I purchased this item over the holiday season because it was on sale at my local Sears store. I did not previously own a Blu-Ray player, but many friends of mine had and they definitely said it was a good investment even if the DVD's cost a few more dollars. The picture quality is great, although you will need an HDMI cable.
This is a nice Blu Ray Player. It was a good price too. I like that you can watch Netflix through it. You can watch You Tube and Hulu as well but I don't have that much interest in those channels. Haven't had any issues with it so far and we have owned it for at least 6 months now.
Good player but bought it when first came out for a higher price. Does have built in wifi to connect to netflix and other apps
I bought this because it can play all the formats I need. The other manufactures at this price were not equipped to play MP-4 and 264 files.
No complaints. Loads fast, Great Picture on my LG Smart TV, Very Compact, Easy to use Remote, Great Value. My only wish is that I could use my LG TV and LG BluRay Disc player with the same remote.
This product works well for our use. Do not watch many movies. Got this mainly for the grandkids to watch their disks. Great picture and fairly simple to use.Menus are great.
I wanted to upgrade to a Blu-Ray player to compliment my new LG LED HDTV without breaking the bank. This unit does just that. I get the Blu-Ray capability I wanted as well as an enhanced picture when playing my regular DVD's. Should I want to do more, this unit also has Smart TV capabilities.
We got this Blu Ray player when we moved into our new house. So far it has been great. We are the type that don't watch tons of tv or movies but it is great for for the occasional watcher. Movies turn out looking really good and the features are nice. If I was a real movie person watching all the time I would say to step up the the higher end versions. They have a little better features and feel better built. Overall though this is a great Blu Ray player that I would recommend.
Would like to see the music player capability expanded to include .mid files.
I have an early model big screen tv and I notice a big difference in the picture quality compared to my previous dvd player.
I have a large DVD collection, which I'm not about to give up anytime soon, and was looking for a quality DVD up-convert player. The Samsung BP200 excels at doing this and plays Blu-ray disks as well as my much more expensive one--for I'm now building up my Blu-ray collection as well. Couldn't be more satisfied with this purchase.
Since this is my first Blu-ray player I cannot compare it to any other, but this Blu-ray player surpasses the manufactured quality of any of my DVD players. Do I have any Blu-ray movies yet? Since this player plays my DVD movies so well there is no motivation to run out and buy a new flick just yet.
The BP220 is an incredibly high quality Blu-Ray player with beautiful, sleek design and features that make it an incredible value. This was my first Blu-Ray player and I wanted to be sure that it would be a purchase that I was pleased with for a LONG time and one that wouldn't make my DVD collection obsolete. The features are everything that I was looking for. The 1080 up-scaling makes my DVD's look much better, and HD streaming options from Netflix, VuDu and others make HD content easy to get your hands on. This model is not WiFi ready (although you can buy an additional adapter), but like many people, my wireless router hooks up to the cable coax. So, I simply put my router over by my TV! The Ethernet plugs straight into the BP220 giving me full internet access without needing WiFi and all my other devices can use the wireless router to access the web. My one and only "complaint" is that the online content is a little slow to load. In a world where computers are as fast as they are, no one wants to wait 15 seconds for the YouTube app to open or 30 seconds for it to load. But since the price was SO GOOD... I think I can just learn a little patience. (Especially since 30 seconds is REALLY not that long)Overall I am VERY pleased with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone who can plug their Blu-Ray player straight into an Ethernet connection.
Received my BP220 Blu-Ray player on Oct 25, 2012 and my son & I installed it on Nov 1st once I received my cables and new LG-60PA6500 HDTV. Installed perfectly, connected itself to the internet (via Ethernet) and updated to the new firmware without any problems. After seeing how well it played my existing DVD’s and internet content (i.e.; Youtube), my wife drove to the nearest Redbox to rent a Blu-Ray to see just how good it could really be. We were absolutely amazed at how clear/defined the picture was in comparison to our old (expensive) DVD player. I am sure that the LG-60PA6500 also had something to do with it but without a doubt, the BP220 made everything perfect! Also, need to add that when pairing the BP220 to a LG HDTV, the LG Simplink function works like a charm.
