Its finally here and we have been waiting. The LG BD590 is the Blu-ray player with a built-in hard drive large enough to hold plenty of music and movies. For those of you that have been waiting for the right moment to invest in a Blu-ray disc player, the moment is now! The BD590 is the step up from the LG BD570 and contains many of the same features, however there are some big differences that are important to know, especially for those that are in the market for a high-end Blu-ray player. The most notable difference is the internal hard drive of the BD 590. It offers 250 GB HDD that is large enough to hold up to 35 high-definition movies! If you don’t have an entire HD movie collection, the 250 GB of storage can also hold 160 standard definition movies or 88,000 MP3 songs! That enables you to access hours, even days, worth of entertainment from an internal source. No more messing around with losing DVDs or trying to keep your favorite discs clean. Now you can hold your favorite movies and music directly on the internal hard drive! The other notable difference between the two Blu-ray players is the front face. Both players have great looks, however the black and silver face of the BD 570 seems less alluring then the stunning finish of the 590. The mirrored, teal finish is the perfect complement to any room but looks especially good in a home theater room.
These Blu-ray players also come with a wide variety of connections that make these units compatible with just about any receiver or television that you are connecting it too. They feature component video, composite video, HDMI, digital coaxial, digital optical, an Ethernet LAN port, and USB connections. Connect the LG BD 590 or the LG BD 570 to the internet using the rear Ethernet port and you will unlock a world of online content. The NetCast Entertainment system allows online content to stream instantly to your television. Some of these online services include Netflix, Vudu, CinemaNow, Pandora, AccuWeather, YouTube, and more! Now you can get online and enjoy the internet without having to be at your computer. For the latest in Blu-ray technology, check out the LG BD 590 for the ultimate experience.
