This would be a wonderful Blu-Ray player but I haven't had it for a year and it's already broke down on me twice. Six months after getting it, it wouldn't eject my DVD. I click the eject button, the screen flashes up "OPEN", you can hear the mechanism working, but the drive doesn't open. A few seconds later the screen says "CLOSE" and the player starts playing the DVD again.
I got in touch with LG, they sent one of their engineers out to pick it up. After a week, I it back. However, the courier that delivered it back to me looked like he'd been called from the guts of a car engine, and the package was coated in oil and grease.
Two months later, the exact same fault has happened, and yet again, I've got a DVD still in the player.
LG wants to offer me another repair with no guarantee that the player won't break in the exact same way again, or that the courier would be another car mechanic fresh from working on an engine.
For the time being, avoid this model.
