LG DN898


While Blu-ray players are becoming more affordable, for the price-conscious consumer, a decent DVD player with upconversion is all you really need. With this DVD player from LG, you have all you need to watch your movie library in style, and more. This...

Good Product


Upscales to 1080p fine which is why I bought it in the first place. I would have liked to have seen a more sturdy door, it's very flimsy and probably will be the first thing to break. Don't let kids load DVDs in this player, they could break that door...

Upscales to 1080p. Has both coax and optical audio outputs which is kind of rare these days. HDMI and component

Flimsy door. Small read out

Poor quality


Looks nice

The item was delivered, inoperative. It is not readly apparent as to whether the issue should be with the manufacture or the seller? The product was returned to the seller with slow return, totaly unreasonable

Not Impressed


Would I buy this again? Emphatically NO! But I cannot exchange it so I am stuck with it, It will end up being passed down to someone who needs one. (should have stuck with the same brand it replaced)

It works.

1. In comparison to the DVD player that it replaced, the sound was not nearly as good. I have a premium receiver and speakers and this unit did not produce the soundstage like my previous player. There was definitely no musical separation like the old...

Pricey, but good.


Nice design and features, gret picture quality. A bit pricey compared to other brands. Had everything I needed: HDMI, 1080P, sleek design.

Somewhat sluggish going through menu items, but not such a big deal. No other problems!

Good Unit For The Price


Bought unit for a copying source, so havn't used a lot of the features offered. One neat feature usally offered only on premeium machines is the USB input - I'd like to try using it, but hesitate breaking the cover door to insert the USB plug/device, &...

Great Player for the Price


The only thing I would like to see is the ability to change the timer in the display window to a countdown timer, rather than solely an in progress timer. Other than that, can't beat the price and the features.

Great DVD player for non Blue Ray


We have used this product 3 or 4 times so far and it has been excellent. I would recommend this product if you can't or don't want to spend the money on a Blue Ray player. We have a 1080I HD TV and even though we don't have the GOOD HDMI cable yet the...
