    I received the players as a gift for Christmas one year. We've had it for about 2 years now. The interface is poor at best and the included programs are awful(Netflix, Pandora). This is really fine as we just use our Nintendo WII for most streaming tasks. Recently our player has stopped playing Blu-Ray discs. We put the disc into the player, it attempts to read it for a few minutes, then spits it back out. DVDs still work, but all Blu-Ray discs are a no-go now. The problem started intermittently but now every disc is rejected. We verified that the firmware was up to date and reset to factory defaults. Nothing has worked so now we are shopping for a new player which isn't made by LG.

    It was great while it worked

    Comments about LG Network Black Blu-ray Disc Player:

    I was happy with the BD550 until shortly after the warranty ran out it stopped playing BD disks. Everything else still works fine, and it still plays DVD, just no BD.

    Great player, mediocre software

    By CBrianA

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about LG Network Black Blu-ray Disc Player:

    This one was purchased to replace another player that stopped working. It HAD to have Netflix and VuDu, but anything else just added to the value. The player hookup was so simple - just three wires, incuding the Cat-5. Once it was powered up, I just had to set the language. It found the network and was ready to go. This unit has DLNA, which was something I wanted, but had not listed as a requirement. It comes with the Nero Media Home, which works, but is difficult to use. When media is added, I found it was necessary to stop the server and restart it before the BluRay player would find it. Other DLNA server software will work with the unit, including Windows Media Player, but you have to set each one up before you can stream. Overall, this is an excellent player, but you should remember that you aren't limited to the software that comes with the package.

                I only gave Overall 4 stars just because this is an older model that while wireless ready it needs to be plugged into the router. This has nice features and I appreciate the way this works. I never have a connectivity problem and rarely locks up. For the price it's a nice BD. Thanks LG you never let me down no matter what product it is.

                    Comments about LG Network Black Blu-ray Disc Player:

                    I received this as a gift. Ive used it for six months and the picture froze. Then it started kicking the dvd out and wouldnt play. I would unplug it and reset it and it would work for a few days. Then it just quit all together. I read reviews on other sites and everyone of them had the same problem I had.

                        Blue-Ray DVD device didn't have subtitle English from disk with CC. No matter device has setting for it but it was not working. I was very disappointed with it. I notice device is discontinued. It is not fair for me not able to view movie or film without closed captioning. Waste my money and angry.
