What People Are Saying

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 109 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Junk BASICALLY ONLY USEFUL AS A BLUE RAY PLAYER!!! But what do you expect for the price. YouTube is barley functional, the player keeps signing you out forcing you to go to the computer and entering a code, similar issues with NetFlix the player constantly drops internet connection whether on WiFi or LAN. no browser app so you can surf the net from the sofa. Constantly overheats and freezes up I had to modify an old computer aluminum Heat sink and use good thermal compound to fix the problem. I also had re fix some cold solder joints to many useless per-installed apps you cant get rid of that suck up memory making overall performance slow. All in all spend a little more money and buy something better!!! LG Should have thought this one out a little better. July 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superior Excellent quality and value. Have adopted LG for all June 25, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Works But Has Poor Remote The player seems to work in every mode; however the remote is very poorly designed. The problem is with its power. The remote takes only one AAA battery and must be pointed directly at the unit with nothing in the way to be able to work. I don’t know how many times I’ve pushed a button the same way I push the buttons on my other DVD players, cable box, audio amplifier, VCR, etc. and nothing happens. Then I have to stop, carefully point it directly at the unit and push again. This is not my first LG Blu-Ray player. I actually have three. The LG 335 has the same small remote, but I use it in a very small space where I am very close to the player. I have found however, that my oldest unit, a BD-670, has a remote that will work with this one without having to be so carefully used. Now I just have to find one. May 23, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Inexpensive but you get what you pay for. Extremely basic model with limited connectivity. Good bang for the buck though. March 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Increased my Entertainment options I have used my new Smart DVD Blu-Tooth player everyday since I received it. Great product. February 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great device This device is great for the price. The only problem I have is trying to figure out how to delete an app after downloading :) February 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by So far it has worked without any issues Still new to the features, so far looking very good January 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product Everything it was advertised to be. I especially love the fact that I can update its firmware online through the player. January 25, 2015

Answer: 
I hoped I could access Amazon Prime videos since this is a Smart player, but I cannot. I emailed the company trying to find an LG Blu-Ray player that works with Amazon Prime and received this response. I wish the answer was different, but I'm happy to get a complete answer.
"I’m afraid since 2012, Amazon VOD has only been available for LG Smart TVs, and not bluray players, home theaters and/or smart Tv upgraders. As much as I would love to assist you, I find myself unable to guarantee that there will be an update to add Amazon back to our boxed goods since we haven’t received any official notification from factory."

Answer: 
The 3D blu ray player should be connected to a 3D tv via a high speed HDMI cable. Check the packaging when you buy a cable to make sure it is 3D compatible.

Answer: 
The reply from LG is not accurate! The page that references this information is Pg 19 in the PDF file. In addition, you have to plug your player into a wired connection (If you have one) and then navigate to this section of the setup process, you CANNOT DO THIS WIRELESSLY. This is not a "user friendly" device! Good luck!
