What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cannot unlock region/area code I've always used lg DVD players and this is the first time I have not been able to unlock the region capabilities. I have an abundance of legitimate dvd's from traveling, also purchased from ebay and I cannot play them, it's useless and frustrating, a complete and utter waste of money. I should've just kept my old lg player but I needed Bly-ray and the salesperson at jb hi in Parramatta said "don't worry, the regions can be unlocked". Lesson learnt, triple check your facts before purchasing LG players.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Relatively Priced Bluray Player Well its not those internet "smart" Blu-ray players but it is relatively priced which is very affordable. Not 3D or anything but plays all my Blurays and most DVD's without any problems. Design is simple and small where I can fit in my TV Table. If you want to watch High Quality HD Blurays and don't need the cool features of other Bluray Players, you should get this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Top product, what if no wifi or wlan Purchased product, required software upgrade after 5 uses. After several failed attempts, eventually used manual cd. Since then blu ray and cd work however no dvd.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware of region codes As a BD player - no problems. As a DVD player - lots of problems. I've been using an LG DVD player for years, which is region unlocked - so I never thought to check when I bought the BD550, to see if it would play all my British and American DVDs. It won't, and there is no simple way of unlocking it. Okay, fine, those are the rules. BUT... it also won't play multi-region DVDs that are legitimately coded for regions 2 and 4 (BBC discs sold through the ABC shops), although my other region 4 disc player has no problems with them. The fact that it frequently can't recognise discs at all when they're first loaded (but switch it off and aback on again, and it works fine) is just the icing on the cake. I'll be passing this one one through Freecycle and checking the next BD player more carefully before I buy.
