LG BP420 review


The LG BP420 proves you don't have to slum it when the Blu-ray budget's tight

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

No integrated Wi-Fi ; Lightweight build quality

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 review


Easy to use and enjoyable to watch, but sound could be better

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

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

LG BP420 3D Smart Blu-ray Player Review


3D Smart Blu-ray Player

Spotless Blu-ray playback ; Excellent DVD scaling ; All round superb video processing ; Impressive build quality ; Loads of Smart features ; Clean and simple menu system

Some noise from disc mechanism ; DVD load times could be faster ; Front panel buttons detract from design a little

Got this product off laptops direct for the half the price than that in the shops. Havent yet used the smart apps but the 3D option is amazing... brings the film to life. Would definitely recommend

LG BP420


Amazing range of features in a small size ; Comprehensive range of disk formats ; Easy setup of network connection and media streaming from several servers

Shallow depth so restricts location amongst a pile of other hi-fi equipment ; Could do with more flexibility in the way files from media servers are presented
