LG BD650 Blu-Ray Player - £34.99 in Sainsbury's instore

27
Found 3rd Jul 2012
Went into local Sainsbury's (Watford ) yesterday and they had an LG Blu-Ray player for a penny under £35. I thought this was a pretty good bargain so picked one up. It also has a USB slot for playing avi/mp4/mkv files from a USB stick or hard drive.

Model number BD650

Can't find it online, maybe in store only

Item info:

With typical LG style and performance, the LG BD650 shoots straight to the top of its class.

QUALITY COMPONENTS FOR THE BEST PICTURE QUALITY

As you'd expect from LG, the heart of this Blu-ray player is focused on offering the best sound and picture for the money. With its high quality video 12-bit DAC, Deep Colour and x.v.Colour compatibility, the BD650 offers up a class-leading picture quality. Offering an expansive colour palette, this blistering Blu-ray creates natural, believable images. High levels of detail are ever present, too. Even during the darkest of scenes, you'll easily be able to make out subtle details that are often glossed over by other budget machines. Motion is smoothly handled with a refreshing lack of blur and colour smear. As with other Blu-ray players, the BD650 will also make the most of your DVDs. Using a 1080p upsampling circuit, the LG is ideal for enhancing DVD clarity on modern, 1080p TV screens - the larger your screen, the greater the difference you'll notice!

GREAT CONNECTIVITY, INCLUDING USB

In addition to a wide range of connection sockets that includes HDMI, the BD650 also comes with a handy, front-mounted USB socket. This allows you to connect up your digital media device and playback a huge range of formats.

QUICK AND EASY TO USE

Thanks to its quick-opening tray, the BD650 is one of the fastest responding budget Blu-ray players. Unlike others, this LG Blu-ray player will let you start watching a film without there being time to make a cup of tea! The clear and logical menu system makes using this player easy, as does the clearly laid out remote control. Furthermore, should you have an LG TV, then you can take advantage of LG SimpLink for single remote control of both LG devices.

Designed to match modern TVs, the gloss black BD650 looks slick and unobtrusive. For a top brand player that's far superior to the average budget Blu-ray player, the LG BD650 offers sensational value.

Does anybody know if LG have bent over for Sony like other manufacturers have with respect to the Cinavia plague that is sweeping the globe via firmware updates? My Samsung BD-D5300 has recently caught the bug so I'm thinking of selling it. Thanks for nothing Samsung.

The lower-end Philips players are bad for this as well, took one back before and spent a bit more on a Panasonic as the noise got so annoying.
Can you hook up to a surround sound system and Sky?
Does anybody know if this can be hacked to play Region One DVDs?

It has an optical out so you can hook it up to a system that has an optical in.

Not sure what you mean by hooking it up to Sky?

Sorry, only just got this. Cinavia is a new audio watermark protection system that Sony are using in their films. It's aimed at combating piracy, which is great and it's a really good system. Sony are definitely leading the way in anti-piracy. Basically the audio goes off for 5 minutes every now and again, meaning that the film is pretty much unwatchable.

However, it also means that you can't back your own BluRays up. If you've got a home media server at home (Plex, XMBC, etc) that you stream to your hardware (PS3, smart BluRay player, etc) then any of Sony's films won't work on them as they think it's pirated material. Often it is but not always. It's annoyed a lot of people as their media server is incomplete and they then have to use the physical disc to watch the film. Samsung have started implementing it and I wondered if LG have too (last I heard they refused to but I imagine that will change). I've got a handful of backed up BluRays that won't stream on my media server now because the recent firmware update on my Samsung player now includes Cinavia protection. That's life though
