|IS IT A BLU-RAY™ PLAYER? OR SOMETHING BETTER?|
If you want stunning Full HD 1080p and the unlimited possibilities of entertainment access, you've found it with the BD650 Network Blu-ray Disc Player. With Smart TV Access you get thousands of movies, Apps, shows and online videos straight to your TV from your wireless Internet connection at home. This is a Blu-ray player that delivers the best in HD, while setting your entertainment free in more ways than one.Get LG at its best
I've had this unit for about a month now. I agree with the other reviewers that state that they released this product too soon, without the proper software in place and tested. For instance, up until a few days ago, I constantly had problems with it loosing it's connection to the internet, even when it was connected via ethernet cord. However, since an automatic firmware update a couple of days ago, the player has worked flawlessly via the WiFi connection. (Please note: with the 650, you DO need the separate WiFi dongle, which plugs into the back of the machine). The last firmware update also added several new apps, such as Amazon VOD. It appears that new apps will be added in the coming months, including a web-browsing app, which I read about previously online (search for info. from the launch of LG's entire SmartTV product line to find this information). The Netflix application is easy to use and fast. It also allows you to update your instant queue. The Blu Ray function is fast-loading and I haven't had any problems. Good upscaling of DVD's as well. Overall, I give the unit a 4/5 stars based on it's current performance and previous software glitches.
Not a good BD player7/17/2011
1. Netflix app is good.. streaming and search options are great. 2.Youtube streaming sucks. Not capable of signing in to youtube account. Keying the letters is horrible. 3. Response is too slow. 4. Lacks lot of Apps. LG smart TV doesn't have any good apps comapred to Samsung BD's I do not recommend buying this product
