Pros This product is great interfacing with Netflix online, does a pretty good job at up converting DVDs
Cons Slow load times on blue rays. And worst of all the "marker" button does not save your position on Blue Ray Discs.
Summary worst of all the "marker" button does not save your position on Blue Ray Discs. What this means, is everytime you turn off your movie half way through, you need to watch the trailers AGAIN!! and search for your position :(I called LG support, and they said the the Blue Ray Disc manufacturers disabled the marker feature on many new releases!! So in translation....my $90 DVD player has more functionality than this $250 dollar player. Who wants to search through the movie and be forced to watch trailers?
Pros Picture quality great
Fast disc loading time
Cons Read review on cnet australia, before buiyng this player, didnt know that there were different features available there.
Summary The Cnet Australia review stated that the player can play movie files off of a USB flash drive. This was one of the main reasons that I bought the player, and this doesnt work with the player bought in the US. Hopefully this is activated after a firmware upgrade, adding the ability to play files off of a usb flash drive will be a great addition tot he feature set.

How could the same model player have different features??????
Pros Mostly solid Blu-ray player. Has Netflix and Youtube. Decent price. Nice interface. Good beginner unit.
Cons Would not play Toy Story 3 and Ice Age 3.(but has played everything else) Could not update firmware through internet so had to request firmware upgrade by mail (Customer Service did send CD within 4 days) Really wish unit had Pandora.
Summary A decent buy but probably hard to find now. I have owned for one year so I can say it has been reliable. I'm ready to upgrade for a unit with more features including Pandora!
Pros It plays blu-rays, and it doesn't cost a fortune. I also found the Netflix capability very handy.
Cons DVDs don't work for me. I got a firmware update, and it just doesn't go. It's not that big of a deal, since my computers can play DVDs no problem, but it is one of the features I was looking for when I bought it.
Summary I'd steer away from this product, as I have (now) read plenty of bad reviews of this player. It seems pretty unstable and problematic.
Pros DivX MP4 via USB drive and key, Fast Reading (10 secs for DVD [non-bluray])
Cons Had issues with YouTube and USB drive reading (both fixed)
Summary USB drive has to be formatted as FAT32 so used software called Fat32Formatter 1.0 to format. Plays Divx and MP4 with no issues. Changed router and You Tube works fine.
Don't know about US as my player is a BD370C bought in Canada.
