What we love about LG Blu-ray players
All of the current Blu-ray players from LG are great value for money. Enjoy a range of media from disc formats and via a USB memory stick. Some players offer 4k upscaling, while others have Dolby Atmos built-in.
How much does they cost?
The current range of units are priced between £80 and £220. So are highly affordable and represent great value for money when you consider what features each player offers. They might not be world changing Blu-ray players but are solid units that last.
Anything to be aware of?
Some units have developed issues after the warranty has expired. However, as technology moves at lightening speed, you’ll probably be due an upgrade by this point.
The cheaper units lack multiple outputs which could be a little limiting if you’re running a home cinema system, hence why we recommend using these as secondary units not for your main TV or entertainment room.

You’ll find an excellent support section on the LG website. So whether you want to find a manual, register a product, or request a repair, there’s plenty of information available. Plus, you can find several ways to contact LG, such as email, WhatsApp, and live chat.
