LG BP550 3D Blu-ray Player Reviewed

 

Adrienne Maxwell checks out LG's BP550, a 3D-capable Blu-ray player with built-in Wi-Fi, Music Flow support, and smart apps like Netflix, VUDU, and more.

The BP550 powers up and loads discs very quickly, and it responds quickly to remote commands ; The menu system is well designed and easy to navigate. So is the remote ; This "smart" player includes access to big-name apps like Netflix, YouTube, VUDU,...

File playback over DLNA was slow and finicky, especially over Wi-Fi but also using a wired connection ; Apps like Netflix and YouTube don't load as quickly as they do through the best dedicated streaming media players. Neither the LG remote nor the...

A good machine overall

 

Overall I am very pleased with the DVD player. It was an easy set up and the assistance given by LG is beyond approach. Only minor problem is that at times the machine disconnects and I have to unplug it and replug it for it to work.

Performance, easy to use

BP550 freezes repeatedly

 

When selecting the icons at the bottom of the screen, or selecting the 'premium' icon I get the black screen with the red circle (meaning the unit is thinking) then ti goes back to where I started. It does this about 90% of the time.

This product is easy to use.

 

This is the first smart TV product I have owned. With the wifi it could be better being able to add and remove premium features.

Best $90 I ever spent.

 

I have not tested the 3D capabilities yet. Awaiting to get a 3D TV!

EVERYTHING about this is AWESOME! Remote only uses 1 AAA battery. I got this because I have loads of movies on my external HDD that is connected to my network. I LOVE to have all the movies at my finger tips. If you have tons of movies and want to...

Very Good Unit

 

So far this device has exceeded my expectations. I got it for wireless connection in the bedroom for Netflix, You-Tube, etc. Not only does it connect for those very well, but it also sees the shares on my home network and plays MKV and MP4 movies on...

Sometimes it will lose signal abruptly from network. But as is with all networks, a reset of the router will restore connection no problem
