"Great when it works"3.0 starson by doodabides
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.
