Video Features

Digital Noise Reduction

This means that the device is able to reduce more noise with the help of a digital processor.

It is a system that tries to filter out “digital noise”, aka picture distortion. This distortion can occur for many different reasons. Anything from the very power used to operate the device to the lights (LED) on the front of the player itself.

Yes
x.v. Color
A new color space that allows compatible units to view up to 1.8 times as many colors as sRGB (the previous standard that began in 1996)
Yes
3:2 Pulldown

This means that the devices will enhance the framerate of older videos to play smoothly on the display set.

Film is usually shot in 24 frames per second with 2 fields per frame. One field for the even lines, and one for the odd. The standard NTSC broadcast is 30 frames per second. To achieve this frames have to be created to sustain a smooth image. So out of every 4 frames, a 5th frame is created by combining opposite fields of consecutive frames, in turn creating a new frame so the outcome will be 30 frames from 24.

Example:
AA|BB|CC|DD to AA|BB|BC|CD|DD

Yes
24p Playback
This means that the device will allow the media to play at it's original recorded framerate. It is a feature that allows the video image to be transferred as it was originally recorded, at 24 frames per second. This feature ensures that you will be watching “movie theater” quality without any “judder” that would occur with some 3:2 pulldown.
Yes
Blu-ray
Blu-ray discs offer video in "Full HD" at a 1080p resolution for exceptionally vivid, lifelike images. They also allow for higher quality surround sound to be encoded on the discs, as well as much more information due to the data storage capacity on a Blu-ray disc being much larger than a standard DVD. A dual layer Blu-ray disc can fit 50GB of data compared to 4.7GB for a regular DVD!
Yes

A solid dvd/bluray player with wifi

December 9, 2010

I bought this specific model after much research into the Bluray players with built in network access. I specifically wanted to use this in order to stream Netflix to our TV in the living room without running any cables. I was skeptical about using the Wifi to stream movies but after months of use I have never once seen any loss of picture quality and the movies never have to stop to buffer or load the next scenes. I have also used this device with regular DVD movies as well as bluray disks and have had no issues. All in all a great device that fills a specific need very well.

Outstanding Product and a great buying experience

December 10, 2010

6 months ago I bought my LG BD 570 player from Sonic after doing some pricing research and product reviews online. I had not originally heard of Sonic Electronix, but after reading a number of reviews about it I decided to give it a try. I was very impressed. Price was outstanding. Shipping was VERY fast. And I have absolutely loved my new LG Blu-ray. I'm happy to come back here for any of my electronic needs now and I have already recommended the site to some friends who were shopping for new blu-ray players.

The LG BD 570 itself is a very solid player. It is now about 6 months old and there may be newer models but I have not had a single playback issue with it. My picture is clean, and the playback is seemless. I have had some issues with some scratched DVD discs from Netflix, however cleaning them off usually fixed the issue. The load time for a new disc is acceptable and the software update feature, while slow to load if the patch is big, has worked each time without a hiccup.

Strongly recommend this player.

Great price performance, simple and versatile

August 25, 2010

I have enjoyed this product from day one (I have had it for 6 months). The product has performed as advertised, and performed well. The Bluray/DVD disc performance, has played everything. The NetFlix streaming, flawless (standard definition only). PC streaming/DLNA has been outstanding. I have connected both wired and wirelessly. I maintain a wired connection due to the bitrate associated with some of the bluray content being streamed to maintain a constant, smooth picture quality. Also, it is rare that a video/audio format is not recognized and played (.avi, .mkv, AC3, DTS, etc.). LG continues to do a nice job in sending out regular updates to the firmware and or software. However, customer support at LG needs to come along in the area of networking.
What I like most about the BD570 is that it is simple to use, all aspects, and for the entire family. You can have the power of an HTPC behind the scenes, but with a user-friendly remote control that everyone will appreciate for DVD, Bluray, NetFlix and PC streaming playback.
Compared to the BD390 (its predecessor), the controls are better positioned (disc tray open/close on the side it should be), although I'm not a big fan of the full frontal door( I liked the BD390 design better). Also, the chassis of the BD570 vs. the BD390 is smaller and appears more flimsy than the BD390. Repair history on the BD570 much better though. I have not had any problems!

I would recommend this Blu-Ray player to anyone. The Internet connection has been most enjoyable. The only negative so far has nothing to do with the product. The Netcast sometimes will not open; however that does not happen often. Sometimes just giving it a few minutes and trying again is all that it takes. Overall, no complaints.

LG BD570 - great unit

October 26, 2010

The BD570 is a great Blu Ray / dvd player. Simple to set up, fantastic wireless reception. Since it's very difficult to cable my master bedroom enterment center, the wireless BD570 has been perfact. Netflix, VUDU, etc all load in seconds and play flawlessly. Great blu ray. Avitar looks spetacular on my 50" Visio plasma. The download updates take a long time to add, but mostly because new Net cast online network additions. I do wish there was a subtitle button on the remote, which would alleviate having to go to setup on a disc. This is a very fine unit.

I bought this not only to play blue ray and DVD but to connect to Netflix so I could download movies. It has been working flawlessly and is easy to operate. It picks up my house wifi very well. Only problem I had was shipping damage on the first set sent to me. The return took longer than it should have - several weeks but they sent a replacement eventually.

August 16, 2010

We have had the BD570 for over 6 months now and could not be happier with it. The wireless connectivity is top notch allowing us to stream Netflix, Home Media, You Tube as well as many other streaming options. Along with the convenience of wireless streaming the player also is superb as a Blu-Ray player. The picture is outstanding and it up converts our old DVD discs very well. Updates are downloaded seamlessly which has kept our player up to date and working without issue. We highly recommend this player to anyone and you cannot beat the value for the price you pay!

Does everything I expected

November 3, 2010

The BD 570 has performed without flaw for the last six months. It seems that everything is going wireless internet, but it is still a great value for a DVD player. The only problem that I have is the signal strength - my wireless modem is in my living room and the 570 is in the bedroom, so I sometimes have to open the cabinets they are in to get a constant signal, so if the distance in your house is relatively far apart, make sure you have enough strength to not loose signal.

Really Great Player

October 27, 2010

This was just the BD player I was looking for. It has beautiful playback. Abundant features that I wasn't really looking for in the first place. And best of all, it plays any kind of downloaded movie from the internet through the USB port on the front. I've gotten quite used to leaving my external hard drive plugged in and watching what I like when I like.

Up-converts standard DVDs to HD playback sometimes un-watchable

January 4, 2011

Though say 1080P DVD up-conversion, I've tried many HDMI v1.3 or v1.3a or v1.3b cables to link up my Sharp LCD, but in vain to play back normally. Somtimes have pictures and sounds, sometimes have sounds but no picture. I took it to the dealer (Fortress) using the same Sharp LCD model in the shop for playback or even with the shop's display product of LG BD570, still appears the same problem. Then, I took it to LG for repair services, but returned with the same problem. I now buy another Pioneer BD player, no such problem at all.

Amazing Player!!

November 2, 2010

I have it hooked up to a 60" Mitsubishi DLP and the picture quality is amazing!!! The built in Wireless-N has worked flawlessly out of the box and the feature set with Pandora, Netflix, and Vuduu to name a few add a tremendous value. I only gave it 4 stars for look/design because you have to flip down the front to get to the USB and 4 stars for features because there is no 3D upgrade. But as far as quality and performance for the price this is a superior product that I would definitely recommend!
