Available next month, the LG BD300 Network Blu-ray Disc Player will be offered at national retailers such as Best Buy and Circuit City, and specialty retailers nationwide at a suggested retail price of $399.95.
Picture-in-picture access to Blu-ray disc special features allows consumers to toggle between their favorite movie scenes and bonus features on the disc.
Standard DVDs are upscaled to 1080p. Advanced audio format decoding includes Dolby TrueHD / Digital Plus and DTS-HD Advanced Digital Out.
The USB Media Plus function allows for the playback of their favorite photos, music and video files from a USB drive directly to their TV screen.
