LG BD550 review

 

If you have Ethernet connectivity in your living room, the smart move is to go with an entry-level Blu-ray player. Most such players available in 2010 offer much of the functionality of step-up models, minus built-in Wi-Fi. That's the case with the LG...

Excellent Blu-ray image quality; Netflix, Vudu, YouTube, Pandora, and CinemaNow streaming; plays music, videos, and pictures off a connected USB drive; relatively quick load times compared with other entry-level Blu-ray players.

No DLNA compatibility, so you can't stream digital media from a networked computer; user interface is overdesigned; no onboard storage; must manually change the output mode to 1080p.

Quick load times, excellent Blu-ray image quality, and a generous suite of streaming services make the LG BD550 a solid entry-level Blu-ray player.

LG's BD550 produces decent images and sound and can be networked to take advantage of BD-Live features — just so long as you don't mind laying some Ethernet cable.

LG BD550 Blu-ray Player Reviewed

 

LG plans to add four new models to its Blu-ray line this year. At the low end of the price spectrum is the BD550 ($229.99), which lacks the 3D support, integrated hard drive, and WiFi-readiness you'll find in the higher-priced models. But you do get...

The BD550 supports 1080p/24 playback of Blu-ray discs ; The player has internal decoding and bitstream output of high-resolution audio sources ; It supports BD-Live Web content and can play picture-in-picture bonus content ; The NetCast Web platform...

The BD550 lacks multichannel analog audio outputs, so it's not the best choice for someone who owns an older, non-HDMI A/V receiver ; The player does not have built-in WiFi or internal storage for BD-Live ; It also lacks an advanced control port like...

Even though LG lists the BD550's price at $229.99, this Blu-ray player is actually available for well under $200 at major retailers, and its list of features is generally on par with other players in that price class. Moving up the price chain in LG's...

LG BD550

 

The LG BD 550 is LG's new entry level model similar in features to the BD570 except for the lack of Wi-Fi capabilities. It features a sleek crystal-edge design; smooth 1080p 24/60hz high-def video and high resolution 192khz surround sound for an...

As an entry level player sub $200 player, the LG BD550 sure packs in a host of features that will satisfy and perhaps overwhelm the first time user. At this price point it will win a lot of converts to the world high definition entertainment.

LG BD550

 

The built in USB port is the main selling point. As it allows you to view pictures, play mp3 or watch movie files from a flash drive. It does support quite a few formats. When connected with an LG tv ( as i have ) can control using one remote rather...

I saw these priced well under £50 sometime ago but since this model is no longer made ? Along with the USB port has helped push the price up on this popular model. A bit slow when first switched on as it loads the menu options and detecting to see if a...
