Consumer review by: TechnicianX123 (



Working in ASC LG would have to have the best after sale service compared to all the other brands. They send parts in within 2 days on most occasions. The website, PN and models are very organized. From a technicians view I would defiantly buy an LG....

This unit has an easy to use setup menu. The HDD recording makes it easy to record live TV.

The buttons are mounted on the top of the unit this can cause the unit to fault and open and close and other faults. LG DVD players do have a slightly high fail rate compared to other brands but this is justified by their cheaper prices. New LG...

Would not buy LG as their products seem to only last 3 years.Worth paying a bit more for something that will last longer.Wasn't too bad when it worked properly and could do with a quick copy to DVD feature in future models if thinking of buying this...

Parent's find it easy to program.

DVD player stopped reading DVDs after 3 years.Was in for service in first year for hard drive freezing.Harddrive replaced,firmware reflashed.Since out of warranty took lid off to see if I could replace DVD drive as it is nearly same size as a standard...

Absolute waste of money.!! Spends more times in repair shop than in use. Very disappointed with LG and will never purchase another product of theirs again.

HDD recording great, beats the old VCR

After 12 months laser went on DVD player and wouldn't read any DVDs. After spending 6-7 weeks in local service centre it played fine but after 3 months the same thing is happening again so its back to the shop again, no wonder they give you 3 years...

-After just 14 months the unit is pretty much dead. -Renaming recorded titles is a pain. -Remote is sporadic. -Edited media is burnt in real time; eg if you edit out commercial from a record program and the remaining is 2 hours, it will take 2 hours to...

Great device when it works. Easy to use. Hard drive is great.

Just like all the others, at about 14 months it started to play up when reading DVDs. Now wont play DVDs, cant burn DVDs, and menus are freeze and the machine locks up. I/O board is failing and is almost unusable.

After 14 months of use, the I/O board failed and had to be replaced. Then 3 months later, the HDD has failed (and lost all my recordings!) and I am now waiting for it to be replaced. I now have NO confidence in this unit - even if the HDD is fixed this...

Here's what I originally liked about this unit (before it went cactus, 17 months after I got it!): able to record heaps of shows from TV and watch them later. The interface is easy to use, recording with the timer is really simple, so is editing out...

The process for renaming shows once recorded is annoying and time-consuming, as you have to cycle through letter-by-letter. The recorder has no memory for frequently-used titles. Dealing with LG when I needed repairs done is a pain in the neck. They...

I have this dvd player 14 months in that time I have had the Deck Assembly replaced twice. (main component)It starts of freezing the dvd's then it wont read some DVD, then it won't recognise any disc. The unit was at the repairers about 4-5 weeks...

like the recording features on the HD

unreliable when it comes to playing DVD. The quality of the playback off the HD is not the best either

Good product when it works. Have tried to call LG customer service but to no avail on hold for 30 mins+ twice now. Advice to others don't even bother even calling the 1800 number, email them from the LG Australia website. Still awaiting a reply. Hope...

Easy interface, good quality picture.

On music cd playback the sound constantly starts and stops for up to a second every minute or so, very annoying. Also remote control sometimes doesn't work and takes 5 or 6 gos for it to do the desired function.

I love this product and have not had any problems with it since I got it about 6 months ago... oh, except that it is helping me indulge in watching way too much television! ;)

I can record heaps of shows from TV and watch them when I like. The interface is easy to use, recording with the timer is really simple, so is editing out the advertisements. It is SO much better than a VCR. I used this recorder when I house-sat at a...

Can't self-install a larger HDD without voiding the warranty, which means I have to wait out the 3 years before I can put a bigger HDD in. The process for renaming shows once recorded is annoying and time-consuming, as you have to cycle through...
