Thanks to a winning combination of remarkable Blu-ray image quality and seemingly boundless networking possibilities, the LG BD390 won our affection.
Okay, so LG's player comes in at the higher end of the price spectrum -- but we think it's worth it, for a few reasons. You can connect to the Internet over an Ethernet connection or through the system’s built-in Wi-Fi (this is one of the few budget players to offer such an option).
In addition to integrated Wi-Fi, the LG BD390 comes with everything you’d expect from a quality Blu-ray player, including 7.1-channel HD audio, a USB port for viewing multimedia, 1GB of on-board memory and DivX playback support.
Unfortunately, the less-than-perfect remote requires some getting used to due to the sluggish buttons. Nevertheless, the BD390 remains a winner.
Pros: Integrated Wi-Fi, superb BD image quality, good DVD upscaling, fast load times
Cons: Expensive, remote needs improvement
