LG BD670 Review: Superb Blu-ray Quality, and Disc Bookmarking, Too

 

Exceptional image quality, a generous selection of streaming Internet services, bookmarking features, and 3D make the LG BD670 Blu-ray Disc player a standout. Its menus and interface are a little rough around the edges, so it's clumsier to use than...

Fantastic selection of Internet apps ; Can bookmark any Blu-ray or DVD ; Superb image quality

Smartphone apps don't support QWERTY text entry ; On-screen menus not always friendly ; Pricey

Great image quality, a huge selection of Internet entertainment, 3D Blu-ray support, and some cool extras make the LG BD670 one of the best Blu-ray players around. But the $180 price tag may turn off bargain shoppers.

LG BD670

 

With every manufacturer adding bells and whistles to try to make its Blu-ray player stand out from the crowd, the LG BD670's no-frills approach ironically is what stands out. Instead of adding features of dubious worth (2D-to-3D conversion,...

The LG BD670 has built-in Wi-Fi and an excellent suite of streaming-media services, including Netflix, Amazon Instant, Vudu, MOG, Napster, and vTuner. The user interface for its streaming-media service content portal is also top-notch, making it a good...

The LG BD670 has slower-than-average disc-loading speeds and lacks onboard memory for accessing BD-Live features

Despite disc-loading speeds that are just average, the LG BD670's built-in Wi-Fi and excellent streaming-media suite make it one of the best Blu-ray player values.

LG BD670 3D Blu-ray Player Reviewed

 

Adrienne Maxwell takes a look at the LG BD670 Blu-ray player and its features and capabilities to see how the player measures up against other modern players available at a similar price.

The BD670 supports 3D playback ; The player has internal decoding and bitstream output of high-resolution audio sources ; It supports BD-Live and BonusView/PIP Blu-ray features ; The player features integrated WiFi, as well as a wired network...

The BD670 lacks dual HDMI outputs to send separate signals to your 3DTV and A/V receiver ; It also lacks multichannel analog audio outputs, so it's not the best choice for someone who owns an older, non-HDMI A/V receiver ; The player doesn't offer...

With a street price under $200, LG's BD670 is a good value for a player with 3D capability, integrated WiFi, DLNA media streaming, and a comprehensive selection of Web services. It lacks a few options that you can find at this price, such as internal...

LG BD670 3D Wi-Fi Blu-ray Player Review

 

One player to rule your living room.

Brilliant Blu-ray playback; Great DVD upscaling; Smooth network streaming; Firmware updates improve & add functionality; Built-in Wi-Fi

Slow menu browsing for USB devices; Firmware updates can get slow; Limited channels in UAE

First off, it can play 3D movies, in case that wasn’t obvious from the name. Next up, it has dual-band Wi-Fi (b/g/n), so you can connect to your existing home setup and can access the various channels and Smart functionalities of this player without...

LG BD670 Blu-ray 3D PlayerReview

 

LG is no longer interested in playing second fiddle to the likes of Panasonic and Samsung and with the BD670 Blu-ray 3D player, they are dragging out the big guns.

LG has played second fiddle to Panasonic, Samsung, and Sony for far too many years, but with the BD670 Blu-ray 3D player, they come to the party packing some substantial steel. While not inexpensive, the player delivers excellent Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D...

LG BD670 3D Player

 

Looks aren't everything. Take the LG BD670, it isn't much to look at compared with sleeker, more stylish Blu-ray players, but it offers a fantastic feature set, including 3D support, and solid performance at an affordable price.<p

Built-in Wi-Fi. Wide selection of Web services. Solid performance

Physical buttons on the front make the player look less-than-stylish. Mediocre DVD upconversion

It's not the prettiest Blu-ray player on the block, but the 3D-ready LG BD670 is a workhorse loaded with plenty of features for the price.

The increasingly fervent 3D feature has heralded the introduction of the LG's answer to the future, the LG BD670. It boasts of a built in Wi-Fi and the impressive ability to play you 3D titles in HD, which were previously unavailable to its predecessors.

With the LG BD670, LG looks set to put its stamp on the 3D blu-ray market. The BD670’s impressive ability to play 3D movies and its wide assortment of appealing features makes it a highly desirable 3D blu-ray player.

Consumer review by:

"Don't buy this unit if you want to stream Netflix."

 

I couldn't agree more with this reviewer - every points he makes is 100 percent valid and fits totally with my experience. The BD670 is BIG piece of junk and trouble for streaming Netflix.

Can't think of any....

The reviewer has made the case for not buying this unit if you intend to stream Netflix.

Consumer review by:

"DO NOT BUY THIS DVD PLAYER!"

 

This DVD player was an absolute waste of money. I should have listened to the user reviews instead of the CNET review. I made a massive mistake. We specifically bought this to stream Netflix, and it only works around 10% of the time. It also frequently...

It was easy to set up, but that is the only good thing that can be said about it.

::will not stream Netflix

Consumer review by:

"Streaming is a disaster."

 

If you want to watch streaming videos through NetFlix, don't even think about it.

Plays Blu-Ray and DVD's fine.

There are severe problems with the streaming for NetFlix. I experience constant issues with lockups that are so bad even the power button on the machine does not work and I have to physically pull the plug to get it to respond.
