Worst piece of electronic equipment I ever bought.
This blu-ray player is awful. The only reason I gave it a 2-star overall rating is because it DOES actually play the DVD's we put in it. My main problem is that it is slow in everything that it does and half the time, it doesn't read that there is a disc in there.

Integrates well with my LG TV
I really like the SimpLink functionality that automatically switches the input on my TV to the Blu-Ray input when the BR unit is turned on. Only downside is that it takes some discs a while to load up. Not sure if this inherent to Blu-Ray or just this unit. Also, I've disabled network access because I don't care for BDlive functionality, and I really wouldn't miss the BDLive nag screen that pops on EVERY BR disc that tries to connect to the internet.

I couldn't possibly hate this product more....
I couldn't possibly hate this product more if it called me names every time I turned it on.
The only redeeming feature of this blueray player is that it's light-weight.
>.) The remote feels cheap.
>.) The player doesn't register input from the remote unless the remote is pointed [directly] at it.
>.) The virtual keyboard is cumbersome to navigate, and very slow and erratic in responding.
>.) The player only reads discs about half the time, and asks me to choose between DVD and USB sources, even if there's no USB connected.
>.) Reading discs takes a very, very long time. Sometimes up to a minute.
>.) The OS on the player wouldn't acquire a dynamic IP from the router, and static IP settings would revert to all "0's" after saving/applying them.
>.) The Wireless USB dongle worked just fine on my laptop; windows 7 recognized it right away and downloaded drivers without any hassle. So the network settings problem definitely resides with the player itself.
>.) Speaking of the Wireless USB adapter, despite it's good functionality, it measures about 2.5 inches long, and looks really stupid sticking out from the front of the player.
I wouldn't recommend this product to someone a hate.
