Received it and it worked fine for about 15 minutes. After downloading the update, the bd690 shut down and the HDMI port quit working. The component and composite outputs worked fine. After testing two HDMI cords and connecting the bd690 through my Denon 3808 receiver and directly into the TV it was obvious that the problem was the bd690. LG customer service was very quick to answer but the service was average at best. The person was helpful, but was definitely reading from a script. After telling her everything I had done she started asking me to test other HDMI cords, etc, which I had already done. They even had me download the incorrect update file the first time around. Will update when I get my replacement. Hopefully the firmware update doesn't blast the HDMI port every time...

Update: (5/8/2011)
Called LG about replacement on 5/7 as I still have not received it. This time around they tell me I'm not getting a replacement but that they are in fact "repairing" my unit. Not what they told me on the phone 3 weeks ago, and so much for the 7-10 day window. LG customer service falling quickly in my eyes.

The conversation went something like this.
Wondering when my replacement will come?
We are repairing it so it will take a little time to go through service
I was told I would get a replacement in 7-10 days
I don't see that in the notes
So I'm not getting a new one?
Yes you will get that as soon as possible
But you just said I was getting it repaired
Yes
So I'm getting a repaired one?
Yes.

Divide by zero at this point and hung up!

If the main reason you would select this guy over another unit is the fact that it has its own internal hard disk you should be aware that usage is very unreliable. I've only loaded video off my camera so copyright protection should not be an issue. I can load some videos; play some videos; rename videos -- or do just about anything and then all of a sudden the BD690 totally freezes up -- I can not turn this guy off via the remote or even using the switch directly on the unit -- the only option is to unplug it from the wall. This isn't a once in a blue moon occurance -- it happens a lot.

Have had the player for about 3 months now and am still waiting for LG to correct the problem. Spent a month waiting for them to come up with a new software update to correct the problem to no avail. Finally they said to send the player back for service. Have now done this twice and every time they send it back with the same problem. Now they refuse to replace it with a new unit with a new warranty. They want us to send it back for service for the third time. I have spent hours on the phone trying to talk to someone with the authority to replace the unit and have just been given the runaround. Thing is they know there is a problem with this player but won't, or don't know how to fix it.Product was great at first. Was very easy to hook up (under 5 minutes and was streaming)Problem was the software updates. First lost all the icons in the premium apps. Called LG. They told us to download an update for the software,this brought back the icons but totally made the audio distorted. Called them again, and again, and again. Been at least three weeks and still no solution for the screw up. Blu-ray discs have no problems with audio distortion, only any apps involving instant streaming. Can resolve the problem myself by changing the resolution in the network app everytime the player is restarted after powering down. Changing from 720 to 1080 or vice versa everytime you power up the player fixes the audio problem. A real pain. P.S.FIVE STARS FOR AMAZON. THEY STEPPED UP TO BAT AFTER EXPLAINING THE SITUATION AND OFFERED A REFUND ON THE PLAYER WHEN THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO. THANKS, AMAZON

OK...so I purchased the LG BD590 because I don't have a 3D television or plan to get one anytime soon. However, I purchased it at a great price from Amazon.com ($199). Returned it because it wasn't upgradeable without problems...look at the reviews for the LG BD590 and you'll see that there is a bug everytime anyone tries to upgrade the software when it prompts you to do so. Also, the Netflix on the BD590 is simple...a few genre's listed and categories and you pick from them or your stored que...you can't search for movies by title. With the BD690, it is different---you CAN search by typing in words like you would on a Wii or Xbox enabled Netflix. Also, I haven't done it yet but it says on the BD690 you can hook up a Iphone or Ipad and use the keyboard to enter data. Also, the customer service rep I spoke to at LG told me the app for MLB.COM wasn't working on the BD590---I tried it and subscribed on the BD690 and the picture is so incredible...this blueray player must upscale something because the baseball game looked incredible and lifelike. Now, welcome the LG BD690---another reviewer commented that there isn't any Amazon VOD on it...that is true...but, when you do the upgrade it prompts you to do, you have it and a few more things including a Google portway to get on the internet and use your TV as a full internet ready setup...WOW. This unit cost me $50 more than the BD590 but was well worth it...including the ability to do Hulu Plus and other stuff---games, puzzles and more...I LOVE this player...and even though it was $50 more, it also came with a FREE $5.99 credit for Vudu to watch a movie on them....great right there...Get this player and you WON'T be disappointed!!! LOVE IT.
