LG HB405SU 5.1 Blu-ray Home Cinema System

by Franz Bicar

The LG HB405SU 5.1 Blu-ray Home Cinema System is exactly what you need if you prefer watching movies in the comfort of your home. At £190, the LG HB405SU is probably one of the cheapest fully stacked home cinema system out in the market today.

Out of the box, you get 5 tiny speakers and one medium sized sub woofer. Don’t let the tiny speakers fool you, these are enough to make your heart pound. At the heart of this one-box system is a top quality Blu-ray player. It can give 1080p high resolution images that are more than twice as detailed as a similar DVD. The main player measures around 430mm wide and 62.5 high and weighs around 4Kg. All these are covered in an all black shiny finish with a stylish design that will be the center piece for your living room.

The HB405SU features one HDMI input, one Composite output, one Component output, an Ethernet port, one Optical input, and a USB port. The LG HB405SU also features LG Netcast with YouTube, 1080P Upscaling, and BD-Live. That’s quite remarkable for a kit priced around £190.

As most of you know by now, audio quality is more important than volume. The LG HB405SU can deliver both audio quality and volume. As mentioned, the system comes with 5 Satellite Speakers rather than tallboy speakers - do not let this put you off. They sound unbelievable and are really nice to tuck away. The speaker set also has a rather nice subwoofer giving you the bass to make you really feel there. The LG HB405SU can deliver a great HD surround sound performance from Dolby True HD (DTS) which is the ultimate Home Cinema experience.

Also, the LG HB405SU comes with 1080P upscaling feature that improves a Standard Definition (SD) quality to a Full High Definition (FHD) 1080P with HDMI connection. It means you can watch your favourite DVDs in high-definition quality.

LG also made sure that the HB405SU won’t get left behind when it comes to internet connectivity. You can watch your favourite videos or channels on YouTube or watch TV shows or movies instantly from Netflix. With YouTube from LG Netcast you can access videos from around the world which are uploaded to YouTube. With an easy search facility and the ability to sign in with a YouTube account, finding your favourite videos is easy and simple.

As a DLNA device, you can access music, photos & videos from a PC, laptop, mobile phone & other DLNA devices and play it directly on the HB405SU. Pretty neat stuff for a cheap package don’t you think?
