"Never understood all the hype over blu ray. I was given the bx580 as a present and I am amazed at the difference. I have several LG products from mobile phones to microwave and am very impressed with the quality. On the blu ray player if you have the accu-weather feature enabled when you go to the Netcast function the background mimics the actual conditions outside. Like if its cloudy the background is cloudy, At night the lights come on in the buildings. Is this required, Probably not but shows the level of detail put into these products!"

"The quality for the price is excellent with this handsome unit. I have no immediate need for 3D, but the price allowed me to purchase a player with this feature so I'll be ready for a future 3D TV upgrade. I have a secure wireless network in my home and Wifi was the main attraction of this unit. Blu-Ray disks look fabulous. Netflix and other online video works smoothly. I have had some problems with the unit connecting consistently with my wireless network. It will connect flawlessly for days and then not connect, requiring me to retype my rather lengthy WEP password. Then it will connect well for several more days. Online software update of the new unit took quite a while and took a couple of tries to get the download to complete. This may be more the fault of my network All said I would definitely buy it again. As a matter of fact I bought the non -3D version of this player, the BX570, for the bedroom TV."
Best Features: Style/Design, Easy to use, Features/Settings, wireless n mkv & mp4 streaming!
Cons: player menu - bad graphics and sluggish reponse
"I replaced a 1.5 year-old Samsung BD-P1500 that bricked on me during a firmware upgrade. This player is miles ahead of the Samsung in terms if usability and picture quality. Setup was easy. I've connected via wireless N to my PC and I'm streaming AVI's, MKV's and MP4's with only a few hiccups! One thing to note is when I first set this up, I was using another DLNA server on my PC and had lots of problems. Once I installed the supplied Nero 4 server, all was good. LG - please change the horrible player menu interface in a future firmware update. The underwater / ice cube thing is awful, and it is sluggish to navigate. This is the reason I gave Quality and Ease of Use 4 stars."
