LG BD570 Network Blu-ray Disc Player Reviews

Reliable player with good picture quality

Posted

Pros: Strong, reliable wireless connection, good quality upconversion of DVDs

Cons: limited streaming selection, Netflix bugs, average User interface

The LG BD570 is my first Blu-ray player, and was a key part of my home theater upgrade that started in 2011. First of all, how does this player do with playing physical disks? Overall, I'm very happy with the BD570's performance and image quality. When I first bought it, my wife and housemates questioned whether there would really be a significant difference between DVDs and Blu-rays, but the difference was obvious from the very first tests we ran. We compared "Inception" on DVD and Blu-ray, playing through an Epson Powerlight 8350 projector.

LG BD570 Network Blu-Ray Disc Player with Premium Apps and WiFi streaming

Posted

Pros: Easy to set up and use, Great HD video 60/24, upscales to 1080p, audio passthrough, HDMI, USB ports can connect ext HDD, wireless n built in, Apps

Cons: only 2ch audio analogue,(does have opt/co ax digital) Netflix app is not the best, front flap cant close with usb usage,

I knew about this, since it was a network device and had the 'Passthrough' ability, I figured it would suffice for 99% of my usage, and it has. I had been able to pass through any True HD and DTS MasterAudiio 5.1 and 7.1 discs. I have an Onkyo tx sr608 avr, by the way. I have used this and gotten all software and firmware updates available. had to use the usb port for one or 2 firmware updates. all went off without any issues at all. The thing just keeps on...

Pretty Decent

Pros: Connects to Windows SMD/CIFS Shares, WIFI, Attractive Design, Simpilink works with current LG TV, Plays majority of Digital File formats: MP4, MKV...

Cons: Netflix App has no search function, Some titles in Netflix app are slow to resolve to HD, and may need up to 5 minutes to eliminate jerky motion.

I have had this player for over a year, perhaps two. I no longer am sure when or for how much I bough it. It has been a very reliable electronic appliance for my family. We use it mainly for the "Home-Link" feature -- LG's name for LAN-based digital media sharing. I run a Windows Server 2008 R2 domain at home, and have a dedicated RAID with redundancy for my video library. Running Serviio DLNA media server now, but for the first 18 months or so, we used plain-old SMB/CIFS shares authenticated with domain credentials. Occasionally, we come across a MKV file that won't play, typically with DTS audio. Simply going back to the PC and running "AudioConverter" for PC and selecting "Cleanup DTS...
