5. [[artnid:296157|LG BD370 Blu-ray player]] (RRP: $401)
The LG BD370 is an excellent Blu-ray player in most areas. It boasts excellent HD picture quality, BD-Live connectivity and USB playback.
While we found the LG BD370 to be a good option for Blu-ray discs, it didn't fare as well in upconverting regular DVDs. In our tests, though, it loaded discs in a snappy 34 seconds.
The on-screen menus are easy to use, and the player can also access online content via the Ethernet port.
Excellent DVD upscaling, very good Blu-ray picture quality, can connect to YouTube, can play and display media from USB 2.0 thumb drives, BD-Live capable.
No 7.1-channel analog outputs.
