In Trusted Reviews opinion the BD570 is a great, modern looking Blu-ray player with support for many formats and a long list of features. The picture quality is extremely sharp too. It's a pity that the incredible looking menu is sluggish to react and NetCast's online content cannot compete with that of its closest rival, the Sony BDP-S570. This unfortunately makes the Sony a better buy, as it is also 3D compatible and sells for a similar price.

“very good” (84 out of 100 points)

“The new BD 570 from LG is cheaper, but not better than its predecessor model: It plays less file formats over the network and shows blurry photos. Overall, it scores points as a first-class Blu-ray player, as a wireless net worker, and with proficient USB functions.”
