Pros

Internal hard drive for media storage, direct CD ripping, very fast BD loading, lots of internet streaming features, wireless N, PC network connectivity, Gracenote info for movies in addition to music.

Cons

only one USB and it's in the front behind a faceplate, can't turn off/dim front display

Review

Excellent Blu-ray player with a convenient 250GB hard drive built-in to store movies, music, photos etc. The HD can also be used to store your BD-Live data if desired. You can search & rename files and can rip CD's directly to the hard drive or copy/play files from an external USB hard drive/memory stick. Files can also be transferred from the internal HD to a USB device. Nice looking user interfaces and dynamic info screens. Remote is nicely laid out and can control your TV if programmed. No backlighting.

Blu-ray startup from tray to menu is probably the quickest I've seen, probably besting the Playstation 3. Java menus move smooth and quickly. PQ and AQ is pretty much what you can expect from most BD players these days...excellent. There is a pretty cool Zoom function that works with BD's as well. The Gracenote feature (internet connection required) is awesome which can display the movie info with graphics for your Blu-ray and DVD's (with no playback interruption) as well as CD's.

If you're not in the mood for a BD, there are many streaming options with this player, which can be accessed via the built-in wireless B/G/N adapter or ethernet cable. Netflix, Vudu, Youtube, AccuWeather, Roxio CinemaNow, Pandora and Picasa Web Gallery. Excellent interfaces on these as well. Very smooth playback (depending on your internet connection of course). Playback of shared media files on your PC via the DLNA networking is very easy as well. Great feature!

Only minor nitpicks are the only USB port in the front behind the flip down faceplate and you can't dim/turn off the front display. There are no multichannel analog audio out jacks or S-video on this player.

Comes with composite video cables and Nero Media Essentials install CD for PC networking.

Pros

Streaming option, but limited

Cons

Doesn't like to play Blu Rays

Review

Misled by a good review in Home Theatre magazine, and some sort of propaganda leading one to believe LG would add more streaming options in future updates (which they could but chose only to do it for subsequent models) I bought one two years ago Christmas 2011. Eventually it began to dislike Blu Ray discs, spitting them out after making a strange little noise. Now you have to load a disc up to 20-30 times before it will decide to play it. DVDs, meanwhile, play instantly with no problem. LG's outsourced foreign call centers polite but useless. They refused to fix it and offered no options. Didn't even bother to call me back after agent promised to get me help. This, along with LG LED TV I bought at same time, was a mistake, and I would not recommend LG products again.
