  • The LG BP420 has a very friendly user interface and offers up strong picture quality for both 2D and 3D movies, while also including an impressive range of Smart TV apps and good digital media support. It lacks the extra lick of speed that would have made the smart apps and streaming more satisfying to use, but overall it's a good deck for the money.

    The BP420 is currently LG's most popular Blu-Ray player and with good reason. Despite being priced at around £100, it includes support for Smart TV and 3D playback. It lacks Wi-Fi support though, so if this feature is important, you should consider the BP520.


  • If you want 3D, the LG BP620 has most of the right features, but the absence of Amazon Instant and a dedicated Netflix button hurt its value a bit.


  • The LG BP620 is a strong 3D Blu-ray deck from LG. It delivers good picture quality and has a fairly comprehensive line-up of features for the price. It could be a little bit more responsive when it comes to the Smart apps, but overall it's a good option if you're looking for an inexpensive 3D Blu-ray player with integrated Wi-Fi.


  • The LG BP620 is one of the best budget Blu-ray players we've seen this year, with tons of features and fast performance for just $150.
