my home theater system so the remote is not a major negative. Based on this purchase, my first LG product, I would definitely consider LG for future electronics needs,

Overall am very happy with connectivity and picture/sound quality. Access menus for My Media are difficult to see. Also I have to change the settings between my projector and old television and it resets default to a stretched picture every time I change it to HD output - who would buy a blu-ray player and want the picture stretched out? Get Hulu on there and life would truly be good!

Pros:

Quality, Style/design, Performance, Easy To Use, Features/settings

Cons:

Bottom Line:

I think the pros have been documented through various reviews. Excellent picture quality and best in class menu system. Cons: - the remote is terrible with poor field (angle) and range. - until very recently, the product was plagued with an initial network connectivity issue. After power on or power cycle one had to go through the network connectivity procedure each time before getting any channel that uses the network to work. Disappointing that it took this long for LG to fix the problem. - There is no position memory feature for DVDs. I find this a big feature omission. Even my 7 year old DVD player has this feature.

About 1 year after buying my HDTV I decided to upgrade my DVD player. I researched blu ray players for a couple months and decided on the LG BD 390 because of its wireless connectivity and streaming Netflix. The picture and sound quality from the blu ray discs is amazing enough that my wife asked if I bought new speakers too. The wireless connectivity works very well and self adjusts for network quality. I will definitely buy another LG blu ray player.

Pros:

Performance, Features/settings, Easy To Use, Style/design

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this player in December 2009, and have been very pleased with it. The wireless setup was much easier than I expected, and have yet to have a problem with connectivity. Netflix streaming was the primary reason for choosing this player and it works wonderfully. Also, connecting to my home network was a breeze, and the ability to stream video and music from computers is great. Though it may take a few seconds for discs to load, the playback is very good as well. The only complaint I have is the remote. Advanced functions (zoom, resolution, picture mode, etc.) are all encased in a compartment in the bottom under a sliding cover which is very inconvenient.

BD390 Does it all

By Capn Trips from Undisclosed on 06/15/2010


Pros:

Style/design, Quality, Features/settings, Performance, Easy To Use

Cons:

Lacks Hulu (and Other Streaming Sites) Access

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Nice machine - bought it for the additional internet and network streaming capabilities and these work great (with one small exception I'll detail) A. Blu-Ray discs play - as expected - wonderfully. High quality audio encoding is properly passed to my receiver and 1080p video is superb! My primary reason for getting it was for the network capabilities, which I divide into two separate categories, Internet and Home Network. B. First - internet capabilities. Outstanding! The ability to stream YouTube and Netfilx are phenomenal! There are downsides: (1) EXTREMELY slow to load up Netflix, although once loaded, it's a superb feature; (2) YouTube searches are awkward, and the ability to type is hampered. Should have the ability to type like on a mobile phone keypad; (3) I don't use Pandora or CinemaNow or Vudu so I cannot comment on them; (4) MAJOR SHORTCOMING! It desperately needs the capability to access other streaming websites, like network sites and Hulu. This is the singer most desperately-needed upgrade! C. Home Network - I have a lot of media on my home server and this player accesses almost all forms of media flawlessly! For me, this is the greatest benefit of this machine. Any shared folder on any computer on your home network is easily and intuitively accessible. Music, photos, videos, you name it, this player will stream it to your AV system. The only negative I would note is that one cannot advance or rewind to a specific time mark. One has to use FF or Rew. Overall, I'm very happy with this machine.

Pros:

Features/settings, Easy To Use, Performance, Style/design

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had this player for about 3 months now and am very satisfied with it. I purchased it mainly to instant view from Netflix, and am very happy with my purchase so far. I got this player instead of the next one up because I don't need wireless. It works just fine with my older TV, although it took a while to get the picture corrected (I'm stuck at the very lowest resolution the player can display; anything else results in a double picture). No problems, loads and plays quickly. I only wish that more network content was available, such as Hulu. I have two minor complaints: the Netflix interface doesn't allow you to search for a title directly, rather you can just look thru various lists. The other services have an alpha search option, but not the one I use most. The other irritation I have is that when starting up the picture looks wonky until the player fully loads all setup settings -- shaky, double picture -- but then it's fine once fully on. Style is good, and remote easy to use.

Excellent Usability

Pros:

Style/design, Quality, Performance, Features/settings, Easy To Use

Cons:

Usb Port Location

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased an LD550 HDTV and said to myself my cable couldn't do it justice. So i purchased the BD550 Blu-Ray player by LG. I hooked up the network cable and HDMI cables, with the Blu-ray Avatar, and was like; omg. I was stunned at the performance of the TV and Blu-ray. The clarity was amazing. The ease of use was what caught my attention. With the Simplink, the TV recognized the Blu-ray right away and changed to the HDMI port without me even touching the TV remote. Yes, I love that. I become even lazier, hehe. At any extent the networking capability was great. The other draw back was the usb being in the front of the player. I would perfer the key to be in the a hidden compartment. It doesn't look good having the front bay open down. And it provides opportunity for breaking it if someone bumps into it. Also they should expand the onboard memory so that you can use the BD-Live features out of the box instead of having to use a usb flash drive. But overall this is still a great buy and deal.

This is an excellent entry level BD player as it has a lot of features for the low price.

The BD disk loads much quicker than the Panasonic BD player which I returned after I purchased this LG player. The remote is very easy to use, never even used the manual as I was able to get everything to work within the first 15 minutes.

I have had this blu ray since November 2009, and have yet been able to watch a movie through without it freezing half way through. I have checked several times for the latest updates and updated on a regular basis. The movies we watch always freeze at least once while watching and it takes FOREVER to go through the process of getting it back, because it's frozen. We watch blu rays and dvd's on this player, the picture is good and clear it is just a hastle to watch one and extremely frustrating (especially with a toddler who doesn't understand what happened to his show and wants it back now!)

I picked this LG model because I was looking for a Bluray player with Wireless Connectivity (and Netflix Streaming). This LG model was top rated at CNET and Consumer reports. I was not disappointed at all. The player does all that it claims to do. Bluray and DVD playback is excellent. I have used it for Netflix and Youtube streaming. I have also used it to fetch pictures stored on a home computer. Complaints include the remote which appears cheap and works only if you are directly pointing it towards the player.

The installation takes some doing but with a tech consultant we got it done...well worth the effort.

It's the worst remote we've used! Overall quality of course continues remarkable but these other issues are annoyances that could turn customers off.

THE QUALITY IS GOOD BUT IT COULD BE BETTER YOU CAN FEEL THE B-R CASING MOVE WHEN HOLDING ON HANDS. IT GETS TOO HOT, A COOLING FAN ON THE BACK COULD HELP IT LIVE LONGER. OTHER THAN THAT IT IS A GREAT VALUE.

My first Blu-Ray plaayer

By featherhead57 from Fairfield, CT on 05/03/2010


Pros:

Quality, Easy To Use, Features/settings, Sound Quality, Performance

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I was extremely amazed at the quality and ease of use with my new LG-BD550 Blu-Ray player. I was pleasantly surprised with the ease of installation, and instinctively easy controls on the remote. I gave my DVD to my Grandmother, and my cd player to my son. I don't need them anymore! This machine does it all! The picture quality makes even my 780P flat screen POP with amazing colors, and combined with Dolby sound through a surround sound system, I feel as if I own a personal theater. Thank you for such an excellent multimedia player!

Great Quality for the Money

By zoe from Midwest on 04/30/2010


Pros:

Easy To Use, Performance, Quality

Cons:

More Apps Thru Firmare Updates

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this product because of the independent reviews and I have not been disappointed. I find myself using the streaming video from Netflixs and Vudu a lot more than I thought I would. Which brings me to my only con with this player. I bought this player only about 3 months before the new models came out which have a few more apps like pandora radio and others. I wish more apps could be added to BD390 through firmware updates.

BD 390

By treltif from Detroit, Mi on 04/28/2010


Pros:

Media Server Accessibility, Performance, Quality, Style/design, Easy To Use, Features/settings

Cons:

Remote Control

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The LG BD 390 is an excellent Blu-Ray player. I've been very happy with my choice from the beginning. The biggest surprise was how well it handles external media servers. I've connected both TVersity and the media server that's built into my Linksys router to the BD 390 and it works like a champ! With TVersity, I'm able to stream the stuff that otherwise isn't available in the built-in options (like Hulu, for example), so the limitations of the player and for the most part, negated. In addition, I can set it up to stream my favorite pod-casts, so the player becomes my 'one-stop' for nearly all of my media. Another thing that really impressed me was how it remembers where I stopped playing a DVD or Blu-Ray disk, even if I've removed the disk, played another movie and then re-inserted the original disk! This is beautiful, and it works quite well. For the most part, navigation through the menus and such is pretty good and intuitive. Software updates aren't real intrusive and don't take very long to perform. Upconverting of DVDs is superb - they look amazing; even the ones that are 'shrunk' from 9gb dual layer to 4.7gb single layer. The Blu-Ray of Avatar was breath-taking on this player! My one big beef is with the remote control. It is (in my opinion) very poorly laid out. It's so non-intuitive, that even after nearly 2 months, I constantly have to look at it to figure out which button to press or more frequently, which one I accidentally pressed. Also, as near as I can tell, there is no way to configure the built-in volume control to connect to an A/V receiver - only televisions. Finally, it's missing the ability to frame-step backwards! What's up with that? You can frame forwards, if you wish, but you can't go back one frame at a time. I am hoping that this is a remote control limitation and not a player limitation. I'm considering moving to a programmable remote and hoping I can find a way to make frame-back function. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase. LG has done a nice job of delivering a beautiful product with a nice feature set.

First Blu-Ray

By jlo from Hudson, NC on 04/28/2010


Pros:

Performance, Quality, Features/settings, Style/design, Netflix You Tube Etc, Easy To Use, Wireless Lan

Cons:

Price

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

In short, the player is AWESOME! We bought this in December 2009. It is our first blu-ray and we are astounded. It is easy to setup and use. I bought it for the wireless capabilities, You Tube, and Netflix options. Wasn't a Netflix member, but I am now. Other people use Pandora and other movie sites, but I am more than happy for my first purchase. It was a little pricey, but I'm sure it will come down as technology surely increases. Well worth the price!!

Blu Ray Network Player

Pros:

Performance, Features/settings, Consistancy Dvd & Blu-ray, Quality, Style/design, Easy To Use

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We recently purchased a LG BD 370 network enabled Blu-Ray player. It has been the best electronics purchase in years. We have owned many CD and DVD player/recorders and they always had something that did not live up to our expectations or desires. One of the best things has been that it makes all of standard DVD look and play better! It has made having a HD TV much better. We enjoy being able to use the instant feature on our Neflix account and the YouTube feature is a lot of fun too. If you are looking for a Blu-Ray player or not sure if it is really worth it "" IT IS if you buy and LG with network and up conversion!!!

BD 390 Has it All

By Karl in Las Vegas from Las Vegas, NV on 04/27/2010


Pros:

Quality

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Thank you. Somebody finally got it right. Your BD390 product is sensational! I wanted to expand into direct viewing of Video movies via Netflix and what I got was more than I expected. The integration into Netflix is flawless. I also installed a Wireless N router about 2 weeks before I installed the BD390. The install of the DVD machine was a breeze with the assist facilities in both. The ability to get to my music libraries, my pictures and YouTube was a real bonus. I was up and running within 15 minutes of the hardware install. My wife was skeptical of what I was trying to do and could not comprehend it, now she has asked me to teach it her so she can do it on her own

Pros:

Bottom Line:

I bought this Blu-Ray player because of its ability to play streaming content from Netflix, VUDU, etc. The wireless wasn't so good because of my network, but after setting up a wired network using powerline adapters it works exceptionally well. The quality of streaming HD content is crystal clear!

Great for Geeks

By cburgher from Portland, OR on 04/27/2010


Pros:

Quality, Features/settings, Performance, Easy To Use

Cons:

Error Correction

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

As a digital media junie, this is by far my favorite machine. Compared with other BluRay players I've used, it very quickly loads disks. I haven't used the NetFlix or other similar features. It has played just about everything I've thrown at it. It handles AVI and MKV container formats, MP3 and AAC, etc. The USB port supports both FAT and NTFS formatted drives. As with all players with USB ports, it doesn't support things like iPod or iPhone that require software to interface. The wireless was a bit tricky to configure. It appeared that it would only accept lower case letters for what should have been a hex WEP key. To resolve, I had to change my wifi router to use ASCII characters for the WEP key, then all went well. It is a bit touchy with AVI or MKV files with bad / illegal frames. When it hits the bad frames, it appears to just jump to the next track without trying to error-correct. You can manually get around this by forwarding past the bad frames then playing. I wish it had a better error recovery scheme to automatically skip a few frames retry / resynch. Besides the above minor glitches, this is a great machine.

Great Value

By darb from Greenfield, IN on 04/27/2010


Pros:

Performance, Quality, Features/settings, Easy To Use

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this for viewing movies on my family room set. I wanted to also view pictures stored on the computers on my home network. My initial thoughts were to try the wireless option, but I also thought I would have to eventually run a network cable for acceptable network use. To my surprise the wireless network connection works very well for my wife and I. I am using an N+ router with a directional antenna, so this probably helps with my network speed. The You Tube feature also works quite well and I am able to view videos my son has uploaded. I am extremely satisfied.

Blu's not the only color you'll enjoy...

Pros:

Features/settings, Performance, Easy To Use, Style/design, Quality

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Even though I've not used ALL the features with my new LG BD390 Blu-Ray player, I'm amazed at the 'ease of use' this player brings. Everyone in my family is able to play DVDs and Blu-Rays easily and we've even used the YouTube option. The up-conversion of DVDs we've watched is incredible and when watching Blu-Ray movies or concerts, we are astonded at the clarity, deep blacks and colors of the picture and the surround sound qualities. It feels like the movie/concert is happening right in our living room. After reading about this player and LG LED-LCD 47" HD-tv combo, it was a 'no brainer' to purchase.

Pros:

Cons:

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I'm very happy overall and love the Netflix and Youtube streaming, but I have some complaints. Blueray discs load slowly and the rare disk, like Mad Men Season 1, won't load at all. When you pause a Blueray, if you don't hit play soon enough, it shuts down and takes forever to get back to where you left off. Youtube is awesome, but since there's a USB port, couldn't we use USB keyboards to search?

I am hoping for a firmware update soon to get this added. Other than that, a great player.

The player is good except that the audio is not in sync with the picture. This is most noticable when a person is speaking directly at the screen, and you can see their lips move.

Software Updates on BD390?

By COBRA from Grimes, IA on 04/26/2010


Pros:

Easy To Use, Performance, Style/design, Quality, Features/settings

Cons:

Lack Of Software Updates (live Streaming)

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

1st of all.. I'm very happy with my decision to purchase the BD390.... but no sooner than when I purchased my BD390, the BD570 model comes out.. which is pretty much the same machine, minus the difference in Live Streaming capabilities. Both have Netflix, VUDU, YouTube, and Roxio CinemaN-ow. But... the BD570 also has Pandora, Picasa and AccuWeather... I have gotten automatic driver updates to my BD390 several times, but why can't they make a machine smart enough to receive software updates as well, so the owners of the BD390 can experience all of the Live Streaming capabilities of the BD570? Only other difference I seen was BD570 doesnt have capability for analog 7:1 but who cares, since everything is digital now anyway.

Excellent machine with only one flaw

By Tgetz from Dallas, TX on 04/26/2010


Pros:

Performance, Features/settings, Quality, Easy To Use

Cons:

Needs Better Open Button

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This product hits all the highs--loaded with features and latest streaming, great quality video and audio, WiFi enabled. The only gripe is the eject control. The open/eject button feels "cheap," like it's unsure whether it wants to work or could stop working after a while. A related gripe is that the load tray is not forgiving. You need to be extra careful that the disc is perfectly placed in the tray. I made the mistake of closing when a disk was slightly misaligned, and the tray jammed, trapping the disk half-way out. I expected the tray to automatically reopen when it encountered resistence, but it didn't. I had to physically wrench the disk out, scratching it in the process.

Cons:

Can't Play Video Through Netcasting And Usb

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This Blueray is the best value for your money. I had used BD300 and comparatively, BD390 loads faster, supports Youtube, netcasting, vudu , Cinemax and of course, Netflix the best streaming service available. Quality of the blueray picture is outstanding. It is light in weight hence very easy to move around. Due to smaller dimensions fits perfectly in my TV stand. It has wireless connectivity, so forget about ethernet cables. Netcasting is one great feature to share your pictures and songs located on your PC. Also, it has USB access so you can connect an external harddrive too for pic and songs. Although, a video can only be seen through DVD/Blue ray.

Solid performer

By dtbart from Marengo, IL on 04/26/2010


Pros:

Style/design, Easy To Use, Quality

Cons:

Slow To Display Jpg Photos

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased the BD390 BluRay player in December 2009 to mate with a new LG 47LH90 LED television. I had taken time to read reviews of the current crop of BD players and selected this model because of its wireless capabilities and superior picture. I was not disappointed except for the wireless reception. I am not sure if it was the location of my wireless modem or the BD390 player, but the wireless signal at the receiver was of medium strength and I had trouble downloading. However once I moved my router and directly connected it to the player, all the problems disappeared! It updates its firmware automatically so I don't have any compatibility issues to deal with. The only complaint I have is that it is extremely slow in loading and displaying large resolution JPG photos via the USB port. It takes a long time to render the images. If I plug the same USB stick into my 47LH90 LED TV, the photos pop right up and I can run a slide show without delays. But this is not in any way a deal killer for me, and I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a BD player.

Very good but not a star

By wilco from Bayside, NY on 04/26/2010


Pros:

Quality, Performance, Easy To Use

Cons:

Limited

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I would like to open by saying that the BD390 is a very good unit. I am very pleased with the quality with the following exceptions. On occasion I have experienced video / audio synch problems. Also, the applications that come with it are merely a subset of the larger set available with all newer units. I was hoping the a firmware upgrade would make it compatible with the new versions. But, that has not happened. In particular I would like to see Pandora become available on the BD390. I have had to resort to connecting my laptop to my tv play Pandora. It really annoys me to see every other player out there have it along a a few additional applications. It's funny how all other units advertise "and more" but not the BD 390.

Pros:

Cons:

Frequent Audio Drop Outs

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great Video quality with numerous extra online features. However, this BD player has a problem with frequent audio drop outs that last for 1 to 2 seconds. It will occasionally lose audio sync with the video. The BD movies play flawlessly on two other BD players I own. A search on the web brings up the same issue with others that own this model. I am hoping that LG addresses the problem in a (near) future firmware update.

Features/settings, Easy To Use, Quality

Cons:

Weak Wireless Signal

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is a solid streaming bluray player. Obviously it's received numerous positive reviews from the "experts", which I took into consideration when making this purchase. The player has a lot of functionality and tweak-ability, for those so inclined. The on screen menus are fairly straightforward for making those adjustments. You can be up and running fairly quickly after taking it out of the box. It loads discs relatively quick, which is nice. Picture quality is great and even does a good job upscaling. My only real complaint about the player is the wireless connectivity. One of the main reasons I bought this player was for the wireless N capability. I have a wireless N router and still have problems every now and then getting HD movies to stream in HD from Netflix. My other minor gripe is around the lack of Pandora. I would like to see a software update that includes Pandora especially b/c the new lineup of players offers this capability. Def worth a purchase tho, if you can find one.

I spent a lot of time reading reviews for Blu Ray players before settling on the LG BD390. I am really impressed with its features, especially the ability to use a USB flash drive as an input device. The blu ray is great and upscales my regular DVDs very well. Another great feature is the ability to stream movies directly from Netflix. We never have to worry about there being "nothing to watch"! If you can find one, get it. I'm looking forward to checking out the new LG BD 590!

This is a great blue ray player, the only thing I wish it had was wireless, but that's not a fault of the player but mine for not geting the next one up.

This was a great first blue ray player for me

Pros:

Easy To Use, Style/design

Cons:

Features/settings

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have a couple different LG products and love them, that is one reason I chose the BD390, however I'm not pleased with this unit. Everything is fine until I get to the on line-downloads from my router. Although it worked well the first couple Netflix Movies we downloaded, now trying to watch Netflix is like having a long / blank commercial every 30 seconds. I have even spent the money to hard wire the BD390 to my router with no change in quality or download speed. From what I've seen on-line, I'm not the only one.

Highly Recommend It

By tommyg from Levittown, PA on 04/15/2010


Pros:

Style/design, Features/settings, Quality, Performance, Easy To Use

Cons:

Limited Universal Capability, No Backlight

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I truly enjoy my Blu-ray player, works great, and is very easy to use. I especially like the NetFlix streaming capability. My only issue with this product is the remote. Very disappointing in comparison to their competition. You need to add a backlight and give it more universal capabilities (the ability to interact with a stereo receiver). For what I paid for this product at the time, I can't get over how cheaply made the remote is. Other than that I would highly recommend the BD390 or its later models.

Hands down the best

By HouRay from Houston, TX on 04/15/2010


Pros:

Quality, Easy To Use, Performance, Style/design, Features/settings

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I did research and compare reviews before deciding on this model and felt I had at least done my homework for sure. I have been more than happy with this unit. Not only the quality of BluRay DVD picture but the streaming capabilities from Netflix and access to my centralized online movie library from a local network connection was an added bonus. I also have an LG NAS unit, on which I store digital music and movies which the BluRay player can access and play with higher resolution than my AppleTV and it took me all of 30 seconds to configure a name and password to hit the networked share. Too awesome - movies load faster than any of my friend's BluRay players. Menu is very intuitive and easy to use. It's stable and doesn't hang, or flake out like many others. I have very high expectations and I'm happy to say the LG BD390 far exceeded what I expected in quality, ease of use, features, and value. Well done LG! Keep it up !!!

Excellent, but could be better

By GTG from New Hamphire on 04/15/2010


Pros:

Quality, Performance

Cons:

Remote

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We've been using the BD 390 for the past six months and overall we're very impressed. Video and audio quality are excellent, but remote isn't great and the information display options seem lacking. For instance when paused I don't see a way to tell how far into a movie I am, or how far to go. Relatively minor quibbles, it does the important things right and I may get a second LG Blu ray player for the office.

Okay BD Player

By stewball from San Francisco, CA on 04/15/2010


Pros:

Easy To Use, Wifi, Netflix Enabled, Performance

Cons:

Features/settings, Remote Control

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I chose this unit over competing devices primarily for the performance, WiFi and Netflix capability. Basic Features of this BD player are mostly satisfactory. The WiFi connection is excellent and was easily configured. Startup time is very good. I also enjoy the Netflix feature which functions very well. However, if a BD program is stopped and unit shut off, it doesn't remember the place it left off so must be started over - that should be a more basic feature and is very inconvenient. For the hefty extra cost of adding WiFi, I would also have liked some additional features above the basic set. I was disappointed with the remote control. It is too sensitive to direction to my liking- it must be pointed right at the target with little leeway. The sliding cover over the TV control buttons is kind of unnecessary and flimsy and subject to breakage. Anyway, why cover up buttons that you use all the time (Mute, Volume, Input)? They should be available for ease of access. Playing DVDs yields a good quality upconverted picture but the audio is seems to be delayed enough to make it uncomfortable to watch - a reason to keep my old DVD player around a while longer.

Must have more than one

By Roger from Undisclosed on 04/15/2010


Pros:

Style/design, Features/settings, Quality, Performance, Easy To Use

Cons:

No Lighted Remote

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My first BD390 was exactly what I was looking for, yet hard to find. Once hooked to my home entertainment system, 65 inch Plasma, and WIFI access point which was a snap with Comcast Broadband service, provided excellant on demand service from Netflix, Cinima Now, VUDU, and other features. I was so pleased, I had to find out if my service from Comcast would support multiple BD390's in my home. The Master BR beckoned for another BD390 to enjoy with our 50 inch Plasma at the foot of the bed. So I searched and found another, hooked it into my home WIFI network and gave Netflix a real test. I started a movie on demand in the family room, went upstairs and started the same movie. I wanted to see if I could stream 2 of the same movies from Netflix at the same time and see if I hade any digital breakup. NOPE, everything works perfect, and the LG BD390's perform excellant along with the WIFI network. This is awesome. I have 5 computers, a satellite radio, and 2 BD390, a I-touch all running without a hitch. LIFE's GOOD!

Being able to watch YouTube and Netflix through this player is a huge bonus.

LG BD390

By Mikerla from Central Louisiana on 04/15/2010


Pros:

Performance, Easy To Use, Style/design, Quality, Features/settings

Cons:

No Fast Forward On Network Media, Use Internal Memory For Buffering Streaming Video

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Extremely easy to set up. We love the Youtube feature. One thing I wish they would add is the ability to fast forward through media that is on the network. I record shows on my PC that I would like to watch on this player and would like to skip the commercials. Also if they would use the internal memory to buffer the VUDU streaming to make up for a slow network connection - that would be extremely appreciated - maybe a future firmware release? Overall excellent picture quality in 1080P - I would recommend this player to anyone.

Pros:

Easy To Use, Features/settings, Style/design, Quality, Performance

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this unit as a package with a 55LE5400 lcd tv. I only own 1 blueray movie and it looks amazing on the tv. When I connected this player to my home network and powered it up, it connected to the web and offered to download and install some firmware updates. Thats very cool since the last time I did that with another brand, I had to compine a cd and install it with some special button press combo. Its dead simple to use with only two buttons, on/off and play on the unit. The remote offers more options I have not used yet. Nice and thin profile that fits in a narrow shelf space. Conclusion: recomended as a good basic br disk unit.

Bd390

Pros:

Quality, Easy To Use, Performance

Cons:

No Pandora, Features/settings, Must Renew Dynamic Ip

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have owned this unit for a couple of months now and am very pleased with it. I picked this model because of its wireless internet capability. However my ISP is not able to provide sufficient speed to allow HD video to be streamed. I went wired with this model to try to improve streaming performance. None of this can be blamed on the LG, but I do wish the BD 390 had Pandora capability. I use netflix and hopefully Pandora can be added through an update. But now that the new models are out with Pandora, I may be out of luck. The only other issue I have had with the LG is that quite often when starting to stream video I have to renew the dynamic IP. Not a big deal but annoying

Pros:

Easy To Use, Plays Avchd Format, Netflix Fun, Features/settings, Quality, No Gremlins..yet, Performance, Style/design

Cons:

Wi-fi Sounds Cooler Then It Works

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I know people people (like my brother) who buy electronics as if they were produce, never satisfied very long. My wife and I on the other hand represent those people who keep electronics long after they go out of fashion. I purchased this blu-ray player to play our AVCHD formatted dvds, from our camera which it does well. I also chose this player because of Cnets high praise and lack of horror stories from others..or even negative comments. This camera has quick load time and even has wi-fi. Well, wi-fi in theory anyway. It's a great machine and I feel justified in my decision I made. Wi-fi didn't work for us, had to use the cable...but cable gives you better quality anyway. So I would buy again.

Pros:

Style/design, Performance, Quality, Features/settings, Easy To Use

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Had to search far and wide to find this player. Paid a hefty price but needed something with wi-fi and Netflix in one unit. The player is great, ease of use, load time, picture quality, up-conversion and the many adjustable features from picture size to sound. I will say the remote is fairly average but it does everything needed. The one complaint I do have is the wi-fi connectivity. While it works, it drops off once in a while and takes a bit of time to reset. Not a major issue and overall I highly recommend this player.

Pros:

Features/settings, Performance, Quality, Easy To Use, Style/design

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought the Blue Ray DVD Player because of the salesman. He showed me all of the features, and explained how many things I can do with this BR DVD, along with the price comparision to other brands that did not have the features this LG had, so I was sold, and I bought the BR DVD Player, before I bought the LCD TV. My son thought that was odd. But, I had my reasons. In any event, I ended up buying both, and the simplicity of function is great as well as how well it functions. This is really a great product and it looks nice also. I would recommend LG to everyone I know and don't know! It even makes the room look larger and cleaner.

I have not tried the wireless option. i bought this player because it had the widest range of codecs [video] that would play, however one con would be it does not play WMV files. Other than that its awesome. I see that it is now being discontinued, thats a surpise...It has good price, excellent features, great value, looks good, ok it needs a better remote. I'm now looking for a new blu ray player for the bedroom.

Took the DVD player out of the box and within 15 minutes we were watching a movie. Some have reported the update download time was long. Not with me. Update was smooth and quick. The picture is amazingly clear and crisp. I look forward to many years of satisfied service.

It's a shame this product ...

It's a shame this product has been discontinued. I think it was more than expected for the price. The remote is a little cheesy, but overall doesn't affect the performance of the product.

Works perfectly

By jgrill from Pennsylvania on 03/09/2010


Pros:

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Super easy to use and nice looking. The picture and sound quality is excellent. I've been really enjoying Netflix. I was able to have this up and running and watching netflix and youtube in less than 20 minutes, including wiring it up and signing up for Netflix. I've played quite a few blueray disks and have had no problems at all - works perfectly.

BD390

Bottom Line:

Very happy with with this player except for very weak wireless reception. Despite adequate signal for computer functioning, I had to hardwire the BD390 in order to access the network reliably. Unsure if this problem is addressed with the BD590

1DVD and it died

By Anonymous from Undisclosed on 02/28/2010


Pros:

Features/settings, Easy To Use

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Got it set up and streamed one video from Netflix. Then a week later played a DVD. Later that day tried to play another and the console would not boot. Now I have to send it in and get it replaced. What a piece of JUNK!

Quite a Surprise

By TG from Pottstown, PA on 02/27/2010


Pros:

Performance, Quality, Easy To Use, Style/design, Features/settings

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

What a surprise I got when I first accessed the BD390 on my WIFI network. The unit instantly joined the wireless network (after giving it the SSID and the WPA security code) and displayed all the shared files on all three of my computers. Movies that I previously could only watch by burning a DVD were now available immediatelly after download in their original .avi format. The movies play seamlessly on my TV and the picture and sound qualities are excellent. Because I'm a Netflix member, I can also get streamed movies from them instantly on my TV via the BD390. This player is so full of features that I rarely use it to play a DVD. I have tested it though, and it performs beautifully. I am very pleased with the BD390 and can't say enough good things about it. I would heartily recommend it to anyone who wants to add to the enjoyment of their TV and home WIFI network.

Plays Blu-Rays, plays DVDs, plays Netflix, plays YouTube. What else could you ask for? One thing, an update from Netflix to browse on the device for new movies. Thats all. Thats not LG, thats Netflix. So this is perfect. So easy my children use it (5yrs and 8yrs old).

Needs better remote

By bigshmoo from Vancouver, WA on 02/12/2010


Pros:

Performance, Features/settings, Quality, Easy To Use

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Everything about this player is amazing except for the remote. For being such a high quality piece of equipment LG should have invested a little bit more in a better remote. This however is really just a minor thing. I love being able to stream media from my computer and the internet. I really feel that this one piece of equipment has changed my home theater more than anything else, barring the TV.
