What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neat looking device with excellent performance. Have only had the device a few days but very pleased with my purchase. It is neat and unobtrusive and had all the features i need. Very easy to connect up and I particularly like the private sound mode which is available via the LG A/V Remote App.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from compact with decent results only had the player a short while but its probably the best one ive owned yet. due to flashdrives etc i wasnt going to bother with another dvd player .. [as i dont use one much] .. but i was looking for a standalone media player. the BP556 seemed has usb and more codec options than previous players so i gave it a go. well for me the picture quality is very good. the playback of flashdrives seem to be much faster than past players but menus can slow it down. i find the remote buttons cramped and keep pressing the wrong buttons in the dark .. switching back to home and having to search back. that would be my biggest gripe. it also doesnt seem to play all internet codecs .. such as webm and vp8 type and some older flv. some video and audio soundtracks fail. i was surprised that even avi files are fussy. oh and not all dvd files like TS can play .. regardless of name formats. time someone decided on a standard file format. ok so ive written the player off .. but not really. it does a decent job with the right files. its fast with sharp pics. internet [youtube] plays smooth and look different on a big screen compared to my laptop! i just hope it gives a decent service.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Crashes frequently with Netflix Nice and cheap. Works well as a DVD player. BUT it always crashes with Netflix, I cannot use it to watch a film with the on-board software. Updates for the firmware is very infrequent.
