    Basic but just what a friend of mine wanted

    A friend of mine wanted me to set up a basic stereo playback rig for her. Nothing special: just a stereo (2-channel) music rig. I picked up a decent Insignia stereo receiver and this player. It is VERY basic: two analog audio outputs and one composite video output. It plays both DVDs and CDs, but remember that she was not interested in the movie function, so the serious video limitation is meaningless. Ditto for the audio outputs, because a two-channel analog output works just fine for her limited needs. Interestingly, I have a special test disc that evaluates error-correcting abilities with CD playback, and this little player scored as high as any other player I have ever auditioned, including some pretty expensive ones. The sonic benefits of this are nil, but it was still an impressive showing. If you want a budget CD player (not interested in video) and you do not mind that it does not have a digital output for an outboard decoder, this is a nifty item, especially for the price.

    LG DP132 dvd player

    Posted
    Justjanet

    I bought this dvd player, my niece hooked it up, we tried it & it worked. A few weeks later it didn't. Best Buy wouldn't take it back because it was more than 15 days. I sent an email to LG for assistance. They asked if anything showed in the display window when I tried to turn it on. This cheap dvd player doesn't have a display window. It has a thin slot for the dvd, a button to open it, a button to turn it on and a port. I can't reply to the email so I would need to start all over again tomorrow. Just to leave this review I had to create an account. Best Buy can keep their money. LG can keep their money. As the password I had to create says: Iwillnevershopatbestbuyagain

    Good DVD Player for basic playback

    This LG DVD player is a replacement for a Phillips that is approximately 20 years old. The new, LG DVD player plays DVDs that the old player would not even recognize, although there were many DVDs the old machine would play without any problem. But all DVDs that I tested will play with the new machine. When playing JPEG CDs, however, the LG player requires manually advancing the photos one by one; the Phillips player automatically advanced the frames. If that is important to you, it might be best to check with the salesperson to see if there is a way to automatically advance JPEG images recorded on CDs.

    Not a fan of this DVD player

    I bought this DVD player primarily to listen to audio CD's and occasionally watch a DVD movie. It was relatively easy to set up with my Onkyo receiver, and worked well playing my CD's; however, when I switched to a DVD, it locked up and would not play. I had to turn off the DVD player and then back on for it to correctly read the disc as a DVD ... same thing happened going from DVD to CD. I took it back to Best Buy and traded it for a Samsung DVD player that was priced the same as this LG. The Samsung works perfectly.

    Initially I bought an HDMI SONY DVD Player, which I returned shortly after buying as it was not playing a lot of DVD's because of zone, format, etc. This LG Player is great and plays almost 100% of the DVD's that I own and have recorded in the past in different zones and recorders. I use it mostly for playing CD's though. Yes I like retro. I still give it 5 stars, but I wish it had a display that shows time and track (on the machine itself, the UI shows everything). Would have been nice if it had HDMI output. Overall I would recommend this one.

    This DVD player was added to expand a Roku TV in a back bedroom. The remote is simple to operate and, unlike a number of remotes you find, it's easy to replace the batteries. I originally purchased a cheaper LG model, It was small but the remote was atrocious and some of the functions, like the slideshow feature, were either rudimentary or didn't operate as I wanted. The Sony does everything I want and the picture quality is excellent. I'm happy with the purchase so far.

    I wanted an inexpensive DVD player to go with my new LG tv. Easy set up, it plays. But they're so inexpensive these days you'd think they'd all come with an HDMI port. Nope! Not this one. HDMI provides better picture quality, especially when used with the new TVs. If you just need a DVD player for an old tv, this is a solid purchase. Otherwise, make sure you read the box and go with the latest and greatest. I'll be returning this one for HDMI capability.

    Simple DVD Player

    So far, I've only used the connection cords to hook up my old DVD player to my TV. For $30 it seemed like a better deal than buying just the $15 cords. I have found DVD players don't last longer than 8 or 9 years, and I'm not too picky when it comes to electronics. So when my current DVD player craps out, I'll have this one to replace it. The only reason I would not recommend this DVD player to a friend is because everyone I know already has something nicer.

    2 malfunctions

    SavvyShop

    Brand new this thing didn't work right. The images were distorted - elongated vertically on both DVDs used for testing. Then when after I closed the drawer it reopened by itself. This happened 4 times. Finally got it closed and exchanged it for a Sony DVP-SR210P. That's a low-end Sony with no Blu-ray. It's our second one. Works perfectly. FWIW, this LG felt and look badly-made and cheap. I wasn't surprised at all when it failed.

    purchased previous dvd for $25 at pawn shop and it worked for 12 years. My wife used for yoga and other exercise videos so just needed basic dvd. When it died I went to Best Buy for a cheap replacement and "cheap" is what I got. It did not connect to Bose system and TV like the previous one so sound is not good and picture is very basic. Only paid $25 so not worth the 40 miles to Best Buy to replace.

    At $30, found the LG DP132 dvd player to be an excellent buy and value. Being of a certain age, I was reluctant to give up my vcr. This DVD player was an easy transition to new technology. Set up was easy, though instructions could have been more detailed. The illustrated instructions were adequate. This player was completely compatible with my smart tv, was very satisfied with the loading speed and the quality of the picture

    Very simple to set up. I have used DVD/VHS players for years, Unfortunately , the DVD part seems to quit working. I attempted to buy used players but the same problem popped up. I decided to look and Best Buy had this great machine that sits on top of my DVD/VHS player. Now I can watch the programs without an issue or attempting to purchase a now expensive new DVD/VHS machine.

    This DVD player was an awesome buy! I have purchased 2 for my home and couldn't be happier. It is simple to operate and the price is right as well. Didn't need anything fancy and this fit the bill. It's fast, very responsive, quiet and works great for my 10 year old who loves movies and has quite the collection of DVDs. We have one in the living room and one in my son's bedroom.

    got this while we were staying at a hotel for vacation. thought the hotel had dvd but it didn't. we ran out to best buy after looking online at inventory, walked right on and found it, and we were all set. its cheap and gets the job done. great functionality for the price. we picked this model because it came with av cables, other models (some pricier) did not. it saved us having to buy that too.

    I browsed Best Buy specifically for Blu-ray;and this came up. All I want is a player. Don't need streaming and other fancy options. Figured the price was right. I figured everything played Blu-ray these days. I've had companies give them away as promotional gifts, so I know they can be cheap. Taking it back and continuing my search for a cheap Blu-ray.

    I haven't had it long, so, for now, all I can say is it is working properly. I am not happy with the instruction pamphlet that came with it. It's a series of basic pictures/diagrams, instead of text. I guess they are trying to save money on language translations. There are buttons on the remote that I'm going to have to figure out for myself.

    Rented a movie at the red box. Found out girlfriend didn't have a DVD player. Swung by Best Buy to pick this up. For $30, can't really complain. It does what I needed it to do. Set up was easy and it took less than 5 minutes to unpack it, connect it to the TV, and have it up and running. It even includes battery for the remote!

    I still have DVD movies to watch. Last machine was not working correctly. Found this DVD player at BBuy, it also will play CD's that I can download to a USB stick. I have not done that download yet. I have used machine to watch movies and find the quality of the picture outstanding. Small size, about 8-10" wide, fits on shelf perfectly.

    We have a special needs son who watches nothing but backyardigans on his iPad and TV in his room. Our old portable player crapped so went looking for something simple and dependable based on reviews. Been very happy with this player and bang for the buck. Can't speak to DVD movie quality for regular movies since we only use it for backyardigans.

    Purchased this DVD for my aunt so she could watch some of the movies she used to see back in her day. The picture quality and sound were crisp, clear and no issues on her 15 YO TV. She is very happy with it and was very glad to get it as she's never watched a DVD in her home. She can operate it easily which makes it perfect for her.
