Rated 2 out of 5 by Justice Great Blu Ray, LOUSY internet connectivity
We bought this machine along with an LG television a few years ago. At first it worked great, but then it started turning itself off while we would be watching a program (both DVD/Blu Ray and Netflix) For the past few months it has been sporadically allowing us to watch Netflix. Now it will not connect to Netflix AT ALL! A screen comes up telling us to check our internet and Netflix connections. We checked both and they are fine. (I was able to immediately connect to Netflix on my laptop and continue watching the show I was attempting to watch with no problem). If you intend to watch Netflix, this is NOT the player for you!

Rated 4 out of 5 Solid product, lots of apps
I like this BluRay player a lot, in terms of pictures and quality. While it is nice to have Netflix and DLNA, the interface and implementation could use some work. The Dish Hopper and iPhone have nailed UI in a way that is difficult to describe but you know it when you see it.
The LG interface gets the job done, but isn't nearly as intuitive.
And this review interface doesn't work with an IPad....

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sean Good if you don't use Netflix
I bought this when it initially came out, played everything great... and then the updates started happening.
I'm an avid Netflix user, and since some updates in the middle of 2012 Netflix continually skips, gets out of sync, etc. This is a known issue with this line, and for someone that uses it constantly it's not acceptable.
If you're looking for a good Blu-ray player this is nice, but if you're going to use Netflix, STAY AWAY!

Rated 4 out of 5 by JoshO Pretty Good, but Some Problems
I wanted this because it was time to upgrade to Blu-ray, and I like the network video playing capability.
Initially we had a lot of problems with it wanting to update, but failing in doing the update over the network. The problem is, it didn't want to do anything else until it got the update done. I was able to download the update and put it on a USB drive, and it was able to update. It seems to have been able to do the next couple updates fine after that.
It plays videos over the network Pretty well, even on WiFi (very close to wifi router). It works even better from the USB port on a flash drive of course. I've used the Netflix streaming a couple times and that works well too.
One incomprehensible oversight though is the image viewing feature. I wanted to show some vacation photos over the network to my Family. Navigated to the computer they were stored on, and mysteriously, most of the images couldn't load, but a handful did. Turns out that it can't view photos that are over 4MB in size. Well, pretty much any camera makes images a little larger than that (My DSLR camera averages 6MB per pic) so this is kind of unacceptable. It can play a 1.5 GB video, but can't load a 4MB jpg? Kinda dumb. I hope they fix it in a subsequent update.

Rated 5 out of 5 by raphaelmaz BD670 works great!
I read seven hundred Amazon reviews before deciding to buy this product. Despite all of the negativism, I decded to buy because there seemed to be a 'hysteria' in the later months of the reviews. I do not regret in the least my purchase. This player has worked perfectly according to its specs. When you buy an instrument of this complexity, you have to think about what your doing and you must follow instructions. This has been a boon to our video entertainment activities.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jijiandfarmgang Unit is broken out of junk warranty
When it works aside from needing to be updated everytime you turn it on it boast a few nice features.
After owning it a few months (warranty for free labor is only 3 months) I had watched about 10 or so blu rays. Now it wont play, or barely plays and clunks and bangs extremely loud.
Look at other reviews on Amazon, this happens many times to people and to fix it LG charges 70 dollars for labor, RIP OFF for junk product

Rated 2 out of 5 WiFi doesn't work
Have had this product for approx. 6 months. Have had nothing but problems connecting to wifi. When finally can, many buffering problems and unit will shut itself down, for no reason. Have updated driver many times, but only seems to get worse, each time. 2 nights ago, updated, and now can't connect at all. WiFi is the reason I bought this product. Want to get rid of my cable movie channels and use NetFlix and such for moving watching, so far not happening. DVD and HD playing works well, so can't complain about that. My guess is that the reason this product is discontinued is because of the WiFi issue. Especially after reading some of the other reviews.
