LG BP620

 

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.

The SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) requires mutual fund companies to tell investors that a fund's past performance does not necessarily predict future results—and the same could be said of Blu-ray players. In the case of LG, I've had the...

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,...

"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.

Best blueray player eva

everything

slow sometimes

Consumer review by:

"Blu-Ray works fine... online is speedy with Wireless N"

 

The unit is an overall good buy... but if the files you want to stream from your PC are of an AVI format, you will have to convert them with something like "FormatFactory" or "Handbrake", or find out how to create a streaming, transcoding format for a...

Nice size footprint... easy to use interface, Crisp picture, Easy setup. Video streaming is smooth...

Although the Video streaming is good, the device won't render AVI files. Which many people have, so you have to convert or find a server like Serviio. This however needs an XML profile for it, and as a non-programmer I cannot make.
