"Redefining Crap"0.5 starson by jabbas29455
Pros: Easy Set up
Cons: Crashed within 5 minutes of owning it
Summary: Haven't updated since a 2008 Panasonic player, and I thought I'd see if 1. Image quality has been improved on with newer players, and 2. Wanted to check out the streaming options. Set up was very easy, and it recognized my home WiFi connection in seconds. As far as image quality, no appreciable difference over my 2008 player, not that that's faulting the LG in any way. When I tried to access the "Premium" content to load Apps such as MLB.TV, there was a mandatory software update, which I accepted (ss I had no choice). It told me "update failed" and reset the system. When I turned it on it offered me a software update which I accepted, and then again told me the update failed. I attempted to access the Premium menu, and it was stuck on the load screen indefinitely. So, Literally 5 minutes into owning the player I realized that 1. Image quality was no better than it was in 2008, and 2. This thing will crash at a seconds notice. I'd seen enough, and took it straight back to where I got it. I'm sticking with my 2008 player for now, but if I were to upgrade to a modern WiFi Streaming Blu Ray player, it sure as hell wouldn't be this one.
