The DVDs I have played have worked and looked good. Overall I am not impressed with this item and am disappointed with LG. It does not have any other optical audio ports as stated on Walmart's website. I do not have any Bluray disks to try, but I might buy one just to see if it will play them.With DVD, the copy protection scheme was compromised shortly after release.
I had to unplug the unit from the wall to get it to turn off.
I see on LG's website this item is now discontinued.
With Blu-ray, they wanted to prevent this and introduced more extensive copy protection.
One of the most significant features is the ability to add additional, new methods of copy protection, and to revoke permissions for playback if something like the DVD fiasco happened again.
