Default Blu-ray player with harddrive space?

A few years ago, I bought an LG BD590 with a 250gb internal harddrive. It's an awesome player and I've had zero issues with it. I can store all my music collection on it, digital pictures, and even digital copies of movies, so I don't have to constantly put the disc in. I want to buy another one for a second TV upstairs in the den, but the BD590 isn't available anymore. LG's newer model is the BD690, which is a 3D player, which I have no interest in. It also has a 250gb internal harddrive, but the Amazon.com user reviews aren't good.

Do any other manufacturers make Blu-ray players with internal harddrives that I can load with media through a USB port off a flash drive like the LG BD590? I've searched and can't seem to find any. I don't know why other companies wouldn't make them.

Thanks!

I do not know who makes a BDP with an internal HDD but I can say that I use a HDD docking port,http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/Error....=/Product.aspx and have a 2TB in it and plug it into my BDP via the USB port.
You can pop the HDD out or the docking port easily and pop it into another docking port hooked to your computer to add files or you can just unhook it from your BDP and then plug it into your computer to add files.I have three docking ports and have one,2TB HDD hooked to my satellite HD box and use it as a PVR.
So I'm just saying you might consider the docking port as an option.

Hye Thanks Terry. Small world. I lived in Lindsay for quite a few years, first as a student at SSFC, then got a job in the area, then went to Trent U., but continued living just outside of Lindsay!

Anyways, I wasn't aware that a Blu-Ray player that didn't have an HDD would come with a USB port, so I never thought an external HDD would be an option. So, what's a docking port? Is that something built in or an add-on?

I grew up in Peterboro and moved here many years ago,small world.
A docking port allows you to easily remove a HDD and can be attached to almost anything,here is a link to tiger direct.ca where I have bought mine.
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...746&CatId=2785
If you check out my home theatre gallery you can see a couple of them.
There is a large button on them that allows you to pop them out even while running and pop the HDD into another one.
I have one as an external 2TB HDD attached to my computer,a 2TB HDD attached to my BDP which I sometimes plug into my AVR and a 2TB HDD attached to my satellite receiver.
I find them very useful and handy.
If you get one just make sure it will handle 2TB if that is the size of HDD you want.I think there is a model that only supports 1TB but I'm not positive on that. Mine all support 2TB and I have had no problems with any of them.
I can fill a HDD and easily pop it out and pop in another HDD,very handy.
Good luck on however you achieve your goal.
