LG BP620 review

 Review: January 2013  
 

Rating: 5 stars

In a nutshell: An excellent Blu-Ray player with Smart TV, 3D playback and built-in Wi-Fi. It's a bargain!



 

Design & looks

The BP620 is a smart and stylish Blu-Ray player with a black, glossy finish. It has a sleeker design than LG's entry-level players, as befits its status as a more upmarket product and will complement a contemporary LED TV from LG or another make. The front fascia incorporates an LED display and buttons for Play/Pause, Stop, Eject, and Power.

The user interface of the BP620 is one of the most pleasant we've encountered, with an easy-to-use menu and colourful icons. If you have an LG TV, you can control both devices with a single remote control. If you want to, you can also download an app to turn your smartphone into a remote control for the device.

Playback

The player can play Blu-Ray disks, including full support for 3D disks.

It can also play DVDs, including DVD+RW/+R and DVD-RW/-R. When playing DVDs, the player can upscale to full 1080p HD.

It also plays audio CDs, including CD-R, CD-RW and DTS CD. A handy CD ripping feature is available, for converting audio CDs to digital format.

Smart Hub

The player is equipped with LG Smart TV giving you access to the BBC iPlayer, LoveFilm, YouTube, a premium video on demand service, Facebook, Twitter and LG Apps. For this, you'll need to connect the box to the internet using an ethernet cable, or Wi-Fi.

The ethernet connection is recommended for streaming movies from the internet. If your broadband router isn't easily accessible, you can run a broadband connection via your electrical sockets using HomePlug adapters.

Connectivity

The player connects to a HD Ready TV via HDMI or to an older TV via a composite AV connection. There's also an optical audio output for connecting to an external speaker system.

Smart Share lets you connect your PC, external HDD or USB memory stick using the USB port to access music, photos or videos on your TV.

Internet access is available either using an ethernet cable or via the built-in Wi-Fi with DLNA support. You can use this feature to connect the player to your home network, enabling you to stream movies, music or photos to your TV and home entertainment system. All available content is easily accessed from the user interface.

Conclusion - a good value player with a great range of features

The BP620 is our favourite of LG's current Blu-Ray range. It's a nice looking player that supports everything we could ask for, including built-in Wi-Fi, 3d disk playback, 1080p upscaling of DVDs, and LG's Smart TV functionality. And the price is very competitive too.
