Performance

The good: Almost magical upsampling of DVDs. Reads mkv files on DVD data discs. Streams Netflix, etc. well. AVCHD discs are handled flawlessly. The bad. Network only uses 802.11n 2.4. I live in a rowhouse with lots of neighbors using wireless so had my LAN set at 5. So to use my shiny new BD player, I had to dumb down my LAN. The Hard Drive is formatted in FAT 32 which puts a 4 gig limit on files--which makes it pretty much worthless for video files that run from 4.3 to 15 gigs. You CAN put this player on your LAN and it will find whatever folders you want it to find on your mother computer BUT this wireless connection is not fast enough to stream a movie. For that, you need a hard ethernet connection (which ain't gonna happen at our house!)

I've had this for only about 2 weeks and it was a breeze to set up. I had Vude, Pandora, etc. set up in about 10 minutes using wireless. It recognized my IP address within a minute. I haven't used it much to really say it is perfect but for what I have used it, it is great. I would recomment it to anyone.

Worth the wait

by Scott on 11/14/2010

Having held off getting a player, this LG with all of it's functions- upscaling DVDs and 250 GB of storage at the top- was worth the wait. I searched through reviews and spedifications of many blu-ray players, before deciding on this one; the CNET editor's choice as well.The startup time is fine to me; even though we are in a 'now' world; it doesn't take long, really.

Its not a BD-390...

by CIFSisYourFriend on 12/7/2010

Yes this is a great BD player. It has LG's netcast and most important - homelink. However, the codecs on the 390 handled a wider range of video formats. The 250GB HDD is nice, but I dont really have a use for it. The built in wireless b/g/n is nice, but I dont think the wifi can handle 1080p formatted files. In short, if you have a NAS device or plan on getting one and have lots of Ripped BD's or DVD's, this unit offs more than two birds with one stone. Read More
