The price isn't right for LG's flagship Blu-ray deck

Attractive feature list, Magic Remote operation, Superb pictures and slick DLNA performance

Plasticky build quality, No 4OD, ITV Player or Demand Five, Overpriced

A much-improved flagship effort from LG this year, but it still needs some work to really rival the best

Stylish design ; Good features ; Sharp Blu-ray picture ; Convincing 3D performance ; Good interface ; Competitive Smart content
