Great disc player

Got a bargain for just $319 on Ebay with free delivery. Has all the features I wanted, 4K ultra high definition blue-ray, and very happy with quality of LG product. Replaces my existing disc player and was easy to install and operate. Fast load. Better value than Sony player. Highly recommended. Doesn't come with cable but that was okay as I had one.

Date PurchasedMar 2018

Excellent fast loading 4K UHD or Blu-Ray or DVD player

Positives: Excellent value at $348 Boxing week sales with Excellent picture quality output & works well with LG OLED TV's
Easy setup,
Excellent load speeds.
Has a real tray to load disks, fast forward works quick along with indexing.
Very quite - must have AUGUST production model or later.
Can be made Region free both 4k/Blue ray & DVD via www.RattleByte.com Euro 49.00 = ~$78.00 AUD need electronic tech to solder it in - voids warranty though but at this price 7 mod :-) woo hoo - play discs from the World.
Do not buy March -September production ones as they can be noisy, feet etc. were upgraded for August 2017 produced ones on wards.
No HDMI cable - so make sure you get one 2.0 above High speed spec, no need at all for expensive ones.
Visual front is very cheap looking plastic with no display - all via TV and remote except for basic functions non illuminated.
Remote Indonesian made - cheap looking and does not match the premium feel of LG's remotes made in Korea OLED TV's
Basic old fashioned style Menu - but solid - works.
No Wired audio output, only Optical audio or via HDMI

Over all very happy with Product, no nonsense all value product fast operation than expensive Sony, deserves 4.5, but rated it 5 as there is no option.
hope this helps.
