      Best Uses

        Comments about LG 5.1 Channel Black Network Blu-ray Disc Home Theater System:

        Overall, this machine performs wonderfully, load times are almost negligible and the picture is great. The design is ok with a somewhat annoying blue backlight that cannot be turned off and the volume knob is too large. The ipod dock on the front is simple and easy to use, however, the usb port is on the top of the machine rather than the front, making it awkward to use if in a tighter space. The major annoyance with this machine is the complete lack of onboard memory, though the USB port makes it easy to upgrade. This means no BDLive or any other downloadable content without an additional amount for some memory. The last small annoyance is the shabby remote control response and the slow player response when navigating between inputs, there can be a lag time of a few seconds between pushing input and a response from the machine. This happens with other LG products as well. The price makes all those small annoyances acceptable. It is (was) very very affordable and the speaker quality and setup is excellent and easy, respectively. Overall, it is a great machine for the money, the superfluous annoyances (minus the lack of memory, big no no, at any price) are merely having to get what you pay for. This would still have been a great machine for even a hundred more on the price. I would recommend it to anyone.

              Comments about LG 5.1 Channel Black Network Blu-ray Disc Home Theater System:

              Excellent with Netflix, DVD and Blu Ray movies, sometimes the volume will blast your eardrums, other times you have to increase the volume to hear what is being said and then risk a blast. The ease of use takes some trial and error to set your preferences and I still attempt to adjust the settings depending on the input source. The cable TV signals are the hardest to adjust to get a surround sound output or I may be just doing it wrong. I would suggest some sort of stand for the front L & R speakers so that distance could be adjusted for optimal performance and listening. I was not aware this product was to be discontinued or replaced.

                  I've had my system for about 3 months now and LOVE it! My wife loves the pandora radio that she can put on while she cleans the house. Also the simplink feature is nice since we have an LG 42" LCD and can use one remote to operate the other. The sound is awesome and picture quality on blu ray and DVD is amazing! Highly recomend this product, too bad it's discontinued...

                      I really like this home theater system. It has great features. I especially like that you can connect to the internet to access all of the cool blu-ray features that come with the movies. And I like that I have several different ways to listen to music and watch movies. Overall the sound is great; I don't need to go past level 5 in volume.

                          This home theater system is a great value! With it's network connection, Netflix ready system, and exceptional sound quality this home theater system is a great bargain. We have only had one problem which we discovered within the warranty period and are going to get fixed. Other than this problem the whole family has enjoyed this home theater system.

                                  The ability to connect this surround sound to the internet provides an added bonus of features that rivals the PS3 (except the fact that PS3 plays games). The satellite speakers are surprisingly strong and the subwoofer satsifies all movie buffs expectations for wanting a true theater experience at home. The only minor downfall I could think of would be the start-up time is about 20 seconds or so, aside from that the product is about as perfect as there are available.
