LG BD 370

  • Conclusion: The LG is an excellent, cheap, entry-level model, scoring highly with its fast, quiet disc drive and easy YouTube access, without neglecting the essentials - great DVD and Blu-ray playback quality. The straightforward menu structure and the changing colors of the control panel keep operation fun and simple, but you cannot, unfortunately, switch off the display while watching movies in the dark home-theater.
  • Pros: Excellent 24p movie picture., YouTube access., Fast, quiet disc drive., Bitstream output of HD audio., Easy operation.
  • Cons: No decoder for DTS-HD.

  • Conclusion: Unless you fancy playing games on a PS3, you won't find a better Blu-ray player right now for such a small sum. The picture, the menus, the innovative net features: they ought to cost more. We don't really care how LG's conjured this bit of price wizardry, just be sure to scope out your ethernet connections before you buy.
  • Pros: Visually, this little piano black box is a serious looker: it's slim, light and polished. Blu-rays boot up fast, with lovely crisp video slung to your screen you'd expect from a box much bigger in size and price. Upscaled DVDs, meanwhile, won't make you feel like you need to upgrade your whole library. YouTube works a treat too: it's well presented, and matched by the excellent user interface. Just try not to spend too long looking at all those pretty menus: Blu-rays ...
  • Cons: Internet access is a nifty feature on a Blu-ray player this cheap, but ethernet connections are a pain if you don't have a spare one near your TV. Where's the Wi-Fi? That and the YouTube videos won't stream in HD even if there is such an option on YouTube's regular website.

  • Excerpt: (1 items) LG BD370LG's BD370 can stream Internet video from CinemaNow, Netflix On Demand, and YouTube to your HDTV. Even by the high standards of Blu-ray Disc players, the BD370 transfers Blu-ray disc images with terrific clarity. The BD370's performance was dead-even with that of its sibling, the BD390 ( ), on all but one component of our tests (brightness, where the BD370 was ever so slightly better).
  • Pros: Fantastic Blu-ray image quality, Speedy startup, CinemaNow, Netflix On Demand and YouTube
  • Cons: Annoying front panel, Disappointing DVD image quality, Difficult-to-use remote control

PC Magazine
24 November 2009
  • Conclusion: The LG BD370 Network Blu-ray Disc Player's fast disc-handling speed and slick styling are tempered by subpar DVD upconversion performance.
  • Pros: Stylish, clean design. Fast start-up and disc-loading speeds. Streams Netflix and YouTube video.
  • Cons: Below-average DVD upconversion. Poor image quality with 1080i video sources. Optional memory required for BD-Live support.

LG BD370 NetCast Blu-ray Player Review

BigPictureBigSound
20 April 2009
  • Conclusion: The LG BD370 is a nice successor to the original BD300. It's clear that manufacturers need to add more compelling features to their products than just disc playback. Bare-bones DVD players from 3rd-tier makers brought that market down quickly so that the big names couldn't make a profit on even a quality DVD player.
  • Pros: Fast disc load times., Easy-to-use onscreen interface., If you already have a Netflix acount, the Instant movies don't cost you any extra.
  • Cons: Network content is highly compressed as best, and doesn't compare to true HD., Videophiles will have little interest in YouTube., Remote is not backlit for use in a dark room., The front USB port requires you to leave a panel open at all times if you want to use BD Live.

The LG BD370 is an excellent entry-level Blu-ray player for any home theatre system.

  • Summary: The LG BD370 Blu-ray player is an excellent entry-level option. The very good DVD upscaling, Blu-ray movie picture quality, BD-Live connectivity and USB playback already make it worth the price tag, but the ability to connect to YouTube makes this one of the best budget Blu-ray players we've seen.
  • Pros: Excellent DVD upscaling, very good Blu-ray picture quality, can connect to YouTube, can play and display media from USB 2.0 thumb drives, BD-Live capable
  • Cons: No 7.1-channel analog outputs

What Hi-Fi?
7 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Considering the price and the specification, hopes around here were high for the LG BD370. It has all the core features bar on-board decoding to analogue outputs, and even manages to include a USB input and Ethernet socket. This latter gives access to the BD Live content of certain discs and, as the prominent sticker on the machine indicates, allows streaming of YouTube videos (with the usual ‘check with your broadband provider' caveats).
  • Pros: Good spec, good build, attractive price, does fine work with movement and colours
  • Cons: HD images are soft and short of detail, upscales DVDs through gritted teeth, sound lacks substance
