Aside from the Toshiba 46L5200U we recently reviewed, most upper-tier TVs come with 3D capability whether we want it or not. If you want outstanding picture quality and sleek cabinetry, you will probably need to buy a 3D TV. So, until the consumer...

Super-quick boot and disc-load times ; Uncluttered GUI ; Rich assortment of Internet apps ; Snappy response time

No Amazon Instant Video app ; Remote not backlit ; Case construction is flimsy ; App interface is unintuitive at times

LG’s BP620 may not ooze the high-end appeal of much more expensive Blu-ray players, but it delivers where it counts...

The LG BP620 has built-in Wi-Fi, 3D compatibility, and LG's Smart TV suite of streaming-media services, which includes Netflix, Hulu Plus, Pandora, and Vudu. The user interface for the Smart TV services is the best on any Blu-ray player this year.

The BP620 lacks Amazon Instant streaming, and several other services (MLB.TV, MOG) aren't available yet. The remote doesn't have dedicated buttons for Netflix or to jump right to the Smart TV services. And the step-down BP320 is a slightly better deal...

If you want 3D, the LG BP620 has most of the right features, but the absence of Amazon Instant and a dedicated Netflix button hurt its value a bit.

After my experience with the LG BD690 last year, I wasn’t exactly looking forward to auditioning the BP620. Thankfully, it hasn’t given me any trouble and is a great budget player with some minor flaws. Its clunky interface, middling DVD performance,...

LG BP620 3D Blu-ray player

 

LG's top 3D Blu-ray player has the Smarts we've been looking for

Quick to respond to inputs ; Simple but attractive and intuitive interface ; Excellent range of features and apps

No rear USB port ; Some interface niggles

As 3D, Smart Blu-ray players go, the LG BP620 is one of the best. It’s not especially expensive, it’s got all the features we want, and it’s generally easy to use and quick to operate. Apart from a few small issues with the interface, we found the...

LG's BP620 3D Blu-ray player offers tons of features for a modest price.

Impressive picture quality ; Good range of Smart apps ; Excellent user interface

Could be more responsive when dealing with Smart apps ; Doesn't allow you to add Premium apps to the shortcut menu

The user interface is one of the slickest and easiest to use that you'll find on any Blu-ray player. When the player starts up it presents you with the home page that shows large, colourful icons against a metallic-effect background. Across the middle...

"Good enough!"

 

Faster load times than others owned previous.

Sound is so so.

Consumer review by:

"Good value for the price."

 

If you try to play a disc with only a DTS soundtrack and your A/V receiver has Dolby Digital but not DTS decoder, you will get no audio though the bitstream coax/optical outputs.

Video quality, Netflix steaming.

* Remote control buttons and functions are poorly organized.
