Just What I Wanted....
Bought this product 9 months ago and couldn't be happier, plays Blu-ray & DVD flawlessly. 3D Blu-ray is awesome. Have used the HDD to record digital TV and couldn't be happier my programs are always there and with the unit networked to my home gateway i can watch my recorded programs on my bedroom's LG smart TV if i like. Because it is networked firmware updates are not an issue.
The only negative i have for this unit is that it is not multi-region, I have still had to keep my Sony multi-region Blu-ray to watch my overseas Blu-rays and DVD's. It would be great if LG brought out a multi-region model, I'd definitely BUY IT.....

I purchase the player on the 17th May, it kept seizing up whilst playing back, Southern Cross and affiliates. Missed the V8s on Sunday. Took it back to H/N, seems it needed a firmware up date. Took it to a technician. He did the update overnight. Received it back this arvo. Will try it tonight. Not happy purchasing a dud player, with an update requirement, that H/N knew about. LG should have sent out the firmware update, so not to cause this inconvenience..

My husband purchased this in the boxing day sales (26th December 2012) Within 25 days it wasn't working properly. The player would turn itself off when watching a DVD.
We took it back to the store we purchased it from and they told us to take it home and call LG. LG recommend an update - this DIDN"T work.
Next step was to take it to a electronic place to get fixed - This took 3 weeks - Problem seemed to be fixed with new parts.
2 months after being to the electronic place the problem reappeared. After calling LG to inform them the told us to take it back to the electronic place AGAIN.
Having this product has been a huge inconvenience to us. I would never buy an LG product again... The support you receive from the company (LG) is terrible.
I feel like the player has spent more time being repaired then it has at our home.
