LG BD300 Network Blu-ray Player Review

BigPictureBigSound
19 February 2009
  • Conclusion: With Blu-ray players, it's only natural to want to split hairs on video performance, trying to squeeze every last drop of detail out of Blu-ray Discs. But the fact is that the differences between the performance of different players on 1080p/24 Blu-ray Discs (which encompass the vast majority of available titles) are fairly minimal. Even an average Blu-ray player represents a huge quality upgrade over standard def DVD.
  • Pros: Netflix Online Streaming and YouTube access without a PC, One of the quickest Blu-ray players to load Blu-ray Discs and standard DVDs, Decent Upconversion of Standard Def content
  • Cons: Unable to properly de-interlace 1080i content on Blu-ray Disc to 1080p, Odd placement of USB port for BD-Live, No on-board decoding of DTS-HD

  • Conclusion: The LG BD300 is the fastest Blu-ray player we've tested, and its support for Netflix Instant Streaming is a nice bonus that comes with this solid value.
  • Pros: Fast disc load times. Solid DVD upconversion. Supports Netflix Instant Streaming.
  • Cons: BD-Live functionality requires external-USB-based storage device. Some on-player controls are difficult to operate.

  • Excerpt: LG has been one of the most innovative companies out there championing Blu-ray. Early in the format war, LG tried twice to provide a solution for consumers with combo Blu-ray/HD DVD players. While its first attempt didn’t support HD DVD’s full capabilities, the follow-up BH200 was a fully functional player for both formats. It was Bonus View capable and offered Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, and 24p playback for both formats.

  • Summary: If the price were a little lower, or the image quality more consistent, the LG BD300 would be a knockout. As it stands, it's a solid player.

What Hi-Fi?

  • Conclusion: There's also a serious lack of image stability. As Meryl Streep writhes around on a rooftop singing the theme tune to Mamma Mia ! there's noticeable judder around her dark blue dungarees. Edges become frayed with any sudden movement. DVD playback is hindered by noise and a lack of sharpness. Throughout Babylon AD , Vin Diesel's face looks ill-defined and the slightest movement causes this player serious aggravation.
  • Pros: Attractive menus, Profile 2.0 support
  • Cons: Blu-ray and DVD images look substandard, sound quality isn’t much to shout about either
