LG HR599D Twin HD Recorder / Blu-ray Disc Combo

 

The LG HR599D is a high-definition HDD recorder with a 500GB hard drive, twin digital HD television tuners and the ability to play Blu-ray discs. The ...

Twin HD tuners, plenty of inbuilt storage, integrated Wi-Fi, user-friendly interface, great HD video performance

Prohibitively expensive, no AV inputs, poor editing functionality

The LG HR599D Twin HD Recorder / Blu-ray Disc Combo is a good option for watching Blu-ray movies and recording TV shows in high-definition. On the downside, its editing capabilities are quite limited.

LG's all-in-one media player works superbly, but it would want to for this kind of money.

Blu-ray player ; DLNA player ; Dual-tuner PVR ; Slick menu structure ; Ethernet or 802.11n

Some error messages are poorly phrased ; Single-channel EPG display only ; Rather expensive

For the most part, the HR599D works well and delivers a nice suite of AV functions, but it's not exactly cheap. It's a worthwhile consideration for the simplicity it offers alone. At full price it feels a little expensive for our tastes.

An Unfriendly PVR

 

I have a 5402,so was expecting that this would have had all the good features of the 5402 with lots of extras. Sadly disappointed.Looks like LG got some new people in to do the firmware and forgot to tell them about what a PVR should do. The fast...

Looks OK- but you can hardly see the time when it is off.

Slow fast forward & rewind,many concerns

"Liked the old LG PVR, this one is terrible"

 

I have the 5403P which is excellent and that is why when I decided to upgrade I looked first at the LG HD599D as I assumed that the latest PVR would be an improvement ...I was wrong!

Blue-ray Player / Can copy to / view external device

Bad Interface, Slow to start, Flakey

What a heap of junk!

Nothing

No multi channel tv guide, Subtitles turn on and off on their own. I think its haunted

basically everything about the EPG and recording processes is BAD. It is hard to add time at the end of programs, so you routinely miss the last 10 mins. It interupts the show you are watching when a scheduled recording event activates, why, dont...

looks good & features promise a lot

The Software is horrible

First foray with a PVR and it has been very easy. Also purchased a Pioneer receiver which gives it great sound. Easy setup and use without little use of manual. I haven't had any problems like some of the other reviewers. Family find it easy to use...

Easy to use

Bit expensive

Consumer review by:

LG HR599D

 

I want to like this unit but the start up is so slow and some basic convenient things are missing such as volume control and mute. It also default starts to the main menu and I haven't been able to work out how to default start to TV.

Functions, Youtube, good reception

Slow startup, can't default to TV on startup, no volume control, no mute

I had high hopes for the HR599D but after a few months and yes - dealing with LG support, I cannot badmouth this unit enough. It resets / reboots randomly, on occasion requires reconfig of wireless network settings. Set an EPG record, you're lucky to...

Setup? Each time it does an involuntary reset

Almost everything
