This review is from: LG BP220 2D Blu-Ray Player with Smart TV (Black) (Electronics)
I bought the LG BP220 along with 3 other blue-ray players - Sony s185, Toshiba BD2150. The LG BP220 stands way ahead of the others.

At $89 it is $10 more, but well worth it. To be honest, I didn't try the internet capabilities. That was not much of interest to me. Just playing DVD's, and USB hard drives.

On the USB section, this plays any hard drive I threw at it, and plays every format except ogg and flac.

The menu displays are dazzling. The unit uses a Mediatek MT8551 processor to obtain all the functions.

Its a fairly heavy unit. At lease compared to the Toshiba.

The only issue I would say is the rather small remote. The keys are kind of rubbery.

I especially like the counter display on the front of the basal. It shows time elapsed and "HELLO" when turned on. For some reason I want to know how much time was used, and on other units I have to use the remote menu info.

What is a Mediatek MT 8551 processor. Who else uses it?

Can it play .m2t (.m2ts, etc.) files sequentially without stopping at the end of each video file? I've tried Sony BDP-S185 and unfortunately it pauses on black for a second when the clip is over and it starts a new clip (.m2t file). If there are hundreds short (3-20 seconds) clips that becomes very annoying, so I am looking for a Blu-ray player that can play all of them sequentially without pauses...

This is a good question and I'd like to know the answer as well.

My test of a Western Digital standalone media player has shown to me that it has the same problem. After some experimentation with this topic, my conclusion is as following: the hardware of modern media players is able to play MPEG-2 and AVCHD (MPEG-4) files continuously, however, it needs to be told (via a play list) which files to play next, so the player can pre-buffer video data (including meta-data, such as fps, ratio, dimensions, compression, etc.), so the playing is smooth. My guess is that it will take another 4-5 years before we'll see it implemented.

For now, I am just looking for compact and clever utility for PC (similar to RevolverHD on Mac) that can burn an AVCHD disc with video files without alterening/transcoding them. Roxio should be able to do that, but paying $100 for just building a BDMV folder structure seems to be excessive.

That's very interesting that your player doesn't play FLAC. I have the BP620, and it plays that flawlessly.
