LG BP420 review


The LG BP420 3D Blu-ray player is a fast-loading Smart disc spinner that punches above its weight thanks to its slick design and Smart TV services

Solid internet TV offerings ; Excellent multimedia playback ; Hi-def video performance

No integrated Wi-Fi ; Lightweight build quality

Proof positive that there's no need to slum it even when the budget's tight, the LG BP420 is a pucker Blu-ray bargain. It looks neat, with its squared off corners and glossy fascia, while beneath the lid lurks a fast-loading, well appointed player.

LG BP420


A Blu-ray player that offers good playback quality and great Smart TV apps at a budget price.

Great user interface makes it easy to use, Good selection of Smart TV apps, Strong 2D and 3D picture quality

Can’t add premium apps to the shortcut bar, Can be a tad sluggish for media streaming and using Smart TV apps

LG BP420


The sound and picture could be more refined, but the LG BP420 delivers decent performance and is enjoyable to use

Decent picture and texture, with vibrant colour and deep blacks; very user-friendly, plenty of online content

Could do with more detail definition and less motion blurring; not the best sound, thanks to some weakness in the midrange

Easy to use, Plug and Play,Delighted with unit

Opening the Load and unloading Draw is quite noisey, something the design team need to look at

Great DVD


Bought as a pressie for my husband to go with his new 3d tv. Very pleased with the DVD. Old DVDs that are not blueray have a much better picture quality. Great DVD, highly recommend.
