LG BP530 review

 

You can get a lot of Blu-ray player for under $100 these days, including built-in Wi-Fi and a full suite of streaming-media services to supplement your disc-playing needs.

The LG BP530 offers a fine selection of streaming services, built-in Wi-Fi, and decent disc playback. It also features subtle styling and a well-laid-out remote and is easy to use, despite some user interface clutter.

Netflix loads particularly slowly. The neat Private Listening feature only works with discs, not apps, and isn't reliable. And there are minor image quality issues for picky viewers.

The LG BP530 has built-in Wi-Fi and a good selection of apps, but there are just enough quirks to keep it from being a top Blu-ray player pick.

An easy-to-use, but sluggish, Blu-ray player

 

The LG BP530 isn't the speediest player on the block but it offers good playback and a large selection of apps.

Junk

 

BASICALLY ONLY USEFUL AS A BLUE RAY PLAYER!!!But what do you expect for the price.YouTube is barley functional, the player keeps signing you out forcing you to go to the computer and entering a code, similar issues with NetFlix the player constantly...

Works But Has Poor Remote

 

The player seems to work in every mode; however the remote is very poorly designed. The problem is with its power. The remote takes only one AAA battery and must be pointed directly at the unit with nothing in the way to be able to work. I don't know...

Inexpensive but you get what you pay for.

 

Extremely basic model with limited connectivity. Good bang for the buck though.

This device is great for the price. The only problem I have is trying to figure out how to delete an app after downloading :)

Great Product

 

Everything it was advertised to be. I especially love the fact that I can update its firmware online through the player.
