Sharp BD-HP20H

CNET
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: Sharp is to be commended for being so competitive on price with its debut Blu-ray player, and for delivering some profoundly good HD picture quality. But its lack of some key features ultimately makes it feel too much like a first-generation trial run.
  • Pros: 1080p/24Hz output; quick start option; HD picture quality; HDMI 1.3 output.
  • Cons: Lots of multimedia formats it won't play; no Blu-ray 'resume'; no Profile 1.1; disappointing DVD upscaling; no DTS HD support.

Sharp BD-HP20U

CNET
23 March 2008
  • Summary: The Sharp BD-HP20U is a decent Blu-ray player that can load some discs superfast, but there are better options out there.
  • Pros: The Sharp BD-HP20U's Quick Start feature loads certain discs superfast; excellent video quality using 1080p/24 output.
  • Cons: The Sharp BD-HP20U only supports Blu-ray profile 1.0; no onboard decoding for high-resolution DTS soundtracks or bit-stream output; poor 1080i deinterlacing on Blu-ray movies; no Ethernet port for firmware updates; poor performance with video-based DVDs; Quick Start feature guzzles power even when the player is off.
