Poor product When trying to fast forward or rewind a recorded program it always skips a few minutes. For example if you fast forward to 10 minutes , press play it will skip to 15 minutes. This is so frustrating. Not to mention how slow the remote is to respond 13 January 2015
Appalling, do not buy My old TV, new TV, new sound-bar, and computer monitor, are all LG. I like the brand, I've had nothing but good experiences until now. I'm very disappointed in this product, and I'm surprised about it. It is the cheapest-quality thing I've ever had - well below the quality of some brandless things I've owned. Hardware quality: It has a really loud whine, very high-pitched whenever it's on, I can hear it from the other room and it's really unpleasant. I mean *really* unpleasant, or I wouldn't be wasting words on it here. It messes up nearby Bluetooth connections, I assume it's leaking RF. I thought that there was something wrong with my other equipment until I unplugged this thing. Everything fine. Plug it back in - Bluetooth dies. Firmware issues: Playing a blu-ray disk requires going to "Home" then "Video" then "BluRay" and then selecting that. I actually couldn't figure it out at first. The UI has a lot of serious problems, this is modern functionality in a decade-old system. If you leave the BluRay in a menu, or the movie paused for a few minutes, it dumps you out of the movie entirely - you have to reopen the disk and wait for it to start up again. There's no setting for this. There are no meaningful settings for anything. Broken functionality: 3D is buggy. It flicks to 2D when you do anything that displays anything on screen (when you first hit play, if you pause or rewind or skip), then back after an irritating delay, ...but... Sometimes it doesn't flick to 2D, but then the movie is stuck in 2D when you resume. The first time this happened, pausing and un-pausing a couple of times seemed to fix it. The other time I stopped the disk completely to get 3D back. I found out how to check for a firware update and it said that it was already up to date. 1 January 2015
Worst recorder I purchased this in May 2014, it is the most useless recorder I have ever had. It is going down to the repair shop tomorrow, and with a bit of luck they will tell me that it is useless, then I will get another one that actually works. Keeps coming up, invalid service, then when it does decide to record, says it is overlapping another show, when it is on the same station. I have always been happy with LG products until now. 20 November 2014
Not happy, Worse LG Appliance Owned I have the LG 3D TV as well as a LG Surround sound. Bought this to compliment my home entertainment needs to play blu ray and to record. Not happy. Im glad I got $101.00 knocked off it when I purchased it 2 months ago had my way id take it back for a full refund. worse LG appliance ever owned. Set up was easy for me but takes forever for a blu ray to load to only come up with error or saying software needs updating. yet again I need Ethernet cable internet connection which I don't have to update the software. if LG could kindly do a software update on the unit I may give it 2 stars. NOT happy this model should never had been released. 10 November 2014
Doesn't even play DVDs This is the worst and most frustrating device I have ever bought. After 10 months of battling it I give up. 80% of discs claim a disc error. Very slow to respond to anything. Turns itself off after recording and then doesn't record any other programs. I hate it and it hates me. 30 August 2014
