What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice refrigerator. I purchased this refrigerator to replace a side by side refrigerator-freezer that quit working. I have never had a bottom freezer refrigerator before but never liked the side by side so decided to give this a try. After doing some research on different brands and having good personal experience with LG products I decided on this one, and so far a very pleased with it. I didn't particularly want the stainless steel finish but so far am pleased with the limited amount of smudges and fingerprints that show up on it. The interior portion of the refrigerator seems huge compared to the same cf size of my old refrigerator and the layout is great. I really enjoy the LED lighting. The ice maker works great. I am still undecided about how well I am going to like the bottom freezer. It seems that items could easily get buried and forgotten in the bottom of it. The upper rolling drawer in the top of the freezer is very convenient but that is just a small portion of the total size. The refrigerator is very quiet except when the ice maker dumps the new batch of ice but that in my opinion is to be expected and is not a problem. The one and only issue I have with this refrigerator is the difficulty I have in opening the door. There is such a tight seal (which for efficiency I know is good) that I have to give the door a good yank to open it. I very smooth floors and even with the front legs down solid on the floor it still moves forward over time and I have to push the refrigerator back. I feel that the door should not be that hard to open. Another feature that I like is that it came with a door reversal kit which due to the layout of my kitchen I used. I found it to be very easy to do. Overall I am glad that I purchased this product and would recommend it to anyone wanting a single top door, bottom drawer, refrigerator-freezer

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not an all-in-one solution I bought this on Saturday because I wanted an all-in-one streaming device and Blu-ray player. I was using a smart TV for Netflix and Hulu, and a media center TV with a Blu-ray player for everything else. I was hoping this would replace those devices. The device hooked up very easily. I connected it via cat 5E cable directly to the same router I have my TV and PC connected to. After turning it on, it ran an update and re-started. It has a pleasant and easy to use interface, with a variety of streaming applications that I was interested in trying. First, I tried to use Vudu. I've never used it before, but since it was the first app on the list, I gave it a shot. It made it as far as the loading screen, but that's where it stopped. I couldn't get the device to respond so I unplugged it and tried again. Same result. I tried it one more time and then I moved on to Netflix. Netflix loaded fine, but the first show I tried to stream didn't work (Dr. Who, Season 6 ep1). It said the stream wasn't available. I switched to my smart TV and my PC and it loaded fine (Connected to the same router). Episode 2 did load, but the video quality was very poor. It fluctuated from blurry to HD and back again. I tried it on both my other devices and the video quality was fine. Next I tried Amazon video. This was similar to Netflix, except worse. Not only did the video quality fluctuate, it lost the signal repeatedly, and when I tried to fast forward, the screen went white and the device locked up again. Again, it worked fine on my TV and streaming from a web browser on my PC. Lastly, I tried to stream an MP4 from my network. I was surprised that it found my server, but for some reason it only shows two folders out of many. I tried to play a number of different MP4s. Only one would play. The others caused the device to display a white screen and lock up. Every time it locks up you have to unplug it. On the one MP4 that would play, as soon as I tried to fast forward, it displayed a white screen and locked up. While testing this out I switched Cat 5E cables twice. Same result. I haven't tried the wireless yet, but I don't expect a better outcome. I never even bothered to try to play a Blu-ray or DVD. My media PC plays those fine, so I don't need that functionality anyway. I wanted an all-in-one solution and the LG BP 550 has turned out to be a none-in-one solution. I'm very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It was great while it worked I was happy with the BD550 until shortly after the warranty ran out it stopped playing BD disks. Everything else still works fine, and it still plays DVD, just no BD.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great player, mediocre software This one was purchased to replace another player that stopped working. It HAD to have Netflix and VuDu, but anything else just added to the value. The player hookup was so simple - just three wires, incuding the Cat-5. Once it was powered up, I just had to set the language. It found the network and was ready to go. This unit has DLNA, which was something I wanted, but had not listed as a requirement. It comes with the Nero Media Home, which works, but is difficult to use. When media is added, I found it was necessary to stop the server and restart it before the BluRay player would find it. Other DLNA server software will work with the unit, including Windows Media Player, but you have to set each one up before you can stream. Overall, this is an excellent player, but you should remember that you aren't limited to the software that comes with the package.

I am not able to listen to Pandora through my BD550 as I was able to before. It just says "unable to connect to the network", but Netflix works fine so I know it's connected.
