I've really enjoyed using this machine. It's super-simple to hook-up, and the on-screen interface is extremely easy to navigate. Picture quality (which includes 1080p up-sampling) is very good. This machine has wi-fi, and that's easy to set-up as well. We have a DLNA-capable wireless router and we've been able to watch videos and listen to music on our TV via the BP530. I highly recommend this machine.

Configuration was pretty easy, although the remote didn't always behave in the way I would expect. I did have to start over the entire configuration process because it froze on configuring an LC App for Android and IOS. Connecting to our wireless network was no trouble at all. I cannot find a way to engage LG's simplink (links behavior of LG devices), although this is supposed to be Simplink compatible. Minor point.

Everything else works as expected...in the case of network devices, I'm actually impressed. I have a public space on a NAS (networked) drive. It was very easy to navigate there and watch content. I didn't try in my protected network locations...I'm not sure how this would work if the access requires Windows credentials.

                  I bought this in June of this year at my jobs store was working well but haven't used in months. When I turned on the player the "hello" and the number display worked but I pushed play and nothing would show up on my TV AT ALL completely black. Was very disappointed and now of course have to get a new player but not by this brand.

                      BASICALLY ONLY USEFUL AS A BLUE RAY PLAYER!!! But what do you expect for the price. YouTube is barley functional, the player keeps signing you out forcing you to go to the computer and entering a code, similar issues with NetFlix the player constantly drops internet connection whether on WiFi or LAN. no browser app so you can surf the net from the sofa. Constantly overheats and freezes up I had to modify an old computer aluminum Heat sink and use good thermal compound to fix the problem. I also had re fix some cold solder joints to many useless per-installed apps you cant get rid of that suck up memory making overall performance slow. All in all spend a little more money and buy something better!!! LG Should have thought this one out a little better.

                          Works But Has Poor Remote

                          Comments about LG Electronics BP530 3D Capable Blu-ray Disc Player:

                          The player seems to work in every mode; however the remote is very poorly designed. The problem is with its power. The remote takes only one AAA battery and must be pointed directly at the unit with nothing in the way to be able to work. I don’t know how many times I’ve pushed a button the same way I push the buttons on my other DVD players, cable box, audio amplifier, VCR, etc. and nothing happens. Then I have to stop, carefully point it directly at the unit and push again. This is not my first LG Blu-Ray player. I actually have three. The LG 335 has the same small remote, but I use it in a very small space where I am very close to the player. I have found however, that my oldest unit, a BD-670, has a remote that will work with this one without having to be so carefully used. Now I just have to find one.

                                  No complaints.....except...it seems the remote does not always turn the unit on and off even when I make sure it is pointed right at the unit. I've learned to live with it. Nice streaming and I love the slim height of the unit.

                                      No matter the price of more expensive units , this Smart 3D player does the same as the pricey ones. The price was right and I bought the 3D movies with the savings on my purchase. This player made me smart. I will never leave my home 3D system for another. GO LG you ROCK.

All this in a very compact and functional design. The unit is very quiet when it operates and has performed flawlessly. I would definitely recommend it.

                                            I love all the features I wish that their were more apps that could be used with my blu ray

                                                I purchased this on recommendation of a friend. Both of us have been disappointed by the lack of support and programming updates. In the long-term competition for internet & video streaming, manufacturers need to shift their model from "sell it and forget it (or just do auto upgrades)" to one where (possibly for a small fee) firmware/software is upgraded and added to regularly. The failure to upgrade Netcast applications is a real negative for this product.

                                                    The connection to the internet makes this product worth having ever.

                                                        Great! Only issue would be size of remote control. It was different than either of my LG TVs. I would think all would use the same for consistency.
