Pros none at all
Cons broke very quickly (would not play blu ray disks) but since i had for more than 90 days, not covered by warranty. shocking that a brand new item is covered for so little by manufacturer. these have a high failure rate. do not buy an lg blu player,
Pros Played the one disk I got to try, easy to connect to network.
Cons Firmware update took multiple attempts.
Premium application function for streaming services would not load.
Player slow to boot up when powered on.
Summary Will not buy LG again, quality control and customer service are a joke. I was a cable tech and installer and am very comfortable around AV equipment. When I first booted up the player it was quick to connect to my wired network but it took two tries to get the firmware to update. Then when trying to access the streaming services in order to set up Netflix I would hang in a black screen for several minutes before returning me to the home screen. I called LG Support and the support tech sounded half asleep. After walking me through a simple reset (which I had already tried) which did not work their next answer was that the player would need to be sent to them for service. I will be returning the player to the store and will be looking for a more reliable brand.
Pros After reading several reviews for several systems on several sites, the reviews on CNET sold me on this unit. I had it out of the box, updated all the software (do this via a wired connection for best results), and was watching NetFlix in less than 15 mi
Cons The WebApps are limited with promisies of updates "soon".
Summary A good purchase so far. My main concern was watching NetFlix which I was able to do in quick order. I've not had the opportunity to test the Blu-Ray feature itself, but everything else is working as advertised (and reviewed). Once the burn-in process is complete I may purchase another one for the family room.
Pros 1. Player worked well (while it worked).
2. Liked the disk resume feature to pick up wathcing amovie where we left off the eveing before.
3. Large on screen icons on GUI made them easy to see at a distance of 9-10 feet.
Cons 1. Began to encounter 'disk errors' when playing DVDs (DVDs worked fine in other players) < 30days
2. Drive began making grinding and clunking sounds after < 30 days use.
3. Firmware 'buggy'. Two updates required in < 30 days.
4. Clearly L
Summary Needed immediate firmware upgrade right out of box to correct audio glitch at chapter breaks when playing DVDs. Began to encounter 'disk errors' and noted drive grinding and clunking after less than 30 days of use. Returned to vendor for refund. Will consider different brand. Too bad quality and reliability is so poor as this LG unit had the right combination of features. Unfortunately I do not have the time, patience, or inclination to get on the revolving returns bus in the hopes of eventually cherry picking a 'good' unit.Cons:

4. Clearly LG has serious quality control issues with this unit.
Pros Internet functions are great. Pretty easy set up.
Cons Blu ray player broke within first few months. Have to send it back and pay to have it fixed.
