Blu-ray players have come down in price considerably and now it seems the fight is on for features and market share. LG has tackled this problem by filling its new BD590 with all of the network features you could want, including built-in 802.11n wireless, Netflix, VUDU, Pandora, YouTube and more. But they went a few steps further, adding USB connectivity for removable drives and even an internal 250GB hard drive. You can use the drive to transfer files from USB or discs (like a CD) to the internal storage and thus copy movies, music and photos to the drive for easy playback. The on-screen display then lets you recall specific files, or play back an entire folder or the contents of the drive. This essentially turns your LG Blu-ray player into a media server that can be used by the whole family.

And LG tells me there is NO UPGRADE to increase the Wifi Distance at ALL -- Do not buy this if your router is on the other side of your House, unless your going to Cat-5 Hard wire for the net.
