5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Does everything i need.
Firmware update available.
The nero software lets you stream content from you PC to it and it works pretty good.
Allows subtitles if you have a .SRT file with the movie.
Youtube app works pretty good.
netflix app works pretty good.
no issues with WI-FI or LAN port.

Cons: Gets hot, i added a notebook fan USB cooler under it and also added a powered USB hub and it stays cold and doesn't rid of my USB port for the external HDD.
The remote is tiny.
Load times from nero server take awhile over wifi, but seem faster from LAN port.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not work

Pros: None

Cons: 1) WiFi sensitivity is so low that it is useless. 2) It can be connected to network by wire and other network devices(PCs running W7) can be logged on from this device(SP520) BUT the shared folders cannot be opened and an error message is returned. I called the vendor(LG) twice and got two different suggestions but none worked. I searched the Internet and found I am not the only one who has this problem.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: None so far.

Cons: Didn't work

Other Thoughts: Bought one of these because I needed it to do 3 things I could not find in other players- two video streaming apps & ability to play .avi files from my external hard drive. Other players couldn't do all 3 or cost too much. Paid for expedited shipping and the thing didn't even work straight out of the box. I thank the retailer for recognizing this and they allowed me to send it back for free and are sending me another one. I'm not hopeful though. this would be well worth the money if it actually worked.
