LG LHB953 review: LG LHB953



Built-in Blu-ray player; 5.1 home theater system; solid sound quality; excellent image quality on Blu-ray movies; Netflix, Pandora, YouTube, and CinemaNow streaming; fast Blu-ray load times; slick pull-out iPod dock.

Competing Samsung sounds better, although it's more expensive; exterior design is lackluster, though functionally sound; no video inputs; no automatic speaker calibration; LG provides no wireless rear speaker option.

The LG LHB953 combines Blu-ray, tons of streaming media content, and solid AV quality into an all-in-one home theater system that scores high on the value quotient.

Review Of The LG LHB953 – Home Audio


The  LHB953 is one the best systems on the market  to handle streaming content options--Netflix, Pandora, YouTube, and CinemaNow augment its disc-playing capabilities with finesse. It also performs basic functions with great ease and comfort.Razzle-...

Built-in Blu-ray player; 5.1 home theater system; astounding sound & image quality; quick loading times ; slick pull-out iPod dock; Netflix, Pandora, YouTube, and CinemaNow streaming

Design is drab, the Samsung sounds better although the LG is cheaper, no video inputs, no wireless rear speaker option

The LG LHB953 has a lot to offer and is definitely worth your money. Good sound & video quality packed with astounding features, what more do you want? Go ahead give it a shot.

Amazing system at an amazing price


Netflix looks great and works great, though I like the XBox 360's Netflix implementation better - it's easier to navigate and allows you to browse movies other than your queue. Still, this system is always on and the XBox is not, so we usually stream...

There's nothing I've found about this system that I haven't liked! It's got everything - great video quality, great sound quality, Blu-ray, Netflix, Pandora, Youtube

A couple of the features could be slightly better - see the in-depth thoughts below - but nothing major

No more LG for me


Just more thoughts on LG products. I had an LG computer monitor die on me last week. I was amazed to find that it had a 3 year parts and labor warranty!! I was even more amazed that I had purchased it 3 years and 2 WEEKS earlier. (wonder how they...

Fairly easy set up, Sound OK

Had unit for 29 days and remote stopped working. Did everything suggested, changed batteries, cofirmed light in remote was working (by seeing IR light through camera), reset unit according to user manual and instructions of Cust Serv rep., confirmed...

Don't forget to buy HDMI cable - home theater comes without it.

amazing for price


knocked pictures off walls in living room 4 rooms away with volume on 15 not quite sure how high the volume goes but 15 is hardly 1/4 of the volume bar so possibly 50 or so, watched inglorious bast*rds on blu ray, when the theater exploded so did my...

blu ray system under $500, loud, incredible picture, good sound quality, ipod dock is fully compatible with iphone 3g unlike most other things that have the made for ipod works with iphone label that will give u the message saying its not compatible....

cheap speaker wire that comes with, but you can replace and use whatever you want on all the speakers except the sub because its hardwired into the sub box, comes with cheap quality component cable, upgrade to hdmi cable for amazing picture

Absolutely Amazing!!


Have not yet used the iPod dock or Netflix / CinemaNow features, but I hear highly of them from other people. Overall, this is an amazing unit (at an even more amazing price) that I recommend to anyone. Blu-ray and 5.1 surround (along with all other...

Everything. Full HD for your HDTV, amazing sound quality from the speakers, LAN connection for Netflix / Pandora / Youtube, iPod dock, disc drive will support just about everything. If you have an LG TV, the "simplink" feature will make your life easy...

All of my video inputs go straight to the TV, and sound gets fed back to the player through optical audio and that's all I need--so the lack of inputs that other people speak of is true, but far from discouraging. The only bad thing I can say about...

Boom Boom


To connect to the internet you do need a wired connection. I have a router upstairs and wasn't going to run wires everywhere so I bought a repeater/router (N82E16833166044) and was able to connect it to my exsiting router wireless and connect it to to...

Plays burned blurays but I think all players do. Sound is great with a lot of options. Pandora is sweet running through this baby

More input/outputs? Play mkv files? Actually it might I haven't tried yet, but I doubted

Nice piece of equipment!


Another reviewer said that it did not have Yahoo and Youtube capability as the LG web site said. However, if you connect it to the Internet and run the software update then you will get Youtube and CinemaNow capability (though no Yahoo video).

Netflix, Blu-Ray, iPod cradle, and tons of other features. What's not to like? Sounds good, looks good, works well, and the unit itself is pretty quiet. I am quite happy with this purchase

Doesn't seem to work with my iPod Photo. :( Guess it's time to upgrade to something newer ; Not auto-on at all, takes about 20-30 seconds to come on. This is a problem if you want to quickly tune in to cable with your TV's audio routed through this...
