LG BH100 Review

 

While the HD format war rages on, some companies are finding innovative and compelling product offerings. Unveiled at the 2007 International CES, the LG “Super Multi Blue” Player (model BH100) is the world's first dual-format high-definition DVD...

Plays back both HD DVDs and Blu-ray discs; easy to use

No HDMI 1.3 capabilities; expensive; no 1080p upconversion; poor backlight on the remote

the BH100 makes perfect sense, allowing you to enjoy high-definition movies from all studios in all formats.

LG Super Blu Player (BH100)

 

LG delivers the first set-top player that supports HD DVD and Blu-ray movies. But the BH100's HD DVD support is limited to basic playback, as it lacks the format's interactive and online capabilities as well as support for enhanced menu features.

Plays HD DVD and Blu-ray movies. Supports 1080p24 output via HDMI. Useful and well-crafted on-screen display.

Does not support interactive/online/graphical HD DVD features. Remote is missing a basic HD DVD navigation-control feature. Remote's backlight is essentially useless. No 1080p upconversion. No support for 1080p60 output.

LG BH100 Blu-ray/HD DVD Player

 

Well, no one saw this coming. We're not that far into the format war between HD DVD and Blu-ray, and LG has come out with the BH100, a player that plays both formats. So, is that it? Format war over? Hardly.

DVD upconverting isn’t very good. The image is very soft, and the color seems undersaturated. In chapter 2 of the DVD version of The Fifth Element, the professor’s beard is softer than it would look if you let most TVs do the upconversion...

Going back to those heady days of wine, roses and Laserdiscs, the general public, if aware at all of LD's existence, would yawn and claim to be interested when a recordable LD is introduced. Of course that never happened and LD is currently residing in...

First Review: LG BH100 Hybrid Blu-Ray/HD-DVD Player (Verdict: Format War Still Blazing)

 

We got the LG BH100 in the mail yesterday. It does what claims to do — be the very first high definition disc player that is compatible with both Blu-ray and HD-DVD. But don't wave the white flag in the format war quite yet. Our first grope reveals a...
