      Just a disc player. Nothing really outstanding about it. It feels light as paper. Very thin unit. Remote works fine. A little noisy. Attractive design.

              Upconversion looks excellent. Problem with my universal logitech remote so that when I pause a movie it won't play unless I go find the cheap remote that the unit came with. I like the USB support so we can use with thumb drives to display jpegs but I wish it also allowed .avi movies. That would be awesome!

                This unit has all the ports I need for my system. Although it doesn't have all the features and picture tuning I like, its still a good deal.

                        Very nice DVD player. Low profile and compact. It puts out a beautiful picture on screen. It has nice features on the remote especially the one that takes you to the DVD menu by-passing all the previews.

                            I purchased this DVD player at the same time as my LG Television. I was initially attracted to the low profile, sleek design. Setting it up was as simple as any electronic could be. I took it out of the box, plugged in the power cord, and connected it to my television with a HDMI cable. I was very impressed with the quality of the picture. The feature set was robust especially considering the price. The menu was user-friendly and the included instructions were not needed to alter any of the settings. I would recommend this product to anyone needing a new DVD player for use with their HD TV.

                                My LG model DN898 DVD player is easy to use, and delivers an upscaled movie that's much better in quality than a regular DVD player does.

                                    I had 4 different LG DVD players, and every single one of them performed very poorly. I have other LG products that performed very admirably, but I wouldn't recommend LG DVD players.
