I bought this product on sale at a local Fry's for 29.99. Even with the wireless router in the same room with the product with no security I could not get a wireless connection. A software "upgrade" that could not be declined nor reverted removed the Amazon video app -- my primary reason for purchasing the device. Were it not for the 40 mile roundtrip and 15% restocking fee I would be returning this device.

I tried to submit a review on the lg website more than one week ago and lg apparently has declined to publish as there are still 0 reviews of the product over there.

Like most people here, I bought this at Fry's for $29.99, cheapest streaming, media player device you could find anywhere. First of all, for those that gave this one star, it's not fair for LG. No device is perfect and so is this one, it can't satisfy all of our needs. I have to agree that one major flaw is that the wifi reception of this device sucks and it doesn't remember my password setting! Quite a few times, when I turned it on, I had to reenter the password. Now are the good parts: the remote control feel nice the your hand, not too small, not too big, ergonomic and has just enough buttons. And so is the content apps, it has Netflix, Hulu Plus, Vudu, CinemaNow, Pandora, YouTube (YES, YouTube is still there), even Google Map! Amazon is on the cover of the box but I don't know why it's not there any more :( The menu, user interface is clean, especially with Netflix, it's just exactly like on Roku (and yes, it does have closed captioning feature, unlike most of the streaming devices out there, for those of you that wonder) The other good part is that it is DLNA certified (well, if the wifi doesn't work, what's the point, right?) and it has USB port that can play pretty much the most popular media format you can throw at: avi, mp4, wmv, mkv.... with subtitles supported. What I was looking for is the device that has the clean Netflix interface AND has USB port so I can hook up and play media from my external hard drive (Roku has tons of content but I only care about Netflix and a few more, the top of the line model has USB but it can only play a very few media formats) If they fix the wifi issue via firmware update, this would be one of the best media streaming device!

I went to my local Fry's intending to buy a Roku XS. I really only wanted a way to stream Netflix since my Blu-Ray and TV aren't networkable. I happened to see this little guy for $29.99. I figured for that price I couldn't really go wrong.

So I took it home and used the automated method to connect to my wireless router. No problem at all. After entering my Netflix login info I was able to browse my (streaming) queue and select a movie. I've watched several movies with no issues and perfectly acceptable video quality. By the way, I have not had any wi-fi issues that others have connects to my network each time I turn it on.

The device can also connect to Vudu and Hulu plus. However, I have not used those features and probably won't. Youtube works great but it's a pain to search with the non-alphanumeric remote. There are some other premium channels available but not a lot. There is no web browser or way to add or delete things from the premium menu (boo).

I haven't used any of the other features like "smart share" or anything, either. I bought it for Netflix, it does that fine, and I'm satisfied, for the price I paid. If you have to pay more than $30, or want other features, I would look elsewhere.

UPDATE: 7/15/2013 I decided to replace this with the new Roku 3 just because it's so darn slow to start up, load the interface, and connect to Netflix. It worked fine but it gets a little old waiting so long for it to load everything.

Purchased this unit hoping to give it as a gift to someone. After purchasing the unit I took it home and set it up to confirm it worked and update the firmware and set it up. First thing I noticed was the total lack of wifi reception with the router located in the next room. I ran a wired connection and hoped that an update would fix this, and it did not. I set the LG SP520 literally next to the router and had full wifi reception, however at a mere 10ft away in the same room with an unobstructed line of sight to the router the reception dropped to 1 bar. Any further then 10-12ft or a wall in the way and a wifi connection can't be established. This is running the latest updates and firmware as of Sept. 14th.

Once I gave up on using wifi I decided I'd explore the functionality and ease of use of the device. Frankly, it sucks. To utilize netflix you have to access the 'Premium' content icon, select netflix then choose either the full flavor or child friendly version of netflix. There appears to be no way to add a netflix icon (or any other service for that matter) to the 'home screen' and you must access everything from the premium content area. This seems unnecessary and adds unseeded steps. I picked this device up for $34 and will be returning it first thing in the morning. If you have a wired internet connection at your flat screen then it isn't a horrible choice, but if you need wifi then keep on looking.
