LG’s newest Blu-ray player might be cool enough to sign me on to Hi-Def DVD. That’s right, I’ve resisted. Not for fear of the format wars, for fear of Blu-ray availability and cost. Integrated into the LG BD300 Network Blu-ray disc player is a virtual Netflix Player that will allow Netflix customers to stream over 12,000 movies and TV shows to their TV. I recently reviewed the Netflix Player and thought it was a great device. LG isn’t my top pick for a Blu-ray player, but if it’s under $500 (probably have to be $300 for me to be game) as LG claims, these things will ship like hotcakes on a cake day.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
