Design and Setup of the LG BD670 3D Blu-ray Player
The BD670 is very slim and light. So light in fact, that I think you could attach it to a wall behind a flat screen with some sturdy 3M sticky tape (not a recommendation, do not try this at home!). There is very little to the face of the unit and the front display is small, taking a minimalistic approach. The BD670 has one HDMI output, optical audio, component video, composite and Ethernet input. Even though it has component video output, it doesn’t have much value as the resolution is limited to 480p on it. This player also has integrated WiFi, which makes getting the network features going a piece of cake.
Setting up the BD670 was pretty straightforward and all I really had to do was connect the HDMI cable to the TV and plug in an Ethernet cable. What I was really interesting in seeing were the player’s various picture settings. The player has the option of selecting either YCbCr or RGB colorspace, but no way to specify 4:4:4 or 4:2:2. Through our testing we did prove that the player outputs 4:4:4 when selecting YCbCr and always outputs deep color.
