What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Reliability of Blu-ray playing is an issue for me. I fully agree with all the good things said about this systems sound capabilities but, I am now on my 2nd, replacement, yes, I am using BH9540TW No. 3. The first unit ran for about 6 weeks before it refused to play any more Blu-ray discs followed a couple of days later with a failure on the DVD side. I spoke to LG's support engineer and he agreed that it was the optical pickup unit and he would have their service agents visit to replace it. The engineer appeared a few days later with a motherboard, which I told him would not fix the problem but he insisted on changing it. The unit was still exhibiting the same fault. He got in touch with his company who then ordered the correct part. One week later an engineer attended and admitted that he knew nothing about this type of kit and then proceeded to completely screw it up. I was then supplied with a replacement which I unpacked and set up. Then, as I switched it on, there was a very loud electric crack followed by nothing. A few days later my 2nd replacement arrived but without the Wi-Fi card for the rear speakers. I contacted LG and it took almost 3 weeks for it to arrive, which meant that I was having to run the system as a stereo. However, once the Wi-Fi card was fitted the unit performed very well and I was both relieved and happy that my troubles were finally over. Sadly, I was wrong. For the past 2 weeks the 2nd replacement system has been suffering the same problem as with BH9540TW No 1, no Blu-ray or DVD. I have now been without the system for yet another 2 weeks and still no advice from the repair agents as to when it will be fixed. I have made it known that if it goes wrong once more then they can collect it. When working it is superb but to date it has only worked half of the time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Regret It's a great system at a good price, however the head unit failed first time I got it and had it swapped. An outdated interface is one thing but reliability is not negotiable. Turning the unit on 8/10 just hangs, you have to power down at the power point and turn it on again and hope it works this time or the next. The second biggest pet peeve is mirror cast fails to work with most other equipment i.e. smart phone, tablet etc, I've dried both android and iOS with this unit and the one at HVN Store with other devices, always without fail does not work. Mirror cast is essential saving having to buy a chrome cast etc so you'd expect it to work. No software update to mitigate any of these software issues either, I check regurlarly and have had this product for a year now. Only good thing is netflixworks and the sound is amazing. The reliability in turning on and no mirror cast is unforgiveable. TV, washers and fridge LG so are great. Software is not their area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from truly impressive! Have used it for 2 months now. I bought it in HN and use it in my bedroom. I have a high end Yamaha seperates system, but for its price this LG is an overachiever. The quality of the surround sound is astonishing even when decoding stereo signals. The top firing speakers are not a gimmick and really produce immersive sound. I honestly can't find any cons for this system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Easy to setup, great sounds. No problem with the unit at all. Only issue I had was trying to buy one.. But glad I managed to get one now. Netflix work great on the unit. Love the idea of the wireless rear speakers and most importantly easy to drive the thing and the family loves it. Huge improvement and am very happy with the unit so far. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Excellent product. Netflix plays over wi-fi on HD flawlessly. Played all my video files over local network (DLNA) so far. Upward firing speaks sound brilliant especially with aerial audio effects. Great online content. 3D effect work great with movies/songs. Subwoofer is a bit of a let down - I have seen some LG subs that were manufactured 10 years ago were huge and bigger bass. Nevertheless, with correct speaker volumes and positioning, managed to get it up to par thanks to 1460 W output power.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good, bur one problem! Great sounding and looking system, but i`ve been having a problem with the sound cutting out for a fraction of a second randomly when watching Blu ray`s or DVD`s. Thought it was the player so Harvey Norman exchanged it and the box that powers the wireless speakers. Still having the problem and looks like others on here have experienced it also. I think it`s something to do with the wireless function as i`m pretty sure it is only happening from the rear speakers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great with one Minor frustrating drawback (MP4) Pros: * Amazing Specs. * Great Sound features. * Reproduces stereo to all speakers which is nice. I heard it was very difficult to assemble even by the experts but I found it pretty straight forward and the wireless rear is speakers is so convenient. The instructions however seemed to be separate pages for separate languages but it was all one continual instruction manual not made clear, so I assembled without until I mixed the rear speaker wires with the front. Easy fix but just that the manual would be more practical. Cons: * Returned first Blu Ray player unit as the HDMI 2 port was not working and got it swapped by HVN which was easy through them. * Say's can play MP4 but will NOT via USB. I have MP4 movie with 5.1 channels I cannot play through it and it's the biggest frustration at the moment. * Speakers cut out now and then oddly, not sure if it's speakers fault or video stream from PC to stereo input. * Not necessarily good to couple the HTS with and LG TV as the HTS remote works for some TV features but not all of it so you find yourself juggling two remotes because of accidentally pressing say INPUT on the HTS affecting the TV but can't cancel it with the same remote. * The stands for the speakers are plastic and not as I had imagine slick chrome slim necks, but that's my own fault, it's what I saw in the images. So in case you do also. OVERALL. For the price getting a 9.1 ch speaker (rarely used) the build and sound, coupled with easy features is nice. Would be flawless if the player did as advertise and play media i.e. MP4. Still looking for a solution.
