Summary: I got this BD player free with my 46" LCD tv as a deal. There is one major flaw that the player has, and it's well known since I have looked around on Google, and have experienced this problem myself, hence, why I have had to get another BD player, a Panasonic one, which I chose. But I will tell you about this flaw lastly.
Pros: nice picture and sound, presentation is good
Cons: eventual 'incompatible' disc error which should make people steer clear from this player
Summary: As this was one of the first blu ray plaers I have to be honest that I did not expect it to be the greatest Blu ray player. However I was pleasantly surprised when I opened up the packaging and put it on for the very first time. This blu ray player has some great features such as 'Full High Definition' playback and 'Dolby True HD Sound' so you are able to get the best out of the blu ray's that you purchase.
Pros: Great picture, vibrant colours
Cons: Problems with playback on some blu rays but can be solved with firmware update.
Summary: The Sharp BD-HP20 is a budget Blu-Ray disc player. You can purchase one for around £300 on Amazon, or for around £70 - £100 cheaper on ebay. The machine itself is very stylish with a shiny silver frontage. The main display is shown through this reflective surface, which makes for an impressive looking machine. The downside to all this shininess, is that it collects dust incredibly quickly due to static.
Excerpt: I have done some reviews on Blu-Ray discs and some people don't understand that they are different to DVD players in many ways. Last year our family got a HD TV like millions of other people as the prices went down after the world cup. Our old DVD Player was good but we couldn't take full advantage of the quality so decided to get a Blu-Ray player. What Is It? The Sharp BD HP20H is a Blu-Ray and DVD player for HD TV's.

Excerpt: Cuidado con los reproductores Blu ray de SHARP, despues de comprarlo y apenas utilizarlo 2 meses, da problemas de lectura, se envia a servicio técnico, por cierto bastante malo el trato, y le cambian la óptica, lo entregan 2 meses más tarde, pues otra vez al mes y medio vuelve a fallar, y dicen que le cambian la lente, por lo que se reclama un aparato nuevo, nada de opticas, apenas responden ni dan señales de vida, y despues de tanto reclamar, lo sorprendente es que el...
Summary: Vu la critique élogieuse notamment sur son-vidéo j'ai craqué pour ce lecteur à Noël malgré le tarif... résultat: lecture Blu-Ray formidable, magnifique sur ma TV full HD 52" mais... 5 minutes pour arriver à lire le disc (tout neuf lui aussi), plantage réguliers au cours de la lecture de Cd-audio, obligé de couper...
Summary: En otroligt fin blu-ray spelare. Snygg design. Fantastisk bild via HDMI och snabb är den också. Bra gjort av Sharp. Ger 9 av 10 för den är lite känslig för DVD+RW och DVD-RW och att firware förmodligen kan inte uppdateras i den europeiska versionen.
