E167961 - LG Smart TV Upgrader w/Built in Wi-Fi & Internet Apps
not Enough apps.Always troubles with comnnection.No popular apps and for the money a complete waste of money.Now i see theres better products out there with 3 times the apps for less money.Thought LG ;s reputation was better than this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love it. worth the money
I absolutely love this. I have a PS3 in my main TV, but I wanted to watch Hulu Plus and Netflix in the bedroom without having to move the PS3 each time. This is the perfect solution. You have to do the upgrade to get Hulu, but when you do, it works perfectly. I am even thinking about canceling my cable subscription. I can now watch everything I want without cable. Wonderful product,
Too much trouble
I purchased this device along with several Rokus for several TVs. This device is much more difficult to set up than the Roku. I am an IT manager and I'm used to working with different pieces of technology, and while it didn't take me that long to set up I think a non-tech person would find it a little difficult. As for accessing the internet and/or using the apps, the remote as a keyboard is awful, and the available apps are pathetic. The unit works, it's just not up to the caliber of its competitor. Don't bother with this, buy a Roku.
No Smart Media Box is Going To Be Perfect!
For clarification purposes, this LG ST 600 Smart Media Upgrader as well as any other upgrader media box (I don't care who the manufacturer is) is not going to take the place of a laptop or desktop computer, period! What this LG ST 600 settop box does is an enhancement to your TV viewing pleasure. I love how I can view my Picasa Web albums on my 47 inch LG flat panel screen. I love how I can choose a movie on VuDu and begin watching that movie in seconds (similar to downloading a book on my NOOKcolor e-Reader). I love how I can look at the weather forecast in Phoenix any time I wish by utilizing this upgrader. This device works just fine! If someone is looking for miracles on any upgrade media settop box, he or she is going to be very disappointed. Keep in mind, there are certain TV networks and other MSM applications that are not granting licenses to certain upgrade media devices. Any media box you purchase will have its limitations. Leave searching the Internet and checking your E-mail to the computer....that's what computers are for! I'm very happy with this LG ST 600 Smart Media Upgrader that my brother purchased from QVC and gave to me for Christmas.
What a DUD!
Gave this to hubby for Christmas since we have an LG television and thought this would be a great paring.....NOT!!! Could not get this to work at all. Purchased another TV upgrader with apps and it worked instantly. This unit will be returned ASAP and hope it is not too late.
I had problems connecting the device in my bedroom. However, I placed the device in my sons bedroom which is closer to the router and it works just fine in his room. If you do not have a strong wireless signal the device will not connect and/or stay connected. My son loves it for watching Netflix in his bedroom.
Very nice little device!!!
Set up was a breeze. No problems at all. Remote works fine. Actually feels more substantial and works better than my satellite remote. I don't understand all the negative reviews. It does everything as advertised and does it well. Although I do hope there will be a lot more apps soon! Also, I would like to be able to use a handheld keyboard instead of the on-screen one. It slows down my web browsing! Otherwise, it's a wonderful product and now I can watch something else on another TV while my husband is watching ball games. We only have a single tuner dish receiver. This really is great. I'm thinking about dropping our Premium stations from our Sat programming.
I had no problem setting this up with my router and no problem hooking up to my TV. Trying to get the remote to communicate with it's own device was a nightmare. It's coming back. I really don't need this much frustration!!!
REMOTE REALLY BAD HARD TO WORK
A REAL LET DOWN. WILL RETURN. I SHOULD HAVE READ REVIEWS. WIFI DIDN'T CONNECT. HAD TO USE CABLE. THE REMOTE WAS REALLY TO CONTROLL. IT TOOK HOURS AND STILL COULDN'T LOG INTO ANYTHING. I'LL BE RETURNING IT. OH, I HAVE A NEWER LG HDTV. BEWARE.
Great Little Box
I had No problems setting it up, as it took approx. 10 mins from start to finish. Love how it has Hulu Plus along with lots of others to stream movies and tv shows. Also like the size too. I really love the fact that you can get on the internet via this product.
A Little Wonder!
I just received mine and installed it today, no problems getting it up and running, you need your own HDMI cable and since this streams in 1080p you would not get the full benefit if you hook it up with anything but HDMI, even though you have other options. There is a slight learning curve to this, you have premiums like Netflix,, you need to subscribe, well worth it, vudo, all HD, newest releases, kind of a pay-per- view deal, but better, also well worth it. You Tube, we know what that's all about. I did not see Hulu or Hulu Plus on mine. I hear it's available but you have to update, no problem. There are many apps to choose from, and you do have internet access which is a big plus. As I said, I'm still learning about this device, but from what I can see, it works as advertised. Thinking about dumping my cable and saving 100 bucks a month!.
NOT SO GOOD PRODUCT
I RECEIVED THIS ITEM TODAY AND I WILL RETURN IT TOMORROW, ITHIS ITEM WOULD NOT WORK FOR ME. AFTER TRYING FOR OVER SIX HOURS I GAVE UP .
