4 out of 5 stars   I have bought two two of these BD590's
By mailace (Northern NJ) December 26, 2010
Review submitted for LG BD590 250GB HD Network Blu-Ray Disc Player (LGBD590)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Upgradeable, Good Connections, Excellent Image Quality, Good Soundtrack Support, Easy Set-Up, DVD Upconversion, Backwards Compatible
Cons: Slow Load Time
Other Comments: Wi-Fi to Internet connectivity make this unit enormously useful. You can connect to Netflix or any of the streaming video services easily and so have access to hundreds of thousands of movies of all types. With Netflix $7.99 a month cherge for unlimited number of movies everyone else may go out of business and this BD player connects with ease. Plus it has a 500Gb internal hard drive so you can store videos, photos, whatever you want from your own collections or from any device on your home wireless network. Two thumbs up for sure.

4 out of 5 stars   50-50
By Tlock (Riverside, California) December 15, 2010
Review submitted for LG BD590 250GB HD Network Blu-Ray Disc Player (LGBD590)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good Soundtrack Support, Good Connections, Easy Set-Up, Excellent Image Quality
Cons: Won't download upgrades
Other Comments: I bought two of these players, one of them setup flawlessly, downloaded the update software rightaway and was up and running on my wireless network in 15 minutes. The other player however, did not update the software sucessfully. It would find the update and try to install, but would fail before finishing. The LG website for software downloads is not user friendly and needs serious reworking. The tech support is trying , but results are lacking. To top it off, LG support says they won't replace the player with a new one, they will only repair my "new" player. I hope management will see the light!

4 out of 5 stars   Lots of entertainment in one little box
By Bungal (Gulf Coast, MS) December 05, 2010
Review submitted for LG BD590 250GB HD Network Blu-Ray Disc Player (LGBD590)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Lots of features, Upgradeable, Excellent Image Quality
Cons: Difficult Set-Up
Other Comments: I've had this unit for almost 3 months now, so I've had a chance to use most of it's features. Starting with connection and set-up: Well, my home theater system is somewhat complicated now, so I needed some help. The Phone tech support folks at LG were very helpful - detailed in their explanations. I found the set-up menu a little undaunting, but again the tech support got me through that. What really sold me on this unit, are the many features it offers in one slim box. One of the main reasons I purchased the BD590, is because it accepts a variety of media: from disc, USB connection, and shared files from your computer; and of course the 250GB of storage space. However, the music library feature needs some improvement. For one of the CDs I archived, Gracenote failed to find the correct artist/album. I was able to re-name it in the "directory mode" in the music library, but the new names didn't carry over into the "library mode". Also, after archiving a CD, the library mode shows only the name of the album, not the artist. Adding the artist (re-naming it) is a long process using the key pads. I absolutely love the Netcast feature, and it's upgradability. It just recently upgraded to include Internet TV. Also, I like the variety of movie streaming services, and especially Pandora radio! I don't have much use for the Home Link feature. 90% of the songs I have downloaded on my computer were via itunes - so since the BD590 cannot accept M4p files, they can't be played - unless I convert the files, of course. So, I'll just plug in the Ipod to my stereo! The picture quality I found very good - even the HD streamed movies. So, I think the unit has only a few bugs to be worked out. Overall, I am thoroughly enjoying my newest entertainment device!
