It's got streaming capabilities, built-in WiFi, and of course, 3D Blu-ray compatibility.
The BX580 from LG includes everything we've come to expect from the Blu-ray players of 2010. It's connected, it's 3D capable and it's slick looking.
Thanks to a built-in WiFi connection, you'll be able to jump onto services like Netflix, CinemaNow, Vudu and YouTube to enjoy all the best that the internet has to offer. If going wireless isn't your thing, you can still run an Ethernet cord.
The BX580 handles 3D Blu-ray discs and sports an HDMI 1.4 output as you might expect. It upscales DVDs to 1080p and shows Blu-rays at the same. The spec sheet says it's got "Superior Audio Performance," but doesn't elaborate on what exactly that means.
You can pick up the BX580 for a price of $349.
