By Jeff Kraus VINE VOICE on May 15, 2009
I have to say that I'm impressed with this unit. The wait times are not too bad at all, and as others have said, the picture quality is excellent. Standard DVD upconversion is excellent. There are a few minor issues that I've found, which I'll get to.

Setup out of the box was quick and simple. I plugged it in and set a few audio options, video needed no adjustment from the defaults.

The network setup wasn't too bad, but I did have some issues with encryption. I also purchased a new wireless router (the Netgear RangeMax WNDR3300 Wireless-N Router) to replace the near-decade-old Linksys I have. I tried two different encryption types, and both both times the player could connect after entering the key, but refused to obtain an IP address. Disabling encryption on the router caused the player to obtain an IP address quickly, and setup was complete. Currently I'm running without encryption but with MAC address filtering. I'm okay with that, but I might go back and try encryption again now that I've downloaded a firmware update for the router. Other reviews state no problems setting up with encryption, so the problem might be specific to my setup.

Netflix functionality took a few seconds to set up. Anything in your "Watch Instantly" queue is displayed in the Netflix menu and you can rate any of them from the player. Unfortunately, at this time there is no ability to browse or search for anything that's not already in your queue. With the right connection, the higher quality video is quite good - as good or slightly better than standard definition cable.

And I mean, 'so far.' This is my third BD player, since my last two did not make it past one month. My first was a SONY BDP S350. After a month, it broke down (see my review on that player's Amazon page). I figured, it happens. I traded that player in for a Samsung P3600, based on rave reviews (including those of the Best Buy sales people). The Samsung did not last 24 hours! (again, see my review on that player's Amazon page). Now I started getting frustrated.

After spending enough (way too much) time on-line looking at reviews of several players on various sites, I decided to go for the LG BD390. Sadly, the Best Buy by me said it did not have this latest model. I was happily surprised to find out, when I got to the store to bring in my Samsung player, that they DID have the 390! I snatched the last box they had!

While this may all change in time (I sure hope not), based on my past BD experience, so far this player is AMAZING. Where do I start...

The owner's manual: the easiest to understand, best written I have seen in a long time.

The remote: flawless. The Sony one was too bulky. The Samsung one did not respond unless you pressed each button several times, completely directed at the player. The LG remote responds fast and is simple and to the point. It even responds when not aimed directly on the player's face!

Picture quality: No complaints either from the Sony, Samsung or LG. All were/are beautiful, using an HDMI cable on my 42 inch SONY WEGA. The LG makes connections and settings much easier to understand than the other two brands I mention. Of course, this being my third player, I can do the connections and settings almost in my sleep by now!

Bottom line, this is simply the best network Blu-ray player on the market. Blu-ray playback, flawless. Streaming Netflix via wireless internet connection, flawless. Any complaints are most likely user error or due to slow internet connection speed, so I have an important bit of advise to potential buyers. HD Netflix requires an internet data rate of ~8mbps. Entry level cable or DSL data rates are 5 and 3 mbps respectively. You will need to upgrade (usually costs $5-$10 per month) to stream HD Netflix. Cable users will be able to watch SD no problem at ~5mbps but SD requires about 3.5 mbps minimum, so entry level DSL users will have some problems streaming SD Netflix. Some DSL service is only 1.5mbps which is well, silly.

One more note: I am a Mac user and I can connect the BD390 to the internet and run all the available applications advertised just fine. The only thing you can't do is route iTunes directly from your computer to your TV via the BD390, which you don't really need if you use Netflix. Not a deal breaker.

Verified Purchase
Purchased a BD 390 2 weeks ago. Out of the box I was able to hook it up to 802.11n and a hardwire connection. The first night I downloaded a firmware update. All worked well that night. The next day, the unit locked up after turning it on for 30 seconds. After another 30 seconds, the unit turned itself off. This happened under any function ... consistently. I called LG support and spoke to a tech rep. We troubleshooted it with me over th ephone and he said it was a defective unit and needed to be returned to LG - I would get it back after 3 to 4 weeks. A brand new unit? I am not that patient. So I returned it to Amazon and they sent me a replacement in a few days.

I setup the unit the night it was delivered. Setup was easy and Netflix came in well. I was also able to see videos and hear mp3's on my NAS - same as the other unit. I downloaded a firmware update that night. The next day, the unit locked up after turning it on for 30 seconds. After another 30 seconds, the unit turned itself off. This happened under any function. I called LG support and spoke to a tech rep. We troubleshooted it and he said it was defective and needed to be returned to LG - I would get it back after 3 to 4 weeks. Amazon would not replace the second unit so they kindly refunded my money - thank you Amazon! Difficult to believe I bought 2 bad units that have exactly the same failure. I begged the LG tech to tell me how to revert back to the older firmware, they told me how to reset it but the process failed on both units.

So, I went to Best Buy and bought a LG BD 370. Not quite the same functionality, but close to the BD 390. Setup was easy. Netflix came in great on hardwire ethernet thru a gigabit switch to FiOS. I downloaded the firmware update - crossed my fingers.
