This is a fantastic Blu Ray player (and DVD player). The price is a little too much, but the quality is still great. It plays everything that you would expect a normal blu ray player to play, as well as MKV files etc. It works really fast and LG have always been reliable for durable quality. Had mine for about 4 months now and see no problems with it. Throughout these months I have also found that it is super easy to use and have had no problems navigating around the menus and home pages. I can also see great amounts of resolution quality from the device and the setup was really easy also (although this is now typical of the devices, it's still a great quality to see). In addition, when booting up, the load time for the device is very fast taking seconds to load and begin reading a disc.
With all these amazing qualities, you can find it's also versatile as it plays music and enables you to watch movies from streaming sites such as Netflix and LoveFilm (with further streaming from Youtube also).
If I had to give anything negative to say (besides the slightly unreasonable price?... The buttons are fairly pathetic as they are made from a plastic/foam material that feels very cheap in comparison with the product)
I would definitely recommend this product to a friend, provided that they're willing to wait a little and just see if the price comes down a bit first.

This is far from the best blu ray player on the market - that's going to be the main point of this review, but let's start with a few positives first.
It is light-weight and very easy to connect providing you have a HDMI input in your television - it literally takes a matter of seconds. I have three televisions in my house but only one blue ray player - this one - so I am quite often moving this blu ray player around to different rooms and connecting it to different TVs - this is why it being lightweight and easy to connect is a good point for me. The picture quality is what you would expect, and the remote is easy to use, and it does exactly what a blu ray player should do - it plays blu rays.
But there are negatives. First all, the price - this unit is quite overpriced in my opinion. You can get blu ray players that are quite a lot cheaper than this that do the exact same job just as well. And I don't think you're getting that much more for the extra money you pay - for one thing, it's not as though this blu ray player is exceptionally well made. The buttons are a big issue - they're very flimsy, made of light squashy plastic. The eject button has already broken on mine - pushed in, so there's now a hole where it used to be and I have to rely on the remote. The other buttons are designed the same as this, so I don't think it'll be long before the same thing happens to them.
So, to summarise - if you want a blu ray player, find one either a bit cheaper or a bit better made than this one. Over and out.
