Good for Offline Content.. Not so good for Online
on May 19, 2012
Baught this player 1 week back (Not from Amazon).
It is sleek but the front feels plastic like despite glossy finish.
Connections on back are adequate for AV.
It plays almost all 2d and 3d video without any glitch.
I did not notice it doing any improvement on standard video by upscaling to HD.
Audio codec support is good as well including flac. Plays pictures well but no stretching options available.
Internet connectivity works through wired network.
The interface for live content is crap..
Web content available only through LG interface and apps (No web browser built in and none available in LG appstore)
Online videos are jerky despite good internet speed (5mbps)
Almost 70% apps in LG app store are not supported on BP520.
I could not make the DLNA work when player is connected to wired nw and my laptop is on wifi (Could be some more settings to explore as I can stream through my smartphone on wireless)
All in all GOOD FOR OFFLINE CONTENT but NOT GOOD FOR ONLINE CONTENT.
