CES 2010: LG shows off wireless BD player with 250GB HDD LG Electronics has launched the BD590 at CES this week, a wireless Blu-ray player that includes a 250GB HDD built-in.
The player will also have the online movie service VUDU integrated. Users can download and rent films in SD or HD.

Additionally, the player can rip and copy CDs using the drive. The new "MusicID" feature will let users hear "an entire song playing within a movie or TV show using the BD590s remote control."

As with most BD-Live LG players, Netflix, CinemaNow, YouTube and Pandora are integrated. New to the BD590 are Picasa and Accuweather.

"LG is committed to offering consumers easier access to more content on demand, which is reflected in our 2010 line of Blu-ray products with new content partners, advanced technology and unique design," adds Peter Reiner, senior VP of marketing at LG Electronics USA.

can we use that 250gb to play video files(avi. for example) and such? or is that strictly for the vudu service?

I wonder if this player can play back the M2TS files ripped from a blu-ray disc and stored on a hard drive?
