                Purchased my BD590 April 2011. Use it and enjoy it frequently to play DVD(s) and watch Netflix movies and (older) TV shows. I have not been able to download anything to the HD. Probably need to read the manual again. I thought the BD590 was going to be like a DVR but so far that has not been the case.

                        I purchased this product because it offered more for less money. It has performed admirably providing all that I expected. The BD590 is compact, easy to set up and use in an attractive package.

                            I did extensive research on this product before purchase. Compared to similarly equipped Blu-rays from other manufacturers, this is the best Blu-ray player that you can buy for the money. It has all of the functions that I wanted except full internet access which requires an additional device. Pros: fully functional, 250 GB internal storage, Wi-Fi capable, home computer sharing, NetCast enabled, and great quality upconvert on regular DVDs. Cons: difficult to interface with functions through hunt and peck input screen controlled by remote, finicky on wireless interface with home computer (looses connection if another wireless device is used nearby) Overall: pleased with the purchase and would buy from LG again, but would like to see NetCast add more features.

                                This unit is not just another blu-ray player, this unit will wired or wirelessly connect to your network and you can browse other computers using the built in network browser. I have a media server that I use to serve up any media I choose to view on my server from photos, music and movies right to my HDTV via the HDMI cable. I don't own a blu-ray disc yet but I haven't seen one I want available yet or just too lazy to look since I love playing with this unit and all it's features and functionality. I haven't even gotten to netflix and pandora and tons of other streaming media. Combine the 250 gig hard drive so you can play direct from a disc source instead of wireless which can sometimes due to normal interference cause issues streaming the data wirelessly. All in all this is an outstanding unit and you wont regret your purchase.

                                        The BD590 Blu Ray seems to be mainly fine and while only utilized 3 times, it had one repetitve issue with Vudu - It has no sound on the HDX setting and Vudu says it iwaiting for a LG update to allow the processing of 5.1 audio. They don't know if, or when, such an update is forthcoming; accordingly, I have exchanged the unit since even the BD690 makes no mention of processing 5.1 sound.

                                            I have owned the BD590 for about 2 months now and it has opened up a world on my HDTV that is comparable to the best Streaming Video, CD Rip & Store, Blu Ray Player, and DVD upscale Players on the Market. I can just insert a CD and rip it to the internal drive and it will play back in psuedo 5.1. All DTS and Dolby decoding takes place in the player so you don't have to have a ridiculously high dollar receiver (although I would recommend one with at least 2 TOSLink inputs). I'm an electronics geek so I follow C|Net on the Internet and now I can watch their shows and reviews on the TV with no stutter or lagging. I also have a subscription to NetFlix and I use the player to play movies, although NetFlix only streams out 2.1 sound the BD590 converts it into a psuedo 5.1. One thing I ABSOLUTELY have to mention is that it takes the Eagles "H*ll Freezes Over" DVD and the 5.1 sound and video are EXTRAORDINARY. BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK, HANDS DOWN!
