This unit to me was bad at first but now its the only one I keep with me.
 
I don't trust this product what so ever. The auto clock didn't work right away. I used manual and now my clock keeps changing an hour off repeatedly. If for some reason the power flickers, all timers are gone. Two of my local channels keep switching between stereo and mono, therefore completely messing up my recording. The component video outs are screwed up and the fan is making a wierd noise. The pluses on this unit are that it can play and divx formats and it has an HDMI output. If you like p...

Great if it would work for more than a few months
 
I've had this recorder for a year and it has had problems after the first 3 months. At first it worked as it was supposed to. But after 3 months it started malfunctioning on playing commercial DVDs, wouldn't recognize disks it had made and that played fine before. Now it won't even finalize disks it just wrote. This device is way too expensive to have these malfunctions. I have been very careful in the way I handled this player. I have another player that I use for most viewing and I only used t...

Not ready for prime time
 
You would be well-advised to avoid this product. My son-in-law and I both bought one of these at the same time and have had the same (poor) experience. The playback quality of DVDs and VCRs are both excellent - when they work. However, this thing will not read half of the discs I put in it, including discs it has made itself. When you call their customer service, they recommend that you buy a DVD cleaner. Please! Even in the best of times, it takes an inordinate time just to spin-up a disc...

My first and last LG product
 
We got about 9 months out of this unit before it started having playback problems. It rapidly got worse after that, and it finally refused to accept any DVDs or CDs, regardless of whether those were recordable or not. So the whole unit suddenly became completely useless.Since not having extended warranty I figured it was too expensive to try to get it fixed.What I did is the following. When you open up the unit, the disc drive is in fact a standard PC IDE interfaced CD/DV...

Not good
 
DVD reader died in 6 mos. $70 labor + shipping to "fix" it.I guess LG isn't too concerned about their brand.

I bought one of these and was very pleased with it for about a year. Then, all of a sudden, inside a week, it stopped recognizing commercial dvds. Now it won't recognize anything. LG does not have a fix. From massive internet complaints, this is a common problem I have two LG internal DVD writers on my computers and have no problem with them. I cannnot figure out where the problem is. LG DOES NOT have firmware upgrades or anything useful on the web site. I have reached a dead end. I'm pr...

Audio Drops Constantly
 
This unit drives me crazy. rarely use the unit and waited too long to return/exchange at Best Buy. The audio drops out every few seconds. Both the digital and analog feeds are affected. On last day of warranty, LG agreed to repair or replace. Got a reconditioned replacement and it too has the same problems. I wish I would have read reviews before purchasing. This was a lot of money to pay for lousy audio. Otherwise, picture an ease of use is nice.

Cannot recognize discs 8 months out
 
Unfortunately, add my family to the list of people burned by this poor quality product. It did work well in the beginning so I gave it two stars instead of one. It fails to recognize most commercial disks at this point. I did not heavily use the unit, so it took longer to realize there were problems. From the other posts on this site, it looks like I am out of luck . The trouble is, I would have given this four or five stars during the first few months. Beware. I sincerely hope this devic...

Works great for a while then...
 
I really liked this unit a lot when I first purchased it. I had some issues with the HDMI output and my Plasma screen being green but a power cycle always solved it. 6 months into owning it is when the real trouble started. In the middle of a movie suddenly the unit would freeze. No amount of voodoo would get it out of it's slumber. Unplugging was the only option. At this stage, it will only reliably play 1 out of 3 DVDs and won't even recognize some that it used to. This thing is being tossed i...

Done with LG and Best Buy
 
Too bad Amazon makes me rate at least a one because this player is a zero. We purchased it in July 06 but used it very little. I would guess we've used it less than 10 times. After about the 3rd use, it quit reading commercial discs. I tried disabling the auto-play feature to see if that would help and it did not. I can eject and reload the disc 20 times and it might evenutally play. These are the same problems that everyone else is complaining about. I only wish I was within my American ...
