I bought this player back in November 2010. Four months later, it is totally dead. LG wants to charge me for repair. Very poor quality.

I like the features and the performance seems good. I don't like the fact that I have to open the entire front of the unit to load a DVD.

Much to my dismay, this product would not work right out of the box. Spent 3 hours wondering why I had sound but no picture (direct HDMI connection.) I finally called LG for tech support to learn it had a malfunction and needed to be serviced. I told the tech I would be returning and I am later today! After this happened to me last night, I read more reviews like mine and wish I saw them sooner. LG just doesn't seem to make a product that works out of the box or long term. WOULD NOT BUY AGAIN!!!

Player itself is real nice. Fast load good performance. The remote seems awkward and I hate people who use dark colors for button icons. Dark blue , dark red are impossible to see except in bright light. I'm not to thrilled about the button layout either. The "trap door" front cover on the unit is a gimmick I don't need. and the display is too small to see but a few feet from the unit and it's not very bright. The performance is great, but the look and feel leaves much to the imagination.

This unit is sleek, easy to set up and gives a great image. This is the 2nd unit we bought, you won't regret it!

This a product with great features that doesn't function properly. I've updated the player with the latest software to no avail.

The player has some great features that I've really enjoyed, and movie playback has produced a great picture. On the other hand, the player repeatedly pauses during playback. I've watched dozens of movies on this player, and every one of them has resulted in numerous annoying, random pauses during playback. Watching a movie like this is torturous, and I finally said "uncle" and now use my PS3 to watch blu rays. Since I've switched over to the PS3, I haven't had a single problem playing movies. LG support will repair it, but it's going to cost me $69 for labor. They guaranteed the repair, which tells me they know the product has a technical fault that they're aware of and that they know how to fix.

Save yourself the headache and get a different product.

I tried to update my player after the 90 warranty on labor. Wireless stopped functioning, this is a known issue for this unit and the BD590. Now I have to wait to receive a disk that "should" fix the issue. IF not I have to send in the unit, and pay $70 for them to uncluster their mistake. Why would they have an update that cripples the unit, only to have to be sent in for $70? Because you should buy SONY! STAY AWAY from LG, your wallet will thank you in the end!

Anyone who's looking to buy a Blu-ray player, do yourself a favor and get a PS3. I'm not a hardcore gamer, but after playing around with my nephew's PS3 for a few months, I come to the conclusion the PS3 is the BEST Blu-ray player. It loads fast and won't have much issue with dealing with new releases on Blu-ray because they change protection scheme every month or so. You'll become frustrated when you put in that shiny new Blu-ray disc and it doesn't play. You wait months for LG to release a firmwire to update it. Another neat aspect of the PS3 is that it can easily adapt to new technologies. And Sony make sure their baby is up to date. All it takes is a software update from Sony - and it doesnt require complicated tasks to do so.

My LG player is only useful when I play yesteryear BDs. If you are not tech-savvy, you will not know that your BD needs a new firmware before it can recieve NEW updates. The PS3? Just go online and it will automatically update it for you - Firmwire and software.

The biggest drawback of the PS3 is that it does consume more power and it is louder than the tranditional disc player. But I'll trade that for not being able to watch new releases because LG is lagging on firmwire updates.
