LG BP530


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.:(

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.

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

Lemon and very disappointing


I purchased this as a discounted sale item from a daily sale. Now I know why it was discounted. I set it up and couldn't get a picture. I tried all of the troubleshooting tips but still couldn't get it to work. I even tried more than one HDMI cable to...

Didn't last


I bought this DVD player because I have always had confidence in LG brands. Because of that, I did not purchase a warranty. I am sorry that I didn't. After the initial return period, it began acting up. Freezing, or not loading a DVD, all while making...
