Sharp BD-HP20

  • Conclusion: While the BD-HP20 shows you don’t have to spend big to get Blu-ray into your life, it’s not one of the best examples of a player we’ve ever seen. Okay, so it’s a little unfair to pitch it against the other products here, as they’re all home cinema systems with audio included, but even on its own merits Sharp’s player is something of a disappointment.
  • Pros: A standalone player, the BD-HP20 is temptingly cheap compared to say the Pioneer LX01BD . It succeeds in delivering excellent Blu-ray pictures, thankfully, along with a quick power-on mode that shaves seconds off the sluggish start-up time that afflicts most Blu-ray players. Because in gadgetworld, there’s little much more annoying than prolonged start-up times…
  • Cons: …Irritatingly, though, this quick start function actually uses more power by keeping the player in a sort of semi-standby mode, so green-minded users will switch the thing off anyway. And with BD Profile 1.0 support only, both BonusView and BD-Live content are off the menu. Shame.

  • Summary: Let’s cut to the chase: Sharp isn’t the first name you think of when someone talks about disc players. It might have a fine reputation for flatscreen TVs, but the Japanese giant has always struggled to compete with the likes of Denon, Pioneer and Sony with DVD. Can it do any better with Blu-ray? The answer, surprisingly, is yes.

  • Conclusion: Przetestowaliśmy pierwszy dostępny na naszym rynku odtwarzacz Blu-ray Sharpa. BD-HP20S prezentuje się atrakcyjnie, a jego obudowa została wykonana z dobrej jakości tworzyw. Na jej przedniej, lustrzanej ściance, umieszczono nietypowo - po prawej stronie – szufladę napędu, zaś na środku zamontowano bardzo mały i nieczytelny wyświetlacz.
  • Pros: Ostry, z nasyconymi kolorami obraz, Dobry dźwięk, Zaawansowana konfiguracja dekoderów audio
  • Cons: Ograniczony zestaw gniazd, Brak obsługi BD Live

  • Conclusion: Ce lecteur n'est pas donné. En effet, on le trouve à environ 400 Euros. Certes, il est le plus rapide à l'exécution mais procure une image moins bien définie que celle délivrée par le lecteur Sony BDP-S300. Ses décodeurs intégrés feront peut être la différence pour des personnes qui ne sont pas équipées d'un amplificateur adéquat mais qui seront alors limités au 5.1 sur des formats comme le DTS HD ou le Dolby True HD.
  • Pros: HDMI 1.3, Mode 24p, Décodeurs audio intégrés, Relative rapidité d'exécution, Consommation électrique
  • Cons: Non compatibilité avec JPEG, MP3 et DivX
