The purpose of this review is to provide much needed information concerning this player. Prior to buying, I scoured the internet and could only find a few pieces of information here and there, so I thought it would be helpful to outline some of the player's features.

Technical Specifications:

- Profile 1.1 (BD BonusView Enabled)
- Front access USB port for convenient firmware updates
- Full HD output
- 7.1 channels of surround sound with Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby True HD, and dts-HD Master Audio technologies
- Digital coaxial output
- Express reaction startup

Does not include:

- An ethernet port or internal wireless device to access BD Live features

This is an excellent entry-level blu-ray player. The colors are vibrant and the picture is crisp connected to my Samsung LCD television via the HDMI port. Disc loading times are miniscule, with the player initiating playback in less than one minute. I have tested both recent and older blu-ray titles (Watchmen, The Prestige, Death Race) and have experienced no problems loading the disc or enjoying the non-BD Live special features. The unit itself is very sleek and slender and weighs less than five pounds. Additionally, the player is silent during use.

I highly recommend this player to anyone interested in owning a great blu-ray player at the low-end of the price spectrum. Although the player is not BD Live compliant, LG still deserves to be commended for releasing an affordable alternative to the price-conscious consumer.

I believe I am the first to review this product. At first, I was a little hesitant to buy, because I have not heard any comments from other buyers. Currently, I am a very satisfied customer. Blu-ray playback and regular DVD playback are excellent, fantastic picture quality and amazing sound. It has all of the Dolby TrueHD and DTS MA HD audio decoders. For those with older AV receivers like mine, it comes with a digital coaxial jack instead of the newer optical. The best feature of this player is that I have encountered zero skipping or other playback issues. I had originally bought a Samsung BDP1500, and it was absolute crap, could not play half of the blu ray discs and had multiple menu navigation issues and functionality issues. This LG has none, and I am quite suprised that this entry level model is EXcellent. I highly encourage others to buy. The only gripe I have is that the price is now $20 lower than when i had purchased.

I also have the "top of the line" LG BD 390, and other than the internet/wireless stuff, it's pretty much the same player. Same features and quality for less than half the price. I only need one player that I can watch Netflix and Youtube on, and so this one is for my kids in the basement.

Very easy to set up. Literally, after opening the package, putting it next to the TV, plugging in the HDMI to my TV and the power cord to the surge protector, it took all of 3 minutes for my 3 year-old to start watching an extremely awesome picture of "Ant Bully" on Blu-Ray.

Of course, the price dropped 10 bucks the minute after it was delivered, but I still feel like I still got an awesome deal, and that anyone even considering a Blu-Ray player should add this one to the list. It is still cheaper thsn some of the upscaling players out there, and just as good or better. Obviously, if you want the wireless internet connectivity, go with the BD 390, which is still fairly reasonably priced.

As the title implies, this is an excellent entry level Blu-ray player*; however, this is my first experience with a Blu-ray player, and as a college student, I wanted a brand name with a digestible price, and as for functionality, this player has thus far been up to the task.

Set-up was a breeze. Plug it in and enjoy. That's all there is to it.

As far as Blu-ray discs I've had the pleasure of viewing, I've seen Planet Earth, Hellboy 2 (boo!), Slumdog Millionaire, and Watchmen. And I must say that they all are fantastic, picture-wise, that is. But the one that takes the cake is Planet Earth - absolutely gorgeous. As for DVD upconversion with this player it has been solid. The DVD's that I have watched (too many to list) have had a noticeable facelift, albeit nothing in the realm of Blu-ray.

Sound, too, has been superb. Listening to the movies has been just as enjoyable as watching them. For someone that lacks the resources and space to acquire a proper sound system, this is important, but I suspect that that has more to do with the television rather than the player itself. Nonetheless, the sound has been fantastic.

With that said, some things do need to be pointed out for anyone considering this player. The first is that this player lacks any support for a component connection, so that leaves the user with two options: composite** input and HDMI input, and really, that is no option at all (watching Blu-ray with composite is like driving a car with square wheels, but I digress).
