Ease of setup is AWESOME! Wifi is no hassle at all. This is my 4th BD player from LG. ALL of them work great. 3 of them cover both my bedrooms and family room. The 4th works fine but was upgraded to a 540 due to the online programs availability. The only personal drawback to all of them is the remote. I don't like the remote navigation buttons. The center circular pattern is almost universal throughout remotes, My hands are rather small for a man. One would think I would have no trouble using the remote, however, those 5 buttons are placed so it is easy to press more than 1 button which renders your desired action to not be accomplished correctly. The players interact with my LG TV just fine. I would like to see the the remote remodeled to afford more positive control over which button is pushed.

I purchased the lg BP550 Blu-Ray Player and I regret spending the Money. The player keeps LOCKING up to where you can only click on setup. It is connected to the internet but keeps asking for updates then fails to load the updates. It will not take manual updates from a flash drive. It is nothing more than a energy using paper weight.

Not what I expected
from High Point, NC, United States
Comments about LG 3D Capable Blu-Ray Disc Player With Smart TV:
I brought this player a few months ago, at 1st I was using it for is Blu ray system. I have recently been using the APPS on the player, they work fine as long as you are viewing the,. Once you turn off it's the same procedure over and over again. I have to reconnect to the WIFI every time I cut the player on. Now my HULU is not operating at all. There is not a way to reset the HULU app on the drive.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought mine so I could have Netflix in my bedroom. It works great. It also plays DVDs wonderfully AND I can view programs that I have on my USB flash drive.
Missing key streaming services...
from Seattle, WA, United States
Got this about a month ago, and was kinda expecting a better selection i guess, i keep waiting for that "coming soon" sign in premium content to go away and hopefully be replaced with plex... the DLNA server works, but not always, and not with all types of media. this thing seriously needs a dedicated app for plex. Do you hear me LG... P L E X, PLEX!!
from Springfield, MA, United States
Got this bp550 last week for my birthday and I haven't had one issue with it movie playback is fantastic especially with 3D bluray movies I don't use the apps as I have the LG 60lb7100 that I use for Netflix and hulu plus... But over all its the best bluray player....
Features are great
from Bellingham, WA, United States
I love how the netflix is much easier to use than the older LG I have.
Disc playing fine all other features very poor
Bought this and setup within one hour I'm returning... Wi-Fi receiver is poor so signal is low even close to router, dlna detects your servers but doesn't load any film regardless of "accepted formats crashed twice in the hour and because of poor Wi-Fi on demand services such as Netflix are all but useless very dissapointed LG
Works Great, no problems streaming Not enough Apps
from Los Angeles, CA, United States
Need to add Flixter and Ultraviolet to the apps listing. I have Hundreds of Digital Movies on these and so do many of my friends. Very Disappointing
from Texas, United States
I was given this gift and I was very excited. So far the YouTube feature and watching DVDs Works wonderfully. The netflix however is awful. It buffers constantly I can't get even a minute of uninterrupted show. Where as on my other device (Wii) Netflix plays with zero faulty. As I type this my screen has frozen all together.
from Philadelphia, PA, United States
I bought this player four months ago to add smart features to my non-smart tv. I am reluctant to say that it has been disappointing. I use Netflix and Pandora and have experienced frequent loss of wi-fi connection, on an otherwise stable home network. This loss happens more frequently while Pandora buffers a new set of songs. I have tried streaming music from my other two computers in the home and it is sluggish making a connection and in response time, but does work. And like others, I resolve my screen freeze/locking up issue by pulling the power cable which thankfully is easily available and not buried inside an entertainment center. LG needs to work more diligently to resolve these issues. SW Version BD23.958.50908.c reported as up-to-date. Recommended with caution to shop around.
