LG BP250 review
|Review: June 2015|
In a nutshell: If you want a Blu-Ray player that plays disks and ... well, nothing else really, then the LG BP250 is a good, cheap choice. It has no 3D capability, but will upscale DVDs to Full 1080p HD. For the price, you really can't go wrong.
Design & looks
The LG BP250 is an attractive Blu-Ray player with a honeycomb-effect black finish. It doesn't look as cheap as it is, and will complement a modern TV set-up nicely. It's very compact, measuring just 27cm wide.
The BP250 Blu-Ray player can play 2D Blu-Ray disks, including BD-R/-RE, as well as Region 2 DVDs, including DVD+-RW/+-R. It can also play CDs, including CD-R and CD-RW. When playing DVDs, the player can upscale to full 1080p HD.
Connectivity is basic, but considering that there's no Smart TV, everything you need is here. A HDMI port connects to a HD-Ready TV, and there's also a USB connector. This lets you access music, photos or videos from a USB drive or device.
Conclusion - all the essentials for hardly any money
Blu-Ray players don't really get any cheaper than this! For around £50 you get a player that supports 2D Blu-Ray and DVD, and if that's all you need, there's no point in paying more.

I want to be able to play standard DVD's and play my CD collection. I have purchased this BP250 but want to make sure it allows the functionality I require before I open the packaging.

Yes, it will connect to a smart TV with a HDMI cable, and it plays DVDs and CDs.
