Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality for budget price Bought this within a day of purchasing the LG 3D television. Great features for a budget price! The data from the player going to the television is excellent and produces a great viewing experience and sound.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LG BP520 Slim stylish design, packed full of features (altough im yet to use most of them) Easy to use, easy to set up. This is my first Bluray player and so far it's been perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality viewing easy to use, quality picture, although the system is a smart DVD player its let down by the fact that to use it as a smart system ie film streaming etc you need to puchase an additional dongle which cost £45 plus depending where you buy it, until i purchasd a smart player I had little to no understanding how the smart system worked so my advice, make sure you ask if its internet ready or you could be dissapointed. I was attracted to this system mainly because Currys price matched it giving me a reasonable discount and we already own an LG TV which is a good quality TV plus I knew the two systems would work well together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great bit of kit bought this dvd player as a cheap way into smart tv boy was i wrong its so good we had to go out and buy a new tv to compliment it ,the dvd plays superb 3d, apps were a bit limited but opened up a whole new world on the tv, we've connected up an 1.5 tb hard drive to the dvd, tv would not "talk" with it but the dvd spot on better than the Samsung you don't have to buy expensive 3d glasses ,simply great
