LG Electronics BD390 Blu-Ray Review

 

CinemaNow, Netflix, YouTube, and DLNA streaming ; Very fast startup ; Fantastic Blu-ray image quality

Difficult-to-use remote control ; Disappointing DVD image quality

Great Blu-ray images and the best networking and streaming we've seen to date on a Blu-ray Disc player justify the LG BD390's lofty price.

LG BD390 Network Blu-ray Disc Player

 

It's been about three years since the first Blu-ray player arrived on store shelves, and aside from the Sony PlayStation 3, none has offered built-in wireless networkinguntil now. LG's BD390 Network Blu-ray Disc Player ($450 list) is the company's...

Fastest Blu-ray player on the market. Built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi. Network multimedia streaming including Netflix and YouTube

Remote control feels flimsy for pairing with a premium player. Limited peak white detail with default settings

A quick disc handler, integrated wireless networking, and solid multimedia support make the LG BD390 a capable, well-rounded Blu-ray player.

Excellent image quality on Blu-ray movies; integrated 802.11n Wi-Fi; Netflix, YouTube, and CinemaNow streaming; superfast disc loading; plays music, videos, and pictures off a connected USB drive or over network; Profile 2.0 compatible; onboard...

Costs as much as a PS3; CinemaNow doesn't stack up to Amazon Video On Demand.

The LG BD390's combination of excellent image quality, superfast loading times, and its currently unbeatable feature set make it our top choice among premium standalone Blu-ray players.

LG BD390 Blu-ray Player Preview

 

With as much a focus on network and streaming options as on video and audio performance LG's BD390 Blu-ray Player is loaded to the gills with extras. The BD390 from LG is one of few Blu-ray players to offer a built in WiFi connection. LG even one ups...

Configuring the player to connect to my wireless network was a snap. Unlike the Samsung BD-P4600, the LG found my network on its first try. Wireless performance is spotty in my home theater because of its distance to my wireless router. Once I tested...

Review: LG BD390 Blu-ray Player

 

LG's new flagship player gives you a dose of Blu-ray high performance, plus Netflix streaming and other networked media surprises.

It is amazing to me the the editor of Electronic House Magazine has such outdated equipment in his home system. It reminds me of the “amateur editors” of the old Home Theater, before they brought in the pros. As for the LG having speaker setup...
