LG BX580 3D Blu-ray Player - Tried, Tested and Enjoyed


The LG BX580 3D Blu-ray player was sent to us by LG a while back when we were testing their mammoth-sized 55-inch LX9500 TV, and I've been using this very Blu-ray player to test all the other TVs and monitors that have come in. It's fair to say it has...

Absolute waste of money


We have had this system for 12 months which we purchased from the Good Guys for $399 , but never had a digital TV to go with it and thought that's why the words never matched up with the sound. We recently brought a HDMI digital TV and the words still...

Won't play DVD's and the sound dosn't match up to the words spoken on the digitalTV.

Not bad!


Considering the price, this is not a bad system at all and certainly it is performing better than expected. For those on a tight budget, go for it, you won't be disappointed.
