Very easy to use
This is excellent value for money when you compare its features with other similar products. I have found it incredibly easy to use its main functions even without consulting the instructions.. Would I recommend it? Definitely. Would I buy another? Definitely.
It looks very nice and appears well made

Good value but not easy to use
This HD dual channel hard disc reorder + Blu-ray + WiFi includes a good set of capabilities, but it looks like the software really has not been able to exploit the hardware in a particularly useful way.
The WiFi part really seems quite unuseable - I was hoping to be able to use apps like i-player, but they either don't exist or don't work.
The hard disk handling is a bit clunky, for example you cannot delete recordings while another one is going on.
The TV guide is not that friendly either, there does not seem any way to quickly jump to a channel, you just have to keep pressing the up and down keys.
The software does not generally remember where you were while watching a recording, so if you want to re-start viewing a program you may need to fast forward a long way. Also, beware of the remote control fast forward button, if you accidentally press the skip to next button (very close), then you're back to fast forwarding all over again!
Overall, the hardware seems really good value and has great potential - pity about the software.

Good sound quality
Good all round piece of equipment that enhances our 3D LG television. My only gripe is that it needed to be connected via an optical cable, which wasnt supplied and LG didnt specify this, however, once connected, it worked a treat.
