Rated 5 out of 5 by Jerry721 Outstanding. Super performance.
While I agree that the lack of an eject button on the remote is, at first, a bother, you have to get up to retrieve the DVD anyway, so a small adjustment to
habit is all it takes.
This Blue ray player is outstanding in its features. now we can get "subtitles" which was not possible on our old LG player. The picture in a picture feature is also super useful.
My wife is just now adapting to the "wave the remote"
feature, but that sure beats waving the frying pan.
I epoxy glued a small plastic cradle to the remote so it no longer tips over.
Great product, keep up the good work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by steamenginesteve Too smart for me
At first I was sorta mentally blocked with this bp730 LG machine. It does way more smart stuff than I expected. I wanted super 4k and 3d to play several 3d dvd's I had started collecting. I had difficulty at first just getting simple play-back with a 3d disk. I used a couple regular dvd's first which took right off. Then a couple blue ray disk's. Then I was amazed at a 3d cartoon and then sold on the different experience. Now this smart machine even asks me if I want to change my HDMI setting! For me the instructions where not exact enough. Frustrating trial and error paid off(I am a pro scientist) Likely, a teenager would do this quicker at set-up. Remote could be improved for hand fit and better stability resting on a table.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tsihan Great product
This smart Blu-ray player is excellent. Connectivity to the internet was easy and streaming movies is seamless. And it also plays discs!

Rated 1 out of 5 by unhappy1 Never worked right
Bought this product in June 2013 and have never had it working correctly. Had a new remote sent last year. No improvement. Tried to update software this year. No luck. Giving up and moving to a diffferent product. We fought the machine for 3 hours today trying to watch a movie and never saw anything. I have never been more dissappointment in an electronics product in my life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Larry The Blue Ray player is wifi ready and easy to use
We really enjoy this Blue Ray player. So much better than our Magnavox Blue Ray player.

Rated 1 out of 5 by WillyAG great player until it locks up
Ever since the last software update, the player locks up occasionally while playing a disc. The only way to unfreeze it is to unplug it but then it starts all over, even playing the previews. Very annoying. I clean the disc just in case and it usually plays through. But even if the disc is dirty, it shouldn't lock up. It should just play poorly or eject the disc, remembering the last position for after it's been cleaned.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dan After 6 months unit freezes up.
My first impression of the BP730 was wow. Nice sleek looking player. After 6 months, the unit freezes up.and occasionally will not even read the disc. The streaming features do not work well ( wired or wifi ) either. The magic remote works ok once you get used to it, but it will eat through a set of batteries in 2 weeks or less. There were other units to choose from in the same price range. I think next time I will try another brand or pay more and get a better quality player.
