The LG BD670 3D Blu-ray Player On The Bench
The LG performed fairly well on our bench tests, passing just about everything. There were no options for noise reduction, so that led to an automatic fail. I felt the player was quite responsive and relatively speedy compared to some of the slower Blu-ray players on the market. Overall, the LG had very good deinterlacing and HD performance.
There were options for RGB and YCbCr colorspaces, but no specific 4:4:4, 4:2:2 options and deep color appeared to be enabled by default with no way to turn it off. The LG has special picture modes for movie, standard and vivid and we ran all 3 for RGB to see how the color data was being manipulated. Standard mode definitely introduced the least amount of error, so we went with that mode for testing the YCbCr mode. HDMI data was much better in the YCbCr mode, so our recommendation with this player is to set the picture mode to “standard” and the color mode to YCbCr for best results.
