Of the new model year '2009' Blu Ray players, we own the LG BD370, Samsung BD-P1600, and a PS3. By far, the BD370 is the nicest for Blu Ray content. Loading is FAST and the drive is completely silent (this is not the case on the BD-P1600 by Samsung). Piano Black finish on the face is plastic, and looks good. We have found that it does not scratch easily too! The rest of the case is black-ish metal and sturdy.

One of the great things about the LG BD370 is you can customize the look of the interface on your TV. There are 4 themes and all are in high-definition. The remote on the BD370 changed from the BD300, and I feel it was a step down. It's got a faux-leather finish on it - why? No idea. The one improvement is buttons that don't get used much are hidden behind a panel on the remote.

Netflix 'Watch Instantly' is very cool and the setup is literally 30-40 seconds if you already have an account. Just after we got ours, it alerted us that a firmware update was available! It added CinemaNow - we hadn't used CinemaNow before, but a quick registration on their site and connecting was just as easy as Netflix. Rented a couple movies to try it out - VERY cool. YouTube is also available on the player and it's AWESOME. I'd easily compare it with an AppleTV, though believe it or not, the BD370 is a bit faster at searching and playing YouTube videos - it also does them in Full Screen, no problem.

One odd thing we've noticed... with Netflix and CinemaNow and YouTube we have only watched 3 or 4 movies on Blu Ray. So much other content available that this player is really a STEAL - it's a fantastic Blu Ray player (audio and video as good as you imagine it would be), but WOW is it awesome to have a player that does so much other stuff.

While LG broke new ground with their BD300, the first Blu-ray player to include Netflix online streaming and YouTube, the BD370 is simply more of the same, with slight improvements to their already quick disc loading times, but little to no improvement to their Achilles heel: video performance on DVD upconversion and 1080i Blu-ray content.

Choosing among current Blu-ray Disc players revolves around two things: performance (audio and video) and online content access. If performance is the most important element for you, then LG player should probably not be your first choice. The BD370 is decent at DVD upconversion but it fails to properly de-interlace 1080i material. 1080i is used for many nature documentaries and concert films on Blu-ray Disc due to the underlying frame rates not being compatible with 1080p/24 fps encoding. Because the player can't detect and correct for the underlying 2:2 or 3:2 cadence, 1080i material is actually resolved at half resolution (1920x540 pixels), which means you effectively lose half of those precious details from your high definition picture. It's true that 1080i content represents a fairly small portion of what's available on Blu-ray (most discs are 1080p at 24 frames/second) but people generally buy a Blu-ray player expecting top notch performance on ALL material and you won't get this with the LG BD370.

But the player's online content access is strong, with full BD-Live support, Netflix online streaming and YouTube. Between Netflix and YouTube, you get an enormous selection of professional (Netflix) and amateur (YouTube) videos that will keep you entertained for hours at no additional cost (above the standard Netflix subscription fee, that is).

My 5 year old finally killed the DVD player in his bedroom and, rather than buying a cheap replacement, I decided to give him my (not-so) oldPhilips DVP5990 HDMI 1080p Upscaling DVD Player. The slow response times to its remote, especially when moving back a scene, which happens often when the aforementioned five year old needs my attention, had been a thorn in my side since we brought it home.

After doing a bit of research, I couldn't find a plain old DVD player, at an acceptable price point, that fit my needs any better than the one I had and hated the slow response time from its remote.

Then I started researching Blu-ray players. I'm a gadget girl. I constantly drool over the newest technology, but I've been sitting on the fence in the whole high definition disc wars (which was fortunate, since I would have thrown my lot in with HD-DVD) for years now. By the end of the war, I was so irritated that I continued my fence sitting even though one side of it was now barren.

I have 600+ DVDs, and perfectly fine upconverting machines. I don't need a Blu-ray player. So there!

Then my Netflix envelopes started advertising their streaming service via devices that took it right to your TV (I'd been using it via my computer for sometime). Eh, I don't need a standalone player. So there, times two!

However, when I started my research and found out there was a Blu-Ray player that also streamed Netflix to my TV? I have to admit: my curiosity was piqued.

So when the kid's DVD player died, I read the reviews, both critic and consumer.
