Lan extender required


Good picture, but no upscaling that I can detect

Fantastic for price


A fantastic blu-ray player for the price. Nice slim profile, quick startup time, and great picture quality for both blu-ray discs and upscaling of DVDs. Network playback is great too -- I've used instant video -- both had great playback quality. Hard...

Quite slow


It works and is low cost

It is quite slow at startup and reading discs, it makes you think it is non responsive, you have to sit and wait for it ; The buttons are cheap feeling and hard to push

I'm impressed for the price.


Go with a higher model for home networking and before you buy look into what is required for streaming HD video over your network. You may find yourself under powered and outdated.

Has usb support that will play MOST videos and music right off the internet. Online connectivity including youtube and movie streaming

Would have liked to see some home networking capabilities

Great product


You must use a wired network connection (no wireless) but for the price and the quality its well worth it.

Works very well. Nice, simple, clean menu. Netflix works great with very good menus. Also plays my home-made Blu-Ray and DVDs flawlessly

Wait until price below $100

With HDMI connection, don't use anything else, the picture and sound are terrific with DVD's. Moreover, easy to set up with Netflix for streaming movies. Very easy and works great. And lots more You can't do much better for a Blu-ray player at any price

Great Viewing Quality, Doesn't have all the features


I bought this strictly to play BluRay discs and watch netflix in my bedroom. As well as to have 1080p support for my new LCD tv. I am a bit disappointed that it doesn't have Pandora like it says it does. However, I am not surprised. In all this is a...

Good price, Excellent image quality, Plays files from my hard drives and plays MP3's. Netflix runs very well off it and gives an excellent image as well. Much better than watching it on my XBOX

Does not support what Newegg says it does ; MLB.TV: NO ; vTuner: NO ; Pandora:NO ; Napster: NO ; DivX TV: NO ; Viewster: NO ; AccuWeather: NO ; Picasa: NO ; Funspot: NO ; I don't know if this is a mistake with Newegg, or misrepresentation from the...

I have a U shaped house, where the wireless router is located at the tip of the u. My room is located across the U, 130 feet , and 2 walls away. My iPad doesn't even detect the wireless signal, and my laptops (integrated wireless N) connection is...

Hooked up to my LG TV via HDMI seamlessly. Simplink works as expected to

The front panel is darker than it should be. It looks like a early 1990s display

LG Cust Service incompetent


Reduced confidence in LG products because of this experience. Have not yet used it. If I keep I'll report more then. Might very well be a good unit, but I did proper research and LG let me down so only 1 star. I should have known better- does...

I did not require more features than it provided (according to CS rep) or so I thought. It was what I was looking for until received

Well, I called LG CS before purchase because LG website did not have BD630 device. Rep said BD630 not there because it is being made for select retailers. That caught my attention but she directed me to site and it stated 2 times it has...
