LG_BD670_Blu-ray_player_review.jpgThe BD670 ($229.99) is one of the LG's top-shelf 2011 Blu-player features, just a notch below the BD690 ($349.99) that incorporates a 250GB hard drive for personal media storage. We have not performed a hands-on review of the BD670, but here is a more comprehensive overview of its features. This player supports 3D playback, and it includes LG's Smart TV Web/media platform, which includes video-on-demand services, access to the LG Apps store, and DLNA media streaming. Netflix, VUDU, CinemaNow, YouTube, Pandora, and Picasa are among the available services. The BD670 features integrated 802.11n for a wireless network connection. It lacks the 2D-to-3D conversion found in some similarly priced players.

The BD670's video outputs include HDMI, component video (SD only), and composite video. The player lacks the second HDMI output found on some higher-end 3D models (which is desirable when trying to mate a 3D player with an older, non-3D-ready A/V receiver). The video setup menu offers multiple picture modes, including a user mode in which you can adjust contrast, brightnes, color, sharpness, and noise reduction. There are no advanced 3D adjustments. On the audio side, in addition to HDMI, the BD670 offers optical digital and stereo analog audio outputs. The player has onboard Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding, and it also passes these high-resolution audio formats in their native bitstream form over HDMI, for your A/V receiver to decode.

The BD670 supports playback of BD, DVD, CD audio, AVCHD, Divx HD, WMV, AVI, WMA, MP3, WAV, JPEG, and PNG. You can add the player to your home network using either an Ethernet port or the internal 802.11n. The BD670 lacks internal memory to store BD-Live content; a front-panel USB port is provided for this purpose. This port also supports music, photo, and movie playback. The player lacks advanced control ports, such as RS-232 or IR.
