Summary: The quality of DVD's played on this are great. If you have windows 7 on your computer and have suffered from the security features of it buy this with confidence as it connected to my computer with the built in WiFi with no problems at all. Now I can stream direct from either my computer or the internet and it works 1st time!! Am waiting to see a blu-ray film on this as I think the results will be great.
Summary: My main concern before purchasing the LG BX580 3D Blu-ray Player was what actual quality can this produce (other than 3D)and how can it make a difference in playing my Standard DVD discs (I have not got any Blu-Ray discs)Also the Media/Network Computer features seemed like hard work to apply,Anyway that said I purchased this in April 2011 from Amazon approx £124 (Note-£299 from Comet!
Summary: I agonized for weeks over which Blu-Ray/media player model to get and chose this one over the other model I shortlisted - a Sony BDP-S570B. I have not been disappointed. I use this mainly as a media player but play the occasional Blu-ray disk and my main concern was that some of the music and video file formats would not play. So far, it has played every audio and video format I've thrown at it without any difficulties.
Blu Ray, high quality DVD and streaming media heaven

Summary: I don't have a lot of Blu Ray movies I have to say. Being over 40 I once had an extensive video collection that got replaced with my extensive widescreen video collection, which got replaced with my extensive DVD collection, which was supplemented by my DVD collection with directors commentaries and extras. I am very reluctant to go out and create an extensive Blu Ray collection. So a Blu Ray player was never going to be about just playing Blu Ray discs.
Summary: The BX580 is am amazing unit, plays all discs, has a great user interface, ans switches with the LG TV. The unit is wireless, and lets me play my media from my mobile phone through it onto the TV wirelessly.
Summary: I previously owned an LG Blu Ray player but after an update supplied by LG it took away the multi region function capability to play region 1 DVDs. So the shop who supplied it gave me a refund (almost a year later) so I purchased this unit (prior to purchasing a Sony - avoid like the plague) and I have no regrets! The picture quality is superb, both on DVD and Blu-Ray and WI-FI connects to my router with no problem at all.
