It comes in at just under $300 at Amazon.
The latest in 3D Blu-ray players is the LG BX580. It does HDMI 1.4 and it can handle 3D content right out of the box, unlike a lot of other players.
Aside from the 3D capabilities, the BX580 doesn't do anything too far out of the ordinary. It upscales DVDs to 1080p, and plays back a variety of video and audio formats including DivX, MKV, AVI and XviD. It can access internet based content from providers like CinemaNow, Netflix, Vudu, and Pandora.
The BX580 also sports built-in WiFi that works on the 2.4Ghz band, a USB port for watching movies and listening to music and, of course, the ability to play back Blu-ray movies in 1080p/24.
The MSRP on the LG BX580 is $399, but it's currently selling on Amazon for $299.86.
