CES 2010 Wrap-up: The Top Five Blu-ray Players

HighDefDigest: Another consumer electronics show has come and gone, and while it's fun to marvel at each new piece of equipment, it doesn't mean anything until we know how it all lines up.

To start things off, we've taken a look at all the standalone Blu-ray players revealed at the Consumer Electronics Show – many of which we got to go hands on with – and we've pitted them against each other until only five remained.

'1.) LG BD590 - LG stepped up big this year with the BD590. It’s got built in WiFi connectivity that lets it connect to any 802.11n wireless home network and, of course, wireless g and b networks as well. It’s DLNA compliant so you can stream audio and video from your home computer and it’s got access to some pretty cool online services like Netflix and Vudu. Oh, and did we mention a 250GB hard drive?

The BD590 is the first Blu-ray player to feature a hard drive built into it. You can rip CDs right onto it, and store audio, video and picture files right on your Blu-ray player. Purchased movies can also be downloaded and stored directly from Vudu.

Unfortunately, the BD590 doesn’t rip DVDs or Blu-ray discs, but that’s not entirely surprising. It may play ripped DVD files though, and we’ll find that out as more details come out. LG’s BD590 hits in late spring/early summer of 2010 at an as of yet unannounced price.'

Not only did you list things the PS3 can do like;
It’s got built in WiFi connectivity(PS3)
It’s DLNA compliant so you can stream audio and video from your home computer and it’s got access to some pretty cool online services like Netflix and Vudu.(PS3 again)
Oh, and did we mention a 250GB hard drive?(PS3 again! BUT THE PS3's is UPGRADABLE and I'm not too sure about this blu-ray if it is or not)
You can rip CDs right onto it, and store audio, video and picture files(PS3 again)
. Purchased movies can also be downloaded (Someone really hasn't used the PS3)

So let me ask this why isn't the PS3 top, afterall it has most of the features.

Because it wouldn't be fair, besides the PS3 is Crowned Honorable, in other words PS3 sh1ts on all of these players.

LOL PROPS for OP, the first thing i thought of when i read the first blu ray capabilities was PS3 does all this, and on top of that, plays games...so how the hell is it better then a ps3? actualy, how is ps3 not in top 5 if its better then the first place? the people who made this pathetic list need to buy a ps3 first. on top of games, having 3d, and constant support from Sony puts it head and shoulders above anything in the entertainment industry that is designed to be next to your TV, period.

Raoh3138d ago

and there you have it, all those sites that wanted to pit the ps3 against the 360 netflix calling the ps3 a tragedy,

even after not only sony, netflix and other normal people that could actually read, it was said that the disc based netflix was temporary until spring 2010.. can now get ready to redo their comparison

would be if it was a receiver as well.
