The LG BD640 is a mid-cost Blu-ray player. This player is equipped with Dolby TrueHD Digital Plus sound, which offers up to 7.1 channels of high-quality audio. The SimpLink function of the BD640 allows you to connect all your LG devices with HDMI so that you can control them with one remote. This player shows Blu-ray content in 1080p, and upscales standard DVDs to near HD. The Bonus View feature of the BD640 provides picture-in-picture access to Blu-ray Disc special features, so that you can go back and forth between movie scenes and bonus features on the disc. This model differs from the lower cost BD630 model in that it has WiFi capability (with an included adapter) instead of just an Ethernet port, for easier access to NetFlix, Vudu, CinemaNow and YouTube, as well as BD Live (which offers additional online content). This model differs from the higher cost BD650 model in that the BD650 has DLNA capability (which allows you to access and stream content from other DLNA-enabled devices like PCs), LG's SmartTV platform (which with a simple dashboard gives you access to a wide variety of content sites like Hulu Plus, CinemaNow, YouTube and many others), and is 3D-enabled. However, the BD650's WiFi adapter is sold seperately, while the BD640's is included. The LG BD640 Blu-ray player has USB 2.0 playback, so that you can view content from a variety of devices.
