Pros GOOD USE FOR BLUERAY DISKS
Cons THE LATEST FIRMWARE UPGRADE HAS MADE THE UNIT UNABLE TO CONNECT WIRELESS TO THE INTERNET. i AM NOW UNABLE TO VIEW MLB ,NETFLEX OR ANY OF THE SITES i EXPECTED TO BE AVAILABLE WITH THIS UNIT. IT HAS BEES OVER A WEEK SINCE I DISCOVERED THIS AND THE ONLY INF
Summary SORRY THIS UNIT WAS EVER BOUGHT
Pros Good picture, easy to navigate, large movie icons.
Cons In less than 90 days from the purchase of this item the sound becacme garbled. I sent it bad to LG. After a month with NO commincation from LG, I got the set back with a notation that no problem was found. The problem is still in the unit.
Summary First, the 90 day warranty is much too short for a solid state unit. Second, LG has no concept of customer service. I heard nothing from them in the 1MONTH they kept my player for a sound problem. The unit was finally returned to me with the notation that no problem was foiund. The same day I got the set back from LG I streamed a Netflix movie. The sound went bad in the first half hour of the movie. The problem happens whether I play the sound through my TV or my stand alone tuner. So, if you by this player expect no help from LG! They have no concept of customer service.
Pros Wireless seems pretty strong with good content offering. Video and audio both very nice. Easy to set up and use.
Cons Disc skips - such as "Up" - numerous reports at the EXACT same spots so obviously a player issue. See official thread for 570 at AVS Forum for other problem titles.
Summary As mentioned, this is a BD HDMI issue and does not appear to affect the very same discs connected via component. However, the reports of disc skipping are consistent as to both titles and exact time of problems. LG has been silent on this so far - it is obviously a problem and they need to fix it pronto! If and when it is fixed, I can highly recommend this player but not until then. Of course, I have updated my firmware, so the problem is with LG, not the users. I urge CNET to give discs such as Up or Terminator Salvation a try and report on this major (although hopefully temporary) flaw.UPDATE - the old disc problems were fixed with a firmware update. Of course, new ones have since appeared, but that appears to be a problem encountered by every manufacturer. Overall, a pretty nice machine.

"Great player!!"on by davidp71
Pros Replaced my Samsung BD-P3600 that was having some netlix instant streaming issues. Great price, 249.99 on sale at BB.
Cons Nothing so far....
Summary Out of the box set up was a breeze. Connecting wirelessly to my N router took under 10 seconds with push button connect. Great picture quality and sound. Hooked up to Yamaha YAS-71 soundbar. Would highly reccomend this player to anyone. The upgrade is the BD590 which was a little out of budget at almost 400.00.
Pros Compatc and very light, Easy To Set Up, High Quality Picture, Attractive Design, Consistent Performance, Easy To Use,eject the disk using remote
Cons nothing major, need 7.1 channel output,
Summary I bought this item last Saturday and set up with home theater within 30 minutes. I used HDMI cable to hook up the Denon receiver, picture quality is superb. The sound quality is perfect. You may need to adjust the display resolution ratio to match with the TV monitor. I did not find any issues so far.
