LG's BP520 3D-Capable Blu-ray Player is a great way to take advantage of the ultra-high resolution available on HDTVs, since it offers full HD 1080p resolution. With support for both 2D and 3D Blu-ray discs, you can enjoy all the latest Hollywood flicks from the comfort of your couch. And when you pop in a DVD, you can see it in near-HD quality since the player allows upscaling to full HD 1080p.

You can also download an app to your iOS/Android smart phone that allows you to cut out the old standby remote -- just kick back and use your phone to control your media rather than searching around on the coffee table for the controller.

Many Blu-ray players and TVs are now able to connect to the Internet, and this one is no exception. It's Wi-Fi ready, so it can connect to the Internet wirelessly when you purchase a Wi-Fi dongle. Or if you prefer, it also has an Ethernet port for a wired connection. But once it's on your network, you'll have even more choices for what to watch. This player supports LG's Smart TV platform, so you can access paid and free apps like Netflix, Hulu Plus, Pandora and more.

An essential element to any home theater experience is the sound -- and the BP520 supports advanced audio formats like Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. Using the front panel USB port, you can also display photos and enjoy media and music stored on a USB flash drive. One more handy feature of the LG BP520 Blu-ray Disc Player is that if you have other LG devices, you'll be able to control them all with a single remote. So for convenience, high-performance and networked options, this disc player certainly delivers.
