      I purchased this unit in November 2013 & have had little problem with it UNTIL recent software updates which often cripple the HuluPlus app, all the other apps seem to work normally still (don't know about Netflix, don't use it). My primary reason for having bought this unit was to not only replace my old failing DVD player, but to also stream my subscription with HuluPlus w/o needing to use a computer. For the prior, it still functions much better than I had anticipated. For the latter, I'd like to either see a software update that fixes the problem or a way to revert/reinstall an older version of the software from prior to the one that caused the problems. The only support I could find here on the LG.com website about problems with HuluPlus is in regards to streaming issues of content, which doesn't apply since the app won't fully load to even stream the content. The site offers answers to common problems, but seldom address specific issues which require better answers & methods to fix the problems. This is one of those issues that needs to be addressed for when any apps used on LG products fail to load properly. Contacted HuluPlus about the problem & was informed they are aware of the problem & that they have been receiving multiple complaints from people who own LG devices of problems preventing the HuluPlus app from getting any further than the initial splash screen telling you it's loading (which if left alone can continue for hours). They have been trying to fix the problem but since it only seems to be a problem with LG devices, they can only offer suggestions & possible workarounds (which are still hit or miss). LG really needs to work better with it's industry partners to ensure product compatibility.

      The Connectivity features on this unit are pretty nice, if you need them. However, considering it is one of 6 connected devices in my entertainment center they pretty much serve no purpose for me. While playing Bluray discs I have never noticed a single problem, Bluray 3D playback is perfect as well. While playing DVD's I frequently have audio issues even while using lossless cables and a quality receiver. Initially I of course assumed there was an issue with a cable or the disc itself. But when I play the same discs with flawed audio in my Xbox, they play perfectly. I even returned the unit in exchange for a new one, and the problem persists.

                  Setup was pretty easy. We can't figure out how to load Amazon Prime. That's really frustrating.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  We purchased this with a new TV and requested ABT delivery. They shipped it UPS and then wanted to charge $50 extra for setup. So we had to figure out how to set it up ourselves. We could have gone to a big box store for that! Disappointing.

                      The unit is small which is one thing I needed. The features are what I was looking for in a unit with respect to what I wanted to pay. It was ease to set up. You can't ask more of a product. Thank you LG

                              It loads much more quickly than the previous player we had. There were some problems when we first got it, though they could have been the result of the cold. LG helped get it straightened out in no time, and now it works well.

                                  Player is easy to use and has good playback of DVDs, Bluray and 3D discs. It does however have an annoying icon that pops up randomly during disc playback. I have not been able to figure out how to get rid of it. It seems to be related to WiFi. I have not been able to find anything in the support center that would fix this.

                                      Machine is great when it works. Nice apps, too. However, it completely freezes up with some regularity and requires that I unplug the unit to make it work again, so I can't recommend it. I keep checking for software updates, hoping for some kind of bug fix. None available that I've found. I've not had that problem with my first (and much cheaper) BD player or my DVD players.

                                          I bought this model mostly for watching recorded shows on my d-link server connected to my home network. I still have another LG model BP530 which works great. So I needed another one but BP530 is no longer available. After I connected BD530 I realized that it displays me some files I deleted a long time ago. When I tried to play some of the existing files it hangs and the only way to wake it up is to either unplug or click on the eject button. This one goes back to the store. Did not test internet features because the only feature I need is DLNA
