One player to rule your living room.

Good: Brilliant Blu-ray playback; Great DVD upscaling; Smooth network streaming; Firmware updates improve & add functionality; Built-in Wi-Fi
Bad: Slow menu browsing for USB devices; Firmware updates can get slow; Limited channels in UAE
Price: AED 1,100

The DLNA feature also means that once connected to a certified device, you can stream movies, pictures and music off of it. In fact, the main menu is simplified with the following categories as seen in the picture below.

Movie, Photo and Music contains content that can be accessed from a DLNA device or through Wi-Fi if the BD670 is connected to your home networked computer, or a USB hard drive connected from the front panel. The Premium content for the BD670 depends on your region, for instance in US there’s a Netflix and Hulu Plus channel, but within the UAE we have the following channels listed below.

While the other channels are self-explanatory, FunSpot is basically a collection of mini-games which I highly suggest you do not play because not only do they take ages to load, but are also not much fun. vTuner on the other hand is an extensive library of internet radio channels where you can find pretty much any channel you can think of. All of the channels are sorted by region and genres, although you might also want to check out Popular and Editor’s Pick as they seem to contain most of the famous channels within a category. Streaming videos on YouTube and the vTuner was a breeze.

As for the settings menu, you can have a quick look at the video below to see what each sub-menu has.
