Default LG High-Definition DVD Player

Iv never heard of LG before so im geussing this is a new company that just came out? I seen alot of LG products in best buy the other day from LG that dident look to bad. I was looking threw the upscale dvd players out there and i came across this one? Specificly, this model dosent mention anything about upconverting to a 1080i signal or any signal for that matter and it says in a "soild" way "HD DvD Player"? So im curious if this is a real HD player? Cause from what i read on this board were months away from official Hd players?

P.S. It actually dose use the word "upconvert" which i missed. Still any feedback on this company and there products would be great. thanks

Another acronym for LG is Lucky Goldstar since the company used to be called Goldstar. You probably remember them from the cheaper brand of electronics over the last 20 years or so in the USA. They changed their name to re-invent themselves as an upscale brand. They did also buy Zenith to have as their "average" brand.

I tried their DLPs model 44SZ63D and it was junk! I went through 6 of them because I loved the cabinet look and the speakers underneath was needed to fit in the spot where the TV was going.

I also tried the LG 418 model upscale DVD player that my friend bought and returned before he brough it back. It pushed green like all LG video products seem to do.

I would run not walk away from any LG video products.

I`d be more inclined to agree with PFC5 ,Lucky Gold star is how I`d classify the quality.

I bought a Zenith CRT 65" last year and returned it shortly there after, It was made very cheaply, Burned the phosphor in the green gun after a week of use.

The Rear proj. LCD`s have some of the worst screen door effect I`v witnessed.

LG also has a joint-venture with Philips. A factory that manufactures LCD TVs. I think, that it is in South Korea. Which, by the way, is where Sony-Samsung also has a joint-venture factory that manufactures LCD TVs.
I agree that the LG 418 is not worth the money. Like all of the upconversion players, it mostly a marketing scheme.

That LG player is garbage. It will only display copy-protected dvds in 480p. It doesn't come with an HDMI cable either. Get the Toshiba SD-5980. It has the memory card reader and comes with an HDMI cable. In LG's defense, I have seen some pretty cool LG products, their current DLP is badass.
