Naturally, a good Blu-ray player will make your Blu-ray movies pop with color and detail. And the LG BP-330 is no exception, delivering gorgeous 1080p video to your HDTV.

With built-in apps for Netflix®, HuluPlus™, YouTube™, Vudu® and lots of others, your choices will seem endless. And with the BP-330's Wi-Fi connectivity, it's easy to add this player to your wireless network from any room in the house. Plus, its compact design gives you the flexibility to tuck it into tight spaces. Connect it to your home theater for thrilling surround sound, or set it up in the bedroom for late-night viewing.
The BP-330's front-panel USB port is a great way to listen to digital music through your home theater speakers. It's also perfect for showing photo slide shows on your HDTV. You can even rip CDs to thumb drives for use with other devices like a car stereo. All these features are easy and fun to explore thanks to LG's intuitive on-screen guide. And for simple control from your smartphone or tablet, download the free LG AV Remote app. It's a great way to navigate between the BP-330's apps, for when you're finished watching a movie on Netflix and feel like listening to some music with Pandora®.

Easy Hook up WiFi was super easy to setup. Just looks great with the LG TV
Pros: All Good
Cons: None at this time
After finally getting it working, looks like it wiill meet expectations. Battery for remote was dead, and very disappointed that a HDMI cable was not included in this item. If I'd known would have ordered one. It has more bells and whistles than i need, but may eventually use.
Pros: small and easy to install
Cons: Dead Battery for remote, and NO HDMI cable.
The LG blu-ra play is my first and I am generally quite pleased with the product. While may not have all of the bells and whistles of the higher end models, for my needs and for the money that I wanted to spend, this product has met and exceeded my expectation.
Pros: Nice, simple and easy to use controls. Good on-screen icons and aids. Simple remote control; I was pleased that LG included the batteries for the remote control.
Easy to hook up with the cable C suggested Was told by C I could use it like a Roku box. We'll see how that works. Have played movie cds and music cd's works great.
Pros: small, compact, easy to use
Cons: None so far
I've only used this for Blu-Ray and DVDs so far, but for that alone it's been a great purchase. I wasn't aware of just how small the size was when I purchased it, but this unit is almost half the size of the unit it replaced. Watching movies is easy, without needing to read a novel to operate it like my previous unit. Picture quality is much improved, on both HD videos and even older DVDs.
Pros: Easy to use Small size Great picture quality
Cons: None yet
I bought this for my in-laws to have a DVD player and for netflix. They have SLOW WiFi, so I hard-wired the LAN cable right to this unit. Everything worked great - and the one I bought was an open box and it still shipped looking and packed like new.
Pros: small, quick & easy to connect
Cons: comes with software for pictures, slideshows, etc... that I didn't use - just one more "thing" to install on your computer if interested...
Sleek , compact and efficient . The small foot=print makes it great for discrete placement and picture quality is superb. Use it in our main set up but would be great in a bedroom or spare room where space is limited . If needed could create a smart tv without having to upgrade your set
Cons: Main menu takes a little getting used to , but that is due to all its features .
First unit did not work, had to send it back and get a new one which seems to work ok
Pros: Crutchfield sent me another unit the very next day. Great service
Cons: Can't get it to work with one control, need two control units

Disc Compatibility: The LG BP330 Blu-ray disc player is compatible with many disc types:
|Disc Type||Disc Description|
|Blu-ray||BD-ROM, BD-R, BD-RE|
|DVD||DVD-Video, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW|
|CD||CD-Audio, CD-R, CD-RW|
Blu-ray Disc Overview: Blu-ray Disc (BD) is a high-definition disc format designed to take advantage of today's high quality HDTVs. The resolution is up to 1920 x 1080 (1080p) and the data transfer rate is up to 54 mbps. Blu-ray Disc discs and players offer several advantages over the standard DVD format:
Note: Like DVD, BD uses region codes. The region code on your disc must match the region code on your player, otherwise the disc will not play. The player is Blu-ray region A and DVD region 1. Blu-ray Disc uses the Advanced Access Content System (AACS) to prevent unauthorized recording of copyrighted material.
Firmware Updates: As Blu-Ray technology continues to evolve, new disc types with enhanced functionality will become available. In order for you to enjoy this new functionality, you will likely be required to update the firmware in your player. These firmware updates will become available for downloading from the Internet. Occasionally, LG may release updated firmware for this unit that may add or improve the way a feature operates. These updates are available free of charge. This unit is capable of checking the firmware automatically when connected to the Internet via broadband connection.
Note: The tested Blu-ray player contained software/firmware version BD7.392.00.00.C with an immediate update for software/firmware version BD7.892.00 (as of 4/17/2013). Visit LG's Support Site for the latest firmware/software updates.
AVCHD: AVCHD (MPEG-4 AVC/H.264) is a high definition digital video camera format used to record in high definition or standard definition on DVD, using an efficient data compression coding technology. The format is designed to compress video and audio (Dolby Digital or Linear PCM) data, enabling a high definition video signal shot on a digital video camera recorder to be recorded on DVD discs, in the same way as it would be for a standard definition signal.
Front-Panel USB Port (w/ CD-to-USB Ripping): The Blu-ray player features a front-panel USB (type-A) port for playback of video, still image, and music files stored on a connected USB memory device. The player can support USB external hard disc drives (up to 2TB) and USB mass storage class devices (up to 32GB). The USB storage device must be formatted as FAT 32 or NTFS file system. You can also record one desired track or all of the tracks from a CD-Audio disc to an inserted USB storage device. CD audio tracks are converted to MP3 format (128/192/320kbps) and saved to your connected USB device.
Compatible Audio/Video/Photo Formats: The LG BP330 Blu-ray disc player supports the following video, audio, and photo files recorded onto disc (BD-R/RE, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, or CD-R/RW) or USB (MSC/HDD).
|File Type||File Description|
|Audio||MP3 (32-320kbps; 16-48kHz), WMA 32-192kbps; 22-48kHz), WAV, FLAC|
|Video||XVID, MPEG1 SS, H.264/MPEG-4 AVCHD, MPEG2 PS, MPEG2 TS, VC-1 SM (WMV3)|
|Photo||JPEG, PNG, GIF (less than 4,000 x 3,000 x 24-bit/pixel; or 3,000 x 3,000 x 32-bit/pixel)|
HDMI: The BP330's HDMI output simplifies A/V connections by carrying video and digital audio in one cable. The HDMI resolution can be fixed at 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, or 1080p, or set to Auto, which selects the highest resolution accepted by your television.
1080/24p: Movies are typically filmed at 24 frames per second and some Blu-ray Discs use the same frame rate. If your TV will accept a 1080/24p signal, the BP330 can pass the signal in its native form, without converting the video.
DVD Upscaling: When connected to your TV using the HDMI output, the BP330 scales the output of a standard DVD signal to HD-compatible 720p, 1080i, or 1080p. The unit also supports 480p and 480i output if your television is not HD-compatible.
TV Aspect Ratio: You can select which aspect ratio the player outputs according to your television's aspect ratio.
Picture Modes: You can select one of four preset Picture Modes (Standard/Vivid/Movie/User). The User mode allows you to manually adjust the Contrast, Brightness, Color, and Sharpness of the Blu-ray player.
BonusView: The BonusView feature provides picture-in-picture capability with select Blu-ray Disc titles. You can view addition content (such as director/actor commentary) in a small display window while the movie is playing.
Dolby Digital/DTS Surround Decoding: The LG BP330 can decode the following Dolby Digital/DTS surround formats; Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby True HD, DTS HD High Resolution, and DTS-HD Master Audio. The player must be connected to a Dolby Digital/DTS surround AV receiver which also supports these same formats via HDMI input. You can set the unit's HDMI output to match the capabilities of your connected AV receiver.
|Dolby Digital||2ch||2ch||Dolby Digital||DTS|
|Dolby Digital Plus||2ch||2ch||Dolby Digital Plus||DTS|
|Dolby TrueHD||2ch||2ch||Dolby TrueHD||DTS|
|PCM||2ch||up to 7.1ch||up to 7.1ch||DTS|
Dynamic Range Control: This function allows you to listen to a movie (Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, or Dolby TrueHD content) at a lower volume without losing clarity of sound. The player's DRC function can be set to Auto, On, or Off.
Down Sampling: 192 kHz and 96 kHz digital signals can be converted to 48 kHz for components not compatible with higher sampling rates.
Network Connection: The LG Blu-ray player can be connected to your home network via its Ethernet (LAN) port or built-in WiFi. The network connection offers access to your PC movie/photo/music files & online LG Premium Apps. A 10 Base-T or 100 Base-TX LAN port is required for a hardwired Ethernet connection (use a standard LAN cable with this TV; Cat5 or better with a RJ45 connector). A wireless connection requires a home network with an 802.11 b/g/n access point (802.11n recommended) and internet connection; supports WPS, WEP, and WPA security.
LG Premium Apps: LG Premium Apps allows you to access a variety of online services and content directly on the BP330 Blu-ray player through its network connection. LG Premium Apps is an easy way to access online movies, music, web albums, and weather; all organized in a simple user interface.
