5 out of 5 eggsDelighted

Pros: It does really great upscaling of standard DVDs to 1080p. I'm blown away by the quality of this player. Streaming comes through with excellent quality.

Cons: The remote control could provide more convenient control of video playback.

Other Thoughts: I had to set the HDMI audio out to pass-though and spdif to pcm in order to get dolby digital 5.1 to pass through to the coaxial audio out from dvd playback. This seems backwards from what it should be.

3 out of 5 eggsGood player, weak mkv support

Pros: Wireless networking is a breeze to set up, no connection problems with wireless N on my end. It DOES seem to have a lousy range (no external antenna), as my laptop can pick up far more networks. But, it connects to my own network (right upstairs) easily, and it's fast. No trouble streaming either my shared files or over the internet.

Sharing media is easy. I just shared my files (win xp pro sp3) and the player found the folders immediately. No need for Nero Bloatware.

Upscaled DVDs look awesome; way better than on a normal player.

mp3s play without trouble, although a shuffle feature that can span directories would be nice. Also needs the ability to use playlist files.

Video files - when they play correctly (see below) - are awesome (if they are good quality). BD rips look perfect! Multiple audio tracks ARE supported, but they take a little time to switch back and forth.

Price was decent - I saw it on only 2 other websites a little cheaper, but it wasn't in stock

Cons: JPG display is sloooooooooow.

OK, I see a lot of reviews saying that this player will handle any mkv file they can throw at it. They are not throwing enough mkv files at it.

There is no support for the .ogm container, and also no support for ogg (vorbis) audio. It won't even play a video if it's got vorbis audio!

Chapter stops in mkv and mp4 files are not supported, so far as I can tell.

Subtitles are hit or miss. Here's what I found upon experimentation:

Subs in mkv files (such as advanced substation alpha files) DO NOT WORK.

Subs in mp4 files work, but cannot be turned off.

External sub files work (such as srt files - MUST have same filename as the video), and can be turned on/off. One file had no black border around the text - very hard to read! This is probably related to the sub file itself (although it looks fine on my PC), but there is no way to change the subtitle appearance through the player.

Other Thoughts: I'm ashamed to admit...I bought a BD player and I have no BD discs to test yet! I've tested almost every other feature, except BluRay!

This would be 5 eggs, except for my file format trouble. If this player's claim to fame is that it can play anything you can throw at it, it falls short. Flaky subtitles and no chapters stops...I mean, why even have mkv support if you don't support EVERYTHING THAT MAKES MKV COOL?! Here's hopin' for a firmware update.

1 out of 5 eggsDid not work outside of box

Pros: seemed really cool

Cons: did not work outside of box, received error message "please wait", trouble shooted with LG, they could not resolve problem, recommended I return the unit for service. I'm going to try and arrange return with newegg and purchase a different unit.

5 out of 5 eggsBEST Blue-Ray on the market Bar-None!!

Pros: This is by far the best individual stand alone Blue-Ray Player on the market right now. I know LG is coming out with a 3-D version sometime this spring, but the wi-fi with Netflix, 1 gb storage, and usb flash drive port makes this a must if you don't want to go the playstation route.

Cons: The remote is not that impressive.

Other Thoughts: Simply put: the pros tower over the cons. If you don't want to go the playstation route this is the Blu-Ray player you should get.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Player!!

Pros: This player is amazing. Great price too...I got during the Black Friday sale (was about $250 I think) and that was a great deal for this.

Plays EVERYTHING! This plays every video format I can throw at it. I have a lot of mkv (HD) video files on an external hard drive. I just plug the drive into the USB port and it sees all the videos. Select one and it plays flawlessly! True HD quality.

The wireless-N connection! Connected instantly to my wireless-N network at home and I can get streaming movies at 300mbps! Great companion for watching netflix movies.

Easily connected to my netflix account and let me watch any movie in my instant queue. The streaming HD selections are great, the non-HD ones are ok (but thats netflix's fault).

Cons: None really. But if I had to come up with something, I'd say the 2 buttons on the front of the device should be switched. The disc tray is on the left of the machine, and the button to eject it is all the way on the right side. The power button is on the left (right next to the drive tray). That seems kinda backwards. Easy to accidentally hit the power button instead of the eject button since you instinctively think the eject button is the one right next to the tray...not on the complete opposite side of the machine.

Other Thoughts: Get it. Best blu-ray player currently on the market. And I shopped around a lot.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent product

Pros: Video quality is excellent - Blueray discs load quickly - Netflix steaming is easy to set up and works flawlessly - Easy to set up media streaming from my PC.

I'm very happy with the purchase.

Cons: Not so great streaming music from a PC. It works just fine but lacks the ability to shuffle songs. Also, while watching a video, if you accidentally press next track rather than fast forward, it will queue up the next movie without confirmation.

Other Thoughts: I'm using a wired connection so I can't speak to the reliability, quality or ease of setup of its wireless features.

For PC streaming, I tried the included Nero Home Essentials and it worked just fine. It does what it's supposed to do. However, I'm now using Windows Media Player 11 (WinXP) instead. It also works as intended with this product.

5 out of 5 eggsSweet

Pros: I like!!! I thought maybe I'd have to still put together a HTPC, but with this, I can just link it to my NAS or even the other PC's in the house and pull videos right from them... video jukebox with a remote.

And the picture?? Excellent on the 55inch LG 240Mhz LED big screen. Makes movie night something to look forward to!! And an excuse to keep the girls and their friends safe where I can see them!

Wireless has been without any problems, but....

Cons: It would have been nice to put a dual band radio in so you could have the 2.4 and 5ghz freqs available. (As a solution, I plan on linking two Linksys WRT610N dual band wireless routers running DD-WRT, one as an AP, and the other as a bridge to wired clients (the BD player, and my receiver, and my direct tv dvr), should be sweet when all done).

Other Thoughts: I don't think you can go wrong with this unit... keep an eye out for sales and snatch one up when the price is right.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate to earlier review

Pros: Plays my mp4 video from Windows Home Server, powers off after 5 minutes of non-use

Cons: slow to boot up, weird placement of power and eject button (and they seem backwards...eject should have been placed over the drive tray and the power on the otherside); unfortunately wireless is only on the 2.4GHz frequency (which is okay if you live in house and don't have many 2.4GHz devices operating at the same time as the player, ie. telephones, microwaves, dishwashers, clothes dryers, florescent lighting, iphones)

Other Thoughts: Any reviews that say this is the best blu-ray player available...believe it. I'm thrilled with the network features and when my network is wonky I can use the usb. obviously blu-ray disk movies are rendered perfectly. Great buy even at $300.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat player, when it works

Pros: Fantastic quality video and audio, when it works. As others have said, plays just about any file you can throw at it. Excellent wireless range. Quickly loads BDs.

Cons: The unit has a large footprint, looks like an '80s VCR player. Goofy engrish-filled user interface, clumsy input controls, spotty wireless service (range is excellent, but the unit will randomly drop connection, regardless of having quality network components). The largest issue, and this may be a fault of BD more than the player, is that I've found approx 1 in 6 brand new BD discs will not play on the unit, regardless of firmware. It's frustrating. You expect things to work when you spend this kind of money.

Other Thoughts: For the money, I expected better software. Strictly as a BD player, you're better off with a PS3. It might make sense if you need to play boutique file formats.

4 out of 5 eggsOutstanding Blu-Ray Player

Pros: Quick loading, plays every disc I've thrown at it, company stays on top of firmware, easy setup, fairly quick bootup, stays cool and quiet, plays netflix and vudu, can connect to home network and play my xvid files

Cons: The wireless is horrible. No external antenna. Can only do wireless N on the 2.4GHZ band not 5GHZ. But on the upside it does have an Ethernet jack. The netflix streaming portion the audio gets out of sync despite re buffering. That could be the lack of wireless capabilities causing that though.

Other Thoughts: Solid player otherwise. I plan on getting a wireless bridge so that way I can stream HD without issues.
