Thumbs up LG announces BD390 BD player-Wireless built in

I was wondering when these would start to pop up. It will certainly help BD-Live considering most users don't want to run a a cat5 cable to their entertainment system. I expect to hear similar announcements from other BD makers.

BD390 Network Blu-ray Player

The BD390 joins the growing list of LG products offering Netflix streaming. The player also offers upscaling of DVDs to 1080p and wireless networking to access entertainment anywhere in the home.

The BD390 also features:

* BD-Live content and 1GB of built-in memory
* BonusView with picture-in-picture
* Dolby TrueHD, Digital Plus and DTS-HD Advanced Digital Out
I also found this very interesting.

This is LG's new 1080p plasma series with 50- and 60-inch models that have 600Hz FluidMotion technology and a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio.

Ok, honestly...are we going to see any difference between 600Hz and 120Hz refresh rates?

I was wondering the same thing when I read about the new 240hz displays coming out. Even that seems like overkill so 600hz certainly sounds like overkill to me.

More TV news please. This is going to make buying a TV next fall so much easier as more TV companies hit the 1,000,000:1 numbers and more are using LED. CAN'T WAIT!

I agree that having Wi-fi built in is a great idea but some of us do. I have 2 wireless 5 port bridges set upstairs and downstairs on both of my entertainment centers. I invested in them awhile back so that I wouldnt have to worry about it. They have been great.

That is what I did about a year ago. It is simple and easy to set up plus a lot of wireless routers can be turned into a bridge mode. Problem is most people don't know about wireless bridges but they do know how to set up wireless. I think this will be a much easier solution for people who aren't to technical.

The 600Hz refresh is just marketing jargon. Plamsas run at 60Hz, but refresh each pixel 10-12 times (typically), hence you get 600-720Hz.

I have been trying to get an ethernet to wireless adapter working with my LG BD300 Blu-ray/Netflix player without any luck. This player is a great idea. I just gave up and will use my PS3 for whatever streaming options that becomes available with it, it connects and works great with my wireless network.
