LG BP530 review

 

You can get a lot of Blu-ray player for under $100 these days, including built-in Wi-Fi and a full suite of streaming-media services to supplement your disc-playing needs.

The LG BP530 offers a fine selection of streaming services, built-in Wi-Fi, and decent disc playback. It also features subtle styling and a well-laid-out remote and is easy to use, despite some user interface clutter.

Netflix loads particularly slowly. The neat Private Listening feature only works with discs, not apps, and isn't reliable. And there are minor image quality issues for picky viewers.

The LG BP530 has built-in Wi-Fi and a good selection of apps, but there are just enough quirks to keep it from being a top Blu-ray player pick.

"Not Recommended!!"

 

Not recommended.:( I purchased this unit 1 week & 1 day ago to replace my older model LG BX580 (Which is only 2 years & 1 week old) because my old one got a DVD disc stuck inside & it will not read anything. This machine has done exactly the same...

When it does work good picture - never got to try 3D as after 1 week & 1 day machine doesn't work!

Disc fall off tray into machine

"Do not buy: not working even after exchange."

 

After exchange, some of the same problems exist. It is still skipping randomly. It stopped completely once. My expectations for today are more of the same problems.

Can't think of any

Skipped randomly throughout shows on Netflix, DVD, and Blu Ray.

"Don't buy this BluRay."

 

Like the set-up and on screen menu.

Software is damaged, constantly drops you from the wireless router. Like the set-up and on screen menu. Bought two machines both had software problems, LG is aware of the problem.

Amazing at the price I bought it

 

At first glance, this DVD player looked no more special than any other typical one out there. Setting up was a breeze. As I was using my own LG branded HDTV, I would've hoped so too. The features of this device are pretty good however not all will be...

Excellent

 

Very easy setup ; Fast boot up time ; Beautiful picture ; Easy to setup wireless or using a wired lan

Wireless a little slow to connect sometimes, but this issue may be due to the ATT U-verse router and the fact that we have both the Blu-ray player and the wireless DirecTV genie sitting together
