LG BD570

 

As long as you don't need 3D compatibility, the LG BD570 offers the same mix of solid Blu-ray playback and media streaming that made its predecessor a hit.

Excellent Blu-ray image quality; Netflix, Vudu, YouTube, Pandora, and CinemaNow streaming; built-in Wi-Fi; plays music, videos, and pictures off a connected USB drive or via network.

Does not support 3D Blu-ray; no quick-start mode, which makes it feel slower compared with some other players; media interface is overdesigned; no onboard storage; must change the output mode to 1080p.

When we reviewed LG's BD390 ($450, ) Blu-ray disc player last year, we were impressed with its quick disc handling and networking prowess. We're happy to report that the company's new BD570 ($299.99 list) builds on the BD390's success, delivering even...

Very fast load times. Wi-Fi enabled. Lots of Internet content streaming options

Finicky remote buttons. So-so upconversion performance

The LG BD570 is a full-featured Blu-ray player offering wired and wireless network connectivity, excellent HD imagery, and speedy disc loading. Its standard definition quality is a tad noisy, however, and the included remote control is difficult to use.

If you do not mind the minor flaws, such as limited standard DVD upscaling and poorly designed remote, then by all means this may just be the Blu-Ray player for you. The LG BD570 combines the connectivity of integrated wireless and wired networking...

LG BD570 review – Excellent Blu-ray quality, lacks 3D playback

 

LG BD390 was the first “must buy” Blu-ray disc player with 7.1 analog audio ports; inbuilt storage; good range of streaming services; and inbuilt Wi-Fi. Now, the company has launched its new product – $250 priced LG BD570, which is less as compared...

Perfect picture quality; inbuilt Wi-Fi; online streaming services such as CinemaNow, Pandora, YouTube, Vudu, Netflix, Picasa, and Weather; plays photos, videos and music through USB drive or DLNA compatible networked computer

No inbuilt storage; over-designed media interface; no quick-start mode; missing support for 3D Blu-ray; need to change up to 1080p output mode

If you need an affordable Blu-ray disc player and can work without onboard storage and quick start mode, then you can buy LG BD5700. However, if you need onboard storage then you can go for LG BD590 and think about Sony BDP-S570 for 3D playback.

We love the clean lines and sleek design of the LG BD570; the fantastic video and audio features aren't half bad either. We only wish this Blu-ray player had surround sound capabilities. If you're looking for a player with 7.1 channel audio output,...

A protective cover shields the disc tray and buttons, making the player look sleek

Surround sound isn’t possible because it doesn’t have a 7.1 channel audio output

This player has all the best features if you don’t mind sacrificing surround sound.

The LG BD570 builds on the success of last year's  BD390 by offering all the useful features like built-in Wi-Fi, excellent blu-ray playback, DLNA capability, and an expanded suite of streaming services but at a much lower price.

The LG BD570 offers a neat hi-def playback solution for those who have an HDMI-equipped receiver. It has useful set of networking features and a robust suite of NetCast streaming services wrapped in a very cost effective package. Highly recommended.

Is it a media streamer that can play Blu-rays, or vice-versa?

Comprehensive networking capabilities ; Good BD performance

No internal memory for BD-Live ; Only one front-mounted USB slot

A fully-loaded Blu-ray player with streaming functionality and extensive format support.

Not much wrong with Blu-ray images, but this isn't the all-rounder some rivals are

Lovely, lustrous Blu-ray pictures; decent spec, good build, nice looks

Not the best DVD upscaler around and strangely inhibited sound

Has a beautiful picture, upscales DVD's well, and it looks slick
