Little background on me: I owned or have owned a BH100, BH200, BD300, BD370 and BD390. So pretty much every LG Blu-ray player except the 270.

Pros:
Fast - I noticed DVD and Blu-ray loaded just a wee bit faster than my LG BD390. The difference wasn't amazing, but maybe a few seconds.

VuDu, Netflix, Pandora etc - They work just as they should. VuDu is identical to that on the BD390, but Netflix is the new version that allows you to view new movies/TV to Instant, has Genres, collections etc. No, it's not EVERYTHING that [...] offers, but you probably have a rotating selection of 300 different programs to check out if you don't feel like breaking out the laptop.

GracieNotes - Wow. Freakin' awesome. I managed to pull song information from a DVD, BD and a 'movie' file. As an added bonus; Hit the Display button while watching something (I assume DVD/BD only) and at the very bottom is 'Movie Information'. Click it and it will tell you what you are watching (small picture), synopsis, actor names etc. Woah!

250GB HD - Big selling point and works well. You are able to copy directly from an external HD/USB to the intern HD or via WiFi. Your choice. Obviously a wired copy will be faster than WiFi, so I set mine to copy 100GB from my external HD and went to bed. Woke up, and watched some stuff. Works very well and was fast. Maybe it can be upgraded? Out of the box it had 246GB out of 250GB available. So everything else is stored on internal memory. I bet this can be upped...

WiFi - Faster. Before, VuDu was a bit choppy, but now it was perfect.

DNLA - Works fine on my MacBook (some had issues?

I purchased the BD590 from Best Buy a couple of days after it first appeared in stock. I have had some experience with LG Bluray before since I own the also excellent BD390 so when I needed another one for a different room in the house the newer model LG was at the top of my list.

Having owned it for a few weeks I have the following to note.

Pros

1. Fast Blu-Ray loading times. Very crisp clear image and fortunately since I own a receiver capable of decoding Lossless HD formats I really like the sound as well. Does the Blu ray format justice
2, My favorite aspect of this and the BD 390 by far is the VUDU functionality. I think Vudu is a tremendous service (perhaps will get even better now that's its been purchased by Wal-Mart). To have a large library of 1080p HD available at your fingertips is fantastic and the LG does a nice job displaying very pleasing audio and video off Vudu. I would buy this for this feature alone.
3, Although no shortage of Netflix ready devices in my HT lineup having this and other internet sources such as Pandora are nice options.
4. I read some complaints about the new interface compared to the older LGs but to my eyes its nicer looking and just as easy to navigate
5. I used Ethernet to connect this player but did test out the 802.11n and was able to connect to my Airport Extreme powered network with no problems
6. CD ripping is a great feature and I was able to archive a library of 200 CDs or so with little trouble. Gracenote does a nice job tagging the tracks.

Cons
I really didn't find much not to like about this player. Mostly just nice to haves.

LG has made a great product and it has slow mo for blu-ray disc. To many that may not see like anything special but my other 2 (Sony BDP-BX1 and Samsung BDP-1590) blu-ray players do not have this feature for any type of disc being played. Overall the unit does everything very well to excellent. The speed loading of blu-ray is not more impressive than that of my almsot 2 year old sony blu-ray but still fast enough for me.

Internet connections were a breeze via wired or wireless though I wished it would retain the wireless setting (SSID and passwords)when you switch to a wired setting. The online offerings are very impressive and all work: Google's Picasa; YouTube; AccuWeather; Netflix with a free trial offer; CinemaNow; VUDU with one free rental; and PANDORA. I hope they add more apps with software/firmware updates.

The remote is large, easy to hold and has all the buttons needed to use all the features of the unit and also will in my case control the most basic of functions of my TV: power and volume.

Having the large 250GB HD is a luxury but not a necessity as the front USB port can be used to access an external HD at a excellent speed. So you could really save about a $100 by buying the identical BD570 less the HD. I like the luxury, lol.

I do not like the front panel having a flip down panel that always drops down to insert/eject a disc but not too much of an issue. The flip door becomes an issue when you need to insert a USB stick or cable then the door has to remain down. In addition when they designed these new LG units they should have added an additional USB port in the rear.

But that is all I can find fault with the unit.
