LG BD-390 Blu-ray DVD Player Review

Get the most out of your DVD player with the LG BD-390 where you can not only watch Blu-ray and standard DVDs in 1080p but also stream online videos with its built in Wi-fi. Find out what else you can get for its $249 price tag.

What You Need To Know

  • This Blu-ray player is a little larger than we're used to seeing, mainly because of all the outputs.
  • Outputs include HDMI Out, Component Out, Composite Out, Co-Ax and Digital Optical Audio Out, and a 7.1 Analog Audio Out.
  • The design does make up for the size and will fit in with the rest of your home theater components just fine.
  • There's even a USB port in the front for easy access to your media.
  • This player has the most features we've ever reviewed, including Wi-fi, access to lots of video streaming services and supports BD-Live with 1 gig of storage.
  • Each feature works pretty well.
  • Connecting the Wi-fi can be a little confusing but once that's set up, the player is ready to go.
  • Video streaming services include YouTube, Netflix's Instant Queue and paid subscriptions like CinemaNow, VooDoo and more.
  • It's one of the best web interfaces we've seen on a Blu-ray player.
  • The quality is also as good as we expected: details are relatively sharp and the colors look great.
  • The load times are extremely fast for a stand-alone player, but still not as fast as the PS3.
  • Overall, you should be really pleased with this player.


  • $249 (On Google) 


  • Buy. You can spend the extra $50 on a PlayStation 3 but this LG player is easy to use, has access to more streaming video and looks just as good. (How do we rate gadgets?)

    Wow that is a great Blu Ray player. If I didn't already have a LG BLu Ray disc drive I would probably ask for this for christmas. Terminator Salvation sucks.
