Blu-ray home-theater-in-a-box (HTIB) systems are still a rarity—there are currently only a few models available from Panasonic, Samsung and Sony. What’s more, they’re pricey. Sony’s BDV-IS1000 lists for $1,000, keeping it just outside the realm of most mainstream consumers. But the biggest hurdle, as we found out, is simply that they don’t always work.
the speakers are large, big enough to house three drivers--two woofers and one tweeter--but the AV receiver/DVD player and subwoofer are nice and small.
The bottom line: The LG LFD790 wins points for its cool looks, low price, and decent feature set, but a variety of design and interface miscues make it tough to recommend.
