I bought this to replace a 4yr old DVD player, so I was prepared to be impressed, but I wasn't expecting everything to be so *easy*! I plugged everything in, including the ethernet, switched it all on and -boom- it updated its firmware and I was watching content from Netflix within 5 minutes. Setup with the Harmony universal remote was also very simple. HD picture over HDMI is great on my old (but large) rear-projection set, I like the menus and the little things (like starting a disc at the last position, even after playing other discs in between).
Only real gripe has been a problem on trying to 'rewind' a DVD during playback, causing the device to freeze up and restart itself. This seems to be intermittent, but hasn't happened since the last firmware update a couple of days ago, so fingers crossed. I also haven't found a way to play fullscreen DVDs without stretching them to fit the widescreen.

The product works good, but I have had a few issues with the product. One time, the menu would not show up on the TV. The LG logo would come up and then it just went blank. I just was getting audio. Did the usual stuff like reseating cables, resetting the box (as recommended in the instructions), and no luck.

Unfortunately, I had to call LG Service and the person on the other end of the phone was horrid! After doing no troubleshooting, she eventually just asked for my address to send a return form for the item.

Afterwards, I discovered the actual issue was that the TV had to be turned off and on! I later got the form and my name was mispelled beyond recognition, which shows how much the tech understood.

The Netflix portion works - but I have to reset the ethernet router a lot. I never had to do that when I had the router connected to dish. I'm not sure if this is a Netflix issue or the product itself.

Quality of the BlueRay player is good. I bought this product for the NetFlix Online feature, but I would probably try a different brand if I were to do this again. Too many problems and not enough support.

      Okay, I exaggerate a bit. I loved this machine so much I had it pre-ordered a month before it was available. It is great. I've never had a problem with it.

          Comments about LG Black Network Blu-Ray Disc Player:

          This BluRay player was hot the day it came out and still is one of the best on the market. We bought this BluRay player because we wanted both BluRay and Netflix in one affordable package. It has not only performed flawlessly but continues to improve with time as upgrades have added new features. Our kids love to use the YouTube feature to browse YouTube and play videos. I have used the BD-Live function which works but found little compelling material to usually bother with it. This was our first LG product and we are very impressed. From now on LG will be on our short list of quality products.

              Owned for just over a year and it has worked OK; however, there was a glitch after a firmware upgrade in which the unit would no longer play DVDs, required service at a qualified dealer (in my case 1+hours away). Now, it is having difficulty playing Blu-Rays (Disney in particular, without scratches), not sure what the problem is...

                This player is a decent BluRay player and was great for Netflix. Unfortunately, a couple of month after I bought it, it was discontinued and it hasn't gotten any of the netcast features. It's also missing the ability to stream content from a network drive. Otherwise, it's an easy to use device that should work for most people only looking to add Netflix and YouTube to their online entertainment experience.

                  This is my first Blu-Ray player. The quality is good - not awesome - but it's much much better than an up-scaled standard DVD player. I enjoy the Netflix watch-it-now and YouTube accessibility. I also experienced the firmware update issue as described below, but customer service was extremely helpful. The only reason I would upgrade now would be to get into the Roxio CinemaNow features that unfortunately have not yet been retro-actively provided to this level of LG players. Overall, a nice DVD player with some really great features. It's discontinued now, but you may be able to find it used for a decent price!

                      When I bought this player, I thought it was cutting ege. It was, but not for long. I'm not sure, but I think maybe some of the features available with newer units like the bd390 could be added without having to buy a whole new player. Why not even offer the upgrades for a small fee?

                              I was a little unsure of this providing quality video using the streaming feature but not anymore. This is so easy to use and most always gives great quality presentations of the videos I select on Netflix. As far as the quality of the Blu-ray it is also quite impressive. Great buy and I would definitely recommend it.
