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

Best BluRay Player on the Market

September 29, 2010

I have been very satisfied with this product and have no complaints. This unit does periodic updates of its own software from time to time since it does connect to the internet and I know I have seen it do this at least twice in the six months that I have owned mine, so it keeps up to date on own. I copied my entire music collection, approximately 200 CDs, onto its massive 250 GB hard drive and while I converted their format from WAV to MP3 to further compress the data from my computer then made the wifi connection to move them over to the unit’s hard drive. 250 GB is a pretty sizable space and they hardly took up any space whatsoever. Now I have to figure out how I’m going to use the rest of the hard drive since I don’t collect photographs or movies on my computer. The only drawback I see is that the LG music software on the unit which doesn’t make a Playlists that you can pop in for parties. I suppose I could do this on my computer and transfer it to the BluRay’s hard-drive, but it would be nice if the unit’s software was a little more advanced and easier to use for this purpose. I use the internet movie downloads the most instead of driving to the video store to rent the latest movies. I like the Vudu and CinemaNow services that come with the software the best. The NetFlix software wants you to pay monthly for their service whether you use it or not and their selection appeared to be just older movies, so I don’t bother with that. I do have problems with the Vudu selection, however, as I pay for 1080p quality streaming and the transfer stream doesn’t come in fast enough and it pauses my movie while it recalculates/buffers which is very annoying and frustrating if you have guest over to watch a movie. This is no reflection on the player as I believe this is more of a function of the Vudu service not having the proper equipment to do proper streaming of its signal during peak hours. I updated my router to try to fix this problem with a relatively expensive replacement which had better faster connections to the computer and I know I have the best internet speed my cable company offers. Now I just purchase HD quality feeds for a buck less. If you already have an extensive BluRay collection or plan to buy them in the future, I have no complaints with this unit. Another one of the built in free services that comes in the internet entertainment package is Pandora, the free internet streaming music service. I have used this extensively when I’m just working around the house and want some background music to listen to. All in all, this is a great entertainment unit with a bunch of great possibilities whether you throw a lot of parties or just want some popcorn and watch a good movie for an evening from your own DVD/BluRay collection or via the internet via streaming wifi/internet connections. I highly recommend this product.

LG BD590 (BD 590) Blu-Ray Player

January 14, 2011

The LG Blu-Ray player is simply outstanding. I purchased it because it was rated by Consumer Reports as the best in its class, and I wholeheartedly agree with their assessment. It is a great companion to our Bose home theater system.

Blu Ray + Online Services you need

November 13, 2010

We needed a full suite of online services (specifically NetFlix, MLB.com, and Pandora) plus a Blu Ray disk player. This box worked perfectly. In addition new services (like DivX TV) had opened up new viewing opportunities we did not originally imagine.

Overall - a very good deal.

Better after firmware upgrade

February 23, 2011

Product had nice features and a good price. The networking aspect was very inconsistent. I thought it might be router and bought one well know for distance of connections and still had same problems. After a couple firmware updates it now works as expected. Overall, I would not buy a LG unit again. I probably should have called customer support. When problem involves two products, it's common for each vendor to say the other product is the problem and that discouraged me from attempting customer support options, because it really pisses me off when companies do the finger pointing game at one another. It could be they could have shipped me out firmware update and all would have been good if I called. The product as delivered fell short on netwoking and was a real pain.

Awsome Player

August 1, 2010

This player was super easy to set up and connect to my network. Does everything that was described. The on board hard drive just sends this player over the top. Only draw back I can see is how the front panel has to open to load the discs, would have been better design if they would have allowed discs to be loaded without panel having to open.
