        Comments about LG Electronics BP730 3D Capable Blu-ray Disc Player:

        I was in the market for a Blu-Ray player with network and 3D capabilities. I have bought previous versions of LG Blu-Ray players in the past and have been very satisfied. The BP730 has a robust set of Apps which covers a lot of the popular streaming services; Netflix, YouTube, Pandora, etc. I was disappointed not to see [*] listed, as I use that particular app to stream content. I'm not sure I can add it either, after having attempted to do so. I'll have to explore this more. The picture quality is great. I had read a lot of previous reviews about the remote. It is a bit quirky and takes some getting used to. I chose the "slow" mouse speed in the Settings and that seemed to help to make the remote a lot less sensitive. It really is like using a computer mouse and wheel. It's intuitive. I did have to re- register the remote at some point because it stopped responding - right in the middle of a movie. Luckily I had an LG HDTV remote which saw the Blu-Ray player and allowed me to pause, play, etc. Re-registering the remote was a matter of pressing two buttons at the same time. Very simple. Hopefully, I won't have to continuously do that. I wirelessly updated the firmware right out of the box. This was simple and straightforward. Idiot alert here - I almost called tech support and requested an RMA because I couldn't get the DVD tray to open after hitting the eject button. I thought the unit was defective or had taken a hit during Shipping Duh! There IS no DVD tray - at least the kind that pops out when you hit the Eject button. It's a front loader. Place any DVD or disc into the slot that says DVD or "Disc In" and it loads (similar to a car CD or DVD player). I'm embarrassed to admit this simple mistake. I will note however that there is no eject button on the simplified remote, which has very few buttons for that matter. Maybe the Eject is somewhere in the OS Menu, but I can't find it if it is. I guess it's no big deal to hit the Eject button on the unit itself if you have to change a movie. Overall, I'm satisfied with the unit. The quirks are things that I can live with and get used to with time.

          Bought it for the blu ray, net flicks and pandora. Haven't tried blu ray yet but net flicks is good and Pandora is great especially hooked up to the stereo.
          The remote is not so great. Batteries went dead in an hour or two. The pointer is novel and is OK for most purposes but useless for using with yahoo.

            Bought this to
            replace a two year old LG unit which I donated to a favorite nephew still in school. Used for blue ray disks and streaming from netflix.Great picture quality with all inputs.Certainly an improvement over the previous model. Although not what I would call very intuitive,the remote operation proved very cool once I got the hang of it.Very pleased with this purchase and the typical outstanding service from B&H.
