Excerpt: (1 items) The LG BD590 contains an internal 256GB hard drive—a unique feature for a Blu-ray player and one that does much to explain the player's $300 street price. But how useful is an internal hard drive to a Blu-ray player? Certainly it allows you to load music, photos, and home videos for easy viewing (more on the unit's excellent multimedia capabilities below), but you can use an inexpensive external hard drive for the same purpose and plug it into the BD590's USB...
Pros: 256GB internal hard drive for multimedia playback, Very good image quality, Wi-Fi, Can convert all audio formats to DTS
Cons: Larger and heavier than standard Blu-ray players, Hard drive storage has limited functionality
Excerpt: LG BD590 is the manufacturer’s flagship product and this is the first Blu-ray player in my labs to feature a built in hard drive. Through this internal memory, you can store lots of content and then watch it at your leisure. I had this player for around three days in my labs and I stored a lot of content on it by borrowing discs from my friends. I returned the discs back in no time and watch the movies when ever I had time.
Excerpt: LG Electronics has proven itself to be the most innovative manufacturer of Blu-ray players in the world. It was first to market with an HD DVD/Bluray Disc combo player (BH100), a player with Netflix streaming (BD300), and a player with 802.11n Wi-Fi (BD390). To continue its string of firsts, LG’s BD590 is the first standalone Blu-ray player to include a builtin 250-gigabyte hard drive.
